Because Star Wars

Episode 60

No news items to share with you this week, you have to sit through our Star Wars conversation instead.  Man, how flippin’ sweet were the news to come out of there.  The trailers, the info… Come on December!

Overclocked Remix

We wanted a Star Wars remix, but sadly, there were none to be found.  Building on the amazing werewolf theme that WolfCop brings us, why not continue that with the remix?  This week our remix is “Resurrection by Breakbeat” by none other than djpretzel!

Star Wars: Battlefront II – PC

Star_Wars_Battlefront_II_wallpap

Hey everybody, Jason here, and I’m working on getting a little game night going for Star Wars: Battlefront II!

I’m thinking that we might try to get a little impromptu session this weekend, but would have the formal event going next week maybe Wed or Thu evening?  If you are unfamiliar with the game, it’s a first/third-person shooter with some Battlefield elements set in the Star Wars universe.  If you were lucky enough to jump into the Star Wars Humble Bundle that went down, you should have a copy, otherwise it is available on Steam for $9.99.

Hit us up on twitter or here on the site and let us know if you are interested.

 

This post will be updated with more information and links for downloads needed as we go.

To get online functionality going now that the Gamespy servers have been shutdown, download this script(dropbox link).  Simply run it as an administrator, follow the prompts, and you will be good to go.

As for mods, I ended up installing SW: Battlefront II Ultimate Pack 3.2.1 which brings additional maps, game modes, and some HD textures to the game.  It’s a 5GB download which will add nearly 19GB to your BFII directory just to warn you.  It will not be necessary for you to play online with us though as we will just be connecting to an empty server.
