Knights of the Old Republic recreated using Unreal Engine

Knights of the Old Republic recreated using Unreal Engine

Knights of the Old Republic is easily one of the best Star Wars games out there. Star Wars Galaxies still tops my list, but sadly there's no good way to actually play that one ever again. KOTOR was one of the first times you could really engulf yourself in the Star Wars universe, and really feel like you were making a difference. Unfortunately, time has not been the greatest to this game, and a group of people has decided that it needs a new coat of paint, using Unreal Engine 4.

Forget the mini BB-8, get a life-size one this year

Sphero's BB-8 toy was the must-have item last year for Star Wars fans, with the droid's rolling sphere body and head that stays upright perfectly replicated in miniature form. This year, however, a new form of BB-8 is going to take homes by storm, and this time it's life-size. At the 2016 New York Toy Fair this weekend, toy-maker Spin Master has unveiled a life-size BB-8 from The Force Awakens, and not only is it controlled via remote, but it will respond to voice commands too.

Mimoco Star Wars PowerBot and PowerTube review

Mimoco Star Wars PowerBot and PowerTube review

There used to be a time where I only charged my cell phone every few days, and rarely worried about it actually dying on me. These days, if I don't charge my phone every single night, it will run out of juice before noon on the following day. And if I'm covering a show, or using it heavily, my iPhone 6 might not even last the day. This is why I like having a portable charger in my bag, so that I've always got a way to charge my phone.

The curious case of the Star Wars family portrait

The curious case of the Star Wars family portrait

What you're about to see is a family portrait that includes Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and a third family member. We will not tell you who the third member of the family is here, for that would be a spoiler for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We know that basically every person in the world that wanted to see The Force Awakens has already seen it, but we're still not going to take any chances. Maybe 30 years down the line when The Simpsons have already done so.

Star Wars has inspired many artists, and thanks to their ingenuity we’ve seen creations of all sorts, including drones modified to look like miniature Star Wars spacecraft.

LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens game re-imagines the movie as a comedy

LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens game re-imagines the movie as a comedy

True to LEGO re-interpretive style, the next video game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is a comedic take on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The best way to make this clear is through a new take on the original teaser trailer for the film - you know the one. The one where Finn pops up in the desert to scare the pants off everyone watching. The one where you first saw BB-8 rolling. The one where you see Rey driving her popsicle speeder bike.
