Review: Star Wars: Republic Commando - Not An Elegant Weapon, But Still A Blast
Super Troopers. A long time ago...well, in 2005, LucasArts took a bit of a risk and threw us all a curveball with a Star Wars offering that eschewed Jedis and lightsabers, the Force, epic dogfights and much of the fantastical heroics that fans expect from the series, in favour of a dark and gritty tactical take on everyone's favourite space opera.

Dragon Age 4 kills multiplayer, goes full single-player, according to report
Dragon Age 4 was at one point "Anthem with dragons," according to a new report, but the combination of Anthem's failure and the success of Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order as a single-player game has convinced EA to just let BioWare make single-player RPG games again.
Report says next Dragon Age will now be single-player only due to Anthem's fortunes, reversing EA's original plans
Report says next Dragon Age will now be single-player only due to Anthem's fortunes, reversing EA's original plans
Developer BioWare's highly anticipated new Dragon Age game is reportedly now a strictly single-player experience, with EA having pivoted its demands for a live-service-style game following the success of Star Wars: The Fallen Order and the failure of Anthem. As reported by Bloomberg's Jason Schreier, sources familiar with the matter say the next Dragon Age title was previously being designed with a heavy multiplayer component. The project reportedly first entered development in 2015, but Bloomberg says that original vision was rebooted by EA and the BioWare in 2017, in a grasp for long-term monetisation.
