– Five Star Wars Games We?d Like to See

With the recent news of EA’s closing of Visceral Studios and move of the Star Wars project there to EA Vancouver, there’s been plenty of speculation on what the revamped game may look like.

Crowfall – Exciting Harvesting Changes & Singapore Bloodbath

My time in Crowfall has been limited to harvesting, crafting, and fooling around in the Eternal Kingdom building. Writing about harvesting and crafting is fairly moot however with the drastic changes coming to harvesting in 5.3.

However, it indicates that the expansion is well underway.
