The Internet, and by extension, the world, is a strange place filled with odd creatures known as human beings. Their actions make zero sense at least half of the time, which means zilch (0 x 1/2 = 0). You can’t fight with those numbers, my maths is sound!

I don’t think anyone has experienced great space combat in gaming untile they’ve played at least one Star Wars game AND GET BACK IN YOUR HOLE STARLANCER!..Ahem.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a fantastic tale of a former Jedi relearning the ways of the Force and kicking ass in the process. That comic book series was called Star Wars: Legacy, and it was indeed strong in the Force.

Mobile gaming is huge. I think we sometimes forget just how many people play games on their phones, and fork out big money for the privilege of doing so. Apple has revealed that 2013 was their best ever year for the App Store, raking in a lot of money, usually $1 at a time.
