May the Fourth Be With You. Wild Surge's 15th Issue is here.

Wild Surge's 15th Issue theme is Star Wars and what better day to release it then May the 4th.

Star Wars goes beyond the cinema more than any other movie franchise. From games, to toys, to books, to comics, to cartoons, to now even live action television shows and off-broadway musicals, the franchise has expanded beyond George Lucas’ dreams and into the creativity of countless individuals who make that galaxy which is far, far away their own.

The year 2019 is shaping up to be a big year for the franchise with the final chapter that started back in 1977 set to hit theatres in December. Add in not one but two Star Wars games being released this year, as well as a new television series debuting on Disney+, Wild Surge thought it’d be a good idea to pay homage to everything Star Wars.

We look at the Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition server Legends of the Old Republic that reworks the entire game into the Star Wars universe. If there is any take away from this issue, it is this. Go check out the amazing work and community @zunath and his team created. I personally was blown away.

@typo_tilly ranks each movie in order and let @Rik_Kirtaniya review Knights of the Old Republic, having never experiencing Star Wars before.

@Fandraxx compares the scores of iconic Star Wars movies as well as gives his impression of Iron Maiden’s Somewhere In Time album.

We also look at Star War toy’s documentaries and how the toys have shaped culture (and have made more money) as much as the movies. Oh, and Corpse’s Corner returns with a special guest. There’s more, but we’ll let you read it for yourself.

    Hey! I was quoted! Now all know of my ignorance ahahah.

    It was nice to see a nod to the Ewok movies. I loved those things as a kid.

    The NWN: EE persistent world Legends of the Old Republic looks amazing!! I can't believe how much they've reworked things. And included space travel. @ashafetov's cover art was inspired by Legends of the Old Republic.

    It was interesting reading Rik's review of Knights of the Old Republic. I had forgotten how clunky the user interface was -- like not being able to switch weapons without bringing up an inventory screen. A retro review of Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2 was on my maybe list for this issue. I was just unable to get to it.

    Watching the Star Wars Holiday Special was a low point in my movie-watching life. Even the ewok adventure movies were far better, being actually entertaining to their target audience. The Holiday Special is just dull, and you only see the famous characters from A New Hope (Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Darth Vader) for up to a few minutes at most. I also watched an episode of the ewoks cartoon, which is -- again -- leagues better than the Holiday Special. Ranking the movies was difficult. Looking back, the prequel trilogy has value as good-bad movies, and the Solo movie would have been better if it featured all new characters. I also wrote a lot more for some of the movies but had to cut the length back to fit it in the article format.
