    How Blizzard Turned A Costly Failure Into Overwatch

    I was a beta tester for SWG. Thought it was pretty great actually.

    George Lucas On His Decision To Break Up With Star Wars

    Let's face facts here. Lucas took a garbage genre (sci-fi in the 70s), used revolutionary lighting and special effects (for the time), and put a real A+ soundtrack in. When you boil it all down that's what Star Wars is. To those of us who lived the hype it was AMAZING. To the kids coming up...
