We’re joined by our guests from Neozaz’s Star Wars in Character podcast for the first part of our epic Star Wars Video Game Trilogy. Over the next three episodes we embark on the largest review of Star Wars video games ever undertaken. This means we don’t just discuss the greatest games based on the films but we also delve into the garbage compactor to rip into the rotten ones too. Episode one takes us from the release of the first Star Wars game, The Empire Strikes Back on Atari’s 2600 console through to Namco’s Star Wars game released on the Nintendo Famicom. Of course, as well as lots of game chat we all share our experiences of playing the games and being huge Star Wars fans as we grew up on different sides of the Atlantic. This epic trilogy also comes with a huge 266 page companion book which goes into even further detail about the games, stories and images from the greatest movie licence in the galaxy. You can download the book for free here. You can follow Star Wars in Character on Twitter via @swicpodcast or visit their website at http://www.neozaz.com.
