LEGO Star Wars The Video Game [HOT]
The 2022 hit LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga may feature updated versions of all nine films, but there's a certain charm to revisiting the game that started it all, the prequel-celebrating LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game.
LEGO Star Wars The Video Game
LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game is the LEGO game that started it all. It received a sequel (LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy), and a compilation was made (LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga). Continued popularity led to another sequel (LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars).
Several sound effects related to Lego bricks are double the sample rate in the PC demo and the PS2 prototype compared to the final game (22KHz vs 11KHz). These are found in lego_data\Audio\_SoundFX\LEGO in the demo and lego_data\Audio\_SoundFX\sfx.dat\audio\_soundfx\lego in the final game.The sound effect that plays when the door at the beginning of the first level was also renamed from LegoDoorExpl to nega_doorexpl in the final game.
Found in the lego_data/chars folder are unused character folders for a few characters that ended up getting moved to The Complete Saga. Although some folders are there so the game can render cutscenes (babyskywalker), some folders and characters end up not being used at all. While their data is there, the triggers for them to be playable are removed. However, one can access these by renaming them to a character with a similar skeleton or weapon.
There are some cutscenes hidden in the lego_data/cut folder (where cutscene data is stored) from earlier points in development that are not used in the game. Most notably these go with the cut Zam Wessel level, Bounty Hunter Pursuit (ep2_bountyhunterpursuit_intro, and ep2_bountyhunterpursuit_outro) that was moved to The Complete Saga. But there are also references to 3 other cut levels. 'ep1_anakinsflight_intro1', 'ep1_anakinsflight_outro1', and 'ep1_anakinsflight_outro2' refer to a cut level for Episode I where Anakin would destroy the Droid control ship. 'ep2_jango_intro', it is not know what this would have been. 'ep3_bogachase_intro' and 'ep3_bogachase_outro' which refer to the cut level Boga Chase where Obi Wan would chase General Grievous through Utapau. The video below showcases all the unused cutscenes in the PC version in full as well as how they're intended to look.
LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game is a video game based on the Star Wars-themed toy line by the LEGO Group. It place during the prequel trilogy (The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith), with a bonus segment from A New Hope.
While most Star Wars LEGO sets tend to be based on upcoming or previously released movies and TV shows, there have been a few one-off sets over the years that come from just outside the main Star Wars canon. Often branded as "Legends" sets, these models come from a variety of external Star Wars media, with quite a few of them hailing from some beloved Star Wars video games.
Though Star Wars: The Force Unleashed only received one LEGO set, it's still one of the most unique-looking Star Wars sets to date and marks the first Star Wars LEGO set based on a video game. Set number 7672, the Rogue Shadow goes out of its way to capture the sleek look of the game's primary ship.
Five years after the Rogue Shadow set, LEGO released its next set based on a Star Wars video game, and this time, the company released an entire wave of products. Over the course of two years, 2012 and 2013, LEGO released a total of four sets based on the MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.
The most recent LEGO sets based on Star Wars video game properties have all revolved around the Star Wars: Battlefront series. Four Battlefront sets have been released over the last few years, with each one sharing a common theme of being a Battle Pack, the smaller LEGO sets that tend to include a small vehicle/turret build and four minifigures.
The most recent LEGO set based on a Star Wars video game came out in 2019. Based on Battlefront 2's main cast of elite stormtroopers, the Inferno Squad Battle Pack included a tiny speeder-like ship and four minifigures. Iden Versio was the real draw of this set, with a unique face print and body print that was exclusive to this set. The other three figures all shared the same Inferno Squad Agent body and helmet prints, though they each had different face prints.
Though it hasn't been officially confirmed yet, a Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order BD-1 set is rumored to be in the works. With Respawn's latest announcement that a whole load more Star Wars games are on the way, it seems likely that fans will see more Star Wars video game LEGO sets in the future.
From his earliest gaming memories playing Spyro 2 on the PlayStation, to being obsessed with the swing-out animations in Marvel's Spider-Man, Cameron has always been, and continues to be, in love with video games. What started as frenzied childhood discussions on Star Wars Battlefront 2 has transitioned into somewhat less frenzied breakdowns on...Star Wars Battlefront 2. It's fair to say that video games are an integral part of Cameron's life, and hopefully they'll continue to be. 041b061a72
