Research and Analysis for Report (Life after Screencast)

After completing the screencast it was important to carry on researching and analysing different sources of information for evidence to support our report. I decided to start off with the internet and searched for articles about Star Wars games and how they are linked to the Star Wars franchise and worlds.

When gathering research we as a group decided to split our research into two categories. The first category was the content of the research and how much relevance it had to our proposal. The second category was the type of research we use e.g internet sources, books, magazines etc. We felt that if we had these two categories included in our research then our research would be strong.

The following is some research I undertook for the screencast:

Internet source

Link- http://uk.ps3.ign.com/articles/910/910000p1.h

This source is a review for the game The Force Unleashed by IGN. The main points that it contributes to support me answering my proposal are “The game’s story takes place between Episodes III and IV (or the new and old trilogy for you number-phobic readers out there), though much closer in the timeline to A New Hope than Revenge of the Sith. It’s hard to talk about exactly why without spoiling anything, but I’ll just say that the tale does a very good job of tying the two trilogies together and nicely sets up the current state of everything that you see in A New Hope. Kudos to the team for crafting a story that not only extends the fiction, but in a few small ways even expands upon the existing content”

This review includes interesting views and is very understandable on the negative points it suggests about the game. However this article could only suggest that it was made by 1 persons view which was not a strong enough case.

Magazines

I then decided to research into magazines that associated with my proposal and my results are as follows:

Above is the link to the magazine “Game Axis Unwired ” although its only a small article about the game “Star Wars – The force unleashed” on page 44 it has some useful reviews towards the game and the franchise.

“For every and utterly worthless addition to the franchise, there always seems to be a counter force balancing out and restoring our geeky love for the Star Wars games”
