Top Gun + Star Wars?
EA’s “smaller, more unusual” Star Wars: Project Maverick leaked on PSN
EA has two new Star Wars games in the works. The first is, unsurprisingly, the sequel to Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, while the second one is something called Project Maverick.
PSN releases spotted the game when it showed up on the European PlayStation Network and Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier confirmed that he had heard about the project and that it is in development at Motive Studios.
Cancellations: Reports recently revealed that EA cancelled an open-world Star Wars Battlfront spin-off codenamed Viking because of its unrealistic release schedule.
EA previously cancelled two other Star Wars projects: Ragtag by Visceral games, and Orca by Uncharted writer and director Amy Hennig.

Lost master tracks? Have a new solo!
Guitar Hero 3 features no less than 73 amazing rock classics, but did you know two of them had to be completely re-recorded from scratch?
To create a Guitar Hero stage, the developers need a master track – an original multitrack recording that hasn’t been mixed down yet. Unfortunately, no master tracks were available for Cult of Personality by Living Colour and Anarchy in the UK by Sex Pistols.
Living Colour rose to the challenge, and even added a new and much harder guitar solo for their Guitar Hero appearance. If you still have a copy of Guitar Hero 3 lying around, you can unlock and watch some videos about the re-recording process from the in-game store.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX Review Roundup
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is out on Switch tomorrow, and the first reviews of the remaster have started trickling in. The Metacritic rating is currently 67, based on 24 reviews. Here’s what some of them had to say:
USgamer (Score 80/100) – “Though still imperfect, Mystery Dungeon more than makes up for its stumblings through one of the most sweet-hearted stories in the Pokemon franchise, backed by a solid dungeoneering system and a gorgeous aesthetic.”
RPG Site (Score 80/100) – “Although it has its share of annoying faults, the entertaining story, the huge amount of content to complete, and the fun, simplistic gameplay makes it a great choice for Pokemon fans and dungeon-crawler fans alike.”
Trusted Reviews (Score 70/100) – “Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is an excellent remake which improves upon the original duo of games in myriad ways, yet still remains woefully underbaked when it comes to meaningful mechanics with enough depth to keep you going.”
Games Radar (Score 60/100) – “A gorgeous and charming game that unfortunately doesn’t improve on enough of the original gameplay aspects to keep fans engrossed.”
Metro (Score 40/100) – “A thoroughly uninteresting roguelike that undermines the most compelling elements of both the genre and the Pokémon universe.”
