A new Star Wars video game launched this week, but Battlefront II isn’t on our minds right now. Instead, Rob, Danielle, and myself used the launch of Electronic Arts’ loot box simulator to look back at our individual histories with Star Wars video games. If you want to hear about Danielle’s special “flight pants” while playing Shadows of the Empire, or how Dark Forces forced me to understand how computers work, this is the podcast for you.
