Disney Interactive has released a new infographic detailing the statistics of the Galactic Civil War in Star Wars: Commander.

The Empire has pulled ahead with more than 57% of the player base. Russia, Austria, Germany, Finland and the Ukraine have all joined the Empire (either willingly or unwillingly), but there is some hope. The Rebel Alliance has India, most of South America, and Africa fighting against the empire.

Strangely, North Dakota seems to be the only bastion of Rebel forces amidst the rest of the United States, which has gone full on Dark Side.

You can check out more info on the Disney Interactive blog, and you can download Star Wars: Commander off the App Store for free.

Peggle Blast is Coming to iOS Soon

Posted by on September 11th, 2014

EA has announced that a new Peggle will be making its way onto iOS soon, in the form of Peggle Blast. The game features a more cartoony art style than Peggle Classic, but will still feature all of the skill shots and peg destroying players expect from the series.

This announcement will not be much of a shock to some however, with Peggle Blast likely being the final version of the game currently out in New Zealand – known only as Peggle.

A release date and official pricing are yet to be announced for Peggle Blast, but if the app does indeed follow the same pattern as the similar version currently available in New Zealand it will be free to download.
