Star Wars Insider released their 135th issue which celebrated 30 years of Star Wars video games from The Empire Strikes Back to The Old Republic.

The article Game On! was written by Tony Rowe and detailed video games from The Empires Strikes Back arcade game all the way to The Old Republic MMORPG.

The issue came with two front covers: the newsstand edition had Darth Vader with Shaak Ti as seen in The Force Unleashed and Darth Malgus from The Old Republic. The comic store exclusive edition came with Vader looming over an Atari-esque 3D background.
