Plenty of loveable characters can be found in the Star Wars universe, especially when it comes to droids. You have the classics like R2-D2, then you have K-2SO from Rogue One, regardless of having beeps or hearing Alan Tudyk’s sweet voice, these robotic friends capture the audience. Sorry to say, but we have a new king in the galaxy, and its name is BD-1.
EA’s latest Star Wars title separates itself by being a singleplayer focused experience. The main character, a padawan named Cal, meets his droid companion early on when he visits the first planet, Bogano.
Leading up to the release of Respawn Entertainment’s go at EA’s license to put out games in the beloved franchise sparked my interest for multiple reasons, one of which was BD-1. I felt it in my heart, and now I cannot get enough of this good boi.
The little buddy heals Cal, opens doors, and brings some emotional support during these trying times. While I cannot understand the beeps and boops, Cal does, and the love he feels reflects onto me during my time playing.
It brings more motivation to fighting Stormtroopers or monstrous creatures found on various planets. It is like having a puppy that can do a lot more than run, fetch, and eat up your goddamn furniture.
Outside of helping out during the good fight, you can customize him with different color schemes that you find in the world. Who doesn’t want to make the cute droid even cuter?
Okay, I do have something cuter than changing colors of Cal’s little buddy. Seeing how happy BD-1 gets when it gets upgraded. You see a droid tippy tap its feet!
The most comparable droid in the universe comes from BB-8. That is as close as I will get to letting the other mechanical characters touch my heart like BD-1. If only I could have both.
What gives Fallen Order a step up from the new trilogy of films when it comes to loveable robot companions is that I get to interact with this one. I wish I could have my own BB-8, but I got something probably even better, buddy number one.
Just look at the little fella. Cal’s best friend (secretly mine, that redhead will never know what hit him when I get my hands on that droid) will never disappoint and should be your sole reason for buying this game.
