Out of the Blue

Still processing the news of the closure of the UGO, GameSpy, and 1UP websites. As I commented to loonyboi about this, all those properties ending up in the same hands seemed to make some change in this regard inevitable, so it's not like this was completely unexpected, but having all three sites go in the same firing squad is still a little shocking. Best of luck to all of those looking for work as a result of this.

I thought he died protecting one of Solo's kids? But I never read the book, for that very reason.

The way it happens was stupid too. The drow Yuuzhan Vong, who control creatures that can manipulate mass fields that are hundreds of thousand of LIGHTYEARS away, send a moon plummeting to this planet to destroy it. Okay.

So right before it hits, Chewie basically shoves Anakin (IIRC) into a hovering Millenium Falcon, and then the moon hits. So to note, Chewie has the time to shove the kid onboard the MF, but doesn't have time to save himself, as the moon basically falls on top of him right then and there.

The Millenium Falcon, however, survives this entire ordeal without a scratch, even though it was within about TEN FEET of Chewbacca when a fucking MOON falls on top of him.

RA Salvatore is the worst fucking science fiction writer ever.

Wow... so that's how chewbacca died? Oh... my.. god...
