And please no MMO... Please no MMO... Please no MMO... Single-player or no sale.

i enjoyed the Hammill (sic) Cruz discourse that followed even more.


Roy Moore’s Defeat Means Ted Cruz Retains Status as Most Despised Person in Senate

Wow, Mark Hamill crushed it, like Jedi Master Luke going up against a couple of stormtroopers.

The real Jedi Master Luke Skywalker would. The one from Disney's EU fan film The Last Jedi wouldn't.

There is only one way left they can save this: a Dallas cop out. The very final scene of episode IX (after fading to black after whatever stupid final the Mousepire and its servants can come up with) should be Luke waking up in his bed. In the Jedi temple he built and where he is training the new padawans. And then Luke smiles and says: "What a stupid dream". Start the credits.

There, Darth Diznee. This is your final chance to save Star Wars. Do it. Redeem yourself. It would prove that there is still something good in you. Don't let Luke and the fans down now.

Things you don't want for Christmas

1. Your house falling apart.
2. Another big budget Star Wars fan film made by Sith Lord Darth Diznee.



Good luck with the Blue Tower, Mrs. and Mr. Blue. I hope everything will be fine for Christmas time.

10. Episode VIII: Killing Luke Dec 16, 2017, 19:41 El Pit
 
Somebody should invent droids that can fly ships. Or rockets instead of bombs. And force ghosts should not be allowed to go on a vacation for decades instead of supporting and counseling the new Jedi order, its master and the padawans. I mean like Anakin's force ghost could tell Ben that Snoke is a liar and knows shit about what happened on Death Star II - boom, no sequel trilogy or at least none like the one we get served. Also, Lucasfilm could hire a story group with people who understood the old movies and the characters. Then we would not see the Jedi who threw away his weapon in refusal to fight his father because he wanted to believe that there was still something good in him try to kill his sleeping (!) nephew because he thinks that there cannot be anything good left in him. D'OH! A story group sure would not greenlight a screenplay filled with such grotesque misunderstandings. Also, a story group would just cut a useless side story like Canto Bight and would not add even more characters to the already overpopulated list of main and important additional characters. Right?

Oh boy, oh boy... Yes, they tried a brave move but it became a dud. A dud that is occassionally good but often boring and when it comes to the character arcs even plainly wrong.

Nevertheless, I would like to see a trilogy made by Rian Johnson where he does not have to work with a story and characters that other people have invented. BUT... somebody should REALLY read the screenplay before going into production and just cut all useless sidestories and tell him to find different solutions to hilariously stupid ideas like capital ships without autopilot systems or droids to pilot them. Really... /facepalm

After Episode VII: Killing Han Solo we got Episode VIII: Killing Luke, and I am sure the plan was for Episode IX to be called Killing Leia. Who will they kill off now? Lando? Chewie? R2 and C3PO? ALL OF THEM? Just to give an even bigger finger to the fans of the original trilogy?

To me, the sequel trilogy is extremely expensive fan fiction from now on. It just is not canon. Just some billionaire fans who did not totally understand the story, characters, and philosophy of Star Wars trying to move on with the story. Well, this fan fiction is at least nice to look at - mostly.

When they went from single-player Wing Commander inspired game to MMO AND single-player and sold JPGs and new feature after new feature after new feature, it was obvious - the supporters would be FLAGSHIPPED!

Is Bill Roper working with CIG? Or what is he doing now?

There's a remake of this coming out this year. Sigh. Fuck you Hollywood.
Not really a remake from the looks of it... Just another movie in the series. Yes I'm aware it says remake, but who's cast as Dutch?
and who is Casey Bracket?

You're right, it is NOT a remake. There are even references to the old movies, like the son of Gary Busey playing the son of Gary Busey's Predator 2 character.

Games Workshop could literally make hundreds of millions of dollars licensing the 40k IP to successful developers, but they are so paranoid about impacting their over-priced miniature sales, that the only license it to shovelware devs.

Exactly. They should sell the license to EA and make millions selling pay2win dlc... Right?

Ah, human rights. Almost the whole wide world signed the declaration of human rights, and almost the whole wide world ignores these rights after realising that they would mean the collapse of the world as we know it (which would be a good or bad thing depending on your point of view).
