This might subvert the whole SW universe but....haven't the empire and the rebel alliance EVER tried to get along? Like, ESPECIALLY after the emperor's death? The empire didn't spring out of nowhere, they were formed by other groups who MUST'VE envisioned a different future than a fourth reich.

When the Yuuzhan Vong attack, yeah. That's how Solo's daughter gets the hots for a Chiss tie pilot.

Realistically, yes, the Empire could have beaten the Alliance by pure resources and numbers.

But the movies suggested that once Vader and the Emperor were down, the Empire couldn't function properly enough.

Maybe Force Awakens will give us a different picture.

Because it makes no sense. Emperor was just one figurehead in a vast, monolithic bureaucracy. His death would mean an immediate few weeks of disarray and then the Empire would go back to everyday. After all, grand moffs and moffs ruled most of the Empire in his name.

The prequels were garbage because Lucas did pretty much everything himself. The plurality of voices and perspectives on the original trilogy were not present and were replaced by a ton of yes-men who never put the brakes on Lucas's crazier ideas.

Exactly. Surrounding yourself with yes men is the worst thing you can do. You must have several people who will say "George, NO", when you want to try something incredibly idiotic as midichlorians.

I think you can find them on GoG.

One of the best arguments against DragonLance I heard was when a friend offered to run a game in that setting (we wanted to play with 2E rules for a while), and another friend said "I don't want to be a side character in someone else's story"

And it struck me as completely correct. You can't really do anything important. It's already been done.

Ehhh, I always avoided VATS as much as possible. It's literally just an "I Win" button, and it works for every encounter of the game.

Especially in Fallout 3 when it gave you massive damage reduction. Was funny running up to dudes, just point blank right up on them, and then VATS a Frag Grenade into their face while staring them right in the eye from centimeters away.

And why is this a bad thing?

Because it makes the game too easy? And that's bad.

Sovereign Court

Face it. Lucas screwed up big time. He surrounded himself with people who were to afraid to say "George, NO". and made the mutated monster that is the prequels.

Just like Jakcson screwed up Hobbit for the same reason.

Now the franchise has changed hands. New owners have a right to do whatever they want with it.

IIRC Disney has said that all the movies are canon. so JJ can't destroy it or say it did'nt happen. he can not deal with stuff that happened in them, but he can't say it did'nt happen.

As much as I love that episodes IV through VI are canon...I'd very much like them to change a lot about episodes I throguh III. Mostly Jar Jar Binks and some other stuff. And they could focus on the clone wars more.

But I find it perfectly playsible that Empire regrouped and destroyed the rebels.

Sovereign Court

I don't mind that. It makes perfect sense. The empire is a vast, monolithic organization.

Sovereign Court

Sorry, but Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman are horrible writers. Plus their books have the feel of a gaming session. Like if someone played D&D and she was sitting there and writing it all down.

Sovereign Court

Story of Huma would be cool I guess. If they do the armor justice

Could never really get into The Forgotten Realms. I want my Dragonlance film, one that's actually good. Asking for the moon I know. But WOTC and Hasbro only care for one setting; Forgotten Realms (Eberron a close second). Just as well I guess, film makers don't know how to handle things like mortals relationship with deities, which is one of the corner stones of Dragonlance.

You can't make a good movie out of a Dragonlance novel. You can't even make a decent adventure path out of it.

Sovereign Court

I just read that they had to severely tone down the insane, murderous psychopath that was Ralph Fienes' character. Because Spielberg thought that people would find him unrealistic. The dude had his torture chamber under that villa. And he, reportedly, killed over 500 people from that camp himself.

Sovereign Court

Holywood is too restricting on making films.

First official cast photo for Star Wars Rogue One.

The cast traitors to The Empire include Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, and Riz Ahmed.

Alan Tudyk, was the "main robot" in I, Robot.*

*Why do I know these things?

Alan Tudyk was Wash from Firefly. Everything else is completely unimportant.

Honestly, turning Jimmy from an omega male/"Distressed Dude" to an "Alpha Male" is worse for me than his race. Jimmy could be Jimmy as pretty much any ethnicity, but being an "Alpha Male" makes him a completely different character.
I kinda like it. Superman is already an established hero and Olsen is a Pulitzer prize photographer, at the top of his game. In comes Kara.

He's also playing a very different role here than in a Superman story, if I'm reading the hints in the trailers correctly. Sort of a liason between Superman and Supergirl. He's been in the superhero game for awhile (on the edges, obviously) and he's helping the new kid out. As opposed to being the helpless source of trouble for Superman.

Exactly. And I like it.

This actually worries me. Everything I've heard attributed to the DC execs makes me think they have no clue what they are doing or what their fans want.

Well since batman and superman exist from before the 40s, I'm certain that most execs actually grew up on Batman and Superman comics and animated series.

Casting for the old F4 was spot on, aside from Alba. I love her, but she can't pull of Sue. And of course, I like to see that Chris Evans has range. But Ioan Gruffud was awesome as Mr. Fantastic.

Yeah, although Arkham City lost that feeling for me. I know open world is a big rage in gaming now (and for most of the past decade or so), but something that's too open detracts from the central storyline (assuming the game has one). Arkham Asylum wasn't nearly as open, and as a result the story felt a lot more focused. Whereas City and Origns are a LOT more open, but the story is nowhere near as focused.

I also feel like City and Origins throw too many side-quests at you that are mostly (or completely) unrelated to the many objective. I know it's to squeeze in more of Batman's gallery of rogues, but again, it detracts from the main storyline.

If either of them substantially improved the gameplay, I'd probably forgive that lack of focus, but all three of them essentially play the same.

Main storyline is not be-all end-all you know?

Sovereign Court

I love dwarves. And He's just so DWARF :D

Sovereign Court

Well, I'm thinking that Marvel is going to get those rights back post haste

That is why I don't read anything starting with Hunter's blades.

See Argo. And actually see Gigli. The movie is terrible, his acting is awesome.

My schedule will stabilize starting with monday, so you can expect regular posts from me.

I was hoping this would bomb. It seems it will.

Of course. Untill it became play to win and I saw a fat german kid buy the most powerful set in the game. Set me and my friends were grinding for almost a month
