So it's going to be like the X-Box 360 with backwards compatibility.  A few games at first as a test (glad to see Mass Effect in there) and they will add games over time.  Eventually, pretty much every game will be playable.

No, it'll be a lot better than it was on the 360. On the 360 it was done on a game-by-game basis and was a giant pain in the ass for everyone involved (MS/developers/publishers), resulting in glitchy games and a spotty library.

This time, MS has just emulated the entire 360 OS on the One, so the bulk of the work is already done. All they'll really need now from publishers is approval, so most games will be able to carry over no problem. The only ones that definitely won't carry over are games that require Kinect or other hardware, like Rock Band.

Speaking of Mass Effect, it actually runs better on the One than it did on the 360.

‘Star Wars: Rogue One': Forest Whitaker Joins Standalone Film

Awesome.

Exclusive: Star Wars: Rogue One details on theme, locations, aliens, & more

Quote
• Stormtroopers have same armor as they do in the original films (i.e. episodes IV - VI)

• Lots of alien life forms, Mon Calamari among them

• New droids and aliens will be introduced. Kind of a no-brainer, but just so you know it's not just a bunch of rebels

• At-Ats, X-Wings, Y-wings, At-Sts are said to be present.

• Implied that some of the film will take place on Yavin-4; a lot of armies in the jungle and various battlefield locations

• Looks like a new droid will be part of the band of rebels attempting to steal the Death Star plans

• Felicity Jones is seen dressed as a rebel soldier ready for battle; expect her to get her hands dirty in this one

Still not sure how I feel about the idea of standalone films but this one sounds pretty good so far. Looking forward to seeing what a Star Wars movie without all the Jedi/Sith stuff is like.

Anyone still playing this? I just got it the other day and holy jeez I'm so behind the eight ball in missing out on all the rare inserts and whatnot. Cool game though, and it's nice to have a new casual Star Wars game to play on the phone again after Tiny Death Star took a dump.

Given the December release of the film, I think we're probably looking at a TFA line reveal either at SDCC or a later special event.  And based on past history, I think we could be looking at an October release.  And that's still 5 months away.  All in all, we seem to be in thoroughly uncharted territory.

This has probably been mentioned here somewhere already, but there are some books with tie-ins to The Force Awakens set for release on Friday, September 4. Maybe that's the day the toys will launch as well? If so, an official unveiling at SDCC seems like a pretty safe bet, but I'm guessing we'll see more leaked images out of the Far East before then, anyway.

Will John Hollis be CGI or do you think they recast the role? 

CGI head on a body double, Paul Walker-style.

The team at DICE is zeroing in on the final details for our appearance at Star Wars™ Celebration and we’re ready to make good on our promise to reveal more details around Star Wars™ Battlefront™.

It has been hard to keep these secrets from the community, but we’re excited to announce that we will be hosting a panel at Celebration on April 17th, kicking off at 10:30AM PT, where we will debut the official reveal trailer for Star Wars Battlefront. Make sure to get to the show early to secure your seat.

AVClub.com: The Simpsons will no longer be released on DVD

Quote
...Simpsons showrunner Al Jean has revealed that Fox will no longer be releasing its seasons on DVD—and presumably, any other physical media. It’s the end of an era, and given the durability of the series, probably the right decision to save Mother Earth.

Jean let the news slip on Twitter, in a series of conversations with fans who wanted to know when Fox—after skipping from season 17 to 20—would be putting out seasons 18 and 19, or any of the other seasons the show has had since then and possibly since the beginning of this sentence. The answer is never, thanks to what Jean blames on a dying market for DVDs—even among diehard Simpsons fans who almost singlehandedly have been keeping it alive through their demand for commentaries, deleted scenes, and the like.

Man oh man am I glad I stopped buying the DVDs early on. Not having Seasons 18 or 19 would drive my OCD through the ******* roof.

This kinda sucks, though. Those first few DVD releases were a huge deal at the time.

Okay, so how do you tell if you're getting the fixed version? Are all the Wave 6 repacks on the TIE Pilot cards good to go, or is it a date stamp thing?
