Darn! I'm so far behind in the novels and Comics too!

I'm drooling to read them all, time to get a library card!  oh and finished the 4 books I'm reading at the same time...gosh that's an annoying thing to do!

no need, just give it to me.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Battlefront 3 What would you like to see??
« on: September 27, 2006, 12:43 AM »

Lastly...  The engine for the game is fairly sound, and while it's easily an MP focused game I think it has more potential for a SP game.  I think they need to make a SP focused Battlefront where the MP comes second because it's quite simply "easy" to add MP to games, but making a good SP game with cohesive storyline isn't so much so.

Ok what's SP and MP in that quote? lol

I loved the first Lego game,  play it all the time with my nephew.  I hope this game improved the default keys for two players; you can't fit two people on a keyboard like that!  I hate having to reset them all.

My sister bought this game for my nephew's birthday, I have to wait till the end of October to play it now! lol

I'm very leery about MMORPGs.  The whole concept is somewhat disturbing.

The Wookiee Arcade / Anyone Play Jedi Power Battles?
« on: September 26, 2006, 11:25 PM »
That's one of my all time favorite SW games.

I still have my PS1 memory card with the game my friend and I were doing.  We beat the game twice and were working on opening all the extra levels.

Darn I've got to hook up the PS1 again!  Good times

I just can't get Kubricks.  Hyped up Legos... =p

Welcome aboard.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Wow, NEW Star Wars FPS: Republic Commando
« on: September 26, 2006, 11:09 PM »
How is the control on Commando?  I really liked how Rainbow 6 was done. You could switch to any of your four men and place them where you wanted and leave them with certain orders.

Star Wars Universe / Re: luke skywalkers death?
« on: September 26, 2006, 06:23 PM »
Yeah, you could always count on Luke getting his face kicked in, then just before he dies, he gets out and lives.  No threat to the lives of the main characters was a problem with EU.

But with Chewie, it was just throw in your face.  "Oh you don't think we'll kill anyone? Huh? Well BAM there Chewie's dead!  What do you have to say for yourself now!?"

I wasn't aware Legacy took place after Luke's death!  Luke's body must be an absolute wreak by the end of NJO anyway.  What's the 28 years after Jedi?  Luke's like 55; and been utterly near dead about 150 times.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Why Didn't the Empire use the Sep Droids
« on: September 26, 2006, 06:19 PM »
Come the time of the Galactic Civil War though, I agree with Brad completely that a main reason to not use BD's is simply the fact you outnumber your enemy in numbers and (in theory) superior weapons (be they trained men, blasters, armor, air(space)craft, etc.).  The Empire was the dominant force in every way...  supposedly.

That's one of my biggest beefs with EU.  The indominable Empire cracks so easily.  They go from galactic dominance to inept fools that can barely hold the Core sectors in like 2 years.

Star Wars Universe / Re: When did the Empire change their eqiupment?
« on: September 26, 2006, 06:07 PM »
The New Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology does say that Clone Armor is superior to Storm Armor, but that the Stormies have better gear.

So cheaper on saving the trooper's life, but more on controling and communicating with them.  That does mesh with the Empire's view on things.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Why do so many hate the Expanded Universe?
« on: September 26, 2006, 05:55 PM »
Wow Jesse James your posts are so close to how I feel about EU.  I'm not sure what to add to it. heh

I've always loved how they make the effort to make the whole EU one story, of one history.  But like Darkhorse has infinities (what ifs), I wish they'd do the same with some of the earlier EU.  It doesn't all have to fit together; and I'm one that loves order!  The Prophets of the Dark side, couldn't we have just left that out?

That said, I still want to get an official timeline list of all things Star Wars.  Comics and books and video games and the RPG stuff all meshed into one history. It is like I love the continuity and hate it at the same time.

I think the Vong series hurt EU.  It was borglike, and it dismantled what Jedi were.  Made them too simple to kill.  The whole idea of "if I can't feel you in the force, I can't fight you."

EU also relies too heavily on the movies characters.  I loved X-Wing for the move away from "beat up Luke" book of the month.  I don't mind NOT seeing jedi in a story.

Star Wars Universe / Re: 20 more years?
« on: September 26, 2006, 05:45 PM »
Last I saw Lucas has been saying that we only said he COULD stretch the story into 9 movies, but that 6 is what he was aiming for.

Don't worry, eventually repacking the movies will stop funding all Lucas does.  Then either he makes more (I kinda hope he doesn't though) or he'll sell rights to make them.  (Thrawn Trilogy!)
