Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

It is ignoring or rewriting of established canon that is one of the (out of a very, VERY great many) reasons why I detest TLJ so much. It rewrote the rules on hyperspace tracking, travel and weaponry in such a ridiculous, needless and stupid way, which was utterly at odds with everything we already...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

To me it's weird that there have been a lot of negative reviews of this episode, especially after last weeks effort which was full of ham fisted writing. Lots of youtubers don't seem to know what a character arc is, or they think a couple of lines of 6th form dialogue are more important that actuall...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Episode 5 was great! Mando on a Dewback, so good. They even copied that famous shot of a Stormtrooper on Dewback that wasn't in the film. Amazing. A proper bounty hunting episode as well. So many callbacks to the OT that it felt a bit like a fan film, but who cares, it was great to be back on Tatooi...

Re: I have a confession

Considering Lucas wasted the first two movies not actually showing how Anakin becomes Vader this was supposed to be the one. It's laughably bad. Good god, I think it might be the worst of the PT. The damn acting, the nonsense script, what the hell happened. Tried watching a fan edit of all the prequ...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

I also agree. Poorest episode so far, and it was no surprise to see it was directed by Bryce Dallas Howard. Heavy handed and too cutesy, and as much as I'm a fan of baby Yoda it was beginning to grate this episode. A retelling of the Seven Samurai is fair enough, but condensing it down to just over ...

Re: star wars arcade 1up

I emailed Smyths toys and they "currently have no information" on it. I guess it will come over eventually.
I'd love to get one, I think the 3 games are just about enough. I think the laserdisc Firefox game had a similar yoke so maybe they can be modded somehow.

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Fantastic second episode, even better than the first because I love those little Jawas. In fact the only thing wrong was the colour of their eyes. Why red and not yellow? Anyhow, finding his ship had been scavenged by Jawas was exactly right. Of course it's going to be scavenged by Jawas, it's what ...

Can anybody PM me a link to the first and second episodes please, not very clued up on how to find these sites :D

I would really appreciate this also.

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Thought it was great. Low key opening (though I did think that blue alien at the start was straight out if Seinfeld) in fact I think that was the only bad thing about the episode. I really hope we get more IG-11 as I always wanted to see how one of those things moved around. Shadows of the Empire wa...

Re: Battlefront 2

I recently got back into BF2, haven't played it much since launch really. I was one of the few who actually liked the campaign. Not the story particularly, but the gameplay was solid. The new co-op mode is what brought me back. It's a great way to level up your class and you can always get to play a...

Re: The Mandalorian Trailer 2

I'm way more into this than the new film, and typical, we can't watch it here. There are going to be spoilers everywhere so somehow I'm going to have to figure out a way to watch it as close to air date as possible.

The new trailer just improves on what we've already seen, looks amazing.

Re: How Do You Rank The SW Movies Now?

Star Wars Empire Jedi The Holiday Special (100% serious on this - original cast, costumes and masks, cartoon etc) The Force Awakens (the first half is ok, gets crap once Han shows up) Rogue One (there's a good film in there but it's messy) The Last Jedi (Fallen Knight fan edit - cuts out Canto seque...

Btw, Jedi Outcast is out this week on Switch and PS4. I don't think they've updated anything except the controls.

Re: Which retro consoles do you still have?

I don't really have any old consoles anymore, I mostly use emulation to play colecovision games. That was my favourite console growing up as it was the only one at the time to have halfway decent arcade ports. I have an original Xbox softmodded with a 200gb hard drive and coinops, so that takes care...
