    My current beef with Fallen Order is how much of a pain in the ass it is to get back to the Swamp of Sacrifice to 100% it.

    Well whys that then

    Corellians in military service

    Wasn't he in pilot academy or something and got kicked out?

    for assaulting an officer trying to beat chewbacca, yeah. the trilogy from the 90's goes into a lot more detail in an effort to tie all of the EU canon together that had been put out, even the Adventures trilogy from the 80's

    maybe my bad memory but doesn't rebels hit a point towards the end where they aren't killing people anymore? like, whole lot of knockouts going on.

    but also this cartoon talk reminded me, isn't resistance a thing?
    edit: oh hey apparently s2 started in october

    Yeah, the mandalore arc was very soft on the opposition. There's a chase sequence with a lot of people falling of and rolling around instead of getting shot like before in the show. It felt a bit jarring at the time.

    Seems this thread doesn't let you leave without posting. Might as well post my appreciation for the mandalorian. Great show!

    Yeah, the alpha was not a problem for me, fuck that albino spider though.

    I really had very few deaths in the game on normal, though. Basically I died about ten times to oingo boingo, then didn’t die again until
    the ninth sister. Dodging charges in the game is one of the things that feels very finnicky and her double charge got me.

    After that, I had so many stims that I never died again.

    Nydaks pissed me off so much at first.

    Taking the time to figure out their counter pattern just so I could completely no-sell them on every encounter was absolutely worth it. They go down real quick.

    I'm amazed that Mandalorian ep 4 managed to
    make the profoundly, catastrophically doofy AT-ST into a genuinely ominous threat

    If you haven’t yet you should at least skim the Vader sequences and the Darth Maul death scene. It’s good shit.

    Has anyone remarked on this little easter egg from Mandalorian ep 3/ Empire Strikes Back?
    w4fsozg7die7.jpeg

    Because I just watched ep 3 with the wife and had to explain why I laughed out loud, and now she thinks I'm a bigger nerd than she thought before. Which I didn't really think was possible.

    Something I would like from a Fallen Order sequel
    make Nightsister Merrin playable
    Either as the only choice or a Dishonored 2 style choice up front, and keep the saber stuff for Cal and weird Nightsister magic for Merrin

    She has kinda his same backstory but way more presence and charm, it's a shame she is in relatively little of this game

    One thing I will say against Rebels is that I HATE the design of lightsabers. They are SO thin.

    Based on the two times I've seen one lit up so far, five episodes in, I actually really love it

    They look like very thin rods of light that are surrounded by coronas, recalling how they looked from certain angles in Episode 4, which is still my favorite aesthetic wrt these laser swords

    That little smirk and look over her shoulder when she teased Greez about sacrificing his arm had more character and charisma in it than Cal’s entire story arc.

    She’s so good

    I’m watching Resistance now and it still feels very much in its like...youth show era but it’s still fun. All these shows have felt sort of like this to me at the start and they all sort themselves out.

    Plus I’m like absorbing whatever Star Wars content I can right now I even started playing the old republic again lol

    Which reminds me

    I’ve got an audible credit, anyone with book recos? Was thinking maybe Thrawn but I know they just put out the TRoS prequel book or whatever

    I also started rebels having only seen the parts I mentioned before and I’m split. There are definitely aspects of this show that are kinda kidified. That the Mandalorian girl is decked out in pink armor and so little of it that she has curves is such a lame cop out of a move. The way the show handles Jedi and the Rebels in general though? Top notch.

    How does this kessel rebellion work with the one is Solo? Is that place raided by rebels every few weeks?

    I think she only has basic armor because shes young? The Mandalorian implies they earn their armor as they complete tasks

    I really enjoyed both Thrawn and Resistance Reborn so you can't go wrong with either. Thrawn is a really interesting look inside the dude's head while still keeping him very weird and alien, while RR is more of a classic adventure, and also has Wedge Antilles

    I’m early but she doesn’t seem to be playing by those rules at all. Either way that’s pretty clearly a cultural idea invented for Mandalorian and doesn’t justify her design at all. We all know why she is pink and wears just enough armor to show off her figure.

    Her hair? Because her armor has paint but it iant pink
