So, are these guys supposed to be IG-88?
His predecessors. The IG-86 model is a top-of-the-line enforcer droid, capable of posing a challenge even to Jedi. IG-88 was supposed to succeed it as an even smarter, tougher assassin droid. But, well, skynet happened.
I hope they don't do that in nucanon. It's much easier to just say IG-88 was in-production in the clone wars and then Holowan got liquidated by the Empire since they had been building Magnaguards and lancers for the separatists. IG-88 just happened to make it out of the company meltdown and became a bounty hunter.
I mean, still keep him a heartless killing machine that butchers meatbags for sport, but don't give him control of the death star or his own matrix planet.
Better watch what you say about Matt.
Reminder that the space Iguana is the GOAT character in all of star wars canon
They kept it secret until AotC, but Dooku never really downplayed his darkside powers, so news of Sith and Dark Jedi quickly spread throughout the galaxy, especially when Ventress, Maul, and Savage became more publicly visible entities.
like the galaxy at large wont really react to "hey there are these two really bad guys out there!" and for the most part people don't distinguish other force uses from jedi
like you have to remember Sith were a threat to the republic was millennia ago. anyone who remembers them dosen't consider them a possibility.
MOST Jedi didnt think the sith were a thing til facing one them selves
I thought Dooku did keep his identity as a Sith a secret though?
I mean, he was a Jedi so people didn't bat an eye when he used the force, but only went full Sith when did shady things under Tyranus.
>I thought Dooku did keep his identity as a Sith a secret though?
More or less. The Jedi knew he was a Sith, though for the longest time they didn't know his Sith name. Apparently they also weren't really clear on where he stood within the Sith heirarchy: if he was working for Darth Sidious, if Darth Sidious even really existed, if Dooku was actually the Sith master and thus the master of Maul, or if Sidious and Dooku were both Sith Lords but not working together. When you throw Maul back into the mix, that just confused them even more.
Yeah, they got his name and other data from Gunray's throne when he was captured back in TPM, but not enough to match chins and voices with the Chancellor. It's the reason why Yoda does that whole "or should I call you Darth Sidious?" line in their duel. Finally found the bastard.
Dooku told Obi-Wan that Darth Sidious existed, but the Jedi Council wasn't sure if that was true, a misdirection, or a blatant lie. The only one who had any inkling that Sidious was real was Yoda after his spirit quest, though it wasn't confirmed until Mace and his posse peeved the Sheev.
Sadly, it's looking like the later. She's perfect at everything and is one of the more level-headed and mature members of the crew, so there's nowhere she can develop to as a character, no easy way for her to grow. Maybe visiting Mandalore will change that, but they built her up too much on concept.
Not only is that EU, but they didn't get that information from Nute's chair until days before ROTS happened. The very first time they ever heard about Darth Sidious was from Dooku.
They forgot she needed flaws for there to be any real character development, and unlike Hera, who is fairly flawless herself, Sabine doesn't actually have a strong place in the plot either. You really could remove Sabine completely and the show wouldn't really change.
Why were the Episode 3 figures so much better than the EP 7 toys?
I remember i had a bunch of the ep3 figures (obi wan, windu, siduous, vader) as a little kid but they are lost in storage. The grievious figure was based in particular.
it seems al the toys have regressed
>my fucking face when finding out Adam Driver was in the marines
Here really is shredded
>it seems al the toys have regressed
Hasbro's started clearly separating toys meant for kids and toys meant for collectors. They realized kids will still buy the figures even if they're cheaply painted and have very little articulation, so that's why the main figures have regressed. Meanwhile, Hasbro also realized collectors will pay extra for a line aimed at them, so the Black Series has a 4" figure line (in addition to the main 6" figures) that are articulated just like they used to be... for twice the price of the regular cheap ones.
You can't bring that up and not post this
does anyone else want Leia to do some cool force shit in EP 8 or 9?
Like, maybe an assassination attempt that she thwarts with a force push when all seems lost?
that would be fucking cool. I also predict she's gonna be the only one of the main 3 to survive the new trilogy.
>if Dooku was actually the Sith master and thus the master of Maul
There's a great scene in Son of Dathomir where Mace Windu is talking to Chancellor Sheev, and he's all like "OMG, I've finally solved the mystery! Dooku is the Sith Lord! He trained Darth Maul! I know this on account of the fact that I saw them fighting together this one time!"
And ol' Sheev's reaction is basically, "Dooku and Maul working together? You don't say."
I want her to use force powers, yes. Nothing overly fancy. I don't want her hopping around like Sheev or something. Just some minor mind tricks, force pushes, that sort of thing. Just enough to know she can use the force but never really bothered to develop it much.
From that to this.
He obviously didn't get the twink genes like his uncle did.
>"Supreme Leader, I need your help, those guys are being mean and I want them to stop it!"
>"Maybe there's a reason they keep calling you a punk bitch, Kylo, you ever think about that? What, are you going to cry about it? Gonna go tell daddy on them? OH WAIT! Burned, punk bitch."
She's got no training with the Force. She understands and recognizes the sensations and feelings like when Han dies, but that's it, she can't use it to do anything because she chose not to learn it. Also, she'll probably die in the next one.
Must've been from that tour he took on Nar Shaddaa.
I'm going to be so pissed when Luke dies. Old canon Luke was a fucking unstoppable force god. This Luke will probably die to Kylo Ren who will then get killed by Rey, who somehow is now stronger than Luke ever was, or something stupid like that.
Who /hux/ here?
>Called Kylo a punk bitch.
J.J. Abrams already gave a pretty definitive answer on this. Leia refused to undergo training because she didn't really want anything to do with it and instead focused on politics and the military. Sure, maybe she could manage some minor telekinetic shit or a Force push if she really tried, but she won't.
I'd prefer Luke make it out alive through the trilogy, but doesn't remain to overshadow the new cast like he did in the EU. Especially because it would fuck over the Obi-Wan stereotype hard.
Have Luke help defeat the First Order, then just sort of leave Rey the keys to the plot and just fuck off to be a hermit elsewhere.
I can honestly see her either being killed by Snoke, which would possibly cause Kylo Ren to lose it and destroy his master, or maybe she'll kamikaze a capital ship into a First Order flagship or base as a final fuck you in a losing battle.
>Leia refused to become the one of the strongest psychokinetic warrior she was destined to be in case of failure.
Her loss. Hopefully Luke taught her a few things that she finds useful.
oh, thats pretty cool too though. maybe she used her force sensitivity to be a more aware general. i just like to think that leia user her innate abilities to be a very competent general.
but then if she does all these thing without truly using the force she seems more impressive. i dunno.
It would be really hard to get Luke involved directly in the plot without him ending up dead. At this point, he has decades of time learning the force, and he was canonically super powerful just at the end of Episode 6.
If he trains Rey but refuses to participate any further, it will feel like a cop out, and also be kind of annoying since finding Luke seemed like such a big fucking deal to EVERYONE in the movie. I mean, whats the point of him getting found if hes adamant about just staying out of things?
But if he gets involved, balancing his contributions without overshadowing the rest of the cast is going to be a monumental task I doubt anyone at Disney is capable of handling.
Unless he's not at all as OP as everyone expects him to be. I really want Luke to be a fun hippie full of wisdom. Everyone's so hype that he's going to explode mountains with his mind and shit, but I'd love it if he's not really much more powerful than he was in RotJ.
Plus, he already fucked off like obiwan. Can't get much worse than a bunch of Sith fanboys butchering innocent people just to find a map to your hideout.
>But if he gets involved, balancing his contributions without overshadowing the rest of the cast is going to be a monumental task I doubt anyone at Disney is capable of handling.
see thats why i think he has to be overwhelmed by numbers/outgunned. if he takes on multiple powerful darkside users at the same time he can look powerful whilst still fight a losing battle.
It wouldn't be too hard to have him have one scene directly involving him with the plot (maybe something with Snoke to actually get some backstory for that fucker?) but yeah, it'd be great to just see him be a hippie teaching Rey the ways of a space hermit.
Oh, and the Force too I guess.
How does that work out though? Do we get an entire stable of Rens next movie that just overwhelm him? If so, who deals with THEM? Are they going to get split up and have each main character deal with one on their own? I mean, it would be kind of weird.
My dream ending is for Luke to be at the head of a restored Jedi Order as grand master with Rey and whatever other force sensitives as its founding members.
I don't want him to get offed heroically, I want him to build that bright new age we were promised in Episode VI.
And that's fine. I just don't want him to show up and start colliding Star Destroyers into each other while Snoke cries digital tears of anguish.
Or play him as a trickster. Have him fuck with the FO without even visibly using the force.
idk, i think a fully realized kylo plus snoke can do the job while still not belittlinh his GOAT jedi status.
i'd rather the rest of the knights of ren take on finn and poe somehow.
>tfw i just realized he was in harry potter
>Luke and Rey confront Snoke and the Knights of Ren
>Over the course of the fight, Rey betrays Luke by embracing the dark side so he's completely outnumbered
>Kylo Ren saves him at the last second by killing his remaining fellow Knights
>Together they obliterate Snoke with the full power of the Force and Rey, beaten and alone, is captured with the hope of eventual redemption
>Ben and Luke rebuild the Jedi Order with Finn as one of the new students
I can already see the exchange between Rey and Luke where she wants revenge and he tells her about how revenge isn't the Jedi way.
Luke forgave his dad for killing Obi-wan, it's going to be
Han died to cement Ren as fully going Dark Side. Its literally his entire story arc in the movie. If he gets redeemed its basically going to be a giant middle finger to the entire thing.
Same. It's too fucking cliche, even for Star Wars. Kylo needs to die a monster. But I'd certainly love to see him kill Snoke and takeover the First Order. Would also be a nice change from the Vaderbitch/masterSheev dynamic of the past 6 movies.
>If he gets redeemed its basically going to be a giant middle finger to the entire thing.
Considering the movies general plot was a giant middle finger to the originals Disney will probably do it
Its his own personal character arc.
Spends the entire movie fretting about how hes terrified hes not capable of going full darkside, then he kills Han to finally make the jump.
Thats literally the point of everything "Character development" related about his character.
Welp, you would have a coronary if you read the novelization then, because it confirms the opposite. He kills Han thinking if will finally make him fully dark side and instead of anger and strength, be feels immense sadness, regret, and weaker. He will be redeemed and you can fully expect him struggling with it in the next film.
Yes, that is the arc but there is no indication that killing Han accomplished what Ren thought he would.
Instead of cutting himself off from his old self it is entirely likely the anguish he was feeling has worsened with guilt.
There wasn't a single scene in the film or book of him whining. Try again. Also, they did show that side of him, not the film's fault you couldn't catch on. He ignored what Finn did at the village despite knowing he didn't shoot because he felt his struggle and confusion and it reminded of himself. He also didn't kill that officer who told him about BB-8 escaping Jakku. He was also 100% genuine in his scene with Han, he didn't even want to do it but he thought he had no other choice.
The ending would be better if a cloned Anakin was there beside Luke, with a Force ghost Anakin beside them. Say the Empire cloned him and Luke rescued him years ago.
He could be like Char in Zeta Gundam,
Maybe he trains Rey, then goes off on his own. Then in the climatic battle at the end of episode IX, suddenly bam a bunch of Jedi that Luke was training offscreen show up to throw down with the Knights of Ren.
>Padme constantly whining on about muh democracy
>Is a monarch
Is the ironing just completely lost on her?
Let's leave the book aside for the moment
>He ignored what Finn did at the village
Because other officers can deal out discipline and he had more important things to do
>He also didn't kill that officer who told him about BB-8 escaping Jakku
Which would only be expected of any half-decent officer, but he still choked him in the first place
>He was also 100% genuine in his scene with Han
Why does Obi-wan hate peace, freedom, justice, and security?
Questioning the affairs of the Naboo government is an unwise decision.
Does he have the best fashion sense in the galaxy?
In the old EU, Leia at least met one of them. Padme's sister and her daughters are still canon, they showed up at the end or RotS after all, and are named in the credits, but since deleted scenes aren't canon, the parts where they all meet Anakin don't count.
There's something I'm unsure of.
During the Clone Wars when Palpatine was living a double life as High Chancellor and secretive Sith Lord mastermind, was there anybody who allied with him on the dark side who knew that he was playing the role of the kind humble chancellor of the Republic? I have to imagine he kept that a secret from them, so such info couldn't be used against him and I don't think the Separatists would've appreciated a Sith helping the Republic (even when Palpatine made subtle moves in an attempt to sabotage Jedi missions)
No, everybody knew except the republic. Palpatine's plan only worked because the entire galaxy was fucking retarded.
It's one big reason why I dislike the political/Palpatine moments of the clone wars so much.
So can we bury this "CGI don't age well lel, Practical effects do" bullshit? The effects in the OT don't hold up because they were practical, it's because they had been doing practical effects for decades at that point and were released a few years before the film industry began experimenting with cgi.
Return of the Jedi only has practical effects that sort hold up because practical effects started to get phased out just a decade later.
Apparently it's part of the "child ruler" tradition that used to be practiced on Earth. And in some cases still is when reincarnation is believed to be in play.
I don't want to say a child is considered purer, since that has creepy connotations especially here, but ... less cluttered? Able to see the world without all the bullcrap you have acquired by the time you are an adult. It's the whole "a child shall lead them" bit. I think some of the ancient Britons practiced it, ah it's been too long since the topic has come up.
At any rate Padme wasn't standard as we've seen the other queens are older. She was just really acceptable in debate class after her all night cramming sessions with Clovis
no, not really, that came later. Probably her future handmaidens and body double for causing maximum premature firepower in Anakin's pants when Padme was telling him.
They used less CGI than most people think. A lot less, actually. But it was using modern cimemotography and digital effects (though what was cutting edge at the turn of the century doesn't hold up as well today).
For instance, compare the digital effects and CGI replacements in TFA compared to the Prequels. It's all still ILM, the effects company Lucas founded to do his on-screen wizardry. The current use is far more sophisticated and refined than it was in 1999-2005, and even then you can track how their effects improved with each movie.
There are plenty of practical effects that look phenomenal, and plenty that look like shit.
There are plenty of CGI effects that look phenomenal, and plenty that look like shit.
Anybody who strongly disagrees with this is kidding themselves, and if you let either matte paintings or CGI backdrops ruin your immersion, you should probably just find a new hobby. Star Wars is a fantasy series, just let yourself believe whatever it is you're seeing like a child would. Puppets are no less convincing than CGI aliens IMO. At least when both are done well. Which in Star Wars, they almost always are, because Star Wars always pushed top of the industry special effects.
Congratulations you insane bastard. You did what I could not.
It's a wonderful cameo, and literally the sole reason they exist in Canon, and it's all thanks to Filoni being a fanboy.
They don't show up again, but a different Republic Commando does, so don't worry.
Holy shit nice.
>The effects in the OT hold up
Nice meme. Try to watch OT in a good resolution someday, anon. Poor effects in many scenes with not-real-landscapes (i.e. Bespin shaft, some Death Star interiors) or starship/vehicle models (i.e. Hoth assault sequence) are quite fucking glaring. So is the fact that, say, Chewbacca's face is a rubber mask with a very limited range of motions.
If you apply the same standards to both trilogies, OT would probably end up having more more moments where you spot realism failure without having a commentary that explains to you where SFX are.
Are you honestly suggesting the rubber masks, matte paintings, obvious puppetry and fake backdrops looks "better" than modern CGI?
I understand you're holding on to nostalgia but dont kid yourself into thinking the OT holds up. It's extremely outdated 70's/80's technology. The entire Courscant chase in AOTC looks more realistic than any scene from the OT. Ask any person over 50 about modern technology. They'll mostly agree CGI looks better than what they grew up on.
Modern technology is capable of amazing things. There are many movies that incorporate CGI and you never even notice it.
Following on from this, how did the leader of the galactic government get away time to go around and play sith in his supreme scheme. Did no one not notice that he was away while he was on Mandalore thrashing Maul? I can't imagine Obama just being allowed to wonder off and not have anyone know.
To be fair him heading off to thrash Maul and bro didn't take very long at all, he probably just said he needed the evening off because he was feeling tired or something. The rest of his plotting we see was also mostly just hooded holo-messages ordering his minions to keep the ball rolling. He probably did most of the actual legwork, like firing up the clone cookers, years before he was such a public figure.
One of my favs too, there's zero fucking droids in that game other than him, 88, and Hk-47
playable anyway, there's like a half dozen fucking Battle droid variants as just enemies alone
>people keep forgetting sly Moore and that big blue alien guy who's name I forgot
He had co-conspirators, just a handful. Fuckin Jesus this was in TCW and the movies, if only briefly. Step it up /swr/
>unlocked Defenders in Commander
The time has come and so have I.
But it's obvious he was too pushed as a villain, and then he had a scene where he still struggles with the light inside him. Kylo will be redeemed in a way because the true villain is
To be fair, he never whined in the movie. All he showed were tantrums. To see true whining, watch Anakin in the prequels. That's whining.
Even ANH Luke whined more than Kylo.
>aww i want to go somewhere and get fucking power converters, fuck your farm uncle
Damn, Filoni wasn't lying when he said Chopper was evil and could be Snoke.
This little shit is a dick but i still like him only because it has more personality than the stupid C3PO and R2 combine
i want to get the bb8 toy but it's fucking expensive
Reading this comic makes me realize something about Luke and why he kid struggled so much with the Force.
He really did have too much Uncle Owen in him.
As much as the vocal minority hates Rey she grew up on her own with stories. She was still very much like a kid in so many ways. Chomping away at her meals like a kid, licking her plate clean, wearing an old pilot helmet and dreaming of getting the hell off of Jakku. Hell, even the way she slides down dunes. She has the stories of the Jedi, believes they are stories until some old guy says they're all true. She believes him. She has no concept of what her limitations might be.
Ezra was on his way to becoming that. Again, no parents, left to his own. He lived like a street rat without a formal education, did what he pleased, and managed to flourish. When he sees what Kanan can do he tries to emulate it. If it weren't for the awkward teenage boy qualities getting in his way... But at least he's gotten a lot better.
Luke, however, had Uncle Owen grilling a harsh style of reality in Luke's head, verbally beating the dreamer out of the boy. Luke struggles to reach out to something greater, something intangible and wonderful. Even after he sees what Yoda can do he can't believe it.
Well he did what he could but he was as far from a Jedi as could be, and wanted Luke as far from it as possible. You get that line in the OT when Obi-Wan tells Luke, "That's your Uncle talking." While Luke has a lot of Anakin he also wound up with a lot of Uncle Owen.
One of the reasons the Jedi like to start training so young. Get to people before they have any notions of what is possible or impossible. Plus it helps to fully indoctrinate them into the Jedi philosophy. Oh, and keeps them from any outside attachments for the most part.
I kind of sort of collect the 6-inch Black Series, and I would definitely buy more, but they make truly odd choices about characters (the alien X-Wing pilot from TFA...who dies? Constable Zuvio, who isn't in the movie?) to produce and never make more of the really popular ones (Darth Maul now goes for $200 at the lowest on Amazon) or explore the new EU.
Relating to toys, I heard a rumor that Lego may be doing Captain Rex's AT-TE home. I hope Gregor comes with his Clone Commando armor if he is actually in the set
This website may or may not be accurate
>Filoni, Pablo told me terrible things

>Come away with me, help me raise a new series. Leave everything else behind while we still can
>Don't you see? We don't have to run away anymore! I have brought peace to the fandom. I am more powerful than Lucas, I can overthrow him! And together you and I can rule the fanbase! Make the series the way we want them to be!
>I don't believe what I'm hearing, Pablo was right. I don't know you anymore! Filoni, you're breaking my heart! You're going down a writing path I can't follow!
i read this in their voices
my autism has caused me to tear up
Nothing can be said just yet about Sheev knowing all forms, but Yoda being the Grand Master of the Jedi Order, should be able to know all forms. Thats why their lighsaber duel in the senate was so close.
>Also why didn't he use his second lightsaber v Mace or Yoda?
This is only speculative, but when the need arises, he only keeps a one lightsaber on his person and two for full out sheeving(as in the case for Maul and Savage). One was lost during the fight with Mace. He probably still has the other one though.
I'm going through Clone Wars, and it's pretty good so far, but there's a whole lot of show to watch and it feels like a lot of it is gonna be filler. What episodes do you guys recommend watching?
inb4 someone says all of them
The finest trooper of the Republic.

Why is Owen such an asshole in ANH and the Comics? Obi-Wan gave him a son and the guy always looked pretty cool but now he is a dick
If we spent two goddamn trailers going on about family ties and not have her as a Skywalker I'm going to be pissed
>muh broader universe
Fuck you, you do not set up a mystery so obvious and have a different conclusion.
I'd honestly prefer if she wasn' related to anyone at all, and that the Force just comes to people who are truly on the Light side, but if the hack frauds had to tie familia in, I'd rather it be with Obi-Wan than Luke, cus then there'd be more pararells and table turning
>Why is Owen such an asshole in ANH and the Comics?
Because doesn't want to deal with the rest of the Skywalker family and wants Luke and his wife to live peaceful lives on Tatooine.
I'm not gay, but if Ewan wants to fuck my ass I will not oppose
Palpatine had Luke's severed hand recovered, and was making a genetic clone Skywalker daughter to surprise Vader with.
Rey is the new
So he used them one at a time then apparently? Well whatever.
I wish the PT had more Sheev. Like showing us more behind the scenes of him being evil and plotting and shit and using his powers at times like maybe to keep Maul or Dooku in their place.
>>ywn be gangbanged by Hera, Sabine, and SS.

This is a good thing. I liked having Star Wars during the holidays.
It would be awesome if watching Star Wars became a Christmas tradition!
>Every Star Wars had always been released in may for the summer movie season because they knew that the movies were just shitty blockbuster hopefuls
>Now they're released for award season.
>The lesson the Chinese took from Star Wars is that democracy doesn't work and that the Empire was right.
>The rewrite the script so the heroes abandon the dream of having a republic and embrace totalitarianism.
The source didn't mean just Rey and Poe.
What they said was that they were making the roles of two new characters smaller in order to have the focus be more on the characters we got to know in the first film like Rey, Poe, and probably Finn. They are also replacing the old two new characters role with a role for an Asian actress as.
So it seems like the quote is a little out of context
>I said before there were two young female roles, now I actually heard that the rewrite will make these roles smaller. They want to get to know better the characters they already have. So the new rewrite is shrinking the new roles in order to spend more time with Rey, Poe and so on.
Basically, there's an Asian girl who was being added to the main cast, but they're rewriting the script and reducing her role to spend more time with Rey and Poe "and so on," which may or may not include Finn.
Could it be Jessica Henwick getting a bigger role? I'm cool with this. She'll be like if Wedge was an asian qt.
Will they be happy about a new female character, or angry that her (and possibly Finn's) roles are being reduced?
Ehh, I think we already know the answer, Tumblr can never be happy about anything.
China is huge, if they think they can squeeze a few extra million out of them by adding asian actors, I have no doubt they will.
They did the same thing with the recent Marvel movies, although I remember it backfired hilariously.
>It's going to be an Avatar 2 vs Ep VIII December
More like angry that an racial diversity is being crushed once again by the white folk, regardless of gender.
I agree. They'll bitch about anything; from board games to award shows where award shows win awards.
>tfw the qt asian is Finn's love interest
It would be banned in China. The keks would be
Oh right, that is a thing that exists. Honestly, I think mainstream audiences have gotten over the wow factor of Avatar a long time ago, they're not going to choose another movie of blue people over Star Wars.
Like 6 hours give or take
>"Avatar's" sequel, "Avatar 2" was previously reported to be released in 2017, with two more sequels following a year apart from each other. However, Cameron already gave out a more specific timeline, and according to him the first sequel will come out in Christmas next year.
Reposting from /v/
After a lot of work I managed to get my hands on Star Wars Battlefront III and wanted to share the infamous cancelled game that I'm sure many of you wanted to play.
I know not everyone will get the chance to play this immediately, but over time I expect the modding community to be able to change that.
The game build works on Xbox 360 Development kits, XNA kits, Test kits, and any 360 that can use RGLoader (which makes it be treated like a Development kit) so if your 360 is modded you can get it working via RGLoader.
Some important notes
-Xenia the 360 emulator will crash if you use it. It may work in the future but for now it does not.
-Default.xex and bf_gold.xenon.xex act the same as far as I can tell but I'm likely wrong.
-When booting you'll get a purple screen. It's cool just hit the Start button and wait a moment and you'll get to the title screen.
-Expect poor framerate.
-Expect anything I didn't list here.
I have made both a Mega upload and a torrent for this build. I would prefer you use the Mega link unless you wish to use the torrent to seed. I will not be uploading the game to Mega again after it's been removed (if it will be), so once the link is down there use the torrent.
The game build: https://mega.nz/#!zQUj3LqL!4T4MRLn9YnU3fDE6wsvp6xGavNlrROFl0a2DFpDX_CE
The torrent: https://mega.nz/#!ORtQEJQK!M3wX9s1uSnzpQUvtrJQhbo0nKqDaiCEvmE03jLJZ3b0
I am currently processing a short video of the game once booted, and will post or edit when the link is available.
I hope you all have a nice time with this, some may be mad at me but the story behind this build is a disaster and not releasing it will cause more issues than anything else.
Sincerely - ProtoFaggot
I thought Avatar was that movie that everyone went to for the special effects and found out that it was really boring and long. Is there an Avatar fandom? Does anyone like that movie?
ripanon here. If Disney doesn't screw up, 1080p of new episode should be up in 6,5 hours
On the one hand, I still hate that they brought him back at all. It never needed to happen, it defies logic, and it cheated Savage out of any real development he could've had.
On the other hand, I fucking love Sam Witwer's performance and every episode from Spider Maul to Sheev curbstomping some posers on Mandalore was awesome to watch.
>Is there an Avatar fandom?
Not of any note. There were reports of "Na'vi-kin" in the weeks after its release, but they were either outright fiction, greatly exaggerated, or they totally unplugged and went off to live in the forest, because its online presence is nil.
>Does anyone like that movie?
I liked it. Not my favorite Cameron movie (that would be The Abyss), but it was alright. I feel kind of bad for Cameron getting so hooked on it, though. It's like his Prequels. I just wish he'd made Alita...
Anyone else hope they get Mike Mayhew to do more Star Wars comics? SW#15 is absolutely gorgeous.
He's expressed interest in doing more adventures with young Luke Skywalker, if given the chance.
It's real the dude posted .webms on /v/. WOOKIEES WITH MELEE WEAPONS were gonna be it
Interesting how Obi-Wan refuses to use his lightsaber. Not too surprising, of course, even if Hutt Space isn't part of the Empire. Then in the OT he has no problem openly flashing his saber even when there are Stormtroopers in town with them.
I remember it was discussed here a long time ago. Some decided it was just because Obi-Wan knew he was heading off-world and didn't mind revealing himself, so to speak. Others theorized (and I'm actually a bit partial to this) that because Luke was never trained Obi-Wan is using himself as a primary example of the Jedi, complete with whipping out his sword and taking off some dude's arm. Sure Obi-Wan could have TKed him or just cut the blaster, probably/maybe, but he was giving an almost exaggerated view of what the Jedi stand up for. Defending the innocent and kicking ass.
Anyone have any thoughts on the matter?
They better be re-writing the script for Episode 8 to make Finn a jedi or something because they gave him the shaft at the end of Awakens. Seriously, he's the driving force of the plot for most of it and then at the last 15 minutes it's "lol gotta push Rey for Summerslam".
Kylo brings up all sorts of pottery in my family
>We're both named Adam
>Both from Indiana
>My brother looks just like the guy, dressed as him for the premiere
>His name is Matt

Fucking pottery overload.
There's only one Jedi, m8, and his padawan already found him.
>we will never get KOTOR 3 because of this game
Revan and Meetra Surikare gone forever because of this game
>this is what it fucking looks like
I wonder if they were abandoned. Does she know that some of the temples aren't entirely abandoned (assuming those temple guard guys are actually in an old temple and didn't set up their own dojo somewhere)
He's the Jeff Goldblum to Rey's Will Smith. Just like Jeff Goldblum in Independence Day, Finn drives the story forward and stops the evil ship but Will or Rey is the main character who saves them at the end.
Dubs confirms good idea.
>cataloging her adventure
>fighting dark jedi as bosses racing to find jedi holocrons to find the temple with the white sabers (end goal of the game)
>each temple you explore has a different part of the saber
>final temple has the crystals
good idea y/n?
>Yavin (Death Star Debris)
>Death Star II
STOP, PLEASE STOP, I CANT
Maybe add some survival elements, like selling stuff to survive and that you have to steal a map with the location of those temples in a stealth mission or something.
>we will never have an Ahsoka game.
Enjoy your Season Pass, nerd. 10 YEARS No but really sorry you were fooled.
Yes, cAnon. Let the sadness flow through you.
> had an 'accident" before being deployed in Iraq with his unit
South Korea agreed to have Seoul be a primary location in Avengers 2, and paid approx $3 million in the deal, and apparently they hated the poor representation they got.
A-At least Battlefront is getting free DLC this month. I-I'm sure it'll save the game!
>I-I'm sure it'll save the game!
Nothing will save this game, it was D.O.A. when we knew EA was in charge of it. Do you think they will ever admit they were wrong, or are they just gonna pretend every thing is fine?
I-I didn't liked to escape from my enemies anyways. The new Battlefront is better, right?
Oh man, no. I could've gotten the chance to play with my favorite Star Wars blaster in BFIII.
No kidding. The only reason they moved GOTG 2 up originally was because of the massive surprise success the movie had. Having an even bigger franchise -if not the juggernaut to end all juggernaut franchises- come out 2 weeks later was insane.
I'm more excited for GOTG 2 anyways.
They did, they admitted that the game didn't meet their sales expectations, and that they didn't meet their primary audience's expectations.
That's why we're getting free DLC in the first place, instead of confining it all to the Season Pass, it's damage control.
They've also done a survey about Battlefront 2 and if we want multiple era's, space, ect.
So yeah, they know they fucked up. Thing is, I feel like the core developers don't care. They made a game for themselves, they don't give a fuck if the players wanted Clones, or Space, because they didn't.
>were they stingy with content?
You have NO idea.
>2 starfighters per faction
>No Rebel ground vehicles (just 1 for Empire)
>4 planets (at launch, Jakku patched in as free DLC)
>Customization is basically "take of your helmet, and choose a minority to play as" if you're Empire
>Same thing as Rebels, but there's like 5 aliens you can play as too (which don't have any customization options)
>Game is broken as fuck with plenty of exploits
>Next to no weapon variety (Auto-Rifles consist of the default weapons + Boba's gun. 1 "Modified Jawa Blaster" as a shotty. One semi-auto rifle which is just a reskin of another gun, lazy as fuck)
>Playlists are 1 game mode each because Dice are retarded
>The "new" game mode (it's two months old) only has one playable map in its entire playlist because Dice are that fucking lazy. And I fully expect all DLC game modes to be like this.
>The Fighter Squadron mode is the only game mode with AI. The maps are just the ground maps but you fly in the sky. The game mode is irreversibly broken so that it's impossible to win as the Empire. Players just take turns winning as the Rebels.
>No single player
Shall I go on?
The entire game is a tragedy when you compare it to what Free Radical was trying to do.
>mfw people continue to buy EA games
They're parasitic scum and they've always been parasitic scum. At beast they're the McDonalds of video games, cheap, nasty and bought by people who don't know any better.
I'll add, before they even revealed the content (or lack of) in the game, they announced a Season Pass that was almost the same price as the fucking game, promising it would have more content than the game does at launch.
They then proceeded to wait until a week after TFA before conveniently revealing that there would be no TFA content in the DLC. Or Clone Wars for that matter.
There's going to be 1 hero character per DLC, and 1 game mode per DLC, and 4 maps, presumably on one planet.
But they have the balls to call these "Expansion Packs", and charge the most expensive Season Pass ever.
I'm getting mad just typing this.
>Star Wars just beat Avatar in terms of box office money, my lord. Victory is ours
>"We have merely wounded James Cameron, my apprentice. But we have not defeated him."
>My lord, you don't possibly mean-
>"We will defeat him on a public stage, so all can see how superior our investment into the Star wars license has become. We will move the release of Episode VII to correspond Avatar 2."
>My lord, that's suicide!
>"Do you doubt the dark side of the force, my apprentice?"
>F-Forgive me, my lord.
>"Rise, my apprentice. Do not lower yourself in my presence. Soon, the world will know the name Darth Disney. And you, my young JJAbrams, will be by my side as we converge this world into our image."
>I feel like the core developers don't care.
DICE just used this game to see how their art department did, that was it, the scenes in this game are gorgeous, absolutely stunning, but holy shit is this GAME is fucking horrid. That's all Battlefront III is, a massive art project so the creators could wank off to, while leaving the actual people that play the game in the dust.
Fucking great. They will improve the script. I love that we'll getting this new Star Wars movies in christmas. Rogue One will come out in December too
>They're parasitic scum and they've always been parasitic scum.
They're casuals that eat everything up in the hype of a new movie for about three months and leave once a new and shiny game/movie comes out. Unfortunately, that leaves the people that have been loyal for decades out in the dust.
JJ was weak he's gona now. Darth Johnson is Mickey's apprentice now.
I'm confident they will destroy Cameron. He's a shitty person who makes shitty movies, now that everyone knows Avatar is just blue Pocahontas he won't rope in so many retards.
I'd hate to be the guy that runs Del Rey's Star Wars Facebook page.
Because they wanted to make the game canonically accurate, so the Rebel vehichles have shields, but the TIE's don't. This would be ok, if they had done more to balance this. (TIE's do more damage, or have more players, or have the game mode be some kind of challenge for Rebels, ect)
But they don't.
But that's not even the fucking half of it.
The Hero Vehicles are teh Millenium Falcon, and the Slave I.
The Millenium Falcon has this exploit that almost had me throw my controller into a wall one game.
Essentially, you can activate your shields and thrusters at the same time, become an invulnerable battering ram, and blow up anything you fly into instantly. Including the Slave I.
People figured this out, and now it's impossible to play as the Slave I because the Falcon will immediately speed into you like Sonic the fucking Hedgehog. Happened to me twice in one game and I felt like snapping the disc.
>now it's impossible to play as the Slave I because the Falcon will immediately speed into you like Sonic the fucking Hedgehog
This is funny, not in a good way, but funny.
I hope this is from that Christmas after ANH first game out when they didn't have toys yet so the parents could only buy empty boxes with vouchers.
So many kids must have gone to the dark side that year.
>>79162125I was happy as shit when Battlefront was announced, then i rememberred that EA was going to publish it, i knew they would settle for the lowest quality possible. I'm happy that i didn't buy it, the game is an abomination compared to the other Battlefront games
I said before about the playlists having one game mode each, but I'll expand on it.
Some of these game modes are VERY similar. Drop Zone and Droid Run are near enough the same thing except there's three objectives at once in Droid Run.
Walker Assault is just Turning Point, without the Walkers, ditto with Supremacy.
The player count for the playlists is diminishing quickly because of how crappy the game is, so some of these playlists are becoming empty, fast. They should combine the relevant game modes into single playlists, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.
Like, Hero Hunt, and Heroes Vs Villains, why the fuck are they not in the same playlist. NOBODY plays Hero Hunt. And while we're on that game mode, it's fucked to shit because people realized only the last shot on a hero counts, so they just sit back with a sniper, and then steal the kill to get the points and play as the hero.
Fuck me, its shitty.
OH, and the Lightsabers, holy fucking shit, I swear to you, the lightsaber combat is worse than Battlefront 2. There's only two Lightsaber users in the entire game, and the combat (ESPECIALLY Luke) consists of swinging wildly like a retard with a baseball bat, and having the character uncontrollably lunge in every direction except the one you want.
>But what about that cool saber lock thing from the trailer
HAH, GOOD LUCK, that never happens, ever, because its only activated when both players hit the heavy attack at the same time, which is the lungiest and slowest attack ever, so nobody uses it.
And when a hero is hit with a lightsaber, they get stunned, so essentially, 90% of encounters is;
>X hits Y with lightsaber
>Button mash until Y is dead while Y desperately tries to use the force or some shit to get out of being stun locked
It's so fucking shitty.
Oh, and characters only have 1 skin, so Luke is only ever in his RotJ costume, and Leia is always dressed for Hoth, even on Tatooine.
At least Sheev and Boba sound cool.
without playing the game and knowing its EA, im inclined to believe every thing you say.
but i have one simple question, do you go back to play every night?
I play maybe once or twice a week if I'm craving a Star Wars fix, but I am usually reminded quickly by how fucked it all is, and stop.
I've spent way more time playing the damn mobile games.
Essentially, that's exactly what it was.
Funny thing is, RotS's "shitty tie-in vidya" was actually surprisingly good. Which just hammers down how shit Battlefront is, even if you consider it TFA's vidya tie-in.
>Because they wanted to make the game canonically accurate, so the Rebel vehichles have shields, but the TIE's don't. This would be ok, if they had done more to balance this. (TIE's do more damage, or have more players, or have the game mode be some kind of challenge for Rebels, ect)
The canonical balance would be to have like 10+ tie fighters for every x-wing, but I don't know how they'd pull that off.
Battlefront was a sales fuck-up, a critical fuck-up, and a PR disaster. And yet you just know - YOU JUST KNOW - that the only thing EA will take away from this situation will be to add like maybe half the stuff they removed from Battlefront 2 and call it a day.
Rebels is already confirmed for a third season anon. That'll finish by May (I asssume) next year and go on summer break, assuming it gets picked up for a fourth. If it does, then we wait for that to premiere a month or two before 8 comes out.
The AI fighters are kinda crappy and rarely get kills. If they got rid of Rebel AI, and gave it all to the Empire, that would probably be enough to make the battles convincing and balanced.
>rebels will be finished by then
Assuming Rebels ends at Season 3, it'd end spring of that year, so there would only be a few months absence. (The comics and books will still be releasing if you're following those)
It's really fun. Follows the movie fairly accurately, but includes a lot of the deleted scenes as extra missions. You get to fight Cin Drallig as a boss when you storm the Jedi Temple as Anakin, and there's even an alternate ending where Anakin kills sheev.
I also remember the vs mode being fun as fuck, and I enjoyed seeing all of the alternate costumes for the characters. IIRC Greivous's p2 had quad-red lightsabers.
