The Incom T-65 X-wing is the fighter that killed the Death Star.
An almost perfect balance of speed, maneuverability, and defensive sheilds, makes this the fighter of choice for Rogue Squadron, except when the mission profile disallows it.
In addition to 4 blaster cannons, the X-wing can carry a number of proton torpedoes. It's power by 4 fusial trhust engines, and requires an on-board astromech droid for peak performance.
You missed the First Strike Mod for Battlefield 2142. Player controlled Corellian Corvettes, Nebulon Frigates, Lancer Frigates, and Dreadnaught Cruisers. Not to mention A-Wings, Y-Wings, X-Wings, B-Wings, Tie Fighters, Tie Bombers, and Tie Interceptors.
32v32 players, sometimes more. The space battles were amazing.
The Y-Wing is the workhorse of the Rebel fleet. It's not quick or flashy, but it gets the job done
Why werent there any good prequel starfighter games? Factor 5 didnt go under until 2007 or so, after Lair flopped
give it 9 more years
I'm betting everything on Sebulba. He ALWAYS wins!
Gtfo, if you're not piloting one of these you're trash.
that game was a decent rogue squadron clone
I don't think rogue squadron 64 has aged that well though. All the fighters just fly through waypoints like their own tracks until you shoot them down. Rather than actively trying to hunt anyone they just hope you're dumb enough to fly in front of them. Turrets and walkers on the ground felt like the only realy threat. It's still fun it just isn't as hard as I remembered it.
>tfw Rogue Squadron 4 is finished but it will stay to rot in a vault somewhere, never to be released.
it was pretty good, more story oriented though still had replayability and tons of unlocks, but factor 5 took a lot of liberties with some craft like the police fighter, the bomber, and the speeders. You pretty much needed the expansion pack to play it though. Not required, but you can tell a big difference without it
Interceptors were already shown in Ep6 so it's not like they don't exist. You could assume the empire's cutting back on costs or something. The Bwing got retconned pretty hard in the Rebels cartoon though.
>You could assume the empire's cutting back on costs or something
That's retarded. The interceptor was the TIE fighter's upgrade but still cheap. There were only a few in Jedi because they had recently gone into production but by the time TFA rolls around they should be the standard. It would be like the rebels going back to using Y-wings to "cut costs". You don't see people using VCRs anymore because DVD/Blu-ray players are dirt cheap so there is no cost advantage.
>beginning to notice rosh's voice actor in countless other games
>cant WAIT to kill another one of ulfrics boys
whenever an imperial soldier said that in his voice in skyrim i just heard

He was also like a billion different characters in KOTOR1

also, that mark hamill impersonator that >>322984003 mentioned is in pretty much every game that features luke skywalker
Only the Gods can play new good Star Wars games.
>not knowing who Jason Marsden is
>recognizing his voice in Skyrim over Max Goof or Boy meets World or Full House and other popular 90's shows/cartoons
I bet you consider yourself a 90's kid.
I didn't watch the movie yet, but what's the empire's position of power in the new movie? Are they like the imperial remnant with only a few systems under their control? If they have a ton of spare parts for mass produced Tie Fighters, why not use 'em.
Probably based on this. Maybe?
If you call a small terrorist group who steal children into soldiers a threat. Plus the New Republic doesn't even care about the remnant. They just gave Commander Leia like 6 modded X-wings and said "Good Luck"
The K-wing is one of the most recent starfighters produced by Koensayr for the New Republic's ongoing conflicts with the imperial remnant forces and other threats. Descendants of the y-wing, k-wings first appeared during the black fleet crisis 16 standard years after the battle of yavin, and have been mobilized for nearly every subsequent conflict. The k-wing's ideal mission profile involves close-range, precision bombardment of planetary targets, space stations, or slow-moving capital ships. However, it is also a competent escort fighter and short-range reconnaissance vehicle.
>This is a new craft...
Mah nigga. World devastators never stood a chance.
The Empire has basically broken down and the First Order is taking the ideologies of the Empire while "fixing" the flaws.
The First Order is relatively small. However, the new TIE Fighters are worlds better than the Interceptor.
How can a bunch of rebels build a navy/air force? and with their own ship designs?
How can they train so many pilots? where do they get all the engineers and other specialists required to design and build a massive fleet? where do they get the gorillions of money required to build all of this?
You're telling me that ISIS can build F-22s and destroyers?
Star wars is trash.
Rogue leader, the E-wing escort fleet has arrived.
Multiple Planets and systems were sympathetic to the Rebellion and later joined them outright after the Battle of Yavin. Most of INCOM, the biggest Starfighter manufacturer in the galaxy defected to the Alliance shortly before Yavin.
no that was spaceballs: the movie: the game!
The world building of the new movie was shit. The characters are good though and thats all the normies care about.
Literally everything in the world was rehashed stuff, nothing new.
>x wing is almost exactly the same
>no new ships
>LOL BIGGER DEATH STAR
>instead of making a small, mobile death star
>LOL THREE PRONGED LIGHT SABER
>No new walkers
>No new anything cool
yes, that's my biggest disappointment. at least the prequels introduced some cool shit like ATTE's, hellfire droids, destroyer droids, etc.
>How can a bunch of rebels build a navy/air force? with their own ship designs?
by stealing them and/or constructed by rebel sympathizer scientists.
>how can they train so many pilots?
imperial defectors, people training at the imperial academies then jumping ship to join the alliance.
>where do they get all the engineers and other specialists required to design and build a massive fleet? where do they get the gorillions of money required to build all this
funding from the princess of alderaan and disenfranchised imperial senators that no longer had any power other than personal influence after the emperor dissolved the senate
>you're telling me that ISIS can build F-22's and destroyers?
ISIS doesn't even have this planet under it's control, the rebel alliance was a galaxy wide movement
what the fuck do you have to say for yourself /v/
A lot of famous Rebel pilots were actually former Imperial pilots that defected after Alderaan's 6 million dead. They did get a fair bit of support from a number of systems like Mon Cal. I don't think they were ever as big as CIS though.
I think Star Wars is extremely misleading, because what the situation most likely is is that the Rebel Alliance is a group/conglomerate of planets and people who openly defy the Empire and live outside of it's jurisdiction, or live within it's jurisdiction but carry enough firepower between the group of them to stop the empire from going full Scorched Earth on them.
What most people see the Rebels as is a guerrilla group operating under cover to overthrow the empire. So if you see the Rebel Alliance as the first theory, it makes more sense.
It was implied CIS was extremely powerful and the Clones barely were able to win. The stupid prequel movies did a terrible job of showing it. Basically every other fiction made it seem like CIS could probably destroy the current Empire.
The movies weren't revolving around the battles so of course it wouldn't show that, but the fact they got to fucking Coruscant and were fighting above it in 3 should have given you an idea of their strength since you're already aware it was the heart of the Republic.
Actually, I think Interceptors had been around for a while by the time of Ep VI. TIE Fighter has you fly them pretty early on, and that game starts right after the Rebels leave Hoth.
I just realized that whenever the written star wars language is shown they don't use the english alphabet, but these ships are named after the shape of english words. Star Wars is ruined for me forever now.
We've gotta be able to get some kind of a reading on that shield, up or down.
>LOL AT-AT WITH 12 LEGS
no we have that too
>fixed wing attack aircraft
>ski landing gear
>twin-barrel ball turret in the front that can't see shit in the rear
looks like someone cross-bred a Su-25 and something from Warhammer 40k
kill it with fire
God fucking damn. The nostalgia is making me feel so fucking hard right now.
Republic was getting BTFO hard early on in the clone wars, was not until they advanced military technology and developed new tactics that they got the upper hand, its a shame the movies don't do anything to make the CIS seem like an actual threat.
Z-95 Headhunter? The oldest rebel fleet fighter? That piece of junk? I don't think so.
>least the prequels introduced some cool shit like ATTE's, hellfire droids, destroyer droids, etc.
my nigga, I always loved the big droid designs, especially the Hailfire and Tank Droids.
>been around for a while
We're getting into semantics but it was produced sometime around/after V which would be still relatively recent as far as military tech goes come VI. Either way it makes sense for them to be limited in number in VI but there's no excuse for TFA.
Rebels are like the OPA from pic related. People's duct taped handmedown family ships fighting a professional force supported by scattered limited bases. They eventually started building their own Navy but it took mad long
Do you need a joystick for these games? The closest thing to a joystick that I have is a ps3 controller where one of the analog sticks is bent slightly upward which fucks up a lot of games
Maybe they just decided to try out the interceptor design for awhile but then they decided that the fighter was better? It's pretty obviously that going back the the X wing after the b wing was a good idea
Least they could do is put this into an actual movie.
>No fuck the expanded universe and the free non-shit vehicle designs
>faster with more guns for a fighter that relies entirely on speed
>n-no let's go back to the old one
I'm gonna assume your trolling but there's your reply. You'll come up with any mental gymnastics to defend a shit movie anyway.
The Super Star Destroyer going down like that made zero sense. You are telling me that giant ship has no contingency HQs or a ship that can survive hyperspace and planetary lasers can't handle a vehicle crash? Shit is worse than the Oscillator being hit in Starkiller Base
The Interceptor is straight up better than the Fighter in literally every way. Faster, more maneuverable, more guns, can carry missiles without modifications, smaller and harder to hit. There is no reason to go back to the Fighter unless you have no choice.
This is a Corellian YT-1300 freighter. I don't know where this ship came from, but it is NOT within the set parameters for a civilian transport. It has been illegally modified with 2 quad guns, one mounted cannon, several escape pods, a completely new sublight engine, several stealth and communications jamming additions and a large secret cargo area. Not the prettiest ship, but an excellent choice...if you're a smuggler.
Battlefront II nigga
you can still play it online with a service called gameranger
the cool thing is that you can board enemy capital ships to destroy their subsystems
>yfw BF2, a ten year old game, literally has more content than the new SWBF
B-Wing and TIE Defender are da best
>give it 9 more years
Not even then, because Disney gutted LucasArts and is just holding it as a brand name
There will literally never be a good Star Wars game again. It was fun while it lasted lads
My source is pic related. Does that fall under non-canon EU? It takes place during the original trilogy.
I'm asking honestly - I'm not up to date on how all the canon fuckery works out. I thought it was just "anything that takes place after Ep. VI isn't official anymore".
Yep. Non canon. If it isn't the movies, the prequels, and some of the new comics marvel has put out it aint canon
personally, if it doesn't conflict with any pre-existing content I consider it canon in my world.
That said, I've just started reading the thrawn trilogy and I'm pissed that it got retconned, would've made a way better episode 7
as much as I liked it despite the episode 4 plagarism
Even if we're going by the films they have a harder-to-hit profile from the side and yes they do shoot 4 lasers instead of 2. You know there's a ton of canon design documentation for these things that doesn't make it into the movie for the 2 seconds they appear but does into the games right? It wasn't just a bunch of devs getting high and making it up.
the new TIE fighters are bigger and better than before. with a new turret with twin laser cannons and explosive ordinance that can be controlled by a rear gunner, it also sports shields and a hyperdrive.
I mean we're going to get 1-2 Star Wars movies a year until the end of time so it is all going to conflict eventually. Only era that might be safe for head canons is Tor because I can't see anything else going that far in the past
yeah and the tie fighter can have a crew of 2 with a rear facing turret apparently
would've made more sense for them to steal a lambda shuttle or something but they didn't use those vehicles either.
Hey buddy I have an alienware computer for you that's bigger and better than before. It has a DUAL core CPU and a rear fan. It even has integrated 3D graphics. What? You already have a quad core and... why are you laughing
The First Order Tie fighters with the turret are special forces ships with shields, hyperdrive and a more robust frame. It actually is a completely different ship from the original Tie fighters.
>there are people who don't play the god tier x-wing tabletop game
Star Destroyers functioned more like carriers than destroyers per se, the vast majority of the internal volume was used for troop quarters, hangars, deployable garrisons, etc
>worse than the oscillator being hit in Starkiller Base
glad they didnt use this enterprise
They wouldn't have been able to Thrawn movies because Luke/Leia/Han are too young at that point in the timeline
They could've at least not abolished the EU and then cannibalized ideas from it anyway
Kylo is basically Jacen Solo with every cool quality and development taken away from him.
>Jacen and Jaina train as Jedi under Luke
>Jacen becomes corrupted by the dark side, but keeps it secret until he holds enough power in the Galactic Alliance
>corrupts the Alliance from within
>Luke forms the Alliance-in-Exile and allies with the Imperial Remnant to stop Jacen
would've been WAY fucking cooler than the bullshit we got
you mean Star Wars Episode IV 2: Electric Boogaloo.
>everyone whining about the ships in Episode VII looking like the one sin the original trilogy
Did you forget that Lucas did the same shit in Episodes I, II, and III? Every single ship we saw in the prequels was direct predecessor of a ship in the OT, with only minor differences or being an obvious expy. Thee wasn't a single unique design in the entire PT. If anything VII was following this time-honored tradition.
I haven't seen ep7 yet but is it seriously that close to 4? Like i knew there were tons of similarities but it sounds like its a step away from being a scene for scene remake.
I loved that mission on co-op in Rogue Squadron III because the Lando dialogue was bugged to the point where he would spam WE GOTTA BUY MORE TIME every 2 seconds, to the point he would say it hundreds of times
it was so hard trying to fly my X-Wing while laughing my ass off
>There will never be an Open World Boba Fett game.
the core plot is essentially episode 4, the characters were different though. I understand they wanted to play it safe but whoever makes episode 8 better grow some balls and mix it up a bit.
Prequels had a bunch of designs that didn't blend with the OT designs at all, like the Naboo ships which had the smooth, shiny design of 40s/50s sci fi rather than the grungy 70s/80s sci fi style of the OT ships.
It is true. It's 80% ANH, 15% ESB, 5% new.
You can count on your fingers the number of scenes that aren't straight up taken from or a least a nod to OT scenes.
It's still a decent watch though. Finn & Poe are really likeable and it's interesting to see Harrison Ford actually look like he's enjoying acting again.
No, the entire idea of Starkiller base is fucking stupid
>don't need to get the plans from anywhere, they just "scan it" from across the galaxy and magically have the technical readout of the entire planet
>someone literally says "it's another death star" and the other guy goes "lol no, it's bigger, see?"
>Han's plan to get through the shield is to fly through it in hyperspace, because it's not like hyperspace needs precise calculations from the navicomputer. Nope, never been established
>Finn somehow knows what the thermal oscillator is and its exact location, but then says he's just a janitor a minute later
>Phasma has no resolve whatsoever and immediately submits to disabling the shields, which doesn't sound any kind of alarm or alert anyone else on the base
>the Rebels go on a bombing mission with fucking X-Wings when bombing missions are literally why Y-Wings and B-Wings exist
>they literally fly down a trench to destroy it
TFA is literally as bad as the prequels. fite me
How was it a clusterfuck?
The basic rule was that if one piece of media contradicted a previous piece of media, the contradiction wasn't canon. Anything else was canon. I don't see what's wrong with that and it was certainly better than this bullshit Disney is pulling
>btw, Han had a secret negress ex-wife before he met the rebels
>saved by a black man
More like the black man is depicted as a bumbling useless clown while the "princess" is le stronk female who never needs anyone's help and never struggles with anything
The only time Rey is even remotely vulnerable is when Kylo freezes and captures her, but then five minutes later she magically teaches herself how to mindtrick the lone stormie who's guarding her
but that's exactly why the OT was good
every character had a purpose and certain skills. seeing them fail was what made their eventual success satisfying.
VII is literally Rey getting herself out of every situation on her own
Jacen is a villain sue copy of Anakin Skywalker
At least Kylo Ren has some interesting stuff going on with him, using the legacy of Darth Vader to make up for his own inferiority complex and using the mask to hide his insecurities from the outside world
EU was and always will be garbage
It's not my fault that saying blatantly false things to defend something shitty makes you sound like a shill
IRL I would just think you were retarded, but online I dunno who the fuck you are
B-wings were made for coordinated attacks on capital ships, to destroy or cripple them to allow the ships they were escorting a way through. they were blockade breakers. if the Star Destroyers are cruisers and carriers, B-Wings are torpedo destroyers.
Y-wings are the dedicated bombers.
No it was worse than the prequels.
I always liked the OT more, but enjoyed the Prequels reasonably enough. I hated TFA.
The only thing I might be excited for is the fact that Snoke may be Darth Plagueis
>just watched Episodes IV through VI for the first time
>want to play a modern Star Wars game
>played the new battlefront at a friends house, most boring game I've ever played
FUCK. Is KOTOR 3 ever coming out?
>le mary sue maymay
gaymergay pls go, you're probably just mad the hero is a girl lmao
it's like you fucks are so used to subversive and "deconstructive" media that the hero beating the bad guy is just too much for you now
Disney would never do something that cool with it.
The only way they could make this new trilogy interesting would be for Kylo to return to the light and for Rey to go dark, but that would be too nuanced and would lose them strong womyn points
TFA is objectively a better made movie than the prequels. It shares some base similarities to ANH but what's going on with the characters is ENTIRELY different
I'm convinced most people who hated the movie are the faggots who wanted to hate it and muttered to themselves "this is reddit, this is memes" the whole time they were watching it
>no B-Wings in TFA
0/10, Fucking Lens flare jew can't do anything right
The whole situation is a fucking legal mess.
Factor 5 went bankrupt and their employees sued them for not being paid for their work in the game.
Factor 5 then changed it's name to White Harvest to avoid (or delay) their legal issues, finish the game and seek a publisher for the game but apparently no one wanted to publish it.
Then Lucas arts acquired the rights to the game but it was during the Disney sellout thing, so then Lucas Arts went defunct.
I doubt that game ever comes out unless it gets leaked.
I always wondered what role the B-Wings were supposed to fill; I figured they were just upgraded Y-wings in terms of function. Aren't they also supposed to be pretty good in dogfights due to all the extra firepower?
I wouldn't say she's a Mary Sue, she just has no personality, other than "I can do everything!"
Her entire character is "I must wait for family!"
>"You know your family isn't coming."
>"...Oh. Right. Okay."
If they had spent the whole movie showing her personal struggles, she would've been interesting. But instead she's got a hackneyed excuse to never have left Jakku, even though it was super easy for her, and then they decide they don't need it anymore and so she no longer has any problems ever again.
Like I said, incredibly boring.
>feels offended by something being called reddit
No really though it was full of Marvel-tier shit
>XD so do I talk first, u talk first? how's this work XDDD
>TELL THAT TO KANJIKLUB

>that's a story for another time
>now it's calling to you, now let's go get a butterbeer
>people believe that a series as vast as the old Star Wars EU never produced any good stories
Yeah, I noticed she's not really that bad at anything. She knows how to fight, fly, fix things, even teachs herself how to use some force powers. Finn at least has the urge to run away and escape; Poe was barely in the movie enough to get much of a read on him other than "wise-cracking pilot."
Not to mention she can pull the lightsaber away from Kylo when it took Luke two fucking movies to just barely be able to do that with no one else trying to pull it
I cringed so hard I could hear my teeth grinding
The Force is about belief, faggot. Literally the only thing stopping Luke from lifting that X-Wing out of the swamp was his own self-doubt.
That's the prequels making you think that to be a jedi you need to go to 20 years of Yoda school
She actually was being set up to be a dumb kid like Luke desperate for some kind of parental affection and that would have been fine if they kept with it instead of turning her into the Jedi Wunderkind Sue in the second half of the movie.
They can dogfight, but they're as slow as Y-Wings and not very maneuverable, even with their heavy shields they'd be cut to pieces by faster more agile opponents. Their primary role is killing capital ships.
>Also Luke was a Mary Sue in IV
Luke spends the entire first half of the movie getting pushed around, and the second half of the movie getting in the way. He does exactly two things right, he convinces Han to help save Leia, and blows up the Death Star (after nearly dying three times on the flight because he's an above average pilot at best).
He's also a character with actual emotions and goals.
>gets btfo by tuskens, obi-wan saves him
>gets btfo in the bar, obi-wan saves him
>not experienced enough for hyperspace travel, has to hire han to take them to alderaan
>follows han's and leia's lead on the death star, has no idea what he's doing
>so caught up in kenobi's death that kenobi has to remind him to run away
>about to btfo by vader in the trench, han returns to save him, needs obi-wan's guidance to make the shot
you're a fucking idiot.
I'm not appealing to the idea that it's impossible, I'm mocking you for being so stupid you judge the entire EU by Luuke Skywalker, cloned Sheev and the edgy sadomasochists from another galaxy. I've read lots of good and lots of bad Star Wars stories.
Finn having the urge to run away is stupid too.
>Supposedly brainwashed your whole life to support the First Order
>get deployed, see one of your friends get killed by rebels
>this somehow makes you like the rebels
R E T A R D E D
It should've been a gradual transition, that escape scene felt like it should've been halfway through the movie instead of at the beginning
Not to mention his experience with flying is said in the movie itself with that cocky "I used to bullseye womp rats with my T-16 back home" line.
As far as we know, how does Rey have experience with ANYTHING flying other than just theory?
Too bad there was no reddit audience to appeal to at the time, and all of his shit was constrained to his character. That was the point of 3PO, to be prissy and annoying
You might genuinely be fucking retarded if you think GotG quips are anything like 3PO in the OT
I actually would have liked to have seen some conflict in loyalties there. Like maybe the Order itself is bad, but the grunts in the trenches can be alright, so he feels bad about fighting his former brothers. Instead they all just turned into neo-nazis who immediately kick the puppy by torching that village.
Wedge "Hung Horse" Antilles aka true hero of Star Wars and real man and real human being.
>no Y-Wings in TFA
>no A-WIngs in TFA
I am so mad.
>Disney wants to establish new universe that they can do anything they want with
>Introduce new characters to replace old ones
>Safe start, will make bank no matter what and gets people invested
Really the only reason why they didn't set it 100 years in the future was so they could nab the old fans with nostalgia.
In the novel based on the movie and released before the movie, Wedge instantly mocks him for comparing the Death Star to rodent hunting. Keep in mind this novel contains many scenes that were cut from the movie like Luke and Biggs talking on Tatooine before Luke buys the droids.
>"I understand you've become quite a good pilot yourself"
>"I could, I'm not such a bad pilot myself"
>"Luke here is the best bush pilot in the outer rim"
It's well established he knows how to fly a T-14, which is basically like going from a Buick to a Mercedes.
Rogue Leader. Rebel Strike suffers from shitty ground levels, and the worst VA for Wedge. Rogue Leader doesn't overstay its welcome and has a shit ton of replayability without having any outright negative aspects.
Aspects from the prequels didn't negatively impact Rebel Strike, they've always been a part of the series.
>That prison level
>all of tatooine
Definitely held no punches
how are the characters shit? I know Rey is le mary sue maymay because you're mad a female is good at things, but the other characters are objectively great
Kylo Ren is probably one of, if not the, most complex characters in the entire series
I never, ever beat the second Tatooine mission. Hard as fucking balls.
I had to use cheats to get around it. I've beaten the entire rest of the game on hard, but never beat Tatooine.
Except for Gardula's palace and Longo Two-Guns. I beat them both.
A bit off topic but at the Fallout 4 launch parties the female celebs and groupies were complaining that the life size Codworth model was scaring them and asking for it to be removed
Poe is a glorified extra so he's out right away.
You already mention Flawless Rey
Any complexity you can bring up about the edgelord is nothing more than fanfiction and hoping VIII saves him.
Finn manages to be the best and that's because he's just a joke character that gets beat up all the time and runs away whenever he can.
>Any complexity you can bring up about the edgelord is nothing more than fanfiction and hoping VIII saves him.
It's like you didn't pay attention to the monologue on the bridge or when he was talking to the Vader helmet and just concentrated on the tantrums
>Finn manages to be the best and that's because he's just a joke character that gets beat up all the time and runs away whenever he can.
How the fuck did he get past basic training as a stromtrooper?
No, only decent villain in the whole story was Vader, Emperror was generic evil mcevil and Maul wasn't even a real villain, just a silent henchman. Although that general dude that goes with Ren is alright.
>Not appreciating the character of Bark Vader
>you're mad a female is good at things
Fuck off tumblr
Leia was good at things too but in a way that left her character balanced. Rey is literally good at everything and might as well be the only character in the movie at the rate she's going
it still shocks me to this day that the N64 Rogue Squadron came out in 1998 and Episode One came out in 1999 BUT THEY ALREADY HAD THE NABOO STARFIGHTER FROM EPISODE ONE HIDDEN IN THE GAME ASKDA:NFBJADFLABNL
Yeah but they didn't mean for Anakin to come across that way, they were trying to make him a likeable character but he came across as a whingey little bitch for no reason- and the prequels had a lack of likeable characters already, so that made it even worse
>the entire movie is built around the Death Star, from opening crawl to the opening scene to the time with 3PO and R2 in the desert to Luke meeting Obi-Wan to Luke and Obi-Wan meeting Han to Luke and Han meeting Leia to Luke becoming a hero
>so there's this map but SURPRISE DEATH STAR 3.0 we're so awesome and here's some references for US NERDS in the audience
>yfw wondering why the fuck these weren't used to bomb the shit out of the exhaust port in Episode 7
Wrong, it's better than the prequels but worse than OT. Prequels had shit characters, shit writing and some good designs. TFA has slightly less shit characters, okay writing, and mostly bad designs. OT had good writing, character and designs.
Qui Gon was cool you faggot. Always defying the council because he can see how much of poopy heads they are. I remember "accidentally keeping" one of the young jedi books from the school library. All those young obi-wan and qui gon adventures.
>carpet bombing the shit out of ground forces with these big bastards
You don't need anything else.
Didn't they say it's actually really hard to hit a fighter with a turbolaser for some reason? If I remember correctly, all the Rebel fighters at the Death Star got killed by TIEs and not the turrets.
Fucking shitty compared to the n64 one.
Enemies 1hko if they ram into you
You can't see shit in space, now I know why they never did it on the n64.
No actual storyline like the n64 one, just random missions
GC stick is less sensitive than n64 stick so flying feels worse.
She knew the force was a thing, they had all heard the legends of the original trilogy. I guess it's up for debate if she had ever seen it used I guess.
Also, I think that she is Luke's daughter because when we first see R2-D2, he doesn't wake up. The only new people around then are Finn and Poe. Later, when they bring Rey to the planet, Artoo wakes up.
SPACEBALLS THE REPLY
It's all right, at least it has more content than swgemu right now.
I never understood the need for the rotating cockpit. There is no relative up or down in space so why bother with it? In lore the rotation gave a lot of pilots motion sickness anyways.
One of my complaints about TFA, no variety in ships. The TIE fighters look like regular ones except coloured differently. Even the original Star Wars had Vader's advanced prototype. One of the things JewJew doesn't get about Star Wars.
Porkins straight up lost control and crashed into the death star. He had his inertial compensator too low because he was fat so he couldn't feel the fact that he was not pulling up like his instruments told him he was.
That is because Turbolasers are designed to destroy capital ships. The Death Star is designed to defend against a large scale assault by a fleet. No one would have expected a starfighter to be able to destroy the DS
mate you know you can't stop me from reading it in The Incom T-65 X-Wing is the fighter that killed the Death Star. An almost perfect balance of speed, maneuverability, and defensive sheilds, makes this the fighter of choice for Rogue Squadron, except when the mission profile disallows it. In addition to 4 blaster cannons, the X-wing can carry a number of proton torpedoes. It's power by 4 fusial trhust engines, and requires an on-board astromech droid for peak performance.
There were precautions in place in EP. 6 The Shield Generator made it so starfighters couldnt get through (plus what else did you expect the Empire to do, it wasnt finished yet)
and in EP. 7 the starfighters were unable to get through the armor defending the critical location. Ha it not been for Han's team the Resistance fighters would have failed. Same in Ep 6.
I like you anon. How about a royal gaurd interceptor?
That scene still feels weirdly specified to me. Why was this particular nameless trooper armed with the baton? Why was he the only one who cared enough about Finn's treachery to go mano-a-mano with him? And if this particular guy had history with Finn, why didn't Finn react in any personal way to him? It almost feels like it wasn't supposed to be a trooper but the ugly GoT chick or even Kylo Ren, but something fucked up.
Man I loved that episode of Thunderbirds.
How the fuck do you not realize the OP is quoting something. Have you not noticed that copy pasted post countless times even when it isnt an OP?
They say that in the original Rogue Squadron when the player hovers over the X-Wing for a few seconds.
>Kylo is far gone
And Vader wasn't? The point of redemption is that you can never be too far gone, you can only work to make up for your past sins. Kylo rejoining the light and helping destroy the First Order would be a far better redemption than repenting when he's already about to die.
>Thee wasn't a single unique design in the entire PT
Except everyone of the droid designs you dumb nigger. And even the designs that were meant to evoke the original designs were original compared to TFA.
>Thee wasn't a single unique design in the entire PT.
Pic related. Find the equivalent in the OT movies.
>like the Naboo ships which had the smooth, shiny design of 40s/50s sci fi rather than the grungy 70s/80s sci fi style of the OT ships.
They were the ROYAL starfleet of a planet, they sit in hanger and get fucking waxed all day, I'm willing to bet most of them never saw combat before EP1.

Well, ain't Naboo supposed to be pretty much a independent faction when it comes down to it? Pretty sure they saw some sort of combat with pirates at the very least, they only really went to the republic for help because the CIS buttfucked them with pure numbers.
Man, that was such a retarded scene. Why do you need to see into space? Why isn't the command bridge located in the interior of the ship, underneath tonnes of armour? Was that the observation deck, or the actual bridge?
Pre-missile ships had an unarmoured observation deck and then a heavily armoured command bridge located at the top of the hull. The command bridge was usually the second best protected part of a warship, after the turrets and the hull.
Well, the bridge did have shields, but they lost them when that one A-Wing blew up the generator. That's why the admiral ordered forward firepower intensified.
That said, you'd think a ship that big would have a secondary bridge of some sort. Galaxy-class starships had them, and they're nowhere near as big as a Super Star Destroyer.
The better question is why a huge space ship with scanners capable of detecting things lightyears away and which's engagement ranges will invariably be hundreds of kilometres at least even need a bridge on the outside of the ship with windows.
The way they explain it in some EU wankery is that it did have a battle bridge like the aforementioned Galaxy-class but it was pulled into the Death Star 2 before control of the ship could be reestablished. It was a couple of seconds tops in the movie, in all fairness.
He was a riot control stormtrooper.
The brilliance of the scene is that JJ wanted Finn to fight a stormtrooper, so he found a way within the story and used the characters to justify it -- a random stormtrooper recognized Finn and wanted to beat the traitor into the ground. It's not much, but it's better than the prequels "hurr durr Jedi cut 'em up like butter" and absolutely zero of the lightsaber fights besides Anakin vs Obi wan are justified by the story and just exist for the sake of having a lighstaber duel
>calling anything in episode 7 genius
I like the design but they feel a bit silly as a dedicated Jedi craft. I'll buy the Jedi Starfighter but this feels a little too far. It also just looks dumb to see them sitting in the cockpits in their full robes.
>so he found a way within the story and used the characters to justify it
Why was there a "riot control storm trooper" there? It wasn't a riot, the first order was attacking rebel agents. In the previous imperial attacks we never saw anyone with this weapon. In fact, we never saw that weapon before or since, and his weapon would have been completely useless against people with blasters, which every other storm trooper and every other rebel in the fight had.
Most of the fights with light saber duels and people shooting at each others with blasters is unnecessary for the plot. This was unnecessary AND makes no sense.
>This was unnecessary AND makes no sense.
It was more of Abram's stupid rule of cool stuff. Finn was some random dude with a lightsaber, just freaking shoot him, he can't block blasters with that shit.
I liked how there was some effort made to make the stormtroopers look dangerous.
During the village raid at the start of the film, they fight furiously and wreck the villagers as you'd expect. You see them using flamethrowers, heavy weapons and working in teams.
Later when the Incan temple tavern place gets shot up you again see them working as pretty effective shock troopers. They strike hard and fast and put air superiority to good use, at least until the Resistance arrives.
TR-8R fighting Finn was great. One on one, he calls out then takes on a guy with a lightsaber and completely overpowers him. He would have killed Finn if Han didn't intervene.
However, they still don't seem to pose any threat to Han, Chewie or Rey. Han and Chewie blast them by the dozen and never seem in any real danger throughout the film. Hell, even the space gangsters managed to hit Chewie once. Rey goes from having never fired a blaster before to acing stormtroopers one after another, while standing in the open as the troopers fire back.
And for the fourth film in a row, Stormtrooper armor does jack shit. It can't even stop a shot from that little pocket pistol Han gives to Rey, what's the point of wearing it?
It's called being cheap anon. They had the opportunity to implement new spacecraft designs, but that would be too expensive.
Han the character is clearly old in the film, too. Rather than tone it down for Ford's sake, they could show how Han is getting too old for this shit. Rather than giving him plot armor and protagonist-level marksmanship skills, show him using his wits to get an unfair advantage and cover his obvious physical disadvantage. He's been getting into scrapes his entire life, it's time for us to see Han's lifetime experience of dirty tricks.
Even just throwing a thermal detonator from cover would be more suitable than just one-shotting stormtrooper after stormtrooper while firing from the hip and standing in the open.
Han probably carries blasters that pack a heavy punch because he knows he may encounter Stormtroopers and needs weapons to that can pierce it.
Modern day kevlar that soldiers wear into battle cant stop a round from an AK or M-16 but soldiers wear it because it can protect them from shrapnel from near explosions and help them survive from a 9mm. The soldier is still going down if he gets hit, he just may survive thanks to the armor. Stormtrooper armor has always operated the same way. (At least if you give a shit about a logical explanation which is mentioned in Legends. Or you can take Disney canon and say "shits and giggles")
>They're slow as balls.
That didn't stop Rogue Squadron from using Y-Wings before. It's just a cop-out.
The T-70 X-Wings are probably better in at being bombers then Y-Wings are.
Remember the reason why Y-Wings were used as bombers isnt because they are magically awesome at the job, it is because the Rebellion had an abundance of Y-Wings since they originally used them as multirole fighters before the X-Wing, when they got the X-Wing they decided to use the increased ammo count of the Y-Wing to make it a bomber.
In shot, why would the Resistance use the Y-Wing there? what advantage would it have over the T-70? They have the same weapon, X-Wing is faster, and the upgrade to the T-70 may mean the X-Wing has the same ammo size/armor
