You know what's fun?  Giving wookies flying lessons.

Also, one of the achievements is called "Worst dy-shift supervisor ever."  You get it for killing 12 stormtroopers as Vader in the prologue.  I loled.

So, in short, I am rather enjoying Force Unleashed so far.

KotOR 1 & 2 were good games, to bad they never made a third installment...I really enjoyed those games.

The friggin manual weighs about 1kg!


While mini Chewie waits around for his torso, Leia gives Obi-Wan an ultimatum, her hair or his life.


Bags n' bags.


Vader lives! Stormtroopers storm out! (lol)

I'm up to page 29... of 260, this thing is seriously awesome.
The guys who designed it must have been on drugs.

I know it makes me look like a massive nerdy man-child, but I'm still in awe at it's design, it has a central working elevator, and even the prison section has a trapdoor vent thingy into the garbage compactor section below, where a Lego Dianoga waits amongst Lego trash!

If you can, go hardcore, improvise and build a little bit of the Hull too out of the seperate bricks and rest it behind it.

Then pretend that chest of drawers is Aldeeran and you are blowing it up while throwing a shoe at it. What? Shoes were good stand in's in my kiddie nerd with action figuires/toy fighter days....

The Death Star, it was just a space station full of British actors



"What is it Leftenant Sebastian?"

"Oh nothing sir, it's just the Rebels. They're here."

"My God Man! Do they want tea?"

"No, I'm afraid they're after something more than that sir. I don't know what it is, but they've brought a flag!"

"DAMN! That's dash cunning of them!"

"Ah, Lord Vader!"

"Ohhhhhh, , , ,hello"

1. Faze, you are my hero. Man, I wish I were rich enough to buy crazy stuff like that! Maybe one day I can save up for a more modestly priced(but still way too freaking expensive) AT-AT.

2. I played some Wii Forced Unleashed on Friday at a friend's house. Didn't try single player, only the duel mode...but I was impressed. Perhaps I will buy this, finally ending my Lucasarts boycott. (I began boycotting them when they cancelled Sam & Max 2...but I guess I can stop now.)

3. I'm surprised by the lack of positive hype for the Clone Wars cartoon--and I blame it all on that movie which never should have seen a theatrical release.

The weekly series looks really good. My son was watching Cartoon Network the other day and they showed a preview special type thing. They showed like a four minute clip from an episode and I was blown away. The animation is incredible(better than the movie...or maybe it just looks better since it's on a smaller screen), and the writing seems much improved.

The US series premiere is Friday at 9pm on Cartoon Network. They will be showing two episodes. Watch them--and if they suck, I will apologize and then you will never hear me prematurely hype anything up again.

Don't worry Fishy, I'll keep the boycott up for you.

Until LA releases a Star Wars game of quality not set during or after the prequal games, My money stays in my wallet.

I miss those OT style games a lot as you guys already know frown.

They are obviously going to do some post Prequal pre OT games set with Jedi on the Run now, The Force Unleashed was the first one.

Maybe he means he will only buy KOTOR-era games. Although that might still count as "prequel" since it still technically precedes the OT.

I don't know, though. If there's Star Destroyers and TIE fighters, then it's OT enough to me. I don't care where a game falls on a fictional timeline as long as it has all the cool spaceships that I want to see.

The perfect Star Wars game to me would be a RPG like KOTOR, but set in the OT between the last two films where you can either join in on the GCW or remain neutral.

Or a remake of the X-Wing/TIE Fighter games. My defination of Prequal games pretty much means just the Prequal era stuff. KOTOR stuff is quite decent and is in a different category of its own. I'd get KOTOR 3, perhaps the only game worth breaking my boycott.

Lord Vader, the Death Star construction is proceeding as planned, but we've had some slight holdups, last night we had pizza and it made our fingers greasy so the blocks kept slipping, delaying the building slightly.
And would like to renew my request for more men, a single Irishman simply can't build it in time or the Emporors sched...*gakk graaaachchchchch* *dies*

I'll watch them, and I'm pretty sure I'll even enjoy them, but I have to question the wisdom of giving Anakin a spunky girl Jedi sidekick when we know the Jedi are all going to die soon.

Alternatively, the EU has demonstrated several times that a secondary character Jedi can survive the purge if they're popular enough.

I can't remember the name of the Jedi bloke, but he was the one shot off the AT-AT's predessecor and survived to give us quite a few EU comics.

He was on Boz Piety, he's mentioned in ROTS funnily enough. Also, the amount of Jedi that survived the whole thing is actually quite hilarious.

@David: Well, several survied Order 66 initially, such as Quinlan Vos, Dass Jennir, Kai Justiss, Olee Starstone, and have not been heard of since, really. A few more survived for several years only to be hunted down later, such as The Dark Woman, Shaak Ti, Qu Rahn, Kazdan Paratus, Eechu Shen-Jon etc.

Several became agents of the Empire, and a few more survived post ROTJ, mostly in hiding (Empatojayos Brand, Corwin Shelway, Callista {sort of} ) . As of 130 years post ROTJ, there are at least 3 Purge surivors hanging around, T'ra Saa, K'Kruck, and A'Sharad Hett. Hett's a Sith Lord now, though.

Wow, that's really quite a few.  The only one whose name I recognize is Shaak Ti, and I only know who she is because she and two other Jedi spent an entire episode of that Clone Wars cartoon running for their lives from a lightsaber-weilding Bender.

I suppose with that many survivors running around one more won't matter.  In any case, I'm sure it's not an issue that will ever be adressed in the context of this series.

I liked it better when Luke was the last remaining Jedi after Ben and Yoda died, but whatever.

Eh, at the time, Luke was more-or-less the only Jedi on duty. Everyone else was hiding and hoping Vader et al wouldn't come and stomp their ass.

The best thing about the 3D cartoon series is that it will have the Y-Wing (at least the inmediate predecessor of it if we trust LF )



As ussual same with the 2D clone wars series 5m with the series fits more with the SW continuity than 360m of movies.. i renember when 1st clone wars was out.. they showed for first time Anakin Skywalker as a grown up top gun starfighter pilot ..wich was the first think we knew about Anakin in ANH..
the second series made Kenoby a General and Skywalker a Commander, wich fitted also with the same first information we knew about Kenoby (Leia calls him General Kenoby ..not master Kenoby..wich is curious because even in the end of Ep3 when clone wars are over and the republic is no more , BailOrgana calls Kenoby and Yoda "Master" and not General as 20 years later when he sends her "daughter" searching for Kenoby. Second series also saw Anakin made a full Jedi Knight (wich it was what Anakin should have been since ep1, a 20years old knight or about to be knight and not a 10 year old brat) and showed hell more friendship and partnership between Skywalker and Kenoby..

I expect the KOTOR MMO and KOTOR 3 will be different games. You can't tell a proper story with MMO's, you have to stretch the content out a little.

I guess a KOTOR MMO wouldn't be a bad thing, just as long as it, and Galaxies, are exhiled from continuity...
