You know, I think the Jango era Clones and stuff from the prequals are growing on me.

Also, Pheonix Rising for Empire at War is almost ready for their first release. I've been waiting for a proper in depth Galactic Civil War mod for that game. Also, K-Wing! K-WWWWIIIINNG!

Ah. This is some strange new usage of the word "Yes" with which I was previously unfamiliar.

I think a more fitting word would be NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! but that's just me.

It's only chance is if they include "Empire on Ice".

Oh neat. A musical. Just what we need, more camp stuff!

Also, My own little post ROTJ EU timeline for all you lazy nerds outhere.

Battle of Endor--->Asshole Lizard Alien Invasion--->Grand Admiral Thrawn wrecks some shit up--->Han and Leia finally get married and pump out some kids--->Imperial Civil War and X-Wing Book Stuff--->New Republic formed--->Death Seed Plauge Crap--->Emperor Palpatines Clones gets his groove back and then he dies hilariously twice over--->Another asshat alien fleet causes shit to go down--->Luke kick starts Jedi order again--->Lando looks for TREASURE!--->Solo Twin's Whackey Adventures--->Vong Genocide Party!--->Thrawn is alive again...or is he?--->Asshole Insect Aliens causing trouble--->Jacen Solo loses his shit and kills a bunch of guys--->Geriatric Han adventures!

Bonus points if you can remember the name of the books and arcs where this all happened.

Correct, the Han Solo Trilogy follows the Thrawn one too. Keep guessing people smile.

Now that you say it the meaning of "he aparently translates to books his penis size" now results hilarious..

Ok..should i say "literature"... or in the case of Kevin Anderson "crappy printed thing"

Why should you care about the guy who writes it though? I mean, elderly Lucas is the mega douche bag of them all.

I like Dark Empire dammit.

Also, Joy! The SWGemu devs are going to launch their first server Suncrusher soon as the client is pretty must done. If you have a copy of SWG now is the time to dust it off and wait.

Anderson also created Daala, a complete bimbo who managed to get to the rank of admiral because she let Tarkin slam his wrinkly balls into her chin.

Total idiot.

Maybe some of you already know that KOTOR 3 will be an MMORPG game named (Star Wars: The Old Republic) here's a video documentary from BioWare:

Did you watch them straight through, episodes one through six? Or did you start with the orignal trilogy and then watch the prequels?

It's cool to see an opinion that's not filtered by any kind of nostalgic bias*. The prequels are good movies, overall. I still can't believe the amount of internet hate they get.

[* editing to clarify that I didn't mean to say that only prequel haters are biased with nostalgia. I am included in the "nostalgic bias" group myself. It's hard to say how I would react if I were watching the prequels for the first time, as my first Star Wars experience.]

I couldnt.. i downloaded once and deleted .. i wasnt even able to watch it fastforwarding because i tried and then some fairies apeared and then i was out..

Usually im very critic with myself.. but im sure for once that my dislike of the new movies is non related to nostalgia.. I liked a lot the old movies (specially TESB and ROTJ) .. they were good hystories of good vs evil.. not too complex but not too silly .. the sets ..the ships.. the characters.. the ambient (darkness in TESB , that feeling of final battle in ROTJ)..but the new movies... all 100% digital sets.. dull plot.. blatant silliness.. hell more child oriented..

Actually the thing i hate more in the old trilogy was the Ewoks..  it could be a perfect final confrontation if it had not silly teddy bears doing the morom with jet bijes and killing storm tropers with stones when they actually wear full armours suposed to wistand even some blaster discharges ..

I could go on and on .i could go on how stupid is the whole Geonosis scenes in ep2, the pointless pod race in ep1.. or the "fall to dark side" of ep3.. but im tired of that..
I wil concede that actually i like the space battle of ep1, the Obi Wan scenes of ep2 are great (talking with Dex , Jango and Dooku) and except for the "fall" scene i actually like ep3..tought is rushed.. the new trilogy should had started with ep2 ..ep1 was pointless and a whole waste of time..

And for the new clone wars series.. i like it.. seriously.. for now its more than ok.. its good.. they do things star wars like.. i feel more SW watching it that the movies with thr new series.. like for example

I watched the second half of the holiday special, bull bull and more bull, not like I watched it intently. Just had it on in the background while discussing it with Tweek.

That's exactly the way I see it. Damn Ewoks. The only Geonosis thing that was any good were the establishing shots of the battle.

As far as Clone Wars goes I like it but it would be better if it weren't for Ahsoka and the animation style which I still find strange. I'm really looking forward to the liva action series next year though.

The news of that have been around since 2004 tongue. And to quote Tim from Spaced, Jar Jar makes the Ewoks look like fucking shaft. I do like some of the stuff and concepts from the prequals (The Clones have especially grown on me, except the post Prequal role they play) aside from Jar Jar, angsty teen Hayden and the rubbish attempts at drama, romance, comedy and politics.

As for the Clone Wars, I'm happy with the first cartoons and I really haven't gotten into the 3D stuff. Quite frankly I think it is time to focus on post prequal early OT stuff now anyways.

Oh, and I've seen the Holiday Special. Three times! Watch it all. BRING IT ON!

I started with the prequels and made my way to the original trilogy. Don't get me wrong, I love the original series, but I find myself leaning more toward the prequels. I liked the stories more & watching Anakin move over to the dark side. Plus I love Ewan McGregor. ♥!
