"once" and "fuckin bad" are both clearly meant in a strictly figurative sense.

I would love for some of these random games to just become 99 cent premium jobbers.

Sale looks different when you are shopping for controller games that play well on a small screen while sitting on the toilet.


I spent more on this sale than the last 10 combined.

True, I have been slowly adding a few I don't have to the wishlist but won't pull the trigger until I have my deck in hand.

This even makes Leia's excited "Ben Kenobi? Where?" response to Luke on the Death Star make so much more sense.

Not to pick on you or single this out, but this line of thinking always drives me nuts. Nobody when watching ANH was wondering why she'd be excited that the person she had sent a message to asking for help was there attempting to help.

Sure, obviously no one was thinking this.

Mostly because for the purpose of ANH it doesn't matter how well leia knew kenobi.

And also because star wars is full of moments where it appears characters must have been reading the script but the story carries you past it, so it is fine.

But that doesn't mean anything in ANH supports the assumption than Leia and Ben had definitely never met.

Ben and Leia having had an adventure together 10 years ago seems fine tbh.

Would I have tried to do to write this show without Leia? Yep. But not because of what the existing canon says. Just because the show would have more room to breathe without her.

To me, this story fits the 3 times leia refers to Kenobi much better than the continuity does without it.

She leaves a fairly formal message that you can interpret any way you like.

She reacts to Luke being here with 'Ben Kenobi' clearly having confidence he's a useful person to have when being rescued from an imperial fortress. Ben Kenobi is of course a name that Bail did not know obi wan by in the prequels.

She names her first born child after him, and specifically the 'Ben' persona.

I also think this story is only time I've ever seen star wars media even try to deal with the Vader/Anakin identity.

And Reva does a good job of making the inquisitor concept less of a pantomime, I really liked the idea of her hunting vader using the idea that jedi hunt themselves. Just a shame it lasted for less than an hour of screen time.

Nothing here felt like the retcon I feared it would be when I heard leia and vader were in it. The concepts here are fine and a good addition to the canon.


That said, I'd accept the writing is patchy, and it does suffer from too much of this story being reflections on other parts of the IP.

But this is much more ambitious than Mandalorian, and I enjoyed it more. Mandalorian tails off after exploring the premise. This wobbles at the start and gets its shit together by the end.

Finally watched it on Disney+. I'm so glad I didn't waste money on it at the movies. It was trash on a Captain Marvel level. Even Thor 2 was better. A shit ton of talent and a mediocre story.
what was wrong with captain marvel

it was basically middle of the road as far as mcu went and it was pretty fine as far as its placement went in the order

strange 2 was just a hot fucking mess that doesn't belong anywhere


This you?

And this is nowhere near Thor 2 tier. Nothing else in the MCU is that bad.



Eternals?

Symphony of War popped up in my steam recommendations (I apparently bought a rando RPGMaker game made by the same dev a decade ago), and it looked like a pretty good srpg, so picked it up. And it's, in fact, pretty damn good!

It's basically Fire Emblem x Soul Nomad x Ogre Battle (but not realtime this time, thank cthulhu): moving the leaders/hero characters on a FE grid, but each of them have their own squad with mostly-faceless NPCs of various types (that level / gain stats separately too) in customizable formations, and battles between those squads play out semi-randomly (but there are certain rules, like rogues try to hit the backline, some characters have line or column AOE attacks, etc). There are a bunch of different classes (and upgrade paths), a global tech tree, a FE-like support/relationship system, etc etc. Only thing that seems a bit light is the lack of gear for the hero characters (there are artifacts, but they're squad-wide).

I'm only a few missions in, but it feels fresh compared to the usual FE or FFT clones coming out nowadays (even if some of those are clones are p fun). Recommended unless it goes to shit in the mid-to-late game.

Oh yeah, it plays well on the steam deck too.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Thanks for the recommendation, been enjoying this. The UI is the worst part of it but the game is fun enough once you get used to that.
