Rise of the Hutt cartel launches this week, adding some new content and stuff to The Old Republic. Unfortunately most of this content comes in the form of Hutts. Asking you, someone who’s been fighting Jedi and Sith for probably hundreds of hours, to conceive of the big fat gangster species as a legitimate threat. “Oh no! If the Hutts get the MacGuffin element they’ll be able to threaten the Republic!” Frankly, if your Galaxy Spanning government can be threatened by a bunch of gangsters that can barely move around without hovery platforms, maybe it deserves to fall. It’s clearly not that helpful.

Ackbar needs to rap more often. However, I heard him lose his Ackbar-ness a couple times during this video. But it’s time to forget about fire safety and focus on traps. Cause that’s what Ackbar is all about… traps.
Lots of dismay across the internet and world about the loss of LucasArts this week. Well, IGN made sure to make you feel worse about it by making this nostalgic romp through the decades past. I’m going to try and find a playable copy of Full Throttle. I think that was my favorite.
First it’s: “Aww, how cute. A baby with a lightsaber.”
Then it becomes: “Look out! It’s a baby with a lightsaber!”
It’s a fine line between adorable and dangerous.
Disney closed Lucasarts yesterday. That’s a bummer. Though, in all fairness, what precisely were they doing? All the best Star Wars games in the last decade were designed by other companies. Lucasarts largest contribution would seem to be saying “Hey, Bioware, make a Star Wars game. Hey, Petroglyph, make a Star Wars game. Hey, Telltale games, make a Star Wars game. And then make another. Then jam ‘em together. Then make an Indiana Jones game. Then make another. Then jam ‘em together. Then make more Star Wars. Turn ‘em into a terrible tv series.” No big loss, is what I’m saying. We can all remember the good old days when Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango came from the studio. But those days are past. I think Disney is entirely capable of handing the Star Wars license to someone and saying “Milk this,” without any sort of middleman.
That being said, We did have two games in development, Star Wars: 1313 and (I think technically never announced) Star Wars: First Assault. Those aren’t happening anymore. Sorry. Your dream of slumming around the crummier levels of Coruscant will have to wait. And your dreams of… whatever First Assault was going to be about. Also on hold. On the other hand, you could pick up Star Wars: Edge of the Empire and create your own adventures. That’ll be available soon for only… sixty dollars for the core rulebook? And it doesn’t even come with a set of dice? Balls. That game is not worth sixty bucks. Sorry I brought it up.
Star Wars may be owned by Disney, but this probably won’t be what the movie is like. I mean, they don’t literally have kids writing their movies. They write them for kids. There’s a difference. Sometimes it seems like there isn’t much of a difference. I’m looking at the Disney Channel for this one. I’ve found nothing redeemable the 4 times I’ve watched it recently. And look, a man dressed as Princess Leia, how quaint.
I just received your mashup of two movies based on a shirt you probably saw on Teefury or Ript or somewhere else. I like it. Especially finding that old guy in the control room to be your park owner. That was good. I hope you do more these.
Thanks, Internet! You’re the best.

The only unfortunate part about this video is that a couple of movie franchises get repeated, Ghostbusters and Star Wars. Also, not sure about the Wild West gun, is that Clint Eastwood? The end is a little overkill. You’ll see why.
No, this is not the best Batman impression, but it is a creative use green screen. Somehow when he tells Han Solo he loves him, it gets to me. Some moments are better than others, but if you were always wondering what Batman would be like as Dorothy in Wizard of Oz, here you go.
Analyze anything long enough and it becomes silly. Take the ending sequence from the first Star Wars movie. Add in everything we now know about these characters and it all seems fishy now. Please keep an open mind while watching this eerily put together piece of “journalism”.
