#485573 Star Wars Movies: The J After Trevorrow

Posted by God-Emperor Thrawnie on 14 September 2017 - 08:24 AM

Did you even watch the vid though, or did you just yank it from YT because of the title? Really got to try better than that. CVH usually goes into length about the specific reasons he holds the opinion, and presents it in a way that the viewer is able to form their own, instead of adhere to his line of thinking.

 

If you'd watched the vid, despite his personal opinions, he admits that his biggest issue with Rebels it doesn't go far enough.

 

The rest of the criticisms he levels at it are sins that Avatar: The Last Airbender was guilty of. ATLA is now remembered as one of the greatest western animation shows of all time, a pioneer that is hailed responsible for the current Renaissance in American animation that has led to the likes of Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, Bojack Horseman, and Rick and Morty. And you know what? One of the biggest criticisms that can be levied at ATLA is... It's a giant Star Wars homage. How about that? Rebels has much of ATLA's alumni, so it'd make sense that it would share DNA.

 

I did watch it. I actually don't agree with everything in it, mainly the gushing over Clown Wars, but everything else lines up with my own thoughts from my attempts to watch Rebels.

 

It's fantastic that you enjoy it. Doesn't make it any less Star Wars: Kids Meal Edition.

And it's noticeable you keep referring to one GIF to pass judgement, which I feel is unfair. That's like trying shoving Ewok GIFs down someone's throat anytime they try to say 'ROTJ is actually a good movie'

Rebels is the Star Wars we need and deserve right now even though no one here will admit it.

You really need to get an ENB if you want him to look his best when you're staring at him though. That vanilla lighting isn't doing him any favors. :P
 
The one I use. Looks amazing and is actually 100% okay for general gameplay. Also doesn't have that annoying effect a lot of them have of making the game look like you're viewing it through a pane of glass.

I recently started playing Skyrim again.

'Cause it's puuuuuuurty.

(And yes, that's aaaaaaaall "old" Skyrim. The "Special Edition" looks like ass. I pity anyone who actually paid for it)

I'm going to need an EU "Tales of" story about the nine foot tall horse-faced aristocrat who turned up at the party with Lady Gaga and his great grandmother:


Somebody involved read the Wraith Squadron books, evidently. (That's a Thakwaash)

Think everyone saw this coming sooner or later waaaay back when EA first assimilated BioWare.

 

They better hope their mystery new IP does well or it's off to the farm with Westwood and Pandemic.




#484315 What Are You Currently Playing?

Posted by God-Emperor Thrawnie on 14 May 2017 - 04:43 PM

Finally picked up Stellaris. I'd been waiting for more DLC to come out to add more content, since it's a Paradox game and they have a DLC policy that would make EA jealous.
 
It's pretty cool. More than anything it finally seems to be the space 4X game I've been waiting for, which is nice after GalCiv III was such a massive letdown.
 
Also you can enslave the galaxy as a race of genocidal butterfly people, so there's that.

#484286 Fantasy Minifig Contest: RESULTS!

Posted by God-Emperor Thrawnie on 10 May 2017 - 04:28 PM

Wasn't originally going to enter but then I remembered it's a custom minfig contest and one could put an entry together in literally ten minutes, so...all y'all who aren't entering got no excuse.

 

(Thought I got all the dust off but apparently not, lol. Yeah...my Lego's been collecting quite a bit lately. :shrug: )

I will put money on the next movie opening with [Finn] in a Bacta tank, for the "hey remember this thing from the OT?" factor, if nothing else.

Looks like it's technically not a Bacta tank, but I'm still calling this a called it.

 Giant Bomb called it a "direct to video Mass Effect sequel", where the big name actors didn't want to come back so they replaced them with cheaper ones; a new Krogan, a new Turian, two new bland human characters, a new Normandy, Pathfinder instead of Inquisitor/Spectre/Grey Warden/etc.

 

I'd been trying to figure out how to articulate the vibe I'd been getting watching videos of the game, and that nails it.

I caved and preordered the deluxe edition. I regret nothing.
