I've been playing Stardew Valley all week. Wait, week? I've been playing it that much?

 

God, this game is addictive.

I am *very* excited for Bethesda's E3 conference. I know it's cool to drop turds on the main studios' doorstep, but as a publisher, they've got one of the best stables around between Wolfenstein, Doom, Dishonored, Prey, etc.

 

We definitely know Prey stuff is gonna be there, but I'm gonna be that guy and make the call.

 

DOOM SEQUEL, ID. 2019. MAKE THE DREAM HAPPEN.

It's over.

 

Rebels nailed its landing, and has taken it's (and TCW by extension) rightful place as the true Prequels.

The upgrade to the original Forza Horizon is insane. It honestly doesn't look much worse than the current Forza Horizon 3.

 

'Straya's fun and all, but I think it's time to go back to Colorado 2012.

Shows get to me when you can see the ending coming. These last few episodes have been wearing that knowing bittersweetness on their sleeves, everything's coming to an end for these characters, but how I cannot say for sure at this point. But I know it'll be OK.

 

Half of everyone else might be sitting over in that other thread debating TLJ's quality until the end of existence, or if Disney has done right by the IP.

 

As far as I'm concerned, Disney is irrelevant to this discussion. Because Star Wars is in Dave Filoni's hands.

These 4 episodes that have lead up to the upcoming end have cemented to me what I had already suspected myself of feeling midway through Season 2. Rebels (and by extension, TCW, but of the 2, Rebels is in higher standing overall) is simply the finest thing to come out of this franchise since the 70s. Nothing in the middling decades can match the OT or Rebels.

 

Spoiler

 

Filoni's at the wheel of *everything* that isn't the Sequel Trilogy right now. And I've got complete faith in where he's wanting to go for now. His story has beaten and broken my heart in ways that those sequel movies only wish they could do. And I thanked them for the pleasure.

It's honestly a bit unfair that it's Star Wars, because I'm quite ready and willing to put Rebels up there with Avatar: The Last Airbender as some of the finest storytelling every put to long-form animation.

 

So thank you Filoni and co, for bringing us my all-time favorite Star Wars thing, and honestly one of my all time favorite shows, period. It's gonna be a hell of a feat to top this.

Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus, Hera Syndulla, Sabine Wren, Zeb Orrelios (and Chopper too!) have all earned their spots as beloved characters.

And thank you Kevin and Sean Kiner, for being the John Williams of TV. SW's legacy of phenomenal music does not exclude your work by any means

 

 

 

Come Monday, it's all over.
