Aight. So I didn't mention it much here, but now it's over.... AND SEASON 2. HECK YEAH.




The Tennessee Wonder Child did it. He made the biggest hit of the year.


Here's him baring his soul for the end of Season 1. (Bring tissues)

I haven't even thought to put the RDR2 trailer here the past couple of days, been pre-occupied.


Man, I can't not be enthusiastic about that game. Like yeah, there was all that scummy stuff T2/R* was pulling with GTA Online. That hasn't stopped being a thing. And there's logic to thinking that they'd hurt RDR2's singleplayer to make something similar for its MP.


But I don't think that's gonna happen here. Like at all. Let the MP be what it'll be. This SP looks like it's gonna be another R* great.

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.

So you guys wanna talk about something that isn't Star Wars or Marvel for a bit?


Here's a new animated show that just started, and it's already pretty great 3 episodes in.


It's a old school YT content creators' big break, called Final Space. Has the hangings of a comedy, but it's telling a pretty dramatic story.


(1:00 in to skip Olan's intro)


Anyone interested?

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.




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.

Speaking of delays, did anyone actually think RDR2 was gonna make it for a springtime release?


Hope you didn't bet on that since it's actually coming on October 26th.

Look. Take this with a grain of salt because it's rumor milling, but...uh...


Seems like Microsoft might be mulling it's Exclusives problem...to the tune of Buying PUBG, EA and Valve.


Let me repeat that. If the rumors are true, Microsoft is going to attempt to buy EA and Valve.


Oh, and I guess PUBG as well. But whatever.

Season 2! Let's do this. Seems like this season will be covering Books 5-9 (Austere Academy, Ersatz Elevator, Vile Village, Hostile Hospital, and Carnivorous Carnival)


So unless they decide to seriously back pad the end game, that means Season 3 will be enough to cover the whole series, clocking in with Books 10-13
