>>2495 I'd put Rogue Squadron at Knight level. Though with the "suggest a missing thing and gain a rank" bonus, you can be a Grand Master. The missing thing should be at least Knight level to qualify though. Also the idea of giving bonuses for things like this is amazingly autistic.

Anyone have the Apeiron code? I know they were supposed to destroy it but I'm sure someone didn't.
sent ;)
>hur dur hey guiz look we r making remake of [insert good game from popular franchise here] gib munny 2 help us finish it
>oh noes we got a C&D order from the IP owner sorry u no get game but we keep monni :)
I actually have no idea if the people making this were asking for money for it, but making it public that you're remaking a game is retarded. Just make the fucking thing, dump it on the internet and now the IP holder can never get rid of it.
I believe they were not asking for any gibs which makes their announcement even more retarded. Assuming they didn’t attach their names to the project (why would they?) can they not just keep making it and say “oh hey we’re another studio that took this over and totally not the same guys haha, we finished it here you go.”

Overall though just play the original, I don’t think they were adding anything and just redoing the graphics/animations. I tried to convince someone at my summer job to play KoTOR because he was a “big Star Wars fan” and said after looking it up that he thought the graphics would break his immersion and lessen the game. But he also likes soy wars so obviously he has shit opinions.
It's not the graphics that should be the issue but rather the bugs & lack of moddability..... yes I know they have many mods of Kotor but you can't really make new levels, mess with the models quickly, or create new features (as code). It was very limited in addition the games do not run well on new computers due obsolete code. In a new engine exporting models from 3dsMax to the game is quick & painless, mapping/level creation is not only possible but fairly straight forward as is coding particularly in Unreal 4. The better graphics & shades that come with a new engine are just a bonus.
>>467 Could you possibly send me the apeiron code as well?

I heard that some EU had stories of packs of CIS droids that avoided the shutdown code roaming around the outer rim. Anyone care to shed any light on this?
>>2071 Just remembered how much piece of shit Star Destroyer is when playing as Rebellion in X-wing game. You have to pilot in Y-wing that's slow as fuck and it is the only craft that able to take down star Destroyer because Y-wing is a bomber class space craft. Imagine piloting a slow shit space craft and try your best to take down Star Destroyer with heavy bomber missiles and ion laser cannon. As you get closer to Star Destroyer, all the danmaku style green lasers coming towards you. Good luck dodging that shit with Y-wing. It's one of the hardest mission ever made. Oh another one is the escort mission in tie-fighter, god damn.
>>2278 That is what you get for playing as Rebel Scum
>>2276 Not stories, but a mission in Battlefront II had a Geonosian reactivate the droid army on Mustafar and the 501st had to clean house. The Essential Guide to Warfare goes into detail of the early campaigns of the Empire to clean up Separatist remnants, many of them using droids in their armies until they were all destroyed. Jan Dodonna and Terrinald Screed are know for these offensives. Some Separatist remnants managed to survive into the Rebellion era and while Mon Mothma didn't like them because "muh atrocities" they cooperated and one notable example got a letter of marque to become proper privateers. Also some ships like the Lucrehulk and Providence class were used by the Rebellion during it's early years.
>>2276 Scavengers Guide to Droids mentions V2 Commando droids "a larger percentage of V2 droids survived the Clone Wars, owing to their effectiveness as soldiers. The droids that survived were some of most skilled combatants in the conflict. and those that have fallen in with mercenary companies can command top rates for their services." and states they're most common in the outer rim. Rogue Squadron III features some rampaging droids on Geonosis.

>>2250 >That reasoning is flawed, since neither Hitler nor Caesar orchestrated the war that allowed them to raise to power, also Palpatine is clearly a better stand in for such characters than Darth Vader, who is just an enforcer for such a person. Does it matter in-universe whether the conditions the led to Palpatine's were his doing or some matter of external force? Neither the PT or the OT are meant to be straight allegories of real world events rather than being applicable to them while still being their own thing. While the Empire had influences from Germany in WW2, in reality it is quite different and that design cue is merely one of a series of ingredients to the recipe of Star Wars. You can't even compare the Clone Wars or the GCW to the 20th century world wars anyway, as both were civil conflicts more closer to the American Civil War (the Clone Wars especially) than anything else. >Meanwhile the Clone Wars as represented by the Prequels and accompanying media fails to be Anakin's Vietnam or any other war. I could accept if they tried to make him some type of Achilles character, but the Anakin the Prequels gave us is a less cartoonishly evil version of a Joffrey Baratheon. I suggest you read the Jabiim arc of Star Wars: Republic if you want a war is hell story with Anakin at center stage. Anakin is meant to be a very troubled and flawed character, with his obsessive attachment to those he loves (his mother, Padme) leading him to be seduced by Sidious. It does not matter if he is likable as that is subjective-tier redditor swill that takes feelings as actual facts. What truly matters is that he is a CONSISTENT character and in the PT Anakin acts fairly consistent throughout. Anakin isn't "cartoonishly evil" at all, his flaws come from a very real and human place, which leads him to make a Faustian pact with Star Wars figurative devil figure. I think you are disappointed because you fell into the same trap many other Star Wars fans did and imagined Anakin as some PTSD-ridden Darth Rambo and got mad when it didn't match up to what was on-screen.
After seeing the Republic in the prequels was I the only one rooting for the Sith the entire time?
>>2260 it would be easier if the prequels could just be shifted back, but as you said, the gap of a single generation constrains this. that's why I thought of moving the clone wars further back relative to the prequel story. but then you lose other things, like the parallel between clone wars and Anakin's fall (akin to the civil war and Luke's rise), the tragedy of Padme (as you mentioned), etc. it seems like any decision you make requires sacrifices, and George's sacrifice was an insufficient interlude between III and IV.
>>2277 You mean the republic that was run by a sith chancelor?
>>2284 Sith weren't really in charge till they were elected democratically.

So in your opinion who is the biggest irritating disney shill faggot on youtube? I'd say Hello Greedo, Star wars Explained too. Their comments are full of soy-infused disneytards. Good news though is that their audience is tanking since TLJ compared to the 'fandom menace' youtubers according to this: https://disneystarwarsisdumb.wordpress.com/2018/12/28/the-decline-of-star-wars-youtube/

>>1776 Actually it seems to me like there's quite a few that make a living off shitting on nu-wars.
>>1776 Not focused, but still.
>>1776 There's Jensaraai1. He's been doing star wars videos for years and focuses on fights between different characters. He sticks with legends and hates the new stuff. Sadly his channel got hacked so he's trying to recover.
Do you think there are star wars youtubers who are trying to jump on the bandwagon by acknowledging TLJ was shit? There's this Generation Tech guy who seems to acknowledge TLJ was shit and is a human supremacist. He goes over miltiary strategies in Star Wars but he also did this one video where apparently Palpatine is a genius for the shit he did in ROS. I got mixed feelings on the guy.
>>2182 Whenever a successful strategy occurs copies tend to emerge. I'd say that case sounds like bandwagon jumping, but specifically for the earlier controversy and not the current realization that RoS is actively worse. its pretty funny that leaks showed that the scrapped pre-jew jew script at least was interesting, if another total characterization swap out again; unironically JJ is worse than just swapping directors for a trilogy twice. though disney wars basically forces that to get anything of value from most of their crap

>Disney/Lucasfilm open casting call for the upcoming 'Star Wars Untitled Trilogy: Episode I' >Walt Disney Pictures / Lucasfilm is now looking for new unknown actors to play the lead roles in the upcoming "Untitled Star Wars Trilogy: Episode I". Talented individuals from any area are being invited to perform video auditions for a number of roles, both males and females of any ethnicity. This new Star Wars trilogy is being created by Rian Johnson, who wrote and directed "Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi". Johnson is writer and director for this first film of the new Star Wars trilogy, with Ram Bergman serving as producer. Kevin Feige will serve as executive producer. This new trilogy will separate from the Skywalker saga and will explore new characters from an unexplored area of Star Wars lore. >This new Star wars trilogy is being created by Rian Johnson >Johnson is writer and director for this first film of the new Star wars trilogy, with Ram Bergman serving as producer.

>>1987 Well SWTOR is semi decent. Or at least was. As far as I remember you could buy anything on the market you could get in loot boxes from a bit of grinding and being a subscriber meant free coins to buy loot boxes anyways. However free to play does suck complete ass with the limitations. what the fuck is up with captchas? They didn’t have them last time I posted a few hours ago.

I was just thinking about how sterile the sequel trilogy has been. It's like any form of romance or adult interaction has been removed or Disneyfied. Even the Finn/Rose "romance" in The Last Jedi felt forced and cringeworthy with an utter lack of chemistry. Look at Rey especially, she is played by an attractive actress inb4 xenomorph memes but we never really see her as a woman. Even on a desert planet, she is near fully covered, as if they were scared having Rey bare any skin would send the wrong message. She never flirts with any of her male cohorts despite being a young woman trapped on a barren shitheap for decades.

I know the inevitable response for anything like this is "but it's for kids!" or "misogyny!" but Leia's slave outfit or Padme's mid-riff and the romantic sub-plots of both trilogies didn't make those films any less family friendly or weaken it's female characters. It really just seems like Disney trying to sanitise the franchise to fit their "wholesome image". The most risque they've gone so far was Qira and Han in Solo, but for a grimy underworld story it still feels very tame and safe, though Emilia Clarke admittedly did look very elegant.

I would just chalk this up to me being a cumbrain but there's a wealth of normalfags "shipping" characters, especially "Reylo". People want romance and some eye candy in their adventure movies, to the point that they will just make their own if it's not being offered. What do you guys think? Am I on to something or am I being ridiculous?

Speaking of sterile, is it just me or are Rey's breasts flatter than usual? She looks more like a dude this time around than before.
