>>1689 It was fucking annoying is what it was. Loud cacophony with ugly CGI.
there are some changes I like in theory, and others I don't. but my biggest problem with all Specialized changes is how they clash with the original aesthetic. the OT has an unmistakable late 70s/early 80s feel; adding 90s CGI on top of that inevitably comes off garish and wrong.

I only liked this because of Oola

So... has anyone here ever tried making wookiee cookies? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5X-O_mn4aS8
Happy life day. I heard Jedi Fallen Order is actually good, I'm still not giving EA my monies. Just funny that EA is doing a better job at giving a SW story than disney.
>>1295 It was fine but the ending sucked, the characters except the inquisitor chicks are ugly as hell and game has Ilum destroyed and turned into Starkiller from The Force Awakens.
>>1298 > the characters except the inquisitor chicks are ugly as hell I noticed that, characters who are not aliens or have a mask on seems to suffer from weird CGI shiny pores syndrome and Oblivion grade potato faces.
>>1305 The wookiees are also ugly too. Their hair isn't even properly textured. Makes them look like they're made of wood with freaky eyes.

$374m worldwide, only $176m domestically, for their opening weekend. Not good for them.
We live in a year where a Godzilla movie did better at the box office than a Star Wars movie

Star Wars IX Stormtrooper 12/13/2019 (Fri) 20:05:11 No.679 [Reply] [Last]
So it looks like the plot for IX was leaked on multiple sites and a lot of it was confirmed in recent trailers and a Burger King ad. There's currently a meltdown going on at Plebbit. There's a whole lot of negative reactions and social media insanity going on because of IX. I also just found out that even if the movie doesn't flop, Disney won't be able to recover their losses from this quarter which are currently near the bottom line. Discuss? How fucked is Disney's abomination?

I saw a few episodes of That 70s Show where Eric becomes a Star Wars fanboy after seeing it in 1977. One thing I found interesting was, when talking about Star Wars with his father, Eric refers to Darth Vader as a Sith Lord. Where might he have learned this term back in 1977? I don't recall the mainline movies ever using the term in the theatrical cuts, and the first time I ever heard it mentioned was in the Phantom Menace. Did he read some expanded universe material? Was there any published Star Wars work in the 70s that mentioned the Sith? All the expanded universe material I know from back then mentions "Dark Jedi" but not the Sith. Was this just an oversight by the writers of That 70s Show?
1 post omitted.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was just an oversight since That 70's Show was written by people who knew of SW as it was in the 90's and 00's, not the 70's.

>>1193 Even worse was Eric's collection of Star Wars toys. This is in 1978 and he somehow has a Yoda and Palpatine figure. Was Eric a time traveler? Did he break into George Lucas' mansion and steal them not knowing what they were? >>1207 It kind of sucks, because Eric's entire Star Wars dream sequence is clearly from the perspective of someone who's only seen the first movie. A love triangle between Luke, Leia, and Darth Vader is not something anyone would imagine after Empire Strikes Back unless they had an incest fetish. So you can tell they at least tried, but fell short with some small oversights. Ultimately forgivable, but still needs to be nitpicked.
>>1193 The show had a lot of inconsistencies. Most episodes even had him knowing or owning shit that shouldn't even exist yet, and it wasn't just exclusive to SW.
I was honestly never that fond of the show. Unlike Happy Days it seemed to be too self-aware and often came across as too much parody. Parody is fine, but having the characters believe in the setting they exist in would be nice. But none of it really matters considering how awful the final seasons were.
>>1224 >But none of it really matters considering how awful the final seasons were. Was there more than one season after Eric "left?"

What did he mean by this??
>>1137 Gotta love how the OT and even the Prequels are immediately recognizable based on their posters, and yet TFA and IX are virtually indistinguishable and look entirely generic.

So Snoke's a pedo? And has a creepier relationship with Adam Driver's awful character than Palpatine did with Anakin? So what's Disney trying to tell us here? Why is this ugly loser dressed like a woman?

That is a hotel room for him and his wife. Take note of the two beds.
How ugly and desperate would a woman have to be to be willing to marry the personification of soy?
Beats me. They probably don't spend much time "together."
Let's be real here. They've probably never spend any time "together." That's what her boyfriends are for.

Infinity Cup Stormtrooper 11/10/2019 (Sun) 02:40:36 No.385 [Reply]

As that one anon that's been working on the Infinity Cup for all this time, I feel like the boards that were set to participate deserve a bit better than radio silence. For those that aren't caught up or need a quick rundown:
>The Infinity Cup is a virtual soccer(football[divegrass]) tournament, with its roots dating back to the earliest days of 8chan
>It takes place in Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), a virtual soccer franchise from Konami
>I took on the responsibility of organizing the 5th iteration of the Cup back at the beginning of this year
>Over months, I learned how to mod PES to put in each board's respective team and run simulated games between them
>Using pre-existing guides (many not in English) I also learned how to mod the game from an aesthetic and quality of life standpoint, including crowds, referees, stadiums, balls, and even rudimentary player models
>24 boards agreed to participate, and the Cup was scheduled to begin August 9th
>On August 4th/5th, we received word that 8chan was losing its host, the site went down relatively shortly after
>With no site and no functioning central hub, the Cup was postponed.
>I disappear for about a month
>I return in October
>We still don't have a site, but we do have a webring.
>You are here.
The whole point of this is to see if anyone still cares at this point. There was hype for the Cup. Yes, some boards cared much more than others but there 24 willing boards and we had the resources to run the Cup. I put in probably far more work on my own than any sane person should have, so I don't want this all to go to waste. That being said though, if we set a date, gather the required parties, and begin streaming the Cup and 6 people show up, I'd rather just not do it at all. I'm going around posting this on every participant board that's here on the webring and I'll try to get this up on 8kun somehow. In the meantime just post in here so I can get a sense of interest from you.
