Earlier here I wrote an article on how I was trying to build a ‘Manaroo Aces’ type list. After months of this being my primary list, I feel as if I have a final review on my experiences.
It seems that George Lucas had some ideas for episodes 7-9 and the video below discusses them.
I was not a fan of Episode 7. Rogue One I found more enjoyable to watch, but it was more of a modern action movie than a Star Wars story. Continue reading What Happened In George Lucas’ STAR WARS EPISODE VII
I came across this video and was skeptical. It would be very hard to pull off a good rap battle between these two.
I have to say, this was simply AMAZING! So well done! Lots of humour, good choice of language and references, with lots of wit. A pleasure to watch and laugh along with. Hope you enjoy it too!
Merry Christmas everyone! Nothing says holidays like Chewy singing Silent Night…
Pretty much every Star Wars fan knows who Mr. Plinkett is. If for some reason you don’t, drop what you are doing and go watch his scathing analysis of why the Prequels “SUCK HAIRY BALLS COVERED IN VOMIT” (his words not mine).
Mr. Plinkett’s videos are long mind you, and you’d be hard pressed to watch everything in one sitting. They are also interlaced with extremely morbid humour.
His latest video about Episode 7, released a few months ago, is no different. There is the same exacting analysis and unbelievably, the morbidity level of his comedy has gone from a 9 to 11! Continue reading Mr. Plinkett’s The Star Wars Awakens Review is Brilliant
There is a suspicious absence of trees in this video….
What a great job they did and doesn’t this look fun!
One thing I like about Worlds is getting to hobnob with some of the top players. However, it’s also nice to get a chance to speak with other non-playing members of the community, like the designers.
I took this opportunity to speak with the very friendly and approachable Frank Brooks, who is one of the X-Wing designers. I asked him about the state of the game and how they manage it. Continue reading Who Shot First? A Brief Interview With X-Wing Designer Frank Brooks
I had my heart set on a Blaise-Trooper list as it was all the rage. However, as most know, I don’t like to play meta. I found it very boring. I’m more of a run and gun player. Taylor Hanson suggested I try this scum list he had been toying with. Continue reading Prepare for Ground Assault – Imperial Assault Worlds Battle Report
A few weeks ago at Black Knight Games, I noticed they would soon be having a launch event for Star Wars: Destiny, another FFG Star Wars game. This one combining both deck building and dice rolling. I figured I was in a unique position: finished college, employed reasonably well for a recent grad and with tons of free time: so I could easily pick up a fresh game. Being an avid X-Wing player, and having enjoyed a couple of Imperial Assault campaigns, I figured FFG had done a good job with their Star Wars licence, so it was worth a shot. I did some research, thought it looked fun, signed up, and on Saturday, I showed up to play.
There were two decks to choose from, one centred around Kylo Ren and a stormtrooper, the other around Rey and Finn. Knowing the full extent of a stormtrooper’s power, I figured I was better off without one.
It’s an interesting time we live in. Affordable technology and the internet allows creative people that might have fallen through the cracks 40 years ago to express themselves and connect to kindred spirits across the world.
Following in the steps of the other recent, and also great, fan film Darth Maul: Apprentice, Hoshino is a film about a blind Jedi with lots of Star Wars heart in it. Continue reading Fan Film Hoshino is What Star Wars Could Be…
