  1. I recall there being some really nicely done ones in Freespace 2 where you're part of the fighter screen for various capital ships, I seem to recall there being one in the nebula that's got a great build of tension as you creep along waiting for enemy contact...

     

    Oh man now I want to play Freespace 2 again!

    @redbloodcel @pinholestar will have an idea as they both got it from spoils. 

     

    I need to do a raid tonight if you fancy it. Would also like to try the glitch to get more than 6 in before they patch it if anyone else is up for it.

     

    You get 10 for each of the "hidden" chests in the raid, per character, per week, so 20 total per raid, or if you run it again with the same character you get 5 per encounter that gives loot, which would give you 15 for a full run. 

     

    You can also farm the first encounter for unlimited per week if you have the time to invest into that, but that requires a little bit of setup.

    Well fuck me. It's all coming out now.

     

    Please don't say Lucas or Spielberg is next.

     

    There's already been rumours about Spielberg, I can't recall if anyone has gone public with anything though.

    Nobody is actually causing Whedon of anything other than being a bully I've noticed. Even Trachtenberg's comment seems deliberately ambiguous.

     

    It's been alleged that he was having affairs with people from Buffy onwards, this is another layer of alleged abusive behaviour on top of that. 

  4. Funny to see this thread pop up, as KOTOR 2 has finally been released on mobile this week! Apparently there are some initial bugs so may be best to hold off for a little bit and let those get sorted, I guess if you haven't already you could play the first one on mobile whilst you wait. ;)

    Tried this last night. Started on the ice planet too. Although I must have had a reasonable character and made it through. 
     

    can’t remember anything around the game though. Hard to navigate for a returning player. 
     

    got some “legacy mission” stuff. But no idea how to access it. 

     

    There's a little terminal to the left the Postmaster in the Tower. 

  6. Freakin' fabulous.

    After all this time we finally get to see Boba Fett being an actual badass! Such a great episode, both in itself and as a setup for the continuing story. Super stoked to see Robert Rodriguez' name at the end, he's a great director and probably one of the best people to turn to when it comes to shooting action with a super limited crew, hopefully he'll be back for more. I hear he has a buddy who's also a massive film nerd that loves Sci-fi and Westerns, wonder if he'll get dragged in for the fun too... ;)

    Yeah that seems like a bit of a mistake. Seems like they should not be in the game at all now.

     

    I used my exotic cypher on the only one I could buy. The remaining ones all require the raid currency though. You need quite a lot of it as well, so its not like you can do one raid and then get those. Seems fair enough though that raid kit is still locked behind doing raids, but means I'll never get it.

     

    They're keeping them in for a set period of time (although I thought that it was only going to be Spider who had them) so people can use them up, but it definitely seems like a mistake to have both modules in a given day only available for vaulted materials.

    I’m back into this. 
     

    What in finding is that I’m not sure what I should be doing next. I started a new character and I have a dozen or so quests in my log for different things. I can see that one seems to be the beyond light line on Europa but the others are for various different things and I’m not sure where I should be going to get the most done. 
     

    Is it best just main-line the Europa stuff? 

     

    Be sure to go and grab the seasonal artifact in the Tower right away so you can start unlocking the mods on it, and the gun mission from Banshee too so you can start progressing it, but apart from that the seasonal stuff can wait really as it only becomes important for progression once you've hit 1200 light (which the story should get you to) and need the powerful drops.

    Raid done 

     

    New cutscene when you log in - 3 new quest lines (1 exotic) and dark zones on Europa

     

    You can also unlock higher difficulty Empire Hunts, which is where you can get the new Exotic sniper Rifle Thunderlord-a-like Cloud Strike. 

     

    There's still a few more things to unlock in Varik's sabotage perks too, will be interesting to see what gives us access to those. Vault of Glass, perhaps?

    I know this isn't really the Clone Wars thread, but I've been very impressed with the quality of its visual style - so many of the action sequences are far more creative and actually easier to follow than any of the madly chaotic crap in the prequels or recent trilogy.

    Like a zero g action sequence that was genuinely cool.

     

    Although then I have to laugh when I remember that this is apparently aimed at 6 year olds and

    there's a scene where a loads of clone troopers with flame throwers burn some bug people to death :lol:

     

     

    Give this a watch when you have made your way through it:

    Tl:dr - the show really pulls no punches!

    Dark trooper?

     

    Great episode this week. Felt like proper Srar Wars, with Storm Troopers and everything. 

     

    Spoiler

    Big robot stormtroopers with jetpacks, can also be modified into an exoskeleton for someone to use I think. 

     

    Pretty sure that 

    Spoiler

    They need the child's blood, rather than DNA. It's really hard to breed a clone with the Force naturally, and for some reason if you do they go insane anyway, so artificially juicing clones with high midichlorian blood (the hologram of the doctor mentioned "M count") could be a way around that. 

     

    I wonder if it's them trying to clone The Emperor a new body, like in the old Legends storyline.

    That was a great start to the series. Loved it!

     

    As for the ending..

     

      Hide contents

    Of course that is Boba Fett! Disney know that's what everyone wants..

     

    Sure if Rian Johnson was running the show it would be unrelated bored clone placed there to subvert us  - but  I can see Disney making Boba a pretty major part of the series - especially if the rumours with Pascal are true. :)

     

     

     

    Spoiler

    A Republic clone would be a lot older as they age at an accelerated rate, so really it has to be Boba

    I haven't kept up enough to remember if elements of KOTOR are still considered canon, but as soon as I saw the ROTJ flashback scene I smiled and thought maybe they'll have fun and tie the mining operation in with a Czerka reference.

     

    Then they went all in. "Oh you enjoyed Knights of the Old Republic, here you go. Here's that bit."

     

    It's too blatant to not be a tease for the pre-covid speculation on a KOTOR trilogy of some kind.

     

    IIRC there's a ship named Revan in one of the films, could be TROS, or maybe in one of the art books.

    Could someone explain the KOTOR/Galaxies references? Been a loooong time since I played for the former, and was a FFXI player when Galaxies was a thing.

     

    Spoiler

    Don't know about Galaxies, but the main story plotline on Tatooine in KOTOR 1 is hunting a Krayt dragon, part of it being getting assistance from sand people to locate it, then using mines to kill it. Also you get a Krayt dragon pearl as a reward.

    Apologies if this has been mentioned already but did anyone else absolutely lose their shit when they found out who plays The Marshal?!! 
     

    I’m usually terrible for casting spoilers on shows I love but being a huge fan of some of his other, shall we say similar character type outings, I let out a little squeak.

     

    This fucking show!!

     

    Spoiler

    The guy playing the bartender was also Dan, Al's number 1 goon from Deadwood! 

     

    Was grinning like a loon through the whole episode. I've just finished binging the whole of Clone Wars in the past couple of weeks this evening, then went right into this! :D
