  1. I'm glad SWTOR is going back to the "Empire vs Republic" angle and cannot wait to play "The war for Iokath" obviously I'm siding with the Imperials. I think the video ends abruptly but that's probably to avoid spoilers. I also have a lot of catching up to do, I'm currently on Alderaan and I'm on Chapter 1 out of 3 for the sith warrior's story but I'm taking my time, doing all of the quests and exploring the planet, it's been a really fun ride making the Sith Empire stronger day by day. I seriously need to get the KOTOR games to catch up with the lore of the Old Republic era and to know more about Darth Revan.

     

  2. 2 days ago, I finished the Star Wars The Clone Wars Legacy arc "The Crystal Crisis on Utapau" and really enjoyed the arc. It was fun, adventurous, action packed and explores a little more about Anakin's thoughts on Ashoka leaving the Jedi order and even gives us some foreshadowing for Revenge of the Sith which I thought was awesome. I decided to look up more information about the now cancelled Clone Wars show and found out that there was going to be 8 seasons in total with about 36 episodes left of the show. I found out about this information from the "Save the Clone Wars" website.  All of these episodes sound very awesome and I hope that they get adapted into a novel/comic or unfinished story reel like the rest of the "Legacy" series of episodes. I've yet to watch the "Bad Batch" arc and plan on doing so soon. For now, what do you guys think of these episodes that could've happened if the show wasn't cancelled? 

    Here's the "Save The Clone Wars"website: http://www.savetheclonewars.com/2016/02/approximatley-35-clone-wars-stories.html 

    If you wan't to watch the "Bad Batch" arc and "The Crystal Crisis on Utapau" arc, here's the link to the official Star Wars website that has aired these episodes: http://www.starwars.com/tv-shows/the-clone-wars-legacy 

    I wen't and found even more information about what the remaining TCW episodes could've been, I'd be totally fine if the rest of the show gets adapted into a comic or novel, as long the story's told. I have mixed feelings about TCW, when you add the show in the Legends time line, it's a continuity wrecking ball due to all the inconsistencies and contradictions within the show( I know that TCW was placed as T-Canon AKA television canon and that it and G-Canon take precedence over the C-Canon but it bothers me since I enjoy both interpretations of the Clone Wars and wan't both to fuse into one continuity). Thankfully, these contradictions have been ret-conned and TCW can now hopefully fit within the Legends timeline.There's also the fact that the Separatists are a joke the battle droids act like idiots and while this works for comedic effect, it makes the C.I.S. less intimidating and what they did to Grievous is just astonishing all though he and the separatists do improve as the series progresses. While at the same time, the show tells amazing stories like the Umbara arc, Darth Maul arc, Ashoka arc, Geonosis arc, Death Watch arcs, Mortis arc, Citadel arc, Order 66 arc, and the season finales for 1 and 2 that I think it balances it out. TCW has a lot of good(Amazing Arcs, characterization and plot) and a lot of bad(Very Inconsistent and some of the show's villains aren't as good as they should be), I saw the show since it's debut(while missing episodes unintentionally and intentionally) and grew with the show and learned a lot from it so it means a lot to me for that. In fact I have a good question(I think it's a good question) what problems did you guys have with TCW? Where they the same problems I had? or do you have different problem. What that being said, May the force be with you and have a good day :)

      They need to finish the Clone Wars. So many episodes left. Please disney...

    2. TheDarkShadow8500

      TheDarkShadow8500

      Yeah, I don't understand why they haven't already; they did it with Dark Disciple and Son of Dathomir so it's not impossible plus A LOT of the community would love to see more TCW which equals a lot of $$$$ so it's a win win to me. 

  3. Well in Lego Star Wars 3 I made some remarkable progress, completed all of the missions, got most of the characters, unlocked all of the rooms, purchased a decent amount of vehicles both ground and air, did several Republic Assault missions and boosted the completion percentage from 32.2% to 50.2%. It's going to take a while before I reach 100% but I shall accomplish this challenge!

      I loved those missions

    2. TheDarkShadow8500

      TheDarkShadow8500

      Yeah, the missions are surprisingly challenging, I'm stuck on the Courscant mission. Today, I freed all of the Villains in the brig(which was a nice throwback to the Clone Wars episode where Ventress and a rouge senate commando free Nute Gunray)  and completed all of the Bounty Hunter missions, some of those missions made me feel like a idiot. 

  4. Yesterday, I decided to play some Lego Star Wars 3 The Clone Wars. I played the game 2 months ago and was on the "Legacy of Terror" level, I stopped playing for some reason and decided to catch up. Now, I'm on the "Liberty of Ryloth" level and have 1 million studs! I have not built a single door as I'm still in the command bridge because I want to get everything I can before I leave the room to start unlocking. But I gotta say, I'm really surprised by how much I enjoyed playing the game so far, the humor is pretty good and the levels are not to short but not to long at the same time. I think I'm at 30% completion out of 100% so I cannot wait to get that all mighty 100% completion. If I do get the 100% completion, then that means Lego Star Wars 3 will be the first Lego game I officially complete, the closets lego games to a 100% would be Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga( Which I will replay after I finish LSW3) and Lego Batman 1 at a 80%. I wish we would just get another Lego Star Wars The Clone Wars game already, there's so much levels they could do, characters we could play as(Playing as Delta Squad and the Shadow Collective Super Commando's would be awesome) and etc. If LEGO does decide to release another Lego Clone Wars game, I will most certainly purchase it. The only major problem I've been having with the game is using the force, it feels to tight and a little clunky that at times it gets really infuriating to put the pieces together, "The Lair of Grievous" level is probably the level I got the most annoyed at because there's a segment where you and your 3 partners press the buttons and the floor falls apart and you have to use the bricks to form stairs, but due to the limited environment and the snail's pace of carrying objects, I got the objects stuck several times(granted this is probably me nitpicking more than it being a actual con). I'm going to play the game after I post this so with that being said, may the force be with you and have a great day! :)  :maul:ahsoka:r2d2 

    Also, today marks Lego Star Wars 3 The Clone Wars's 6th anniversary which was a awesome coincidence. I sincerely hope that we get another Lego Star Wars The Clone Wars game that covers seasons 3- Legacy.

      Yes, they are awesome and still give me some laughs! xD I think all my Lego Star Wars + Lord of the Rings games are at the 100% completion mark, with the exception of the original two LSW games that I got not too long ago! Replacements for my old PS2 copies!

      I would freakin' freak out if they announced another Lego Star Wars: The Clone Wars game!!!

    3. TheDarkShadow8500

      TheDarkShadow8500

      @Skyguy501 To be honest I'd be pretty excited as well!! You wanna know what I was surprised about while playing the missions? This game covers the movie and the first 2 seasons and it's missing a couple of IMO important missions like the Death Watch arc("The Mandalore Plot", "Voyage of Temptation", and "Duchess of Mandolore"), Boba fett's revenge("Death Trap", "R2 Come Home", and "Lethal Trackdown"), The admiral Trench episode "Cat and Mouse" and lastly The Talz episode "Trespass"  and @Peirce I completely agree :)

      TT makes quality Lego games. They always have. I think the weakest entry was the 3rd Batman, but i still enjoyed it. However @Skyguy501 they will make another one. Once episode 9 comes out, they will probably make a another Complete Saga game, of episodes 1-9

  5. :maulABOUT FLIPPING TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :maul Son of Dathomir was out of print for the longest of times(I KNOW THERES KINDLE) and it's Legends as well so I have to get it, I'm so glad they're reprinting the comic!!!!!!! THANK YOU I'M BUYING THIS ASAP BEFORE IT GETS OUT OF PRINT AGAIN!

      Thank you Lord Cookie, I was also wondering if Son of Dathomir and the rest of the TCW Legacy project were just canon but after looking this up, anything related to TCW'S Legacy project is also Legends material which I'm personally glad it is. Mainly because it closes out a lot of loose ends and even though for the Legends timeline we will never know what happens to these characters(I think Maul died while fighting Luke as a resurrected Hologram, that's that the wookiepedia said, crazy.) SPOILERS FOR SON OF DATHOMIR!!!!!!!!!I just glad Maul escaped alive with his Shadow Collective intact. So many stories could be told about them and and it could have expanded even more on Maul's character after having lost his family and his original purpose.

    3. Skyguy501

      Skyguy501

      However, the Lucasfilm Story Group (mainly Pablo Hidalgo and Dave Filoni) consider a lot of stuff we've got Clone Wars related (like Son of Dathomir, Dark Disciple, and the unfinished episodes) and the episode scripts that never got their chance to be aired, let alone animated, as canon.

    4. TheDarkShadow8500

      TheDarkShadow8500

      I know, it's both Legends and Canon since their based off of Episodes of TCW. Best part is, any contradictions in the Legends timeline have been ret conned due to it being Imperial Propaganda, god bless retcons.

  6. Due to the recent episode, I decided to search the Old Wounds comic( the first interpretation of what if Maul fought Obi Wan after ROTS) and found the video below. I like how in this "INFINITIES" story, Maul basically stalks Obi Wan through out the course of the prequel films and even kills Watto and the doctors on Polis Mass. I also really like how it ties with the films when it came to Obi Wan and Owen's relationship. The fight here like in Rebels also makes perfect sense, I can't really say much about due to spoiler reasons but when you see the video below and compare the story to Twin suns, you'll know what I mean.

     

  7. Got some Star Wars news for yall(I link multiple articles of the same news to see how many sites are reporting on news).

    http://www.justjared.com/2017/03/17/star-wars-could-be-phasing-out-legacy-characters-in-future-films/ 

    http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/star-wars/news/a823713/star-wars-legacy-characters-future/ 

    http://comicbook.com/starwars/2017/03/17/star-wars-future-films-legacy-characters-extended-universe/

    Guess this means that in the future, we will have Star Wars films that are completely original interesting if I say so myself. 

    A lot of fans have mixed feelings for Twin suns, some enjoyed the heck out the episode while some absolutely hate it. I enjoyed the episode, I liked the feel it had, a sense of purpose, a sense of failure and torment and it reminded me of a Samurai Jack episode. :obi:maul:ezra

      Are you really this mad over an animated show?

    3. TheDarkShadow8500

      TheDarkShadow8500

      @Sith Lord Cookie I actually not that long ago used to be just as mad as @Peirce was when I gained a proper understanding of the whole EU situation and was pretty bitter about it for a long time. But, after watching several youtubes mainly the likes of Matt Wilkins and Christopher Nelson, I finally understood the reasoning as to why the ret conned to the EU happend while at the same wanting the Expanded Universe's amazing stories to continue and or finished under the legends label of course. I'm not going to explain the whole EU movement since that isn't the point of this subject so I'm just going to say this, your'e right Lord Cookie using curse words is disrespectful and un professional. My brother taught me these things since he has a MASSIVE interest in the Medieval era all though me and my brother both curse whenever we lose in a video game, mainly saying "dam it!" and etc. I can perfectly relate to Peirce's feelings regarding this duel without spoiling it, I think it's because it's like how I felt about the EU/Canon thing, we've been with it for so long, struggling and dealing with hardships growing with it and when finally reaches it's standpoint, it arrives only to be pushed back and discontinued. In Peirce's case it's probably that we've been with Maul since the beginning of the Saga and saw him grow and have development through the course of TCW only for all of that to be "Degraded" in Rebels when that fight happened.

      Again, that's all my assumption so if that's not the case, feel free to tell me why I'm wrong. :)

      @Sith Lord Cookie Do you have a love for Darth Maul? If you do, kindly read @TheDarkShadow8500 response. He sums it up perfectly. He was degraded in the episode. That is not the Maul everyone knows. They know a fighting Maul, ferocious, cunning....

  8. I'm so tired, doing all the missions on Balmorra, fighting the resistance and the colicoids sure as hell took A LOT of time and energy. I'm done on Balmorra, I'm at the Imperial fleet level 55 and I'm going to gear up and get ready for my adventures on the armpit of the galaxy. Nar Shadda.

      What game you talking about?

    2. TheDarkShadow8500

      TheDarkShadow8500

      Star Wars The Old Republic, I've been powering through the game playing for several hours straight while listening to the Ootinicast and AngryJoe. 

  9. You're right, it is better than nothing, I do agree that the EU is better than the movies, but I believe the EU and the movies Synchronize with one another, can't have one without the other right? I enjoy watching the films, I need to purchase them soon.
  10. That's a awesome collection! I wish I had a collection like that. I still only have 6 EU books. I'll list them here The Prequel Trilogy Omnibus The Original Trilogy Omnibus The Last of the Jedi #2 Dark Warning The Rise and Fall of Darth Vader A New Hope: The Life of Luke Skywalker The Life and Legend of Obi Wan Kenobi
  11. Your welcome I sort of hope this theory happens in the future of canon because it makes a lot of sense and makes Palpatine have some sincerity in his goals of Empire and conquest. I still prefer the Expanded Universe but the canon's alright.
  12. That's actually a pretty good theory about Snoke, certainly better than Darth Jar Jar or that Mace Windu is Snoke.
  13. Ahh, don;t you love it when your in a Rouge Sith Lord's estate, and your eyes are suddenly completely dark? I do!!!! It 's why I made it my new profile picture. :P

  15. SPOILER WARNING! SPOILER WARNING! SPOILER WARNING! SPOILER WARNING! SPOILER WARNING! THIS NOT A DRILL I REPEAT SPOILER WARNING!! 

    I finally completed Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith: The Video Game on Hard difficulty for the Playsation 2. It took me around 8 hours to complete all the story mode missions, all of the Bonus missions(The General's Protectors was the most painful to do, mainly because I'm not used to playing as a magnaguard and fighting the Blaze troopers while dealing with a reprogrammed Crab droid can especially be annoying to fight!), all of the Co-op missions(with the help of my brother, they were unfortunately easier than we anticipated), unlocked all of the fighters, all stages, all of the concept art, all of the cinematic, and lastly, found all of the secrets. The last secret I needed was at level 15 Aftermath in the Temple and it was at the part where your'e in the Jedi library and have to cut open a panel to unlock the ray shields and once you do that, you go in front of the door, go behind you, use the force to lift a rock, and there, the last secret appeared. After days of trying to find out where the last one was, when I found it, I felt like a idiot face palm indeed my friends. 

    The game was very fun and engaging, my primary criticisms was that in the Story mode, various fights and moments weren't to challenging with the only challenging fights being Count Dooku, General Grievous, Cin Dralling, and Obi Wan Kenobi. Another problem I had regarding the story missions was that I felt like they could've added more levels on various points and mention important events throughout the movie. For Example, when Anakin tells Mace Windu that Palpatine is the sith lord they've been looking for, Mace and the other 3 jedi confront palpatine, but there is no boss battle here, you can't play as Mace and fight palpatine, instead they have you play as Anakin fighting against Mace Windu and it was a cool fight but I felt like they missed a good opportunity there also the Yoda fight with sidious is excluded as well(which I could see a boss between Yoda and Sidious happen, you can play as Yoda in the bonus mission Size Matter's Not so it's not to outlandish, Palpatine's play style could be interesting though). Lastly, in the story mode, it's understandable why but I felt like Padme is completely missed here with her name only being mentioned twice in the whole game and that's in the final two levels which are Friendship in Flames(the canon finale to the game) and Revenge of the Sith(The alternate ending version where Anakin kills Obi Wan and Palpatine) respectively.  

    Asides from those problems, I think that ROTS is a very awesome game and I recommend you try the game to see what you think of the game. With that being said, may the force be with you and have a great day :)
