#62806 The Last Jedi SPOILER DISCUSSION

Posted by Haveayap on 09 February 2018 - 02:56 AM

I have to apologize for backing the racist/sexist/bigot media narrative from earlier. The media certainly does do that, but in reference to Star Wars, I think I am conflating specific interviews/interactions/comments, and building up an image in my mind of TLJ champions strawmanning the reasoning of TLJ detractors as frivolous, hypocritical, nonsensical and mean-spirited. Of course I hate when racist/sexist/bigot/homophobe is thrown around lightly, and yet here I am doing it myself!
"For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do." (Sorry Hassat, we have to cancel our short-lived social club).
 
I do remember reading an article very early on that specifically blamed the low fan rating of TLJ on RT as a "directed hate campaign" or "hacking the system", which attempted to erase any legitimate criticisms people have had. That may have been where this originated, but I should have known from the get go that even giving in to that would eat me up. I see Mutilator mentioned some of those above. 

 

I guess what I'm saying is, I regret and ask for forgiveness for any contributions I've made to aggravating this situation.

I just want to talk Star Wars, man! I don't mind disagreements, but I guess I'd rather try to find things we have in common rather than keep stoking the Disney Star Wars flames!

Some people act like there were no lead women or people of colour in the SW films before disney took over lol. They obviously forgot about Leia, Padme, Mace Windu, Lando.

 

 

This makes me curious. Can you give an example? I've been keeping up with Canon for the last 1,5 years now through YouTube (It's really hard to get comics where I live and I simply can't keep with reading the novels) and couldn't spot any major contradictions. The only thing I thought was wierd is how the whole "Poe is hothead and needs to learn" arc was already done in the Poe Dameron comic, but I guess that's because TLJ was already written before TFA came into cinemas and the comic was written. 

 

 

As someone who has most of the Disney released content, there are a lot of contradictions between themes and ideas that have been created in the Disney verse and the last Jedi. One example is that Poe Damions parents were rebel pilots which is why he's loyal to the resistance/rebellion, yet RJ completely disregards this when he makes Amilyn (who is portrayed quite differently to the other content she has appeared in) believe that Poe is a traitor even though she would have known his parents... like WOW...

so disliking TLJ because it was a bad film with bad writing, unnecessary stories being told, bad jokes makes me toxic? Mmkay

 

That's such a childish point of view




#62712 Game of Thrones ShowRunners to produce Star Wars Trilogy

Posted by Haveayap on 07 February 2018 - 12:06 AM

This will sound harsh but since the tv show has passed the books. The quality of the writing has gone down hill. They arent bad writers but judging from the last two seasons of g.o.t. im not too sure they are the best candidates for the job. Im sure they will do much better than rj though


#62670 TSLRCM 1.8.6 - A "what if" thread

Posted by Haveayap on 05 February 2018 - 04:52 AM

Jcarters minor fixes deserve to be included tbh (I'm pretty sure some of them are already included in it). Most of these 'small' fixes really do add to the overall quality of the game. I know this mod is normally the second mod I install after TSLRCM due to the fixes included.

And I'd also recommend Jcarters supermodel fix. this particular bug has always irritated me

#62327 Peragus Update

Posted by Haveayap on 18 January 2018 - 08:31 PM

I don't know what the "proper" thing to do would be on Peragus. I have toyed with a Griff cameo on Peragus, but I really didn't like messing with the mood there.

More variety in the droids that attack would be nice, but then why are there droids that aren't miners there...

Adding another living human NPC is problematic in multiple ways.


The Griff idea could work. Have him seal himself of in some part of Peragus hiding. It could work. Also. You could introduce more droids after the Harbinger docks.




#61585 The Last Jedi SPOILER DISCUSSION

Posted by Haveayap on 25 December 2017 - 10:51 PM

Ok, kid, I have one question for ya, before I take your SW Fan Card and rip it into confetti...

How old are you? I went to see ANH as a 5 year old at a drive-in theatre in 1977. The prequels are a mile better than any of the Disney Wars movies. Lol at your mother's milk loving baby hands taking my SW Fan Card.

TBH that's a little harsh. the SW movies have never been perfect. The OT, PT and Disneys movies + trilogies all have their ups and downs. Admittingly I am not too fond of Disneys work thus far. they lack that special touch that GL added to them and all 3 of them borderline feel like they are set in another galaxy

This is amazing. hopefully it has something to do with the old republic




#60375 Any Chance to Fix These "Plot Holes" in the next versions of TSLRCM?

Posted by Haveayap on 02 November 2017 - 05:22 PM

I played Kotor 2 for the first time. Fortunately, I used this mod that restored lots of cutscenes that were cut. (Especially in Malachor V that lots of cutscenes were cut by Obsidian)

 

But there were 2 weird parts in the story (even with using TSLRCM) :

 

1. Bao-Dur suddenly disappears without any explanation !!! 

 

I didn't know where he went!  Maybe this was due to the fact that I didn't find all of HK-47's parts.

From what I read he was supposed to die in Telos IV when invading the droid factory, which got cut to reaching the deadline .(And from what I heard there is also no voices or anything about his demise which makes restoring it difficult.) 

 

I think that it isn't a bad idea to add a dialogue between the Exile and a NPC on Telos IV (before invading the Ravager ) that tells the player about Bao-Dur's fate. This at least makes it less confusing for the players that play Kotor 2 for the first time .

 

2. Handmaiden teleports to Telos IV without any ship .

 

I read somewhere that due to the fact that she thinks that the Exile is dead, she takes the Ebon Hawk with her. Then the Exile is supposed to find a new transport ship to there. (Which got cut.)

 

I think that you can easily make party members lying down on the hangar where Ebon Hawk was - and now it isn't - and then T3 tells you that Ebon Hawk is stolen. (Since Atton won't tell you that and T3 doesn't need voice acting).

 

And then Exile has to find a new way to get to Telos IV. (Maybe doing some quest for a merchant or paying him money?)

#1 isnt a plot hole. Its just never explained :/

#60104 EA shuts down Visceral. Their Star Wars game to be revamped.

Posted by Haveayap on 28 October 2017 - 09:23 PM

1. At least the flying sections are better than the previous Battlefront by DICE.

2. To think that Call of Duty, of all games, would eschew the regenerating health (in the singleplayer, at least), while Battlefront II keeps it. I'll let the lack of ammo in favor of energy overheating so I can have UNLIMITED POWER!!!

3. You mean the Batman: Arkham games right?

probably have to pay $25 to fly LOL




#59934 KOTOR Comes to Xbox One X

Posted by Haveayap on 24 October 2017 - 07:30 AM

Not worth it IMO, the PC version has long since surpassed its console counterpart; the breadth of mods alone should convince anyone of that. Nevertheless, it's a nice gesture all the same.

Agreed. 




#59741 Star Wars Battlefront II (Battlefront 2017 threads merged)

Posted by Haveayap on 12 October 2017 - 07:34 PM

Not sure if any one else has heard about this but the only way to unlock items is through buying loot boxes. You have to pay to progress.

I have cancelled my pre-order of the game and given them very explicit reasons why. I am not forking out 60 dollars than paying another $100 to progress through the game. EA took overwatchs idea and took it to an extreme. Thanks but no thanks

Just when I thought nothing could be worse than those stupid micro transactions... EA finds a way. Great way to ruin a decent game >(


#59712 Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Posted by Haveayap on 11 October 2017 - 09:14 PM

I agree. I hated tfa. Honestly, tfa and r1 are the first two sw movies I just cannot watch the whole through when I feel like binge watching sw.
I have noticed however that many more people are starting to realise that tfa isnt as great as it was when it first came out. And if tlj turns out the same way. Do not be surprised if these movies are criticised like the pt in the future. I mean it wasnt until after aotc that people started digging into TPM aswell

Thought some people would like to hear they had a patch on steam today. Multiplayer is available again

 




#57743 Net Neutrality

As I'm not too aware of this topic, I can't really comment any further with any authority. But, just playing devil's advocate here, if you are using the infrasturcture of an ISP, who are you to dictate how they do or don't use it?

We pay for the service


#57715 Net Neutrality

Posted by Haveayap on 11 July 2017 - 05:01 PM

Tbh. This just sounds like another capitalist idea that will end badly for users of the internet. If you are paying for the internet, you shouldn't than have to pay again imo. (Especially considering USA internet prices are already some of the highest in the world and the quality of the service is crap compared to other countries internet services). Although this is not being debated in my country so really, my opinion is unimportant anyway.
