In Topic: KOTOR Comes to Xbox One X

Kotor II without TSLRCM + community fixes? Nah, no thanks.

I wish Obsidian would (or could because i'm sure they want to) do the same thing Piranha Bytes and Nordic Games did for the Gothic Collection: They included the Community Patch, which makes Gothic 3 playable, with their re-release as part of the games installation ! Obviously Obsidian is in a different spot than Piranha Bytes so a Kotor 2 re-release with TSLRCM on Xbone X is just a fever dream.


In Topic: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

I respectfully disagree. Heir to the Empire is almost entirely from the perspective of the new Empire and Luke being abandoned alone on a dangerous mission. He never gathers a crew nor ends up on the Chimera (Thrawn's flagship) to rescue anyone. The New Empire doesn't even rely on Superweapons but rather on secrecy and superior maneuvering. The New Republic only wins because of dumb luck (Leia not being discovered by Thrawn and his misinterpretation when he finds out she was there) and because Luke saves another super powerful force user who may or may not be more powerful than himself.

The Thrawn Trilogy had an entirely different tone with large space battles and technology its biggest ties to even being a Star Wars series.

While I would love for them to be adapted as the New Trilogy, IMHO Disney has made it clear that the sort of exposition and characterization from Zahn's writing would be far too complex for their far more polarized view of character and story.

I'd argue that many people who know the story would be unhappy with the adaption or say that Disney is just making money of Zahn's works because their story team can't come up with something of  their own or whatever. The Thrawn Trillogy just wouldn't be good start for this new generation of Star Wars movies.

Maybe we'll see a movie about it if Legends Nostalgia becomes profitable ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Either the Timothy Zahn novels or the Dark Empire comic books would have been good for post Return of the Jedi movies.

Then people would say the movies suck because they wouldn't be original. we would already know what happens. It would be the same thing we have now with Episode 7 where people say it's too much like ANH. And Dark Empire would be even worse because a lot of people don't even like the comic for ressurecting Palpatine, making Anakins sacrifice in ROTJ almost worthless.

 

I think you can't fault JJ Abrams for playing it so safe with TFA as much as some people do if you consider the backlash the Prequels got. Disney was probably also breathing down his neck because they spend 3.5 Million Dollar on this franchise and want to see profit.

Yay. Let's disavow the EU, then bastardize the crap out of it and re-release it as something new and original!

<shudders>

Disney sucks.

I don't really get what this has to do with Episode 8 lol
 
I think the trailer was cut just be misleading, especially the moments when Kylo is about to blow up a resistence ship and the end with Rey and Kylo. It still had a lot of shots that made me very exited for the movie.

In Topic: Favorite Star Wars Film

1. Empire Strikes Back - I guess why has been said before enough. If Episode 8 will be as good as it sounds it will replace ESRB.

2. A New Hope - Only the sequel beats the original 

3. Return of the Jedi - A lot of lost potential but still pretty good

4. The Force Awakens - JJ Abrams played it safe with this one and I can get why. Still a good setup for the new Trillogy. Also the first Star Wars movie I saw in a Cinema so it's special to me.

5. Rogue One - I liked the darker tone and blurred morals. The reshoots are sometimes too obvious tho. 

6. Revenge of the Sith - Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it birthed some nice memes

7. Phantom Menace -  At least it doesn't have Hayden Christiansan ?

8. Attack of the Clones -  I hate sand.
