All things Star Wars

Post by Coyote_Mao on Wed Jan 04, 2017 7:44 am

I gotta say, it's a bit odd to see a forum that has been around for a couple of years, but still lacks a Star Wars thread. Especially since recently a new movie in the franchise has been released and turned out to be as good as "Rogue One" did. Surprised
I went to watch said flick shortly before New Year's Eve and loved almost every minute of it. This is what a lot of Star Wars fans around the globe hoped the prequels trilogy and Force Awakens would be like: a look at the beloved universe from a new angle. To be honest I was afraid that Disney would try and sell us a "new generation" of Star Wars characters with this one too (like they did with episode VII), but to my surprise the main characters here were intentionally downplayed and the spotline kept on the warring factions themselves - the Empire and the Rebellion - and their ideals. As such to me the movie came across as new and refreshing, plus - it also offers the best representation of the Empire to date and especially Darth Vader: you only see him in a handful of scenes, but every time he's on screen it's the Dark Lord of the Sith at his finest. Overall Rogue One was awesome. Smile

Word. I agree, 100%. Smile

BTW, I've recently decided to give videogames streaming a try and have chosen to play a Star Wars game called "Empire at War". I'll be thankful to anyone who can provide any kind of constructive criticism, but beware: apparently YouTube found some copyrighted music in my stream, attempted to automatically remove it and as a result the audio quality... Well, it took a hit and now it kinda sucks. Plus I have a thick Eastern European accent. No hate please. Very Happy

I wouldn't call that thick. More like mellow.

Here's my first - and only - LP, which is in German. Beware, it sucks more than the Pal/Kate episodes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6skJbIgF6Q

Would you believe if I told you I filmed it with my phone balanced sideways on the top of a water bottle.

Thick, mellow... However you describe it, one thing's for sure: I can write in English way better than I can speak it. silent

Well, yeah. One can tell by the scanlines... Is that what you call them? Surprised Anyway, I take it you're into fighting games?

Bootlegs, yeah. I have a few Gameboy multicarts - in Russia of course, you have your Dendys...and tons of Famicom carts.

Mega Drive/Genesis clones and bootlegs also seem to be very popular.

Aye, "Dendys" i.e. Taiwanese copies of the NES were extremely popular here back in the day (personally I didn't own one though). But do you play anything more recent? Personally I'm a huge fan of Guilty Gears and BlazBlue series by Arc System, even though I can only play PC ports of their games. Very Happy

Started on Saints Row IV after getting it for Christmas - GTA V is just so overrated.

Oh, and I almost forgot this:




Came all the way from Piter - obviously I was utterly disappointed that the cartridge didn't fit in my MD and was made for MD clones.

I don't remember any localized versions of the games for MegaDrive back in my time... What year was this made in? Also, I don't think Saints Row is a fighting game. It's more of a sandbox shooter. Very Happy

It's a boot - the closest we can date it is 2005 as thats the year the Chinese version came out.

I didn't say I played only fighting games. Wink

Always wanted to play Dark Forces (and its sequel) but never did. It sounded very interesting to me.

(Really sorry for the delayed reply!)

Oh yeah, that Doom clone in Star Wars wrapping is kind of legendary. You can easily get it for a symbolic sum off Steam. Not sure how smoothly it runs on modern systems though... Maybe not at all. I got the game as part of the SW bundle I bought years ago, but never played it since. Surprised
