Solo may not have performed as expected, but is it really a failure? I mean, it’s at the 10th place in the 2018 box office…
I slept in the Hotel Sidi Driss in Tunisia in the early nineties, so I guess I have been to Tatooine and was invited by the Lars’ ? 😃
There’s no season pass for Battlefront II, all new content is free for all players, except for cosmetic items like skins that you can buy with real money or in-game money.
It seems that only the maps for the smaller online modes are available offline.
Unlocking is based solely on your progress playing the game, and credits earned after each match.
Everything is already fully unlocked when you play offline.
Multiplayer is very competitive I’m afraid, but even if I die a lot I found it far more enjoyable than offline play. (Offline play is a good training ground)
There’s a campaign in Battlefront II, somewhat easy and rather short, but with a quite enjoyable story, and a new interesting character.

“Vivent les rois” is the grammatically correct form. But “Vive les rois” is more commonly used, and is accepted I think. The expression come originally from “Que vivent les rois”, litteraly “Let the kings live”, the french expression being the equivalent of “Long live the king(s)”, but its shorter form “Vive les rois” is now more understood as “Hooray for the kings”, hence the singular “Vive” instead of the plural “Vivent” for the verb “Vivre” (to live).
Mobile games are the new fun ‘pick up and play’ games… (and there’s a few Star Wars ones)
Didn’t they recomposited the effects because the film stock used originally for the final composites was degrading rapidly ? And was already in such a bad shape that it was deemed unusable at that time ?
Re-rendering 20+ years old CGI is nearly impossible : even if you could import your old files in modern rendering software, you’re pretty sure to have bugs, incompatibility problems, geometry errors, and so on.
The only thing you can buy with real money in Battlefront II are skins.
We are still waiting for UHD releases of The Force Awakens and Rogue One, when you would think that would have been a no brainer, so…
The Last Jedi is actually referenced in the first paragraph of The Force Awakens opening crawl:
Luke Skywalker has vanished.
In his absence, the sinister
FIRST ORDER has risen from
the ashes of the Empire
and will not rest until
Skywalker, the last Jedi,
has been destroyed.
A fitting title I must say! (Before the release of the movie everyone was speculating who were the last Jedi, was the title plural, when the answer was there all along)
Did anyone get the new Star Wars Archives book? It looks massive!
I have it. It’s huge! I mean physically: the book is very large and heavy. I haven’t got the time to read it yet, I just took a quick look: there’s a few seldom seen pictures, like pre-production art from Colin Cantwell.
Unfortunately, all the actual frame grabs from the movies are from the special editions. For example, there’s behind the scenes photos of how they originally made the emperor in ESB, and on the same page the frame from the movie show Ian McDarmid from the SE. This is ridiculous! At least it’s acknowledged in the legends of the frame grabs that they are from the SE.
Play it in Battlefront !
In 2013, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope was released on DVD dubbed in Navajo.
But you absolutely need to do a HD scan if you want to capture all the details that are on film.
A lot of people think wrongly that old films aren’t HD no need for blu-ray when those old films do look far better on blu-ray.

The French dub of La guerre des étoiles (as Star Wars was known in France in 77) is hilarious! With a strong seventies vibe: the younglings nowadays would find it old fashioned…
They’ll make 18 more films in the Skywalker Saga! A trilogy of trilogies of trilogies!

This is so powerful. (And goes far beyond online harassment)
