Who’s betting that Ahsoka will appear in the Kenobi show ?!
A big disappointment I realize I had with her Rebels appearances is that she was actually really boring there?
Snips is not snippy anymore ?
I don’t know, I’ve found this band of misfits pretty funny ! (Besides, this show is just a way to continue The Clone Wars)
Rosario Dawson starred in Death Proof, the Quentin Tarantino movie!
Did you spot the IG-11 statue ?!
If they start veering down the Snoke/Palpatine/Exogol thread. I’m out.
It may very well be the backdrop of the story…
Do not play with your food!

I like that it’s simple storytelling, without a profusion of characters and multiple storylines that in other series can be confusing to follow.
Hope that it don’t turn to… (SPOILERS AHEAD)
beast of the week episodes !
The Tragedy of Droids in Star Wars, a Pop Culture Detective video essay.
Did you catch the format change? It went from CinemaScope aspect ratio to full screen HDTV for the action sequences!
Paul Duncan is a Lucas apologist. I wouldn’t give credit to his “findings”.
Hey everyone, what’s the learning curve for this type of game if you haven’t played a lot of flight sims? I have played X-Wing Alliance and Tie Fighter on PC a long, long time ago (no pun intended) and own the Battlefront games. Though, I’m average at best at these type of games. I’ve been intrigued by being able to play Squadrons in VR especially after playing the Battlefront X-Wing experience (and that is something else!). I also read up on some reviews and have heard negatives. Any positives you may be able to share?
I was afraid I would not be good at this game, and I’m not, but I’m having fun with it. I have the same experience as you, so I imagine you would be as mediocre as I! I think the key is finding your class and sticking with it. Get good at Bombers or Interceptors, something like that.
Yeah, as long as it’s fun, that’s all that really matters. Do you play this game in VR by chance? I can imagine it being quite exhilarating if the gameplay isn’t too challenging. I played Battlefront’s X-Wing VR experience and had a blast with it.
It’s easier to play in VR: you can easily look where you want, independently of your flying! And a quick look around allows you to orient yourself and assess rapidly what’s going on in the battlefield.
The game is daunting at first: it’s quite fast paced, there’s a lot to master in the cockpit but after a few hours things become to feel natural, you get better at the game, and this is where the fun begins!
Does this have the same mechanics as the space battles in SWBF2?
Not at all! It’s a completely different game, a true space flight sim.
What was the name of the film that JJ Abrams saw Daisy Ridley in that made him say “Who’s that girl?” and cast her in TFA?
Scrawl ? According to IMDb it’s the only movie she had done before TFA!
What’s wrong with the romance between Han and Leia? Their back and forth banter is one of the oft-cited strengths of the film, and I agree. Their chemistry on screen is really fun and engaging.
It’s basically the “boy sexually harasses girl until she gives in” storyline.
And when she finally gives in, it’s at the worst moment: they should all be working hard to fix the Falcon’s hyperdrive to escape the Empire and Han has no better idea than to go bothering her to get his kiss.
But it’s definitely a problematic part of Empire IMO.
It hasn’t aged well that’s for sure. In fact, Harrison Ford movies from the eighties haven’t aged well, as explained in this video: Predatory Romance in Harrison Ford Movies
The guy (Paul Duncan) interviewed George Lucas recently for his Star Wars books (there’s an Archives for the prequels coming soon), so maybe he doesn’t want to upset George by defending the theatrical cuts? It’s better for his work to stay in good terms, no matter what…
It’s a true space flight sim! Rogue Squadron is more arcade-y.
I’ve got the Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas 4, it works well, but I don’t have a lot of experience with it. In fact I bought it recently, as soon as support for HOTAS on consoles in Squadrons was announced.
Out today! Already played the prologue and the first mission in the story, in VR and with an HOTAS on my PS4 pro. Stay on target!
Also, am I the only one who for a moment thought the Bantha was speaking here; https://youtu.be/eW7Twd85m2g?t=35
So, how do we call the hypothetical official release with a new 4K scan of the theatrical version of the Original Trilogy?
That would be the only future release that I can’t wait to buy. I won’t buy any new fancy holovrsensotron release if it’s not George’s Original Unaltered Trilogy!
