I adore them. They're one of my favourite horror series. The first three are awesome and although the later Saw movies go against the principals and rules of the earlier ones, I still love them too.
When I saw the trailer to this last year, I was so excited! Cinemas should be open to plan next week in the UK and I'm so eager to watch it!
Watched (most of) the major arcs of The Clone Wars finally, though I'm only half way through the second arc of season 7. I enjoyed some episodes (the first Mandalore arc where they introduce Dutchess Satine, the one where Ahsoka got framed for the council bombing, and a few other random ones), and really, really didn't like others (the Nightsister ones I actively hated).
LOVE the narrator at the start of each one. I'd never seen or heard that was a thing before, very cool! Fits in perfectly with the three paragraph crawls for the saga films.
Season 7 is a big step up from what I've seen so far. I can't say I've fallen in love with the show as much as I hoped I would but maybe that comes from not watching it all properly. I do like Ahsoka a lot more at least. Anakin's good too, so much cooler than his prequel form.
Conversely I can't stand Yoda in TCW. Dull, only there for exposition, no personality and they cranked his inverted sentences way of talking up to 500%, which really grates. The only characterisation of Yoda I've loved since the originals was in The Last Jedi. Perfect.
I'll finish season 7 and probably leave it at that for TCW. I like the multi episode arc structure but at the same time, the time period just doesn't do it for me, but they HAVE legitimised the prequels a tad in my eyes, which is great.
Watched the first two episodes of The Bad Batch, will watch the third tonight. Absolutely loved the first one, so cinematic and well produced! It felt a bit like an animated film at times. I was worried the show would be lacking in personality, but thankfully there's a ton of that. Wrecker is great. Love his bromance with Tech. Hunter and Omega have a good thing going too. Hopefully the storyline will stand a bit apart from Mando as the show goes on.
Gotta say, don't know what Echo is doing there. Seems a blank slate compared to the others.
The second episode was a lot slower, I think I was pretty taken back by that, but still good. Only watched it once though so maybe I'll prefer it on second viewing.
Oh and the visuals, my god.
Yeah for sure but if they can do it justice in live action then fair enough. I'm sure Dave will tell a good story, especially as it feels like they have big plans for Thrawn. Kessel Run Transmissions who have a good track record casually put into conversation a month or two ago that there's going to be an Ezra Thrawn Disney+ show on the way. Can't remember if they stipulated live action or animated, but either way I'm in! I don't know how Dave and Jon are juggling all these series.
Disappointed no Twitter reveals on May the 4th but I figured they might happen with a new show launching that same day. They don't want to take attention away from it, fair enough. Hope we get some Visions news soon.
As @Julius says Lost Stars is apparently excellent. I really enjoyed the first Aftermath book too, but reviews on that series are a bit mixed I think. Light of the Jedi is excellent if you want to jump to the High Republic era. Avoid Resistance Reborn, terrible.
Yeah, Daruk is someone who really needs the Attack Speed weapon buff to be effective. But stack those up and he becomes one of the better characters. His later combo finishers give him mad invincibility frames!
EDIT: Oh wait, looking back on my previous posts, Daruk seems to be the one character I didn't put attack speed on? That DLC needs to come out now so I have an excuse to play this before I forget everything!
Continuing our trend of disagreeing on everything. Revali is probably at the bottom of my rankings in this game. I'm not too keen on his moveset.
He's not outright bad though, crowd control is great and he's the best at evading attacks. I don't think there's a single terrible character in this game. (Looking at you, Ruto. You useless pile of garbage!)
I started playing this about a week ago now and even though I’ve not put a significant amount of time into the game yet (only on chapter 3) I have very much enjoyed what I’ve played so far.
I was originally planning on using my demo data to carry on playing but because it’s taken me so long to pick up the game, I figured it would be best to start again and get a refresher on the story and gameplay mechanics.
Despite my feelings towards BOTW, I did like the art style, characters and setting and so to play a game that has all of those, but adds a decent story and gameplay that is more to my tastes, has been great.
My favourite champion in BOTW was easily Revali and that hasn’t changed here. Dude is an absolute beast at crowd control, not to mention how fast he can deplete the stamina/stun bar that appears on the larger enemies. It’s so satisfying flying around the maps and raining down explosive arrows from above.
All the other characters have been fun to use, with the exception of Daruk. I’ve never been a fan of large, slow moving characters. Sure, he hits like train but I much prefer the more nimble warriors.
Also, it’s been great having a game to use my amiibo on. In recent times it seems like developers have forgotten about them and so it’s good to get some use out of them again.
