I don't care who the story revolves around as long as it's got a good story and it's entertaining.

 

SPAGHETTI WESTERN........IN SPACE!!!!

I'm quite digging the series in general. When I first saw the baby yoda I thought, "urgh, really? Do you have to make that link to the Star Wars universe?" but much like he has grown on the Mandalorian he has grown on me.

I have watched the first 3 episodes and IMO, it is just ok.  Has not really excited me or fully captured my interest.  Also disappointed the episodes were 30min long.  The last episode I watched where they trained the village to fight back seemed rushed to fit it into the time allocated for the episode.

 

Overall, not very impressed.

I'm starting to get annoyed at how short the episodes are. Episode 5 was short yet awesome, I want more! And at the same time it makes me realize that there was no real progression in the storyline, I hope episode 6 changes things.

Episodes should be an hour long.  They are trying to pack to much in to 30 minutes.  I will give it the season, but so far not impressed with what Disney is putting out.

 

Started watching Watchmen and so far, tons better than The Madalorian.

I think the pace is by design, they've said it's more like the old westerns but in space.  They're pretty much like this if you've ever watch any of them before.  I agree the eps are short but I think they filmed the whole thing as a whole movie and then just went back and edited into 8 eps.  I really think it should be watched all together as one long movie.

Just saw episode 6, it was one of the better ones IMO.

Yeah, I really enjoyed it. It was a bit weird seeing Bill Burr and hearing Richard Ayoade, but I think they did well.

It just shows the silly level of fandom for star wars that even someone as Bill Burr would do a part.  Outside of his standup I've only ever seen him act on old Chapelle show skits.

Ep6 was by far the worst I've seen so far. No idea why anyone could or would ignore the horrible acting by the other characters in that Ep.

I thought the acting was just fine.

It's an odd thing, the initial couple of episodes were interesting but I think they rushed things (just like they did with the Han Solo movie).  There is no way for the character to build up as he is already a 'bad ass' and I think that detracts from the story.

 

I would've much more preferred if they explained further what happened when the empire collapsed and how it affected their people.  Perhaps dedicated an entire season to different/unusual bounty missions to establish his reputation rather than some 'flashbacks'.

 

And yes, I wish they'd drop the western in space routine.  It was OK to use once/twice, but it's getting tired...

I didn't even recognize that was Clancy Brown as Burg lol.

Really?  His voice is hard to forget, specially for me.  I'll never forget seeing him for the first time in Highlander.

Really dug the last two episodes ... especially the season finale.  Looking forward to season 2.

OK so the whole season was just working towards the inevitable helmet off reveal, kay.. and imo the IG-11 was able to show more emotion in that last one episode than the mandalorian managed in the entire season. I'm just not invested. Eye candy but if it got cancelled I wouldn't miss it, far better shows have been cancelled (SG Universe, Dark Matter, Enterprise, Firefly, et al).

Not really impressed.  Episodes seemed rushed to pack in as much in a short time frame.  Would have been better if they had 1hr episodes.  Disney could have, and should have, done better.

The last 2 eps were quite good, along with the first one.  The rest are debatable though.  I think it could've just as well been 6 eps with each being a bit longer in turn.

      Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake PS5 and PC timed exclusivity confirmed
      by Asher Madan

      During the PlayStation September 2021 Showcase, Sony revealed that it was working with Aspyr — the team that's ported a lot of old Star Wars games to modern consoles lately — including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake. Despite the overwhelming excitement for the project, there was some confusion about whether the game was a timed exclusive. The main question was if it would end up on other consoles aside from PlayStation 5 (PS5).

      The terms "Launch Exclusive" and "Console Launch Exclusive" were thrown around, but it's unclear what they really mean. Luckily, Tully Ackland, the Senior Game Designer of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake, answered that question. A few days ago on Twitter, Ackland confirmed that it's a "timed exclusive for PS5 and PC". This means it'll come to other devices eventually. Ackland didn't discuss other platforms it'd be available on, but we're hoping it hits Xbox Series X|S down the line.

      Typically, timed exclusivity lasts around a year. Just look at Rise of the Tomb Raider as an example. Keep in mind that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is still very early in development so we'll probably have to wait many years to get our hands on it. Given the fact that COVID-19 is still affecting how everyone works, there's no way to ascertain an accurate timeline.

      Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake announced for PC and PS5
      by Asher Madan

      Today, Sony revealed quite a surprising announcement for PlayStation 5 and PC during its September 2021 Showcase. There's a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake in development. Contrary to expectations, it's being made in partnership with Aspyr instead of the original developer BioWare.

      For those unfamiliar with the original, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic takes place a long time before the events of the films.

      Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is one of the best legacy games out there and the remake is still very early in development according to the PlayStation Blog. It seems like it's going to be a few years before we can get our hands on it.

      If you haven't played Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, it's available as an Xbox One X Enhanced title on the Microsoft Store for $10. You can also buy it on the platform of your choice since it's out on a number of devices including Android and iOS.

      Are you excited for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake? Did you play the original? Let us know in the comments below.

      Open-world Star Wars game under development at Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Massive Entertainment's The Division The newly reborn Lucasfilm Games brand announced its newest project yesterday, with it partnering with Bethesda for an Indiana Jones game. However, the announcements don't stop there, as today, the Disney-owned brand revealed that it is working with Ubisoft for a new Star Wars game.

      The only major Star Wars games to arrive in recent years has been out of Electronic Arts and its share of development studios thanks to a multi-year deal made in 2013 with Disney. However, the announcement today of a Ubisoft title may mean the deal exclusivity is no longer active, or at least it won't be renewed.

      “EA has been and will continue to be a very strategic and important partner for us now and going forward,” said Sean Shoptaw, the senior vice president of Global Games and Interactive Experiences at Disney. “But we did feel like there's room for others.”

      Described as an open world title, this mysterious Star Wars game is under development at Massive Entertainment, the Swedish developer that's most known for its The Division series of action RPGs since 2016. The studio also developed the hit 2007 RTS game World in Conflict.

      The development is said to be still in a very early stage, with Massive currently hiring more faces for the project. It will be using the studio's own Snowdrop engine, the same one that is powering The Division franchise. Judging by these two newly announced projects, there may be more Disney IP-related game announcements incoming soon as the company taps more publishers and developers.

      Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's next-gen console optimization update detailed
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Respawn Entertainment's popular Star Wars action game from 2019, Jedi: Fallen Order, today received a new update, and it comes heralding a large performance benefit for the new generation of consoles. This is not a new edition of Jedi: Fallen Order, it is an update for the backward compatibility-supported original versions for providing better frame rates and resolutions on the newer hardware.

      The provided improvements are not identical across all platforms or console models. Starting with Xbox, the Series S performance has been boosted to 60FPS from 45FPS. Meanwhile on the Xbox Series X, the game provides two modes with separate performance targets. The Performance Mode will offer 60FPS play on 1080p to 1440p dynamic resolution. The non-performance normal mode will come with 4K post-processing and dynamic resolution between 1512p to 2160p (4K).

      On the other side, the PlayStation 5 only comes with one graphics tier, which also brings the frame rate up from 45FPS to 60FPS, but has 1440p post-processing and only 1200p resolution play support (up from the PlayStation 4's 810p to 1080p dynamic resolution).

      The optimization update 1.12's full patch notes can be seen here. It should now be available for all console players to download, including those who are playing it via EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions.

      Minecraft gains Star Wars DLC themed after original trilogy and The Mandolorian
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Minecraft is no stranger to crossovers, and the latest one to be introduced to the behemoth block-based sandbox title is from a galaxy far, far away. The official Minecraft Star Wars DLC Mojang Studios unveiled today has skins, a licensed soundtrack, flyable vehicles, locations, and much more from the sci-fi universe.

      The new Mash-up Pack contains content from the original trilogy - A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi -, and The Mandalorian series. This includes Star Wars-themed UI and audio elements, skins for players, mobs, and items, plus a pre-built map full of iconic locations that present various scenes from the franchise.

      Moreover, Mojang has included X-wings, Tie Fighters, and the Razor Crest as flyable ships that let players jump to locations like Tatooine, Hoth, Endor, Nevarro, and the Death Stars.

      The Star Wars DLC for Minecraft is now available for purchase via the Minecraft Marketplace. Also, this is not the only Microsoft and Disney partnership that has cropped up recently, as the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription currently offers a 30-day trial of Disney+ for free.
