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.  

everyone is saying how good it is now....but I gave up half way and I have no intentions of coming back. episode 3 and 4 were so boring

I watched the last episode yesterday. Wow, that was awesome!

 

Spoiler

I loved the opening with the Scout Troopers talking and not being able to shoot the can! Hilarious exchange and reference! :rofl: I'm kind of sad they got shot, I could have seen them become a running joke through future series.

Also, Gideon is a Sith?

 

Now I've got to wait a whole year to continue... :(

All the episodes were good, it's just that more than half of them did nothing to move the story along and that part was frustrating.  I'll certainly be back for season 2 but I hope that they learned a lesson from this.

I don't think so, don't let the dark saber fool you.  I believe that has a part Mandalorian lore and not something directly related to Jedi/Sith.

I was the same, watched the first 4 episodes and i was bored all the way through, the Star Trek Picard 1st episode was better then the first 4 of the Mandalorian.

Time to rewatch the first season! Only a couple of more weeks to go before Season 2!

 

Does anyone know if they are going to release all the episodes at once again? Or will they go for the more traditional weekly release?

According to the IMDB, it will be released weekly...8 episodes with the finale on 18 December.

That's a pity. Although as I was writing the question I kinda figured  it would be like that. I'm sure they realised after releasing season 1 all in one go that it made more sense for their subscriptions to do a weekly release and keep people on their platform for longer.

Do you really need to rewatch season 1?  Don't get me wrong, if you want to and have the time go for it, but to be honest here, not much actually happened.  The episodes/plot for season 1 isn't exactly packed with details you have to keep track of.

Do I need to? Of course not. Do I want to? Hell yeah! I'm a Star Wars nut and thought it was great fun. :laugh:

Dare I say that I've been less enthused with the last two episodes (2 and 3).  In fact ... they kinda bored me.

 

Hopefully things pick up with the tease of you-know-who in the next episode.

Don't think you should hold your breath on any dropped names showing up immediately

I found 2 a bit meh, really enjoyed 3 but felt it seemed a little short.

I don't know how to feel about the runtime of each episode. That they range from 30 minutes to an hour can be frustrating as I don't know how much I'm getting each episode, but I guess I prefer that rather than there being unnecessary padding to stretch the episode out.

 

I've enjoyed the episodes so far, and it was great seeing Timothy Olyphant and Katee Sackhoff in their roles. I doubt we'll see the marshal again, but if what I've read about Bo-Katan is right I hope she'll come back at some point.

It wasn't The Mandalorian, but some Netflix/Prime show where they said one of the filmmaking benefits of streaming is not having the time constraint and going at the pace the story dictates.  I can get behind that.  But damn 3 felt short.

      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.
