Is there any point in liking Star Wars anymore? Call me a cynical shitlord, but I'm growing more and more disillusioned every day. We all know everything now is run by Disney and we know how bad that is, but even looking backward to the Expanded Universe I'm starting to see many of the "old guard" nowadays propagating pro-Disney support, shilling for Disney on social media, and pushing the same leftist oral diarrhea on the fans and the franchise, and lemme say it, I don't care what someone's politics are, but when they're shoved in my face? Nah man.

I just don't feel any enjoyment anymore. The future of Star Wars is a void, and looking back a lot of what used to be good isn't good now. Is there any good reason to not just give up and stop caring?

Oh hello, Nihilist-Kun or should I say Nihilus-Kun now?. How did you find your way over from /tg/?

The EU only dies if you let it die. I've still got my novels, Steam still has the old games, and places like this still exist. The communities may be smaller, and there might not be new novels, but the collection we were left is vast and rich. All good things come to an end sooner or later; if it wasn't Disney it would have been something else. And Star Wars at least had a longer run than most before going to shit; it could have been like Dune and gotten weird after book 3.



Tolkien was off base there because dragons can be good and noble, which SJWs aren't capable of. Also, unlike SJWs, dragons have faced actual prejudice in many settings where they appear, whereas SJWs are invariably from the richest families and have never had to endure any sort of struggle in their entire lives.



True but that's just for dragons within the Middle Earth setting, as most were pompous assholes and the offspring of Morgoth no less, unlike dragons in under settings and legend.

Looks like the Bluray sells are dipping fast for The Last Jedi ever since the whole Kelly Tran controversy over Twitter where Disney majors like Rian Johnson, Chuck Wendig and even Mark Hamill started dissing fans and its been met with a lot of backlash. Even major sites are attacking the fans and SW is going through the grinder. What could this mean for Lucasfilm in the long run? Have they shot themselves in the foot with a 12 gauge?

She's a part of Geeks and Gamers isn't she? So I don't think she counts by herself, then again she does have her own channel. There's also that guy called John Talks or something who isn't as popular but has SW comics in his room and seems to know his shit. There's also that EU channel some anon made a thread about a week ago or so but he hardly ever brings up the new films, usually only saying that "Lucasfilm is shit but it might not be Disney's fault", then again he's not even as popular as John Talks.



So we are in the "no intellect" camp. But I guess being head of a burning ship is still a leadership position

We also have MauLer, E;R, and Razorfist. WorthaBuy's autistic Scotsman Mac might be persuadable, seeing how much rage he expressed over TLJ.

Razorfist has some normie opinions, but he despises leftists, rants about Disney, and just put out this video.



E;R is good and effective but he's not really actively fighting Disney Wars from what I see. He even said he didn't want to do more SW vids and only came back for Solo because it was a massive flop, yet he thinks its a better movie than previous SW films.



Yeah, but he names the jew so I am obligated to love the man by default.

Speaking of merch, I went to the super market today and there dozens upon dozens of unsold boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch which all had a "get a free Solo ticket" printed all over them along with pics of SW and Solo. Same with some SW Campbells soup cans. Both the CTC and soups were almost dusty. Meanwhile the other cereals were selling well and at the normal rate as usual. Could normalfags actually be waking up?



No, just an average case of normalfags having shit taste as usual, they probably just dislike good hearty soup and crunchy sweet cereals.

All the boxes of French Toast Crunch were selling well though. And Campbells has tasted like watered down mush for the last 4 years. Progresso honestly tastes better and chunkier overall. That's without even accounting for Campbell's awful "Real Real Life" commercials.

This bullshit right here is the one that gets me the most. For the first 3 years after the Disney buyout and even more so after the release of TFA it was nothing but this every other damn weak.



>lucas was surrounded by yes men

This was actually kind of true for the prequels. The result wasn't actually terrible, but some minor issues and rough edges could have been smoothed out.


Disney marketing has its tendrils everywhere.

Are you ready for maximum cringe as Disney violates Star Wars to the extreme in their sequel to a movie that was originally about video games? Are you ready for heinous designs? Leia as a member of the Disney Princess line? C3PO as the princess aide? And fucking nu-troopers fighting alongside Muppets?! FUCKING END THE PAIN!

I found it to be enjoyable, and I wouldnt have any qualms about letting my kids watch itif I had kids



Silverman is actually the only truly bad thing about the first one. And it gets worse when you realize her character is made to resemble her a bit (even her hair color is just made the same as Silverman's despite not following the same colorful aesthetic of the game she originates from). Which is why I prefer to watch the Japanese version of the film in which she actually sounds like a little girl (with good acting) and has better characterization. The first one is actually a pretty fun little film to enjoy and it doesn't rely to heavily on forced cameos and references since the second half of the movie takes place in an entirely original game setting based on Candyland that focuses solely on the four main characters. Q-Bert is pretty much the only vidya character the movie who plays a consistent but minor role in the plot.



Can't have fatherly characters in modern kids movies unless:

>they are the bad guy

>they are comic relief and constantly fuck up


I made it over halfway in before I closed out. this is just terrible.



It really wasn't. Things were actually funny when they were meant to be, likewise cute, and likewise heartwrenching.I guess I didn't mind Silvermann, but that was before I had any idea of her politics.

This new one appears to miss the point entirely. Could have been fun to have some Mafia-pastiche Anons running a DDOS "hold-up" on one of the big sites.

So it's pretty much agreed that they were the good guys forced into the "bad" role by way of plot, but there are some E.U. stories that make them bad. But in a dumb way. Crystal Star anyone?

Is it safe to ignore shitty E.U. stories like that one that make the Empire a joke?

I read that as Contisperg at first…



Dantius Cosinga Augustus Frank Cos Dashit Palpatine. Or just Frank for his friends.



Cosinga wasn't that bad. The fact is that everything he did to bond with Palpatine, besides racing, was doomed to fail. Palpatine despised his own father as an inept politician as soon he came to age to understand what politics were. And that was the father who covered his misdeeds and unruly behavior. Palpatine was a psychopath from day one.



That's not how it went though. Palpatine was a fairly regular guy, albeit reckless and who liked the thrill of chaos, but his only misdeed to his dad was that he didn't kowtow and fear him. It was said that his siblings and mother had virtually no opinions of their own and feared Cosinga greatly, and learned to respect him subserviently to avoid his wrath. Palpatine was the exception, and even his siblings hated him for it. His mother's opinion isn't mentioned much. Aboard their yacht after Cosinga's forbidden Palpatine to see Plagueis anymore, thinking he's a political rival, it reached a breaking point where Palpatine lets out a "you fucking suck" speech, and Cosinga likewise admits he'd hated Palpatine all his life and that he'd had a mind to kill him from the very start, as he felt one day Palpatine would be better than him and therefore not easily-controlled. At that, Palpatine went into a berserk rage and ended up unleashing his Dark side prowess, killing his father and likely unintentionally his two siblings and mother.

Palpatine was funnily enough the only normal person from a very beyond-dysfunctional family, and only when his rage reached a breaking point did he go psycho, and it wasn't unjustified, not against his dad at least.

Everything Bazinga did to "bond" with him was stuff trying to cover up Palpatine's mischief



And yet through all this covering, Consinga reinforced the notion also that Palpatine could do no wrong, and indeed was invincible. That's bad parenting no matter how you slice it.

>fairly regular guy

A bit of a sociopath too, seeing how he had no guilt about running down that pedestrian with his car.

What are your favourite SW games?

What are your least favourite SW games?

If you could make any game in the SW universe without any restrictions, what kind of game would you make?

And why will the VR game suck so much?

>needless filler?

Yes. Tons of backtracking through the same corridors, just going back and forth between droids to advance their dialogue, and it's not insightful or entertaining dialogue either.

The concept was neat, and the potential was there, but it was just executed poorly.



Most of the areas you backtrack through are fucking huge, too, which makes doing the quests even more tedious. The one thing I did like was the padawan getting murdered by droids at the end.



>it's not insightful or entertaining dialogue either

And the voice acting is awful too. I spent most of the planet with voices muted.




Is still worse imo.


So, at what point do you unlock Kreia's dialogue regarding the lesson of strength learned from Hanharr? I've already finished Nar Shadaa, Dantooine, and Korriban, shouldn't the dialogue branch be available by now? I also have maximum influence with hanharr as well, not sure if it's the case with Kreia too but I haven't failed any of her dialogue branches so I assume it's high. Am I missing something?

Can we get a list of the good stuff from the new canon?

Thus far I've found nothing except the mobile game Force Arena, Rebels/Clone Wars, Thrawn Novel, Tarkin Novel and the Quinlan Vos novel



Lords of the Sith is an decent book that I've never seen mentioned here. Certainly better than the vast majority of the nucuckery.


File: 3755839c55de29a⋯.jpg (102.39 KB, 720x538, 360:269, tor_player.jpg)

Lords of the Sith was a pretty good book but after Paul S. Kemp's Twitter tantrum I cannot in good faith recommend giving him money. Zahn's Thrawn book was good enough that I'm still looking forward to Alliances, which may be the last piece of official Star Wars media I consume for the foreseeable future. Tarkin was also a good novel and it was intended for print before the Disney buyout so James Luceno didn't have to change much. As a general rule, most of the stuff that was published before Episode VII came out is worth a look except for Cuck Wingding the Soylaac's abortion of a trilogy.

I've read the Vader and Maul comics. Your mileage will vary on whether or not you like the new Sith lore they dump onto you. Dr. Aphra is a character that left a bad taste in my mouth from those comics and it doesn't help they tried to give her an independent series run (which I don't think anyone bought). The Lando mini-series was nice.

I like seasons 2 and 3 of Rebels. Dave Filoni started roleplaying too much in furry communities while writing the series finale.

Can't recommend any of the new games being made by EA if that needs to be said. TOR I think is still worth playing for free or Preferred Access, but that's mostly because it's the last piece of "Legends" stuff still maintained even if it is on life support.

All in all that's probably more earnest recommendations than you'll get from the rest of the board, but I've never been a wholesale EU diehard. The new trilogy is stepping on their toes more than mine. Again, the quality of stuff is on a general decline ever since the debut of Ep.VII, so the chronology on wookiepedia is your greatest ally. Somewhere between TLJ and Soylo I stopped looking for diamonds in the rough, though, so I don't think anything besides "Alliances" will even get my attention.

>the shitshow that made force ghosts into wolves, set up hyperspace as being discovered because of goofy purple octo whales and made wolves the most important creatures in existence

The only reason the Tarkin novel is good is because of Luceno and the fact that it was originally written for the old canon. Zahn is a good writer so even he can make shit look good despite the nu-canon limitations.

Instead they take a back seat and become useless nothings for the sake of putting more attention on the poorly conceived soccer ball thanks to Disney. That red arm bullshit still irks me to this day and just makes me hate Abrams all the more.



I was under the impression it was done as a nod to Kojima and MGSV, since there's a picture of them together with a copy of the game. Still dumb though in context of the movie.

I get that it's alphabetical, but the default should be a neutral option. Ive posted under Alderaan without intending to.



And what could serve as a neutral flag then? Alderaan seems pretty neutral, especially since its fucking dead. Or should gungan be the default since its funnier? Or maybe the symbol of the stormtrooper corps since that's our fucking default name anyway.




Think he means neutral as in no flag at all. Personally, my vote is to keep it as is as it's produced some nice OC.




I was thinking either blank or stormtrooper corps. but I guess it doesn't matter too much.
