‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ Is the Best ‘Star Wars’ Game I’ve Played…But It’s Not Without Out Its Faults

For the past couple of months, the buzz around Star Wars has been something else. First, there was The Mandalorian which grasped the hearts of millions with its incredible storytelling and fascinating new characters. And then, shortly thereafter, the highly-anticipated game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order arrived, sending Star Wars fans into even happier pandemonium. I heard the excited chatter and was thrilled to one day play the game.

Nine days ago we finally got the game and it wasn’t long before we got to work. In short, the experience was thrilling. The story was engaging, the thoughtful combat style is very difficult and sometimes maddening (in a good way), the graphics are well-done and at times one can easily just stand in an area and stare at the impressive surroundings. So…where’s the catch, you may ask? Continue reading ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ Is the Best ‘Star Wars’ Game I’ve Played…But It’s Not Without Out Its Faults

‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Delivers Two Episodes This Week

I forgot to write a review for last week’s episode of Star Wars: Resistance because, well, it was boring. Goofy and easily predictable, The Mutiny was somewhat intriguing but overall, I was bored. And then, this week’s two episodes (yes, two) arrived and of course, I decided to watch them.

The first episode, Episode 14: The New World, was actually really, really cool. The Colossus ended up finding a planet they could finally settle down in named Aeos Prime and it was home to a very interesting alien race that was native to the primordial ocean planet.

This was the first episode in a long while that actually made me very happy. The humor was actually funny, the scenarios were riveting, and by the end, I felt like I had seen something worth watching.

Then the second episode of this week’s two-episode header (No Place Safe) devolved right back into the same, tiring formula. The Colossus was in trouble, the First Order was on the brink of apprehending the heroes, and everyone got away just in time. Honestly, how many more times can the same thing happen over and over again before one’s brain feels like mush because it’s just that boring to watch.

Star Wars: Resistance had every chance to be a really fun and creative show but it’s become something that I can’t wait to end. The Clone Wars is arriving next month which will be a breath of fresh air compared to this cartoon. Gosh, it’s tiring.

I’ll give The New World a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars because it was surprisingly really, really good. And I’ll give No Place Safe 3 out of 5 stars simply because it wasn’t exactly a bad episode. It was just repetitive.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. May the Force be with you.

Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Forty-Six

The mood in the Tolgan craft was grim. Yes, friends were reunited and a sense of comradery restored but a valuable member of the crew was gone. Really, really gone and he wasn’t coming back.

Keeli Calrissian strived to contain her composure. She knew what it felt like to lose someone she loved. She had lost both of her parents on the Day of Darkness when SHE had arrived and changed so many lives in an instant. For the next few years, she continued to fight but not without feeling the terrible strain of sorrow on her heart of their loss. John had been there to help her through her darkest times. He had promised to never leave her side and he had kept his promise.

And now, he was gone. Continue reading Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Forty-Six
