    This looks remarkably familiar...

    Note that we always used JPN to denote a Japanese version. Which is the accepted form to avoid any upset!

    Beat me to it. You can spend hours pouring love into something and no-one will ever buy it. You can throw something together and it sells tons. Attention to detail does not equal sales.
  4. I’m enjoying the discussion in here. I love the original trilogy and for me, I view both the prequels and modern trilogy so far as fan fiction, I can take them or leave them as they’re at best emulating something I love or they are betraying it to some degree. The odd thing for me is the big gap was filled by games and books which I think to some degree did a better job of filling out the universe in a way that made sense and expanded on it. As much as I love Rogue One, I’m pretty sure I stormed that base as Kyle Katarn to liberate the Death Star plans in a way that was only the opening act to later taking out Dark Troopers before the Force awakened in me. Though it was weird when I fought side by side with Max that time... And I sit and scoff at the really amateur way some pilots like Poe dont charge their front sheilds before a frontal assault on some First Order Dreadnaught, especially as if he could for a moment, just resist hitting the trigger, he could dump the charge from the laser banks into the shield as needed and then let loose wth the torpedoes that don’t take any energy from the power distribution systems. And thus is the problem. When you’ve realised ‘wait a minute, this Revan guy sounds awfully familiar...’ it’s always going to be uphill compared to the original stories, the ones you’ve lived through and the ones you’ve imagined. Like I say, fan fiction, its someone else having a go at telling a new story in a universe I know and love, but its up to me if I like it. I consider Tie Fighter as cannon, Masters of Teras Kasi can do one (though it was nice it was referenced in Solo!). I can only imagine how terrible a design by comittee fan finaced venture of TLJ would be, but I’d still give it a watch
  5. I’m loving this discussion as it validates a lot I’ve thought about the new trilogy so far... ...but I do have to point out that just before the attack on the Death Star in Star Wars you can clearly see them disconnecting fuel pipes from a number of fighters. The whole chase is clearly cumbersome and contrived of course I get the feeling though that both TFA and TLJ are for the next generation of Star Wars fans and for the creakier ones like me, thats why we’ve got Rogue One and Solo to pull on those nostalgia glands.

    The Jackal one is OK, but it's missing the magic of the Star Wars one. Honestly, although it takes up about 48GB of HDD, I still fire it up now and again as it makes me happy. It's a great showpiece to anyone going 'Why did you buy that then?' too.

    Have you always wanted to fly an X-Wing? If so get it. If you have never wanted to fly an X-Wing, don't. Arguable at £4 it's a couple of goes on the Star Wars Battle Pod arcade game and worth it for that alone. I bought it when it was £10 and regret nothing.

    I didn't have anything to do with it, but it seems to be going down well. I'm tied up on Crackdown 3!

    Yes it's us (Sumo) on dev duties. That is literally all I can say on the matter. I'd expect some more info in the near future

    You guessed correct. E3 is around the corner chaps. Just saying.

    Randomly I had an email survey from Sony today saying they'd noticed I'd not used my PSVR recently. Which is random, I've been playing God of War so I guess it's been a couple of weeks. Some interesting questions about price, quality, cables etc. Told them to announce some new games

    Maybe this conversation could be had in it's own thread eh?

    All Grainger Games stores are now closed

    Real shame this, the Sheffield store was pretty good and the staff genuinely cared about games. They even bothered to stock new Vita releases. Sad times.
