And what did the other hundreds of people say? People have notoriously poor memory during and after stressful events. I’d go with collected info rather than focus on one person.

Nomak 6/10. Nomak can tank a lot of damage, and when Bucky and Cap pour on more lethal attacks, Nomak can very rapidly heal.

Bucky’s guns will do nothing here. Nomak should be fast enough to negate any shield throws too.

Yeah, the graphics seem to be equivalent to SoM... and sometimes not as crisp. But hey, I’ll take better gameplay over better graphics. And the gameplay here is improved (not huge improvements, but it is better).

Fortress defense is pretty damn fun, especially since you can make customizations to your defense just like you can to offense. I wish you could control the direction your assault leaders travel... as that would really help add to the strategy of an assault. But orcs are not known for being super strategic military units. They are known for overwhelming with brute force.

Also I have noticed that several captains might betray you at once in a rebellion (rebellion actually flashes on the screen). I read online this can happen if your region is too peaceful. So now I leave a handful of enemy captains alive in each region.

Had a shaking go bad and turned a level 40 enemy captain into a level 53 maniac. I’m still at 39, so it’s a bit worrying depending on if he’s gained some new immunities.

The Ackbar stuff is 100% on point. Why introduce a new major character just to kill them off immediately while wiping away a classic major character? Holdo easily could have been left alive to take the shuttles while Ackbar (not killed off) made the big save.

And also great point on Finn and Rose jeopardizing so much for very stupid reasons (including parking in the open area on a private beach).

And just highlighting how poorly thought out the Rose save of Finn was at end. Just so dumb, and I had high hopes for Rose being cool. Her introduction was refreshing, as here was a common grunt getting to hobknob with her heroes and go on a secret mission! She could be a great “average Jane” audience surrogate, right? And then they make her and Finn’s mission a total shit show of stupidity. Finn is even tainted by the whole thing, but this plot was all Rose has... and it sucks.

Dutch has almost no effect punching the Pred. I don’t see Rocky doing much here.

Only when I'm committing crimes

And only when against minorities.

No return of Ronk yet, but I am liking the main quests in this game. Helping the forest spirit Maiar fight the Balrog was fun. The Bruz/Ratbag stuff is nothing crazy great, but it is entertaining.

Galadriel’s elf assassin is neat... if only because I know the new expansion centers on her. And another expansion in May where go to Harard? As a normal Gondorian captain who cannot resurrect? Sign me up for that. I want to see the nemesis system play out in a different way. Guess you’ll have to recruit Easterlings through force? Maybe hiring troops through the market?

It’s amazing how HEARTFELT GENUINE the finale. There was comedy here and there, but this was really a solid look at Eleanor and the battle for her soul. Michael the bartender was so good, as was Eleanor reconnecting with Chidi Annakendrick.

Rogue One

didn't the two main characters have sort of a thing?

Nothing ever explicitly mentioned and no plot points involving it.

I think him sounding nothing like Ford helps. If he sounded like he was trying ape Ford’s style, it would be awful. But he’s doing his own riff which I can respect more. The half-cocky “we’re fine” is a very Han Solo thing to say, and he delivers it well. That’s not to say he’ll be great, but it at least looks solid.

So what’s the deal here? Crew for a heist... after he defects from the Imperials and meets Chewie... and is that madness at the end the Kessel Run?
