Oscars New Rules For Diversity and Inclusion for Best Picture Consideration

New Oscars eligibility rules for Best Picture consideration are creating confusion within studios, who are left wondering what impact (if any) on their movies it will have in the consideration for 2021 Oscars nomination.  In the meanwhile, critics are divided. Some call these rules into question because they detract from a movie’s merit, and put an unreasonable emphasis on quotas over quality instead. While others are left wondering whether these rules go far enough or whether they’re simply setting too low of a threshold, one which frankly already is in play. In other words, the Oscars are seeming to be doing something but in reality perpetuating the status quo. As with any attempt at change, there’s bound to be supporters as well as critics. What the Oscars have attempted isn’t perfect, by any stretch of the imagination, but in spirit it’s nevertheless a step in the right direction.  The Oscars…

Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes Galactic Legends: Unlock and Requirements

The devs over at Capital games are adressing some questions around which types of units and how many units will be required for Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and Sith Eternal Emperor. Both of these units will follow a similar roll out as previous Galactic Legends but with a shorter roll out and will not require previous Galactic Legends, such as Rey or Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, to unlock. There has also been some confusion around if there are 15 or 14 requirements as the two screens below show conflicting information. There are 15 units required for Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and 15 units required for Sith Eternal Emperor. The prerequisites screen is missing one of the units in a future batch and will be fixed in a future update. See you on the Holotables! Join the forum discussion on this post

Star Wars: Darkness Rising: The Threat Within Chapters 13 and 14

Chapter: 13 Lando paced in and out of the cockpit.   Each time he came in, he looked at the holo-projection then turned and walked out again.   Nein sighed as Lando came back in once again.   There wasn’t anything that they could do until the padawans contacted them.   Lando grumbled then turned to walk back out of the cockpit.  BX began making noise and whistling.   “What?” Lando said.  Nein said something and pointed at the holo-projection.  Lando looked at the Holoprojection.  It zoomed in on a ship that was descending toward the city.   “It can’t be,” he said and sat down in the pilot’s chair.  BX whistled again.  Nein looked at some other information on a different screen.  He muttered something to Lando.  “Well, poodoo,” he said.  “Of all the luck to see them again.”  The hologram turned as the ship sailed overhead.   The words Star Dust clearly visible.  “I think…

Star Wars™: Legion: An Overview

Warfare is an ineluctable element of the Star Wars™ universe, whether it’s a blow dispensed to the Rebel Alliance during the Battle of Hoth or Rebel Strike squads facing off against legions of stormtroopers on Endor.

The Mandalorian Ep 7 & 8 Rated 100% on Tomatometer

Can a show truly be perfect? If so, The Mandalorian has reached that pinnacle of critic perfection. Now that the entire first season has dropped on Disney+, the critics have weighed in and the show gets a 100% Tomato rating on Rotten Tomatoes for episodes 7 and 8. This is quite possibly unheard of. Most shows start off strong and peter out at the end. And when it comes to Star Wars stories… well, even the biggest fans know they have a pattern of leaving us with a let-down. The Mandalorian, however, does exactly the opposite of that. What started out as a fun, action-packed episodic adventure with a cute little “baby Yoda” who even non-Star Wars fans could get excited about has the most epic ending ever in that the ending is just the beginning. Episode 8 leaves us with more questions than answers, but in that “I can’t…

Star Wars Gamers Fans Reflect on SWTOR Anniversary

It’s the 8th anniversary of SWTOR and some of you have been around since the very start with us. Some of you have been reading and sharing our posts since the very beginning and we are SO grateful for you all. Today, in honor of the SWTOR 8th anniversary and our amazing readers, I want to share some of YOUR memories of the game. Lisa Rodriguez I used to be part of a guild named the Order of Ashla. I had some really fun RP there, mostly with players like Nol, Hydro, Trouten and Church. We tried to keep in touch after wards but now, it’s just Nol and Hydro I’m still in touch with. The guild died out after the server change including also switching ourselves to another RP server. When we tried to continue it, I wasn’t online often enough as a Council Member and something happened to where the…

Happy 8-Year Anniversary from Star Wars: The Old Republic

On December 20th, SWTOR celebrating its 8th year, I remember this anniversary all too well because a) I was writing for this site and we were SUPER pumped for the launch and b) I had a baby 2 days later. We were all taking bets on which one come first – the baby or the game. This is a game that has seen its share of controversy, like all Star Wars games, honestly, and one that holds a lot of memories for a lot of people, myself included. I was able to attend the inaugural Guild Summit in Austin and meet the staff at BioWare Austin and see behind the scenes of the making of the game, for one. And now we are here, with another year in the books and SWTOR staff have some memories of their own they want to share. This message from the Team on SWTOR.com…

Should Jedi: Fallen Order Get a Sequel?

Jedi Fallen Order

We were all VERY excited for a new Star Wars game and despite some issues, Jedi: Fallen Order did not disappoint. But, should it get a sequel? CBR.com says YES! And honestly, I agree. Are there some issues with the game? Yes. Is it still worth playing? Yes. But does it still deserve a sequel? Yes! Jonathan Figueroa says: ” After dozens of canceled Star Wars video games — and a handful of lame ones — Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has arrived, finally delivering on the promise of an action-packed lightsaber adventure. It isn’t perfect, as the game has its fair share of issues and bugs, but Fallen Order can be improved upon in a sequel — and yes, it definitely deserves one. Before we discuss what we want to see in a sequel, though, let’s talk about why it needs one, and where this game succeeds the most. “ And he really hits the nail on the head…
