6 Things I Want to See in an Open World Star Wars Video Game

Word hit the internet last week that a revived Lucasfilm Games will be teaming with Ubisoft to make an open world Star Wars video game. Considering those are my absolute favorite type of video game, I’m pretty thrilled at the news. We don’t know anything about the game at this point — which means I’m completely free to speculate on what I’d like in the game!

Four score and seven years ago…

I’m a fan of Ubisoft games like the Assassin’s Creed series, and I’m currently playing Watch Dogs Legion. I’m not so deep into video game culture as to have opinions on developers or really even dislike anybody. I find games to play and I play them. And if they’re Star Wars games and they’re open world games, you best believe I’m going to play it and hopefully love it! And considering my vast and varied knowledge of all things Star Wars, I’ve got plenty of ideas for what I’d want to see in the game. Let’s put Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in our rear view mirrors and take hold of a bold new open world franchise!

Join me after the jump for six things I personally would love to see in an open world Star Wars video game! And feel free to share some of your own hopes and Star Wars video game dreams in the comments!

Let’s Watch Something Truly Spectacular!

Sometimes in my eagerness to post something every day, I’ll fall back on some pretty standard YouTube stuff, like Honest Trailers or the like. It’s fun to watch, but is it really quality content? Am I truly bringing you readers something interesting to watch?

This time, I know for sure I’ve randomly stumbled across something truly spectacular! Behold, Pexachu vs. Godzilla!

This stop motion masterpiece was animated over the course of two years by Mootroid X Productions. They’re got a bunch of stop motion shows on their YouTube channel, so hopefully you enjoy some of those as well. I really loved this video and I am truly pleased to share and enjoy!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/16/21

We’ve got another giant pile of comic book reviews this week because I’m still dipping my toes into DC’s Future State. Some of the comics are good…most of the stories are pretty bland, if I’m being honest. But hey! New comics! Including plenty from Marvel.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #3 as it continues to be such a damn fine comic book! The drama just doesn’t stop!

Meanwhile, how about those first two episodes of WandaVision? They were pretty great! I wish I had the patience to wait for the entire show to drop, because those two episodes were clearly the tip of an iceberg, but I’m sure I’ll be fine waiting for each new episode week-to-week. It’s old-fashioned!

Comic Reviews: Marauders #17, Mighty Morphin #3, S.W.O.R.D. #2, The Union #2, Future State: Dark Detective #1, Future State: Green Lantern #1, Future State: Justice League #1 and Future State: Robin Eternal #1.

Damian Wayne is a Dark Robin in New Ongoing Series!

Spinning out of this new Infinite Frontier thing that DC Comics is doing, Damian Wayne is going to get a new Robin solo series starting in April! He’s going to get a new costume and a new mission, having cut himself off from Batman and the Teen Titans.

Why he gets to keep the Robin name is anyone’s guess. I’m not thrilled about it, but I will dutifully report any Robin-based news on this blog.

The new series will be written by Joshua Williamson, with art by Gleb Melnikov. The series will have a new supporting cast, new characters and a lot of fights.

“Being a big fan of Damian Wayne, I’m really excited about getting him back on a hero’s journey,” says Williamson in the new series announcement. “Gleb is the perfect artist to tell this story as we show readers Damian’s growth, in a new adventure that navigates his legacy, his connections to Batman, Talia al Ghul, and kicks off an important story in the DC Universe.”

A quick synopsis says that Damian will take part in the League of Lazarus tournament to prove he is the best fighter in the world!

I’ll probably check this out. I had some mildly high hopes that Damian was finally moving on from the Robin identity. And I was slightly confused when Tim Drake resumed the mantle. I think DC Comics is ready to crown a new Robin, one who actually works alongside Batman again. But perhaps Damian is a popular character? And he’s got such a strong presence is multi-media.

Still, I think a really strong push for a new Robin would be perfect for this Infinite Frontiers thing. Do it fresh, like Tim Drake back in the late 80s. But perhaps that’s just me.

While We’re on the Topic of Cyberpunk, Honestly…

Let us say goodbye to Cyberpunk 2077 with an Honest Games Trailer! And, obviously, they let the game have it.

Honestly, again, I had a great time with Cyberpunk 2077 on my Playstation 4 Slim. I didn’t go for the refund. It worked for me and I had fun. Simple as that. I’m disappointed that there’s not enough in the game to warrant a second playthrough, where I can do things a little better and smarter. But my mishmash first character was cool and I’d say I got my money’s worth.

But there was a big sale on PS4 games this holiday season, and I’ve got the likes of Ghosts of Tsushima to finally play…
