6 Things I Want to See in Andor

The first three episodes of Andor arrived on Disney+ today and I can’t wait to watch! The trailers have looked very promising and I have high hopes, more so than most other Star Wars TV shows. I always found it strange that Cassian Andor should get his own TV show, but here we are and we can only hope for the best.

Rebellions are built on hope

I’m loving The Mandalorian as much as everybody else, and I can’t wait to watch Ahsoka. But The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi were both pretty mediocre. Will Andor be better? I love the tone we got in the trailers, of an actual hardcore, gritty war drama. Will the show live up to that tone? I surely hope so.

Join me after the jump for what I hope to get in the Andor TV show! And feel free to share your hopes, dreams and reviews of the first three episodes in the comments!

Pokemon or Tem Tem?

I’m once again at a video game crossroads. I’ve been playing the heck out of Total War: Warhammer 3, and I might just keep playing that. The next new video game I want to get doesn’t come out until the end of October, and I probably need a Playstation 5 to play it (which I might not get). Then God of War: Ragnarok in early November, which can be played on a PS4, but should it?

Finally, Pokemon Violet and Scarlet come out in mid-November. I definitely have the Nintendo Switch to play it. But what do I play until then?

I’ve really been eyeing this game Tem Tem on Steam. It’s a pretty solid Pokemon knock-off that seems pretty fun. Might that last me until mid-November? I haven’t done much research at all into that game, unlike the research I do playing new Pokemon games. So for the first time ever, I could go into a monster catching game with no knowledge of what monsters I’ll encounter or their final evolutions.

It’s very tempting…I just gotta be willing to spend that money…

Oh yeah, and all the new stuff introduced in that new Pokemon trailer looks neat. It’s more of the basic Pokemon stuff, but that’s exactly what I want in the new open world playstyle. Give me the open world, but the normal Pokemon track, and hopefully that should be really fun.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/17/22

Good news, everybody! I have for sure survived my bout with COVID-19. It’s been a terrible two weeks, but I’m down to just the smallest of head congestion symptoms now. Suffice to say, it was pretty crappy having COVID. And just my luck to get it long after the pandemic has settled down around the world.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Dark Spaces: Wildfire #3 for another excellent part of this creative heist tale.

Time to actually fight a fire!

Meanwhile, I’m on the verge of buying Temtem, the knock-off Pokemon game that finally had its full release this month. The game looks tempting, but the knock-off nature is a little unappealing. But then I’ve got no other games coming out until the end of October, and even then I’ll need to finally buy a Playstation 5. So I’m just not sure what to do!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #9, Dark Spaces: Wildfire #3, Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #5 and Jurassic League #5.

I’m Probably Gonna Need to Get a Playstation 5 for God of War: Ragnarok

The time has come, once again, in my unfortunate life, wherein I’ll probably need to buy a new gaming console. My PC is getting old and all the new games need the fancy new generation. But Playstation 5s are still hard to find! Why is that?! It’s been, like, three years? Why can’t I just go to Best Buy and get a Playstation 5? Stupid world.

Anyway, check out this awesome new trailer for God of War: Ragnarok.

Looks great. But it also looks great on a Playstation 5! How else am I going to play this? I know I can get it for my Playstation 4…but should I? Shouldn’t I just upgrade? Gotham Knights isn’t going to have a Playstation 4 version. Or maybe I’ll just wait. Pokemon Violet comes out that same month and I’ve got a Nintendo Switch that works.

I guess I’m just going to have to wait and see what fate has in store for me on Nov. 9.

6 Jedi Who Could Use Some Tales

The new animated Star Wars show Tales of the Jedi was announced this past weekend at D23 and it looks promising. I’ve always wanted to see some of the adventures of the young Qui-Gon Jinn and Count Dooku. Because why not? Could be an interesting time period.

Baby Ahsoka merch incoming

And because I’m still sick at home with COVID, I wanted an easy List of Six. So here are some other Jedi who, I think, deserve some tales of their own. Let’s check out their younger years, see what they were up to. What kind of mischief did they engage in? What life-altering decisions were made? What galaxy-spanning mischief occurred? We’ll only know when they get around to these six Jedi!
