Star Wars: Rebels has grown on me over the years, so I’m a little sad that next fall’s fourth season will be it’s last.
But hey, we all knew this couldn’t last forever. There couldn’t still be Jedi hanging around when Luke Skywalker arrives on the scene. So is the fourth season gonna get really dark? Will we see the Battle of Scarif from the Rebels’ perspective? Will Ahsoka return?
Guess we’re gonna find out!
So, uh, I kind of went a little overboard with the reviews this week, everybody. Sorry about that. It just so happens that a metric ton of my favorite Marvel comics all come out on the same day, and I didn’t want to skip over any of them! So be prepared for everything from Amazing Spider-Man to Unstoppable Wasp to Mosaic to the final issue of Power Man and Iron Fist! Plus I wanted to try out a couple more ResurrXion comics.
Fortunately, this week also delivered one of the best issues of Silver Surfer yet, an easy Comic Book of the Week! That comic is magical! Silver Surfer #10 combines tragic romance with all my favorite bits of Silver Surfer mythology, making for a wonderful issue.
Meanwhile, I really, really, really want to get back into reading more DC Comics. Now that Gotham Academy is coming to an end and Greg Rucka is leaving Wonder Woman, I’m going to try to get caught up on those two series so I can review them through the end.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #26, Detective Comics #954, Mosaic #7, Power Man and Iron Fist #15, Silver Surfer #10, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #19, Unstoppable Wasp #4, Weapon X #1 and X-Men Blue #1.
God bless you if my little ol’ blog is the place you come for all your pop culture news. Otherwise, I’m going to assume everybody has already seen the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Here’s your chance to watch it again! Or your excuse to do so!
I dug it. Definitely like Luke’s line of thinking. Good direction to take a Star Wars movie. And I wanna make that shot of Rey practicing with her lightsaber on the mountain said into my desktop wallpaper.
Star Wars: Episode IX is totally happening in December, so we might as well all get hyped now.
I wasn’t totally sold on this How It Should Have Ended for Logan, but they won me over in the end.
I didn’t realize what they were singing at first, but when they went into the huge ensemble Les Mis-style musical number, they had me. Then Deadpool in a DeLorean was neat. Though I continue to insist that the Batman/Superman cafe callbacks are not nearly as funny as these guys think they are. I’m here for the alternate endings, not the in jokes.
I beat Mass Effect: Andromeda the other day and I felt like saying a few words. It’s an OK game, though I don’t think I’d recommend it to anyone who hasn’t played a Mass Effect game before. Not that you need to have played the original trilogy, but it helps if you’ve already got an interest in the series.
Here’s an Honest Trailer for Andromeda.
The game was exactly what I wanted when I bought it: a big, deep, enjoyable action RPG that I could spend time playing. Tons of side quests, lots of dialogue options, a pretty solid create-a-character and enough action to keep me mildly entertained. I got my money’s worth, and I’m looking forward to any upcoming DLCs or sequels, especially if they carry over my current main character and playthrough like they did with the previous trilogy.
But like I said, if you’re not already into the series, I can’t really recommend it. None of the quests or plots or characters or romances or weapons or villains or pretty much anything was all that exciting or memorable. I kind of just went through the motions on Mass Effect: Andromeda, which was enough for me.
If you’ve played the game and want to hear some of my decisions and story choices, join me after the jump!
