Just finished Clone Wars season six. I may rewatch it in the order that the timeline for the series goes.

I haven't tried Knights yet. I'm waiting for new Lillyhammer, house of cards, and for the Marvel stuff to start.

I just finished Clone Wars as well. It was a nice final story arc but it is a pity it wasn't a full season. And S6 got a little too heavy with the hints of what was to come with Revenge of the Sith.

With how Disney is altering things to allow for more Jedi I do hope Rebels will carry on the tradition of delving into Star Wars lore. True, anything is game to be rewritten, but we all know of plenty of locations and characters that have the potential to be explored more in depth.

I would hope there is some crossover to make it worth it. Maybe give us some overarching achievements like Prime Trilogy did or at least some bonus games.

You are either table 1, 5, or 8.

I got the charm searcher too. You got a specific one you are looking for?

The PS3 version got a $20 retail release that came with a pin, but I don't know what the Wii U's excuse was.

Because they could. Maybe make the case the gamepad enhancements cost more time and resources to produce.

It will probably be budget priced. But knowing Nintendo, that could be anywhere from $20-$40.

Ducktales was $20 while it was, what, $15 online? I could see $15 for one digitally, $25 for two digitally and $30 for the physical copy. Only 3/DS games have launched with non-even MSRP like $35 but it doesn't mean they are opposed to doing it.

I am wondering if there will be any pre-order bonuses with the game. Because of the dual-pack deal and the possibility they may release later editions without the first game I may get this early on.

We know a price point? I wouldn't pay more that $20 for it but I can see Nintendo charging $30-40 because it is two $15 games on a physical disc.

The plot twist is that they are all the same Pokepal, only regenerated.

I might be interested in the retail release. I still need to pick my platinum prize.

It looks intriguing. Let us know how it turns out!

I can plug them in for you this evening if you would like. At work all day so I can't here. Never done it myself but I've read a lot on the subject. I'll should get on it because I want to know at the least my table and what charms are available to me. I might have a pro gunner table because I have a lot more nice gunner charms now that I am dabbling in guns and bows.

How are they getting Quicksilver when he was in X-Men? Did Marvel and Fox come to some arrangement to allow the crossover or will we be seeing a non-Bacon Burger Quicksilver this time around?

I think they realize that everything should not be pinned on the shoulders of one man.

I am optimistic on where they will take the franchise. Now where are our new wave of Star Wars games?

Dr Who is getting cancelled? Or is that exactly your point by "not keeping up with TV"?

Yes, it is dead. I just hope they still use the material in their future projects. This is a nice chance to fix some problems and improve on others. Like I said, I just hope they include the major book characters in some fashion.

Any word on if we are getting any of the Japanese pre-order bonuses? I'd love to get the scarf and Triforce Clock.

Same here. We tried the trial run of bowling and golf over Christmas with the family and everyone enjoyed it enough to make it worth getting for family gatherings. And my dad things the improvements to golf over the original were great.

I am un-surprise.

It's already been for sale through the console for a while. Couple that with the sluggishness of the Wii U and consoles in general in Japan makes for an unfortunate sales turn out. Plus I believe the motion/sportsgames fad has wound down anywhere that is not a retirement community. It will not have the clout it once had again methinks.

You could dabble in Charm Sniping to determine what "charm table" your character has. As I am in the market for gathering resources I will gladly go on mining expeditions if you want a buddy.

Might be able to play a bit tonight but it will be later as I have a night class that gets out 6 hours from now.

Should have ordered early. I ordered Sunday afternoon. I am getting the items in three separate packages which makes sense if they are shipped from stores and stock was low everywhere.

I ordered a Pro controller, Link Between Worlds and Yoshi's New Island for my sister because we agreed to go in together and split the costs. I do wish that the black Pros were on sale as well because I would have gotten one of those too. I did almost buy two white ones but I'll wait for another sale for the rest.

I was more picky about my armors in Ultamate compared to Tri on the Wii. Mayne it was because I was a little wiser about how things worked but I got Jaggi armor and then went straight to Rathalos gear on High and then Azure Rath on G rank. I then made my Silver Rath set to be my main post-game set. I don't feel like making too many different sets now as between Azure and Silver G I seem to be fine. I am considering a Zynogre/Stygian Z set but would rather focus my effort on gunner armor.

I currently am working on a Wroggi-G set because I like the cowboy look. Will complete some sort of Rath armor as well though I have not decided the color. Post Wroggi gear the priority will be more of a weapon development focus for Light Bowgun and Bows.

Bumping the Star Wars thread as I stated I would in the movie/TV thread. I forgot that the novels were realigning this September as well. I guess I should wrap up the old novels. I'm hoping they allowed the Fate of the Jedi series to wrap up before doing this. Would hate to see the series get cut off as I was quite enjoying where it was going.

There was also that Legacy comic series that took place with Luke's great-grandson 100+ years after return of the Jedi. I never finished that. I liked where the series was going and watching the novels as they set up the framework for the Legacy series with Imperial Jedi, Sith and Alliance Jedi. It was like force wielders were the knight class of every major faction so it was allowing for more story potential.

I'm not going to be a stickler for them changing events between the legacy material and new works but I do hope they keep some semblance of continuity and the characters.

By continuity I mean keeping the general flow of the story where rebels fight to overcome the Empire post-Return of the Jedi until the formation of the New Republic and then move towards the Yuuzhan Vong invasion and deal eventually with the 'Jedi-Legacy' issues in some way.

By characters I just want to see most of the major and sub-major book characters make a return. Especially Han, Leia and Luke's kids. They can have more if Disney wants, but at least maintain the current ones in some fashion. Especially Jason Solo and his fall to the dark side.

For changes, I truly hope that they allow Thrawn to play a huge role in the series and not allow him to be killed off so easily.

The extended trailer for Star Wars: Rebels.

It looks good and it really echoes the OT or more importantly a new hope. I'm guessing all the star wars film rumors about Luke are wrong hence why we have a book and a series that's introducing new force wielders. Either that and the rumors are true and we don't see the creation of the NJO until the end of episoide 7.

edit: If were making a DC thread should we do another Star Wars one as well.

This does look to be a good series. I'll keep an eye out for it. It does have a bit more of that 'tween Disney' feel to it in the dialogue but hopefully that was cherry picked out of numerous episodes to appeal especially to Disney's target demographic.

There already is a Star Wars thread. We'll have to do dig it up. I'll go bump it.

Bow can be quite effective when played right. I'm not there yet but judging from videos I've seen online it is achievable.
