Star Wars: Battlefront II Complete Achievement List (Xbox, Playstation, PC – 2017)

Star Wars: Battlefront got a lot of things right in rebooting the franchise, but it focused exclusively on multiplayer, had some balancing issues, and had a limited number of locations and characters.  Battlefront II and ME: Shadow of Mordor will eat the rest of my year.  Exponentially more modes, planets, maps, heroes/villains, plus a single-player campaign that looks to have real information for SW fans about the gap inbetween Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.  The opportunity to mix all three eras, the gorgeous graphics, and-really-because this is something Star Wars, makes this must-buy.  Plus, free The Last Jedi DLC content will start to arrive free for players the first week of December.  If you bought the deluxe version, you’re a go at midnight tonight, but for everyone else, the game will release November 17, 2017, on Xbox One, PC, and PS4.  Achievements and gameplay details below, courtesy of xboxachievements.com.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) TV Spot “LUKE IS ON THE FALCON!!!”

36 DAYS TO GO, PEOPLE!!!  This latest TV spot offers a little new footage, the most significant of which is Luke on the Falcon for the first time in who knows when.  Some people may consider this a spoiler, but …..the ship is on the island…..we know he’s going to get his cranky butt off the island at some point…..THE SHIP IS ALREADY ON THE ISLAND!  It also gives a loot at what appears to be Snoke’s throne room for the first time.  Why isn’t this movie already here????

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past. The film stars Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.

Every Lightsaber Duel From Star Wars: Clone Wars and Rebels!!!

So how bored are you at work this fine Monday?  A YouTube user by the name of James has put together a 90-minute mash-up of all the lightsaber duels from the six seasons of Star Wars: Clone Wars and the first two seasons of Star Wars: Rebels.  I’m kind of happy season three isn’t in here for people who haven’t caught up yet, because season three, for those not in the know, kills off probably the biggest character in SW canon that the animated series have been allowed to slay.  The fight choreography for the duels just keeps getting better as the series age.  My personal favorites are the duel between Maul, Savage Oppress and Emperor Palpatine, and-of course-the epic reunion duel between Ahsoka and Anakin (now Darth Vader) at the close of Rebels season two.  Chill out, check for your boss, and burn the rest of the work day watching lightsaber duels.  The Last Jedi is almost upon us!

POLL RESULT: Favorite Character from Star Wars: Rebels Is…

The Killing Time Community has spoken, and our favorite character from Star Wars: Rebels is everyone’s favorite explosive-obsessed Mandalorian: Sabine Wren.  Voting was neck and neck with Sabine, and the show’s two Jedi: Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger (who finished in a tie for second place) the whole month.  Tying for fifth were the two Rebels we know for sure will survive the show’s final season (as they both have cameos in Rogue One): Captain Hera Syndulla and Chopper.

Grand Admiral Thrawn was the only villain originating from the show to get any votes.  Its proximity to A New Hope has allowed the show to use classic villains like Darth Vader, Grand Moff Tarkin, and-of course-Darth Maul.  Sabine’s win continues a trend of awesome, well-written female characters that have emerged during Disney’s stewardship of Star Wars, and the galaxy far, far away is far better for it.

The fourth and final season of Star Wars: Rebels can be seen on Disney XD.  Thanks for voting, and we’ll have a new poll up in a bit.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi International Trailer #1 “Let the Past Die. Kill It.”

The first international trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is out, and it does have a few new shots for American audiences, but is largely a remixed version of the full trailer we got (click here to watch) earlier this month.  Interestingly, while the domestic trailer starts with and focuses more on Kylo Ren, the international trailer flips and starts with Rey and Luke.  Either way, we’re only six weeks out now from release date, and this movie cannot get here soon enough.
