We just can’t help it, we’re geeked out Battlefront 2! This episode is big on gaming: the Council discusses the new video game in depth. Is it worth the price? What about the controversial “pay to win” mechanic? How has the gameplay changed from the original? JT also gives his review of the tie-in book, “Inferno Squad” by Christie Golden.
Ciao, Herders! Force Friday 2 turned out to be a debacle for your intrepid Council members, and we recount the events on this episode. But first, we can’t help but pontificate on the meaning of Colin Trevorrow’s exit as director of Episode 9. What’s so hard about getting along with Kathleen Kennedy anyway??
Hello again, Star Wars faithful! The Council decided to take a break from movie talk this time, choosing instead to focus on Star Wars books! “Star Wars: Thrawn” leads off our discussion, and then we tangent into character arcs throughout the saga. How much can a character change throughout the story before it goes from interesting to inconsistent?? As always, we have the answer.
Not much happening in Star Wars this week, which is rare! We look ahead to the rest of 2017 and discuss the major events coming up on the Star Wars calendar – and there are a LOT: Rebels, Celebration, Force Friday, The Last Jedi, comics, books, video games… it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan!
Welcome back for another fantastic episode of The Nerfherder Council! We’re making friends on this episode, talking with another relative newcomer to the Star Wars podcasting scene: Blabba the Hutt!
