This ‘Knights of the Old Republic’ Compilation Is Better Than the Entire Sequel Trilogy

The Sequel Trilogy had its ups but it had a whole lot downs. The Force Awakens brought Star Wars back with flying colors. The Last Jedi divided the fandom in two. The Rise of Skywalker underwhelmed the fandom greatly and honestly, if it wasn’t for The Mandalorian, my faith in Star Wars would be dead.

Now…do you want to know what the best Star Wars content in the last decade has been? No, it’s not the material under Disney. It is the trailers for the Knights of the Old Republic PC game which tell a story so epic that I’ve watched it regularly for the last ten years.

It may be twenty-four minutes long but this compilation of trailers may just be the best thing you’ve seen all day. Check it out.

While watching these cinematic trailer masterpieces I found myself once again getting mad at Disney.

Why is Marvel Studios so successful? Because Kevin Feige realized he had a treasure trove of epic Marvel comics and storylines that he could adapt to the big screen.

Lucasfilm has a treasure trove of emotional, deep, profound storytelling in the Old Republic era that for some reason they’re afraid of tackling. Instead, they’ve created this High Republic era that doesn’t seem NEARLY as interesting as this stuff.

I mean, who doesn’t want to see twenty Jedi fighting twenty Sith on an IMAX screen? That sounds like the coolest thing ever!

What do you think? Do you wish LucasFilm would tackle the Old Republic era? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.

The ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ Gameplay Is Amazing

I’m a HUGE gamer. I’ve been one since I was a child. As a little girl, I would play Super Mario Bros, the fighting game Tatsunoko vs. CapcomSuper Smash Bros, and MarioKart until I dropped. I got older and graduated to the XBOX where I’ve played Mortal Kombat XDestiny and Destiny 2Call of Duty: Advanced WarfareRise of the Tomb RaiderAssassins: CreedOverwatch, etc. And then there are the Star Wars games.

On my Nintendo Wii, I had Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and I LOVED it!

Starkiller in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
Yeah, the graphics are pretty terrible looking now. This game was made a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

The Force Unleashed is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and follows the story of Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, a man named Galen Marek, who is the son of a Jedi Darth Vader killed. Galen, at first Darth Vader’s lead assassin who hunted down and killed rogue Jedi, turned against his master and tried to set on his own path.

It’s a really interesting story that is SUPER fun to play. Leia makes a surprise cameo which is fun. The game also had a two-player duel option where you can face off against a friend and fight with the iconic characters of the game such as Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, etc. My sister and I would always play with Anakin and Obi-Wan Skywalker, hence recreating our own duel between them. 🙂

But after The Force Unleashed, I haven’t played any other Star Wars games except for the Lego Star Wars games and the MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic, making my excitement for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order that much more special for me.

‘Destiny 2’: The ‘Curse of Osiris’ Expansion

I’ve been obsessed with the game Destiny 2 for the past few months because it is one of the best games I have ever played. At the beginning of this month the first expansion for Destiny 2 came out and I have to say, it is incredible. Here’s the official game trailer for it.

Yeah, it’s an epic trailer. The creators over at Bungie have become really good at making their cinematic story line engaging and a blast to watch. I was one of the first people to get on the Destiny bandwagon back in 2014 and it has become much more enjoyable than it was then.

So, I bought the expansion and immediately went to try it out and was instantly drawn in by the story and the vibrancy of the new world. Destiny was the most beautiful game I had ever played and Destiny 2 is even prettier! When the Curse of Osiris expansion came out I was hoping it would be a worthy addition to the already massive story that Destiny 2 had and it absolutely was.

As you try to save this expansion’s new character, Osiris, from the mysterious world of Mercury you embark on an epic quest that takes you into Mercury’s glorious past, future, and present while you fight off the annoying pests, the Vex, throughout your adventures.

There are new dungeons, new mulitplayer maps, a brand new raid to explore, and most importantly, lots of new armor and weapons to acquire. I’m still trying to finish all of the content that came with Destiny 2 but Curse of Osiris is a fabulous add-on to this already wonderful game.

My Conclusion of Curse of Osiris

Now, if you’re wondering if this expansion has a lot of content unfortunately there isn’t. The story would take about, I’d say, three hours to complete if you go through it all at once with at least one snack break but because I just can’t get away from the fun competitive multiplayer I still haven’t completed the story yet.

One of my favorite things about the Destiny games are their music and Curse of Osiris does not disappoint. The theme for this new expansion is Ancient Egyptian-oriented and the music sounds that way too. As you’re running through the gorgeous world of Mercury, the massive Egyptian themed structures towering around you and the massive sun glowing on the planet’s horizon, it really provides a euphoria that I’ve rarely experienced with other games.

Destiny 2 is not only a blast to play but can also be therapeutic at times and this new expansion only increases that happiness that I get when I play this game.

I would definitely give the expansion, Curse of Osiris, a 4.7 out of 5 stars and a 9 out of 10. While it is really fun the story isn’t very large and that is always a slight bummer, especially that the next expansion won’t be coming out until next spring. It is very fun though and if you don’t play Destiny I highly recommend that you at least try it. There’s a free trial going on for Destiny 2 right now and if you’re interested in checking it out you won’t be disappointed in the slightest. I know I wasn’t when I tried the free trial for the first Destiny. In fact, I ended up getting the game, that’s how incredible it was.

I thank you for reading my review and I hope you have a beautiful day.  

Assassin’s Creed Returns With A New Game

I was introduced to Assassin’s Creed way back in 2014 when I obtained an XBOX One for the first time. It was part of an amazing package deal that consisted of the XBOX console and two free games. Those games happened to be Assassin’s Creed. It was a great introduction to the console after playing the Wii for years. The versions of Assassin’s Creed they provided were Black Flag and Unity and I was amazed. I still play Black Flag to this day because of its huge world that I still haven’t explored completely, its fun story, and its amazing gameplay. And Assassin’s Creed Unity was breathtakingly beautiful with its realism. The character’s hair and skin texture were incredible. They almost looked real. And the buildings were magnificently detailed. It was set during the French Revolution and it really teleported me to that time and age in our planet’s vast history.

After Unity, however, Assassin’s Creed began to become…kind of boring to play. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate came out two years ago and I couldn’t finish it. Its combat was fun and yes there was a female character to play with but it just didn’t excite me. And then last year they decided to bring out an Assassin’s Creed movie of all things.

Now when I first heard about it I was a little excited. It’s already as if you’re playing a movie in each game so I figured it wouldn’t be as bad a flop as the MMO turned motion picture Warcraft was. Then I heard that the main character was going to be played by Michael Fassbender. I was shocked, and not in a good way. Were they really going to make the guy who played Steve Jobs an assassin? Really? It didn’t sound like good casting. And sure enough, the movie was terrible. I watched it with the hopes that maybe I would be able to enjoy it since I loved the game so much and yes I loved certain elements of the movie, like the action. It was however very, very confusing and by the end, I literally had a headache. Now it was better than Warcraft simply because Warcraft was if not the worst film I have ever seen, it was second to worst but it was pretty horrendous.

So after that obvious fail, I didn’t think Ubisoft would come out with a new game for the Assassin’s series for years. And then it was announced on Sunday that a new Assassin’s Creed would come out this fall in October and I was so excited. Check out this trailer.

Wasn’t that awesome?! One of the reasons I love Assassin’s Creed so much is because of the historic aspect of each game. Now they’re taking us to Ancient Egypt and I am ecstatic. I can’t wait to explore pyramids, face ancient monsters, and just marvel at the incredible beauty of the game. And this new assassin we get to play with is an African! How exciting is that?! I mean look at the picture for this trailer. Isn’t that beautiful?

So yes, I am very excited. Fall is going to be a great time for gamers because of all the amazing games coming out. And if you’re as excited as I am the exact date it’s coming out is October 22 and it’s already available for pre-order. If you do happen to pre-order you’ll get exclusive content which is always a great selling point.

Thank you for reading my post this fine Tuesday. I’ll be posting again, later on, today about the brand new Black Panther debut trailer. You definitely won’t want to miss it.
