star wars (the original movies) in a whole new light

 I am one of those people who love the prequels. Sure jar-jar is annoying, but he serves his purpose. But other than that, the 3 prequels are a rollercoaster ride of thrilling action, murderous plots and an extremely gloomy ending to a series that has always been cheery-funtastically-happy-go-lucky.

The only thing that bothered me so damned much about them. where the canyon wide plot holes, when you see all 6 movies in a row.
From 3-4 it almost seems as if it is not the same series. For example the old guy in the death star that tells Vader something in the lines of "nobody believes in your ancient religion anymore" ... ancient? when he himself was a young man, that religion was the peace-keepers of the entire frikking universe.
Anyway I've finally found someone who was able to get it all to make sense.
And it places Chewbacca and R2D2 in much more important roles, than anyone of us could ever imagine.

Here is the link, I haven't been able to determine whether or not this is the original, but its the one I read.

Yes, I am aware this is a "read-this-cool-link" post. But it is not as if WoW has anything all that exciting going on atm.

As a matter of fact, I am willing to bet that they are way behind schedule on Cata. Beta has never been this unfinished before, when it was launched to be public. I think that they opened beta up, because they have no other 'content' to throw at people. And by the looks of it, I highly doubt we will see Cata before 2011, conveniently close to the launch of SW:tOR.
Blizzard have a long history of fucking over their competition like this. LotRO, WARhammer, Conan, its all just history repeating itself. More and more Blizzard is looking like a company who -on purpose- withholds content untill there is someone threatning their core audiences.
That is fine, but then they shouldn't give us that crap about how it's all about making great games, and these games are ready when they are ready. When in fact it is all about co**blocking other fun games, from us.

Bro's Don't C**kblock bro's, just ask Barney Stinson.

OH SNAP. The bro code is on youtube - Gotta say, that is one funny book. Best read this year. Read it with friends.

  2. That still doesn't make the "ancient religion" line work... but it's still a pretty cool article. Thanks for sharing!
