Adventures of the NGE

The goal of this blog is to intrest ALL gamers and MMOers into Star Wars Galaxies, whether they are/were/aren't playing. I will prove SWG's true worth by showing off the NGE's innovative new features/content that rebuild the population on a daily basis.

Hello world!!
Star Wars Galaxies's NGE has fascinated us striving players (still playing) since the ultimate SOE let-down back in 2005, and my goal of blogging on MMORPG.com is to introduce the great wonders Star Wars Galaxies has presented so far. Well instead of discussing SWG this time, I'm going to talk about the new Star Wars movie that's about to hit theaters later this month.

T
he new Clone Wars movie;

You all know it -- it's an animated movie directed at the children's appeal.
Crazed b
loggers and posters alike have claimed that the movie has a "horrible graphical style" and a "Disney Channel-like humor", therefore it sucks. LOL

I have to admit, the first time I saw the trailer on TV, it felt a little too much like it was one of those new Cartoon Network shows, and laughed to myself. 
Then I wondered, "So....Where was Anakin in all of that ZOMG??"
I eventually found out that Anakin was the guy with the Runescape hairdo, but I also realized that I really wanted to see this movie.

Not only because I think that "you aren't a fan unless you can love it all", or because I don't care what the heck kind of approach they put onto the Expanded Universe, but because this movie is the future for the younger audiences as well. This was probably one of the smartest marketing ideas ever: to aim Star Wars at families, moms (which is working), and expand it further among young children (which is seriously working).
 


Even if I didn't love the approach they put into this movie at first, it doesn't mean that they failed at all.
I still think the fact that it's Star Wars is good enough for me to enjoy it.

EDIT: I just saw it and loved it, all Star Wars fans old and new definately should not pass this one up. The commercials don't do it good.

They are rekindling the love of Star Wars in a newer generation, or trying to. I agree and approve. I just wish Lucas would smack the crap out of the people in LA & SOE into actually cared about the genre instead of $$$.

You have that part backwards. the NGE is pathetic. The original was better, buggy as shit, but better. NGE is crap.

As long as it's not the same dumb stuff we saw in the real movies.

The "new generation" of Star Wars fans already had their movies. They were Episode 1-3.

TIme for something for the old school fans. Give us Episodes 7-10!

Give us a grown-ups version of Star Wars.

While I am excited about the feature length animated Clone War movie I haven't liked the "feel" of it from the previews I have seen. It seems too childish to me. I am hoping that isn't the case.

And with regards for something for us old school, origional trilogy fans: It is past time for a live action movie of Timothy Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy.
