Guild bounty hunters hunt bounties and stuff.

I like it so far.

I am reminded of Firefly - (2002 show).

Yet another MMO, but this one is set in the Star Wars universe. Because light sabres, yo.

Conclusion: Amateur night.

This would have been great in the late nineties. Right now, the voiceovers are fantastic but the quest interactive cutscenes are ugly. The choices are sometimes vague and unforgiving. There is spectacular effort with all the rendered videos, but that just took away from resources for the game itself.

A space-western with a motley down-and-out crew struggling on the edge of a semi-dystopian planet-spanning civilization.

Easily one of the best television shows I've ever seen. I don't just consider this mandatory, I will dog people to watch it. I bought two copies of this series just to give one away.

Let me stress this. This is a series so good that even after cancellation there was enough popularity to produce a movie. A movie for a cancelled series. The only one I've ever heard of. Serenity - (2005 movie) is itself mandatory viewing for those who have enjoyed Firefly.

Mandatory viewing. I have been brought to tears more than once.

  • Continues with Serenity - (2005 movie)

    • Serenity uses the same characters in the same world, but is not meant to progress story arcs from the series.

I don't know that I'd recommend this for people who haven't seen the Firefly TV series, but for those who have seen and liked the series this film becomes mandatory viewing, though only after a long while after watching the series. Is this movie any good? Well I liked it just fine.

just a placeholder

Don't watch this, see Star Wars II.I - Attack of the Phantom - (2001 movie) instead. Even at a lower quality it's.. well it's better I guess.

Make sure you have Star Wars - Episode III - Revenge of the Sith[doesn't exist] lined up to watch immediately after.

Do not watch this!

Instead watch the fan edit Star Wars Episode I.II - The Phantom Edit - (2000 movie). Even at its much lower quality it's head and shoulders above this movie.
