Star Wars Legacy # 12 – Vong are the saviors of the Jedi? May 28, 2007

I seem to remember the Jedi helping to chase the Vong out of the galaxy..true Jacen Solo (now Darth Caedus) did have a thing for the world brain on Coruscant though..

Now apparently the Vong are the keepers of the Jedi legacy.

In any case Star Wars Legacy issue #12 is yet another awesome issue in a series that just doesn’t disappoint. We learn a bit more about Cade, but alot about the Vong and their interaction with the Jedi in this issue.

The only ‘dumb’ thing is Cade deciding to go to Coruscant at the end of the issue – of course he’s going to get captured by Krayt – what kind of plot setup is that? i mean COME ON. Unless of course Krayt is really Cade’s uncle/ancestor and he’s using some Force trick to call him to Corsucant.

In any case a great issue – and i’m looking forward to issue #13.

*OHHH and before i forget. R2D2?! REally? After all these years R2D2 IS BACK!! (wonder when we’ll see C3PO?)

FINALLY.

Cade Skywalker returns and with him one of the best Legacy stories in a while (not that the issue 10 wasn’t great..but this one was over the top). Oh and the incomparable art of Jan Duursema returns too…

VADER.

Mara Jade.

THE FREAKIN VONG!!!

They all make an appearance in this issue that finally sees Cade return to the Jedi, to Ossus and to his destiny. His former bounty hunter pals get captured by Krayt’s empire too so the threads of this story are rapidly converging..as Cade seeks his Jedi heritage and the rest of universe is out looking for Cade.

What’s the deal with the Vong?

Will they side with the Jedi and/or Emperor Fel to overturn the Sith? Are they out to destroy the Jedi? the Imperial Remnant on Bastion?? Who knows?!? All I know is that it adds another dimension to an already wickedly cool comic book storyline.

Awesome story..AWESOME ART that is beyond compare. Legacy continues to impress and exceed all expectations.

AND only 4 more issues until the truth is revealed about who Darth Krayt really is.

I had been waiting for this book for months and bought it the day it hit the shelves . It was worth the wait.

Another awesome chapter in the Star Wars saga but then again what else should any of us expect?

At this point these books are written to a formula:
• crisis,
• escape from crisis,
• move to next crisis from multiple points
• escape from final crisis while leaving breadcrumbs for the next crisis to open the next book.

The best part of this book for me was likely, Exile’s first escape from crisis which occurs as Han, Leia, Corrran , Wedge and family escape from Correlia as Wedge resigns from the Correlian military.

Overall this installment in the Star Wars Legacy of the Force moreso than any other yet is all about plot progression as opposed to any sort of deeper character development. Not that there is anything wrong with that. This book is all about action and plenty of it.

With Correlia and its allies in an all out war against the Alliance one could hardly expect the book to just be about a bunch of diplomats talking.

Only in the final pages of the final chapter do we see some deeper character development in Jacen as he continues his decent into the dark side. Lumiya tells him that he must choose his Sith name and his sacrifice. Not coincidentally Sacrifice is the name of the next installment in this series. The Darth Who contest should also be wrapped up then so we’ll definitely know Jacen’s Sith name too and I’d expect Lucas to go all out on promotions.

Star Wars Legacy of the Force Exile is a raucous page turning, swashbuckling adventure that I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend. If you haven’t yet indulged in the Legacy of the Force Series you should, the previous books (Betrayal , Bloodlines and Tempest) are all great …and the next one is likely to be even better. I can’t wait to see ‘Darth Solo’ in action!

Just came across this vid (on YouTube of course).

Who needs ‘Lola’ when you can see Weird Al singing ‘Yoda’ live. Great song but at least half the fun with this vid is the audience reactions – fanboy central!!

Today is the day. Star Wars Legacy of the Force Exile hits the shelves TODAY.

I’ve written about this book before, it’s one i’ve been waiting for…It’s the fourth book in the series (So far there have been three previous Star Wars Legacy of the Force books (Betrayal , Bloodlines and Tempest). At the end of Tempest the Solos (Han and Leia) were on the run, now we’ll find out how far they went.

We won’t however likely find out Jacen Solo’s Sith name. The contest for that was not wrapped up prior to publication so i don’t see anyway how Jacen could take his Sith name in this book.

It might happen in the next one though which is titled, “Sacrifice” which is expected to be released in June of this year.

I’ll start reading this tonight and will post a full review in a week or so when i’m done.

Star Wars : The Force Unleashed Lucas’ next great game February 21, 2007

forceunleashed.jpgNo it’s not KOTOR III. But yes it is the next greatest thing to happen to Star Wars Gaming.

LucasArts has announced a November shipping date for Star Wars The Force Unleashed which should be available for Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and PSP. It is unclear whether a Wii version is in the cards.

LucasArts is claiming that the new game will introduce all kinds of new gaming innovations – as well as a new playable dark lord wannabe.

The Star Wars saga continues this November in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a videogame developed by LucasArts, which casts players as Darth Vader’s “Secret Apprentice” and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi – and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.

Lightsaber crashes against lightsaber in a battle between Jedi and Sith that marks a crucial turning point in the fate of the galaxy! The life of a central figure hangs in the balance, triggering Cade Skywalker to make a shocking choice that will challenge everything he’s fought so hard to protect, and start him down a path from which he can never return. The stakes are higher than ever before in the Star Wars universe-be there as the future of this epic saga is revealed!

I’ve been a loyal reader of Legacy since issue O. By far and away this is the best issue of Legacy yet – and that is saying alot.

Action, plot, fantastic art – this issue has got it all.

As the end of the first major story arc in Star Wars Legacy it is a fitting conclusion and a natural end. Cade makes his choice and as the cover of the issue implies he follows his destiny. I’m a little surprised he left his pirate buddies behind on Bastion but no doubt Ostrander will find a way in his brilliant script to reconnect them and i suspect that the next time they’ll be an opposing end of a blaster and/or lightsaber.
