“Is your neighbor’s domesticated canine keeping you up at night? Well, just dip it in carbonite!” “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…there were infomercials!” Check out this funny video by The Gamer Chick that shares some great infomercials from the Star Wars universe. I know if I came across the “Home Carbonite Kit” while flipping the channels one night that I’d definitely buy one!  It features a geek-filled cast: Bonnie Burton, Adrianne Curry, Grant Imahara and more....

Harrison Ford Star Wars Episode 7 Contract Negotiations

Posted by on Dec 26, 2012 in May the schwartz be with you | 0 comments

These sketches are made by my good friend David Ward and his team over at  HUMORdy are a collection of comedians, actors, and filmmakers from Austin, TX. and they have quite a bit of funny material on youtube already. Check out there youtube channel here if you want a good laugh. Disney bought Lucasfilm for over 4 billion dollars. They immediately announced plans to do a new trilogy of Star Wars films. This is the story of the heroic Disney executives assigned the task of getting Harrison Ford to sign on as Han Solo in the new Star Wars movies. It took they guys  about 5 days to write the scripts, one day to shoot all three, then probably two weeks to edit them. They don’t currently have any more Star Wars parodies planned, but I’m sure we’ll do more in the future. Remember to follow these guys on...

Occupy SWTOR- Angry F2P Gamers Protest F2P Limitations

Posted by on Nov 26, 2012 in SWTOR | 0 comments

Something is asunder in SWTOR, at least that’s what one user who took this screenshot would have us to think. They protested by blocking GTN mailboxes and sending out this message “Occupying GTN mailbox for 2 more quick bars for free to play players!” One major downfall to their plan? All you’re doing is irritating your fellow players. This is not the way to get your way with BioWare but it might be a decent way to get a ban- temporary at very least. Players used to do this in WoW all the time until Blizz started banning for it and putting it more mailboxes all over the major cities so it hardly matters if one idiot wants to get on a huge mount, drink a firewater and sit on the mailbox. But what we can admire from these SWTOR “riots” is their determination and willingness to stand up for something. But are they doing it the right way? This isn’t the first time gamers staged a “riot” in a Star Wars game in order to protest something they felt was unfair. Déjà vu? This reminds us of another similar uprising in Star Wars Galaxy over Wookiee armor. When the game first launched (for those who didn’t play or don’t remember), Wookiees could not wear armor and in the weeks and months that followed, players continued to complain in the forums to no avail. So they ramped it up a notch and staged protests in front of Theed palace on every server at the exact same time, sort of like an in-game flash mob. But all this did was lead to some catastrophic lag on the server, forcing SOE to issue bans to players who refused to disperse. The Real Story We heard the rumor going around SWTOR forums and Reddit so we had to investigate and find out what really happened. Apparently, Reddit got trolled hard this time (see the sweet irony in that?) and this speeders-on-the-mailbox incident really had nothing to do with angry F2P gamers. It was actually a virtual nose-thumbing at one guy, “Ewenn” who had some gamer-rage over a couple of people blocking the mailboxes and didn’t know how to ask nicely. The Alpha Guild posts the image and the actual story to their Facebook page: “Want to get to the GTN mailbox? Ask nicely. The whole fleet responds when Ewenn, the rude one, yells at TheLastDon to move his throne instead of asking nicely. Then confused people like Flashthunder takes a screenshot as he thinks it’s a riot. Juandonde, an Alpha Republic and subber, trolls redditers hard.” And then chaos and confusion reigns. But we definitely got a good giggle out of the whole fiasco as did the guys at The Alpha Guild. Be the 1%! Now that we’ve all had a good laugh over it, the fun continues as “the 1%” jokes around over the made-up protest. Are you the 1% who subs and gets all the goodies? Want to rub it in to the F2Pers faces that you get #5 and #6 quickbars to place all your pets and novelty items? Next time they block those mailboxes, just summon your mail droid next to your on-ship...
