This week Liore and Arolaide are joined by special guests Aurelia and Corranhorn to talk about all things Star Wars.
The Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic debuted a few weeks ago, and Aro and Aure have been playing it like crazy. They give the rest of the crew a spoiler-free review of the new story and mechanics, and talk about the big changes to the companion system. Corr puts the new plot in context with the rest of general Star Wars lore, and gives a game-centric (mild) spoiler for the upcoming movie. Liore spends the conversation being mildly baffled. She remains this way for the rest of the episode.
Going from games to movies, Corr has watched the latest trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie a mere two dozen-ish times and he (along with Aro) nerds out about space lore, including how to identify specific editions of Luke’s lightsaber. Aure and Liore ask Corr to confront his feelings about the expunging of all of the Extended Universe content from Star Wars canon, and he is actually quite sensible about it.
Also, Liore has no time for sex robots! Aro’s weesters were adorable for Halloween! Aure didn’t realize that Banished was supposed to be hard! Corr buys a PS4.. for more Star Wars!
