Well, I mean taking forever to gain new weapons and customization as well. I mean the game itself is fun and I've put countless hours into it.

I've also heard with the whole George Lucas declaring the Expanded Universe as not canon is half right. The expanded universe AFTER Return of the Jedi is non canon. Everything else including the Old Republic, Republic Commandos, Force Unleashed is technically canon.
User avatar #919225 - adunsaveme (05/11/2014) [-]
good thing, too
User avatar #919215 - hirollin (05/11/2014) [-]
Well yeah, after return of the jedi storylines were garbage. You can't have Luke going to the dark side for a period of time and not expect the creator to say that doesn't happen. Goes agains the entire motif of the story.
User avatar #919218 - themarineelite (05/11/2014) [-]
But the Thrawn Confederation, the Yuuzhan Vong, Palpatine's Dark Empire, Abeloth, Fel Empire, Darth Krayt's Sith Empire. I can't let that go. IT'S ALL TOO AWESOME.
User avatar #919219 - hirollin (05/11/2014) [-]
There will be new awesome things probably. Gotta look ahead. It's Star Wars not Star Gate. It can only probably get better.
User avatar #919220 - themarineelite (05/11/2014) [-]
For Lucas's sake it better. I'm just questioning if he will take the characters such as Skywalker's and Solo's children into consideration in the new movies.
User avatar #919222 - hirollin (05/11/2014) [-]
assuming you want that. the next generation of awesome worked for star trek, hasn't worked for any other sci fi i can remember off hand. should probably scrub those characters altogether and focus on new guys that aren't related
User avatar #919223 - themarineelite (05/11/2014) [-]
The quality of the new Star Trek movies were questionable with a bunch of people, myself included. My opinion was one big MEH.
User avatar #919224 - hirollin (05/11/2014) [-]
No, I meant Picard.
I didn't mean the new movies
New movies sucked huge cock.
User avatar #919227 - themarineelite (05/11/2014) [-]
OHHHH. Hopefully it could turn out like that.
User avatar #919228 - hirollin (05/11/2014) [-]
it won't. that was a one time thing.

if they focus on the chilrens at least.


if you think that instead of Picard they had a 20 something captain playing Kirks son do you think it would have done so well? Fuck no, they would just compare him to kirk and he would be universally hated by everyone. same with star wars. you get a lil solo and they will be comparing him to big solo and guess what big solo was better. big solo was in Sabrina and airforce one and you can't compete with that.
User avatar #919229 - themarineelite (05/11/2014) [-]
Can't forget about Indiana Jones Honestly if Lucas decides to take it away from the timeline in the novels and comics it could go in any direction, which I'm a little freaked out about.

He won't. Disney will.

Sadly Kyle Katarn doesn't exist as part of the main universe. Neither does Mara Jade.
User avatar #919384 - huntergriff (05/11/2014) [-]
actually, if what you said above about it being half right, kyle's iteration in the first dark forces game could be canon, since it takes place between a new hope and empire.
User avatar #919209 - mechaemperor (05/11/2014) [-]
It's a shame, when the games and novels in the EU did so much for the lore and sense of wonder for the franchise and they get discarded as if nothing.
User avatar #919211 - themarineelite (05/11/2014) [-]
I know. I'm glad they took SOME things from the EU and put it in the Expanded Universe, such as Darth Bane, and the Delta Squad from Republic Commandos.

User avatar #919139 - huntergriff (05/11/2014) [-]
honestly...battlefield and battle front are pretty fucking similar in and of itself, It's no surprise that they gave it to DICE.
User avatar #919140 - sonnyboii (05/11/2014) [-]
I just really hope it will be good and fun, and not some pointsfest
User avatar #919142 - huntergriff (05/11/2014) [-]
I have faith, I mean...they're playing with fire here...if they fuck it up as bad as BF4, or sim city 4, then you can bet your sweet ass that a shit ton of people are going to be extremely pissed...and if that happens, disney's most likely going to drop them from producing more star wars games...but again, that's only if they manage to fuck it up tremendously.
User avatar #919146 - sonnyboii (05/11/2014) [-]
Even though it will be shit (Battlefront/star wars way) it wont "fail"
Too many people loving DICE and everything they do. Theres just too much with them and EA to make people "hate it"
User avatar #919153 - huntergriff (05/11/2014) [-]
regardless, if this turns out to be another sim city 4 or diablo 3 or BF4 scenario, disney's probably going to drop EA.
User avatar #919143 - themarineelite (05/11/2014) [-]
As long as EA doesn't fuck with deadlines like they did with Battlefield 4 and let DICE do their thing, they SHOULD be fine.

I dont really know how to say it but thats a shit excuse
If you dont like the core game you SHOULDNT like a reskin

Id be happy with a 2014 version BATTLEFRONT. Im so sure we will have so many goddamned DLCs, weapon "upgrades" and "mods" microtransactions..
Points all over...
Theres so many shit things about Battlefield id hate to see in this

but not VERY MUCH

Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with a Star Wars Themed battlefield style game. As long as they had some of the fun classes they did in the last Battlefront games. Clone Commanders, Dark Troopers, Wookie Warriors etc.

They never mention him not being one either. HE could be an ARC commander since he is the Commanding officer of the 501st at the time, which according to the wiki state that instead of being Alpha class Troopers, The ARC commanders were regular clones who underwent ARC training by Alpha-17. The one thing that undermines this theory is that he is wearing a Blue Shoulder plate which is the rank of a Lieutenant, but the Unit colors of the 501st is Blue so I don't know what to think about that.

i'm honestly surprised he wasn't, but...then again, they wanted to make alpha 17 from the republic comic, but they changed it to rex due to the alliteration from ahsoka, anakin, artoo, and the 4th would have been alpha.

Cody had the same training, as did bacara, neyo, and gree...Not one of those clones are arc troopers.

also this. In June 2008, initial merchandising promotional material for the television series indicated that Rex was an Advanced Recon Commando,[310] but that rank was never repeated in subsequent material and is therefore assumed to be an error. Furthermore, Rex was listed as a clone commander in Star Wars Insider 103's The Clone Wars: A Who's Who Guide,[311] the Jedi Alliance Prima Official Game Guide,[312] the Wizards of the Coast sourcebook The Clone Wars Campaign Guide,[14] The Clone Wars Activity Annual: Summer Edition 2009,[313] The Official Starships & Vehicles Collection 43,[314] and the Encyclopedia entry for Saleucami,[315] among other media. Part 2 of The Official Star Wars Fact File remake referred to Rex as a sergeant on one occasion,[15] with the error being repeated when a revised issue was released.[316] Nevertheless, in all other Star Wars material, Rex is portrayed as a clone captain, which this article reflects.

CT-7567 was a veteran clone trooper captain who led the Grand Army of the Republic's acclaimed 501st Legion during the Clone Wars. Bred and trained on Kamino, 7567 entered into Republic service at the Battle of Geonosis in 22 BBY. He gained respect as an honorable commander from Jedi officers and clone troopers alike, becoming known as one of the best and toughest clone troopers in the Grand Army. 7567 was even selected for special command training under Advanced Recon Commando Alpha-17, following which he took the nickname "Rex.

Furthermore, Rex was listed as a clone commander in Star Wars Insider 103's The Clone Wars: A Who's Who Guide,[311] the Jedi Alliance Prima Official Game Guide,[312] the Wizards of the Coast sourcebook The Clone Wars Campaign Guide,[14] The Clone Wars Activity Annual: Summer Edition 2009,[313] The Official Starships & Vehicles Collection 43,[314] and the Encyclopedia entry for Saleucami,[315] among other media. Part 2 of The Official Star Wars Fact File remake referred to Rex as a sergeant on one occasion,[15] with the error being repeated when a revised issue was released.[316] Nevertheless, in all other Star Wars material, Rex is portrayed as a clone captain, which this article reflects.

I refuse to believe that Rex would kill anakin if he was ordered to

I do to, but he wasn't in command of the 501st at the time of Revenge of the Sith, Commander Appo was. So I guess we'll never know.

Alot of theories say that he didn't comply with Order 66, with him being an ARC trooper and all that. But again their just theories.

I don't think he was an arc trooper actually...

CT-7567 was a veteran clone trooper captain who led the Grand Army of the Republic's acclaimed 501st Legion during the Clone Wars. Bred and trained on Kamino, 7567 entered into Republic service at the Battle of Geonosis in 22 BBY. He gained respect as an honorable commander from Jedi officers and clone troopers alike, becoming known as one of the best and toughest clone troopers in the Grand Army. 7567 was even selected for special command training under Advanced Recon Commando Alpha-17, following which he took the nickname "Rex.

basically think of it like this, you're getting trained by a seal team six member while you're a US army ranger, but that doesn't make you a member of seal team six.

The reason I think he was an ARC trooper was because he had the authority to promote other clones to the position of ARC trooper such as a Fives and Echo. And even after that they continued to serve under him throughout the series.

also when you look at the arc trooper article, they never mention rex being an arc trooper.
User avatar #123 - themarineelite (05/04/2014) [-]
They never mention him not being one either. HE could be an ARC commander since he is the Commanding officer of the 501st at the time, which according to the wiki state that instead of being Alpha class Troopers, The ARC commanders were regular clones who underwent ARC training by Alpha-17. The one thing that undermines this theory is that he is wearing a Blue Shoulder plate which is the rank of a Lieutenant, but the Unit colors of the 501st is Blue so I don't know what to think about that.

yeah, the people on the wiki basically had the same discussion here starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:KB_Archive/Captain_Rex:ARC%3F_or_just_a_Captain%3F

Basically it came down to "Until a source calls him an ARC, we don't call him as such -- period, nuff said, case closed. This is how Wookieepedia has always done it and will continue to do it --"
User avatar #121 - huntergriff (05/04/2014) [-]
i'm honestly surprised he wasn't, but...then again, they wanted to make alpha 17 from the republic comic, but they changed it to rex due to the alliteration from ahsoka, anakin, artoo, and the 4th would have been alpha. I guess the only reason he looks like an arc trooper is due to him originally being alpha-17.

Cody had the same training, as did bacara, neyo, and gree...Not one of those clones are arc troopers.
