Bit of an overreaction by some to the list of Xbox One games when seventy percent of both lists include the same games. Seriously. It's not like they're polar opposites. Sure, they say it's a testament to how terrible the Xbox is but I would argue it's a testament to the state of the industry nowadays.

Well, considering that this entire trilogy so far has been improvised with no one taking the time prior to production on Episode VII to formulate a cohesive narrative beginning, middle and end points I'd say that "looser" is par for the course.

@Yomigaeru: They already knew about these tweets before even hiring him. He even apologized for them years ago.

@s1taz4a3l: Not really much to say when you were hired by the company, owned up to the tweets beforehand and immediately apologized. Then you started working for this company for years. Creating insane revenue for them and then subsequently fired for the very thing you already apologized for years ago.

This isn't a case of being blindsided by these tweets on Disney's part, it's a case of being afraid of public backlash before it happens because apparently being offended in this day and age gives you real power if you can rally enough people to your cause. Which is why all of this happened.

@DarkReign2022: I use GamePass and love it. I beat Super Lucky's Tale which I enjoyed and while my friends got Sea of Thieves, I was on the fence about it but ended up getting it via GamePass and decided to buy it outright in case my pass ever expired or if I ever found myself in a financial bind that required I cut expenses. There's a nice selection of stuff there and my kids play the little games like Overcooked, The Escapists and other stuff on there and it doesn't come out of my pocket. I'd say my family more than gets 10 bucks a month's worth of excitement out of it.

These are the times of growing pains with the Star Wars franchise. The 30 year gap between VI and VII is currently the series' biggest handicap. They are purposefully severing ties with the original trilogy characters while building up the next generation. This is a bad time to be a Star Wars fan because it's not about the ones who grew up with it, it's building the framework for the next. I personally enjoyed the risks taken with The Last Jedi. While there were some questionable scenes (there's always one or two in each Star Wars film), I liked the story it told and was vindicated in my exhaustive defense of Kylo Ren's character from VII saying he was the most interesting of all the new characters.

Turbulent times are upon the series but ultimately it's going to even out when it sets out on its own path and not hindered by what came before.

@gamingdevil800: Meh. This title already caters to a certain crowd. I'd imagine that a super niche title such as this is going to sell just about the same amount of copies regardless of the time of year.
