Episode 2205: Sword Art: Online

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

The Pre-Asskicking One-Liner is such a cool bit of roleplaying dialogue that it's important to have the right one for the right occasion. We suggest making a list of good ones to use, so that you have a few choices handy at every battle.

Just be sure that after delivering one of these lines you don't get the asskicking handed to yourself!

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Round two. Fight!

It's a shame Rey didn't try pulling Kylo's sword instead, as amusing as it would have been. I get why that would never happen though; the color-coding for who's Team Good-Guy/Bad-Guy would be backwards. This Episode has been stuffed with a ton of new things already, I can't see Disney trying to pull that kind of reverse-think in the first new Star Wars movie for years.

Rey's definitely showing a lot more ability in this movie than Luke did in his first movie. Game-wise, it of course feels completely in character for Pete to have a stronger character to start with than Corey as Luke. I wonder how this all came across to people watching the movie. It seems both like the sort of change people would love, but very easy to mess up in the presentation and push people away instead.
