It’s Okay To Get Pumped About Star Wars Again

While I was watching this trailer, I started to cry for two reasons.

1) Because I wanted to make-believe that I was watching a feature length Star Wars film written and developed by Bioware, and

2) I realized how much pain my wallet was going to be in when this damn game comes out.

I WANT TO BE A LASER BEAM COWBOY SO BAD PEW PEW PEW THANK YOU KINDLY

In all seriousness, though, I care more about the characters in this trailer than I do about the cast of whiny, emotionally stunted idiots that populated the Star Wars prequels. Bioware had six minutes, Lucas had 418. Yeah, I looked that shit up. Those were some LONG-ASS FILMS, and yet some Canuckian game developer managed to make him look like a complete fool in less than one-sixtieth of the running time. I hope that right now, somewhere deep in the bowels of his Scrooge McDuck money vault, he is feeling the indelible pang of shame.
