Could Jedi: Fallen Order be the new Dark Forces?

 

Join me as I discuss the newly announced game Jedi: Fallen Order and how I think we could be getting a game similar to my favourite Star Wars games – the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight series

What’s Canon: Star Wars Uprising

Join me as I take a look at the Species, Planets and Stormtrooper variants that have been added to Canon (from new and Legends material) in the mobile game Star Wars: Uprising

I forgot to mention the Legends version of the Purge Trooper – thankfully Star Wars Explained already covered it in a video, which I’ve linked to below

Symbols (3)

This will probably be the last one of these posts as they do more to expose my ignorance than share any knowledge.

Anyway, these symbols were made by Clay Cazmarec in the Animus chamber – some are just coded messages but others are historic symbols and I thought I’d find what I can and post about it.

The Eye of Providence

The eye within a pyramid has long been a symbol of God’s all-seeing eye on the world. It is famous for its appearance on US currency and the conspiracy theories claiming it represents Masonic control of the government.

The symbol likely represents Abstergo’s goal to control the world through the Abstergo-Eye satellites.

Pentagram

Though the symbol has it’s origins in Greek and Roman mythology in modern culture it is linked with evil and satanism.

The symbol like represents Abstergo’s evil intentions

Nazca Lines

The Nazca lines are an astonishing feat of ancient design. Depicting animals, these massive designs are only visible from the air – a view their creators would have never had.

The symbols likely point to the location of a Piece of Eden in Peru, where the lines are located.

Omega

Omega is the last letter in the Greek alphabet and is significant because of Christ’s statement “I am the Alpha and Omega”

The symbol is likely a reference to Abstergo’s attempts to attain godlike power

Eye of Horus

Also known as the wedjat, the Eye is a symbol of good fortune and prosperity in Egyptian culture

It’s likely the symbol is a reference to Eye-Abstergo

The following two are mathematical symbols I won’t even pretend to have knowledge of. You are welcome to Google them in your own time

Blogga’s Achievements: The Didact Hates Puppies!!!

Hi guys, watch my latest video discussing some achievements I got while playing Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Specifically I unlocked Pest ControlJust a Taste, and Curious.

 

If you want to get the Curious achievement I’ve linked a guide I found helpful in finding the terminal

 

Also if you’re interested I’ve linked the terminal video and the Halo 4 Legendary ending video below.

 

Star Wars News: Delayed Reactions

Hi guys, sorry for the prolonged leave of absence – I’ve been trying something new. Here’s my first post done as a YouTube video, covering the Star Wars News that’s come out lately in usual delayed fashion!!

 

 

Also, here’s the Battlefront II Story trailer

 

And, as if you needed it, The Last Jedi trailer

 

Lastly for more information on Tag and Bink – here’s a video from Star Wars Explained which does them more justice than I ever could

Symbols (2)

Accover

Continuing this series I’ll look at the symbols of the various orders acive in the Crusades, you know, the symbols on flags you spent hours running around collecting…oh, no,  just me then?

Knights Teutonic

Insignia Germany Order Teutonic.svg

Like most of the Knights of the Crusdades the Teutonic Order adopted the Cross as their symbol, mounting a black cross on a white backdrop. The Knights were identifiable by a simple black cross marked on their white robes.

Knights Hospitalier

Probably one of the coolest symbols for me as I went to Malta, where the order had it’s base of operations for centuries and the symbol was very prevalent across the islands. Even though Malta played no part in the game it’s cool to have a real connection to that story through it’s history. Even cooler was visiting Monterrigioni and Tiber Island in Italy!!

Jerusalem Cross

The Kingdom of Jerusalem was an attempt during the crusades to create a permanent state in and around Jerusalem for pilgrims to the holy city. The state lasted nearly two centuries but ultimately failed.

King Richard

One of the most iconic English symbols are the three lions of Richard the Lionheart, still seen today on the England football strip among other places.

Saracens

Flag of Turkey.svg

Yes, this is the flag of Turkey, but it’s the closest representation of the in-game flag I could find. The crescent and star are depicted in medieval images and texts as being the banner of some Saracen factions during the crusades and has been in use in various forms since the 2nd century.

That’s it, my knowledge of the period is cursory at best and I tried to give a basic impression rather than a full history – if there are any glaring errors or omissions leave a comment and I’ll fix ’em

Next time I’ll cover the mysterious symbols on the Abstergo walls

E3 2017: Halo Wars 2

The Flood are back!!

At first I thought this might just be another multiplayer pack but it promises a full campaign as well as multiplayer combat.

We know the story takes place from the perspective of the Banished who you play as, which is a cool twist. My guess is it’s a prequel and some curious Brutes let a flood specimen out of storage which they then have to contain. I don’t want more than that as it would diminish the Chief’s victory in Halo 3.

This is what DLC should be, adding a fun new perspective that’s optional to play – not adding essential content that makes you feel cheated for buying the full game in the first place.

E3 2017: Destiny 2

We got a new trailer giving us the perspective of Ghaul, the sequel game’s villain. Not much else was given away but that’s to be expected given we had the Destiny 2 event not so long ago.

Ghaul’s perspective is interesting, what I find most intriguing is that seems that he knows as much if not more about the Traveller than the Guardians themselves do – I mean he knows enough to drain the Light for himself and take it from the Guardians.

I like his line ‘you are not brave, you have merely forgotten the fear of death’ – I’ve always loved that Destiny have made respawning a real part of the story so Guardians have died and been revived over and over again so yeah I guess they would get overconfident.
