In this episode of the Cheerful Ghost Roundtable we talk about what we are playing, drinking and dive right into talking about Star Wars Episode VII and the recent E.T. dig. What horrible games would you bury 50 feet under the ground to never be played again?

We talk about all of that. So yay for you.

If you want to try Risk of Rain, this bundle might be the ticket:

My only casting concern in SW EP VII is Cari Fisher. She of course has a very important role in the original movies, but The last time we saw her in SW she was super hot rocking a golden bikini. Now she kind of looks and talk like the hunch back of Notre Dame. I'm a terrible person, I know.

It is a shame that we couldn't have seen those original characters (during their prime) continue to develop on the big screen. I'm sure Han and Leia will take on some kind of Owen and Beru role, making blue milk smoothies in the kitchen, reminiscing of times we never got to see.

@jdodson, speaking of Humble Bundle, did you click over to see the actual bundle this month? Image comics! East of West, Lazarus and Saga are all good reasons to pick that up, for anyone interested in having their world rocked.

@Matt_Derkson: Yeah, you are a terrible person so please feel bad. :trollface:

That said, I hear you but it's not a huge thought in my mind. Carrie Fischer looked like Princess Leia and now she likes more like Queen Leia. Which is to say, she is old enough to be someones Grandma and looks the part now. This isn't a slam, grandparents are awesome BUT most of them I never had the hots for so it's strange.

@scrypt: I am happy we are getting this far. I would have wished a 30/40 something Luke doing cool shit and it stinks we won't get it, but I am happy that we can finally point the Star Wars camera at these actors and see something new.

As far as the new bundle, yeah I did see it. I got the ol' Audiobook bundle and it's great but I still haven't listened to any of them. I love the idea of the Comic Book bundle I just think it will turn out similarly to the Audiobook bundle.

"most of them"

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and you can't have 'beholder' without the 'older'. (I have no idea what that means...)

I think that was so deep that none of us will understand it. But I'm going to start quoting that now.

Let the characters act their age! This is like real life, people get older, it happens. I guarantee we'll see Luke doing some cool shite, a la Yoda. He's older, but that just means he knows how to kick ass better than the wet behind the ears Jedis coming up. I for one am looking forward to the new series, especially with the combo of Kasdan/Abrams. And for all you pups, Lucas first envisioned the series as a 9-parter (see OLD interviews), so finally it's coming through.

It always amazes me that people see older=weaker. I'll kick anyone's ass at 45. I fight dirty and smart!
