    I read a column of how these days no maker gives any scoops to interviewers. They have a list of stuff they can say, and say just that, because if they slip anything more it's everywhere in the Internet soon.

    "Our new game will be on all platforms"
    "Will it have multiplayer?"
    "We can't say that now"

    Three months later:
    "Our new game will have multiplayer"
    "What's in it?"
    "We can't say that now"

    Of all the Star Wars dancing animations people have posted in threads over the past few years, that has to be the creepiest I have ever seen.

    And it would be epic. And folks on the boards would be singing praises to it for years to come.
    Er. They might dance those praises, too.

    Both of you, I mean this in the kindest possible way, when I say I hope you both fall into a sarlacc pit.

    Can you kindly hope for that to happen after Abel's announcement? Or even kindlier, after he publishes whatever he's written? And even more kindliest, before the hammer falls on the current EU so we can live 1000 years in ignorance of what befell our beloved warus and Goodvalors and green rabbits and lying space chickens?

    Backing up for a moment--I have trouble seeing Abel's thing as being related to DH's thing.

    Maybe he has already planned a retcon so clever that not even Disney will be able to undo Abel's pre-emptive retconning of the EU into unrebootable indestructibility.

    (That, or Abel has been sitting on years of TCW retcons that he now is able to finally release. :p)

    Am I the only one hoping that Randy's announcement turns out to be an April Fool's joke that most of the forum-goers will believe because of all the hype he's given it?

    Damn, that would be awesome. I would be like "Well-played, sir," and he would be like "Shut up, TFN jerk."

    Better that we pretend it doesn't exist.

    I just saw this news posted into The EUCantina Literature Forum. So it must be true.

    I'm reminded of when people post links to Onion articles on facebook and fume in outrage, believing the stories to be true.

    Excuse me, Lugija and GrandAdmiralJello!! I was the one who posted that on the EUC forum under my SN on there, and both of you are grossly making a mountain out of a molehill.

    Lugija, clearly you did not read my entire post on EUC. I said to take it with a grain of salt. I never, never, said it was true, only that it could be. You should have done what I did, check TF.N's news page instead of blindly believing it was true because I said so. If you want to point fingers after this, point them at Barriss Coffee. His/Her post on the previous page of this same thread was the reason why I posted on EUC. And lest you think I blindly fell for it, GrandAdmiralJello, note that I said I checked TF.N's news page. Your laughing icon was in very poor taste IMO.

    Lugija, it is false. End of discussion.

    Yes I read it, and I did not mean any offence or imply that you had fallen for it. I simply thought it amusing that it had been posted on another forum. Many of us who post here regularly saw that it was false immediately (mainly because it was written by Barriss_Coffee in humorous style and there was no link).

    I have once fallen into what someone says in the Internet without a source: http://boards.theforce.net/threads/...y-joe-schreiber.50008257/page-5#post-50325872

    Let's settle down a bit, friend. As you said -- let's not make mountains out of molehills. In these times of uncertainty for the EU, I'm sure many of us have become more credulous for that very reason. No reason we have to take ourselves so seriously though.

    You read a satiric post and didn't get it at first. It happens to all of us sometimes. No need to make it bigger than it is.

    I no longer know if any of this conversation is meant to be taken seriously or not so I shall just remain quiet and say nothing. :p

    You can always count on the principle that I am never to be taken seriously.*

    They were killed by Jax Pavan.


    No, I'm not telling you which one.
