Speeder and chill.
Spoiler Thoughts:
  • Flashpoint flashpoint flashpoint.
  • I’m going to say that a lot of Shadow of Revan I’m just going to mentally disregard because in my head, Revan’s a girl and she eventually makes her way back to Carth and lives happily ever after, AS GOD INTENDED.
  • It’s interesting that from the Class Storyline onward, it’s all everyone fighting against some totally different enemy, to justify having the same story for Republics and Imperials.
  • Man, good thing this guy said he was Revan, or I wouldn’t have known.
  • So the guy under the mask isn’t actually Revan, but an admirer?
  • Kylo Revan?
  • Wow, I have no idea what they’re talking about, with these coalition missions.
  • You’d think saving everyone on Yavin would be enough incentive to band together.
  • Oh, it’s the daily missions.
  • Ok, off to see the wizard.
  • Well, since I only saw this guy once, and he was a ghost, I’m not sure…But it looks like the same dude.
  • I have no clue what’s going on in this boss fight.
  • It’s going on as normal, and then he just seems to get invulnerable for a bit?  And then stops?
  • Then it says we lose Satele Shan and battle clarity, but I’m not even sure what that implies.
  • Oh, ok, we won.
  • Oh, but we also lost?
  • Well good going, Revan.
  • I like how everyone else goes back to base magically, but leaves us standing out there in the rain.
  • I feel a little bad on cheating on Iresso with Shan, but Felix really isn’t the most compelling character.
  • Love when Satele Shan talks.  “You’re not fooling anyone, Commander Shepard!”
  • Well another successful mission over, with the galaxy in way worse shape than when we started.
  • Interlude
  • Oh wait, here’s when I did “Crystal Ball.”
  • I would like a “go back to the ship” button. That would come in pretty handy.
  • Off to Ilum. Where the crystals come from.
  • Again with the strip mining ripping the planet apart. I’m beginning to get a message.
  • Lord Loyat’s a girl?
  • Well that was a lot of dying. Where did all those guys come from?
  • Ok, you have to kill off everyone else first, or they all suddenly get the urge to wipe the floor with you.
  • I was apparently supposed to do this one earlier, because all the loot is too primitive.
  • Darth Malgus, you toad.
  • I hate these flashpoint missions.
  • The Voss are pretty suck, for a race.
  • Darth Serevin has some pretty impressive killing power.
  • Talsa-Ko is not good at picking a winner.
  • I’m sparing you, Talsa-Ko, but if you turn out like Harley Quinn, I’m going to be peeved.
  • Ugh. Right back into another flashpoint.
  • Cole doesn’t sound like he’s expecting to see us again.
  • Holy Moly, I think this Prototype took us down with one shot.
  • HK-47!  Nooo!
  • Malgus actually wasn’t as bad as some of the bosses along the way.
  • Cole’s story is a little more exciting.
  • I like the jaunty music that plays when all your dialogue options are humorous.
  • Ilum is free again. Of course, we probably exploded like 2/3rds of it, but oh well.
  • Spark of Hope
  • Sargent Trila seems a little down.
  • Hachi Matchi, the Corrupted Bothrian fight was the most frustrating thing ever.
  • I was too high level for it to kill me, but I hadn’t figured out which was the interrupt skill so I couldn’t kill it.
  • That was right up there with the Arishok for causing hypertension.
  • These terraforming devices respawn so quickly, you can pretty much keep destroying the same two over and over.
  • That next boss beast looked like a pushover next to the Bothrian.
  • So these Dread guys are kinda kooky.
  • They might not be that stable.
  • I love missions where you can climb behind stuff, blow it up, and re-stealth with no one the wiser.
  • So apparently, the last mission in this is an “ops” one, where you can’t enter the area without like eight people.
  • That would have been nice to know in the first place.
  • Operation Barricade
  • I’m glad we went to the trouble of curing these things so we could kill them directly afterward.
