Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Reveal Trailer – E3 2017: Bethesda Conference

I have fallen off keeping up with all the new video games coming out. I use to regularly watch E3 every year.  So it is nice to see a game that gets me excited to sit down and play again.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus sure does look like it will be the game for me. Bethseda rolled out the trailer at this years E3 and WOW. I have been a fan of the Wolfenstein games for years. I purchase Wolfenstien: The New Order well to be frank because it was cheap. Dam what a great game. Now from this excellent trailer combining live action and action from the game dam this looks fun.

B.J. Blazkowicz is still alive and with new friends, toys and new abilities.  Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus takes place in 1961. Players will journey from Roswell, New Mexico to gator-filled New Orleans to post-nuclear New York.

“Equip an arsenal of badass guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers, cyborgs, and über soldiers in this definitive first-person shooter,” Bethesda said in an official announcement.

Movie Monday – Star Wars: The Old Republic -Knights of the Eternal Throne “Betrayer” Trailer

So the other day I was just looking around the internet and I came across this trailer. I was not sure what it was at first. Yeah I had a inkling that it maybe a Star Wars short film.  But is was not until I was half way through the trailer that I came to realize that is was a Star Wars trailer.

I was not sure for what though. The CGI was fantastic and I found myself caught up in the story and the action. At the end it was a trailer for the new expansion for The Star Wars – The Old Republic. It was so beautiful and well done that at the end I wanted more.  I was not the only one.  A new petition at Change.org was started by a group of Star Wars fans are asking why not.  The fans are asking Disney and Lucasfilm to turn Star Wars: The Old Republic into a TV series on Netflix

Here’s what the petition is asking:

It’s no surprise to anyone that the Star Wars franchise has experienced a massive resurgence lately, with The Force Awakens released last year and this year with the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, it’s about time that the stories from over 3,000 years before the Battle of Yavin be told to both new and old fans of the franchise.

The Knights of the Republic series of games as well as the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic serve as the main vehicles to tell stories of characters such as Darth Revan, Darth Malak, Bastila Shan, Darth Traya, Meetra Surik, Darth Malgus, Satele Shan, and the list goes on. The popularity of this era in Star Wars history is felt throughout the fanbase, and I feel it would do a massive disservice to us if these stories weren’t told.

 Why Netflix was chosen was because of the wealth of great content they have produced over the years, such as Narcos, House of Cards, and especially everything that Marvel has done and is still currently working on. Not only that, but Netflix can serve as a platform to tell these stories as they were meant to be portrayed: dark, foreboding, and a touch on the mature side. This can also give us fans our healthy dose of Star Wars while we’re waiting on the new movies or the new season of Star Wars Rebels.

The Old Republic era is a pivotal point in the Star Wars timeline because that’s where everything changed, from the Jedi Civil War and the fall of Revan, the First Jedi Purge, and an omnipresent darkness that not only watched the chaos from afar but also kick-started the downfall. Our fanbase would love to see this on Netflix, and I feel that you would enjoy creating and adapting these stories as much as we would enjoy watching them.

So I don’t know about you but I am down for this.
