Hello everyone, it’s Laevatein, and I’m back from the dead! Or for a more mundane answer, I’m back from my hiatus. Anyway, it’s Christmas Eve, and Santa is probably still going over his list to see who’s naughty and who’s nice (he’s gotta check it twice, after all). You know the drill though, whoever’s nice gets good gifts, and whoever’s naughty gets coal (or Windows phones or whatever people consider lousy nowadays (I’m joking about the Windows phones part)). Now, as a guy who writes about games, I think talking about how morality works in games is a pretty fitting choice for a post on Christmas Eve. I mean, how much more meta can you get than Santa?
Perhaps the only upside to extended periods of time disconnected from my constant stream of information is the joy of getting it all at once in bulk as soon as the periods of time end. Yes, it was not long after I opened up my laptop in a designated safe area after almost two days with no electricity thanks to the delightful harbinger of badly timed disasters, Madame Sandy, that I found the internet abuzz with news about what I had previously considered an impossible notion. There will be a new Star Wars. Yes, Disney has grown a few feet at the waistline thanks to this new deal, and this is a rather important fact when examining and predicting the future of a new set of SW films. But the cause, in this case, is outshone by the effect. There will be a new Star Wars. Hot damn.
