I know it was rough earlier this week when we sat through a 15 minute expositional dialog, but we’re finally past that stuff and back into the space-fights and lightsaber battles.
Ha ha. I tricked you. It’s actually just more talking. You’re far too trusting.
In this episode I unfairly picked on the Extended Universe novels. This was based entirely on the things people have told be about them. (I think? Maybe I’ve read some? Back in the 90’s I read a bunch of Trek novels and I might have thrown some Star Wars in there. In any case, if I did read some, I don’t remember the details.)
Anyway. So now I’m curious: What’s good? I don’t mean “which books?” I mean: What new ideas did the books introduce that made for good stories and fit within the pre-existing framework? (EDIT: Any media or time period is good. I’m just curious what EU ideas have resonated with people.)

Lost Laughs in Leisure Suit Larry

A stream-of-gameplay review of Dead Island. This game is a cavalcade of bugs and bad design choices.
