Resistance Hero Scott Saw Episode IX Footage and Lived to Tweet About It! – The Blockade Runner Podcast #93

BR 93 Cover

Our recording session this week went too long again, so we’re splitting it up into two episodes, the first of which features our discussion of the Episode IX footage shown at the Disney shareholder’s meeting earlier this week. Shout out to newly minted RESISTANCE HERO @Ladewig for his tweets that made the pain of having to wait until Celebration Chicago to see any footage sting just a little bit less. We wrap this first episode with Ryan’s endorsement of Queen’s Shadow

Tune in later this week for our discussion of the most recent episodes of Resistance and don’t forget that the audio podcast features chapter markers if you want to skip to a specific section. As always, we welcome feedback at blockaderunnerpodcast@gmail.com or on Twitter at @blockaderun.

EA’s Exclusive Star Wars Deal: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly- The Blockade Runner Podcast #87

BR 87 Cover

We start this week’s show off with some chat about recent tweets signaling an end to Episode IX’s filming, a discussion of the just-announced Galaxy’s Edge books coming later this year, and a voicemail from The Rural Farmboy (@aRuralFarmboy). The rest of the show is devoted to an in-depth look at Electronic Arts’s exclusive deal for publishing Star Wars games. We run through the history of EA’s Star Wars releases (and cancellations) and lament the unreleased games and missed opportunities (seriously, no Nintendo Switch games?) that are part of the EA-era.
