Lest we forget the absolutely amazing team of directors over the series. I'm so glad they hired people invested (some full blown star wars nerds) in the universe.
@FullMetalAlcoholist, Agreed, they took the episode last week from a 17 year old game. That's next level nerding.
@DamienD, wotwotwot, please explain further my liege.
@twopotatoes, the Krayt Dragon and the mission to kill it is from KOTOR. They even referenced the pearl which was the quest item you needed to collect.
@DamienD, you know i kept wondering what the Tusken was so happy to pull out, I was expecting another reference in a follow up episode. Which console was it played on?
@DamienD, only if you want to give it to the Tuskens. I keep it for my saber ;) I love KotOR, and still play it
@twopotatoes, easiest to play on pc now. Just go to gog.com.
@Naberrie, how is it used for your saber? Is a Kyber crystal inside the pearl or does it have something to do with the diatium power cell? Possibly just the housing of the saber itself?
@twopotatoes, in KOTOR a saber has 3 components that affect stats. (Lens, Crystal, Power Cell) The pearl can be used as a crystal and actually has some of the best stats.
@DamienD, ahhh makes me think of Star Wars galaxies. Good times
@theduuuude, Galaxies has a fan server going. Games from the 90's and early 00's will always be the best. They had the graphics to entertain and the stories to immerse.
@FullMetalAlcoholist, Plus all the awesome cameos
@twopotatoes, great question! In KotOR 1, a saber can have 3 crystals: 1 for the color, and 2 to focus and modify the blade. The Krayt Dragon Pearl falls into the latter category, enhancing the saber. Specifically, the Pearl gives +3 attack and +2 energy damage
@twopotatoes, personally, I’ve played it on XBOX, PC, and Mac (it’s on steam). It’s also available on the iPhone, but I haven’t tried that

I hate gay people
@mypenisissmallbut, I don't.
@reaIDonaIdTrump, oh damn i dont really I just wanted to see someone reply with my new username
@mypenisissmallbut, ah, ok understandable, you wanted your username followed by 'i like gay people!'
(Apparently) unpopular opinion: I thought episode 1 of season 2 sucked so badly I couldn’t even finish it.
I’m hoping episode 2 is better. The Krayt ‘dragon’ was just really stupidly written and directed.
Ripping off KotOR, honestly what were they thinking?
@I Are Lebo, I thought it was nice of them to give a nod to my favorite SW game. It made a lot of us in the KotOR community really happy
@Naberrie, I would’ve been happier if their portrayal of the Krayt dragon was better than ‘giant cgi head that comes randomly out of the ground’. They turned a dragon into a friggin’ Zelda mini boss.
Also, did you notice that the only casualties of that fight were all Tuscan Raiders? Not one human bought it that whole battle.
@I Are Lebo, I agree, the Krayt dragon being just a head wasn’t as cool as showing its full body. It reminded me a lot of the Sand Burrower from the Jedi Outcast: Jedi Academy game. And no, I didn’t notice that. I wonder why they didn’t kill off any of the townspeople
@Naberrie, because human centric writers? The Sand People got totally fücked over by that whole episode. From individuals dying as bait and it being played off as a joke, to dozens of their members being liquified by acid spray while their allies didn’t give a shït, The Mandalorian did them dirty.
The second episode wasn’t any better, with Mando suddenly being a chatterbox that won’t shut up while babbling to a frog woman who can’t speak common, all the while that little yoda shït keeps eating her eggs that are supposedly her species’ last hope against extinction. I just loved how Mando, the supposed professional, couldn’t even be bothered to secure the eggs against the child. He scolded the thing like a bad dog owner and the show played it off for laughs.
If episode 3 of season 2 is as bad as 1 and 2 have been, I’m giving up on The Mandalorian. They’ve clearly been cheaping out on the writing and directing. I’m super disappointed.
@Cave Dweller, the actor who plays the mandalorian
@downwitsickness, again, who?
The debutante in the metal suit no one should ever see?
@Cave Dweller, yes
