Re: Order 66

I HATE THE COVER!!!!!! It is totaly out of the spirit R.C. But I LOVE the book. It is so sad at the End.  I literally cried. I can't wait till the 5th book. big_smile

Re: Order 66

I love the cover because it's not like the others. He just looks so badass, and I like the ammo counter. Actually, I think it's a DC-17 with an anti-armor attachment. I just finished the book last weekend because I work almost every night after school, and then I have homework, so I can't even play video games or post here, or anything. It sucks.
In other news, I'm seeing Quantum of Solace tonight! W00t!

Ha.  We wish.  Hopefully they will consider doing something like that.

Re: Order 66

Don't tease me like that. Cruel Cruel Cruel. But Who ever made it certainly did a nice job. Ah, to dream. Republic Commando is one of a handful of games that I've actually beaten. I love it so. (I actually was playing it the other day...)

*dream sequence*
Maybe the cover MM posted was actually leaked by the developers at lucas arts. Like they were all told to start comming up with new game concepts, and of course that means coming up with a way to market the idea to those that control which games get developed and which ones get flushed down the drain. This one they loved and is in the art stage.
*end sequence*

I too got really emotional at the end of Order 66. I don't remember getting that way over a book before, There are critics of KT out there yes, but If she can get me ( me!) emotionally involved with her characters that much, well then she must have something working for her.

Re: Order 66

Yeah, she's great like that. But the cover is fan made--VGBox art is a site that makes box are for games already in existence, and also fake covers, such as this one. Unfortunately.

Re: Order 66

Wow...I cant believe I got my hopes up for such a fake cover...God I wish that was coming out, screw the KOTOR MMORG, I want REPCOM!

Re: Order 66

Oh i knew it was fake. Thats why I said *dream sequence*. Its my dream. Esp. since my love for TFU has died as it is unbeatable for me. (Cant get dumb Star Destroyer down... tried  for 45 min. today)

Re: Order 66

Aside from the events towards the end, I thought it was kinda boring...

***SPOILERS***












Etain's death was so dumb. I wanted to see her die... but to go defending (without a frakking weapon!) some RANDOM clone she doesn't even know was just lame. I thought Etain was smarter than that... I mean, who would really do something so rash mere minutes away from escaping?

I DID want her to die... but I was hoping Niner or someone else would obey Order 66 and kill her on the spot, and Darman would have to choose between his brothers and Etain. THAT would have been epic. Talk about the ultmiate star crossed lovers! I just wish it had been more dramatic. It was so brief and random in my opinion.

It is also disheartening we may never know of Sev's fate... -_-

Indeed. I felt cheated that things went down the way they did because I was hoping for some real questioning to happen around obedience and loyalty. One thing's for sure though; Etain certainly acted loyal until the very end. The poor di'kut didn't have it coming, she ran right into it.

***SPOILERS OFF***

Wasn't it for the Bardan-focalized chapters I'd say this wasn't my favorite book of the series. Triple Zero and True Colors share the top shelf for my personal tastes.

its really good.

Re: Order 66

Yea totally think this is my favorite SW book ( and i ve read a few in my time tongue) I don't react emotionally to a book like i've reacted to this one. And It wasn't just the first time apparently. Hmm... maybe I do have a soul...

Re: Order 66

I really liked this book, and it might be my favorite of the series. I think True Colors was the best though.

And I really hope we find out what happens to Sev in Imperial Commando. Vau said he was going to Kashyyyk to look. Sev had better be alive or I'll be mad.....Delta should have said "screw Yoda's orders" and gone back to look for him.
