halo 4 was unbalanced, unfun garbage that removed a lot of the little features that made it feel like halo, but 5 was a lot better in my opinion. Still not as quality as the older stuff, but it's developing in nice directions

I can't stand Rebels in general, honestly. They went so far with the kiddification of it, the coyote had a better chance of grabbing the roadrunner than the Imperials have of ever posing a credible threat. Doesn't feel like a rebellion on the edge of disaster, it feels like the 3 stooges chasing the A-Team.

Demagol :D

but for real, there's not too many that would be positive that I can think of

there's Dha'ward, but other than that you have fun words like late, scorn, stinky... D is apparently not a very friendly letter

Working on resetting life after the military. Got accepted into the UCCS mech engineering program, so I'm happy about that.

Also on Skype as vlet.hansen, which is probably a faster way to reach me

This is why I lost hope for everything months ago.

Ah well, I have my world with my friends where the EU exists, and they can't take that from me.

I think they had the wrong focus.
(lifted off my facebook)
[spoiler]SW7 would have been infinitely better if Kylo, Rey, the Starkiller, and the Luke subplot were all removed.
Make Phasma the main villain, make Finn and Poe the primary focus, and have the movie set regarding the Resistance fighting the insurgent FO and you've got yourself a far better movie.

If you REALLY feel the need to force your lightsabers in the story, make Luke a successful master who has too many political ties with the Republic to overtly support the resistance but sends Rey (his protege and not from an shebs-backwards planet) to the Resistance as aid, and you can still have Kylo as like, a defector or something. [/spoiler]

[spoiler]Might be confusing her with Kylo Ren. I can't think of anyone else. Also, what was that house/clan business? This ain't kandosii at all...[/spoiler]

I liked the bit with the clones, despite the massive breaks from canon that their existence implied. The second episode was particularly fun.

I'll someday get around to adding to it and getting more...

On the plot side of things, without getting too spoilery, it just doesn't feel like SW in any meaningful way to me. Especially with many decisions regarding the primary factions and their respective places in the galaxy.

On the technical and artistic side of things, I feel like Abrams is focused on objectives other than "make a good Star Wars movie" which isn't all that surprising, considering his reputation for odd (to say the least) artistic and plot choices and a fondness for injecting political subjects into his work.

Most notably, injecting political subjects in a way that doesn't work in-universe. The GFFA has plenty of opportunities to explore such things, but he's not approaching it in that way.

And his biggest response to fan fears that he's going to screw everything up has been "look at how I'm using McQuarrie designs and practical effects! I like SW just like you, right?"

In terms of what Star Wars is, what it means to people, practical vs. computer effects and the use of original concept art is a complete sideshow.

Further, I find the majority of the casting decisions to be iffy, at best, and the new characters have nothing that sells me on them for the most part.

The only ones I find even remotely interesting so far are Poe and Phasma, since Poe is the only one who actually looks worth watching, and I'm a sucker for armor.

Gleeson, for example, is intended to be a general, but looks like a skinny teenager who's hiding in his dad's coat that he found. Kylo? His costume design is... minimalist, to say the least, and that picture of him with his mask off was used as a profile picture on a bait account on an emo dating site for humor value. There's a reason for that.

Will he turn out to be an impressing villain? Maybe, but indications from the lines we've heard so far make it feel like we're going to wish we had Lucas-grade, sand-hating, youngling-killing dialogue back.

Really, I could rant on for another hour or so, but I'll just say that nothing I've seen so far has given me any confidence that they know how to handle what they have.

Well, I'd go with Ruusaan. Traditional name, pretty much the same meaning. "Reliable One".
