Cool Stuff Sunday: "Star Wars and Some Other Junk I Guess"

Oh hey. It's the first Sunday of 2016, and I reckon I've got some cool stuff to shove in your gawping faces, you wonderful readers. (All seven [7] of you)! I'm trying to finally get my writing back on a schedule, so hopefully more work will be up here soon. Of course, I still reserve the right to post stuff as I feel fit, because we don't need no steenkin' schedules. Let's begin, shall we?

Fallout 4 tries very hard to railroad you into killing people, to the point that it pretty much breaks the game if you attempt a no-kill approach. Well, this guy beat the main quest without personally killing anyone. Pretty impressive, all things considered. 

Pokemon Go is looking to be pretty freaking awesome. Here's hoping!

Military commanders in WWI tried pretty hard to prevent a second Christmas Truce. New evidence suggests they failed. Good. War is hell, no need to strip every last vestige of humanity out of it. 

There's a new Berserk anime planned for this year. YESSSSSSSSS. Hopefully it's Golden Arc quality. 

Wondering how Boba Fett escaped the Sarlacc? Here's an interesting interpretation, in Lego. 

Apparently professional lightsaber designers are a thing now. A pretty good sign that geeks now rule the earth, or at the very least have too much money. 

In case you missed it, Steam had some serious security issues over Christmas. Sometimes I worry about Gaben's empire... 

The India-Pakistan border closing ceremony is impressive and utterly ridiculous

An interesting theory about Han Solo as an RPG character, or, failing forward. 

You know TR-8R? The "Traitor!" stormtrooper from The Force Awakens? He has a canon backstory. Ah, fandom. 

A really interesting piece about Irish hunger strikers

Soon, a Japanese-styled set of Star Wars figures will be appearing. Hmmmmmmm... Hmmm...
