Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Agents of Chaos I: Hero’s Trial

Continuing with my string of Star Wars novel reviews, here we go with Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Agents of Chaos I: Hero’s Trial (This Time It’s Personal: Part Two: The Re-Jedining: Redux: The Vong Strike Back: Three — seriously, how many subtitles is too many?)

Star Wars: Scoundrels

Having read Winner Lose All by Timothy Zahn, I felt like I was in great shape going into Scoundrels. Sure, the only similarities are four characters and a single reference to the heist in the short story (which Zahn or the publisher tactlessly refer to on a separate page after the very end of the book — way to go, guys), but the tone of the short story is a great primer.

Star Wars: Winner Lose All–A Lando Calrissian Tale

Released in early December in preparation for Zahn’s upcoming novel Scoundrels (released today — my copy is in the mail), Winner Lose All — A Lando Calrissian Tale is an e-book novella featuring Lando in a high-stakes sabacc game. The game — with a ten-million credit buy-in — features a rare and valuable piece of art. A small statuette, designed by a mysterious artist, which is completely identical to its twins (of which only seven exist in the galaxy). But an attempted break-in reveals that nothing is as it seems.

Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Dark Tide II: Ruin

It’s been awhile since a Star Wars book review. Truth be told, I’ve read several more and am still many reviews overdue. Star Wars is back on the brain, it seems, so I figure I’d continue my journey through the New Jedi Order series with a review of Dark Tide II: Ruin, which obviously continues from Dark Tide I: Onslaught. It is worth noting that the Star Wars EU has far too many subtitles.

Uncharted: Fight for Fortune

Uncharted: Fight for Fortune, the latest Uncharted-related offering from SCE Bend Studios (the folks behind the excellent Uncharted: Golden Abyss) is a card-based strategy game dropped near the start of the month. It contains elements from all the Uncharted games, and from the Eye of Indra-video thing, and for an Uncharted fan (ie, anyone who owns a Playstation 3 or Vita), and at a mere $5, well, it’s probably worth the risk.

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

While Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale hasn’t gotten a ton of play from The Daily Pletteau, I couldn’t resist picking it up the other day for the PS3 (and a free version for the Vita, of course.)

LittleBigPlanet’s Sackboy launches… cake at Toro Inoue.
