| Movie/TV Board|| What caused the rebellion in Star Wars? - Bmath on 6/18/14 at 9:25 am|
The original trilogy really focuses on the rebellion trying to take down the empire, but they never really come out and say why.
Sure, they used the Death Star to blow up Alderan, but they did this to send a message to the rebels. Why was there a rebellion in the first place?
In the prequels ...

| Gaming Board|| Could Nintendo merge the Wii U and 3DS? - Bmath on 6/3/14 at 2:45 pm|
Would it be possible for Nintendo to merge the two systems? Instead of using the game pad, just have a 3DS or similar as a controller. Games (or at least portions) could be continued on the 3DS when traveling or to not tie up the TV.
To some degree they have already done this with the game pad,...

Just received an unexpected job offer that would put me on track to return to Baton Rouge in August.

[i]Note* This thread is obviously not geared for the superior master race.[/i]
With much anticipated games such as GTA V coming out a few months before next gen consoles will you buy the game or wait for the new system? This is of course assuming the game is also rereleased on the new consoles.
