Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

This is a great game, but it's easy to get lost and have to back track, the lightsabre's are cool collectibles but they don't have any unique skills in them so they're kind of a gimmick.  The unique Star Wars worlds you get to explore like the Wookie home world of Kashyyyk, are beautiful and expansive, and great fun to roam around in.

There's a sequel in the works, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, I just found out about, which should be fun.  Cal Kestis looks like he's getting some upgrades.

I've not played it yet but I feel like Cal Kestis seems less like a Jedi name and more like he wants to take you out sailing one day to tell you about some new coverage options on your life insurance policy.

No argument here, his name and looks are kind of the 'every man'.  When it comes to insurance though, I tend to picture Ned Ryerson.  You may remember Cameron Monaghan as Asher from The Giver or Ian Gallagher on Shameless:  https://next-episode.net/person/cameron-monaghan.

There's rumblings on the interwebs of a live action Disney+ series for him, fingers crossed:

I just meant the name. I'm trying not to hold Gotham against the actor.

I lasted about 5 minutes into the pilot episode of Gotham before shutting it off, so, no idea he was in it; terrible show.  As for Cal Kestis, all I'm saying is that he has mass appeal, like a regular average kid who becomes a hero, I like him.  The game does a great job of bringing you into his world very quickly. 

The work spent on designing the levels of Jedi Fallen Order is extraordinary, and a big selling point of the game, although the gameplay is repetitive.  There were 2 specific areas I had to look up online, and sometimes to finish my 99% completion of a world it involved a lot of back track and was often more time than it was worth, as the world's are just so expansive.
