New Stuff About Star Wars: The Old Republic!!!

I've done some research and I have found more stuff about Star Wars: The Old Republic!

First, there's two new Flashpoints (both feature a decease that causes people to mutate into living nightmares just begging to kill everybody): Kaon Under Siege, where the Planet Kaon has been infected with Rakghoul Plague which do what I stated above in the parentheses. Anyway, your job is to round as many survivors as possible without getting either eaten by the Rakghouls or die of the rapidly spreading decease. After rounding up some lucky survivors, then comes the second Flashpoint. In this Flashpoint (called The Lost Island), you (and some other players) target the scientist responsible for the Rakghoul Outbreak. You must fight your way through the aforementioned scientist's lair and then fight the twisted Dr. Lorrick. And here's why both sides target him. The Galactic Republic want the virus destroyed for good. And the Sith Empire......well, let's do the math. Empire + Rakghoul Plague = super awesome ultra powerful weapon!

And you can hitch a ride on Taxis. As far as I know (and I know a great deal of Star Wars), Taxis are found in cities. But what do you do if you are outside the city? I got one word that any speed lover would like: SPEEDERS!!!! I have seen three versions. The BARC Speeder, A Speeder that looks a bit like a hover scooter and (the newest model) the Turcob Alliance Speeder, which looks like Anakin's Pod Racer made into a fast moving hover-chair.

Also, There's a new Companion. He is the deadliest machine in the galaxy. He is the ultimate droid. He is called HK-51, the name of an assassination droid unit! As expected from a assassination droid, he is cold, calculating, and is dangerous with any weapon you give him! But he works best with a sniper rifle. I should tell his origins. A whole ship-full of assassination droid units was discovered by some Republic scouts. One of these guys was HK-51. Oh, and the ship the droids were found in, it's wrecked and is still stranded on the freezing planet of Belsavis. If you want this guy to be your partner, go to this planet (when he becomes available) and reactivate him. There's a small chance that you need Legacy Points to do this however.

And the last bit of details is finally here. Special abilities! Let's start with the Bounty Hunter. The Bounty Hunter is a "hunter, seeker, killer for hire". Because of this description, a Bounty Hunter must have the deadliest weapons ever. Becoming a Bounty Hunter is just plain awesome. Some toys you get while playing as a Bounty Hunter include (but not limited to): Flamethrowers, missile launchers, a dozen different weapons that are mounted on the Bounty Hunter's wrists, jet packs, devices that paralyze whatever they hit, customly designed handheld laser pistols.................the list goes on and on. But I'm not going to tell everything a Bounty Hunter has because we would be here forever. But a Bounty Hunter doesn't really need to rely on the aforementioned tech. I've seen a Bounty Hunter kill a Rancor with only one punch (in the Rancor's face, by the way). AND kill a battle droid with an uppercut (the blow sent the droid flying). AND kill a Republic Trooper with a right hook (he used his jet pack to quickly get himself close enough to kill the Trooper). Now Let's talk about the Trooper. A Trooper is tough (hence the armor they wear). Troopers, like Bounty Hunters, have a lot of weapons. However, most of their weapons are an upgrade for their blaster rifle (excluding Commandos, who actually gain a new gun all together. A rapid fire laser cannon to be exact.). But just because Troopers almost completely rely on a long rang weapon does NOT mean they are defenseless at close range. In fact I've seen a Trooper kill (or, in fact, he only knocked the Imperial out) a Imperial Trooper by SLAMMING the rear end of his blaster rifle. Oh, Troopers are also skilled in using Chryo-gernades (Chryo-gernades are bombs that, when they explode, release a cloud of Carbonite, thus turning everybody in range into a statue). And now it's the Jedi's turn. Jedi Knights are skilled fighters (some of them even use TWO lightsabers at the same time.). Jedi Consulars are wise peace keepers (don't underestimate them because they are ultra powerful. So powerful they can use the Force to create earthquakes! AND they can revive fallen allies!). Knights also have an awesome lightsaber combo. First they turn their back to their foe. Next, as soon as the enemy is behind the Jedi, he/she stabs his/her lightsaber into the enemy's chest (you can see the blade puncturing out of the victim's back). The stab will stun/weaken the foe, but not kill them. And finally the Jedi turns back around to the point that he/she is facing the enemy and will kill them with a slash from the lightsaber. Next up are the Imperial Agents. These guys are stealthy, expert marksmen and have the longest attack range in the game. Agents can call in an air strike, deliver a lethal head shot, and, when there's no place to take cover and return fire from, even bring their portable cover to return fire without risk of getting hit. And Last but not Least are the Sith. Sith Warriors are ruthless super-soldiers, can use the Force to squeeze the life out of their foes, and some can use two lightsabers at a time. Sith Inquisitors are capable of using dozens of Force Lightning moves. Some examples are: Number One: Classic Force Lightning, nothing special. Just the same old Force Lightning, where you shoot a single stream of lightning from your hand. Number Two: Charged Lightning. Charged Lightning is twice as long as the first Force Lightning, and instead of shooting lightning out of ONE hand, you shoot lightning out of BOTH hands! Number Three: Force Storm. Force Storm is where you make lightning rain on every enemy in range (the range is basically every body close to you or the whole screen.). And my favorite combination; Numbers Four and Five: Lightning Charge and Discharge. Lightning covers your lightsaber when you use Lightning Charge, thus amplifying the attack power of you lightsaber attacks. When you use Discharge, the lightning that is used in Lightning Charge will be dished out in a wave of electricity, thus electrocuting whatever it hits.

Danny Phantom!!!

You read the blog posts about Mario, Sonic, Spyro, Rayman (and so on), right? Well let me tell you about one of my newer favorite series. Danny Phantom!!!

I really don't think I need to tell you everything about the show. I'll have the theme song do that for me!!! Anyway, here's the lyrics (and of course, a link to the video).


(he's a phantom)

(Danny Phantom, phantom, phantom)

Yo, Danny Fenton was just fourteen                                                        
when his parents built a very strange machine
designed to view a world unseen (he gonna catch em all cuz he's Danny Phantom)

When the portal didn't work his folks just quit
then Danny took a look inside of it
there was a great big flash and thing just changed
his molecules got all rearranged!

(Phantom, phantom, phantom)

When Danny first woke up
he realized
he had snow white hair and glowing green eyes
he could walk through wall, disappear and and fly
he's much more you need than the other guy!

it's then he knew what he had to do
he had to stop all the ghosts that were coming through
he's here to fight for me and you!

He's gonna catch em all cuz he's Danny Phantom
Gonna catch em all cuz he's Danny Phantom
Gonna catch em all cuz he's Danny Phantom!

I think you get the picture from this, hmm? Anyway, Danny Phantom (obviously) has ghost powers.

Because there's a lot of info about Danny Phantom, I highly recommend that you got the Danny Phantom wiki.

Kirby is, as you know, a pink little dude from Planet Popstar (Mainly Dream Land) who has the power to copy to powers of anyone he eats. Well there are also Essences. Essences, when touched by Kirby, automatically give the powers of enemies, like breathing fire or flying, without Kirby having to eat something to get the powers!

 Kirby riding a very small
Warp Star.

Kirby also is great at another thing: Racing! in Kirby Air Ride, he is one of three racers to choose to play as. In the same game, there are differently colored versions of Kirby (Most of which must be unlocked) that fill in the rest of the spots for a race. In Air Ride, there are  two types of rides: Air Ride Machines and Wheelie Bikes. King Dedede always rides a Wheelie Bike that has a rhino-like horn on the "head". There are also Legendary Machines, Air Ride Machines that pack a whole lot of awesome! The Hydra (Legendary Machine number one) is a powerhouse that can rip apart someone's vehicle by just driving over it. The Dragoon (Legendary Machine number two) is fast, but not as fast as the Hydra (which is the fastest vehicle in the game, by the way). The Dragoon can't outrun the Hydra, but it can OUTFLY it!!! That's Right!!! the Dragoon may not stand much of a chance on the track, but in the air it's flight makes it almost impossible to beat it! It's got the BEST flight capabilities in the whole game!!!

Kirby also has a mode of transportation. The Warp Star (also a vehicle in Air Ride). The Warp looks like planet Popstar (in some ways). As it is a transport object used to get place to place, it is extremely fast. As seen in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, it can fit about four people (Kirby, King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee, and Meta Knight).
