Don't worry. None of this blood is mine.

Girls + Star Wars = Murderers

Excuse the pointless update, but I was just going through my Old Republic screenshots folder. For some reason, Katie and Emma are completely missing the good-time wholesome ‘family movie’ aspect of the whole deal. In practically every image I have of them both, they’re negotiating as pictured below. I think in the last one Katie’s even going to execute that motherfucker.

Katie’s Smuggler, no doubt pictured robbing some kind of charity that gives money to space orphans.

"Do what she says, or I'll shoot your fucking ear off."

Emma’s Trooper, perhaps taking a moment to shoot some unarmed prisoners in the back.

He's not going home to his kids.

And this guy’s clearly never going to see his wife and kids again.

  1. I have play this game in free, every time ago, and I have a Jedi, is the normal but I like the Jedi´s. In the previously Star Wars Online game, Galaxies, in this I have a smuggler.
    In Old republic I have two characters, a Jedi man an a Jedi woman. And I admit that i prefer play with the woman character than the man. In the previously games of the Old Republic saga, Knights of the Old Republic, my character are all womens. But I play this games with mans too.

  2. Join the dark side ADB. Your wife already has from the look of it. You can even pick your own Darth name. 😀

  3. I played a Sith Agent back when the game launched. There was just something that appealed to me about the poison-the-drinking-water type of evil. The best part was that I kept getting told I was doing a great job for all the people I murdered while infiltrating various parts of the galaxy. Playing a foil to me was my light aligned Sith Warrior friend. Nicest Sith ever.

  4. I really need to go back and finish my dark side Sith Inquisitor play through. There’s something really cathartic about their ridiculously over the top casual murder and witty banter combo. (Although I will admit to occasionally wondering if it’s just me that thinks it’s funny…)

  5. You notice Katie’s character is pausing for an extended period of time over the corpse of someone she has just murdered.

    You ask her “What are you doing?”

    She replies, “I’m just drinking his tears. They taste so sweet.”

    That you know she is entertaining your giggling child by bouncing him on her knee as she does this sends a chill down your spine.

    “Look at Mummy kill the people. Look Alexander, look!”

  6. And here I joined the Sith on Free-to-play because they were supposed to be the bad guys.

  7. A D-B, looks like you better do what she says when she says it. Tread lightly dude, tread lightly.

  8. I am a strong proponent of feminism, and living in the Balkans, sometimes it’s in scant supply. It warms my cockles to see that at least in the home-isles, brutality is not the preserve of chauvenists. Thanks Aaron!
