On Station At Celebration: Day 2

April 12, 2019 at 10:20 pm | Posted in Celebration, Conventions, Events, Star Wars | Leave a comment

Day two at Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 was the first day of panels, and it all kicked off with the Episode IX panel. I didn’t win any of the panel lotteries, so I headed straight for the Star Wars Live Stream Stage on the exhibit floor which is way better than last time. It’s bigger, a better layout, and there’s more screens. While you don’t get to be in the room with the celebrities, you still get to experience it with a big group of Star Wars fans and get the live reactions of the crowd. The two biggest crowd reactions from the trailer? Lando and the Emperor’s laugh. Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 2…

Day one at Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 was the easy day. No panels, no stress. It was a day to roam the con floor, explore the convention center, check out all the booths and experience the cool stuff on the Exhibition hall.

It all starts in the outside queue, however. Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 1…

Book Review: ‘Queen’s Shadow’ by E. K. Johnston

If you want to know more about Padme and her handmaidens, Queen’s Shadow is definitely the book you’re looking for. There’s not a lot of action and excitement, and it’s definitely a slower paced story, but the character exploration keeps it interesting. In this book you get to dive into Padme’s head and find out what her reasoning is, who she is as a person, and why she does the things she does. You also get to find out who the handmaidens are and what their role is in all of this. It makes for an interesting book. Click here to read our full review.

On Station At Celebration: Day 0

Roqoo Depot is in Chicago! For my first day in town, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I’d been to Chicago before, so I’ve already been to the museums (which are great), but there was one place I never got to visit – Galloping Ghost Arcade. I’m glad I went.

Jimmy Mac on Rebel Force Radio has mentioned this place a couple times, so I decided to check it out. For $20 you get in and all the machines are set to free play. That means infinite lives/continues. They have a LOT of arcade machines. They even have another building that’s just pinball, but I didn’t check that one out. I ended up spending all my time in the arcade. They have a wide selection of games from all generations, but I have a sweet spot for the classics, so I had to try all those out. Tetris, the first Mario Bros. game, Donkey Kong, Dragon’s Lair, Joust, Qbert, and they had a bunch of Star Wars games.

Here’s a sample of just one of the many rows of arcade machines they had. Continue Reading On Station At Celebration: Day 0…
