Episode 1715: Turnip the Heat

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

You can get a lot of cool things if you just ask nicely. This is known as diplomacy, and happens when you talk to NPCs instead of fighting them.

All gamers should try this approach at least once.

[Reminder: Our guest commentators have not seen Rogue One. Part of the fun is seeing how their untainted impressions re-interpret the movie through the lens of our comic.]

If I see another Imperial star destroyer affected by gravity in the middle of deep space...

Oh wait, this time they're at a planet. So it makes sense that if they could somehow get on board the ship, and disable its controls, then it will crash.

For as much as people complain that Star Wars just reuses the same thing over and over again, I can't believe that's really what they're going to do. So watch it happen.

Transcript

Chirrut: On the bright side, Jim, now you can't crash a ship full of fuel into the tower you're currently climbing.
Bria: Hmmm.
Bria: Admiral Radish? Do you read me?
{beet} ← transcript-only joke
Admiral Raddus: Bria! What's your situation?
Bria: I've got the plans! I'm climbing to the top of the tower to escape. I need that gate open!
Admiral Raddus: We've tried bombing, but to no avail. It's too strong!
Bria: Hmm. We need to hit it with something bigger. Like a star destroyer!
[SFX]: pow pow pow pow pow {space battle outside Admiral Raddus's viewport}
Admiral Raddus: You mean an Imperial star destroyer? Maybe we'll just ask them nicely?
