Things We Saw Today: A Video Tour of Every Star Wars Video Game
IGN put together this super-cool montage of every Star Wars video game ever made. It’s fun to see not only how video game technology has evolved over the years, but how the medium has helped to expand the Star Wars universe. One of the best things about Star Wars is how immediately you want to be a part of that world when you first watch the movies. And there’s no better medium for letting you dive in and become an active player in a fictional world than video games.

- And right on time, Lena Dunham rolled in to illustrate what that AP article is talking about. Dunham wrote a defense of a white dude who wrote for her show, Murray Miller, after he was accused of raping Aurora Perrineau, a biracial woman of color, when she was only 17. I wish I could be surprised. Princess will have more on this on Monday. (via EW)

- And everyone’s favorite Deadpool character, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, will have some more independence in the sequel. “She is not my trainee anymore,” said Stefan Kapicic, who plays Colossus. “She definitely has approached the new level of X-Men as you can see. Even the haircut, all of the characters … the good thing is we have upgraded on so many levels.” (via The Hollywood Reporter)
