Galactic News Minute (5.16-5.22)
- Drew Karpyshyn compares Revan the video game character to Revan the novel character over at his blog.
To put it bluntly, Revan in the book will not be the uber-powered death machine you controlled at the end of the video game. You might have min-maxed your character to smack Darth Malak down in seconds without breaking a sweat, but in a book that battle would have been a brutal, hard fought affair spread over multiple pages. In a video game it’s fun to kill hundreds of Sith Masters, but in a book that would just be boring. It would suck out any drama or conflict or tension, and as an author I have no interest in writing that.
He writes much more about this, so head on over and check it out. [Link]
