Link roundup

1. "The Dodgers will provide fans with free programs this year. Not just a scorecard and rosters, mind you, but a glossy 80-page magazine with stories, photographs and advertisements."

2. The sequel to Republic Commando that never was:

There were two competing stories that were being pitched, one being developed by Tim Longo and one by lead level designer Kevin Schmitt. In one, you would have played the side story of Revenge of the Sith and carried out Order 66, hunting down Jedi as a team. In the other, Sev would have been the first man in the Rebellion army -- the tagline was something like, "Every Rebellion begins with a single soldier."

Tim's plan would have had Sev start the Rebellion army, training a new generation of soldiers to fight the Empire: In my own imagining, I like to believe he'd go after his pod-brothers and counter-program them so they could fight the Empire together.
