Houston can be so unbearably hot, it's not the most pleasant place to visit in the summer. Usually when I'm visiting my family I prefer to stay indoors while the sun is out and then we head out to dinner/movies, etc., afterward. Rice Village used to be a place I'd go hang out when I was there, they had good restaurants, but it's been a long time since I was there. Not very much in terms of retro gaming stuff there other than a few overpriced shops.

I liked Solo.
Also, Darth Maul was a major character in Star Wars Rebels, so it's not like only Clone Wars fans are going to know what's going on there. I think Rebels is a great show.
Been enjoying your E3 Hypetrain videos, looking forward to the Sony and Nintendo videos :)

You're telling me, it was 102 degrees yesterday. I couldn't believe it... Also Sierra and I love Rice Village, we used to go all the time!
Retro gaming stuff is very lack-luster here. The best thing I can think of is that the Game Preserve Arcade is in Spring, but that's still a long drive from here.

I think Solo is pretty flawed, and the more I think about it, the more I'm thinking it was just Okay. It's fine though, it's not BAD, I just don't like it as much as most things Star Wars.
