View Full Version : Anybody else getting this game?

It looks so cool. I don't have any age of empire games (besides demos) and this looks worthy of my money.

07-27-2001, 09:55 PM
Loved Aok, so possibly. Waiting for reviews first, though.

I'm going to preorder it. :)

07-28-2001, 12:04 AM
EVERYBODY else will want this game!!!

If it's just rehash of AoK, I'll buy it. I don't have either AoE games, so I would be just as new for me.

I they wander too much into innovation... they might be on a collision course with failure (ooOHH the beautiful phrase :eek: )

In other words... if it's good, I'll buy it. But not when it comes out.

07-28-2001, 12:08 AM
I predict this game will become a great-er i mean will become great and be a best seller and win a pc gamer choice awards

That would be awesome, and we'd finally have a really fun Star Wars rts on our hands.

07-28-2001, 01:14 AM
i thought the other sw rts games were great, that's why i can't wait for this game. and since everybody's saying the sw rts games sucked, i guess i'll end up liking this one alot more than them! heheehe.

07-28-2001, 03:24 AM
as soon as you can pre-order this game from the internet stores (like Amazon) that's when when i'm buying it and i'm having it as 1 day delivery! The wait is driving me nuts! Is the wait killing you guys too?

07-28-2001, 08:35 AM
it's not killing me. better to have a good game than a rushed game.

Darth Vader
07-28-2001, 10:57 AM
im preordering

07-28-2001, 11:09 AM
I think i'll wait for it to come out. I know i'll get it sometime around then anyways. AAAHHHH it's Darth Vader!!! *hops in his star viper and goes to hyperspace without setting a course*

07-28-2001, 11:23 AM
I am definitely looking forward to this game. I think that I am the only person that still plays Force Commander! I liked that to be honest, even though it slapped my pc around!

07-28-2001, 11:31 AM
hey, force commander ruled!!! The camera was one of the features that I liked.

Jar Jar
07-28-2001, 12:14 PM
Mmmm... sweet sweet Galactic Battlegrounds. I can hardly wait to watch my Gungan army whip Nabooblian hiney. Take that, Queen Thinks-She's-So-Big Amidala!:amidala:

Shadow Hunter
07-28-2001, 01:31 PM
hey all!! [btw rogue 15, vader doesn't have a star viper and he wouldn't be stupid enough to jump into hyperspace without plotting a course xP heh just foolin'] anyways, I can't believe u people!! (e.g. I'm gonna wait for reviews blah blah blah =)) ) man I'm gonna pre-order it BEFORE you can pre-order it!! I haven't played SWFC before cuz I heard it really really really sucked, but lemme tell u I loved SWR!!! I'm a 100% Star Wars Addict xP!!!!! cya'all!

[edit] ummmm mr. darth vader, ehm, it's 'impressive, most impressive, not very impressive xP

07-28-2001, 02:41 PM
Well I have all the AOE games, but I hope this new game is a little more then AOE with Star Wars characters, I'll probably wait for the reviews.

07-28-2001, 04:46 PM
hey, shadow, i was talking about myself. where's the emiticon thing for the star viper? perhaps an animated gif....i think i can find one somewheres...

07-28-2001, 05:12 PM
Im gonna pre-order a copy aswell, and oh hi everyone.

07-28-2001, 06:27 PM
I am not a huge fan of AoE, did not really correspond to my tastes, but i admit it is an all round solid game. My type of game must have more depth strategy and tactic wise, like Shogun:Total war.

But If you Add the Star Wars universe to the AoE engine, that is to tempting for me. I will have to buy it.

Tie Guy
07-28-2001, 08:31 PM
I liked Rebellion, and AOE, and i'm definately getting this game ASAP.

07-28-2001, 08:37 PM
Oh yeah man I am definitly getting this game. *Starts to drool*

Tie Guy
07-28-2001, 09:50 PM
I've been thinking, and i decide that i'm going to get this game twice! Just in case one break on the way home or one has a scratched CD. Plus, one isn't enoguh anyways, i want play it on my laptop too.

07-28-2001, 10:24 PM
of course I'm getting this :)
hopefully it is as expandable as Starcraft and as sweet as AOE... with a mountain of Star Wars

Tie Guy
07-28-2001, 11:01 PM
I'm pretty sure that it will be all three of those things, a truly ewesome mix.

07-29-2001, 03:08 AM
Yeah 15 I agree. I read a lot of the reviews of FC. They did not like the camera, but I loved it. It was like a new game every time I played it!

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 12:26 PM
Hey SabianMasteef,

If there was one thing i didn't like about about FoCom, it wasn't the camera, it was the interface. It was just so hard to use, especially for a C&C player like me. I also didn't like the commandpoints system. Add that to the kind of slow gameplay and a little bit of difficulty with the camera, and it didn't turn out very well for me. Plus, it ran kinda slow on my Comp.

07-29-2001, 06:34 PM
I'm going to buy it as soon as it comes out!!!!!! its going to be awesome!!!!!!!!:yoda:

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 06:55 PM
I think we can all agree.

Which part are you looking forward to the most, Khabarakh?

07-30-2001, 12:49 AM

I agree about the interface. Plus that thing took up a third of the screen. That got annoying. There were some down times, but when the enemy came at you they really came at you hard.

07-30-2001, 01:59 AM
is anyone getting this game? IS ANYONE GETTING THIS GAME?!! if you dont your a fool. this game looks like (so far) the best thing to ever happpen to Star Wars games (besides xwa, of course). but who am i to say this game is going to be any good. i guess i'll wait and see how the game gets reviewed before i buy it, still a little sore from that Force Commander experince. $40 bucks down the drain.

07-30-2001, 10:34 AM
I agree that Force Commander's interface was tricky, but most importantly, the framerate draaaaaaaagged. Even today, I still do not know how to upgrade my units...

Tie Guy
07-30-2001, 10:52 AM
upgrade units?......Oh yeah, i remember now, i think that they had to go into the ugrade building or something like that.

07-30-2001, 01:13 PM
I did not wait for the reviews on force commander and was ashamed for falling for the Lucas Arts trap. But this time everything looks dang good, and they could have a great hit on their hands if they dont fall for the same mistakes FC made.....Poor graphics, poor resource management, poor AI, poor controls. But in the end it comes down to one thing really......is it STAR WARS!!!!!! Thats all that matters.

07-30-2001, 01:26 PM
I gona get it SOON as possible! !!!

07-30-2001, 01:54 PM
ME TOO! :atat: :atat: -------------- :c3po: AHHHH!

Tie Guy

WElcome TIE

i never wait for the reviews, becasue you can't always trust what thye say. Take Jedi Power Battles, i loved that game but all the reviewers hated it.

07-30-2001, 04:44 PM
I LOVED that game! :D

07-30-2001, 04:46 PM
Yeah Reviewers suck, only listen to them if they talk about Bugs. Otherwise the game is as you please.

That last sentence made noo sense whatsoever

Tie Guy
07-30-2001, 05:17 PM
it makes pefect sense.

The main clause of the sentence is "i loved that game, but teh reviewers hated it." It's a compuond sentence connected by the conjuction and. The secondary clause is "Take Jedi Power Battles for example," This is an adjectival subordinate clause that explains what the subject pronoun used in the main clasue of the sentence is. Therefore, it makes perfect sense.

Just had to clear that up :D

07-30-2001, 05:41 PM
"Anybody else getting this game.."

imagine the headlines:

"Star Wars enthusiast buys GB; finds out he's the only one"


I think I'll buy two. or three.

07-30-2001, 05:43 PM
No No No No No No! I was talking about a sentence I wrote mmkay?

But still don't trust reviewers

07-30-2001, 08:36 PM
fair enough.
but you know, i review music. that's kind of the same way.
Rebellion was proof that games are also just a matter of taste

07-30-2001, 08:42 PM
I can't wait to get my hands on the Empire and crush the puni worthles Rebellion Mwhahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can forsee that It will win good awards coz its gonna be a GREAT GAME!!!!!!!!

The Rebellion Will FALL!!!!:atat: :obi:

Tie Guy
07-30-2001, 10:54 PM
When it comes out we can play multiplayer, and i'll show you how powerful the Rebellion can be.

07-30-2001, 10:56 PM
And I will demonstrate the imeasurable "GUNGAN RUSH" , and wipe out your puny armies with wave after wave of Jar Jar's destroying both your puny armies :p

07-31-2001, 05:57 AM
...while he'll use the Trade Federation's Jedi-heavy army to Force-choke all your Jar-Jars.

:D :p

Tie Guy
07-31-2001, 11:53 AM
Then i'll use the Wookies' Berserkers to run all over you troops and jedi.

07-31-2001, 06:29 PM
...and to round things off, the Naboo army will storm all over you with their speeder-massed army.

07-31-2001, 06:35 PM
You guys are already getting in to this game, I can see.

07-31-2001, 06:41 PM
in my mind, i've already completed it... :D

Tie Guy
07-31-2001, 07:16 PM
Really, i'm still on the fifth level. :D

07-31-2001, 07:18 PM
...that's why i order from the internet and you go to a store..

Tie Guy
07-31-2001, 10:35 PM
Actually, it's becasue i'm playing the Wookie campaign and you played the training campaign :D

08-01-2001, 08:11 AM
you're right !
i always play the training campaign after i finished everything else, just to be complete !

Havoc Stryphe
08-01-2001, 01:22 PM
No! we just registered on a board devoted to a game that won't come out for another 3 months, and post on the board through all hours of the day because we had nothing better to do! ;)

Of coure I'm getting it, I already pre-ordered it!

08-01-2001, 08:55 PM
I am planning too, I may even get rid of Emperor:Battle for Dune who knows.

Tie Guy
08-01-2001, 09:07 PM
Hmm, i don't normally pre-order things, or order things on the internet at all. I've got a couple good stores where i can pick games up, but i don't know, i want to make sure teh store isn't delayed in gettting it. Oh well, i don't know....

08-02-2001, 09:51 AM
..and what if a store ran out before you ordered ?

You'd have Yoda's voice in the back of your head:

"Unexpected this is...and unfortunate."

Tie Guy
08-02-2001, 06:54 PM
They'd have it, i'd have my mom pick it up in the morning while everyones at school.

08-02-2001, 07:00 PM
She's a sweet person then, that mum of yours.

Tie Guy
08-02-2001, 08:22 PM
yes, but i have to describe the cover to her and tell her the exact name of the game so she can write it down. :D

08-02-2001, 08:24 PM
Lucky boy ;)

Master Yoda
08-02-2001, 08:37 PM
lol Im pre-ordering it!! BTW my army of wookies are going to get mad and pull your troops's arms out thier sockets...

08-03-2001, 08:50 AM
hey, that sounds just like how the writer in PC Gamer described it.. so maybe they would actually do that ??
(phat chance, but o well...)

Tie Guy
08-03-2001, 01:42 PM
very "phat" chance, but it is my wookies who will pull your arms out.

08-03-2001, 01:46 PM
fyi, if you noticed the coloring on the units in the screenshots, you would find out that you can put two of the same civs against each other.
so you'd have wookiee vs wookiee, ending up with no arms at all...

just thought of a new topic. hold on... (**makes new thread**)
