*currently downloading*

Ack, two minutes to go..... x.x

One minute.... O.X

*Watching!* :D

Wow, even though this isn't that groundbreaking type of video, I am still enjoying it. The voices sound incredible and I like the step to not have the PC use a voice. I hate when characters sound dumb when I want them to sound like me.

Bastila sounds goooood....:D

Thanks for the heads up, JedEye! ;)

What a great game.......

Before I download these, I have to know... how spoilerish are these? Is it an entire scene from the game(mayor spoiler-material) or are it just several loose scenes tied together to form a trailer? (mildly spoiler-material)

Well it basically was the same thing in one part of the 21 min video. It first shows them in Anchorhead walking around with the dust and everything, then they approach Dark Jedi's but this time they talk, once I heard Darth Malak or something I closed the sound though, then re-opened it for when they started fighting and then it showed how different types of creatures talk with the voice overs annnd umm thats all, not really that much of a spoiler

I thought these videos were quite good, and they really showed off KOTOR's great features. The voice-acting sounds great, really Star Warsy. Although many people say the combat is too slow or they're missing the blocks + parries etc., I don't think it's that bad. Of course it's not really wild JK2 combat, but I still think it looks good. It fits in with this type of game as well. One of the only games I have seen that uses this type of real-time/turn-based combat system is Freedom Force on PC, and I really liked that game. Anyway, the videos look great, now let's just hope KOTOR is released very soon so that we can all jump into the Star Wars world.

Saw the movies... indeed, apart from the Dark jedi saying something(which can be easily blocked by turning off the sound and ignoring the text), there aren't many spoilers in here.

The combat system looks very good... and did I see Big Z actually hitting and hurting a Dark Jedi? Which, in my opinion, is great, it quenched my fears that the non-Force characters would be unable to play a crucial role against Dark Jedi.

Of course, seeing as how these characters are debugged, Zaalbar is probably incredibly strong to begin with with unnatural high statistics.
