I love that crack at the end of the Force Death. That is how I always thought it should be.

Ironic isn't it, I read somewhere that the New Jedi Order a.k.a. Luke and company get rid of the Sith "once and for all" by going to the most ummmm "Sithy" <--- lol planet and turning on the most devestating weapon, a black hole generator and suck all the sith/evil away for good, don't remember where I read that though.

That was an impressive trailer, I can't wait to start playing this. But I hope they have a really good new selection of new heads to use as your character.

Agrees. Hopefully this was from an earlier build, when they hadn't made new skins for the PC's heads. I don't feel like getting stuck using my regular Revan head for my new PC, being the one that was shown in the demo or one very similar to it IE; mullet man.

Although they probably have/will, so this is nothing.

The music... the bloody excellent music. I've always been a fan of movie soundtracks, and that final bit after one of the Darths(most likely skeleton-face) says "the vegeance of the Dark Side" is just bloody excellent. Is that a soundtrack from a movie, or is it exclusive for Knights of the Old Republic II? Anyone know?

And other than that... well, the game certainly looks Knights of the Old Republic I, just different areas and characters. And bloody hell, am I pumped. An excellent well-set together trailer, showing off some of the vistas and the characters. Looking forward to see how this'll all work out.

Now then, let's see what kind of speculation we can get off this trailer...

-Obviously, lots of Jedi were killed, the start showed that much. I was rather surprised to also see various skeletons on, what appears to be, Korriban. Were the other Sith murdered as well? (or perhaps Revan's doing after he found the starmap)

-Another interesting tidbit... after the evil voice says "One Last Jedi", there is a shot of, what I think it is, a Mandalorian village or base. My speculation : Survivors from Kun's Sith War on the moon near Onderon.

-Just who *IS* that bloke in a Sith Armor-like suit? He looks cool, methinks he might be the 'bad-ass' of the group(like Canderous)

-I find the kid before Mara to look suspiciously like a young version of Carth. Mmmmm...

-They're right. Mira *is* easy on the eyes :p

-Good lord, the old woman with the hood over her head has strange eyes.

-What the heck is that guy wearing in the shot before "One choice change change your life"? Who is he?

-Oh yeah, definately agree. The Force Choke/Death looks bloody nasty, evil, and vile. Perfect for the Sith Lords under us. :)

-And finally... that'll be Darth Sion at the end, I presume?

All in all, a definately good trailer, KotOR 2 has just become more a whole lot more interesting. From what I've heard, Winter 2004 can still mean the Winter for next year as well. (But I won't be complaining if it does slip into 2004 (without bugs of course) :) )

They will probably have all the heads from KOTOR and a half a dozen newer ones.



Wait a tick!... What if the great secret of KOTOR:TSL is that you are actually a clone of Revan then having the same available heads makes even more sense.

Burrie

:eek:

Thank you, now the big secret in KotOR:TSL is completely ruined.

:p

On the other hand, just what *can* the big secret be... hummm, I feel a thread coming on.

Good question. I'm not too sure if its exclusive to or for something else. I liked it but I didn't. It sounded like Star Wars, but at that same time it was a bit too Matrix-e. What I'm really hoping for is something a bit closer to K1's soundtrack. Mostly for continuity purposes, especially if Revan still has a role to play, if that makes sence. Which could still be difficult to pull off because, IIRC from the Obsidian boards, whats-his-name isn't composing this game. Anyways, if this is the new music direction the score for the games going to take I won't complain too much. As long as it still has the underlying Williams themes & it all doesn't have that Matrix beat, which is all IMO.

As for your other questions/discussion topics, that will have to wait until I'm off work & can get on a half desent comp that can actually play the trailer, so I can remember exactly what your talking about. P.O.S work junk :D

Wow, I can't wait! This is awesome. I heard HK-47 will be in the game, maybe he can tell us what the heck happened to Revan and the other guys?

A plot twist is surely afoot in KOTOR:TSL, so there "has" to be a secret of some sort.

According to the vid, your choice is what KOTOR:TSL is all about, so the galaxy on my PC is surely doomed! :D

Good eyes. Aye, definately mysterious bad guy vibe. (or just a random Dark Jedi who killed them all, but I doubt it)

As for me, I'm considering of starting off with a wholly different gender than the first Revan I played in KotOR, just to immediately get a different perspective. I'm already more than comfortable with the rules and setting, and if things are really that close to KotOR as they say it'll be, it won't be a problem.

Drat!!! Venom750 beat me to it! :D

I agree with Prime, I also don't mind using my usual 2 heads either.

I especially liked the variations of lightsaber colors. I saw a turqoise color, also what seemed to be orange, and another looked like it had an orange middle with a red outline. It looks great, winter seems so far away, but that is gonna make the game that much more fun. The anticipation is great. *Goes into a deep slumber awaiting Winter of '04* :eek:

LOL!!! Thats a good one FiEND!!! :D

That kind of goes with a guess of mine I posted above;

What if the great secret of KOTOR:TSL is that you are actually a clone of Revan then having the same available heads makes even more sense.

Yeah, Winter 2004 makes sense considering the engine and most everything else is already there from a technological standpoint. They just have to make a few modifications, add a few more arty details, and then the main gameplay story/dialogue etc. etc. and all done.
