Is it just me or does the blue lightsaber in this screenshot look bigger than the ones in the first KOTOR?

Screenshot (http://mediaviewer.ign.com/ignMediaPage.jsp?media_id=2213891&object_id=608569&channel_id=227&page_title=Star+Wars+Knights+of+the+Old+Republic+I I%3A+The+Sith+Lords+Interview%2C+Part+1&adtag=network%3Dign%26size%3D468x60%26channel%3Drp gvault%26site%3Drpgvault_hub%26channel%3Dfeatures% 26type%3Dpartner)

Could this be one of the effects of the new lightsaber components?

Actually it looks like its a visual effect caused by the perspective. The shot looks like worms eye view with the blade pointed almost right at you.

Just my imagination then. Ah well.

I do like the massiveness of the setting in that pic, especially the whole huge docking bay or reactor room look, I just hope we have a little more up and down camera control in KOTOR:TSL just to take in the background stuff like that. :D

I seem to recall the Devs saying that free look would be a little more....freer :eyeraise:...this time.

It could be that the saber in the right hand (red) is a short saber and the saber in the left hand (MotF?) is a normal saber. Unless, of course, they changed this (i.e. no short sabers) and I am not up on that fact. If that is the case, then I am with Achillies.

They are two standard lightsabers in that screenie! :) And actually that blue color is growing on me! :D

The color looks pretty good. Just hope they take a look at fixing the end of the blades, to get rid of the weird point on the ends, or atleast try & blend it a little better. It could just be camera perspective, but they sure look crappy with that edge.

I was just going by way of the screenshot. I didn't look to see what the description was (where ever it might have been).

What??? :confused: Where do you see a mention of a description in my reply???

There is just the screenshot, of a PC wielding 2 standard lightsabers, one red in the far hand, and one blue-ish in the near hand.

The short saber has those two fin like things that surround the blade a little near the hilt and neither of those sabers have them.

:D

Can anyone recall seeing short sabers in the screenies or vids so far?

I never really understood why the offhand short weapon bonus applied to KOTOR. After all, afaik, lightsaber blades are weightless and I don't recall ever seeing a short lightsaber in the movies.

Let hope they have been done away with. :)

Agreed. I think the point was to add some sort of disadvantage to the two-weapon feat so that some people would feel compelled to play using Dueling *shrug*.

You'd think the much higher attack bonus would be enough...

:confused: I dunno what I was thinking. :confused:
I never actually looked at the short saber model, as I never use it.

I also hope they do away with it. It is not in the movies, and I never use it, so wasted space as far as I am concerned.

Prime don't forget the defense bonus Dueling adds as well. :D

And Jedi_5002 I was just playing! :D

I think it is brighter, light-blue, a bit wider even, but it doesn't look taller.

it's not the size that matters ... it's how you use it! :p

^^^:lol:, but for a lightsaber, not being too short does matter.

With that in mind Jedi_5002 you should probably go use that soft flat and comfortable piece of furnature, with pillow, sheets, and blankets, in the next room... it restores vitae and removes fatigue. :D
