great to hear a progress report. kinda is worriesome when you hear less and less news. sounds like the game is shaping up into the final product. also love the "cool moves" that can be performed.

watching the videos, the squad talk sounds great, not too much but just enough to remind me that they are their and more than just regular npcs. what seemed to be a boss battle sounded great. the noises from the guns and the music were terrific and made a real star wars feel to the video. also the teamate a.i. during that fight seemed smart (for a.i. controlled teamates) even without commands.

love this screen, seems that the game has the same type of subtle humor i enjoy in the movies

a warning to the people who hate to be spoiled, there is a small spoiler that may not even be considered a spoiler but may leave some wondering what they have just learned.

I love it that you can be revived, because usually i go frontlines but then again your mates can be revived (unlike you in them games) so i have to send them as bullet magnets...
filling you with enough energy to temporarily stay alive.
Temporarily? Unless they mean till you get killed again...


Nice to have an article again. Was also getting worried

I was impressed with the Kashykk (sp? yeah, I am lazy right now) movie. The architecture was greatly detailed, and everything had a dark, suspensful feel, a contrast to the cartoonish JO and JA. Good ole SW, indeed.

The weapons also seem to be hard-core.

Heh, I just noticed: Look at the pic Pad posted, in the blue part on the left of the scope. :)

yeah, i guess it could be ... thought it was a commando, and since he was in the 'border' of the scope it was distorted somehow. either that, or he's just very skinny.
