I sure am. Hopefully it'll take on traits of Starcraft, since I loved that game. :)

Sometimes when I buy the game for full price it wasnt what I expected and I wasted all the money. But when I buy it for a lower price and it isnt what I expected atleast I didnt waste all that money. :D

If my comp will run it, I'll be grabbing it right off. I love Galactic Battlegrounds, but this sounds a lot better :)

No site, and there won't be one for a while. LucasArts usually launch their full sites about 2 months prior to a game's release.

As for me, I hate this game. Yes really, I am not even posting on a fan forum for it right now ;)

Won't you need a car to get to the store first Rogue? Or did you finally get one?

Anyway, I've been "playing" Star Wars since it came out and I'm not about to let the last movie's release going to stop me. Yes I will buy it and I will continue to play in the world I love. I just hope there are gold bikinis.

ill get it as soon as its out, knowing swgb this will be good ^^

I cannot say if I will be excited because I never knew that game before. From what developer is it?

Com Raven
01-04-2005, 04:08 AM
Petroglyph Games. A lot of those guys come from Westwood and worked on several C&C games.

Pho3nix
01-04-2005, 02:35 PM
Yes me definately! I hope it will be as good as Command&Conquer Generals! :)

I waited 2 bloody years for this! I WILL GET THIS GAME!

ahem...yes I will get it.

kipperthefrog
01-04-2005, 07:10 PM
I hope they base it on the warcraft 3 thing...

you know, have a war strategy game with "heroes" with speacial abilities...

Revan Solo
01-04-2005, 10:12 PM
...Or on The Battle for Middleearth. I think you mean such things?

kipperthefrog
01-05-2005, 04:00 AM
Yeah! thats what i mean. i also hope it has a good editor and thr classic trilogy characters.

Com Raven
01-05-2005, 04:34 AM
Hmm, I haven't played BfME yet, but I don't think they should go the WC3 heroes route. While I love WC3 and think that then hero systenm with xp, items and quests is fantastic for a fantasy game, I don't think it would really fit in with the SW universe.

PoM
01-05-2005, 04:56 AM
What is that game?
A new starwars: Galactic battlegrounds?

At this moment, I am going to install The Battle for Middleearth!
When you want, I can say you later what type of game it is.

I cann't wait for a new star wars RTS. My brother and I are checkin out the forums every day for new- news.

WOO HOO!!! :D

Ever since GB online community left I've been waiting for this game so Yea I'm really excited about this game.

swphreak
01-05-2005, 08:57 PM
Gah, I'm gone for a week, and I come back to a new forum for the new RTS... got lots of catching up to do.

I can;t wait for the game. I've been waiting at GB.com since DMUK mentioned a possible "GB2"

Yea I was not online for 2 days then I come back and the new forum is up. I like the red BTW gives it a nice RotS touch.

I'll probably wait and see if it is going to be any good or not.

This game looks totally awesome. I am definatly getting it. Not waiting for any price drops lol. It looks so good!

I love SW!

Will it be out in this year? (Sorry if someone asked this before):)

Augustus_Leto
01-08-2005, 05:56 AM
Yes, it will be out in Q4 this year, and I will buy it, although I hope my pc will be able to play it.

Alegis
01-08-2005, 06:59 AM
Has been a while since I played an RTS so I'm definitely up for it. May not buy it the first day, waiting for user reviews, but hopefully pretty soon anyways

Demo!

Sithmaster_821
01-08-2005, 12:46 PM
Oh yes!

Been waiting for this game on GB.com longer than I care to remember.

Sithmaster you are far from alone in that.:p

FroZticles
01-08-2005, 02:28 PM
I advise you not to believe the reviews its all about your choice and not others. Most pc games now don't have demos so I would not rely on waiting for a demo.

*shrug*
It's all in your reviewer preference. I've found a group of reviewers that I like and that I can comfortably swear by. Other people have their own preferences. So I feel quite safe believing reviews from the people I trust.

Sithmaster_821
01-08-2005, 05:37 PM
I find Gamespot, no matter how much I disagree with them during the heat of the moment, has the reviews that, in hindsight, I usually think are fair or are .1 or .2 points off (except for certain games). For example, I was cursing Gamespot out after Clone Campaigns got like 6.something from them, but, in reality, after playing with the expansion, I definitely felt LA could have and should have added more stuff, which was their complaint too.

I cant wait for this game to come out! :maul:

stingerhs
01-11-2005, 06:33 AM
to be honest, i'm not sure what i'm going to do at this point. i think i'll wait a bit before i decide whether or not i'll buy it. maybe after gamespot reviews it.... :(

Kroven
01-17-2005, 05:49 AM
yeah..exited for it yes..not sure but i might wait for a price drop, just maybe:cool:

Admiral Vostok
01-17-2005, 12:07 PM
I'm probably going to wait for the price drop, but at the very least I'm going to wait for reviews from the community to come in. I'm a bit pessimistic about how good this game is going to be, so I want to make sure it is good before I buy it.

SWGB on the other hand I was so certain was going to be great I bought it the first day it was released, and don't regret doing so at all. It's my favourite game, I still play it frequently.

lukeiamyourdad
01-17-2005, 01:46 PM
You're too pessimistic for your own good :xp:

Admiral Vostok
01-17-2005, 10:49 PM
Usually I'm quite an optimistic person, but you know how militaristic I can be with matters relating to Star Wars :D

DK_Viceroy
01-18-2005, 01:03 AM
I was wondering when you were gonna come crawling out of the woodwork :p I was missing someone who can match my knowledge :D

and I presume you know Windu has forever departed :eek:

Enjoy Europe?

Admiral Vostok
01-18-2005, 01:21 AM
I did enjoy Europe immensely, thanks for asking. Thank you also for the respect of my knowledge :D

Windu was talking of leaving before I left. I daresay his antics shall be missed.

DK_Viceroy
01-18-2005, 01:25 AM
Though his Brick wall variety of arguing will not be missed:p

Glad you Enjoyed it, good thing you came to Britain when you did there's been floods everywhere and gales. good thing My Computer is on the second floor in a water tight room.

Glad your back anyway, no one else round here was much of a challenge.

Jan Gaarni
01-18-2005, 06:44 AM
If this "Windu" character should pop up again, you be sure to point him out to me?

Not that I will treat him any other way than anyone else. :)

I'm not the kind of guy that won't give people a chance ... or 2. ;)

Other than that, let's not turn this into a debate about a fellow (ex?) poster, shall we?

DK_Viceroy
01-18-2005, 07:57 AM
he's easy to spot he's got a Hologram Darth Maul Avatar and you can see his birck wall style at the old GB forums.

Though I will point him out, though you'll see a frenzy of activity in a particular tyhread if he makes his presence felt.

I wonder if there is going to be an expansion pack when they'll start it/release it.

Admiral Vostok
01-22-2005, 02:05 AM
As others have already suggested, I believe if there is an expansion pack it will add the prequel armies. Although so far we have only really seen major ground battles in the prequels, those who have seen the teaser trailer for Revenge Of The Sith will know there is at least one major space battle that would be a shame not to be able to recreate in this RTS.

DK_Viceroy
01-22-2005, 05:53 AM
though you never know people may make a mod to add prequel in:p

Admiral Vostok
01-23-2005, 02:38 AM
I'm sure if no expansion was readily including them then they would be left to modders. But mods are never as good as the real thing.

lukeiamyourdad
01-23-2005, 06:23 AM
Oh you would be amazed by some mods. Really, some mods are better then the real thing.

DK_Viceroy
01-23-2005, 08:35 AM
for once I and luke are in perfect agreement, since modders arn't working for a profit they won't be afraid to innovate.

Dagobahn Eagle

It didn't occur to you that there was a slight chance that you wouldn't get an unbiased answer from a fan site;)?

I'm sure if no expansion was readily including them then they would be left to modders. But mods are never as good as the real thing.
Someone has never downloaded a mod in his life:D .

Forgotten Hope versus Battlefield 1942: Forgotten Hope by far.

And that's just one example.

Amen...just amen...

Plenty of mods can surpass the original. Look at Eve of Destruction(for BF1942 mind you) and BFVietnam.
Eve of Destruction actually managed to keep a good gameplay without overpowering anything. BFVietnam...let's say it wasn't so well balanced or made...

I think they will jsut release a sequel to the game called Republic at War :)

Dagobahn Eagle
03-09-2005, 09:35 AM
As long as they don't pull a The Sims and release a game with too few features, for then to release 20 expansion packs s..l..o..w..l..y filling the features in and sell those expansion packs at $14 each, I'm happy. I want a finished game:).

Falmarin
03-09-2005, 04:19 PM
I'm probably gonna wait for the demo; I'm actually very optimistic that this game will kick ass, but I'm always a bit apprehensive when purchasing games.

EDIT: with to will, lol.

FroZticles

I know what you mean you go and buy these games that you think are great because you watched a trailer that was awesome and you play it for 2 weeks and get bored.

I like games that keep me entertained for a few years :)
