Ah, tonfa lightsabres.

It seems the developers sat around asking each other "what would be the best way of making a lightsabre EVEN MORE hazardous to the jedi who is using it?"...

Anyway, nuts to this game, and to all games that are not released immediately on the PC. The PC may be a dying gaming market, but I'll never leave my PC! NEVER!

The operative phrase being "deleted scenes" in that sentence. Since the scene didn't make it into the theatrical release we can't say that Shaak Ti really was killed by Grievous now, can we? :)

I'm done for. :smirk2: The Star Wars databank article for Shaak Ti (http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/shaakti/) does indicate that it is believed she died in the Jedi Temple when Vader and the 501st attacked.

I dunno Nalukai. I guess you'll just have to play the game when it comes out to see what role Shaak Ti has in the game. Maybe she will appear as a Force ghost. Who knows? :giveup:

The combat in The Force Unleash better be >= to the combat in Ep III:ROTS: The combat and lightsaber combat better be greater than the combat in ROTS or equal in value to the combat feature in Ep. III the game.

Or, this game will be headed to the trash compactor, as the worst Jedi game yet.
A disappointment it will be!

Focus on Force powers only not; combat with lighsabers also.

I'm sure that many Jedi fans out there don't want to only use the powers of Force in combat, but also the lightsaber, especially with the great anticipation of seeing the Euphoria AI engine in action.
Well, with the anticipation I have. :)

I agree. I hope for a game (maybe not TFU) that's nearly entirely based around the "art" of lightsaber combat. Fluid animations, movie style and brand new stances and strikes. From epic saber locks to simply seeing the light of the saber flood and reflect off the environment as it ignites.

I want to see the greatest weapon of any movie, game, or book get the attention it deserves. Not to say that force powers or the storyline should be ignored, but let's face it, in the end we all just want to cut things in half with a blade made entirely out of energy.

Let's see the evolution of lightsaber combat in a game (and then bring that game to the PC as well).

DarthMuffin
02-17-2007, 10:45 PM
I would gladly use all of these cool force powers a couple of times on whoever decided to release the game on those wimpy consoles and not the PC. I also feel bad for the Wii people out there; but snobbing us PC users over the single interesting Star Wars release since KotOR? That stinks.

:eyeraise: Delayed to 2008? Already? It was less than a month ago that they said November 2007.

I guess you can look at this using the "glass half full" or "glass half empty" philosophy. I say this is a good sign that LucasArts wants to ensure this game's quality is great and is willing to deal with the egg on their collective faces now to extend the game's expected release date instead of rushing out a sub-par game to meet a deadline.

Not that I'll be playing this game if it doesn't come out for PC but that's just my two cents. :)

Starwars.com has posted a Haden Blackman article about TFU's production stages. Seems like LucasArts want to give the fans a view into the making of TFU, similar to what Lucasfilm did with the movies. Haden does say they've hit "First Playable" with TFU.

PoiuyWired

Hmmm... Shaak Ti seems to have some rancor lovers in a crystaline planet...

I am not sure about Vos though, I mean with his ability(and his master's) to remain hidden even from the force, his underhand tactics, his great saber skills(with some vapaad even), his cortosis gauntlet, his willingless to call unpo the darkside to save his crew... and chances are he would be living happily with his old master Tholme the ninja jedi and maybe even Tholme's homegirl... I personally would avoid the whole Vos thing, he would be better in his own series.

As for Dar Woman, I though she is supposed to be Vader's target?

I would love to see the fight with ventress. That would be one nasty fight. Ferus Olin is also expacted.

It's got a few clips in it that I hadn't seen before and interview footage with Jim Ward, Peter Hirschmann, and Haden Blackman on how the concept for The Force Unleashed came about and was developed.

I particularly enjoyed the music they used at the end of the clip when I recognized it was music from KotOR 2: TSL. :D
