Any plans for another Jedi Knight game? If so, they should redo a lot of stuff to really make the game B.A. Graphics are given, but even more lightsaber gameplay and force interaction, so pretty much like making "The Force Unleashed" Jedi Knight style. And what about the story, should it be Jedi Knight III, or JKA II. And should you play Kyle or a completely new character all together and just have him and/or Jaden be NPC's? I'm just throwing out ideas, but what do you guys think? :sithk:

Not in a long time. LucasArts still has TFU, Battlefront 3, Kotor 3, and the Kotor MMO to worry about.

I'd love to see one, and personally I'd hope it centered on Kyle, even though it's very unlikely.

I dunno, I was just not pleased with the very impersonal storyline for JKA.

Tru Fax.

Dark Forces/ Jedi Outcast style storyline with improved lightsaber combat = <3

improved lightsaber combat

It would have to be made for the Wii.

No, that is a stupid idea and you know it. :p

PC, and maybe 360 and PS3. Wii would just be dumb, we don't need a Star Wars themed Red Steel. Awesome graphics, cuttable environment, smooth animation, awesome light saber fights.

And awesome controls.

They would have to do it perfect, otherwise it'd just be a flailing Wii-mote affair.

Well, the Wii could never be "perfect" in terms of literal lightsaber control.

However, what is cooler, a flailing Wii-mote affair? Or a button-mashing analog stick-jerking affair?

I guess proper PC controls could be pretty sweet, though. If they were done correctly with the mouse and not to difficult or impractical.

I think it'd be okay if it was released on the Wii, but the Wii isn't doing so hot as they were when the system released because they're just not releasing the right games, a lot of them are family oriented and it's just not as fun.

So if it was released on Wii, it could not be exclusively. It'd have to be for PS3 and the 360 as well.

Sorry, I was just thinking because when I thought of next gen JK, I thought better graphics, story, characters, and gameplay. Not how it would be controlled. And if it'll be on the Wii *all hypothetically* it wouldn't really have that next gen flair.

I for one want to see RC2 on PS3 and 360. I mean keep some of elements that made RC1 great HUD ect. Have a longer campaign more weapons and enviroments and vehicles. Also up the multiplayer to be like Halo or Gears of War but not 3rd person. What do you guys think?

I personally do not want to see another JK game. They stuffed up with JKA. They mostly stuffed up with JKO, but gave it a medium story line that fixed all that wrong-ness.

Why the heck they decided to use the Quake 3 engine on those game is beyond me. I would not have used the IDTECH3 engine, if I were creating a game unless I was planning on releasing that game free.

Say no to the IDTech3 engine!

What was wrong with id tech 3? Raven was already familiar with it, and they generally worked with id tech back since the doom days.

Especially since it wasn't really that old when they were making JKII.

I am tired of waiting for news on JKIII, i want a console version though, with Kyle Katran!!!!!

MrWally
11-23-2007, 12:48 AM
I'd kinda hate to see another Kyle Katarn game, to be honest.

I mean, Kyle is awesome and all, but what's left? His character has been developed just as far as it possibly can be.

Anything added in terms of Kyle Katarn would just be unnecessary or stupid in the sense that it would be painstakingly obvious that they were just using his character to continue a franchise and keep making money.

I want a game based on Dark Forces: Soldier for the Empire. It would be cool to play as Kyle in his Imperial days.

I suppose, but I think if they were to make JK3, it should have kyle, but not as a playable character.

MrWally
11-23-2007, 11:40 PM
Well I think that is a given. I thought you post implied playing as Kyle Katarn.

Kyle Katartn... as an BOSS character OoOOooOoOOoO

No, I asked whether or not you think you should play Kyle, Jaden, or a new character.

Well, Kyle is still In Action during the war against the Vongs, along with Jan Orz. So yeah it might be fun if you play as him during those days even. I mean, we may be able to play as Jan!

Yes, playing as a student of Kyle just don't work well as seen in JA. I mean it does not even work in Metal Gear series either... that wimp flag Raiden...

I'd rather play back as jaden, JA's story made it in such a way where that if you play as kyle again it wont make much sense anymore.

MrWally
11-25-2007, 01:47 PM
But the thing was Jaden had absolutely no redeeming traits, no character progression, no development. I understand that they wanted to make the game experience somewhat customizable but I felt that it took away too much.

I'd rather they introduced a new character with a very specific background and a very developed character progression and story arc.

Darca Lar
11-25-2007, 02:11 PM
Yeah, they really didn't say much about Jaden except that he was from Coruscant and made a lightsaber without formal training. I would like to see more about Jaden, but not as the main character for JKIII.

GeneralPloKoon
11-25-2007, 03:16 PM
What the heck was Jaden anyways...

Customization + Continuity = Fail.

Darca Lar
11-25-2007, 07:08 PM
I wouldn't say fail, it was more like a borderline D. I mean I still play the game from time to time, and I like the general storyline, but overall it wasn't the best game.

But wouldnt a new character make it more difficulty for LA to expand on the story of the entire series? :D Then they will also have to figure out what role jaden has to play (Not to mention the race, species and gender for jaden) which will ultimately affect the role of kyle, luke and possibly rosh. :rolleyes:

Darca Lar
11-26-2007, 04:11 PM
Well it doesn't have to an in-game appearance or anything, just like Kyle talking about him or something, and since he's canon LS, then Rosh is still alive.
