Hey all!

My local games magazine (www.pu.nl) recently visited Skywalker Ranch for a new play with TFU. The journalist mentioned some new interesting facts. I'll list them right here, for your information :)

-You'll visit Khasyyk at least twice (truth about your father?). The journalist describes the second visit as a...grey and miserable place. The Empire has done it's work with enslaving the Wookiees.
-The famous CGI Star Destroyer scene is PLAYABLE. He doesn't mention if it's a quick-time effect though.
-Raxus Prime is the 'easter egg planet.' He mentions he at least recognised 'something' from KOTOR. He also says there's more from other games. He doesn't tell anything specific though, not wanting to spoil it all.
-Starkiller is The Apprentice's CODE NAME, not his real one.

Allright, back to Azeroth. Ztalker away! :)

Oh, what the freaking ΣhιΓ. I knew they wouldn't be able to resist putting that into this game. My faith in TFU has been cleaved neatly in half.

Oh, that's nice! :)

Seems like the perfect place for the final battle.

Hmm... exactly how, though?

-Raxus Prime is the 'easter egg planet.' He mentions he at least recognised 'something' from KOTOR. He also says there's more from other games. He doesn't tell anything specific though, not wanting to spoil it all.
A rusted, barely working orange-colored droid which shout "Die, meatbags!" before shooting PROXY on the chest?

-Starkiller is The Apprentice's CODE NAME, not his real one.

Thank God.

Overdoing the force powers is one thing, but this is just preposterous. I've given my opinion on this subject before, so that's all I'm saying here.

I didn't say that Naga Sadow's case was any less preposterous.

Yeah, Starkiller's probably gonna learn something about his dad.

-The famous CGI Star Destroyer scene is PLAYABLE. He doesn't mention if it's a quick-time effect though.

Wow. Just and simply wow.

-Raxus Prime is the 'easter egg planet.' He mentions he at least recognised 'something' from KOTOR. He also says there's more from other games. He doesn't tell anything specific though, not wanting to spoil it all.

I do remember HK talking about Raxus Prime in K2 and then Atton, somehow heard it and commented.

Shouldn't HK be on Mustafar by now though? :xp:

-Starkiller is The Apprentice's CODE NAME, not his real one.

This we already knew.

This is outrageous!

Nuff said.

Yes, thanks for the update. It is a good thing that "Starkiller" is just his codename. :)

I hope that I get a Xbox 360 between now and September. :/

Thanks for the update, Ztalker. I wonder what we'll see on Raxus Prime...

The parts about the star destroyer and the code name were already known. Interesting stuff otherwise, though.
