Will Raven remember to include a good selection of taunts that can be assigned to several keyboard keys? I for one hope so. It's been quite a while since a FPS came with a large selection of audio taunts that you could hear when you said it to everybody.

The last few I've played let you send them but you couldn't hear them yourself when you sent it. Then others have been limited to a single audio taunt depending on the character. The custom taunts made by users are all well and good, but they don't replace a large selection of taunts that ships with the game that everybody can hear.
I've been missing that capability since Outlaws. Tossin' audio taunts around in a fire fight was some of the best fun yet. ;)

it'd be great if they put a few old skool star wars ones on. I cant see it but never the less..

What about your visual taughts?

no no no, you got it backwards matt-windu. At least i think you do.

*pelvic thrust*

Man, that puts a weird image in your head doesn't it?

My friend Zero made some of his own taunts for MotS. It was really cool. Sounds and text. So you'd press the taunt key, and you would hear the music, and be able to read it at the same time. He had some beavis and butt head taunts that were the funniest thing to use while having a lightsaber battle. :p

(this is the second time i've had to edit this thing)

Oh yeah! I'm all for the audio taunts. Those just rock in Multiplayer.

Audio taunts would certainly be fun. I hope they have an autotaunt as well if they include bots. And I too think they should be firmly grounded in Star Wars. I mean, how about these during MP...

"Laught it up, Fuzzball!"
"He's got a Thermal Detonator!"
"It's not my fault!"
"You scruffy-looking Nerf Herder!"
"Kiss a Wookie!"
"Let the Wookie win!"
"Impressive...most impressive!"
"You are not a Jedi yet!"
"Obi-Wan has taught you well!"
"I'm just full of surprises!"
"I have a bad feeling..."
"That's one less Rebel!"
"Come on Goldenrod!"
"Everyone has delusions of grandeur!"
"Close the Blast Doors!"
"We're quite safe from your pitiful band!"
"Start the evacutation!"

Heh ;)

You forgot:

"It is your destiny..."

Oh, oh, and Jabba's evil laugh... :)

Im sure Raven will make loads of taunts...hopefully more than in EF..lol.

And who voted my down one....sly!

That would be mint in SP if you got out a thermal detonator and they screamed 'hes got a thermal detonator' or something to that effect,

having decent sound effects is very important, hopefully more than one noise when you return blaster fire or swing your saber is included..its a must

I hope they include a good surround sound system and EAX like they did in EF....that really adds effect!

06-09-2001, 09:04 PM
Yeah, I agree. Ditch the A3D.

I hope there'll be skirmish mode that involves being able to play a whole variety of characters like in Elite Force. Each would have it's on set of custom taunts, but you should be able to customize it by mix-and-matching them together.

Arnt you just soooooo glad the license has been given to RAVEN! AT last we can get some quality games.

06-10-2001, 01:52 PM
It is a big plus for us.

You forgot this one too:

"You will join me or Die!"

06-10-2001, 03:39 PM
I think "He's got a thermal detonator!" would get annoying after awhile...especially if it is your favorite weapon.

06-10-2001, 04:42 PM
"All too easy" would have to be included.

who can forget, when the other team is outnumbered 7 to 4,

"Wipe them out, all of them"

All good suggestions.

Now, to get this topic back above all 8 light saber topics, let's not forget about...

"You are no match for the Dark Side."
