Here goes:
If you could have either Obi-Wan or JediOutcast made for the PC which would you choose.

Note that the other project would be cancelled.

definitely JK2
the engine they are using is newer, and it looks more appealing to me as well...
i didnt like the characters of ep1 much

That's not right, the engine for Obi-Wan is completely new. Obi-Wan looked great, before they moved it to the XBox *mumbles something about LEC and microsoft*.
I do agree that I'd rather have a game that takes place after or during the first trilogy than one that takes place during episode 1. I think I would want Obi-Wan, but with the story of JK2.

Seriously though man JK2 will whip it out and smack it on the table like it aint no thang.

ok, my apoligizes, sometimes i make statements i know nothing about, well, i was eager to see OW, but now i largely prefer JK2

They are two different games
OW ended up mostly as a 3rd person action game, not a FPS like JO

I think you should choose based on the gameplay, sure the story and how they look is important, but they are nothing if you dont like the gameplay

Obi-Wan will never take off now. It sucks. When JK2 comes out there will be thousands of people in here. I've seen it happen in forums before. In the Taldren there are about 3 posts a minute, with a lot of people in there.

Dude, that's a dead link.

It sounds like they will be very different games:

Obi-Wan:
Based on Episode I
Single Player
No Editing
Saber focused
Xbox
releases this year

Jedi Knight 2:
"Original" sequel to EU material
Single and Multiplayer
Editing (high probability anyway)
Guns and sabers
PC Windows (at the very least)
releases next year

Both games sound appealing to me, except for the choice of platform for Obi-Wan.

Still, even barring that, I am far more excited about JK2. It looks to have better graphics, more variety in combat styles (not simply focusing on one weapon), multiplayer, and the possibility of extensive editing.

Yes, I'll have to wait longer for JK2, but then it will be interesting how each game seeks to accomplish it's goals.

Xbox really doesn't appeal to me at all, not even with something like a Star Wars game on it...

Letails... why do you think Microsoft was desperate enough to throw a ton of money at LEC to get Obiwan as an exclusive?? (that being what I speculate really happened) Didn't the same thing happen with Halo?

Bill Gates is banking on a popular Star Wars game to make people buy his sleaze-box, so he goes and steals a game that he knows a lot of loyal fans are waiting for to begin with. Only now instead of just buying the game to use on our PC's, we'd have to shell out 300-400 dollars for a sleaze-box first.

I fear this will become a trend with the sleaze-box. Microsoft SNATCHING good eagerly anticipated games away from the PC gamers in order to force (or at least persuade) people to buy the otherwise useless/unwanted/inferior sleaze-box. and for this reason I hope Obiwan fails.

I remember on a late night news program that some people were going to use the "sleaze-box" to make interactive pornos. They called in the seX-Box

JKO all the way! Obi-wan was appealing when it had the PC platform.

If it was delayed, but still going to be on the PC, then it would have been a cool game. But putting it on the X-Box was the biggest mistake LEC have ever made in their history.

Lets just put it this way, I would prefer jk and mots, over ob1, and I have been playing them for years........so, you know were my vote goes...however, I may see what ob1 has to offer, as I will be buying the x-box..and it cant be any worse the PM for pc and playstation can it??? :D

is that for real??? is that an officially sanctioned by microsoft sex-game/interactive-***** , or is this some kind of an illegal pirate underground thing?

seX-Boxes, single player fading away, ***** ... what happened to video games man?

Gonk should be shot, ran over, hung, cut open, stabbed, beat up more than a male chicken with no balls and then his eyeballs pulled out , hit his head off a wall several time get every supporting jk2 to sit on top of him and then tie him to a chair and make him say *JK2 WILL KICK OB1'S ASS.. I WAS REALLY RETARDED WHEN I WROTE THAT AND PLEASE WILL U FORGIVE ME FOR HAVING SUCH A DUFFED UP MIND!*
