Did anyone notice how quickly the force energy is consumed when he did force lightning? seemed fast. and force jump took a quarter of force pool.
BTW, that's some of the smoothest animation I've seen!

Yeah I noticed that but according to Brett Tosti, the force powers will be better as Kyle progresses through the game, so these must be part of the earlier levels/missions, I think by the end of the game the rate will be much slower.

I noticed that, too, MI{ - the Force mana seems to recharge at about half the speed it's used up at... or was that just my eyes??

... or is the sound sort of flakey and low quality?

The trailer is a bit grainy as well (in QT 5), but very nice.

The enemies pretty much seemed like fodder, but the animation did look very smooth. I like the initial shot of Kyle blocking a shot like it was nothing as he activated his saber. Classic JK1 moment there. ; )

At first I thought I saw somebody get cut in half, but on closer inspection I was wrong.. the guy just tucked into a ball when he was hit with the saber blade, and then flew backward.

Shooting an AT-ST with a bryar pistol? Puh-leez...

'Exciting' is hardly the word I would use!

hey Kurgan
Are you still interested in the game?;)
When will force long posting return? :D

I also thaught he cut that guy in half. First I thaught It was a decapitation, but It wasnt :(

I wonder if you can cut the legs of those AT-ST's with your saber?

I liked the Disruptor/Disitigration, and the Matrix style 'walling-running'. I think maybe you're being a little harsh Kurgan, it was cool.

I wonder if the amount of mana used will be different in SP and MP
Elite force apparently had pretty different settings for both games, even different executables, so maybe the way the powers and weapons work will be pretty different in MP

i certainly hope force jump doesn't take a quarter of your energy..

well i took a look at it again and the ammount loss(wasn't quite a quarter.. maybe a fifth or sixth of it. it was also replenished as quickly as it was spent. :)

Actually, that's a spark from the saber hitting the wall behind Kyle. If you look closely, you'll see that the saber hits the wall, makes a spark, and leaves a diagonal streak on the wall

Yeah, and if you look closer, you can see that the bar door closes behind him as he cuts the wall.

You guys notice how far enemies move when hit by the sabre? Like halfway through when he is fighting the bot things, one of em gets blown across the room; as if he's hit by a baseball bat, or better yet a Mack truck. Still, it looks amazing; i suppose it is better than cutting people to pieces with no blood or with blood, or whatever :)

I was too amazed by the game to look at the force bars :)

Well I watched the thing 8 times.:D
oh and I think it was earlier in the game because when he does the "wall-run" it takes, like, less than a tenth

It was definately cool, I wasn't talking about the content, I was talking about the video/audio itself. I found myself wishing it was of better quality. Don't mind me... I must be spoiled by the great quality videos for other recent games. They're teasing us! Nothing but grainy footage, it's like the Loch Ness Monster sightings! Okay, maybe not, hehe.

Not to worry, once my mana recharges, you'll be seeing Force Long Posts before long, I'm sure of it. ; )

I think I like Kurgan's mana just the way it is now. :p

Let's not forget that Raven has said that there is still a lot of stuff not yet set in stone for the final version of the game to be released. True the person playing didn't appear to have very good accuracy, the mana did get zapped up pretty quick, but the picture could have been accelerated, maybe. And it was probably set on Easy if we have that choice, 'cause the stormies couldn't shoot any better than the guy playing! :D

Hey Redwing, I like one of the colors in your sig, the bright green, but the flashing is quite obnoxious don't ya think? Better change it before wardz checks it out.

And if your going to go flashing that thing around please don't advertise that your from RS.Net

People might think differently of me when I tell them I hang out there.:rolleyes:
