Gotta post this on JK2-World (http://jk2-world.when-its-done.de/news.php) - maybe some of my visitors will swim to the U.K. just to buy the magazine :D :D :P

Well, I think I know how this particular JO review will turn out, it sure doesn't look like PC Gamer UK cares too much about its journalistic integrity.

There's probably a pre-order coupon included in the boxes.

nOooOOoo!!! Why do you Brits get all the luck :(

Me wants... so badly...

Would anyone be interested in sending the 94MB File? anyone? :D

*devises schemes to purchase UK PC Gamer*

Muwahhahah.......

*sigh, there is no hope* :(

All of you in the UK are obliged to make this file available to us colonists asap after you get your copies!!! :D

It escapes me why people in the U.K would get more, when the game is AMERICAN! Come on LA and Raven, that's bogus.

I could care less about the UK getting it first since we virtually get everything else in pop culture first, but maybe someone can post the 94 MB video file (.avi/.asf/.mov/.mpeg) or even send it via a filesharer so we all can reap the benefits??

:)


I would be happy to create a hub on Direct Connect and share with forum members only if I get it.

So, they will have a review in a few days huh? How do they figure? The game is still in Beta. Unless of course this means the game is done, and will be out sooner than we thought.:)

Beta review :confused:

Also, i live in holland, i HOPE the UK version comes on sale at the same moment as in the UK :)

But just a second, does the RED saber edition with the DVD have EVERYTHING the blue one has too, and more?

So i know which one to get.

Also the playable demo thing is prolly concerning regular content and not JK2 eh ? :)

If i cn get it then iMIGHT be able to get a mirror of that movie up somewhere...


Is that, legal? I will MAKE it legal :)

no if its allowed i might UL it if i can get it by then... otherwise :confused:


Post 2:

BTW i wouldnt be surprise if they released the movie on the site one day later or something


Or maybe the members get it too? on friday a 6 pm?

just sprouting ideas here


post 3:

Also, they say its 94 mb, and twice as long as the current movie

If it were the same quality, it'd be 3.3 x 2 = 6.6 megs...

So that means theres about 85 + megs to spare for better quality movie

Sounds SWEET to me, man i hope it comes here same day, probably not though :(

Matt, the editor of PC Gamer UK, told me the review will be available online after the issue's gone off sale, so that could mean we (non eu'ers) have to wait a while to see the video too.

Hopefully I'll get a copy of the mag before then and I'll be able to let you know what's in the review (Matt got to play the game here in San Rafael, the lucky bastard!) and movie.

Roger

Ps. Tomcat, please edit your posts instead of posting new ones, thank you.

What are the legalities of posting the scans from the magazine?

Roger
02-11-2002, 12:21 PM
That is illegal!

I will contact Matt as soon as I have the copy and I'll ask him what I can mention and what not. I'll probably post a summary of contents or something like that.

TUS_Tomcat
02-11-2002, 12:25 PM
sorry sorry :)

I edited it and put all three in one now...

I have one more calculation though, it said double the lenght, well, lets say its not exactly 2:22 but 3 minutes long, 94 megs, that means 31.33 megs per minute, tell me video specialists, is that enough for full screen?

sounds like that to me :cool:

PCG UK usually gives unfair reviews of a game. they're abit biased but i'll get it for the jk2 stuff. also u can download jk2 screens of kazaa

I was just wondering if the American PC Gamer will have the same thing. I e-mailed PC Gamer about it. I find it odd, that they had a preview of JK2 in November, now they are not going to follow up on it?

Doesn't PC Gamer US have a policy against reviewing beta copies?
AFAIK that is the reason they used to give for posting 'late' reviews.

I have the 'preview' issue of PC gamer US, it has some nice pics that aren't on the official website, but it doesn't really contain anything we don't already know (now.) Hopefully this new preview will shed some light on how the multi-player is shaping up and any bugs/etc.

SlowbieOne

In case any of you are wondering, I received a swift reply to my e-mail, and unfortunately it will be UK only. He also said it was a Beta review, not a gold.

All the luck? What about all the times they don't get games until a few weeks after it's released in the US? The same could be possible for JKII.... :)

I will go as far to agree that they are very lucky. (This time.) But are not always so lucky.

Is there any possibility of me getting a hold of one?

I'll probably get it on saturday :D........this just gives further evidence that we'll get the game first........and a review already!!......The game may be closer than we think :D

Sorry CaptainRave, but there's no real evidence there.:( In fact, both Lucasarts and Raven are in U.S.A., so if it's going to be released anywhere first, it'll be America I reckon.:)

All the release dates show our times before yours :D

How do you get all this stuff early Anakin?

SlowbieOne
02-11-2002, 03:25 PM
All the release dates we have right now are all over the place, March 16th, March 25th, April 2nd, etc...

And the JK2 trailer specifically said March, so we know it's March.

Other than that, those dates mean nothing.

PC Gamer actually get quite a few world exclusives; they were on of the first PC games magaiznes so have good contacts. Still, we normally get things later than the US.

PC Gamer is a good mag so long as you bear in mind all its weak points- mostly over-enthusiasitc reviews which, to their credit, they often calm down about later and say that it hasn't lasted as well as they liked. Though they DO have this weird habit of saying "Max Payne wasn't too short, it was too expensive." Hmm. But there are far worse mags out there and they do for me.

As for release dates... in my experience, ALL Lucasarts games have come out disgustingly late in the UK. I went mad waiting for X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter.

Hi all from the UK. Ok it Rains most of the time and we have lots of flood warnings at the moment. We suck bad at most sports.

BUT we get the PC gamer review first. And a (hopefully) new and improved video. Yeah. Whooop!!!

Sorry just had to get that off my chest. I really hope someone UL it for you guys. I will be buying it as soon as i see it on the shelves.

Only three days to wait. And counting.......

Wacky_Baccy,


why would you get both?

If i understood correctly the Red one has EVERYTHING the blue one has, and a little extra (although I dont know if this extra is Jedi KNight 2 material or regular stuff)

I see no reason to get both?!

Besides you being a nutty of course :D
