Hey, to all you SW gamers. If you're at all like me, you were beyond dissapointed when LEC announced that Obi-Wan was canceled for PC and will only be on console somtime in the future.

I don't know what good it will do, but you can petition for them to bring it back to PC at petitiononline.com/ob1pc

So, who all is in favor of Obi-Wan on PC?

There already is a petition for it but it wont do any good. I see your new to the boards. Welcome aboard!! http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif Feel free to post anywere ya want.

I calculated the odds that this would work versus the odds that I was doing something incredibly stupid...and I went ahead anyway.

Actually it may yet do some good, but that's not saying that an online petition will really bring the game back to the PC.. it just makes LEC aware of the demand for such a product and the negative feelings about their decision (some more extreme than others of course).

So some 7,000+ gamers agreed with the above sentiment.

In the words of the late Obiwan.. "Let go!"

I have a feeling Obiwan was going to be less spectacular than anticipated so LEC moved it to console only.

Just wait for DF3. That should good. Or download Garindans MOTS levels he is creating. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif

I want Obi-Wan back too, but if that is impossible(I hope not) Jedipowerbattles should be released to the PC!

LALALALALALALALALALA Thank you Darth Lando.

IT's CRAP!!!!! THEY SAVED YOU 50 BUCKS BY NOT HAVING TO BUY CRAP!!!!!

Say thank you LEC for not releasing another game that would take my hard earned money and disappoing me.

We have crosses available still. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif

I signed it, but the thing probably won't run on our current PC anyway. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif And now that I think about it, I think that I'm going to regret it someday.(signing the petition that is, because it'll probably be just an "avarage" game)

No!

Oh great, another newbie bringing up Obi-Wan... http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif

Well paul, ol' buddy ol' pal I agree with you on this one. I think LEC did do us a favour, even though OB1 looked like it rocked! But a game can change alot in the process of it's creation...

Anyways, I'm confident LEC has a few good games to offer us...

I guess i'm not as mad at them for canceling it as I am that they make crappy *** games.

Yeah well that's all a matter of opinion. I enjoy most of the Star Wars games. Heck I play Yoda Stories once in a while http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif

I actually like yoda stories alot. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/frown.gif And in my opinion, it's one of the best gameboy games ever.

I think the next person to say that LEC betrayed them by saving us from Obi-wan is going up on a cross.

It would be nice if everyone saved their opinions until Obi-Wan is actually released onto console and have heard from people who played it. WE KNOW NOTHING YET FOR SURE.

Yes, but we can assume alot. And another reason besides it going to console is that it takes away the editablity factor. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/frown.gif Now don't get me wrong. JK is still fun to edit but it's REALLY REALLY showing its age.

Well everyone is entitled to an opinion... And maybe JK is showing it's age... But the "betrayal" is even older...

Paul, let's get the cross http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif

LEC's decision was also too hard to me first, but after signing that "bring Obi-Wan back to the PC" petition three times in a row and making my own petition (www.petitiononline.com/JPBpc/petition.html), I explained to myself that maybe LEC though Obi-Wan would have been too much like the original Jedi Knight and MotS were and that it wouldn't have bring anything new to it's genre; for example that glyph system that people were so excited, didn't even work so well that developers first realized it.(Then it's actually logical from LEC's point of wiev to move it to some console where they don't even have JK/MotS.) Well, quite recently LEC promised to announce something big(and I'm sure it wasn't Battle for Naboo) coming to PC soon, and then there was this survey, where they asked about "Obi-Wan 3D shooter"... Hmmm... Am I just hallucinating or are they reconsidering they earlier decision?

Oops, there goes one! (Jedi SuperBuen).

Btw, Paulb, were you an extra in Unreal? Just wondering.

Redwing

Really. Come on, get OVER this. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. We don't "hang" people at RS.net for expressing their personal opinions.

And by the way, I too was looking forward to Obi-Wan. As a rule, PC games are ALWAYS superior to their console counterparts, because of patches, hacks, utilities, editors, trainers, upgrades...the list goes on.

And no one, not even you Paul, has any clue how Obi-Wan would really have been like. If it really does suck when released, then you can scold people.

Uhhh...oops.
After reading all the annoying whining in older posts, I'm beginning to understand your attitudes. But I still think you should lighten up.

Hey Redwing, if you love rs.net so much, why don't you marry it? :b http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/tongue.gif Yes, I know that was lame........ Oh, and welcome to the Boards, Legion! http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif

I think Legion has a point...we need a good hacking/sneaky weasel to do it too...I know two of them, Rhett, Garnidian???

as for not flaming other members, well I'm just doing what happens when people construct bad arguements, they get flamed.
