You dork, I was just about to post this. :P

To be honest, I'm more excited about having two sabers! ^_^

I'm not sure about the two-saber thing. It might be NPC only.:(

Well, that Jedi had a double bladed saber, and that's slightly unorthodox for Jedi. Perhaps we may have two sabers after all. :)

I suppose this screen alone earned them more fans than all previous...

I was more interested in the screen in the open with the spaceship behind it. The lighting in the sky looked interesting... or they had the contrast up too high when taking the screen cap.

I am downright amazed with what I've seen... and now that it seems to be confirmed that there are going to be double-bladed saber combat and two-saber battles, I'm more excited than ever. I sincerely hope that we really get to choose which combat style we want.

I'd say it'll be all a part of the character development.

of course you guys down under know it only from up-world tales :)

serious, that screen was great

I don't know, maybe there will be an evil Twi'lek NPC with two purple sabers.:D

These screenshots are INCREDIBLE! Double bladed sabers. YES! The irony is, I just pre-ordered/prepaid for this game at my local retailer, today! :D

This is just what this discussion board needed.

Well, the new shots have strengthened my committment to get this game. double-ended saber, or two sabers. It will be exciting building it. I am really anxious to get KOTOR, now.:D

Does anyone notice how the Sith Lords look like the Reborn Dark Jedi in JK2?:)

don't belive i've seen you here before so WELCOME to the Kotor boardsand about the other character, how do we know that that isn't the good guy?...besides how many ways can you make a person with a robe and a hood on their head?:D

Com Raven
09-08-2002, 06:44 AM
many ways....

but just a few which don't leave on the floor laughing :)

Thanks Ewok Hunter. I've talked to you in the SWG forum. I've been keeping a loose eye on this game ever since I heard talk about it coming out of E3 2002.

As far as the photo goes, I'm assuming he's a villain because he is using red lightsabres. For the Sith, I was hoping for some actual hooded robes, as well as for the Jedi, waving in the breeze and all. It's not like the XBOX or PC couldn't handle it.:D

Darth Simpson

Those are some sweet looking screenshots.

I think the only reason they released those was to shut up all the questions like 'Will I be able to use a Darth Maul saber?!?!?!!'. ;-)

Com Raven
09-08-2002, 02:07 PM
seeing all the threads about that, you could very well be right :)

Ki-Adi-Mundi

Hey Darth! Good to see you again!

I didn't get a 'Welcome!' when I first posted here... :(

KOTOR DEVELOPER #1 : "#%$%&*!"

KOTOR DEVELOPER #2 : "What's wrong?"

KOTOR DEV. #1 : "These players keep asking me the same @##$^% questions about the damned double ended sabers. Let's release some screenshots showing a double ended saber in the game!"

KOTOR DEV #2 : What about the saber in each hand capability? That one has been popping up more and more."

KOTOR DEV #1 : "@$#$&$%!!! Forgot about that. OK, release screeshots showing both. That way these guys can stop asking the same ##$#@%% questions about that #@$#%% double ended saber. If I see another #$&!@$ post about those double ended sabers, I'm going to #@%@& kill someone!"

:D

Darth Simpson

That's exactly how it must have happened. :D


And hiya Ki-Adi!

@exar: are you implying that they faked them
@ki:did you come here before me, because i haven't seen raven ever great anyone
@Simson:you look familiar, have you been here before? if not i'll give you a welcome

Com Raven
09-09-2002, 04:07 AM
of course I greet people!

so, a warm welcome back to everyone :)

Dual wielding sabers... I still can't get over it!

No, I think the screenshots are legitimate. I cannot see Bioware doing something as idiotic as getting our hopes up and then not following through.:D

Com Raven
09-09-2002, 11:18 AM
yeah, that would be pretty stupid...

Havoc Stryphe
09-09-2002, 12:21 PM
Myself, I was more excited with the similar screenshot taken from a different angle, again showing the dual saber/double-bladed saber duel, but also a third NPC with dual Blaster pistols!

Now that adds even more depth to the game. I know it was going to happy with Bounty Hunter, but I'm glad it found it's way into this RPG title. The more possibilities and depth will make for a much more immersive gamplay and add greatly to the replayability of the title. And let me tell you, I'm planning on replaying this game to my CD or CD-ROM wears out! :D

Com Raven
09-09-2002, 02:20 PM
yeah, I am also more into the blaster thingie...

Darth Simpson
09-09-2002, 03:24 PM
Ewok Hunter : Yeah, I've been here before. I've been visiting the LF.com forums for years, dating back to the old Obi-WanKenobi.Net forums. Lately I haven't been around though, kinda lost interest after most of the 'old' guys stopped visiting.

I plan to visit a bit more often now though, so you'll probably be seeing a lot more of me.

Com Raven
09-09-2002, 04:19 PM
we, we'd all appreciate that...

09-09-2002, 07:20 PM
FINALLY! The power to choose something different in lightsabers for a change! I was hoping for either the double bladed saber, or dual saber wielding. It looks like we got both.Yes!
:p ;) :p :D

Ewok Hunter
09-09-2002, 07:35 PM
Welcom to the Star Wars Knights boardsLiberatori have an idea: dual wielding double lightsabres!

Ki-Adi-Mundi
09-09-2002, 08:10 PM
Hrmmmm... Somehow... I just don't think that idea is going to win any merit from the Devs. But who knows... by some weird twist of fate by some guy saying, "Skooter my daisy heads," on some commercial on some LucasArts guy's television, we just might get 'em. :rolleyes:

TheMadDoofer
09-09-2002, 08:22 PM
I think they should have a forum for Bounty Hunter and Clone Wars combined, so we don't have some of their questions turning up around here and SWGalaxies.

Just my two cents.

Eets

Just my two cents. what? just because he mentioned it isn't reason to complain. now if it derailed the thread , that 's annother story

TheMadDoofer
09-09-2002, 09:04 PM
Just expression of opinion from looking at all of the forums combined, and that those pretty much the only new games without a forum. Now I realize that you should talk about it at Lucasconsoles. Thank you.

It's exactly what these boards have needed.....a good shot in the arm. :)

My anticipation for this game has quintupled!!!

I am looking forward to having two orange (hopefully) lightsabers in my hands!!! ;) :cool:

:cheers:

Com Raven

orange ?

weirdo :)

Eets

My dream? Being a Nikto or Chiss sith with two dark blue lightsabers. :cool: But I'll settle for a wookiee or human, too ;)

Com Raven
09-11-2002, 08:58 AM
am I the only gunslinger around here ?

Darth Simpson
09-11-2002, 10:21 AM
Nope. :)

I kinda go both ways though. I'd like a lightsaber, but I'd also like a big f'in gun.

Eets
09-11-2002, 12:27 PM
Well, in NWN I used ranged weapons more than melee weapons, but that's just because of Legolas' inspiration. :)

With Star Wars, lightsabers just seem much more awesome than blasters to me.

Norin Radd
09-11-2002, 01:32 PM
Just wanted to tell you Eets, that picture of the Jawa with the lightsaber is hilarious.:D

I think that you can play just about any game you want to with guns etc.....

Star Wars is the one with the lightsabers.. :D

Com.....I like the orange, just for something different anyways...;)

Com Raven
09-11-2002, 01:44 PM
I always asked myself this:

do you think a blakc saber would be possible ?

and how would the color look ?

Taos
09-11-2002, 02:01 PM
A black saber....

It is possible I think. The color is going be not very jedi like though.

The only black light I can think of is the one that is actually a little off purple makes white shirts look kinda cool....:D

:guiness:

virtualoctopus
09-11-2002, 02:36 PM
It would be interesting if the 'reborn' like sith is somehow connected to the reborn in JO.....

just a thought..

I do hope, however, that a dual bladed sabre isn't so unbalanced that a single-sabre player switches to one just 'cos it's better...

That would be a great easter egg. You enter some code then you wip @ss with 2 double bladed sabers.

I read through these posts and nobody mentioned that the sabers look 100% better than they did in those first screenshots. Remember how much people complained?
Now they look better. Not saying they're perfect but if they are released like that, I'd be happy.

Com Raven
09-13-2002, 06:38 PM
indeed, you're right...
