:eek::eek:

I just got back from my local EB and while I was there standing in line I looked up at the video monitor and there it was........I was watching my first glimpse of live action from KOTOR. :eek:
The guy working behind the counter said that they just got the video today and it was actually the first time they had shown it. :eek:

It was just amazing first of all, I couldn't believe what I was watching......you have your lightsaber drawn and as you get closer to an enemy: it first slows down, a little list popsup on the side of the screen and you choose how you want to attack the enemy - either by using the force, your saber, or your blaster. The slow mo wasn't as slow as I thought it would be...it moves right along nicely. The sceen that follows was incredible.....the characters do some amazing acrobatics and move so well. The fight was simply amazing. Even how they block the laser blasts is cool....they did a little slash downward towards the enemy that shot it at them and it was returned. :D

Now as far as the party members......you do a similar thing with them as you do for your attack....a list of choices pops up and they go and do what you want them to do. The most amazing thing was how seemless it all was....you are there in a hallway killing dark jedi and then all of a sudden you see a party member running further down that hallway and ignighting their DBLS and defeating a sith. Just like the movies.......:eek:


The video also included clips of one of the mini games and part of a dialect sceen. It was underwater at the world of Mannan........they had full scuba gear on....I wish I could have seen more.....

I'm still impressed. :D

ARGH! I just heard that they showed a preview of KotR at some Dutch game show that I had never heard off, so I immediatley turned in, only to just see the credits of the show.

Apparently, they're going to replay the show upcoming Tuesday around 2400 hours... I'm already prepping my recorder.

Well, once I've taped it, I think I'll be capable to getting it into an AVI file, although I personally somehow suspect that we'll be capable of seeing the footage before Tuesday...

Plus, it seems that Gammo (the dutch show in question) sometimes places several of their items (reviews, previews) on their official website... I'll be keeping an eye on their site. :)

It lasted for several minutes....like about three I think. I'm not sure how far into it I was when I caught it.....but that's ok by me. I have yet to go back to watch it.......I am going to soon though. :D


Sorry Alias, I'd send it to The Raven first. :) ;)

I'm not sure I understand your question...are you asking if EB's are games only now?

Well, they sell graphics cards etc.....and a little bit of other hardware, but I'd say they're mostly games now.

Bah... you know that rerun of the gaming show that showed a preview of KotR that I talked about earlier in this thread? The site says that they broadcast again around 2400 on Tuesday, so I tuned in yesterday... instead of a gaming show, I got some odd other show... :mad:

total coincedence,
i turned on the tv as i thought it was time for the simpsons. suddenly a new game program. and at the intro they mentioned KOTOR, so i jumped up to look for it. it was pretty nice screenies but i think they were mostly the same as the movie posted at swknights earlier. the mentioned some things about the story, the action (as u could control up to 3characters) and also something about ur transport ship. its a baby millenium falcon (he called it) and is the only thing thats close to the movies. they also revealed something about the light - dark side that both would have some same quests, different quests and an ending for each side. ;)

That's just mean, Raven.

oh, a "odd show" at 2400

There is no such thing as 2400.

There is 2359:99 then it goes to 000:00.

This is because midnight starts the next day, and it would be odd to start the day at 2400.

Since Lucas Arts is in charge I bet it's possible. We all know Bioware would rather just put nose to grindstone and finish the game but if LA comes and says put out a video then they'd have to do it.

Ok, I went back to the EB just a little bit ago and watched the video again. :p

One thing I wanted to share with you--those command lists that pop-up on your screen, well you can cycle through different ones. For example one panel will be your force powers and another would be for your saber.

Example: On the list of saber commands there were two particular attacks that stuck out in my mind....one was called fury and the other had a little longer title with fierce in it. Though I don't remember the whole thing.....I was drooling all over the floor and .........nvmd.

The moves were quite impresssive.....even after seeing it before. :)

You went there again and you still didn't steal the video? :p

Leema Tous hey whatsup.

So are the graphics that much better than jedi outcast in person? Do the lightsabers have a glow like the movies?
How are the saber movment's? Are they solid or to fast?
How much control do you have over the saber blocking attacks, certain swings with saber?
Or do you just pick certain types of setting attacks rage, etc?

How do you engage in battle do you just run into an enemy then the screen comes up

01-24-2003, 12:38 PM

Hey, im new here so hi to everyone. I saw a video of gameplay for KOTOR today! There is a link at the bioware site and it has an interview with someone at Bioware (I cannot remember who) but through out the interview it shows videos of gameplay and fighting!! It looks great, I have no idea if everyone has seen this video or not so it might be old news but if not goto the Bioware site where it has a link. The link is...Telstra.com go to that site and scroll down until you see the box for the video, I hope this is good news for everyone!!:D

Is there any chance that some kind-hearted person with a website and technical know-how *cough*ComRaven*cough*. Could record and put up the broadband video as a downloadable file rather than the streaming video so that those of us poor devils with dial-up can watch the video in something other than as a 10 pixel eyesore?

Hint-hint ;)

01-25-2003, 06:58 AM
Mmmmmm, you COULD record the whole thing to video, and afterwards record it back into an AVI file...

I don't believe that my current card can record anything back from video, but I can at the very least tape it to video for personal use :D

To let you guys know, by the time I get anything put together.......I have a feeling that there will be some kind of new video out. Who knows, maybe even another trailer [That was a guess] :)

Like that interview/preview we saw.....I think that the AI was turned off in the video I saw.

Not at the moment......they are being quite selective it seems as to what they are releasing.

Katarn07-I don't have the link to the video with the interview....I think Hannibal or somebody might have it. Send him a pm or maybe wait for his reply. :)


Agreed Com, EB might frown on that, especially when the whole video has an EB graphic in the bottom corner of the screen. :D

wat's the title of that song in the trailer

Uber_Saber
01-30-2003, 07:11 PM
It's several songs cut together. (In some cases, somewhat poorly)

I'm an SW music fan, so I am pretty sure when I tell you this:

The opening, with the simple woodwind and the shot of the Ebon Hawk, is from Luke setting fire to Anakin's funeral pyre.

The surge in the strings at the point of "Long Before the Galactic Empire" is from that too.

Then, at about the point the one guy's movinga bout the spaceport, that's the 'love' theme ESB.

Then, the fanfare at the end is from the end credits of ESB.

Just in case you all didn't know, the video in question is on the new CD in the March issue of the Officail Xbox magazine. I just got it in the mail and watched it last night and before I went to work today. Amazing! I can't wait to immerse myself in the KOTOR realm. But until then I'll have to bide my time and placate myself with Jedi Outcast, Metroid Prime and SW Bounty Hunter! :)

He'd have to record it off his XBox. Those darned demo disks don't play in DVDs.

02-04-2003, 05:12 PM
Bah, humbug :mad:

All right, I just might go against my principles and buy *gasp* the X-Box Magazine if the movie really shows something new and extremely cool stuff. Can someone tell me what the contents are, and how much one magazine would cost?

SunBurN
02-04-2003, 08:06 PM
The xbox magazine only has a single page dedicated to KOTOR but the DVD Demo disc has the actual video, and I'm pretty sure you have to have an Xbox to view it.
