View Full Version : Of the 3 SW titles coming out this year, which are you looking to foward most?

03-31-2003, 08:54 PM
I remember the above poll without JK3 as an option. Must you ask which one I am looking foward to getting most? Actually, yeah, because it is not JK3.

Personally, I loved playing Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, and a Star Wars version in full 3D is just the coolest thing I have ever heard of. Sure, you aren't using your "skills" to kill groups of Sith Troopers, packs of rabid katarns, or Darth Malak himself, but RPG combat is quite difficult mind you and IMO much more of a challenge. Also, you must be mindful of your actions other than killing pedestrians (JK1 and JK3) to stop from your fall to the Darkside. And managing a budget and knowing what to get is sorta hard your first time playing the game, and you must be mindful of your expenses. Also, there is a romance for either gender you choose to be you may want to take part of. KotOR will rock!

Don't get me wrong, JK3 looks alot more promising than the screens of JO, and it has a lot more non-linear elements. However, for that, it has no solid story and I read you run missions. Sure, you have story driven ones after a while, but the fact everyone will have a different character makes the EU incomplete. I have already seen it fit, however, that reference material will say his students ran those missions on their own (you know he has no Padawan, right? Heck, no one has seen it fit to let him be a Jedi Master or much of a role in NJO!)

The cool thing about KotOR, I intend my character to an ancestor of Kyle. Matt Katarn? Yeah, that sounds good. After defeating Malak, Bastila Shan and Matt Katarn marry and have decendents that will eventually comes down to Morgan and then Kyle.

After playing both, my opinion may change and I may claim JK3 is the best in the DF/ JK series, and that would top my all time favorite game, Dark Forces.

is kotor going to have xbox live feature?

03-31-2003, 08:59 PM
JK3 for me. No contest whatsoever :)

03-31-2003, 09:23 PM
until a couple of days ago i would have said KOTOR and although i'm still psyched about that, JK III is now my most wanted game

03-31-2003, 09:25 PM
I don't know enough about the games. Can you give me basic details on the games.

and sites to visit. Then I'll make my vote. Right now, I'm leaning towards JK3. after playing JK2 at my friends house and totally creaming little kids(I assume they were little kids cuz the sucked) I'm really looking JK3. basicly JK2 with better graphics and some other nifty trinkets to my knowledge.

so fill me in

03-31-2003, 09:35 PM
JKI^3 definitely. I'm not an RPG man. ;) :D

All 3 for me!!! :D

Galaxies: I have always wanted to go on my own saga and make a name for myself in a real Star Wars universe. This gives me that ability. (Monthly cost is a bummer though.)

KOTOR: This game just looks amazing. Finally, a link to the past of the Jedi.

JKIII: Should I even bother explaining considering the new features that are supposed to be in it? :D

03-31-2003, 09:48 PM
Kotor, of course. It's like the great NWN with SW stuff. Its just the best mix you can have.

I'll probably get JK3 too, since JK2 kicked ass

1. KoTOR
3. SWG

03-31-2003, 10:24 PM
KOTOR just something new.

dark jedi 8
03-31-2003, 10:40 PM
KOTOR will rule all!!!! no need to ask where my vote will go!
though JKIII will be awesome.
but the monthly fee for galaxies kinda sucks.


03-31-2003, 10:43 PM
Galaxies, but I'm still gonna get JK3

I'm the only Galaxies person here...... (crawls in a corner)

dark jedi 8
03-31-2003, 10:58 PM
yeah! and stay there too!.:D j/k

04-01-2003, 02:14 AM
Until JKIII became official, it was Knights Of The Old Republic without question. Now I'm looking forward to JKIII maybe just a bit more. I've never seriously contemplated Star Wars Galaxies...I just collected all da pwetty scween shots. :D

So JKIII, closely followed by Knights. :thumbsup:

04-01-2003, 02:57 AM
KotOR will be sweet. A FULL SW RPG is what I have been waiting for. I may be naff at them, but the opportunity to go round the galaxy with a lightsaber, wookie and droid is something I have been DIEING to do.

Then JKIII was official announced.... But that doesn't change things.

Whilst I am sure it will be an AWESOME game, my PC won't be able to play the first two, let alone JKIII, and JKII worked best on a PC (tried the console version. Was good try, but mouse and keyboard combo is the winner :) ). May be in the future, when I can afforf to build me a new computer, will get it 2nd hand.

Galaxies - I can understand the need for a monthly fee, although with the subscription they are gonna get, perhaps £5.99 is a tad steep (try effing vertical!). May be when I have money, if I havent grown up by then....

04-01-2003, 05:21 AM
Well it was KOTOR, but now after reading about JKIII, I have to say I'm looking forward to that more, simply because I'm more of and FPS fan. I'm still very much looking forward to KOTOR though, both games are gonna be sweet.

04-01-2003, 05:29 AM
*Points to sig*

JKII, then, SWG, then, KOTOR. ;)

04-01-2003, 06:45 AM
Still at the moment it's KotOR, since it will be the first of the lot I will get. I am not sure about Galaxies, since I am not sure if I am the kind of person who will spend enough time playing it to get the full benefit from it.

JK3, well, I will never miss a JK game, nor will I ever miss an iteration of the X-Wing/TIE Fighter series (Please bring on Ep 3 so we can get the classic games developed again - or even better some games to fill in the gap between EP 3 and ANH).....

04-01-2003, 07:06 AM
I have a feeling some fans are going to get SWG, then get fed up since they can't all be Darth Mauls, and give the game back. :p

I'm looking forward to play KOTOR on PC!! :D

04-01-2003, 08:03 AM
KOTOR for me :)

04-01-2003, 08:06 AM
well ive always wanted to play as a zabrak (not maul) or perhaps a wookie or just my own human jedi.. so i voted jk3

04-01-2003, 09:21 AM
if you would have asked me this i would have said kotor, without a doubt. but now as i know of jk3 and saw wome nice screenies im in doubt. i also love the fps genre above the rpg so i think it´ll be jk3 from now on but very, very closely followed by kotor. the thing that had drawn me over the line is the multiplayer support in the jedi knight series, which kotor doesnt have.

and although i think all three games will rock, im not gonne spend my money on galaxies. it sees very promising but i hate it when i have to pay a monthly fee just to be able to play the game nicely.

I am probally going to JKIII because my brother is going to get KOTOR.... but I think I am most looking forward to KOTOR.

Well, seeing as my PC is best described as a wind-up telephone connected to a monitor so small you could fit it into your jacket's inside pocket and NOT look like you've had a square breast enlargement, my only gaming option would have to be my PlayStation2. Since the only game billed for a PS2 release in the poll is Star Wars - Galaxies, then I will have to answer...

Star Wars - Galaxies.

Although I'm having enough trouble getting all the secondary bounties on Star Wars - Bounty Hunter, especially on those missions where there are over 10 of them. At this rate, I won't need another game for at least the rest of the year. Plus finding all the 007 Icons on 007 - NightFire is a nightmare... somebody please help me.

Jedi Knight III comes first. I really am looking forward for this....

04-02-2003, 12:41 AM

I love the storyline to the game, long ago in the history of the SW universe.

:D :D

JkIII - I have plenty of fps' to play, so that's why this one is second.

Galaxies [the only reason it's number three is that monthly fee]

There's talk about a JO expansion as well. (!!!!!) It's going to be released this summer.

(For more info check out the thread that Nutritous made in The Valley.)

04-02-2003, 10:37 AM
Hmmmmm, you get to play as Kyle, huh?! Awesome. But I am not made of money...

Hmmm, things to get this year for my computer

Indy and the Emperor's Tomb - Easter
GeForce 4 - uhhhh, not sure, Birthday?
JK2- Expansion - I'll use the money from mowing the lawns over the summer
KotOR - My own money from a job
JK3 - My own money from a job

Crap, that ain't gonna work. Suggestions? If all else, wait a year for Indy...

*** Turns out that link for the expansion was bogus. So no JK2 expansion is on its way...

04-02-2003, 12:12 PM
alright! 4 votes for SWG. I think people don't like it because of the monthly fee. well, how else are they gonna pay or the servers, paycheck for the live dev team, and whateve else that gos behind closed doors?

Ditto to that. I have been looking forward to KOTOR for a long long time. I have always wanted to have a full SW RPG.

Like Leemu said, I have plenty of FPS to play, although I still probably will get JK3 if they make the saber combat as good as they are making it sounds.

So KOTOR is #1 in my book:)

04-02-2003, 03:18 PM

04-02-2003, 03:31 PM
JK3, all the way, dude!. and the next? ummm.....KotOR

04-02-2003, 05:59 PM
All three games sound and look amazing. But I still can't make up my mind.

The game I know the least about is Galaxies.
And with the monthly cost, I will probably NEVER own it, and not likely even play it.

A starwars RPG sounds good, especially since its a morrowind style rather than crappy FF style. Thank heavens it's not one of those turn based crappers.

But witch one will have the better fighting?
which will have the better graphics?

I doubt JK3 will have a very good story, but I don't care, it's all about gameplay, a good story is just a bonus. I mean it's a game not a movie. You want a good story buy MOMENTO.

I assume JK3 will have better fighting, cuz that's wear all thier attention will be put to. And gameplay. It won't have the depth of the other games, but it'll be funner. And on that Assumption I would prefer JK3.

But I don't know alot so mabee a brief sumarry on all three, and thier pros and cons? That would help.

EDIT: um, KOTOR fighting is like pointing and clicking....choose an enemy, then choose what to do (attack, dfened, etc.). If you mean the ep1: TPM game for PC....those sabers stank compared to JO.

Is this what KOTOR is gonaa be like?!? Point and click?!? So like dungeon seige?!?

If that's the case, I'll get board of it in three hours! Right now, I'm really leaning towards JKIII.

04-02-2003, 07:11 PM
3) Galaxies (i ain't paying monthly charges to play a game an hour or so daily).

04-02-2003, 07:33 PM
Bah. Gaxies... MONEY! Me have no moeny. KOTOR is just for X-Box I think.... So, JKIII. ;)

Hm... thats a touchy then. I still say Jedi knight III though. (Why is everyone sick of Kyle? Hes my favorite SW Cahrector. It wouldn't be JKIII without him... :()

04-02-2003, 10:49 PM
Okay, I vote JKIII.

I LOVE FPS'. And the fighting and action, one on one duels. Face off your opponents, prove your the ultimate jedi master. Or in my case that there is no such thing.:p

But point and fricken click I cannot stand. I hate just telling the character what to do, fighting hoards of mosters, over and over and over... bores me just thinking about it.

okay, I've finally come to a disition, JKIII.

You aren't going to play Kyle in JKIII!

Look here, if you don't believe me! (http://www.ravengames.com/jediknight3/story-world.php)

04-03-2003, 12:09 PM
JkIII, I can't wait to fight everyone again.

04-03-2003, 03:35 PM
JK III all the way. I'll have to get a better system before it comes out though.
