Jedi Knight 2. Your thoughts?
 
The first thing I thought when I saw the news was, {Chris Farley voice} OH MY FREAKING GOOOWWWWSSHH!!!!!{Chris Farly voice}

But do you think it'll really pan out? I sure hope so. And if it does, do you think it'll be editable? If it isn't, I don't think many would stick with Jedi Knight 1 and that Jedi Knight 2 would die pretty fast. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/frown.gif

if it's editable, then good. if it's not, well, who cares. The Phantom Menace isn't editable (yet), and i still like it. so, if jk2 is really being made, then good. Although it would make alot of money if they allow it to be editable.

Boba Rhett 02-20-2001 03:17 PM

It would make sooooooooo much more money and be around for soooooooooo much longer if it was editable. The Phantom menace wasn't editable and it's already dead. Besides, even if TPM was editable I wouldn't do it http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/wink.gif

Hey, all I can say is, if this is true, I hope it pans out, because this is their (whomever decides to develop it) chance to get it right (a true sequel to JK).

Hey, I hope a few things happen, namely

1) It actually comes out.

2) It's for the PC (if it gets ported to other systems later, fine, but quality shouldn't be compromised so it can be a console release)

3) Editing would be nice, but if it is going to be like the editing for Obi-Wan was going to be, that's fine. A better game that's harder to edit is better than a weaker game that's easier to edit, IMHO. I'd rather buy a good game first, not merely an "engine."

4) They get some of the talent who worked on DarkForces/JK/MotS to at least help out or oversee it, that always helps.

5) Whomever it is takes their time and makes a good, fun game, that's released sometime in the next decade.

I am pretty excited by the news, but I will keep my excitement in check until I get official word from LEC. So don't anybody start flaming LEC over it or anything, let's just see what happens... hopefully something good, fairly soon. ; )

paulbarnard 02-20-2001 04:35 PM

Call it Dark Forces 3 and it would be perfect. That's all about you left out Kurgan.

Boba Rhett 02-20-2001 05:11 PM

Ya, it sounds better being Dark Forces 3.

Jedi SuperBuen 02-21-2001 01:49 AM

I just hope if DF3 doesn't the light of day we won't have people whinning like they did for Obi-Wan. I do not want to go thru another period like that.

Editing in TPM would be kewl!

I think one of Kurgan's points is the most important one:

Let me bold this and put it in caps so LEC see it... Please pay attention makers of games at LEC:

TAKE YOUR TIME MAKING GAMES

I don't give a monkey's ass (hi pb!) if you take 5 years to make it... PLEASE MAKE IT BUG/ERROR FREE! I hate playing a game and having it screw up millions of times b/c of stupid bugs in it. That's my only complaint with TPM. I've had to start over a few levels b/c of it screwing up. So please I beg you: don't release a game unless it has been well tested.

Thank you http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif

Jedi Knight II: Dark Forces 3

Confused yet? ; )

Um, just a nitpick, but wasn't MotS billed as Jedi Knight II?

Dark Forces

Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II

Jedi Knight II: Mysteries of the Sith

So technically, this would be Jedi Knight III: Dark Forces III. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/rolleyes.gif

Maybe they're just planning to remake/retcon MotS. Which would be a good thing, story-wise.

As far as I know, no.

MotS was the "addon pack" the "Jedi Knight companion missions" but nothing beyond that...

Kurgan

paulbarnard 02-21-2001 04:49 PM

You're all wrong.

Star Wars: Dark Forces
Star Wars: Dark Forces II Jedi Knight
Star Wars: Mysteries of the Sith, Addon Campaign to Jedi Knight

So this one would have to be
Star Wars: Dark Forces III Jedi Knight II if you want to get really picky about it.


Jedi SuperBuen 02-22-2001 01:57 AM

Why would it be Jedi Knight II?

Star Wars: Dark Forces
Star Wars: Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight
Star Wars: Dark Forces II: Mysteries of the Sith mission add-ons
Star Wars: Dark Forces III: Jedi Master http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif or something... It doesn't need to be the Jedi Knight title... So basically everyone is still wrong... EXCEPT ME *EVIL LAUGH!*

Yeah, I would agree I totally crapped myself. That is some of the best news Ive heard in a LONG time!

paulbarnard 02-26-2001 02:14 PM

If Jedi Knight II is some how made into a prequel game (like that News summary hints at) I will BUY FLOWERS FOR LEC AND SING THEM A SONG, maybe even Lucas himself!!!!

Kyle and Jan weren't born yet, and if they were, they're just infants.

If JK2 is made into a prequel game, make sure you don't finish Lucas off before I get a chance to TAKE HIM OUT TO DINNER! http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/mad.gif

paulbarnard 02-26-2001 04:14 PM

I misspoke. Went to the LEC site and found nothing. Thinking that the news writers here were on smack, I re-read and saw that was an add-on level. For that I apologize.

But as said before, If Dark Forces 3 is a pre-quel game, LEC will have a line of people wanting to POLITELY DISAGREE WITH THEM.

[This message has been edited by Kurgan (edited February 26, 2001).]

Kurgan 02-26-2001 05:40 PM

Guys? Let's just calm down a bit and keep this on a postive level. I just got through saying that we shouldn't start flaming LEC over this.. it's still a rumor, dagnabbit!

Threats are unnecessary.

How long did that take you to edit all the messages where last weeks line was use?

This weeks line CUTE FUZZY TEDDY BEARS THAT GIGGLE WHEN YOU HUG THEM.

Jedi SuperBuen 03-03-2001 11:46 AM

Maybe Kurgan doesn't like violence.

Oh and by the way it's not JK2... it's DF3!

EXACTLY. When will you children learn.

JK is DF2. All dark Jedi are not Sith. "You don't tug on Superman's Cape, You don't spit into the wind, You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger and you don't mess arround with Jim."--Don't mess with Jim by Jim Croche.

Why'd you do that? It's true. I had a biopsy this week to determine if this lump in my left shoulder/shoulder blade was a tumor or not. BIG LONG NEEDLES HURT WHEN YOU'RE POKED BY THEM.

BeastMaster 03-04-2001 05:29 PM

I hope DFIII (or whatever) ends up retconning MotS.

LEC should hire someone who (A) can actually write and (B) who knows JK, and have them do a story for this one.

Give Kyle some actual realistic character development, some new Force powers, keep the Light/Dark meter, and for doG's sake, BRING BACK JAN!!

Take care.

oninosensi 03-05-2001 03:24 AM

Needles of any kind I can do without...

I hope for DF3/JK2 they have sevseral dark jedi to fight. that is one thing I missed in MoTS. You fight 'yourself' then Kyle a couple of times and that is it.

More dark Jedi!!!

paulbarnard 03-07-2001 02:24 AM

Nope. My doctor's office is right across the hall from my lab. He knows where I am most of the day...

Unfortunately his clinic offics id 2 floors down, and a wing over with oncology inbetween...GRRRRRRR

Darth_Lando 03-07-2001 05:10 PM

I hope LEC break new ground with DF3 and puts all other fps to shame. It has all the potential all you need is 'creative' and fun game design and give it a great story.
