But then you take into account that GoW came out 3 YEARS beofre TFU

Tfu has better textures but crap ass effects, while GoW has worse textures and better effects... wait isn't the main point of Tfu the force powers which are all EFFECTS? o_o

Hate the backwards lightsaber, and hate having two of them even more.

Gimic, gimic, gimic.

And that's all I have to say about that.

that style was quiet cool in the first game, and it looks good. but it looks a bit weird with 2 sabers...

Fair point. However, I don't recall God of War ever having a God-awful bright haze over the screen all the time and having characters in cutscenes move and talk like the game was made in 2001.

I must agree about the cutscenes. They do come out rather stiff.

Hence the reason I got rid of my PS2 long ago more specifically when Halo came out and I haven't gone back to Sony since, but that I think is another thread.

@topic: someone stated that the backhand grip with two lightsabers looked odd(I was too lazy to quote it) and I would tend to agree. I know I said that I didn't have a problem with it and I don't but with the two lightsaber thing maybe they should have done away with it...or at least given players the option to only have one lightsaber which from what I understand they do not

I would prefer if he would hold one of the sabers the normal way. Kind of like Exar Kun did.

It looks like tfu'll be pushed beyond the oct 28th release date... None of us seem to agree with that god awful stance... I hate the people who asked for a maris brood game... Looks like they might've taken the inspiration from there.

Yeah I know I'm bumping of topic again but I would like to get this straight. You got rid of a gaming console with over 5000 games released for it, huge customer list and lot's of good fun because the animations in your cutscenes weren't as nice as the new gen platforms?

deesnyder why do you think it will be pushed back?

oh no... i have no idea if it'll be pushed back... Just assuming here, since there seems to be lot of disagreement with the present stance... It might turn out to be like splinter cell conviction...

No...I got rid of it for another gaming console that I believed was a superior product with better graphics and more games that I was interested in playing. Truth be told I was bored with my PS2 and used it as trade fodder for my first Xbox, and then when the 360 came out I did the same thing with the original Xbox...but we are waaay off topic here, and I'd be willing to discuss further in a PM if you wish.

Haven't seen anything indicating there's any sort of delay in the October 26th release date...and as I said...it would be nice if they would give the player an option for different fighting styles and such, but this late in their development process they could not make a major change to the game like that without a delay nor would I expect them to.

I think switching stances or a switch to turn the saber on or off was probably the last things on their minds. Why obsess over something so pointless?

It's not that pointless.
If switching stances also changed the way you swing the saber, it would add a lot of gameplay depth.

I was merely playing devil's advocate with my comment about giving folks a choice between the saber style. I don't have a problem with the backhand style as I've stated previously and in the end imho it doesn't make a difference in the game to me. A lightsaber kills stormtroopers no matter which way you swing it

i don't see why, other than for the sake of being 'unique', they chose for starkiller to hold the saber backwards. in fact, him holding the saber backwards holds back on the star wars experience on my part, i simply can't relate to it as i could had he held it correctly. it feels as if TFU didn't have permission to hold the saber correctly, and they made some sloppy japanese copy version with him holding it backwards. looks cheap.

I'm sure they could have done it anyway they chose...the grip is actually a variation of the Shien lightsaber form. (I know..I just nerded the discussion up about ten points..sorry I do that from time to time.)

Come think of it, starkiller is the second apprentice in the star wars universe trained by anakin to also use the unorthodox backwards grip. And it reallh is kinda pointless to fret over something like the way he holds it just because it, might add at the most only the slightest bit more in gameplay

I always think that Starkiller is trained to use the backwards style by Vader, in memory of his last apprentice. Though his last apprentice comes with the backwards style even before he met her...

Pure speculation...but I would think it is more something she and Starkiller chose as opposed to something they were trained to do. I watched a little bit of the Clone Wars before I deemed it garbage (personal opinion please don't shoot me if you like it.) and if I recall Anakin tries to break her of the habit doesn't he?

That is a possibilty that they chose an unorthodox style to appeal to their youthful or unique personalities. As far as the clone wars series goes, it isn't bad in my opinion. The second season is a big step up from the first season.

Why is it pointless. Seemed to be a good thing in the JK games.

Honestly, I'm sure the item of how their main character holds his lightsaber was the last thing on their minds when they were developing the game. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it probably never even crossed their minds. Like I said...a lightsaber still sends ones enemies to the hurt locker no matter which way you look at it.
