You haven't seen it, yet you know it isn't anything special? Care to explain that one?

This reminds me of my kids telling me that they don't like a certain food when I know for a fact that they've never tried it.

i was rather disappointed in the video's content, but i can't really expect it to feature any specific gameplay since it's mainly trying to give us a feel for the planet's overall feel. i am psyched about the ebon hawk landing cutscene though ... it's minor, but it's so much more dynamic than the typical landing where it disappears behind a building, well, except for on manaan.

No, don't get me wrong, I want to correct myself, I wanted to actually say that I haven't seen it before, but when I saw it then it wasn't anything spectacular since I saw the newest trailer before this, so I can't be really impressed. Sorry about the misunderstanding

Wow...so many kill joys in this thread
I was very excited by the video. The whole point of a fly-by is to show the landscape. After weeks and weeks of no information, to suddenly get a fly-by of an entire planet was amazing. I hope they do a few more.

Agrees with Achilles. Those weeks of nothing new were getting tiresome. Then to have a whole new video of never seen before goods...................

Also agrees with Adillon about the cutscene, that was my favorite part.

I forgot to comment on that; yeah I agree. For some reason that cutscene also struck me as being higher caliber than what we saw in KotOR.

Certainly not bad for fly-by. I especially like the outdoor areas, they appear to be more vast than KOTOR's outdoor regions.

I agree with FiEND, agreeing with Achillies, dry spells during a games development aren't fun!

Exactly!

From my take on things, in the Star Wars galaxy, technology is not advancing very fast, if at all, so some of the the vehicles may look different on the outside but they are pretty much the same on the inside. That's why the Death Star and the Imperial Star Destroyers were so feared, they were a new technology, just like the Star Forge and the Sith Ships were in KOTOR.

Keep in mind, the great advancements in technology we see today are by no means the norm throughout history. For the most part, advancement was on a pace much closer to SW. Things like swords and the horse and cart had been used unchanged for thousands of years. Even when you have something like a car. Sure, they are a lot better day, but the basic design and how it works is more or less unchanged from its first introduction. It is the same thing with technology form KOTOR compared to tech from SW.

And technology did progress. Droids are more advanced, robotic arms definitely where more advanced. ( EPII's vs ESB ) and the starships did become more advanced for sure. For example, compare 'modern' Star Wars ships with KOTOR's. They had a limited number of turbo lasers on them. Maybe two on the front, and a few smaller lasers along the hull.

But Bulk Cursers and other Old Republic vessels had many lasers along there hulls. Dreadnaughts where very effective ships in there day.
