Thumbs up Dark Forces 3?

Why is the game called "Jedi Knight 2" and not "Dark Forces 3"?


p.s. I didn't type this.

because its a continuation of jediknight, not the original dark forces.

jedi knight followed kyles transition from being a merc into being a jedi knight. by the time we get to outcast, there is not much connection with the old df plot. kyle is a jedi, and so, as it is a continuation of jediknight, and not kyle's passing into jedihood, its should rightfully be jediknight 2, not dark forces 3.


it may not seem right to you, as with many others, but LEC obviously thought it through for a while.

if you're losing sleep over a game name debate, you need a break from computers

take up something non jedi related, like footy

They could leave the title blank, the package blank and send it to me a burned copy...this game will have one title and one meaning....sweeeeaaaaaaaattttt!\

Or, the could call it " Enter the Wookie"...lol....yes, I'am lame

I wonder how big the demo will be?? Could be as small as 90Mb, but thats unlikely with a fps demo. I reckon around the 200Mb area . I'll definatly have to download that with my T3 computer. Might take a while with my 56K modem

Thats highly doubtful RAVE, LEC are highly protective of there software (and info) and someone's would have hell to pay if it were leaked. Of course that didnt stop Tie fighter from showing up on warez sites two weeks before it was released way back in '94.


Genius is limited, unfortunately stupidity is not thus so.

An early demo of Obi-Wan was leaked. I never got a hold of it but I heard it sucked LOL.

Yea Raven and LEC games rarely get onto Warez sites...which probably means they wont get onto them early. They have real tight security. We can all hope though
