Something cool i noticed, was that in the top right corner in MP it shows your picture, with your kill number.....also when kyle pulls the trooper at the end, after he hits him with the sabre, there is a puff of smoke...cool little effect

I only thought it was decent. I was hoping for more lightsaber stuff with the reborn. They needed to show a scene longer. I'm still glad something new has come, but I liked the 14 mb one better. Just my opinion.

because of the framerate I think
watch it slowly and you can see some frames of it

now check 0:41 while he has the flag
look at the HUD
what is it?

Loved it!!!!!!! And we finaly have a date. It's about time. I was sick of all the scuttlebutt going around. I think that the acrobatics was the coolest part. How do you suppose they're going to have those set up? Hot keys, menus, automaticly?


You watching the hand!? (Thwack!) You should have been watching the foot.

This is going to be the best video game Jedi experience ever.

Saw some more wall moves and they look great. It doesn't appear they ended up going overboard with that at all. It seems to add a great new fluidity to Kyle's Jedi ways that I had to see more of to appreciate.

Lol @ Colonel Sanders for sniping the Jedi Melee.

It's all too sexay.

OMG!!!! so far it looks better than any other game ive ever seen, the single player is amiazing with all the stuff u can do and all the movements etc... the one thing that put me off a little was the multiplayer though, it seemed a bit Q3ish but i think it will hold up to the jedi criteria that is expected from a star wars game

I think it could be handled like it was in SBX and SPORK. Or it could be more realisticaly like the cartweel off the wall...while doing a wall walk, press Left + Jump


Im just a guy with a lightsaber and a few questions. ....Oh wait, I dont have a lightsaber. Uhhh...I dont really have any questions either. Ya know I think I'm in the wrong cantina too. Oh well, give me a shot of blue milk.

Was it me or did anyone else see the batsaber in action during the first scene? *Doh*

Oh well. Doesn't bother me much. I didn't form the ABSL after all

That backstab was super cool.

And I do remember the Raven guys saying you can turn the slow mo off.. so no worries there.

My only real complaint is the speed at which the game runs. IMO its just a bit fast. I'll adept but being used to rather slower games like Q3.. this trailer makes your head spin Oh well. ITs just me.

I think force speed will be the key to getting up the wall. You just run really fast then jump on or something of that sort. Sounds more simple then trying to force jump onto the wall sideways or something.. now trying to jump sideways would be a gravity problem since thats hard to do and running up a wall like the matrix sounds better and makes a lot more sense.

Ahhh... good, good stuff. I don't know if it's been covered before, but did anyone else notice that his force pool automatically started filling up after he used the mind trick? And those wall walks/Jumps... I love the fluidity of Kyle's movements and that level 3 force grip? oh yeah.

Do you mean you can use Force Push to block missiles? That would make it more bearable. hehe, that would suck if you used Force Pull by accident.


I also didn't see to much sabre vs. sabre action. It doesn't seem like you can have an actual duel that would last for more than a few seconds. Maybe it is possible, we just didn't see it. A nice 10+ second duel would really fuel my fire. Someday...

I'm a sabre-junkie.

But I think the best way to figure out how the moves are done is to wait 15 days, buy the game, read the manual and then practice being a BAD A$$ MOTHER!@#$%& of a Jedi

Great looking trailer. Like everyone else I really liked the back thrust of the saber into the reborn. Level design looks pretty darn sweet. The speed does seem a bit too much, but that's something I'll have to judge upon playing the game.

All in all, it looks as if JO is going to be a huge hit. Can't wait for the 29th.

Maybe all you have to do is press your 'right' key quick, like double clicking your mouse. My 'slide right' key is 'd'. So I would press 'd''d'. That is, if the wall was to my right. 'A' to the left.

I don't know.

Someone mentioned a force power, maybe Force Rage? Maybe you get enveloped in the red energy while you are in Force Rage.

You beat me Qel and, woohoo, I was right.

If you have evenly matched opponents I think it could last a very long time.

some clarifications

There is an orange saber.

All the acrobatics and saber moves were done with my basic 6 key setup (forward, backward, strafe left, strafe right, crouch and jump) and my mouse (only needed first button for primary attack).

I did the backstab because I knew the jedi was behind me (I knew he was following me - a part of the video you didn't see). It's not hard to do.

Saber duels can last some time - you only saw bits of them (of course, the length and pacing of the saber duels depends greatly on how you approach a saber duel and how you use the moves and powers available to you).

That was level 3 force grip.

You can force-push away missiles, even the tracking rockets.

I don't recall seeing force speed being used in the trailer.

The gameplay in the trailer did seem faster than I remember the game being when I was recording it, but I think, like racecar drivers (and jedi), your perception quickens and everything slows down around you when you're in the thick of it.

Hey cool, a Raven guy replied heh. Anyway...I was looking at the trailer again and i noticed that the force mana pool replenishes MUCH slower in multiplayer, maybe 1/2 the speed of the single player, but in single player it replenishes rather quickly, which is nice.

Force jump uses like 1.5 mana blocks, saber throw seems to use about 2 to 3. Lightning eats mana for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and then it comes back for dessert 3 times (watch that blue bar DROP, baby!)

Thanks for the 'official' RAVEN reply ChangKhan.

That is cool that you can do everything with the basic set up(6-keys! good job!). I was worried about that.

And I am more relieved(sp?) about the dueling. I am SOOOO looking forward to it.

Hey ChangKhan[RAVEN], if you're still around, would you mind explaining how the force power controls work? in JK, i'd either cycle through all the powers with brackets, which got annoying (you only have so many hands...), or i'd bind all of them to Numpad keys, which also got annoying (again, 2 hands).

How does it work in JO? Same type of thing? Maybe i'll bind my mouse wheel for it this time, if it is :|

Well, I would sure hope the lightsaber stuff would last long. JO is supposed to represent the movie oriented lightsaber stuff and those last a long time. That added to the fun/suspense. I would be very dissappointed if this is not the case. This is the area I am most excited about.

You have to call them, I think. If you go to Purchase, then Standard Version, then the link after "Did you already order Standard and want Collectors?". It pops up a window with a toll-free number that you need to call before 6PM PST (9PM EST). Here's the text out of that window:

To change your order, call us toll-free at 1-888-532-4263, Mon-Fri 7am-6pm PST, and ask for item #01-99970.

Don't ask for that item cuz then they'll ship you Collector's Just tell them that you'd like to cancel your order, and you should probly have your order number handy. Forgot your order details? Go to this site:

http://www.lucasarts.com/companystore/orderstatus.htm

and enter in your name and pw and it'll give you your order stuff. you can't cancel it there thought. i HOPE you can call and cancel...

Personally, i think i'll go to the store to buy it. It'll probly be faster, AND i get the fun of going to a store and picking it up instead of waiting by my door
