Wanna share one of those comps with a fellow SW fan?

PC Gamer in their recent magazine did a preview on it (even had unseen screens) It was awesome. I relly want to see the Jedi battles now. Fliping every where all those force manuvers. Too cool.

I used to have two comps, but one was an old 133 non-pentium off brand type computer that couldn't run word without slowing down. So i threw it away. I'm hopin to get a new comp around Chrsitmas, or at least a new video card.

It's good to see people are still buying it. Are you going to learn how to edit it now, Rommel?

But cog is easy to do. It doesn't take much time, unless you want to write entirely new cog files. I mainly just edits the ones found in the game, and that is easy and a ton of fun.

I voted Maybe..
yeah, yeah, i know...
..it's just that those FPS games don't sit that well with me. It's the controls that freak me out. If i could make it real easy, i'd probably go ape over it. Right now, i'm waiting on the first reviews.

What do ya mean? JKs controls were really easy. Don't let people tell you to use the mouse. Use the keyboard, that is the easiest. You control direction with your right hand on the arrows. Then, just about every button within reach of your left hand can be assigned to a force power or ability. This makes everything really easy to get to.

I never had a problem with the controls. I thought they were really easy to use, in fact I had expected them to be harder.

I am going to definitely get JKII, but like tie, I am probably going to have to get a new computer to play it. That really makes the game a little more expensive. I still remember waiting very patiently (yeah right) for the first one to come out. I got into Dark Forces the original and JK just rocked. everything I have seen on JK:II looks great. I just wish they would have made it Dark Forces III. It seems sort of weird the way they did it. I know it was a marketing thing, but why couldn't they just call it Dark Farces III: Jedi Outcast. I think it would have been fine, but oh well. JK is in my opinion the best game ever. I just started playing MoTS again. I never go all the way through it, and I and trying to get more adept with the force powers.

A quick question, does force push work sort of like what Obi-Wan did in ep 1 do the droids, or is it just sort of a force nudge?

It's not really on my list of games to buy like GB is, I might get it, but it's not really high priority.

I'll probably get it as soon as it comes out!!! Here is a link to a picture of Kyle doing a Force push to a stormtrooper in JKII.

just scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Force Push

I like fps games I've completed every fps game I own and thats a lot, JK, SOF, MotS, Elite Force and the list goes on a on. Also about the controls I use the keyboard and mouse b/c if you have the mouse controls set just right they can give you a lot of things the keyboard by itself can't like precise aiming and some things. But on most modern games like SOF the mouse controls are set just right but on the older ones like JK the mouse controls are set different and aren't as good as they are now days. Also about force push on MotS how far you pushed something depended on how long you held down the hotkey for force push, and you can only use it on an indivadual instead of a group like in ep1. I especially like to force push people off the edge of cliffs and they said on JK2 you can hear them screaming all the way down.

well, i've pretty much taken advantage of my gravis joystick so i refer to that and my keyboard for movement in FPS games. i loved JK when i got that along with mysteries of the sith. the weapons were great and it's just something about having a FPS type game in the star wars universe with all those characters. it's for sure i'm going to get this game when it comes out. hopefully some of my pals get it so we can combat online and talk trash like we always do...

I imagine it will be very similar to JK, in that you can fight other in a death match type game. However, i believe that the support has grown so tha tyou can have many time more players than before. I also hope they add some other multiplayer modes, maybe even CO-OP, that would rule.
