Batsaber

I heard a while ago that originally there was a feature in Jedi Outcast that they called the "Batsaber"... basically, instead of slicing through your opponent, it would fling them back as though they'd been hit by a baseball bat. Appearantly, this was taken out of the game because Raven (?) held a poll asking the fans if they wanted this... the fans voted no on the grounds that batting a person around isn't realistic for a lightsaber.

I'd just like to say that I was watching Return of the Jedi the other day, and these fans are completely wrong. Luke is knocking people all over the place in the battle above the Sarlacc pit

OMG the Batsaber LOL! That brings back memories.....what was it ABL? Anti Batsaber League? LOL yes, it was pretty bad. You would hit somone and they would fly about 10 feet do about 3 spins and go about 5 feet in the air.


All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost

Nope - 'twas our very own digl (and, according to Raven, they were planning to remove it anyway - but they did say it was "cool" in a public chat...)

If you could see my sig, it would read:
