When you slice a person, do you slice him with the fastest stroke, or do you forcefully incapacitate him?

That's certainly interesting. Perhaps Raven will be working on the game more extensively (gameplay) this time. :]

I just hope they take as long as they need to get a fully-polished game out of the door. There were a couple of show-stopping bugs in JO's SP on release (Lando and the two Kyles among them), so I hope they use any extra time to get kitted out and go on a Big Bug Hunt. I know they have deadlines to meet, but Lucasarts should allow them more flexibility this time, IMHO.

Indeed. Take the time to make a polished game. I can handle a little waiting...

What bugs are you refering to? I'm not sure if I know about them.

There was a bug where Lando would survive the attack in the hangar with the Lady Luck, but did not board the vessel (just stood around loitering in the corner when I played it)...which meant he did not tell you about fueling the ship, which meant you couldn't complete the level (even if you knew what to do and where to go).

The 'two Kyles' happened to me when I loaded a saved game...suddenly I had two kyle models inhabiting the same space, and I could move one but not the other...and it looked really, really weird - two heads, four arms, that sort of thing. Other people experienced it too at the time, along with other glitches.

So hopefully this kind of thing will be kept to a minimum out of the box.

I kinda figured this would happen. Oh well, I just hope they make the necessary improvments/adjustments to make the game better.

The season before winter is fall, or autumn. And between 21 december and 21 february it's winter, so when they say witner 2003, they should release it between the 21st and 31st of december 2003, hahaha!!

it could be wrong. For star wars galaxies they have it down for Q1 of 2004, but the developers on the board said no way its coming out in june or july. Keep ur hopes up i am.

My guess would be beginning of November... I think that month is cold enough for LucasArts to call it winter

Edit Taos - That's probably not a good idea if you want to continue to be a member here.

Moving on, I guess it's a good thing that they pushed it back... as long as everything is near PERFECT. I wish they let the public know a bit more about the game

Keep this in mind we want the game to be the best it can be, right.

It's ok,I didn't know initially,fortunately I didn't get any of the bugs mentioned above.Let's just hope that the change in release date is just to make things smooth.After alll,I might get it for christmas.

Anyway,in the meantime,let's go get KotOR!Pushed back to Summer 2003!Kinda funny,eh?At first both of them were to be expected in Fall 2003,then one changed to Summer 2003 and one to Winter 2003.Guess LEC won't want to shoot themselves in the leg after all,eh?

Well looking at other games that are pushed back, its usually not because they want to put more wokr into it, its mostly purely because of marketing reasons.

They dont want 3 star wars games released at the same time so they might hold one back just for that sole reason, so bear in mind that the title might be finished but just not released.

Some time in the last 48 hours. Either they're having a glitch with their site (which they've had in the past), or they've spoken to Raven who must have assured them they could make the deadline.

Well, what do you think? George Lucas had to have some inspiration for the force . In ANH, the force wasn't clear. Once he had a larger company, and watching his employees, he must have realized what made Lucasarts such a wonderful company.

Come Ep5, he new what the force was.

It was the special powers the devs tap into to make themselves more efficient (or make it look like they were more efficient (mindtrick). The powers of the dark side are from how he punishes those who are incompetant, or slack.

DISCLAIMER: THE GUESSES OF MASTER_THOMAS ARE COMPLETELY FICTIONAL THE DEVELOPERS DO NOT POSSESS THE "FORCE". IT WAS MERELY THE CREATIVE GENIOUS OF GEORGE LUCAS.
From the board of Lucasfilm ltd.

I just had to do a disclaimer. lol

Maybe, they just want to tear at our patience until we're screaming for it and then release it early so sales will thrive. Then, they decided that as too sneaky and would make us, their loyal community, mad.

well i never got the whole doubel kyel bugs, or the lando does not move one, yeah for me. but one thing though, with this whole pushing back, moving fowared thing, its LEC alright, there toying with our emotions, they know this game is the most highly antisapated{spelling, whoe} so they play yo yo, pull it back, or hopes and dreams go with it, they pull it forword, we rejoice, take a national holiday!! then they pull it back, we go insain, crazy, kill our kats, in the antisapation, then, right before it's suposed to come out

BAM! they push it forward, early realese date, we rush to the stores, cry and push our way through the lines, buy it, sales rocket through the roof!!!!! and we live our happy meaningless life. The End

Whatever it is,we all do hope that Raven would do their best to bring out a balanced game out of JK:JA.Do not dissappoint the multiplayer section.

I totally agree. They need to find the balance in the Force.

LOL - It's not being negative Stormy, it's just me preparing for the worst. So that if/when it happens, I'm not surprised. Understand my logic?

I understand perfectly. Just yanking your chain. Besides...I wanted to use that quote, somewhere.

At least they're not pulling a DNF on us, and saying...'It's done when it's done'. Yeah...riiiight. Keep taking the dried frog tablets, 3DR...
