  1. I think evidence points very strongly to it being a Yuuzhan Vong ship.
  2. Yeah, if you look you'll see we had threads about the Revan book a while back.
  3. I just pray that the next RPG will be of better quality than ME3 and TOR
  4. This is really not the case. Since Disney is licensing now, we're likely to see more Star Wars video games than ever before. Licensing an IP is virtually no-risk, so Disney is likely to allow as many developers as possible to make games as long as they pay the license.
  5. Disney Closes Game Publisher Lucasarts Games are not necessarily dead, however. On the surface this looks like the end, but in fact I think it's good news. Lucasarts hasn't made a passable game since Force Unleashed, and it hasn't really had a good year since 2005. The licensing model will allow more star wars games to be produced because Disney isn't the one taking the risk. Given that Obsidian has said that they want to make KotOR 3, the only thing in the way now is whatever Disney will charge for the license, which they really have no reason not to grant unless they want to give it to somebody else.
  6. Can we get a consensus that Revan and the exile's fate were written for the sole purpose of marketing the very loose tie-in mmo? Their character arcs were pretty hastily undermined and brushed away for the purpose of introducing a new set of villains for The Old Republic. I don't see another interpretation unless you start grasping for straws.
  7. That's an awfully nice euphamism for "mercilessly retcons and exploits existing EU."
  8. Title. Lucasarts is a subsidiary of Lucasfilm, so Disney now owns that as well. No doubt they want to profit from every available resource. Does new management give the Kotor franchise a brighter future? I think it does, only because the future was pretty grim under the status quo. Shaking things up is Kotor 3's best shot, I think. They're gonna want big name video game releases around 2015 to help hype their new movie, and new Battlefront, Republic Commando and Kotor games could be just what they want.
  9. You do realize that Disney made every Marvel movie since 2009 (ie post Iron Man 1), including the Avengers? It's not going to be mickey mouse. This is good news. Maybe I'm unique in that I really don't think bad sequels ever hurt my appreciation for originals. So really, worst case scenario, they release something I just ignore. Best case, we get good movies again (ie no George Lucas dialogue)
  10. And she doesn't mean her identity as Darth Traya, because Mical explicitly states that he recognizes her in spite of the dark side: The council conveniently doesn't call her Kreia, though they recognize her and think she died in the Mandalorian wars.Brianne noticeably mentions that the body was never recovered. Kreia knows all about Arren Kae. Both are Revan's first master. Both are exiles. Kae + Traya= ??? profit. Honestly, the alternate theory is that Mical and Atris recognize some other secret identity she had? That the body never being found and the name Kreia being spoken by no one that knew her from before are coincidences? That Revan had two first masters and two final masters? That the Handmaidens' saying betrayal runs in Brianne's blood and the whole Darth Traya thing just kind of coincide? It doesn't matter that they don't specifically say she is Kae. They explicitly state that she is NOT Kreia.
  11. Yeah, I use 360 controller for FU1 and it's infinitely better than keyboard and mouse for this game.
  12. Not sure I agree with this. If you employ that attitude, the use of lightsabers in a universe this technologically advanced is just as stupid. It's a laser sword, for Christ's sake. A laser sword. Swords aren't even viable today.
  13. The rail-shooting in TOR cannot be worse than the space combat in KotOR. What a cheap pain in the ass that always was. Not interesting, not hard, not fun. TOR space combat reminds me a lot of that, except that it looks aesthetically pleasing. I'll take it for what it is.
  14. I agree with about half of this. It breaks my heart to see a great era like Tales of the Jedi get stomped by newcomers, but at the same time I can't help but feel that KotOR, outside of this fact, is one of the very, very few EU contributions that really feels like it's Star Wars. KotOR II was very... different, and while Nihilus devouring a whole planet still bothers me, I do like the idea of the ancient Sith being something the Jedi in the Prequel Trilogy were truly afraid of the seeing again. The criticism of The Old Republic, and how everything about it looks like it could just as easily have been set directly during the galactic civil war is something I couldn't agree more with. Why the hell do the troopers look like storm troopers? And the fact that the trooper looks exactly like Jango Fett in Hope pisses me off beyond belief. Even the symbol of the empire looks almost exactly like the symbol of Palpatine's Empire. Wtf is that? It's retarded.
  15. That's actually not a bad explanation, but wouldn't it have been a better plan on Vader's part to use the Dark Clone to convince everyone he was Starkiller in the first place? Why risk letting the original (maybe) get loose?
  16. Just one more reason for the Dark Ending to be canon. I suppose they might argue the Dark Clone was not supposed to reveal his existence unless he absolutely had to, but things seem to turn out pretty well for the Empire when he does. Maybe Dark Clone is banking on being able to save Vader with ease and keep himself secret all at once? Who knows. Probably not the people who wrote it.
  17. ...is why the Dark Side ending is not the canon one. Because it's the only genuinely good moment in the game. It resolves more problems than the Light Side ending (ie where are Juno and Kota in the OT?). The Dark Clone is obviously something that needs to be resolved, but in the Light Side ending you still need to get rid of Kota before A New Hope and Vader has to get away. Dark Side ending is awesome. Why is the canon ending ALWAYS Light Side?
  18. Why is everyone complaining about the story when in fact it's that absolutely retarded "edgy" lightsaber grip that ruins everything? Starkiller has a quirky style of fighting, okay. OH BUT ITS SO COOL THAT EVERY COOL CHARACTER SHOULD DO IT. I think they should remake the movie saga with every Jedi/Sith holding their lightsaber like that.
  19. Nothing to say about the topic at large, but... ...I believe you mean George Orwell.
  20. Welcome to the forums, DarthReign! I think Yoda will probably have some part in FU2 but I hope it's not too major, as I feel having him play a big role before Empire Strikes Back sort of takes away some of the mystique. I think you're thinking of Aurra Sing, and I agree she'd be a pretty good character to include. What I really want to see is Maris Brood be meaningful to the plot in some way. Her presence in FU seems contrived to include more levels, and I think her being a major character in FU2 would help make up for that a lot.
  21. You only have to replay the final level, not the whole game. There's a level select menu somewhere.
  22. Well, I got the Sith Edition for PC for Christmas and I've played through the game once on Sith Lord. As tedious as it was, I think a lot of my frustration came from knowing that other people got really frustrated with this part. Granted, I haven't tried it on Sith Master, but it took me something like 15-30 minutes (it's so hard to tell when you're doing nothing but running back and forth zapping and dragging). I managed to beat it just by playing chicken with the TIE fighters and not stopping dragging it down until I was actually being fired on. I tried to hide behind one of the things that juts up so the TIEs couldn't get me, but when you initiate dragging the star destroyer down they put you in the center automatically. I also didn't have any trouble with the arrows pointing the wrong way or anything like that, as I've seen some of you mention. Was it fixed in the PC port or was I just lucky? In short, this was a pain but didn't slow my progress through the game in any real way.
  23. Canada's a pretty cool guy. Eh speaks French and doesn't afraid of anything. At least in Quebec. When I was in Montreal for a week I went to some theme park and the English was just skewed enough to be funny: "Please hold yourself firmly." They also have Maple Syrup and a beaver surplus.
  24. As far as it resembling the TIE window--I'm pretty sure that there is some depth lost here in the picture. They say the seven windows are intended to provide a 'panoramic view.' I'm pretty sure those six around the edge would surround you and up would be the middle one.
