  1. I will agree with Square Enix, Hitman Absolution is amazing, and a completely innovative and different styled game than those before it. I applaud Square Enix for where they took Hitman, and i would be excited to see what they could do with something like Star Wars. However, Disney doesn't have to use them. they could do it all in house, and remove outside creativity from the process. It will be interesting to see what happens, but i guess no one can really say what will happen with any games, including 1313, until we see what Disney is capable of with an franchise like Star Wars. But like many giant corporations, they are capable of incalculable good, and unfathomable evil.
  2. I heard that about Disneys plans, mobile games and little crap like that. Not exactly my choice of platforms to take star wars, but i guess that is where the money is. Has Disney put out any decent games? There was some hype about epic mickey when it came out, but i haven't heard of anything else. I guess hopes and dreams don't pay to have games made.
  3. Yes, much longer. I liked the game itself. It had a bunch of new, interesting droids to fight, characters that we didn't expect, but even though they had a small part, they were still significant to the people that cared (obviously Yoda and the Fett). But more variety in the levels, and more of them. Yes the first one had Felucia twice, and Raxus Prime twice, but they were different mood to the world, and different ways the world reacted to your presence. If i can spend half a Star Wars game on Cato Neimoidia, i am being left wanting.
  4. possible bonus points for Disney if they pay attention to the people that buy star wars games. Make TFU3 and make it good!
  5. In the forst and second games, the most tedious for me was the Bull rancor and the Gorog. For the bull roncor, you can lightning the hell out of it and dodge charges, sometimes throwing Maris Brood at it, but you just gotta lightning, dodge lightning, dodge, lightning, dodge. It got old really fast. And the Gorog, same problems. Attack the beast, dodge the hand swipes, attack again. Pin the Hand, attack, dodge, attack dodge, pin other hand back. It wasn't overly difficult, but it was just time consuming and again, got old really quick.
  6. as soon as 1313 was announced, the chance for a TFU3 went farther adn farther down the tubes. Now that they have opened up a new game, as well as continued development on The Old Republic, i doubt TFU3 will ever see the light of day. Don't get me wrong, i am hoping like hell that they bring Starkillers story to a close, but i hope the same thing about Republic Commando 2, and the likelihood of that, is next to nil
  7. a dark bluish purple could also look like an almost maroon colour, again like delta 07. Where else did they have to go? Yellow wouldn't show up against white armor, and Scorch already has yellow mixed in with the black on his armor. Blue could work, but in a dark environment, it might be hard to tell which is blue and which is green. Red is already taken. Green is already gone. A greyish colour would have looked pretty cool. I still think that you can't get much more mysterious, stealthy or just plain badass, than a nice matte black finish throughout the whole of the armor, and just the faintest glow of red or orange from the visor, just too look a little bit more sinister, especially from the shadows. All you see is a faint red T looking at you before a vibroblade comes between your ribs.
  8. I'm on board. I am almost ashamed to say so, but i am a sucker for closure. I hate when something just ends, no solution to the main problem, just ending. I will buy TFU3, and i will probably buy the special edition, because i am a special edition whore. The story has to have a good ending, this IS star wars for christ-sakes. There is a way of saving the franchise, and they have to think of it, i have mild confidence that they do, but i will buy it just for the story.
  9. just because you don't think anything is going to happen with RC2, doesn't mean the rest of us can't hope like hell, and maybe something will happen. It's not that the world is ignoring you, it just doesn't like what you have said. i'm keeping up the hope that RC2 will happen. For the love of god, if Unleashed 3 is going to happen, than RC2 has a fighting chance. I don't think LucasArts and Epic would have gotten Unreal 3 if they weren't planning on doing something with it.it does beg the question, "what will they do with it now that they have it?" Getting ahold of the guy that did the original RC seems like a step in the right direction, but his resume as far as Star Wars games go is pretty extensive, so it could be another battlefront, or another x-wing game. I say go the Tom Clancy route, and make a stealth game with the ARCs (a la Splinter Cell) and have it tie into a special forces game like the Republic/Imperial Commando (a la Rainbow 6/Ghost Recon) and tie all of that in with a combat flight simulator with TIE fighter, intercepters and the like (a la HAWX) One big Star Wars family
  10. the storyline of cloning opened up way to many possibilities, most of them ridiculous. they could go the cloned Juno way, the Cloned Vader way, or hell, while we are cloning everyone, maybe Kota is a clone too. The cloning storyline is a very slippery slope, and i think the unleashed makers have gone from the top of that particular mountain, to the bottom in very short order. I can't think of an ending to the Unleashed trilogy that doesn't make a mockery of the Star Wars universe. for all the resources put into TFU2, put it against The Old Republic, and make it come out a year sooner, put it behind another Republic Commando game, and bring the only successful Star Wars shooter into the 360/ps3 era
  11. i will agree that the game was a failure, it didn't live up to a lot of expectations, but i kind of liked the story, maybe it is just that i am a sucker for endings that weren't endings, and a story that is definitely going to end, i am still looking forward to Unleashed 3, i just hope they keep an eye on forums, and reviews. make steps forward, not backwards. The level i hated in the first game (the bull rancor) is too similar to the Gorog, it was just tedious, doing the exact same thing over and over and over, with very little accomplished each time. Hopefully there isn't a level like this in TFU3, but maybe some people liked it.
  12. umm, i never played any of the KOTOR games, some people would probably be really pissed about that, but i am just not that much of a PC guy, so you'll have to forgive me if i reply to that one with "i don't get it" I even read the half-finished feeling Imperial Commando: 501st book. It was good, but it didn't go far enough into Delta. Darman and Niner's stories are still very important to the whole Republic Commando world, but Delta was where i started with the video game, i didn't get into the books until about 2 years ago. Kind of an after thought, but i bought Republic Commando when i bought my original Xbox, and then sold the whole package after i got my 360. Finding Republic Commando again is actually hard to do. I searched 2 1/2 provinces to find a copy, and nothing, eBay is a hell of a thing, and there is a bunch of used copies for like $20, but someone managed to have a still wrapped copy of Republic Commando for the Xbox, and was selling it for like $100. Not going to roll out a hundy for something sealed, when i am just going to open it as soon as i get it. The moral of the story, is that i am a moron, and should not have sold it. You never know when you will have a nostalgia attack.
  13. it will drive you insane if you let it. You have to destroy the TIE fighters as quickly as possible, some people say saber throw works well, but lightning is the ticket. follow the directions that the screen gives you to the second. let the TIE fighters hit you until you can take one more hit, about one hit below where your health bar narrows, then you have no choice but to let go, and lay waste to the TIE fighters again. You will gain all your health back. then start again, if you are good, you can do it in three or four cycles.
  14. i've read Order 66, and it doesn't go as indepth to Sev's dissappearance as i would like, it only says that Walon Vau went to Kashyyyk to find sev, but didn't find anything. I want a proof of life, or a proof of death. I want someone to find Sev's helmet in a bazaar in tattooine, or Sev to become the new Mandalore or something like that, i'll settle for something as dumb as amnesia
  15. a comic would be great. I would settle for something a little more i depth than a cameo in The Clone Wars cartoon. It would be nice to see an examination of the different types of clones, and how they operate. Filoni owes us that much.
  16. This has already been well established, but it is still fun to dream about it. One of those "what if"'s that are so fun to hypothesize about. i still want some damn closure about Sev.
  17. go back to where the rancor came out of. There will be a cut scene, and you will be home free. Next time you play through, just get the rancor away from the door it came out of, and run in behind it, it will try to get into the little cave thing to get you, but the door will fall onto it's head, a la Luke vs Rancor in Return Of The Jedi
  18. and to be completely fair, treyarch wasn't completely to blame for World At War, they were only using half their staff on WaW. The other half was devoted to another game, i'm not sure what the game was, but the entire force of Treyarch hadn't come to bare behind a Call of Duty until Black Ops.
  19. maybe you don't necessarily have to be following the training and upbringing of palpatine, or vader. You can follow a Sith from the old Republic, living in hiding and secrecy, you find a powerul force user, and bring them to the dark side. Then they are trained from being a weak and scatterred being, to a piece of iron, a cold hard killer, something capable of overthrowing an entire galaxy. Maybe better for a movie or soemthing like that, but a game would be interesting.
  20. it would be great to go through the training to be a Sith Lord, but that sounds like somthing more suited to an open world RPG. I don't think the linear sotryline of TFU would really be suited to that kind of game. That being said, it would be interesting to see the way Vader made the dark clone, and trained him to be the vicious, remorseless killer that he is, and what needed to happen, maybe thats just my own curiousity instead of an idea for the gama, but it would be interesting Are you talking about Palpatine's story and his rise to unlimited power, or Anikin's descent into the darkside, and training as a Sith Lord?
  21. I'm saying would you rather have them put out a bunch of games, and over-saturate the genre, or would you rather have them put out one or two great games in 5 years, instead of pumping out a new one every year like clockwork?
  22. ^ Whatever books those are, i want to read them. that sounds like a hell of a story. If anyone can tell me what theese books are, i would love to get my grubby little hands on them.
  23. Infinity Ward and Activision started to not get along anymore. They just got too big. A few very important people at Infinity Ward was "dismissed", and several other very important people followed their bosses. Infinity Ward, in it's hayday, with the release of Modern Warfare and MW2, would have been amazing. No compromises on the games. But if Inifinty Ward would do it, would they keep going with it. If RC2 was as popular as the first Modern Warfare, would they make more? would they kill it? would they stop innovating like they did with the MW series? Would you rather have someone like Infinity Ward make an RC2, and an RC3, possibly an RC4, and possibly destroy it all with oversaturation of the same thing? Or would you rather have it go the way of a Halo movie? Not want it to happen, because you don't want them to screw it up.
  24. The Sith always betray one another. Vader would have to have found a suitable apprentice, soemthing of the "Savage Opress" variety. A violent, powerful monster that would be able to take the full force of Palpatine and keep going. Palpatine was too powerful for Vader alone. He may have been the chosen one, but he was still not powerful enough, and definately not smart enough to defeat Palpatine. Especially since Palaptine doesn't actually "die" until all the clones of his own body are destroyed, and he can no longer keep moving himself within the force from one body to another younger one. Vader couldn't have known this. One way or another, Vader would have tried to overthrow his old master. There is no way around it. Every Sith in history has been betrayed and destroyed, only to have their apprentice take their place. Vader still couldn't do it alone.
  25. it is going to be interesting to see which way LucasArts goes with this. Vader has to escape somehow. Will there be the dark clone coming out of the woodwork to free his boss, will the original starkiller show up out of the blue and, do . . . something. In order to stay canon, and not completely derail the entire franchise, they need Vader free, they need the rebelion to remain intact, and they need to kill off Starkiller and all his clones. I am hoping they don't screw this one up. I think they could have found a less preposterous way of telling a story in TFU2, but it's far too late for that.
