Yeah. A little Uncharted, a little Mass Effect...

I hear this might be the most visually impressive game yet, but this title bugs me still. Apparently there's going to be no Jedi or force influence of any kind in this game. You are a bounty hunter we've never really heard before, playing in a seedy city we've never seen before. And you'll never encounter any Sith or Jedi. So I'm thinking: Why is this a Star Wars game? It's like making a detective game set in Gotham City, but without any superhero/villains.

I thought it was supposed to be set on Coruscant on the lower levels? And that was the explanation of the game title, or did the info change at E3?

Yeah it's in coruscant so hardly a place we've never seen before considering 90% of the EU Star wars stuff takes place around Coruscant. They also didn't say no force at all from what i read, just that the main character isn't force sensitive. Doesn't rule out you hunting down a jedi or two in the story but it won't focus on that kind of thing. It looks like it is going to be an awesome game. It's said to be dark and gritty and will be rated for adults and will show the underworld of the star wars universe. LJJ doesn't have a clue with his post.

I'm pretty sure I saw a screenshot from someone at E3 and the character was carrying a lightsaber. How cool would a mission be where you have to kill a Jedi, and then get to take his lightsaber and **** up someone with it?

Oh **** that does look badass! I agree with the Mass Effect comparison. Is it a full scale RPG/Action like that? Or just a shooter?

Nothing's really been released except right now it runs on Unreal Engine 3, and that the demo was on a PC. that's about it really.

It's on Coruscant, but on a part of Coruscant we've never ever seen before. So it's only Coruscant by name really, could have been given any other name and you wouldn't have known the difference.

And the Giantbomb guys were talking last night about how there is no force or jedi at all in the game. They usually know what they are talking about, so I'll take their word over yours.

But yeah, "dark and gritty". The magic words. :rolleyes:

I remember they made a bounty hunter game on the PS2 that was pretty neat. Not Bobbo Fett, but his Dad who was in the prequels. Repetitive, but entertaining enough. I don't recall their being Jedi or Sith in that, it can work if it's got decent gameplay and a good story.

Yeah, not really interested in playing a Star Wars game where I don't get to rip shit up as a Jedi.

Agreed... You gotta at least have some force sensitivity or some light sabers... Something

I'll be on it if they tell me there are some jedi or sith involved..

The Setting. Coruscant. It's a lazy way to attract a wider customer base by shoving it into Star Wars lore. But, that doesn't bother me. The vid Al Thornton linked looks like it's right in my wheelhouse. I don't mind the absence 0of force mechanics either. After the massively disappointing TFU experience, I may have skipped over this.

Still, I agree with the point you're making(I think). LucasArts trying to resuscitate themselves by funneling all creative ideas into the Star Wars machine. If the game was simply titled 1313, my interest level would be the same. However, it wouldn't get the exposure.

On that note, they should really crank out the titles people would rather see and take their time, so they can make something that works. Most people I know want a battlefield 3, and more importantly if you played either of the first two, you want the third KOTOR. Hell, even a continuation or a completely new republic commando wouldn't be bad at this point.:oldlol:
