Jedi Academy Preview

The Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Preview on The Electric Playground is online (thanks Frans), offering thoughts on the upcoming installment in the Star Wars shooter series based on seeing the game at E3. The outline of what to expect from the game is pretty general, though it does offer a brief first-hand impression amid the description of planned features: "At E3 we saw what appeared to be the snow-blasted plains of Hoth. They did a great job of conveying the chilly atmosphere--as the Jedi walked around, he raised his arms to shield his face from the wind."

I stopped having fun after the first patch neutered force heal and force absorb to make them 1/4 as useful.

how would you throw a dual bladed saber

The same way you throw a quarterstaff, or a polearm, or whatever like that. Overhead with the staff / saber held horizontally, and then just kinda "twirl" it to your opponent. Would sure be freaking effective with a dual bladed saber, I can tell you that.

Oh well, whatever. I never used saber throw in Jedi Outcast unless it was when I was force choking some poor schmuck, and had the dismemberment option on. Hehe, sushi!
Much more fun, however, was when you had force grip 3 and force push 3. Force Grip the guy, then look almost straight up and Force Push. Watch him arc, fall down, and then scream aaaaahhhhhh and splatter on the floor.
Or, if you're really nasty, move under him and cut him up with your saber in what has to be one of the coolest finishing moves of all time.

I think it's time I take another spin through Jedi Outcast.

how would you throw a dual bladed saber? your arm would be cut off unless you thrusted it forward and if you did that the blades wouldnt touch the enemy.

Yeah right you are nin. Stupid English language

Why can't you throw a dual bladed saber though. I guess it's just a balancing issue.

I don't really care anyways, I WANT this game BADDDDDDD.
(both for single player AND for multiplayer in which it seems they have listened to the biggest complaints about the original Jedi Outcast's multiplayer, and are adding objective based scenario's etc. My cup runneth over.)

why can't you kick with a single blade.. that doesn't make any sense... it's nice to know theyre are balancing this because it could mean the life or death of the multiplayer in this game

Creston, I believe there's going to be single blade, dual blade (like Darth Maul) and then duel wielding (one single blade in each hand).

I think your quote is talking about a dual blade, and you're talking about a duel wielding...

"A Jedi who uses a single blade can throw their lightsaber, but a double-blade bearing Jedi cannot. However, they are able to kick opponents, which the single bladed characters cannot do."

I would have figured it to be the other way around. With two, you can easily throw one, still have one left. While kicking at someone when you have BOTH hands full of dismembering energy beams might seem a little bit hazardous. (Try kicking at something, one of your hands is always dangerously near that leg..)

Can't wait for it to come out though!

haha, yep, and faggios are good for exploring...you can take them up stairs, around the back of some buildings to where some weapons are, etc....i really use the parking brake alot for tighter turns...bound to my 2nd mouse button. the dirty sanchez is cool too, esp. on the beach. Also nice that if your car is burning and ready to explode, you can jump out.

fastest way to get to missions is swiping a faggio in my opinion... it's easier to weave in and out of traffic and not as easy to crash as with the motorcycles

Nice to see adopted here.

I read these boards, never really post.
The comments they've made about the VE3D kids are largely true, though. Every topic ends up being 75% idiots, 25% really interesting, good posts.

I stuck around because that 25% made it well worth it. Usually. Sometimes.

Just before seeing this preview I was messing around with a Hoth custom addon level for Jedi Knight 2. Very impressive and to me seems to be a hint of Jedi Academy since it will have a Hoth level. I'm looking forward to this game. KATOR I'm not sure about yet. Could be good as well.
