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."

The word dork reminds me of the 80's.

I'm afraid KOTOR is starting to look a little too console-portish, if you know what I mean. I love the first 2 Baldurs Gate games, so I have faith in the developers, but those were for PC only, and it shows.

Multi platform games are starting to equil SUCK to me. The only one I've liked so far is Vice City. Even it has it's console-root flaws.

I havn't lost faith in KOTOR yet, but I'm not near as excited as I was at it's launch. As far as Jedi Acadamy goes, I know I'll dig it, because Raven is one of the most consistant developers, JK2 was great, and they are still using the quake 3 engine which they have become so familiar with. I liked the quote from one of the Raven team. Forget the exact wording but it went something like:
"It's great to be able to do a game in the same engine. All the things we were learning the first time around we know now, and this time instead of learning the engine with our development time we can concentrate purely on content."

Something like that, anyway.

The fact that it's a nerd RPG, it's being made on the NWN engine and there is no multiplayer. I was enthused about it until I found that part out. Also I don't like games where it rolls the multisided nerd dice every time I attack.

I'm curious... why have you given up on KOTOR? After playing it at the past 2 E3s, it seems like a lot of fun and a creative addition to the SW Universe.

Where's the love?

They can't even form sentences correctly.

Just to keep things on topic, I would like to add that I really hope this game turns out super in quality. I've given up on KOTOR and I don't want to be completely disappointed with their new Star Wars crap.

I just came over from the free porno link page. My favorite lesbian site has turned hetero, so I'm going to make Blue's my new homepage! Hope you don't mind if I rave about lesbians from time to time, as there will be an adjustment period I must go through.

To be on topic, does Jedi Academy feature any lesbian Jedi Knightresses?

The one thing that I will always appreciate voodoo extreme for was giving Old Man Murray a target. Now that was comedy.

C'mon there Oberiko

Everyone that's ever been to Ve3d in the past knows that off topic forum fodder is what the ve3d user is ALL about. Eventually there'll be a racial slur or a political standpoint or someone making a fanboy topic and then the threa will REALLY sonic.

Just bite down hard Bluesnews users...

So like, if I post a comment to a story, I put in a subject? Odd.

Anyway, I was going to say...

After my posts, I put my name. Sorry if this bothers you. Get used to it. I really am a nice guy. Swear. You can ask anyone at ve3d. Also, I've been many woman so...
