See here's the problem, isn't everyone just gping to want to be either a Jedi or Sith? I mean, i'd totally roll a bounty hunter or Agent or something like that, but i still imagine 90% of all wankers will just be running around with their dual blade light sabers trying to force choke bitches while wishing they were darth maul.

this game desperately needs chat bubbles. was very frustrating even attempting to get someones attention who was right in front of you when playing the beta. this is probably small thing for most people, but for me it will end up becoming a huge annoyance the longer i play. I like my MMO's to be sociable, not a single player game peppered with other player characters who never talk to you

Blasters? so uncivilized http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CA8sHtmy0vo

Jedi and Sith are what makes Star Wars so unique IMO, they are the superhero/villains of the series. Who wouldnt want a lightsaber to do cool melee fights and use the force to force hold, force push, lightning, leap attacks...etc.

He's not saying Jedi or Sith are a problem. He's saying the other characters will likely appear boring to everyone and they'll just be ignored.

Well I have been playing the beta, and a lot of people are liking more BH than Jedi or Sith.

Yeah but that's the people hard core enough to be in the beta, when everybody gets access i bet there will be at least an 80% slice going jedi/sith :)

Also, most people in the beta--including myself--did not choose the class they plan to play at launch, so if most went Bounty Hunter or any other ranged class (excluding consular), then most who participated the beta likely go for the Jedi/Sith melee classes at launch. Unless by some poor choice everyone in the beta decided to go try out the class they plan to play at launch, forgetting that they cant transfer over their beta characters into the main game, forcing them to go through hours of the same quests all over again at launch.

About the game

    Sdarts Oh, yeah, I just remembered. Papers, Please does something similar as well. Puts you in an unconfortable position. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Spec Ops: The Line does something similar, and I wish more games put you on that spot. Try to make you think: "WTF do I do?" and etc. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Decisions like that. If the game's story is really good, you actually feel the weight of them and how there's no "win" choice, just worse and even worse choices. Some books and movies try to convey it (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: Just hypothetical and nothing to do with the game: Do you blow a school full of children where a terrorist is hiding? Or let him go free to potentially kill thousands more innocents? (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: I can't mention the scene in question without spoiling, but one option was almost impossible and the other was "easy" to do, but the "easy" one was something "monstrous". So values. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: I don't know. The shooting felt off. It had mouse acceleration, which I hate. Cover wasn't fluid. But I loved the story. I also couldn't stand the voice of Drake in that setting. (3 Hours ago)
  • digi_matrix
    digi_matrix I love when story and gameplay match, and most of it is told in-game than just cutscenes. Remedy's games are also great at that. (3 Hours ago)
