People laugh when I say that I think a jellyfish is one of the most beautiful things in the world. What they don't understand is, I mean a jellyfish with long, blond hair.

did anyone else see this

 

As we gear up for release, it's time to start exploring specific areas of Obsidian's upcoming RPG. You play as another Jedi amnesiac searching for the keys to your past.

 

Now I am beging to worry since we were told many times that the PC will have full knowledge of who they are, its just for the player to find out. SO the question is did IGN just screw up or is there something that we need to know???

A good find.

 

That stuff about the various styles is pretty interesting, though I'm sure the EU fanatics are sure to come out of the woodwork to compain that "those styles didn't exist then!!!!" :devil::lol:

 

 

 

So the Mace Windu and Qui-Gon styles are in...I hope the PC is just as acrobatic as Qui-Gon in his style.

Ten million diffirent lightsaber combinations

 

I wonder when Topaz will a have poll with each one of those to select from.

"We treat the lightsaber with great respect. We have increased their effectiveness and upgradeability and have also made them rarer. Creating your own lightsaber is a major quest in the game and a huge accomplishment. That being said, you will have your lightsaber throughout much of the game, but acquiring it is certainly a goal to aspire towards."

 

I'm glad to hear this. In kotor you didnt get feeling a lightsaber was a powerful and rare weapon. (w00t)

The thing that really got me interested was the part about the crystal that changed with the Jedi.

 

There are even rumors of an exceedingly rare type of crystal that bonds with its owner, becoming more powerful as they do. The bond is so great that the crystal's capabilities and color even vary with its master's alignment towards the light or dark side of the Force.

 

I wonder if there is a limit on how strong it can get? and how it changes colour?

With more "personalized" lightsabers, hopefully this cuts down on the number of lightsaber loot you can amass. It would be neat if everyone's lightsaber was bonded closely to its owner, and that the lightsaber becomes almost useless (maybe a severe drop in damage) if used by someone other than the owner.

A very good idea, and I too am curious about your first lightsaber, if it can be a saberstaff and all, that way you don't have to worryabout wasting single feats if your character is a dual wielder

Ooooh...Silver lightsabers.

 

Also the addition of forms and all the different upgrade possibilities are nice as well.

 

Although I do recall Mace Windu's form being discussed extensively in Shatterpoint and there it was called Vaapad and we also learned that Windu created it. So it doesn't really make sense that it's it KOTOR II.

Sounds like a good idea for later in the game say once the PC has a lightsaber. I think it will be very interesting as to how you find that speacial crystal. I was thinking that it might be some sort of quest the PC will have to go on to find it.

Just as long as you don't go to a cave and kill "force spiders" or whatever to get these crystals. That's one of the only things that I really didn't like about Kotor. Its like, "Hey here's your lightsaber, oh btw theres these caves here where you can get special crystals, I mean that is I've heard there are these caves." :(
