If you think the SE Edition is bad, play SWG. The stuff SOE puts in sometimes makes me think if they've watched any of the movies at all.

The thing that is annoying me most in SWG is that so many people choose melee for PVP because you can make people dizzy and knock them down and cause 10 times more damage faster than the standard blaster (Uh, Laser? cuts through diamonds..)
This is A: Not at all Star Wars and B: Annoying for us Ranged Professions to play any form of PVP because a Teras Kasaii Master clad in Identikit Composite armour would knock us down before we get a shot in.

Glad to hear on the message board that by the end of the Month they will fix this in the upcoming updates. I can't wait to set people alight with my Flamethrower.

Bump!

Holy shit, I never noticed this in ROTJ!

Very interesting...apparently for a few frames in the movie we can see Vader's skeleton as he's being shocked by the Emperor. Not only that but this link also tells us the extreme extent of his injuries before and after that final incident.

I had always noticed the skeleton flashing through, but yeah, never realised the detail in it. That's quite impressive actually, I'd believe they made a Vader skeleton model to work the shots off, so I wonder if they kept it. That, and given the theories presented about his skeleton, it'll be interesting how much RotS will follow this.

I'm also wondering how they will deal with Anakin becoming Vader. I know a lot of people are worried that it'll be made very clear, thus utterly ruining the surprise in ESB for those who haven't watched it before; it is a classic moment of cinema afterall. I am worried too, but I think (hope) George will handle it differently. Why I think this is (apart from hoping he's still got a pinch of sense left in him) is considering the rewritten scene between Vader and Palpatine in the DVD version. It's supposed to reflect more of the prequels, but is still obscure as to not make it absolutely obvious that Vader is Luke's father. I mean, imagining someone who hasn't seen Star Wars ever before, they'll still think when Vader is so shocked when Palpatine tells him the Death Star killer is the son of Anakin Skywalker, they'll think it's because he killed Anakin Skywalker and is affraid that his son has come back to avenge him.
That's what I hope anyway. The Prequels may not actually be much on their own, but I think they're gonna serve up the original trilogy in even greater light.

I haven't watched ROTJ in ages. I could have seen it last night but my crappy DVD player Software oddly enough made everyones voices quiet and the music loud I couldn't watch it. I couldn't be bothered to spend ages buggering around with the settings too. My pasty was getting cold. I played Civ III instead. Anywho, that little detail alone adds to the best bit in the classics.

That article was interesting, make sure you read about the Endor Holocaust and the other stuff there.

My copy of CivIII was stolen  frown

Star Wars Technical Commentaries? Been there many a time (not noticed the Vader thing though - must have been a post DVD thing)
It's some good stuff, and presented in a manner not too alienating. So only a small part of it flies right over my head.  wink
I have to question the Endor Holocaust. Yes it's probably true, but I wonder how much fun he had as he thought about it alll  tongue

Ive got to admit this certainly looks pretty damn cool, however odd Yoda looks in it.

Cant wait to see this poster in the cinema though, should look really something.

Plus new trailer tommorow for Hyperspace members on the official site, rich bastards...

Okay, but it would be a gamble on my part, it is illegal to do so. Those brave souls at theforce.net's message board gave their memberships to provide us links. Many nerds died to give me this trailer.

Give me your aim name, and I can give it to you there.

EDIT: NVM, mine's "guilt33Sparx" trailer files for everyone!

Maybe...

Also, I wouldn't worry about Lucasfilm eating us. There's a lot of forums out there, and they don't have time to check them all. Poor bastards. But then I think of their Hyperspace scam, and I don't feel so bad for them.

Lucasfilm is crazy to make everyone pay for a promotional tool. It's ludicrous how lucasfilm treats it's fansites. LOTR's fansite's webmasters and staff got invited to premiers and shit, LFL barely tollerates us.

Episode 1 isn't that bad, he just tried way too hard to contrast with the OT. He went over the top with Jar Jar and the kiddie feel of the movie. Revenge of the sith will be a full 180 degrees from TPM.

From what we've seen in the trailers, it has to be true. In the trailer alone, Anakin and Palpatine are responsible for at least five deaths! That's about as many non-droid casualties as there were in TPM alone.

Grevious is the leader of the droid army, and the military commander of the Seperatists. He's also a bad-ass Jedi-killer.

He and Obi-Wan have a big fight at some point in the film.

General Grevious is the Commander of the droid army of the Confedercy of independant systems.

He was once an honorable general from an obscure planet of strife, after ending a war eons in the making, the Seperatists planned a shuttle "accident" that shattered his body. They pretended to ask him permission to put him in a droid body( they would have done anyways had he not said yes) while fitting him in Cybernetic enhancements (courtesy of the Techno union representative Wat Tamboar) they gave him a ruthless urge to kill and modified memory to make him believe he was always a cold blooded killer. Over the course of four years, Count Dooku trained him in lightsaber technique and programed his personal body guards with the same talents. With his artificially accelerated reflexes he mastered a lightsaber without Force affinity.
(Spoilers)
Right before ROTS, General Grevious led a daring assualt on Coruscant, to capture Chancellor Palpatine. He battled the likes of Jedi Masters Kit Fisto and Mace Windu to finally take him into custody. He is oblivous however to the fact that Palps is actually Darth Sidious, he often wonders why he could not simply kill Palpatine. Had he ever given in to the urge to kill him, Palps would have killed him in minutes.

So how many Lightsabre duals will we see in this one?

Will it break the Record Held in clones?

We know the following:
Obi Wan and Anakin will dual Dooku.
Obi Wan and Anakin will dual each other.
Obi wan will duel Grievious.
Palpatine will dual Yoda.
Palpatine will dual Mace and 3 other Jedi (And win).

That's going to be a lot of Lightsabre action...

There's a tiny little duel between stunt coordinator and duelist Nick Gillard playing Legendary Jedi Master "Cin Drallig" a play on his name. Also involved in the duel is Rick Mcallum's daughter, Mousy Mcallum.
 


Palpatine did not win against Mace, he was losing until a pivotal moment of not only the fight, but the entire saga.

He went whacko long before that.  Greedo shooting first in the Special Edition was proof enough.

"My feeling is it will probably be a big PG-13, so it will be the first 'Star Wars' that's a PG-13. I would take a 9- or a 10-year-old to it -- or an 11-. But I don't think I would take a 5- or 6-year-old to this. It's way too strong. I could pull it back a little bit, but I don't really want to"

The newest trailer has now been released to the public for those who haven't seen it on http://www.starwars.com.  You need not be a member of Hyperspace. It looks pretty boss, I'm actually looking foreward to this one again now. The story probably one be as good as OT, but it looks to have some of the best fight scenes ever.
