Like you'll be able to hear it anyway over the sound coming out of your mouth :rolleyes:

I was implying that, as a geek, you'd be making the WOOSHes and BZZTs with your mouth anyway. Geez, no wonder the Sith (Draven - pre-explained) died out... ;)

Okay. That's what I thought you meant, but I guess it just fell flat. :lol:

I thought he meant you would be giggling/squeeling like a little school girl while playing...

Well, that too...

Lucasarts' page for The Force Unleashed has gone live. . .

Sounds good in concept, hope they don't F it up.

One of the funniest things I've read in a long time.

Looks cool. I wouldn't mind seeing a new Star Wars: battlefront game on the 360.

DthRdrX 02-17-07 03:53 PM

Thinking about it,

Palpatine stated in EP3 that "soon he would have a new apprentice". So even Palps kept the rule of two going until Dooku was dead. I suppose Vader did try and break the rule by recruiting Luke in EP5 before Palps was dead so this plot wouldn't be much different for him.

Sidious would see this coming a mile away so I can't wait to see how they construct this plot.

But Vader was looking to take Luke on as an apprentice and kill Sidious...

Vader also trained Lumiya somewhat I believe (not as a true apprentice), but as one of the Emperor's Hand. (Which some believe that the Emperor's Hand indicated that Sidious was getting close to turning away from the Rule of Two.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_Two

"Vader proposed to his son, Luke Skywalker, that they kill the Emperor together; Luke would then have become Vader's apprentice, preserving the Rule of Two. Palpatine also hoped for Luke to kill Vader and become his own apprentice."

No Lightsaber Wii Game Just Yet
Doesn't it mean it won't happen, though. Remain calm.

By Patrick Klepek, 02/19/2007


Controlling a Jedi lightsaber seems just about the most natural concept for the Wiimote, yet LucasArts hasn't said a thing about it yet. What's the deal? Then, they go and reveal Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and don't even bother to announce a Wii version.

In the Game Informer cover story, says TheForce.Net, LucasArts is asked what's up with Wii, and while they leave the door open to a port, they dash hopes that it's the widely speculated lightsaber game. "...even if that version does happen, it probably wouldn't be 'the lightsaber game' that gamers have eagerly been awaiting," said the rep.

kudos. Lucasarts.

What the hell are you thinking?

pinata242 02-20-07 12:09 PM

I just take this to mean that Force Unleashed is not, and will not be, the Wii-controller-as-a-lightsaber game we're all anticipating. They're just saying that FU (haha!) may be ported to the Wii later, but won't be revamped to control in that way. We all know they're already working on a proof-of-concept for the game we want.

Supermallet 02-20-07 01:35 PM

Agreed. I'm excited about this game and about the upcoming Wii one.

Matt 03-09-07 02:22 PM

The Force Unleashed has been delayed until Spring 2008.

Michael Corvin 03-09-07 02:43 PM

I didn't think it was even planned for this year. :shrug:

I think Lucasland probably thought otherwise; they were planning an all-out multi-media marketing blitz this fall focusing around this game.

taffer 03-09-07 07:41 PM

Well, I am glad that Lucasarts is taking their time this time instead of rushing it out for the Christmas shopping season like they did with KOTOR 2.

Force Unleashed coming to the Wii

Previously, Lucasarts said there would be no Wii version. Everyone that wanted some wiimote lightsaber action can now rejoice.

Money talks. I'm glad Wii's sales have been noticed...

No Hoth level = no sale.
