    Ahh... it's good to be a SW fan and a gamer this year. ;) With [link=http://lucasarts.com/products/galaxies/splash.htm]Star Wars Galaxies[/link] being a big (and now stable!) success for the PC, and [link=http://www.lucasarts.com/products/swkotor/splash.htm]Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic[/link] making it worthwhile to purchase an X-box, the stage has been set for a decent SW gaming experience to at least last for a few months.

    [link=http://lucasarts.com/products/jediacademy/]Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy[/link] will be coming out for the PC in about [link=http://www.gamestop.com]4 days[/link] (at the time of this posting), and [link=http://lucasarts.com/products/rebelstrike/indexFlash.html]Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike[/link] will be coming out for the Gamecube system during the last week of next month.

    This gamer here could not be more excited. :D

    Jedi Academy se ve ridiculamente cool! Oozess with coolness, but as we all know by now, my pc can't run it. Asi que les pido a todos que se unan en oración para que mi campaña para una nueva PC en mi casa tenga resultados. UNA COMPUTADORA NUEVA PARA EL KID Y LOS CLONES AHORA! JUSTICIA TECNOLÓGICA AHORA!

    En cuanto al X-box, espero tener el mio en mi casa este domingo, y KOTOR comprarlo en la semana por internet!!! Mwahahahahaha


    Rebel Strike is on the list as well.

    Luis: you really need to get a new PC. Really. 8-}

    Digital: none of these are coming out for Mac that I know of. But fear not, you can still get some SW action on your Powerbook with [link=http://www.lucasarts.com/products/battlegrounds/splash.htm]Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds[/link] or [link=http://www.lucasarts.com/products/outcast/splash.htm]Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast[/link]. ;)

    Gente todo lo que han oido de KOTOR es cierto.

    Definitivamente vale la pena tener un X-Box aunqeu sea solo por este juego.

    I played the first stage of Rebel Strike for Nintendo Gamecube that's included in the LucasArts [link=http://www.anigaming.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=101]Bonus Disc[/link] (a goodie that you'll receive if you preorder the game), and I must say it's impressive... most impressive. [face_shocked]

    In it you get to play Luke running around the snow both on foot and riding on a Tauntaun, shooting at snowtroopers, AT-STs, and climbing on AT-ATs to destroy them in the classic detonator fashion seen in ESB. The graphics in the demo need to be improved a little, but overall everything looks as good or even better than they did on the previous game. At the end of the stage you get to fly an X-Wing against what is probably the biggest number of TIE Fighters I have even seen in a game before. And not a frame was skipped. Beautiful. The cinema sequences that precede the stage are also of pretty good quality, and the audio is obviously near-perfect ear-candy.

    All of you out there should really check it out. Those who own a Gamecube must get this game, and I recommend to those who don't that they get buy one now! 8-}

    P.S. - Stay tuned for a Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy review. ;)

    ¿Vale la pena comprar Jedi Academy? Mi PC no tiene el muscle pa jugarlo anyway. Vi un review en GameSpy no muy favorable, so me pregunto si valdra la pena rentarlo pa'l Xbox cuando salga.

    Saludos Darth_Invidious,

    Yo personalmente a veces encuentro que los reviews de GameSpy no son tan confiables. Chequeate este [link=http://www.anigaming.com/modules.php?name=AGReviews&op=review&isid=68&rid=48]otro review[/link]. Si no estas seguro de que tu PC lo pueda correr decentemente te recomiendo entonces que esperes por la version de Xbox. Lo bueno de la version en PC es que es mas facil jugarlo multiplayer en un LAN. Pero si, el juego esta bastante bueno. Definitivamente vale la pena para por lo menos un alquiler.

    Suerte!

    Bueno, ayer llegó Rebel Strike! Solo he visto las primeras 3 tablas y el Training, y todavia no he jugado el cooperative campaign (el cual se ve increible), pero lo que he visto hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. Los que jugaron el demo se pueden haber dado cuenta que las partes "third-person" (en donde controlas a un personaje - Luke en el demo - y corres por ahi disparando) no son tan buenas. Pues afortunadamente, para la version final lograron mejorar un poco el control en las partes "third-person". Todavia sigue siendo medio "awkward", pero no esta tan mal como yo esperaba. Obviamente en donde el juego se gana sus meritos es en las partes de los "flight missions".

    Ah, y sorprendentemente las voces estan bastante buenas, con algunas excepciones como la de El Emperador, la cual suena bien cafre. La mejor voz que suena es la de Vader, parece como si fuera el mismo James Earl Jones! :D

    Si tienes un Gamecube, tienes que conseguirte este juego! Si no, la consola esta en $99 (nueva). ;)

    Rebel Strike ownz! I don't want to spoil anything for anyone, but the other day I was playing through Wedge's campaign and I got to pilot some Imperial vehicles I have always wanted to pilot but had never had the chance to do so. Think big, four-legged walking behemoths. :D Kick ass!

    Those of you who have it (*ahem*KidBoricua*ahem*) should definitely try advancing on to the later stages. ;)

    And now it's good to be a Lord of the Rings fan and a gamer!

    (This is a certified SPOILER FREE message)

    I got Return of the King for Gamecube, and after an initial stream of second thoughts had subsided, I've been playing it to death. I was reluctant to play it at first for fear it would reveal spoilers as to what happens in the as-of-today unreleased third film in the LOTR trilogy.

    Fortunately I have good news for you all. The spoilers in the game are so minuscule that you won't even notice them in some cases. And most of the movie sequences and soundtracks are taken from The Two Towers movie, which I am sure all of you out there have seen. ;)

    Here's an example: You are about to play through Stage X. You begin to play Stage X and you find yourself fighting through some kind of forest. Great, so instead of fighting through the woods of Lothlorien you are fighting through location X, which is also a forest. So the only spoiler here is the name of the actual place, X, since it pretty much looks exactly like other forests we've seen before. And to make things even better, when you are thrown at Stage X you find yourself too busy killing stuff to notice any spoilers that may be around.

    So yeah, the game rocks. And the Coop-Campaign is extremely cool. I seriously recommend you pick this one up, even if its a rental. Button-mashing LOTR action is back in da house! :D

    Hey, you've come to the right place for advice. 8-}

    Both systems have their good points and their bad points. But it all comes down to this: software library (A.K.A. games). So it all depends on how many games are actually out there that you like, and how many games are going to come out for a specific console that you like.

    In my case, I prefer the Gamecube because it has more games that I like. The games that are out exclusively for Gamecube, like the Zelda and Metroid series for example, are what I really like. And the Rogue Squadron series is a must-have for Star Wars fans. Also, the Gamecube has the best "party games" of all consoles, in my opinion.

    On the other hand, if you like Sports games and other competitive games (like first-person shooters and such) and have a decent Internet connection, you might want to consider getting an X-box instead. The X-box also has some decent PC-game ports, for those who can't afford a full-fledged gaming PC. It all depends on your current (and future) game needs. So my advice is, start doing some research and find out about what games you really like and which console has them. :D

    O haz lo que yo hice y compra los dos! :D
    En verdad que con los precios de ahora (GC 99.99 y X-Box a 150) no esta mal.


    Te digo que aunque es el último que tengo, el X-Box me gusta más que mi GC y mi PS2.

    KOTOR es sin duda el mejor juego de SW que he jugado, y de los mejores que he jugado en toda mi vida, diría que segundo después de Ocarina of Time.

    Pero Rogue Squadron vale la pena.

    BTW Jan, el sábado le metí duro a Rogue Squadron, y ya llegué a la tabla de Wedge y el walker...sweet!
