So the other day...

Post by blivvy on Tue Sep 30, 2014 3:23 am

I started replaying JK2 sp and it's still an amazing game. 

God I wish they would make another JK game.

It really is a great game.  I even really enjoyed the JK3 SP to be honest.  My guess is they took the wrong message from the fact that no JK2'er really liked JK3's messed up and random combat in multiplayer.  Instead of thinking "oh, we screwed up the balance", they figured "they don't want another one of these games".   Rolling Eyes

I'm hoping things will circle around though.  Now that they're making games again because of the Disney thing, they'll make some other types of games for a while and hopefully things will come back around to the whole "I want to fight you with a lightsaber!" aspect that's been completely lacking in games since the JK series.

I'd also love to see a new game like Tie Fighter or X-Wing.  Those were so much fun.

If they release a Battlefront for PS3, I may have to grab it!  Battlefront games are pretty awesome too.

I did like the space combat in Battlefront II, but it wasn't quite a Tie Fighter quality simulator.  More arcade style.  It was fun, but I'd really like a new space sim like the classics.

Remember that guy that was working on a JK2 remake?

It's looks like it will be a long time before it's released. It may never even get finished but you never know.

Look at those screenshots though.  Drooling

The updated weapons are looking pretty nice, but I still say the maps just look weird.  Slapping high-res textures onto low-poly modeling just makes it look so flat and boring.  All the straight lines really stand out and look out of place.  I think someone would need to redesign all those maps with much more detail for it to even begin to look good.

Yep, Tie Fighter was the second best lucas arts game behind the dark forces/jk1/MOTS/jk2/jka series. Game was far ahead of its time.

I doubt I would like a remake at this point in time though of the former.

A new jk game would be a waste of time without a better engine in existence which there isn't at least from ID although I heard of a new company working on something interesting a few days ago so I'll try to link.

I remember hearing about this game and from that vid, it looked like it might of been pretty epic. Shame it got cancelled.

Yeah that's a real shame.  I'd want something that would work as a multiplayer experience the way jk2 was though.  Something I could write another awesome mod for and where we could all just hang out again.  Do special stuff for the holidays and whatnot.

Speaking of holidays, the server has been put into Halloween mode.  Zombehz!!!  The zombies tend to attract what few players are left in jk2.  I'll be on the server every now and again over these next couple months because zombehz and turkeys and grinches and santas! cheers
