Suuuuuure that's in engine gameplay footage.

And the quotes like: "we don't want the player to know if they're playing or in a cutscene"?

Y-yay?

But honestly, let's look at standard SW bounty hunter equipment: jet packs, grappling hooks, FUCKING SPACESHIPS.

Sure, let's do a cover based corridor shooter. That works.

I was at least hoping that they might have just decided to completely rip off Prey 2.

But at least it's a MACHYUR Star Wars game. I bet you they'll say "FUCK!" a lot. MAAAACCCHHHHYYYUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

They haven't shown off everything yet, so we'll just have to wait and see. It looks spectacular so far the way I see it. If it turned up good I want a Xbox 360 port.

Well, I'll give it this, it certainly doesn't feel like the rest of the Star Wars games I've seen.

You must have missed the part where it was running on a modern high-end PC, not a six- or seven-year-old console; it's entirely possible on current hardware. Either the graphics quality will be reduced considerably for 360/PS3, or it'll be a next-gen release. I'm betting on the latter.

Oh, and here are the raw clips without the big annoying SpikeTV ticker or commentary:

Funny how it seems similar to Mass Effect complete with cover grab kills and similar weapon hudd. Did Lucas Arts not like Bioware doing their games anymore or something ?

Who wants to bet this random Bounty Hunter will be force sensitive and acquire a Lightsaber ?

Incidentally, when is this set... funny feeling its going to be during the actual movies since Bioware have KOTOR era pegged in their MMO ?

On the one hand it might be nice to get a Star Wars Mass Effect... especially if it does start to grow up a bit in gameplay. However, I get the impression this is an underhanded way of trying to kick off their own Mass Effect Shepard style trilogy featuring this fuckwit bounty hunter. Being set on a single set of Coruscant is rather dodgey as well and given the intensive graphics I doubt its going to be that moddable.
The Jedi Knight series could certainly use a sequel and a moddable version would get a pretty good community into the mix as well.

you're probably right about this, And also your "reckless buddy" from the vid is probably going to turn out force sensitive as well just dark side and the two of them is probably going to end the game fighting each other with light sabers..on a volcanic planet..

Gears of Mass Wars? Yes fucking please.

And the irony of complaining about a Star Wars video game taking from previous games is rich. :lol:

Really, who cares if its a cover based corridor shooter? If I wanted to play Gears of War, I would. I don't. I want to shoot blasters. So yes please, give me this game.

Who cares how pretty the nosehairs are rendered if the gameplay is garbage? So far it looks like a bit of Uncharted and a bit of Enslaved from the gameplay, so nothing exactly amazing or mind blowing. Might wind up being pretty mediocre, though I doubt it'll be much worse than TFU2.

You mistake me; Ando was incredulous of it being in-engine, I was merely correcting him. Otherwise, you're absolutely right.

Is it just me or does that footage just not look like star wars? There are a few distinct visual styles that appeared in the movies, and that just doesnt look like any of them. Not battered enough to fit the rebellion, not crisp enough to be the Empire, not smooth enough to be the OR, not alien enough to be, well, alien. The blasters dont sound like blasters, either.'Tom me it really just looks like mass effect.

That impact gimmick with the 1313 logo is going to become a meme. It's just so poorly timed its hilarious.

which kind of says if you're not including light-sabres, the force or tie fighters, you shouldn't be using the STAR WARS title (otherwise it's just a cash-in on a recognizable title).

star wars without it's signature pieces is just a generic shoot-em-up.

Dark Forces didn't include lightsabers, the Force, or TIE Fighters, and it's one of the best Star Wars games of all time.

Pretty sure Dark Forces had GAZZILLIONS of Stormtroopers. Kinda a "signature piece" if you ask me. His opinion stands even if his point is lame.

Plus, fighting Boba Fett, cutscenes with Vader and Jabba and even a brief recycling of ROTJ footage for not-Ackbar, a mission to steal plans to the Death Star. There was plenty of brand aesthetics to the game.

I agree with his opinion, but we've only seen a few minutes of footage from the game. For all we know, Level 1313 could be crawling with stormtroopers and other 'signature pieces'.

Dark Forces... good?

Even at the time it was clunky, ugly crap. But if that's your metric, no wonder SW games sell. :)

Stormtroopers are almost a certainty.
Dosent matter what time period you jump to, they all have their own Stormtroopers / Empire so I fully expect them to include some sort of Anti-Empire agenda at work. Who knows, it will probably end in the player helping the Rebels to capture Coruscant or some equally grandoise shit. Alternatively... they will go straight to grass roots and have the events take place during the movies. Somehow the actions of this bounty hunter had a profound effect on ensuring the Rebels got the plans for the Death Star.

I doubt this is going to be good, the effort they are expending on making it look ultra-awesome. Just highlights how much effort they wont be focusing on making the game have some longevity. I'll take a game that I can play repeatedly vs. a game that looks super awesome and lasts exactly once.

Did not like the look of the game play at all. The Blasters sounded very wimpy, all wrong. As did the blaster bolts, looked more like a phaser shot than a blaster.
