I heard this game was also coming to the PC, I wonder how it will play there.

Are you lying?

Because if you are, that'd be like stabbing me with tiny daggers. Cruel.

This game is seriously pissing me off when I play. There's so much squandered potential here and it mostly revolves around the saber fighting -- the one thing you absolutely must not screw up in a game where you play a fricking Jedi. Lesson number one, the basic attack has to be effective enough to at least cause the bad guys to stumble while you ramp up to further combos. See: Ninja Gaiden and/or damn near every Japanese brawler ever made. Or God of War.

Lesson two: blocking should be immediate. If I can't break off an attack I initiated to block in response to a new enemy moving in, all you're doing is telling me to run away constantly until I'm in a stronger position. It's BORING. There's no flow at all when you're in the thick of it. None.

I could go on and on. Nothing is more infuriating than wasted potential. It could have been so good.

I can understand hesitance about making enemies stagger, given the small mass of the weapon, but if they're going to model that, they should be certain to incorporate in the model that it's ridiculously quick and terribly destructive. The light saber in this game functions like a club made of Nerf foam. It should be a weapon so quick, elegant, and lethal that it would be a mistake to try and use one without both serious training with it and in the Force.

I've missed that, but they are talking about a possible movie

Good lord why does everything have to become a movie these days? Is Uwe Bol directing?

I'm still waiting for the Bratz Chernobyl movie. (Memorial day, 2012)

For what it's worth, Steam has SW:TFU on sale for $14.99 this weekend. Not a great game, but best price I've seen on any platform so far.

I paid less for my copy of the PS3 version on Amazon a few months ago.

Haven't cracked the cellophane on it yet. It's in my queue of Mediocre Games I Got For Less Than $15 Each With My Christmas money. These include Eat Lead (underrated but with annoying boss battles), Wolverine (ridiculously fun so far) and Star Wars TFU.

If you're willing to accept that not every game has to be Bioshock, you can get a lot of gaming value out there.

Couldn't find a thread for FU2, so I'm putting this here.

Guess who's in the game?
