I'm just waiting for one of the storm troopers to yell "OMG! H4X!!". I mean, those Jedis were just abusing the poor guys. It's like watching two guys play Monkey-in-the-middle with the neighbor's cat.

This almost makes me want to boot into Windows and watch this video.

Yes, that would be less trouble than getting Flash working on my Linux system.

Re: "NextGen" Starwars game?
then you need to switch distros desc - getting flash working on firefox in fedora is ez as pie


and those good jedi are acting rather bad.. did i miss it somewhere that the jedi managed to balance control of the entire force instead of just a "Good side" vs "Dark Side" dichotomy?

For once , I agree with Kazan, the world must becoming to an end. :p

But yeah, what I was thinking, the jedi everyone has seen in the movies only did what was needed, not beat a dude senseless and then throw him off a cliff from kicks. Allthough it is funny to see.

Hang on - the force lightning (aka the Kentuky Fried Chicken power) is a dark force power, yet he was fighting imperial troops...

I did it in ~5 seconds in Kanotix

 
Re: "NextGen" Starwars game?
Meh, if they're making a game set in the Trilogies, giving them this much power doesn't make any sense.

Looks pretty good, but only about expected levels for next-gen.  Anything less on a 360 would be sad frankly.

The sad part is that it's probably CG.

I wouldn't expect anything of that quality from lucasarts, at least at this point in time. Now if it were Bioware, or Bungie, or Valve...

Two things. First, Flash not working in Opera is a good thing for 99.9% of the time. Second, the day I install Fedora, Red Hat or similar on this machine will be the day Satan buys antifreeze for his snowplow.  :D

Or, one of the theoretically 'open ended' Jedi Knight style stories where being good or bad equates to which force power you funnel XP into......
