    The battle against the big spider looked like a quicktime event without button prompts.

    Jedi Souls with less difficulty would sell a gazillion copies, let's be honest.

    Star Wars 1313 looked so much cooler than Baby Souls.

    If Uncharted's beta-male brother fucked Miyazaki's stillborn first crack at Dark Souls and in 2013 they had an ugly baby.

    It's like Jedi Academy, but weirdly slow. Like they really want it to be Dark Souls maybe (to me it almost looks like Witcher 3, especially when fighting those spiders.) ? But why? And it takes more than three lightsaber hits to kill some guy?
    It's SO ODD how he stands around and waits for stormtroopers to come to him.
    And the finishers, very meh. JA felt agile and system driven, like you could invent your own cool ways of hacking up storm troopers.
    This just looks so stiff and linear.

    It will end up as one those games that you finish once and enjoy it, but then you uninstall it and completely forget about.

    The levels don't look very open, it all played extremely linear in the demo.

    I deleted that because I was going off what I read, haven't had time to watch it yet. The quick preview summaries I've looked at all say Metroid though. How "open world" a Metroid type game is is open to debate I guess, but I wouldn't call it linear. Who knows how accurate those previews are though, or how representative the footage is.

    Banal modern aaa squeeze through pipes see cutscene linear button prompter. Guess it was naive expecting anything different.

    It's just for the E3 demo, so that the journalists don't get lost

    Dark Souls is such an odd inspiration for a Jedi game. Dark Souls is deliberate and slow - it's about waiting for an opening and exploiting it.

    Looks marginally better than The Force Unleashed.

    So is this canon?
    When does it takes place episode-wise?
    How is there another (this time a fucking kid) force user with Luke lvl of Jedi powers just because?
    Also that animation of main character LOLz its just terrible he looks so wooden while walking and graphics are shit.

    That's even a step down from the Lego versions in terms of gameplay. They didn't have this console climbing stuff. You just walked and jumped where you pointed to. You know, like in the old days? :outrage:

    Like all Star Wars media now it's canon until someday they decide again it isn't. I doubt anything but the movies or shows is ever really important though. This one is set between prequels and originals, before Rogue One.

    Finally watched the gameplay video. Basically looks like Force Unleashed again but with somewhat Dark Souls inspired combat. Not really my genre but I like Star Wars enough to play it anyway probably.

    Well its EA we are talking about, they just looked and thought "those Dank Solds seem pretty popular with the kids these days, lets copy that" ... because nobody thought of doing that *cough*Lordsofthefallen*cough*.

    But its not about being slow for me thats the problem, the problem is how small the player is compared with the enemies were in Souls games you cannot lower your guard, there is a sense of being small and having to fight tooth and nail until you git gud (memorized their patterns) and even then you can still be fucked up the ass, doesnt work on a Jedi game because Jedi are NOT supposed to be small and powerless but rather they are incredible power fighters that you need a army to take down, you can speed up Souls games as Sekiro and Bloodborne are much faster or at least more aggressive games but still your character in those games doesnt feel like a Jedi should do.

    A Souls games doesnt work for Jedi simply because of the relative power of your character, with a Jedi you need to wear him down and kill him throwing even walkers at then because they are simply THAT powerful, without that sense of relative power its not a Souls-like game and a game were the Jedi will struggle against every enemy is simply wrong, thats not a Jedi.

    Every stormtrooper died from one hit, except the purple boss characters, who have the same role as the dark jedi from Jedi Knight. So they have more hit points.

    The Respawn guy said that the combat system is somewhat free-form, so you have to do your own combat moves, it is not scripted animations.
