SHEEV ROLL CONFIRMED
SHEEV ROLL CONFIRMED
SHEEV ROLL CONFIRMED
Alright anons, who of you is a character animator at DICE?
Now we just need Obi-wan with a passive high ground buff to confirm that someone at DiCE is a big guy.
What other game let me commit acts of treason?
Im pretty sure that's same witwer, he's been in force unleased 1-2, the clone wars (maul and sheev) and a few other star wars related things. Fuck, nothing against him but, who is he blowing to keep voicing these characters? he's pretty shit.
better yet, who works at shader management. LOOK AT THIS
>I will show you the true power...
>of the force
who is writing these fucking lines? Nothing can stop my lightsaber? how are they fucking up the simplest of one-liners from iconic characters?
Yeah that lightning had zero oomph behind it. It just shot out a single bolt for less than a second that somehow instantly killed several guys. No giant wide cone of lightning, no lightning hit effects on the targets; the whole thing was just flat.
I am still immensely popular in the Republic. My friend thinks its not surprising when you think of all the good I did for the Republic's people during the short time I was in power. It seems all the stories we heard about the Jedi Temple were true. But the only people in there were Jedi, and political supporters. Well, the political supporters were fools, and we both agreed that the Jedi should be exterminated.
>flamethrow hits shield
>shield getting hit by blaster bolts effect
>flamethrower hits charecter
What the fuck really? I mean come on. This is what I try to explain to people about EA. They don't even fucking try anymore.
This made me chuckle.
>got Temuera Morrison to do Boba Fett
>there are people actually complaining about this
Why? it's fucking fantastic. It's totally Palpatine, he's fucking nuts and i've got to give it to the team to have the balls to put it into the game, his voice isn't great but it's better than his Battlefront 2 voice so that's something and the lightning looks piss weak but the twirl is 10/10.
>NOTHING CAN STOP MY LIGHTSABER
>YOUR WEAPONS ARE TOYS TO ME
Who writes this shit?
Since these threads always have a ton of SW nerds
Can you explain the Sith eyes to me?
Why do they change?
Why did Palpatine need to get burnt to change his when Anakin had it just cause angry and emo?
>it's better than his Battlefront 2 voice
are you kidding me m8? The line where he says "I am here and I AM NOT AMUSED" is fucking golden and sounds way more menacing than both darth vader and the sheev in this battlefront.
>implying you wouldn't add in minor gripes just to try to sound like a regular person rather than a robot
>implying you aren't a shill trying to fit in here
How much do they pay you?
>Can you explain the Sith eyes to me?
The Dark Side is like meth and fucks your face up with repeated usage.
>Why did Palpatine need to get burnt to change his when Anakin had it just cause angry and emo?
He's a wizard and could just glamour himself to look normal, but then he overdosed on Dark Side magic
so why did they not just use sound clips from the movie or have one of the numerous sound alikes used for the shows to voice the characters? This sounds like they got some guy working at Dice LA to voice him and vader.
Also whoever wrote their dialogue should be killed, the heroes sound like shit and so do the troopers, where the fuck is the distortion from their helmets
Because one of the best practices to make a lot of money is to make games on extremely low budgets, and all the things you said would raise that budget.
Enjoy corporate vidya 2015.
because they wanted you to have an authentic experience which means, don't watch the movies and just go to the locations and look at props and just cobble together a game. Listen to the fucking soldiers do they sound anything like storm troopers to you? Remeber the time luke had to run out into the middle of hoth to get his snow speeder token?
>that fucking voice
>that PS1-tier lightning
>that hobbling grandpa midget animation
Why would EA even release this footage?
Don't worry senpaitachi, the voice has already been fixed
>dat shit voice acting
>doesn't even remark upon treason
I said the voice is an improvement over Battlefront 2 and while the animation is shit, it's a laugh. Stop taking everything so fucking seriously this is Star Wars, joke of the movie industry.
Sure the content is better in Battlefront 2 but the voice itself was so fucking bad.
>implying you're not the shill trying to deflect attention onto me so you can keep posting with zero suspicions
You won't fool me EA
A lot of aliens in Star Wars are hot.
>Did you ever hear the tragedy of Moot the Wise?
>I thought not. It's not a story the Redditors would tell you. It's a 4chan legend. Moot was a webmaster, so powerful and so wise, he could use the internet to influence the anons to create...memes. He had such a knowledge of 4chan, he could even keep the memes he cared about...from dying.
>He could actually...save memes from death?
>4chan is a pathway to many memes some consider to be unnatural.
>What happened to him?
>He became so powerful, the only thing he was afraid of was...losing his power, which eventually of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his girlfriend everything he knew, then his girlfriend Keked him in his sleep. Ironic...he could save memes from death, but not his relationship.
>Is it possible to learn this power?
>Not from a Redditor.
One of my characters in TOR
Because it's actually a decent game right now. Many different stories with some really good ones(depending on class you go), good enough combat, looks and sounds fine, people on the server I am on are friendly and very nice. Can really customize your own apartments and houses you buy, galactic starfighter ship pvp.. and so on
It's definitely a better WoW/FFXIV to me right now
I invite you to give it a try, it's free. You can easily play through the starter planet and do the first solo flashpoint and see if you're interested in going on
>The Emperor being called Sheev and his spin launched him into the Hall of Memes of /tv/, up there with Bane and CIA.
But that was like a decade ago.
Why did he just start becoming a meme now?
>Dialogue options are pretty good
>Payment in kisses
Come on now.
I actually think TOR is a great single player experience that's worth dropping a sub fee on for a month and playing through a class story or two. But only for Star Wars fans and only if you sub.
yeah, since they buffed the xp you get for class story quests massively you can do that just fine
you might want to become at least preferred eventually but I guess it's doable completely f2p
There's a roundabout way to download it without Origin, but it's possible. Also you need to make sure you don't use the awful streaming download by changing a file.
Yes, but it's true suffering with you being reminded of how much of a cash shop game it is every 5 seconds.
As I said, the game has pretty much no endgame and all the mutliplayer content is mediocre at best, but if you love some Star Wars I'd say just sub once and play as much as you can. Most of the stories start of great and then become ass past act 1, but a few like Sith Warrior, Jedi Knight and Imperial Agent are great the whole way through.
The bait was there, took you long enough slavy-mcshit. Why do your run off? You are already wearing a track suit you fuck wit.
I tried it a while back. I think it's better now, at least should be way better.
Yeah, I feel you. I had fun playing the emu a while back but it just missed that magic. It will never be the same again. Never like that feeling when you started playing.
>paying for another race
>playing swtor at all
Man, the lightsaber fights were so much better in the originals than the prequels
apart from the Obi-Wan/Vader fight. They actually choreographed them so you could tell what the fuck is going on, whereas all the prequel fights were just
>There is a good guy (or multiple good guys) and a bad guy
>They are both trying to kill each other
>Eventually, one of them wins
It's amazing how much less they managed to do with far better choreography.
Anyone else pissed that they always try to portray the Empire as the unquestionably evil bad guys in the movies? When often times they're actually better than the Republic in many regards.
Even if the Obi-wan/Vader fight looks rather bad, probaly because of the editing just to make it more fast paced, it's still more interesting emotionally and in context than most prequel fights, the wise wizard fights against the bad guy that killed the protagonist's father, there's a lot at stake here, unlike the prequels which is just
>3 guys fight because Sith are evil, ooooo
>3 guys fight because....? Oh, Anakin lost a hand.
>3 guys fight again and....? Oh, Anakin just murdered him
Only the final Anakin/ObiWan part has something going on, same for the Yoda/Sheev fight, but it's still waaaay too long
>all that work as a character he's clearly bad at
Lucas likes giving new names to things whenever he feels like it. He renamed the planet Korriban to Moraband because he thought it sounded better, even though the planet had been used in multiple games and other media prior to his sudden change.
She may be a shit character but fuck she is hot.
>Only the final Anakin/ObiWan part has something going on
I'm not really talking in the establishment of the fight, I'm talking about how the action itself played out. If you show someone the clips from each of the movies without any context whatsoever and with all dialogue removed, you would barely get anything out of the prequel fights compared to the originals.
>A new hope: couple of guys exchange a couple of fairly tame blows, the guy with the blue lightsaber gives up for some reason
Not much, but it's something I guess.
>Empire: Vader is obviously just toying with Luke and is far more capable in the art of fucking up another dude with a lightsaber. The fight is pretty one sided but Luke persists anyway. He is defeated, but throws himself to his death to avoid capture.
Much better. Tells a lot just through the way two characters are fighting.
>RoTJ: Vader is baiting Luke, who evidently does not want to fight. Eventually, Luke fucking snaps and goes apeshit on his father, managing to win the battle. Despite this, he still refuses to kill Vader.
Again, the way the characters (mostly Luke) fight tells a lot of what's going on. Without context, you can easily understand it. With context, it's an extremely powerful moment, and the climax of Luke's emotional journey.
In the prequel trilogy, the dynamic is always opponents trying to kill the opposition. And frankly, that's just boring. For evenly matched opponents, it would probably be more exciting if they just sat down and played Russian Roulette, which would at least have some tension to it. As it is, all the fights are just people cross lightsabers for a few minutes until one of them randomly wins or one of them runs away. And frankly, that's just boring.
>all that green screen spilling out on Padme's outline
Fuck, watching the prequels in HD is so fucking hilarious, there's this one scene where Yoda talks, and there's literally a hole in his head that keeps blinking
It almost seems like it would have been easier to just build a metal platform in a desert somewhere and shoot her running onto it with a couple of dudes in plastic costume following her. Plus it would look more realistic and you wouldn't even need to bother lighting it, because the sun does that for you!
I'm honestly perplexed about the amount of CG George likes to use. It just makes the films look terrible.
You're not saying it outloud, you're typing.
This is one of the only places where you can talk in great detail about glorious Hershlag without being looked at like a freak, don't restrict yourself
Wow that's disappointing. She looked a lot better when I was a teenager. That outfit, slashed midriff included, would look infinitely hotter on someone with a better body. 2/10 wouldn't bang.
The fight shows more than that, because its still fairly obvious that Luke would never beat his father in a lightsaber duel. We see Luke both succumbing temporarily to the dark side and also Anakin having second thoughts and hesitating constantly.
Remember Anakin is no jok, the legit greatest lightsaber master in the galaxy at this point(Palp never needed to be great at it, his power is strong enough). Luke is just a kid who picked up a glow stick and swung it around a few times.
Both Luke losing and winning the fight are entirely dependent on Vader and his conditions.
First wanting to test and goad his son, and then in not wanting to kill him and save him.
>mfw everything is proceeding as I have foreseen
So was there ever a "Good" Sith Lord. I'm talking a guy who uses the Dark Side of the Force to actually help people instead of just wanton murder for shits and giggles while acting pure evil? We're not talking about games here either since Kyle Katarn can use both light and dark side if he wants, and I believe in KOTOR you could do the same.
Some Jedi have learned and practiced force powers that are considered Dark in nature. From what I remember Grey Jedi take teachings of both the light and dark side of the force. With the new EU in place there has never been a Sith Lord with good intentions other then the bit of Anakin wanting to save padme by embracing the dark side of the force to save her.
There is an entire sect who believes the force is just that, a force. There is no dark or good side and both are tools to be used, not dogmas to serve.
As far as actual Sith Lords?
Yes and No. "good" is super subjective. There were sith lords who worked for the betterment of their culture and empire(remember the sith was an empire). Most evil sith lords were not like mad cackling evil. They were just direct opposites of the "good guys" in means and action.
I think the choreography could still be better in the original series, it just looks a little amateur and clumsy. Though some of that clumsiness might be due to the fact Mark Hammil is lifting a huge fucking lightbulb and not a small CGI accessory like in the prequels.
The original series fights were like an old Kurosawa samurai fight. The prequels takes it's inspiration from anime.
Sheevposting is the best thing since 2013-14 Baneposting.
Daily reminder that the Obi-Wan Vader fight wasn't supposed to be charged combat between two fighters trying to kill or be killed, but actually had context and was tentative for a reason
>certain point of view
From his point of view, the Jedi are dumb.
/v/ has disappointed me numerous times before, but not as much as in the present with the shameless and visceral attack on Star Wars Battlefront. Why on earth need a bunch of alienated, nihlistic young adults with social maladjustment spend their short, numbered days attacking a video game that fails to live up to their arbitrary standards? Good or not, the ideal game /v/ imagines is unattainable. These people spend their time bemoaning the lack of polish and features to a game that nonetheless be accepted and enjoyed by the vast majority, and push for features that will only be found in their imaginary ideal game. Most of the hairs split by these posters are indeed confined to the realm of fantasy. They see themselves as the arbiter of taste in the medium yet have no experience or qualifications in creating content to justify their insatiable thirst for perfection. Their very bodies tremble at the thought that normal people such as you or I may find fun in something they deem to be so disingenuous and flawed in its nature. What you or I see in good, valuable content to them appears twisted and distorted. Ultimately the posters who so viciously attack games made by passionate people in the industry are channeling their own frustrations at never being given the chance to create the game that lives up to their impossible standards. This, and this alone, is the true reason that /v/ has continued to be a source of insecure, disagreeable young 'gamers', a term I use loosely for these people, in their hatred, have lost the true spirit of what it means to be a gamer in the end....
People keep forgetting about the fact that Obi-Wan literally turned into force spirit molecules or whatever when Vader hit him. Even Vader was surprised.
too bad most of the features these "insecure" gaymers wanted weren't even impossible feats of technical genius to begin with
No server browser is proof that EA just wants you to buy the next game.
The enemy doesnt even TRY to aim at Sheev
The fucking EMPEROR just runs in the middle of a god damn battlefield. What's stopping one fucking rebel scum to jost shoot his ass while he's doing his trademark Treason Spin (tm) ?
This is a goog point. Didn't the jedi believe the sith were all gone?
>it's actually a decent game right now. Many different stories with some really good ones(depending on class you go), good enough combat, looks and sounds fine
You underestimate the power of that trick. It puts Sheev at a tactical advantage, as not only does he employ spinning but he moves to gain (albeit only slightly) higher ground.
It's not that they aren't trying to aim at Sheev, it's that they CAN'T aim at Sheev.
The voices in this game are pretty terrible. Did they even use professionals, or is it just the devs dicking around doing their best Star Wars impressions?
but I thought that spinning was the ultimate Sith trick?
Nope. They're Stormtroopers with a paint job.
jesus fucking christ
could lucas not have put real pillars and carpets on a set? They definitely had the space to make a set of roughly the same size in this pic and it would look infinitely better.
why the fuck was lucas so obsessed with cgi?
Why aren't we getting prequel levels?
prequels have droids, they can use the same models for troopers with a helmet change, more planets, and more heroes
Oh wait I forgot hating anything before IV is the cool thing and it would take work to put in more levels and factions
I smell a forced meme
>shit threads about sheev on /v/ for the past week
>muh spin move
>suddenly an official video that only lasts 15 seconds shows up muh epic twirl
Sweet meme EA, too bad your game sucks and everyone's already bored of it.
I never used to notice flaws in CG when I was a kid, but I can't help but notice them when watching movies these days.
Props will always be superior to me. The death star part in a new hope is still my favorite part to this day.
>people in this thread don't like it
>people on v don't like memes
Holy shit why even go
V is confirmed for the worst board holy fuck, bunch of shitty square fucks with sticks so far up their asses they can't enjoy the only good things to come out of 4chan
He was lazy. Someone post that .webm where he says he wants to use a CGI Dooku for the yoda fight so he could just sit in one place and film.
>implying the new Star Wars isn't literally going to be a baby movie like Phantom Menace was, perhaps even dumber.
>all merchandizing has been exclusively baby shit for the past year
Luke, did I ever tell you about the time your father choked your mother within an inch of her life? He was a good friend.
>this guy is an absolute madman
Luke, did I ever tell you when your father tried spinning? That was a good trick.
What do you guys think was the worst Star Wars prequel? For me it's definitely Attack of the Clones . I remember watching it on TV when I was younger, and it just dragged on and on with weird space politics and "I DON'T LIKE SAND!".
>your job is literally FX
>Fatass comes in and does >>315567720
>basically all your hard work is going to be done by some flunky with shit 3D skills while you sit on the side lines making 0 money
nah they're happy CG was brought in I mean fuck working right?
Don't know about Maul, but I got this one.
Luke, did I ever tell you about how your father is a backstabbing traitor who almost committed genocide against my religious order, even though we saved him from a lifetime of slavery to a flying blue alien?
Your father hated sand. So I took you to the sandiest place in the galaxy.
Luke, did I ever tell you about the time your father killed like 20 kids?
He was a good man.
from a certain point of view obi didn't lie
>they were good friends in the clone wars
the movies not so much because lel pacing gotta rush to make Ani evil
>spinning helped him fly around the enemies
he really was a "good" pilot
>If you got an argument that isn't a reaction image, I'd like to hear it.
No you don't. Why lie? You just want to feel superior while shilling for a fuckawful game on /v/. If you have an argument that's not just lying about the game....well you probably don't.
Because it's actually an awful game right now. Almost all the stories, save for the Imperial Agent are outright garbage (depending on class you go), laughably bad combat, looks and sounds terrible especially for a modern MMO, people still left playing it are BR F2P shitters and deluded Star Wars fans who can't let go and settle for, PVP is a complete joke, and so on
It's definitely a worse game than FFXIV/Wow for anyone with a brain still playing theme park most.
You actually do like arguing with 'children' on /v/, because you're are a juvenile shitstain clinging onto another terrible MMO. Go ahead and reply to this with another weak attempt at a one up to protect your bruised ego and keep defending a shit tier Star Wars game
People don't realize all 6 of the movies are equally shit with the exception of 2 being the worst by far. Older star wars fans just think they're surperior for liking an older just as shitty movie.
FROM MY POINT OF VIEW ANAKIN WAS EVIL
>tfw Grevious was way more badass in the cartoon show he first appeared in than his big film appearance
If you haven't already, watch the 2003 Clone Wars show. It's actually a better Star Wars prequel than the actual films.
>TERMUERA FUCKING MORRSION
IT'S BEEN SO LONG!! This game still looks like steaming shit, but I'm so happy he's back.
Luke, did I ever tell you how I used this lightsaber to hack off your fathers' limbs and leave him smoldering next to a river of lava? Weapons for a more civilized age.
However, Sam Witwer is an excellent Darth Maul.
Never was a big star wars fan as a kid. Recently they brought the whole sextupleogy, I didn't even bother with the first three because I remembered them to be completely boring the whole time.
4-6 I tried to watch because nostalgia, but holy shit they're so god damn bad.
It should have been just Obiwan and teen/adult Anakin from the start. And also actually planned out the entire arc from the start instead of Lucas just using the first draft of whatever nonsense came out of his fat delusional head.
>from the start instead of Lucas just using the first draft of whatever nonsense came out of his fat delusional head.
Did he actually use the first draft for the prequel film scripts?
So wait, what was Maul's Power then?
I imagine it was something to do with being able to take the high ground over death itself, since he keeps coming back in the animated series and comics.
Is this game Originals only? What a crock of shit. I wanna be Grievous!
The Original Trilogy runs a lot deeper than most people make it out to be, the action, the spectacle, the alien designs is all secondary to the theme of maturity, spiritualism and redemption, Star Wars is a fairy tale in space, the simplicity of the story is what appealed to people back in the 70's, if you don't understand that then clearly you haven't watched enough movies in your lifetime and is literally comparing Star Wars to other films that are better because of reasons, especially those that came after
Then there's the reason of being contrarian for the sake of being one because you think you're too good to enjoy normalfag entertainment, I'm all for picking quality stuff, but there is a reason why some films are not as successful and get a small niche fanbase compared to Star Wars, or while I'm at it, films like Terminator 2, Titanic, Avatar, Lord of the Rings, 90's Disney shit
Only if you
get the cast member that plays ariel to suck my dick.
No, he just brought some elements, in fact, I distinctly remember Mace Windu being a character that was supposed to appear in the first film, and Utapau being the place where old man General Luke Starkiller meets Green Alien Han Solo With a Robot Helmet
>in the storyboard for the first film, the gun fight at Tantive IV is much bloodier, with one of the storyboards explicitly describing one scene as one of the stormtroppers falling onto a pool of their own blood, and when Darth Vader is introduced, instead of choking Captain Antilles and slamming him against a wall, he rips his arm off and beats the shit out of him with it
So what do you guys think of the new movie?
>tfw those few parts you liked in the prequels are all negated by the overall terrible pacing and dialogue.
I think I'll just stick to the comics and cartoons. The world building and lore that i loved is already there and i don't have to be called a prequel shitter
I'll watch with the senpai, dressed as Darth Vader and dancing for whoever is going to film it and post it on Facebook
Heck, maybe I'll end up at the next Star Wars Documentary, or an internet meme
Rewatch the prequels. The CGI is blatantly obvious and is painful to see, I don't know how I missed it when they came out. The only decent CGI was the Clones vs Battle Droids and I guess the Gungans vs Battle Droids as well.
>sith is an anagram of shit
>jar jar binks
I loved Star Wars growing up. Jedi Academy, Outcast, KOTOR 1 and 2, Rogue Squadron, battlefront, etc... But I can see now it's overrated and exploited by lazy Jews
I liked the 2009 one, to an extent, but then I barely remember it, Into Darkness was really dumb, but I watched it on IMAX, so I guess I liked the seizure-inducing action scenes.
As movies? If Force Awakens is anything like those films, and while I'm at it, being live-action Disney films that have writing on the same level of those Cinderella and Malificent films, then forget it, it's gonna be pure shit.
This is like one of those videos about Flat Earth or the Holographic Moon.
It might be okay.
I also kinda like the look of the First Order Stormtroopers.
God, this webm just reveals so much. George Lucas isn't a hack. Okay, scratch that. He's a complete hack. But not because he's gotten any worse at writing or directing. He's gotten LAZY is what's happened. You can just fucking HEAR the bastard kvetching about doing even minor, essential camerawork in this clip, with or without sound, as if it's the hardest job in the whole fucking world. He could have made good prequel films. But he didn't, cause he was lazy, and he thought it'd be easier to just do everything with computers. And it was, and the films were shit, and now he's lost his franchise. Good show George.
I'd like this so much more it it wasn't so fucking smooth. It looks like a toy. I mean, that picture is actually a toy, but it took me a second to realize it because the actual costumes look like CGI.
>filming on location
Fucking pick one.
If they had to go all the way out to an actual location then George couldn't sit on his ass in a studio where one of his aides can run next door to Starbucks for more coffee.
The prequels really should have been its own thing, with the end being relatively vague as to the whole ''Anakin is Darth Vader'' thing, so people that watch it all in sequence, 1 thru 6, still feel surprised like a fish out of water when entering A New Hope, being surprised at the reveal of Empire and have that tight 'lock' at the end of Jedi.
Probably not, but the piss-scared expressions and body language are probably closer to how normal people would act in such a situation.
Either way, the movie's fucking great, and comparing it to other Kurosawa films you can see what a godlike actor Toshiro Mifune was.
You're right, but let me tell you this: Watch The Phantom Menace, it's actually filmed on location, there's miniatures, there's animatronics, compared to the other prequels it's the only one that looks like a movie
This. Sadly whenever you do a prequel you never really have much emotion on the characters. You know is going to happen to the ones that were in the original and the ones where weren't aren't impotent.
Haws there ever been a good prequel of anything ever?
Well from the video it appears to be 3 vs 3, but that's still shit. Whole team needs to be heroes, at max pop cap, for that shit to be as good as the wild nonsense that was BF2's hero mode.
Point certainly taken, especially when it comes to the fight scenes. And it does have a lot less of those shitty "walk down a hallway, pause and turn in front of a window" scenes than the other two.
God, Mifune was a really handsome man. Why can't japs look like that nowadays?
