    Oh yeah, the one cool thing he did that was never explained nor mentioned ever again. Lets make a game with it as a core mechanic!

    Watch the trailer again. Multiple times he freezes objects in the environment so he can do some platforming and towards the end he freezes enemies.

    as to what wouldn't be generic? I found kylo to be rather fresh in starwars. then there's say the swtor twins who while face wise look really bland left way more of an impression from there trailer compared to this guy.



    This guy just seems like he could be replaced by any other young jedi like say ezra.
    Does that mean you liked the Jared Leto Joker? Just because something is different doesn't mean its good.

    And of course you aren't going to get personality from a sequence to show off the gameplay. Very rarely do you get personality in these sequences unless its a game that has a quirky protagonist or a game trying to be edgy/have a personality.

    I guess, kinda. People doing insane jumps indeed is a staple in the universe.

    the joker probably isn't a good example of different not always being good as all the jokers are pretty different form one another and id say only 2 of the 6 or so have been good.

    this also isn't the only trailer we have gotten he seems just as generic in the cinematic one.

    Not convinced until I see it. Microtransactions has already been a thing in AAA singleplayer games, and EA is most definitely not above putting that shit in them.

    What was done to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided still makes my blood boil...

    no your right he is totally slowing time. Id actually say its worse then what kylo did as kylo could have just been force holding the bolt but this guy clearly slows down a trooper with a flame thrower and the flames slow.

    Game play and PC movement needs to be sped up...seems REALLY sluggish compared to what you'd expect from a Jedi. Just didn't look/ feel natural though it still looks good, I'll definitely be playing it, but I just hope the movement and game play are a lot more fluid than that game play footage made it seem.

    Which means he has a backstory but people don't want to look into it.

    Which means the movies are the only canon that matters and shouldn't rely on outside sources to build their characters.

    You know that each TV show is longer than all the movies combined... right? (well at least Clone Wars is)

    You don't get to ignore parts of the franchise then whine that you don't get the full story. What you have there is your own little headcanon where only the parts you chose count, you are quite free to do that but don't expect anyone else to listen to it.

    The vast majority of people who see star wars movies *are not exposed to other sources of canon* . Getting mad about that doesn't change anything. It's great that there is a large extended story - no one is trying to take that from you. The point is that the movies should contain enough explanation to not only tell us who characters are, but make us care about them.

    What exactly does he require to not look generic since he is quite literally based off a real Person.

    I can't wait for the day playable jedi are other races than human 445#. You have millions of species but nah need to play a human again.

Enough with the race card as long as it has a good story and is fun I could care less about who the character is. It is not the first time someone cameo’d as themselves for a Star Wars game ex Sam Witwer.
    I think the race card is fine cause you have a universe filled with aliens but we get to play as a generic human and I'm not gonna lie it gets old.

    You realise in SW Canon Humans and Near-Humans are the highest Population and as a story POV a Human Jedi would be able to blend in far better in Imperial Society simply due to the fact that Non-Humans on Imperial Worlds stick out like sore thumbs.

    anyway, gameplay looked great to me. i need to buy this, this deserves support.
    Yeah, most Padawans wouldn't be pulling stuff like this. Though some might. I think Ahsoka Tano could probably deal with foes like this. And Kanan Jarrus was a Padawan when Order 66 happened too, but by the time he reached adulthood he was basically Jedi Knight level despite technically not holding the rank. I'm going to give the game some leeway on this. What I'm having a harder time with is the murky ugly graphics and the game being boring. By the time he's outed and walking around with a lightsaber with an inquisitor on his ass, shit should be seriously tense with shit hitting the fan in an epic way. But it looks kind of meh.

    That's Force stasis, not time slowing. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Force_Stasis

    an interesting character design that couldn't be swapped out by any dime a dozen young jedi would be one thing. kylo ren is a really good example of a new star wars character who feels new.

    You did not finish reading that post, did you?

    I did, Which is why I replied to that one part specifically and why I also quoted you again about the Force Stasis ability. Both which were to show that your thought of it somehow being a time slowing mechanic were... well wrong.
