Hi all just wanted to see all your thoughts on the 4th in the Jedi Knight series: Jedi Council. I'm wondering if there basing it on the Jedi Council GXC or wotevr it is called map.LoL This discussion is taking place in another forum and I thought this post was quite interesting I quote: For JK4 the developers should go back to the roots of the JK series. because lets face it the only person to have any sort of succses after the Empire has been Jeric, He took control of the empire and actualy thretend the galexy, he trained 6 other dark Jedi where as Tavion was stoped before she resurected Marka Ragnos which ment there was no threat to the galexy, Desane's plans were crushed before Kyle even killed him. We need to have a Sith lord who has control of the empire and has made them strong again and trained other Dark jedi and is already taking control of part of the galexy before the Jedi can stop them thus having a proper strong and powerful Sith lord aiming for total control of the galexy insted of having a small time Sith lord (Tavion) trying to get into some sort of position in which they can start thinking of chalenging the jedi. Or we can go with Tavion s initial idea and resurecting a dead sith lord or more than 1 or even all the great sith lords like Marka Ragnos and Jeric and having the game starting with the jedi trying to stop 1 or 2 resurected sith lords while they are building up their empires. By the end of the game we can have the jedi fighting an army of great sith lords with perhpas some of the old dead jedi for the fate of the Galexy Anyways After that large quate. Give me your thoughts! Lord Morto

Also heres a thought: They could make it about Qu-Rahn and how he found the Valley of the Jedi. Kind of a prequel I guess.

From what I've seen on the horizon, it doesn't look like Lucas have any interest in developing the JK series any further :( . Apparently there was a "definitive lack of popularity". :bs: But if JK4 ever does come around, the battles of the New Republic are definitely the way to go. Like, who takes over the Academy after Luke? What enemies arise to challenge the Republic? How many levels can they cram in where we get to fly some cool starfighters :) ? The whole Dark Jedi plot is running too thin, we need something new. What that something is, I don't know yet...


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Yuuzhan Vong maybe. Though I'm not sure a force-immune, lightsaber-resistant enemy would make for a particularly good game.

Ther is going to be a JK4. Since I've heard so far, they're making quake 4. Why can't there be a JK4? JK4 should be based on the time during Revenge of the Sith where you get to play as Anakin being partners with Obi-Wan and get to "join the light side and kill sidious during Mace's assassination" or do it the movie way, by (well, you know what if you've seen the movie) but it SHOULD be based in Revenge of the Sith it would be WAAAAAYYY cooler. I mean Jedi Outcast/Academy is like "Oh no, There's sith and the Emperor is back. Gotta go stop them again." Ravensoft, start making something better like the revege of the sith type of game because if Ravensoft can make these big maps with ships, then they should certainly make more. Revenge of the Sith is awesome, if RS can make models, well go ahead and make some Episode III models! Be my guest!! Certainly, if they make a JK4, I hope they don't make it like Luke: Hello to my academy students. Students?! Students: SSSSNNNNOOOOOREE Luke: Students wake up we have to go stop the Emperor again and stop The cultists from sucking some more energy!!!

Just cause there could be a JK4 doesn't mean there will be. Ravensoft have to decide whether or not the franchise is worth continuing, and finance is one factor. I don't think any company can really afford to pump out games people would buy. Also, I see where you're coming from with that Revenge of the Sith theme idea, but it wouldn't work in a JK game. And besides, ROTS has been covered so many times it would be snore-ville. Something a lot more original and a ton less lame would definitely do the trick, but I'm really losing faith in the writers at Raven and LucasArts after JK3's plot... Sucking energy, how sad. Is that really the best they can think of?

Kyle needs to die. Player needs to kill him. At the beginning.

It should be a game from the Sith's point of view. A darker, more versatile game (meaning not all hack, slash, hold down Fire, jump like crazy etc etc). A stealth option should be added, so you could kill everything, or nothing. And more strategy to fighting! I hate the current system... and Kyle needs to die. He's too old. If Raven wants to continue screwing up the Star Wars timeline, they could kill Luke too. Not such a bad idea.... But it needs to be done early.

Yeah thats exactly what i would like to see if there were to be a jk4. To play from a Sith/Dark jedi point of view. After all, they do need a new character unless they want to have kyle suddenly forgeting all his force powers and having to start from the basics like in jk2.

Kyle's too old. I'd personally like to see a revisiting to Mara Jade. There's always plenty of potential with her.

Either that or can the series completely and go with something new. A spin off of KotOR, as a JK-ish game (what do you call JK? A first person saberer?) would be quite interesting, and has tons of potential for storyline. There are the Sith wars, the Jedi Civil war, whatever haven's after KotOR2... it's a gold mine of possibility.

Yeah, that might be worth looking into... a JK Game that follows the NJO series could be really interesting if they get it right. And if the Yuuzhan Vong would make great baddies..... just like the MagnaGuards did in the ROTS game.
