Introduction



There are rumors that Jedi Academy was originally planned to be an expansion pack for Jedi Outcast, but whatever the case, it ended up being a stand-alone game, also developed by Raven. The combat is much better then Jedi Outcast, the story... the story is not.

This game puts the player into the shoes of Jaden Korr, a young force-sensitive accepted into the Jedi Academy. Unlike in Jedi Outcast, you can allocate force powers to light or dark abilities, instead of having them get unlocked as you progress through the story.

The game is set up in a tiered system of missions- there are three sets of five missions that can be played in any order. That's because the story in the game is pretty much entirely doled out in the missions at the start/end of a Tier. You'll pick the order we'll play the missions.

Next Tangent and I will both be doing a VLP of this game. Nakar may join us if he can solve some technical issues - he's getting bad lag when he starts recording videos. One of us will play Light side, the other will play Dark side, so you'll get both endings. After we beat the game,  we'll change sides and do it again. 

The game eventually lets players wield two lightsabers or use a saber-staff, so we'll do that. Naturally, we'll both be keeping track of our death counts again.

The game also introduces some new Lightsaber and Acrobatic moves. Note that because you're choosing the next levels we play, we cannot play ahead in the game, and so we won't be updating every day, there will be at least a day between videos.
