  1. I believe "Shogun" features such puzzles. It's an oldish Infocom/Legend adventure (written by the author of the novel) that involves figuring out Japanese grammar. I never played it but www.theunderdogs.org gave it a very good review.
  2. Perhaps not the top choice, but I think that Kreia was masterfully sarcastic.
  3. No, you won't. You are far to fond of your own words to delete a single one of them, regardless of how irrelevant they might be. Although I agree with Aegis (whose "attacks" where more than fair, by the way, and didn't deserve such a hot-tempered defense on your part), I think I will stay out of this one. That is because this is clearly a monologue thread, not a discussion.
  4. Personal Crystal? How the hell did I miss that? I read the faq posted above and saw that you are supposed to find it in the Cave on Dantooine. Problem is: I didn't! Is it only in the X-Box version perchance? Or am I simply blind, daft and dumb?
  5. I see that you have got a point but I also see that I don't see it ... ehm, if that makes any sense (in my defence, I am a linguist) This interests me. If you can provide a step-by-step explanation for dummies, I would apreciate it.
  6. But assuming he had always lied before: Then the statement would be "the truth" and therefore a paradox because it disqualifies its own content. S: "This (S) true statement is false." Assuming he had never lied before, or only ocasionally: Then the statement would be false and still be a paradox: S:"This (S) false statement is false". Because the statement is refering to itself in an incorrect way.
  7. But don't we have to assume that a statement is valid for it to be a possible paradox? And isn't "I always lie" basically the same as "This statement is false"? Since, if the speaker always lies, as he claims, then this particular statement would be lie, too. Ergo: "This statement is false." If we discard them as meaningless/false to begin with, then none of the alternatives above would qualify as paradoxes, if I understand you correctly. We would simply assume them to be lies.
  8. Where is the problem with that, by the way? In my oppinion, it would only be a paradox if it were phrased: "Is 'no' the answer to this question?"
  9. Hmm, I guess that's about all the 'Dark Side' runs up to: Domination. As for ruling the galaxy: Palpatine managed to accomplish this "implausible" task, after all. I wouldn't doubt that the "untold adventures of DS Revan" could lead to the same result, especially because he/she has a "Death Star" from the very beginning. Me neither. There will be lots of stories left to be told. But again, the task of showing these further developments in this particular medium, without breaking its very foundations, is too daunting. Both LS and DS main characters would do lots of things in the future, b
  10. But they would have to if they continue in this way.
  11. Thanks. I should try it out. After all, playing Ultima was so important to me back then that I nearly had a hard attack when I found out that VII (1) was bugged and couldn't be finished without a patch. Yes, that was before the internet. IV was still the best, though. Completely unique. But perhaps we should start an off-topic thread for this one. Have to go now. See you around, guys
  12. And I loved Ultima! (Until I finished VIII, that is ) . But Ultima was not a multi-path game. It was as single-path as can be imagined. You are the Avatar, the incarnation of Virtue in a Fantasy world and you return again and again and again to finish a given plot with a fixed ending. Of course you can write great sequels to that. And, in this case, breaking with continuity would be a mistake, since the whole Avatar-theme is what made the series. Kotor, however, is something completely different. And concerning "variations of the same theme": Star Wars itself is as "variation of the sam
  13. I'm confused... doesn't it have an effect on the storyline when a bad Revan burns the galaxy with his massive fleet and a good Revan builds a lot of petting zoos? I mean, after only five years and with many of the old crew still hanging around, it would be strange to find no trace of the rather extreme endings of Kotor 1 - unless one made them completely irrelevant. And I don't know how that is to be considered satisfying. So people would rather have inconsequential endless continuity than one good and final ending? Because they "want to know what happens to their characters"? That's wei
  14. So? That makes me a second level whiner while you are still a first-class imbecile. Anyway, you should give progress a shot. In your case, it would be called "evolution". And before you trouble yourself with looking it up: I mean that strange power that might present your line with opposable thumbs one glorious day. As for continuing this little exchange, lets do it via PM. I hope to hear from you soon, since I have so little opportunity to whine about monosyllabic gibberish where I live. Oh, and by the way: It's not called "whining" but "insulting", and I enjoy it quite a bit in your case
  15. Actually, that reminds Most Holy of a fitting parable. Fetch a pen, Boobah! What Most Holy is trying to say is: Giving people a cameo of Revan is a little like throwing him from a rooftop. As for your point about the title, Most Holy will take the liberty to quote himself, because Most Holy is above shame:
