  1. EB Games/Gamestop just changed the release date on their site this morning. It's now listed there as "October 27th" as well. Short of a flat out statement from a dev, I'd say the delay is as confirmed as it can get. Like others have said its a real bummer that AP and Dragon Age: Origins are grouped so closely together. I think that can only work against AP's chances when it comes to sales. DA:O has been all over the place on gaming sites lately, and I think a lot more people are aware of it than Alpha Protocol.
  2. I just got an email from Amazon alerting me that the release date for AP was delayed until October 27. Has anyone with a preorder got a similar email or can one of the devs comment?
  3. I'm back. And I have to say I totally agree with Volourn. This game outshines KOTOR in every way. And not just because I'm a Wuxia fanboy (btw, JE has blown the last of my entertainment budget for the month, so now I can't get the House of Flying Daggers DVD I still think it will be worth it though.) The game beats KOTOR graphically, in terms of inventory management, combat-wise and strength of storyline. The lack of customization doesn't really bother me (PST had even less customization) and it is true that the subquests in later chapters greatly expand the game length. It's still not
  4. My dogs are scratching at the door and prancing around so I figure it's a pretty good opportunity to take a short break and post a few initial impressions through the end of the first chapter of Jade Empire. I'll go into my two gripes first, to get them out of the way. First, I have to say I hope the game isn't this short through the whole game. If you figure there is seven chapters in the game and the first chapter took me just over three hours to complete, I'm looking at a 21 hour game, doing the sidequests that easily present themselves as I follow the main quest. I have heard the sideq
  5. Well, I just got the game from my friendly neighborhood Fedex man so, after I get a few hours in, I'll post a few impressions. (I need to take breaks to take my St. Bernard dogs out anyway.) I find I tend to rely on people from messageboards like this one to form my purchase decisions regarding games as opposed to 'professional' reviewers. Of course, my opinion is probably going to be instantly discredited after I reveal that I was one of the three people who enjoyed TOEE, and Arcanum is one of my top three RPGs of all time, but what can you do?
  6. I voted Bioware- just because it should give closure to the whole Revan thing and that involves most of K1's cast-which OE didn't seem to want to handle. Incidentally does anyone have any ideas on the console RPG game that Bioware is working on using the UnReal engine that is being done after Dragon Age? Could it possibly be KOTOR3?? I mean, it would cover the whole issue of a new engine as well as redesigning combat... And it will follow two original IPs from Bioware (Jade Empire and Dargon Age) so maybe they're going back to a 'safe' project after that. I'd say it's a strong possibll
  7. Where does one obtain this 'special' modification? This, I have to see!!
  8. I'm on my second playthrough (trying the characters I didn't have much use for the first time) any advice for influence on G0T0, Hanharr, and HK-47??
  9. When do you meet Carth for a LS Revan? Is it on the first visit to the Citadel Station, or after you fight off the Sith invasion?
  10. Okay, so I finished the game and beyond seeing the Disciple report to Carth at the end of Dantooine, the vision of Revan on Korriban, and the message left on T3-M4's memory banks by Bastila. My character has not actually met any of them. Is this ever possible? I'd think that you'd least meet Carth on the Citadel Station. My Revan was DS Male and I was LS male, if that helps.
  11. YES!!!! This is what I've always wanted the Chronicles to be! Nice one (w00t)
  12. I haven't actually bought a video game from the store since the original KOTOR. I find it to be much less hassle for me to order it from Gamestop and just wait the two days shipping, rather than worry about driving 30-45 minutes after a bloody awful day of work to either Wal-Mart or EB Games. Plus, I don't have to deal with people which is ALWAYS a plus for me. Anyway, my copy of K2 and The Bard's Tale (which my gf got me for Xmas) just arrived in Columbus Ohio so I think I'll have it tomorrow morning. Then, well, tomorrow might very well be the Friday on my work week.
  13. That's all I needed to read. :ph34r: :ph34r:
  14. I think that OE has realized this in building the game...hence Atton's "I have a bad feeling about this" whenever something comparably threatening comes up. The audience seeking a hardcore RPG experience is sadly not sufficent enough to warrant a truly challenging RPG any more.
