  1. [spoilers] people are way way to ott about spoiling things, the fun is in finding out how things happen, not what happens, think bout it [\spoilers]

    From what I heard until now, because of people not carefully handling spoilers, I know a lot of things I didn't want to. This has put a considerous dent in my expectations of the game.

    Ever heard of Schr

    well, The how is very nice, but personally, I like to experience the what first-hand instead of it being spoiled.....like the Twist from KOTOR, for example. some #$%@ ruined that one for me at GameFAQs, and even though all I could think about was why/how, I knew it was coming; that sucked. Didn't stop my enjoyment of the game, but the experience could've been even more mind-blowing, imho.

  3. I don't think it's buggy.


    Let's consider what some people are complaining about.


    Let's say your dark, and you twisted the Handmaiden dark.  People are complaining that you lose influence with her with some dark options.  Influence isn't based simply on light and dark.  You gain inlfuence with one person with overty cruelty, and lose influence with another person.


    But, in this case, Handmaiden objects to a particular cruel action that she witnesses.  A true Sith Lord hides their cruel behavior.


    Either way, if you gained influence by doing whatever you are naturally inclined to do, then you'd max influence with all the party members with no effort.


    That is a broken system.


    Agreed -- I don't see morality in black and white, and neither does this game. Well, not as much as the last, anyway!

  4. it ain't hard, as I have never been completely decimated, but I'll lose a PC on occasion. However, not if I unleash my combos of death (insanity/stasis + force storm/force wave) -- but that can get boring, imho.


    The combat system hasn't changed from the last -- it would not be hard at all for those who mastered the last game. However, I want to fully-utilize all my party-members, try new force combos, etc.

  5. With all the bad acting that was going on in the new movies it is hard to tell what everyone is trying to do. Like the part where Anakin tells Padme about all the sand people he slaughters it seems more like he is slipping to the whiny side of the force and not the dark side.


    LOL (w00t)



    Damned if you do, damned if you don't, Obsidian. I think the Influence system is great -- the only person I have been set on getting to know my first playthrough is Handmaiden, and let me tell you, she talks alot. And as far as being a lightsider goes, she has surpassed me! But I can tell I have a positive affect on my other followers as well, switching them in to get their take on certain events, etc.....


    The Influence system isn't perfect, but it's a great addition that I hope to see bolstered in a KOTOR3! In the original KOTOR, the only way to get a really good Dark Side endgame bonus-scene was to not only be nice to Carth and make him fall in love with you, but to save his son as well. Now, as a Dark Sider, I personally gave no quarter, but in retrospect, I would have to "fake it" to see Carth dead.

  6. I'm finding that the game has equal amounts of intense combat and storyline -- I don't die often, but I'd be lying if I said I never lose a person in battle. There are some battles where I'll lose atleast one!


    On Dantooine,

    I was met by a gang of 6 to 8 heavily armored mercs, with double-bladed staffs. First thing I queued up was a Mandalorian Power shield or something similar, and they killed my Exile in 2 seconds (oops). Kreia then proceeded to make them all insane, and then fried them all using force lightning in about the same time.


  7. For the record,

    you can't get on the main quest until you solve a bunch of side quests that either piss off or impress the Exchange. Until you attract their notice, put the Jedi Master and the ship codes on the backburner.




    Ok, on Nar Shaddaa, I

    wiped out the Exchange and freed that girl, wiped out those mercs or whatever, and did a few deliveries and still no invite

    -- imho, this board makes you super-paranoid! I'm determined to finish NAr Shaddaa tonight!! I guess I just need to do more quests for rep.

  8. The story in this game is so good that I'm not minding the bugs.


    Are people taking the time to really get to know the characters in the game?


    If all you're looking for is combat, then this game probably isn't for you.



    Same here, Ender! I'm allzabout talking to my party members, getting to know them, trying to influence all. But I'm really enjoying the combat as well, playing on Difficult, and see no reason I need to 'handicap' myself. If I wanted an action-packed challenge, I wouldn't play an RPG -- I'd play NINJA GAIDEN on Very Hard or something similar. ;)

  9. One thing that seems to cause this:  if you use the airspeeder to travel around Nar Shaddaa before the Red Eclipse shows up, it cancels the cutscene and they don't.  I tested this in my most recent game, and it was definitely the cause.


    I don't think this is true......I travelled everywhere with the fixed-up airspeeder, and did most of the sidequests, and the Red Eclipse showed up. I already had Visas (did Onderon/Dxun before Nar Shaddaa), but I haven't triggered the invite from the Exchange -- unfortunately, I didn't stick around after dispatching the Red Eclipse, so I have to go back and see if I get the invite......

  10. I was a bit unsure what to do on Nar Shaddaa as well, but after wiping out the bad guys that tried to claim the Ebon Hawk, try to go back on the planet, and apparently, you should get an invite to somewhere......let me know if you do! I just took off to another planet instead of getting off the ship again, since I had no clue what to do at that moment either, so I did some askin around.

  11. All I know is im not impressed from watching Vader in the OT.  Same goes for the emporer.  Sure he was able to conquer the galaxy and such but thats all mastermind kind of stuff.  I want to see fighting abilities.  You don't become the most successfull sith lord ever just from being smart.  You gotta be able to throw down if need be.  Hopefully episode III will change all that since it is rumored that he will be dishing out several cans of whoop ass on the jedi.


    Why Vader is a bad ass:

    1. "I find your lack of faith disturbing." He can force-choke from long-distance!

    2. "Impressive." He's got lightsaber skills, but not many powers -- Anakin musta been a guardian before going Sith Lord?

    3. Clothes make the man, so does his voice. :p


    The making of Episode III included with the OT boxset almost makes me want to watch it..... :ermm:
