  1. I think that's how it should have ended too. The LotRs one is amusing.
  2. It's an act of goodness, purity and mercy - to the rest of the world/universe. It's a tough business, but someone has to do it. For the good of all. And gunguns too. Well, as long as GL doesn't mess with Kotor, I'll be happy.
  3. I actually meant that the chances of Blizzard making Warcraft 4 are exceedingly slim now because of WoW, so if they make a Kotor MMO, the chances of them making Kotor3 are going to go down. Although I like your analogy too
  4. What an absolute joke. This will be like WoW was to the Warcraft series - only worse.
  5. Looking forward to this. Com'on guys, don't give up!
  6. Just as long as they don't just restore the cut content (i.e. classes, such as shifter, mystic theurge, sacred fist, etc (toolsets are great to look at for 'what might have beens')) for the expansion and actually add something new (aside from the story) then I'll be happy. It'd be wonderful if they fixed the OC, but I doubt'll happen. I just hope the storyline is less spoonfed to us this time and somewhat darker. Subtle is good . I hope its more Kotor2's to Kotor1 (if that makes any sense).
  7. That is one of the nicest things I've ever heard anyone say about Britian. Really. As far as I'm aware, and I could be mistake, we don't have jay walking over here. If we do, no one pays any attention to it, ever. Even the cops do it. As far as I recall, we've never been taught in school not to 'jay walk'. In fact, I only heard the term when I was in the US/Canada. I find it absurd that anyone would fine you for something as simple as crossing a road. Admittely, yours are a lot bigger though.
  8. QTF. To which I was agreeing that the ones who issued the death threats would do well to reexamine their own scriptures and 'turn the other cheek'. At least, that's what I was trying to get across in my first post. Apologises for any confusion.
  9. Don't they have a right to be offended? I agree that they should turn the other cheek, but as long as they are protesting peacefully what is the problem? Death threats are not very "Christian" however
  10. Elanee & Sand were my favourites. Elanee I don't like all the time, and while she can be unreasonable, most of the time she speaks sense. Sand was quite dry, which I also liked, but I don't feel they did enough with him. Bishop spoke a lot of sense, although I didn't like him in-character because of his ideals - I did like him out of character. Shandra I liked too, but she felt a bit generic. Ammon I like/dislike. He reminds me of Bishop, and both of them annoy me in the lack of responses/see outside the box the way they can makes my character look stupid. Quite honestly, I agree with most of what they say, if not their methods. Grobnar I dislike most of all; he's whiny, annoying and downright irritating. He might be 'sweet' but he just blabs too much. Damnable gnomes. Neeshka is sweet but also rather immature and annoying. Casavir I'm somewhat sympathetic too, backstory-wise but the rest just annoys me. I don't care for paladins, and almost fallen as he is, he's still a tool. The Gith woman could have been interesting but I don't think they did enough with her, and she just irritates me with her self-righteous babble. I didn't like the dwarf - his constant bloodlust is not neutral good. While some of what he says is okay and he's an interesting character, I prefer the darker ones like Bishop or the more reserved ones like Elanee. Khelgar's utter lack of subtly combined with Neeshka's rashness and their bitchiness (not helped by Elanee's whining) is fun the first time but grows old quickly. If my guy has such a great assortment of mental stats, then surely the others shouldn't be smarter than he is and having to put up with everyone's whinging is annoying. But that's personal preference - and as such, Elanee gets my vote because she agrees with my character most, although she whines too much. Sand is a close second though.
  11. The main problem with the PT was that everything was forced. Everything happened because it had to happen; not because there were any solid reasons behind it. The reasons that were offered were flimsy at best. From a tactical point of view, very little made sense. While I accept that humans are rarely logical and tend to choose emotion over reason, there were still far too many conveniences for my tastes. I can't think of any offhand though unfortantely. I just remember feeling "Why?" throughout the entire movie. The winning side seemed to win because it had to; in the first movie, the robots were the best side; then it was the stormtroopers who butchered the jedi (granted it was from behind but meh - huge let down there) and then in the OT, the stormtroopers are useless (yeah say they "degenerated" or something - its still flimsy). Everything was wonderful because it had to be. Granted, again certain events had been established as canon, but it could've been handled a lot better. The Jedi were a bunch of weaklings and utterly undeserving of respect. The dialogue was terrible and everything was forced. From a visual point of view, it was wonderful. There were good actors there; people gave some decent performances given the lines they were given, but the entire script was cheesy and again, forced. And having Anakin being troubled did not have to translate to "its not fair!". He could have been troubled without whining. Padme was equally useless. She was weak and lacked a backbone - which is pathetic given her role as leading an entire people. Then there was the emperor - Anakin broke far too easily and in my opinion, our evil villain wasn't at all convincing and if Anakin had a shred of sense, he'd have realised/suspected he was being played. It painted him as a sheep and a tool. As others have said, the evil laughter was out of place, as was Vader's "Nooooooo". Utterly pathetic. Honestly, I didn't mind Jar-jar so much, aside from the stupid name, and while he was pathetic, he was the least of my concerns with the films. Overall, what killed the thing most was the whining and the lack of convincing reasons for the story.
  12. That's a little harsh. They should at least get a trial and "go through the motions" first. After that - put them up against a wall and shoot them. Aside from that, I agree with you.
  13. I recently completed the game again... my second run through. First time I played an NG character who somehow wound up as LG, much to my eternal disgust, and second time, my LE character wound up as NE. The evil ending was a lot more fun than the good ending, and I must say, I preferred playing as a guy to a gal. It simply felt like there was more to hear from the various characters - then again, I've never liked Pallys, so... I was kinda disappointed with the choice of prestige classes. I was really hoping they'd include the Mystic Theurge prc so I could try my druid/sorcerer out. My unarmoured wizard with four levels of duelist would've worked better if I could've selected the "Practised spellcaster" feat. I couldn't find it for some reason though. My first ranger4/sorc1/DDR10/knight-of-the-nine5 didn't impress me too much, but my monk3/fighter4/WM/duellist for my evil character did . I'm sure there are better combinations around though. Tried the warlock; didn't like it.
  14. I never even considered laying down mines But I like the idea of "compulsive mine laying disorder" My exile lays mines everywhere due to his traumatic past that you encounter later on in the game "No I run across the bridge and disarm all the mines; no, why did you have to die, it should've been me!" " Or some such. Roleplaying justifies everything.
  15. Pest is an understatement. The biggest one I've heard this year. Back on topic... Eye implants :crazy: Well, people are free to do what they like, I however, will be staying far away from that. Admittedly, some tattoos do look good on some people, and more power to them, just as some piercings look good on some people.
