  1. I'm here because some pretentious schutta stole my ship.
  2. If producers have felt able to ignore community desire for K3 for eight years, what makes you think trying to whip up the remnants of a community that exist at this point will work?
  3. Yes, but being fond of the past doesn't mean wanting to actually live in it*, let alone restrict yourself to the intellectual prejudices and, to be frank, idiocies, of it. * I've tried. The plumbing is appalling.
  4. Believe in science? You might as well worship a hammer.
  5. Not that it makes much difference over here. Even our nuclear shelters for government officials were rubbish.
  6. Isn't this the secret of every Mac product? It's shiny and overpriced, therefore it must be worth it... right? Right?
  7. The real question is what we should do. I mean, normally you give something to the birthday child, though I'm not sure I want to know what an Obs-board-designed game would look like*. *Obviously, it would have to be set in the fabulous Bowl-World® setting, possibly involving much Fighting In Tunnels.
  8. You should 'phone yourself when you arrive.
  9. In as much as words are the tools of thought, quite possibly not.
  10. The world is not an amalgam of objects in space; it is a heterogeneous series of independent acts - the world is successive, temporal, but not spatial. Would you agree, incidentally, that mirrors and copulation are abominable, because they increase the number of men?
  11. The Sun doesn't have hydrogen gas or liquid in it, the Sun doesn't fuse atoms to create energy either, its God's light. In ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hominum: et lux in tenebris lucet, et tenebræ eam non comprehenderunt. (vel) ἐν αὐτῷ ζωὴ ἦν, καὶ ἡ ζωὴ ἦν τὸ φῶς τῶν ἀνθρώπων. καὶ τὸ φῶς ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ φαίνει, καὶ ἡ σκοτία αὐτὸ οὐ κατέλαβεν. (Jn 1:4-5)
  12. How's that going to work, given KotOR relies heavily on either mouse-and-keyboard, or Xbox controller inputs?
  13. OEI's pitch is a dead letter. EA is not going to take an external developer with a record like OEI's when they have Bioware as part of their portfolio - which in business terms is a much surer bet.
  14. EA has the license to make Star Wars games for the next few years: http://ea.newshq.businesswire.com/press-release/company-news/walt-disney-company-and-ea-announce-multi-year-star-wars-games-agreement This is pretty much an announcement that Bio is making another KotOR - and that OEI isn't in the running. This, of course, fits with Disney's approach to the SW franchise: milk it for all it's worth.
  15. From your intimate knowledge of the subject, living halfway around the world and an ocean away from the United Kingdom. It's particularly... interesting to note in those too young to have even seen her resign. The word indoctrination might seem a little extreme, but then, so is the reaction on both the Left and the Right. Particularly given that, you know, she resigned in nineteen-ninety. The only person who still cared about Stanley Baldwin in 1950 was Churchill. Her ladyship. She was given a barony, not a dukedom. 3 day week? The Three-Day Week. A Conservative screw-up, but still illustrative of the chokehold the union leaders possessed. What on Earth does the royal family have to do with it? The second election of (October) '74. "Who governs Britain?", and all that.
  16. So, what do people reckon to the chances of OE's Star Wars RPG pitch, in the light of this?
  17. Pretty sure Disney said somewhere they weren't interested in video games and would be scaling back production of them, and that they're uninterested in the EU, too.
  18. Yes, but given the previous two games and TOR, there's going to be a lot of pressure on for it to resolve the Revan/Exile narrative. Plus, I thought I read that Disney was planning to shut down LucasArts and/or scale back on Star Wars games...
  19. Kestelman is a great actress with a wonderful voice. She's definitely got the chops to do a first-rate job as the narrator, and it'd be a significant boon for the game to be voice-acted by people of that calibre (if and where possible). Additionally, while her voice is recognisable, it's hardly ubiquitous, and Kestelman has demonstrated in her career enough different characters that it need not be a Kreia-clone.
