  1. There was an old SNES game I played (an action RPG) with something that might be good. Terranigma.
  2. Slightly off-topic, but something that I've sometimes thought about is how it seems to be a common RPG cliche to have some secret and shadowy cult/group trying to bring back or revive some ancient and evil god/demon/monster, so that they can rule/destroy/conquer the world. Why not have a reversal? Have some secret and shadowy cult/group that is trying to revive an ancient and good god/angel/creature so that they can save/heal/unite the world. Depending on how the rest of the world perceived this group, it could have very interesting effects on the allignment of the character. Let's say tha
  3. I'm highly doubtful about that. KotORIII and KotOR MMO rumors have been going around for ages now, so until I hear something with a really good source (IE and Obsidian exec posting on these boards that they're working on a new Star Wars RPG that will make many people happy, or Bioware posts a press release on their site saying they are doing a KotOR MMO), I'm not going to believe it.
  4. What makes you think Revan and Exile are Uber Force Users? All we know about Revan's skills is that he's a "great" general. I don't believe it, most people do, fine. Revan is a great general. That's it. All the Exile can do is defeat some Jedi Council members and resist Nihilus' drain. Exile has a special talent of Force Bonds, but it is foolish to believe that special talent suddenly makes him a very powerful Jedi. Revan and Exile can both be defeated, and probraly can be defeated by the original Jedi Masters...as long as biases in favor of Exile and Revan (really just biases in f
  5. I understand not wanting to have too many powerful Jedi/Sith in one short time-span, but I wouldn't put Bandon on that list. I mean, did he really demonstrate anything that showed he was that strong? He killed Trask (A non-jedi grunt soldier), strutted around a bit, and force pushed some random guy for fun. He was presumably the strongest guy serving Malak at the time, but that doesn't mean there was anything very exceptional about him. Even among a group of weaklings, someone has to be the strongest. And Exar Kun and the people of his era were about 40 years before Revan, weren't they? So
  6. Regarding Wookies, just manipulate things by having some pawns lead a fleet in an attempt to wipe out the entire Wookie planet. (Can't remember how to spell it.) Then show up and destroy the fleet and "save" all the Wookies. Give me your life debts, or great walking carpets.
  7. Well, for KotORIII, they can just make the system of changing alignments less abstract, as well as improve the overall influence system. Also make several characters impossible to change, at least change very much, and have the degree you can alter the viewpoint of a character make sense based on the story events and the personality of the character. Here's how I see it: Stage 1, you get influence with a character. Gaining unfluence will be similar in principle to how it happened in KotORII, but will be better handled. As Tale mentioned, hand-picking specific responses in each situation ba
  8. Well, I'm sure that some of this has been said before by others somewhere in the 23 versions of this thread, but I have some ideas for KotORIII. First, many people have asked, who should you play as? Revan, the Exile, or someone new? I say all 3, though with the focus on the new character. Let me explain. People are going to want to have the story of Revan and the Exile resolved. This is natural, a KotORIII that leaves players still hanging about their ultimate fates would cause quite a bit of anger. But the problem is, any resolution to their stories is going to cause players annoyanc
  9. Ah, the patch. I've stopped worrying about it, and have been playing WoW. I still do check back every now and then to see if the patch has been released, though.
  10. Patience is a virtue, they say. Thanks for replying; it's nice to know that you guys are still working hard on trying to get it released, at least, as some of us were starting to get concerned after the long period with no update.
  11. I do have a question for you, 213374U. What was the reason you made your intitial post. Up until then, this thread had been a mostly lighthearted thread where people who've had trouble with the game could vent a little frustration at the wait for the patch. Almost all the posts were made in a joking manner, and there really wasn't much bashing. So how exactly was this thread the type of thread that goes a "long way toward explaining why the forums were almost closed"? Where was this "blatant effort at bashing OE out of the spite"?
  12. Personal attacks will never win or help a debate. "Brainless buffon!" "Troll!" "You're the troll!" "Attention-whore!" "Troll!" "You trolling troll!" "You're the troll!" It's all sort of pointless, and leads to back and forth arguements of little value. Something people would do well to keep in mind in this thread.
  13. I dunno, judging by the moderator's actions, it probably won't be long before the attention-starved youngster is banned. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> To be fair, remarks like that are just goading him to respond with something... extreme. And I would prefer for this thread to remain open and at least somewhat on topic, though it's probably too late for the latter.
  14. I suggest that people calm down and stop swearing.
