  1. We can only hope. Maybe we will find out some neat stuff soon, I have a feeling with the new generation of gamers playing Kotor 1 and 2. Is there a new generation of gamers playing Kotor 1 & 2?
  2. Not specifically because of FO: New Vegas, but I have come to consider the possibility that SW:ToR might not be the killer of the single-player KOTOR franchise after all. There is a sliver of hope that Lucas Arts is greedy enough to continue both.
  3. It would be nice, but only if it were more MotB than SoZ. Story is Obsidian's strength - don't artificially forfeit it Obsidian!
  4. Thanks for the tip. I don't use Firefox, but I might give it a try just to see if that particular feature is better than in IE.
  5. Games that I am looking forward to about which we already know a substantial amount: Diablo III Dragon Age Starcraft II Games that have potential to interest me, but about which we know next to nothing other than their existence in development: Fallout: Vegas Games that are merely rumored, but have good potential to interest me if they do come out: Heroes of Might and Magic VI Warcraft IV NWN2: NX3 Games that are not even rumored, but that would almost inevitably interest me if they came out: KOTOR III Pathfinder CRPG Civilization IV
  6. From older games, I still play games like Starcraft and Diablo II with their expansion packs - Brood War and Lord of Destruction. From more recent games, I play Heroes of Might and Magic V: Tribes of the East and King's Bounty: The Legend. I also sometimes do 'replays' of classic RPGs I have played before, but these replays are such that I basically try to redo what I did the first time, just to refresh my memory (and I sometimes even use old saved games to facilitate this - some of them very old!). I have replayed Dark Sun: Shattered Lands in this manner and I am thinking about replaying KOTOR.
  7. So do I, but I do fear the project might be a bit too ambitious for one developer working in his free time.
  8. Well, Anakin Skywalker did restore balance to the force by ending the lengthy dominance of the light side... albeit only temporarily.
  9. that is correct. Thanks - I just wanted to be clear on that.
  10. I read a lot of news online and try to archive all the articles I read for future offline access. I do this by saving each webpage to my computer manually. Needless to say, this can be somewhat annoying and time-consuming, when I have to do it over and over and over many times per day every day. Is there some easier and less time-consuming way to do such archiving?
  11. I would not buy a Mackintosh either, so I am with you here. That said, I guess the explanation for some people buying Macs is probably threefold: 1) They view computers as fashion statements rather than merely working/entertainment machines. Most computer users probably don't do this, but some might and there is nothing inherently wrong with doing so. 2) They don't know much about computers and think that futuristic-looking computers like Macs are automatically better than standard-looking ones. 3) Customer loyalty to Apple, hate for Microsoft and a bunch of associated ideological reasons. Sometimes the three can operate in combination with one another and other times they work separately.
  12. True about the personal choices. I think KOTOR 3 would be best if it started with a new character and a new crew (though some old faces would be nice - HK-47, for example,...).
  13. Yes, I too find it mystifying why people buy Apple computers. They look good, but the price premium over the same insides is just incredibly high.
  14. So is Obsidian the developer of this and Bethesda the publisher and licenser or are the two companies co-developers?
  15. Holy ****, Blizzard has over 1000! That may well be, but Blizzard is also its own publishes, not just a developer. On top of that, Blizzard has World of Warcraft and all the support staff who are associated with that. Lol, I think we all understood that you mean 1000 and not 1000x999x998x997x996x995x994....
  16. I agree. Having 150 people is a pretty nice size for a game development company.
  17. It is certainly possible and has been speculated by many discussing the game. Tyrael was very cool and I would certainly like to see him get some extra game-footage whether as a corrupted Angel or as a paragon of virtue.
  18. How big is Obsidian Entertainment these days? I thought Obsidian had about 100 people or just over that number, but recent announcements seem to hint that it is substantially larger than that. I gather that from the fact that it is working simultaneously on Alpha Protocol, the next Fallout title, perhaps still slightly on Aliens (in suspended animation?) and on several unnannounced projects. That is a LOT.
  19. Diablo 3 looks awesome and I look forward to its release, but that will probably take a while...
  20. And there goes my interest... Mine too... the chances of my purchase of the Mysteries of Westgate have just decreased to near zero. Of course, the word 'near' is only there to account for the slight chance that they might change it and I will hear about it, which seems rather unlikely, since even if they do change it, I will be unlikely to hear about it, given that I will no longer follow any news about MoW from this point on.
  21. H.A.W.X.: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/vie...Clancys-H-A-W-X
  22. I am impressed! Congratulations Obsidian and Bethesda - this seems to be an all-around good decision. I am wondering, though, how is this going to work - is Bethesda the publisher and property licensor and Obsidian the developer, or are they co-developers and if so how will they divide the work (also won't it be inefficient to have two developers)? Also, how long has this been worked on already? Because if not long, is there really enough time to complete this and maintain quality/polish? Sorry if these questions have already been answered - I didn't read the whole thread.
  23. Yes, interesting info from the developers. I like the way the armor rules work.
  24. For some reason, my hope that the new secret project might be KOTOR 3 is being rekindled - the possibility of it at least does not seem as remote as it once did - perhaps LucasArts wants money both from the MMO and from a single-player game. Let's hope it is not a false hope!
  25. This. As much as I love D&D, I can't stand 4E (I don't even consider it to be D&D, but that's for a different discussion topic) and any new D&D CRPG would likely be forced to use that loathsome ruleset. Pathfinder would be a nice alternative. Well, it can't be NWN3, since Neverwinter doesn't exist in 4e. So I'm sure they'll call it something else. But it'll be intended to fill that market, I think as well. I do hope I'm wrong, I really have no intention of supporting 4e in any way, shape, or form. They can use the name as a franchise name regardless. After all, Baldur's Gate 2 had nothing to do with the city of Baldur's Gate, so it might be the same with Neverwinter Nights 3, or Icewind Dale or Baldur's Gate 3 - these are all just names they can place on any game in Forgotten Realms, though they might denote certain things about the franchise (NWN: toolset, IWD: combat, BG: scope - just some examples).
