  1. Kreia notes that the Jedi and Sith before the time of KOTOR made the Jedi during KOTOR and the movies look like children playing with toys. Thats enough clues to who is the best. No one from the movies or games, but someone from a time we may never see.


    And George Lucas says the opposite of that, so who cares about what Kreia has to say? :nuke:


    Apart from that, how could Kreia talk about the characters from the movies, when those happened almost 4000 years after her death?

    She was obviously talking about everyone until KOTOR, though I don't think that she was all that consistent in her comments. If Revan was like the heart of the force, how would the ancient Jedi and Sith be that far ahead of everyone?


    History always tends to glorify people who are long gone. I'd say Kreia is kind of guilty of that as well.


    This does make sense, considering that the supposed "Grand Masters" of the Jedi from KOTOR II are pushovers (except possibly Vrook).

  2. Is the story in Two Worlds 2 any good?

    judging by the intro and the first two areas, it's crap.

    a wizard captures a powerful demon and somehow traps it in a human body (some girl) and with this new ally usurps all power in the land. you play the girl's brother, who's instrumental to wizard's plans. a group of orcs storms the palace and helps you escape. you get told that there's a prophecy (wow, what a surprise) and you're a big part of it.


    so this faction sends you on a quest to figure out how the wizard became so powerful, and you naturally want to save your sister.

    I think it's a very poor story, for a first chapter, that is. maybe it gets better.


    the game itself is beautiful, though. a very good engine. the only problem is character animation. the hero look like a cripple when running :ermm:


    So its like a changed up Fable? :x:x:nuke:

  3. Why is it outside the mental capacities of NK to negotiate a reasonable solution? These days common sense is rarer than capable presidents. THESE MEANS YOU Barack Hussein Obama!!! and bush.

  4. Currently alternating between CoD4 on Veteran, Mass Effect (didn't see the whole


    thing coming), and BioShock.


    Hey stupid question: After you install a game to Hard Drive on 360, does delete from HD uninstall it, or just delete the whole game, data and all?

  5. The Bible teaches Christians many things; the ethic of reciprocity, the principles of charity, the importance of being earnest. But it seems as though the religion has been twisted in the interest of the rich, the powerful, and the conquerors, and in general the most unkind and unjust sort of people.


    Jesus teaches that to be rich is to be wrong.


    In Luke, a version of Jesus's famous "Blessed are the poor" speech appears in Chapter 6. However, this version (presumably inspired by God himself) includes an additional note. In Luke 6:20, Jesus says "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God." But in a sharp contrast, he goes on to say in 6:24, "But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort."


    This is, of course, not the only time that Jesus speaks ill of the rich! Another story comes when Jesus is asked by a man to arbitrate a dispute over inheritance in Luke, chapter 12. He begins by saying "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." He tells a story of a man who stores up much for himself on this earth, believing he is now set for life. But God appears and says "You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?"


    The very next story Jesus tells is to consider the animals and plants of the earth. They do not store up for themselves, but the Lord still feeds them. So, he says: "Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."






    Umm.... Sorry for getting to a response so late....


    But, I have a Bible in my lap, and That's not the impression that I get. I get the impression that Jesus means that the rich are not instantly damned, but they (generalization) focus so much on their money that they do not accept salvation.


    Yes, I am a Baptist.
