  1. I recall playing the original Divine Divinity many years ago. I enjoyed the game quite a lot as I recall. Particularly one of the later moments struck me as rather funny and not something I'd expected to see in a game at that time. Minor though it was.
  2. You know with him ALL the characters from the trailers will be in the game now, so you could say that the circle is now complete. Satele, Malgus, Shae Vizla, Jace Malcom, hell even T7 was on the trailers. The ones we'll probably never see are the ones that died in the trailers or before the game came out like Vindican, Ven Zallow, Eleena Daru, etc. Why wasn't the dude on the game before? I hear the actor that played in on the trailers is actually very high profile for them to give him a role, I wonder who will be voicing him now, the someone else. That could explain it. We'll prob
  3. Ok, with all the being said I think the discussion on these topics has run its course, I guess we can discuss the upcoming expansion, Knight of the Fallen Empire. I'm surprised it took them this long to put in that smuggler guy given he was in one of the promo trailers way back. Aside from him I wonder what other companions we'll be getting and hopefully they'll give me a chance to 'accidentally' shove Lord Scourge out the nearest airlock... That and I still don't get how we end up frozen in carbonite.
  4. Good thing I didn't say combat was unimportant then. Videogames rely on more factors that books and movies to do. If one suffers then it'll drag the whole thing down, but sometimes one aspect can manage to carry a game through to the end for some. Not sure I entirely agree, but now we're going in circles as far as I can tell. We'll just agree to disagree. Fair enough.
  5. They only work well with a very good writer onboard. The genre they're in may make it harder or easier perhaps, but it can't escape that. I wouldn't call Mephy and Shady forces of nature either given they are established as perfectly sentient with their own goals and motivces. All of which they follow through on. Even Nihilus is still a person albeit one thats being consumed by his own hunger. Fighting monsters is fun, but they're just animals in the end. If thats all the opposition I have then thats a tad boring in the long run. Lets leave the DA2 debacle out of this thread. It wo
  6. The Darkspawn are necessary, in a movie maybe having a villain like Loghain is enough, but in a game you need someone you can fight constantly, and you cant fight Loghain himself every 5 minutes, right? Also some of the things that made Loghain good was that he was against the Darkspawn just like you, he just wanted to deal with them his own way and had no faith in the king or the wardens. I made the reference to Yoda because while playing the Jedi Consular, she doing some very advanced Telekinetics since chapter 1 and she was doing it in cutscenes, even some Sith when they witness what sh
  7. Well maybe you're right about Nihilus, it's just that when I interacted with The Empeor in Ziost, well I saw a lot of potential since an actor can give more personality than a soundboard, there are soundboard characters in SWTOR and they get old REAL FAST. In an Sci Fantasy Epic you kinda need both kind of villains, you need the down to earth human villains and the looming threat, force of nature villains, take Dragon Age: Origins, one of the best RPGs done by bioware, the human villain is Loghain, he betrays you and the king, and he sends assassins after you all the time, but he has his r
  8. I agree that The Emperor comes off as "Muahaha I am the Evhulz" villain, although better characterized than Nihilus since he was interpreted by an actor with experience in horror films, that gave him a bit more personality and flavor, the problem is that we never get to know his character. From my point of view as a Sith Inquisitor the first time I get to "meet" The Emperor and talk to him was when I got to lvl 60, in an expansion that was released 3 years after the game came out! And it's the same case for pretty much every other class except the Knight and the Warrior, pretty disappointe
  9. I don't think anyone in the empire knew the true nature of the Emperor, except maybe those that were closer to him. As far as they know he was the one that saved them from annihilation and lead them on rebuilding their empire pretty much from scratch. Considering the guy so far hasn't really done anything that another Sith hasn't already done, I doubt they would've cared if he hadn't made it blatantly clear what he intended to do during the SoR climax. The only outstanding thing in his portfolio is his plan for the galaxy after all. Everything else about him reminds me of what o

  11. I dunno, the Sith society they created seemed pretty damn implausible to me. The sheer amount of scheming, backstabbing and evil laughing betrayals in the MMO was baffling, I dunno how the Sith could get anything done at all. The stories do take place over a long period so it probably doesn't happen quite as often as it looks. Probably more in line with how often it happened in real life regimes.
  12. *eye roll* HA! Good Fun! Keep in mind I'm referring to Sion and Nihilus, I know for a fact that most Sith from the Sith Empire would react with disgust to such inhuman monstrosities and also I say they are a mockery of Siths because Avellone implied that was the intent when these characters were created, Sion and Nihilus are how he sees Force Users who are devoted to the force (Dark Side in this Case) stripped of humanity and individuality. Now that I think about it, I don't remember any likable Force User NPC from Kotor 2, they are well written, and memorable, but they all are ki

  14. He can go <Censored!> himself for all I care. He should be happy we dropped the death penalty like a hot potato and be satisfied he's not put in a spot where he'll be killed by other prisoners the moment they get an opportunity.
  15. She looks too scrawny to pull off the Wonder Woman look in my opinion. As for her acting I can't say. I've never seen a movie where she showed up(at least that I know of).
