  1. The biggest surprises won't be officially announced. (By that, I mean Baldur's Gate 3.)
  2. I know that there should be a second option if you're female, something like "Do you understand men?" IIRC, I think you need more influence with her to get anything down this branch. (I think she talks about Hanharr if you do it right...?)
  3. Post above = THANK YOU. Because the U.N. doesn't take enough action, it's forced America to become the Dirty Harry of the world. (Not that the Security Council has helped it any.) Where is the U.N. in Africa? In South America? The U.N. has become the League of Nations of its time: a nice gesture, but in reality powerless.
  4. There was a conversation option for it? EDIT: Oh, nevermind, thanks. How odd. I should play the game as a male somtime.
  5. A little OT, but please, someone enlighten me: is Mical the Disciple's true name? I had full influence with him and never found out.
  6. You know, if they ever took a vote to force China to submit to government inspections, China would veto it. Ditto for Russia. The Security Council is a relic left over from WWII that should have been abolished (or at least, refined) years ago. And I have to agree: the UN hasn't taken a strong enough stand on human rights in the past twenty years. It's like they refuse to aid Africa, like they've given up because it's just such a mess.
  7. You have to bring in the bread somehow. If that means working for a home insurance company in the WTC, so be it. I'm not proud, I'd do it; my mom worked at the WTC for awhile. The immigrants and the lower/middle class who worked there did not in any way deserve what happened. They had more in common with the common man in the middle east than the American rich.
  8. But we're talking about September 11th specifically, here. I'm not saying he wasn't a bad guy. His government, however, wasn't the one most closely linked to the attacks. I don't believe any of the hijackers were Iraqis, either.
  9. So, is this a terrorist too?
  10. True. This time, unfortunately, we don't seem to have bombed the right government. Do you know that bin Laden himself was trained by Americans to do their dirty work in defeating the Soviets in Afghanistan? Do you know where all those weapons first came from? Do you know that American and Saudi oil money is all tied up in this? No, it was not a foreign operation. Really? Tell that to the South Americans getting killed down there by death squads. That's not terrorism?
  11. That's tough luck, man. Come live in America. It's not mandatory here yet. (But really, Finland has an army? ) Guess who gets shot at a lot of the time? People who are not officers. And what good does that man on the moon do me? NOTHING. V-5 rockets haven't bridged the wealth gap, funded my college education, or provided me with free reliable health care. Or even a free lunch. Come on, really!
  12. You know, I have a feeling that if we all lived in the third world countries that actually did get bombed, we'd be a whole lot less blase, myself included.
  13. George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.
  14. Well, that's easy to say when you're not the one getting DRAFTED. Well, you just go and join it then. I'm quite comfortable living on the scenic east coast. While you're at it, read Johnny Got His Gun if you haven't already. So it's not your fault when you kill innocent people. You just did what they told you to. SUBJECTIVE MORALITY GO
  15. If I had high speed I'd download it, but alas...
  16. Just read the Gamespy review, which has some interesting tidbits (and journalisitc "quality" slightly higher than that of IGN's): Looks like they listened to the fans. I'm curious to see a neutral ending. If they pulled it off as well as Gamespy makes it sound, I'd be happy. OMG AAAH! (w00t) Ugh, I'm getting horrible Fable flashbacks...
  17. I apologize; I didn't mean to sound so confrontational. It's just that so many older gamers blame younger ones for the trend of "dumbing down" games. It's kind of like that chauvinistic stuff some gamers pull on women, like they don't know enough to play well. (I'm sorry, I've just encountered both in the past.)
  18. Because you should've heard the speculation going around the Bioware forums about Revan's voice. A sampling: "Wait, it sounded English! Revan is from Coruscant!" "No way! It is so an American accent!" and on and on. In case you had a higher wisdom versus awareness or vice-versa. Probably something that was missed or left out of Q/A--more trouble than it's worth to fix. Diplomats/Republic personages, I believe. There's a datapad somewhere saying something to the effect that you were the exception to the rule. Magic. Regional accent? He made the promise to
  19. Wait...I'm not 20 yet, therefore I'm not a real cRPG fan. Nevermind that I've been playing Baldur's Gate, Fallout, et al. since I was 12. Oh my, I've become a conundrum! So, therefore, I'm a teenage Xbox player. But I didn't click through the dialogue--the reason I bought the game in the first place was because I was impressed with Chris Avellone's work. AND I ENJOYED IT. I'll say it: despite its bugs, plot holes, and rushed ending, KOTORII IS AWESOME in my viewpoint. Let me think of other games where that happens...wait, it's almost every RPG on the market. Name one game with no Fe
  20. This one was unintentional: On GOTO's yacht, there's that room filled with turrets. So I go in there with Kreia and Mira, constantly casting Destroy Droid. Eventually I run out of energy shields, so I run back into the adjoining room. I'm standing there, having Kreia cast Heal, when suddenly I hear blaster fire. I turn the camera around, and amazingly, a TURRET HAD FOLLOWED ME OUT of the room. I was unable to play for a few minutes after that. :cool:
  21. This happened to me as well, but really due to me being kind of forgetful--I had forgotten to click on the dead mercs in the room where you find Disciple because I reloaded, so when I went to the cave nothing was there. If you have any suspicion that's what might have happened, go back to the Academy and try it.
  22. I agree that in conventional writing they are often a crutch used to hide poorly thought out plots/characters. If the whole story turns around the use of flashbacks, though, and it's not just a cheap gimmick, it can be a very interesting literary tactic.
  23. Someone has to be the Biodork...I'll take the fall. My first cRPG was Baldur's Gate.
  24. wow, I love the more American type look as opposed to the manga style so popular lately...one suggestion, if I may? To make your females more feminine, you might want to thin out their eyebrows, as right now the eyebrows for your males and females are the same thickness, which is not true of the female figure.
  25. Hmm...I had full influence with both Atton and the Disciple and never got those...ARGH ? Disciple can't be in your party if you're male.
