Making the game harder

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here so I don't know if this has been talked about in depth before but meh, I'm gonna talk about it anyway.

 

I've not finished my first play through yet (still have korriban to do) but I have found it quite easy. I chose to play a sentinel (now a watchman) and its still been quite straight-forward. Given what I've read about the other classes I know I've picked the 'weakest' class for combat/force, yet still I've perhaps only been challenged once.

 

Ok so lets cut to it. Lets make the game hard. I did the same thing with KOTOR so I'm gonna list some challenges.

 

 

1) Solo it, aside from parts where you are forced to take a party

2) The no equipment (other than armour), stims, shields, upgrades playthrough

3) No force, lightsabers playthrough (not sure how feasable this is)

4) All of the above? (w00t)

 

I'd like to refine the ideas a bit so lets hear your thoughts!

I think people have tried some of them. At least I've heard about a 'dancer's outfit only' playthrough.

If there is a mod for it, I think playing the whole game as the Remote would be fun (or not).

 

Welcome to Obsidian, btw.

Play with your eyes closed.

The ultimate challenge >_<

 

I've always thought the easiest way to make the game harder would be to put it on hardest difficulty setting, then solo it all the way through. I have always thought soloing hard, so that would be good enough for me :huh:.

Sometimes, with unarmed combat, the people your PC is fighting with tends to do backward flips. Actually makes K2 look slightly like a game involving martial arts. Weird though...

Alternatively you could try playing a harder game. Who would have thought?

A good way to make the game challenging is to set the Exile's Intelligence to 18 or higher and modify only that attribute, fight unarned, and wear no armour.

Difficulty: Going through the game without leveling, staying at level 1.

You're being serious. It is a bit like the first round with the Echani.

Does that include Rapid Shot

at the start of the game?

That’s not the point. I thought I had made my intentions clear, seemingly not with you. I enjoy the KOTOR series; I just want my next play though to be a little more challenging.

This game was easy enough for me to complete unarmed.

Why dont you try it?

 

I am considering either a solo play though or a no items/basic equipment play through. The unarmoured idea strikes me as too easy.

Thats pretty impressive playing all the way through the game unarmed, i'm not sure id be able to do that. Sure the game is easy, but theres points in the game where i find im quite low on Items like medpacs,so they would get used a lot if i were unarmed. :blink:

 

Solo playthrough does sound good though, although there is a lot of parts where you cant actually go solo through for various reasons :(.

Unarmed playthrough should be easy enough, especially with the Sith Lord class. You are already unstoppable with force powers.
