Contradicting statements?


Recommended Posts

1. i've heard that the gameplay length in kotor2 will be aprox. the same as in kotor? but mike gallo(i think it was him) also stated that they will add more side quests to kotor2. won't that mean a bigger, and longer, game?

 

2. this amnesia thing. chris avallone said that there was no amnesia in the game. however, gamespot reports that

 

"You wake in the medical bay, and the last thing you remember is blacking out in a Republic warship. How you wound up there--and why the heck you're in your skivvies--are mysteries you'll need to sort out"...

 

loss of memory? did i hear anyone mention amnesia??????????????????? <_< :o;)

As I understand the last minute changes, you wake up as a jedi bride after being in a coma from a head wound.

 

Then you kill a bunch of people.

1.side quests are not mandatory, they are aside of the quest, not a part of the story mean theres more to do while going on a quest with the minimum of finished things ending the game, all the rest make it more expanded on rather than u need the key, big whoop i can shoot that little bitch in the mean time

 

 

2 amnesia, first i heard, but hell ur outta touch with the force, may gain your ideas of it on your way back to greatness

Amnesia whipes out part or all of your memories.

If you black out you will remember everything up to the that specific point. Chris' statement is still correct, there is no amnesia.

actually, any kind of memory loss is amnesia.

 

if you drank too much last night, for instance, you may have amnesia for the period you were too drunk to remember.

 

which is different from not being able to remember because you were actually unconscious.

 

although, after some heavy drinking, it's probably a bit of both.

Amnesia doesn't exclusively mean ALL memories are gone, get a dictionary.

Kinda reminds of "Kill Bill" in some way...

It may simply be the person playing is ignorant of what has happened up till this point. Not the player character. They might have been saying they have idea why you're in your skivvies and why the Ebon Hawk is like that. Or as someone said the PC may have been knocked unconscious and awakens. That's not memory loss and therefore not amnesia.

yeah if you are comatose then you wouldn't have any conscious memory of events that took place while you were out. so it wouldn't be amnesia in the sense of revan having all of his conscious memories wiped away. also i think they're explaining the force thing like muscle atrophy. your muscles still work you just have to retrain them and strengthen them to work like they used to.

I'm more inclined to believe a developer of a game than a magazine...at least I'd hope a developer knows more about there game than a magazine.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

"blacking out" to me, kinda implies falling unconscious. The failure to retain memory of events that happen when you're unconscious doesn't equate to amnesia.

 

The player character in KOTOR 1 didn't have amnesia either. He/she had all of his/her memories. They were just fake.

There is a small but profound difference between amnesia and blackouts. Amnesia is loss of memory, unconciosness is not getting any new ones. Sort of like the difference between the Erase and the Pause button ;)

 

That way, you still know everything you've ever known before. Some events might just have transpired in the meantime while you were busy gathering Z's

Agreed.

 

The PC has nothing to forget during the time he's asleep. Read over the sentence again - it says the character doesn't know how they got to where they are at the beginning of the game. One explanation is amnesia, the other is that THEY WEREN'T EVEN CONSCIOUS, and thus totally INCAPABLE of forming memory, and thus incapable of LOSING memory. Do you form memories of everything that happens when you sleep? No. But if that makes you define SLEEPING as having amnesia, well... I don't know what to say to you.

Amnesia, by the dictionary, is the LOSS of memories. Personally, I think it makes more sense for your character to not be pre-defined and for the PC to have some control over who they are. I think of it less as a plot gimmick, and more as a way to allow the game (within reason) to be linear, but still follow a plotline and allow the player to roleplayer their PC as they wish. This is, after all, a game.

As for plot device: well, kinda. Anything you do in a plot can be called a plot device. We'll have to see what they do with it.

Seeing as how we have multiple Sith lords, you may be on to something here.

 

We'll know if we get attacked by a Dark Jedi in a schoolgirl outfit.

I made this half-pony half-monkey monster to please you

But I get the feeling that you don't like it

What's with all the screaming?

You like monkeys, you like ponies

Maybe you don't like monsters so much

Maybe I used too many monkeys

Isn't it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

See Ivan the Terrible's irritating sig animation.

You're off my Christmas card list.
