For my real game, I'm just being myself and I've ended up being pure lightside before I even made that final choice.

Well, sure I had my share of brushes with the Darkside, but the good outweighed the bad. That is me in real life too, so, guess I would make a great Jedi!

I am almost done, made that last choice as to which side to follow before dinner and might I say that was indeed one epic thing. Anyhow, since the one person I do stuff with is pissed at me because she's under the impression I'd rather play KotOR over talking to her (little sisters really are bad at relaying phone messages :mad: ) I won't be starting up a new game anytime soon unless that blows over.

But he will be pure evil! :D Let's all pretend those innocents are my lil sis and see the anger flow outta me! :p

i was 100% Dark Jedi type, but then at the end, i rejected the Dark Side and was like 60% good. it sucked. i spent most of the game with dual red sabers. after i got some goodie points, i felt guilty and changed to yellow.

its just too much fun being bad. you can make peope do things and give you money. plus conversations are more one sided when you tell people what to say.

i dont know how to write in the white box spoiler font, but at the end... making zaalbar kill mission was fun too.

08-14-2003, 01:12 AM
my first game i was about i darkside point away from being pure evil it is fun being evil when in real life you are so nice like me:D but then my game got erased so my new game is good then i am just going to be myself

08-14-2003, 03:14 PM
i wanted to be dark at first but i played the game and i was nice but now i need to lay down a can of whoopass
but do party members leave u if u turn dark

08-14-2003, 03:51 PM
No party members do not leave as you get dark they just try to get you back to light if you use the force to gain more money they will cation you but they will not leave you:lsduel:

I obtained the Ultimate Light Side after earning some Dark Points early one. It seemed harder to keep to the Light Side so I tried to achieve that goal. Although my character wore Dark Jedi robes and wielded a Red Lightsaber and Violet Lightsaber.
I'm starting a new game and plan to fall to the Dark Side this time.

08-14-2003, 10:57 PM
the only way to make people leave is at the end of the game. if you choose the dark path, then jolee and juhani will turn on you. then when you return to the ship, everyone else does.

08-15-2003, 01:48 PM
well i killed juhani so that wont be a problem:fett:

08-16-2003, 08:33 PM
If you are dark, then at the end you kill juhani, jolee and mission, you can also kill zaalbar if you choose to, or you can choose to keep him and convince him to kill mission as well.

08-16-2003, 09:06 PM
F@%& u guys are evil sumbitchs

08-17-2003, 01:58 AM
Dark Jedi Master, I love playing the dark side, you get to kill everyone and be arrogant about it, also rob people and then kill them HAHAHAHAHAHA
Also I just started over and I am trying to be light, not as fun though

08-18-2003, 06:01 AM
I started again as a Female Soldier. Trying to do all the light side stuff. I still "dable" in the Dark Arts though. (Gimmie some credits) And gotta gotta gotta have Force Lightning.

08-20-2003, 05:30 PM
I play as myself, and have just hit Tattooine. I'm already firmly on the Light Side. Most of the Dark Side choices seem so repulsive (though even THAT is a mild word for it) to me that I don't even have the curiosity to pursue them.

The Dark Side powers would be useful in combat, but like the stereotypical gamer chick I am, combat is not my central focus anyway. I do like the combat system, and think that the hack and slash aspect is great bin the context of the game, but I'm in it for the puzzle-solving aspects - I'd rather have a smart and persuasive character that does all right in combat rather than some full-out munchkin.

I did get one dark point by nailing Starkiller. That guy was a mad dog that needed to be taken out for everyone's safety, IMO.

It's still early in the game. Oh, and I do know about the plot twist. I got to see some spoilers when watching my bro in law play. Still doesn't make the Dark Side any more palatable.

And killing Mission? THAT'S the most disgusting thing I've heard of doing in the game! I LIKE that spunky little gal. (Ok, she reminds me a lot of my teenaged niece). I also like Juhani and Jolee...heck, I like all the party, even though Bastila behaves like a arrogant brat until she learns some humility.

08-20-2003, 06:26 PM

Dark Side. Why? To show all those weak underlings their natural place....at your FEET! To threaten with death arrogant Sith and then Force Persuade guard's into arresting THEM! To show the true power of the dark side to the republic prisoner by choking him to DEATH! And of course, for the ending. It's good, really liked it, but....


...I was expecting more. C'mon, that 30(?) Sith soldiers + some officers that You see when officialy taking back your position don't exactly make an ARMY(!) worth of praising a reborn Dark Lord of Sith Revan (missed anythin?).(Sigh) Well, cant have everything. But the "Fleet Emerging" movie (or so) was beautiful.

Women seem to be more ...compassionate than men, hence they are better at resisting the dark side ;)

Hon, my real-life politics and ideals make the concept of having a universe cowering at my feet REALLY unappealing. I'm a real "power to the people," anti-eliteist type, ESPECIALLY the self-desginated elites...on political boards, I test out as a Green, Socialist, or (rarely) Pacifist-Anarchist.

A Dark Lord seems a terrible existence - the universe cowers at your feet, but there is no one to trust - anger and bitterness and no joy. As many a Roman emperor found out, even sadism and decadance ring hollow quickly. There is no one to share a laugh or a meal with. No one that is glad to see you at the end of the day. The people you rule hate you and the universe itself shrieks with the same agony as your soul...

Not my style.

Of course, I also wince at several of the Jedi concepts, too. the Jedi seem so scared of themselves that they'd rather attempt to amputate half their soul rather than learn how to live with themselves. It's this that eventually destroys them, judging by Episode 2. They take kids from the cradle (before they even understand what the hell they're swearing to), cut them off from the entire universe for most of their life, forbid them love and/or underequip them for the messier aspects of being a sentient. By Ep 2, they're so cloistered that they've lost their connection to life (the Force) itself.

Frankly can't blame Anakin for going insane. He must have equated the cloistered life with the slavery of his old life. Heck, on many levels, he had more freedom as Watto's property than as a Padawan.

i prefer the role of Jolee. he seems to be middle of the road. doesn't subscribe to the Jedi Code. does as he sees fit.

08-23-2003, 03:29 AM
If you don't take the game seriously, the dark path is full of extremely funny moments.

The stuff that you choose to tell people can sometimes be so out of line and uncalled for that it simply makes you laugh. I remember one memorable moment where Jolee is going through this big long spill about something, and after it's over, one of the options you have is, "I hate you, old man." I laughed out loud, HARD, after I read that option!

It was there for NO reason at all! It had nothing to do with anything at all, other than giving you dark side points (not sure if it actually gives you points, I didn't select it in order to lengthen the conversation... I knew Jolee would try to get all philosophical and cool with me, as usual, if I tried to be funny with him).

Also, the sheer amount of times that you're able to say, "Time to die!" is breathtaking. I mean that in the most humorous way possible. The thought of someone as foolish as that is so, so funny.

I LOVE the dark path, because of its humor. Besides that, I think their ideas and philosophies are much more interesting than the light side ideals.

Granted, there are always holes in the dark side ideals... anyone with a good intellect could shoot down any reasoning of the sith. But, the reasoning behind the teachings of the sith are interesting to read, though they're far from impregnable (the light side ideals are next to infallable).

Both times I've played through the game, I've been a dark jedi, though.

Darkness is ALWAYS cooler than light. You get black robes instead of ... brown or khaki or whatever. Any color of lightsaber goes really well with the solid black robes.

Insanity is one of the coolest and most helpful force powers ever.

Plus, your looks change as a dark jedi. On the light path, you keep the same face throughout the whole game, and that's very bad in my opinion, as the game's pre-made faces aren't all that great, anyway. You can look pretty downright scary by the time you max out your dark side points.

Plus, the dark side jedi have access to more dark side only items than the light side jedi have light side only.

In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't make too much difference what side you pick, as long as you're having fun.

Do I disagree with just about EVERYTHING that puts you on the dark path? YES! I think a person who acted like I act in KotOR would need to be locked away for years, either in an insane asylum or in death row. Ha.

However, I find the light path TRULY boring and not nearly as entertaining as the dark.

That's my choice. Dark side wins.

08-23-2003, 04:58 AM
I'm Dark because it's the true power of the Force.

Besides, I'm sick of the Light Side winning all the time.

P.S. I think a person who acted like I act in KotOR would need to be locked away for years, either in an insane asylum or in death row. Ha.

Errr.... Y-yes! I umm... I agree.

*Catch's the first plane to Antartica*

I have now done the game with both, light and dark, and i would have to say that I like the dark side better. Reason for this is that i can kill anyone, choke them and they just have cooler force powers, IMO.

But the light side is cool, cause you can get the warm fuzzies from being Mr. Nice Guy. Not my cup of tea, at least for the video game world. I like carnage aqnd lots of it, for no reason other then to have it. But over all I love the game so I will keep playing it

08-23-2003, 06:23 PM
Anyone else play the Dark Side for a really long time, then notice yourself being a little more evil in real life?

08-23-2003, 09:04 PM
Oh yes...

08-23-2003, 10:16 PM
i noticed it at mcdonalds the other day. try to screw up my order!

"I'd like a number 5. [Force Persuade] and you wanna supper size it for me, right?"

I guess that'd be a good thing to have if you worked there.

I found myself behaving a bit more charitibly after playing Light Side - Stopping by the side of the road to help a stranded mom and kids, tipping the night waitress a bit better, being a little more tolerant of the lost customers on the phones at work (I'm in tech support).

Though, after listening to the Twi'lek teacher on Korriban, I have to shake myhead at both the Jedi and the Sith - they could teach each other so much if the Sith weren't out to destroy everything and the Jedi weren't so terrified of their shadow selves. Dark mirrors of each other - both are horribly ignorant of how the other thinks.
