What do you guys want to see in the upcoming KOTOR 2???

As for me I want to be able to have Lithorians on your team...AND THEY MUST BE JEDI'S!!! HAHAHA what a sight that would be. I have seen the new videos and screen shots and it seems that the graphics seem almost unchanged but im sure the fighting will be smoother...Oh and a rumor i heard...with full two weapon mastery, lightsaber mastery and equiping a double sided lightsaber you can do some CRAZY darth maul moves like STAB PEOPLE BEHIND YOU WITHOUT LOOKING AT EM!!!! (instantly froth's at the mouth) I also heard you can do that double kick move that maul uses. Oh and i heard that you can maybe pick up objects and throw em at your enemies.

Who cares about all of that....all i need are Lithorians that can use force storm....

i'm actually pretty satisfied with what i've seen already. much of the minor issues i had with kotor have been addressed, and they've added so much more. so, other than the release date, i'm a pretty happy camper. :D

He meant an Ithorian.

And I'll be satisfied if the story is good and there's no problems with Radeons...

Thanks, though I am not sure whether I want a Jedi Ithorian...

IIRC, there was something posted in the Bioware tech forum (the ATI sticky) stating that the new Catalyst driver (scheduled for November) will address the last of the ATI Radeon issues. That's the only thing that kept me from ditching my 9800 Pro and going for one of the new 6800 series nVidia cards. Let's hope this pans out :D

Luckily, I never suffred from Catalyst drivers problems although I have an ATI 9800 pro too :)

What I hope with Kotor 2 is that the story is as good as it was in Kotor 1. I would like more dialogues with the npcs and more emphasis on side quests. I really hope they did not sacrifice the story and the side quests just to add more goodies to the game. For me, new moves and items are cool but they are secondary, especially since this is a RPG.

lukeiamyourdad

You're just lucky. Not every Radeon users had problems but many did.

Then again :fist:

Aleggy
10-21-2004, 03:26 PM
yeah i would like more sidequests but what i would also like to see is the sidequest effecting the main story

i.e. if you do a sidequest for a hutt and later on the hutt or another hutt is able to do you a favour in return that helps your progress

or something like that if you understand what i mean :D :D

That sums up my thoughts nicely as well. I just want a worthy successor to K1, & from what I've heard & seen I should get my wish.

It would have been nice to be able to play as an Alien this time. A humanoid alien that is. I mean, there's no romantic involvement this time, why not?

or something like that if you understand what i mean :D :D I think I know what you mean. It seems that OE has put a lot of emphasis on tying decisions to the storyline. I think BW kinda did that with KotOR, but the degree of complexity seems as though it's been kicked up a notch by OE.

Once again I agree with FiEND, who is agreeing with Darth333! :D

With OE's employees backgrounds I don't see much of a problem in KOTOR: TSL being a worthy successor to KOTOR. ;)

so you get to play your own right hand man lol should be fun i wonder if you'll get asked by other characters what it was like to work under revan lol maybe thats how they'l subtly question you at the beginning to see how you finished kotor lol you never know what these programmers are thinking :D but i think thats a good thing lol :D

FiEND_138
10-23-2004, 04:24 AM
Well, thats some pretty good thinking there CaptainSkye & Aleggy. Thats an angle I haven't even thought of. It would be a nice subtle way to go about the questioning without being blatantly obvious. Of course that would have been before/during his/her fall to the DS, so I'm not really sure how it could work with mind wiped Revan........story wise & everything. It could cover the male/female thing, but not much else. A good idea non the less.


& shouldn't this be over at the Tourist Bureau?

i am enjoying the idea that i get to play my own characters right hand man after my original character has died unfortunately this isnt doing my addiction to kotor any good

i actually managed to restrain myself and not play kotor for a few months i used these forums as a way of coping and to satisfy my lightsaber lust i played jedi knight jedi academy but it just didn't hit the spot and i'm back to playing kotor again i've just finished a game on my pc without mods and have added a mod allowing me to be a jedi from the start and to skip the endire spire bit

what can i say i'm hooked

Well if you get yourself one of those fragile Neon bladed lightsabers, you can almost fool yourself into thinking you have a real one for just a second when you turn them on in a dark room. :D

Oh, the flowing robes. That is seriously enough for me. As long as they keep the story up to the same standards set by the first one, I'm going to be just fine. Now that one of your party NPCs has a wrist-mounted rocket and dart launcher, making one for a Boba Fett (or maybe a Kamino poison dart launcher for Jango) MOD.

my pal in philidelphia got to play the demo of KOTOR 2 over the weekend. He entered a contest that required a two page typed essay about how much you love games. He got second place out of about 200 entries. The top 3 got to go to a PUBLIC E3 in Newyork only for people who won these contests around the east coast. Apparently they kept it under very good wraps because close to nobody knew about it. E3 rented out a office buliding floor in newyork and set up games there. Mike got to play a very good demo of Halo 2...he said it makes you want to never leave the controler out of your grasp. He got to play some other new demos like Ratchet and Clank Up your arsenal, and KOTOR 2. He said there was about 20 or so games there and he said these were the best choices. LOL he said there was like 3 WW2 games...(that genre is so overplayed).

He mostly played Halo 2...but he said the demo of KOTOR 2 was exquisite. He said the fighting was seemless and you can attack multiple people around you with some attacks instead of just one person. The cool thing is that he got to play a completly different demo than the people did at the private E3. He started on Tatooine as a dark jedi master (consular). He said that the new force crush is awesome along with a new addition to consulars. Consulars get MASTER lightsaber throw. He says it goes to multiple people but it hits more times and harder than advanced.

Oh and he said that he entered to get a copy of Halo 2 10 buissness days before anyone else....he got 26th place out of 30 in a halo 2 match...He sucks lol. He also tried to KOTOR 2...he had to kill 50 tusken raiders in 10 mins....He said nobody did....everyone...EVERYONE died. LoL it was a joke he says..."You fight like 3 at a time for the first 2 mins while in the dunes like in KOTOR 1 but then OUT OF (explicit) NOWHERE you get attacked by 5 Holy and Elite. LOL even as a jedi master he got schooled. He said that one guy got to the final 8 Raiders but the FInal 8...All come at the same time LOLOLOL. Ouchies.

He also said the Consular now looks like they suck with lightsabers...Their attacks are rough and are panicked. Force lightning looks better...in the demo he played one of the tuskens have forcelightning...dont ask me why.

Anyways he had a blast....he says if you wish to participate in the public E3 you have to keep a good watch on the papers.

I want the combat to flow a lot better in kotor2, because in kotor1, you would hit someone with your saber or whatever, then stop for a while, then hit again, so i hope theyve improved on that :)

10-29-2004, 01:46 PM
That's impossible. It's still turn based.

10-29-2004, 06:32 PM
It's turn based people, turn based. Off course there's a wait time it's either for your turn to finish or your enemy's one.

Hopefully the FPS people will learn the difference between FPS and RPG's someday.

As lukeiamyourdad stated SW KOTOR and SW KOTOR:TSL are turn based RPG's not FPS that is why there is a pause in the combat, it will not change, nor should it ever change, in RPG's combat occurs in turns and through a particular order of initative.

ok i will try to explain what they are saying

have you ever played trumps

well in trumps on your go you choose a card that you hope will win the round and then wait and watch the others choose there card to battle yours as they each try to win the round and all you can do is sit and wait until its your next turn

rpg battling is a similar principle your player uses there attack and then your oponent does there's, thats why there's a gap and you have to wait.

if your still having difficulty understanding the turn based attacks then play pokemon on a gameboy and it will be even more frustrating but you will understand what we mean:D

Final Fantasy's isn't a mix of real-time and turn base while KotOR is. If you want frustration, try Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced. A battle can last an hour.
