Try 8,000 of them...

It'd have to be a disc. Mainly because I like to physically own things that i've paid for.

Plus, then I don't to worry about reinstalling.

Disk, no contest. DVD, please.

It's a pain to download full new games, I do it only when there's no other alternative.

Indeed. The download limits in my country force me to be careful about how much I download, and downloading games, especially newer ones, would take a whole chunk out of my download volume, considering they need DVD's because of their size. I also like to have the DVD box on my shelve.

disk, it just seems a little more convenient in some sense of practicality of having it be tangible rather than straight digital.

I don't really care. Disk is all well and good, but an MMO has online interaction, which I find very fun.


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.

me: disk. why? because i always have to have my favorite stuff on physical cds. even food and drink.
and preferably cd-roms. dvds are all well and good, but generally cds are faster.
and cds would have more artwork on it
but i doubt it would be cd. if it was, itd probably be 5-8 discs. :
its about time they did something like stick games on flash drives! it would be more convenient. like have a 'game ring: a keychain ring with heaps of usb games on it. buuut it would be chunky, and it would be a whole lot easier for some grunt to mug you and grab your $500 gaming collection.

bring on the holographic storage devices! they look so awesome! and we can call them holo cubes as homage to star wars! (due 2010 i think... unlike cds they hold data all inside the volume of the cube. 1 cubic inch=1.5tb i think. not sure)
FYI: did you know that the main mode of data storage changes ever ten years? (average)



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.

There isn't anything that forbids a MMO to be distributed on a tangible media. Take Guild Wars as an example.

yeah i saw it in a book. it had a really neat looking picture of it... i found this on google:http://common.ziffdavisinternet.com/...ges/_HOLO1.GIF
it was the most similar one to the picture i found. the one i saw had blue lasers and the contraption looked a bit cooler.
i found an article on it on howstuffworks.com:http://computer.howstuffworks.com/ho...hic-memory.htm
think about it: its about as new as cds were to people when floppies ruled.
cd= hundreds of floppies. holocube= thousands of cds. :
can you imagine games that are 10terabytes big as im sure they would be soon?



mfw I read the Revan novel

Right, which is exactly what I want. A SW mmo from Bioware. I don't care when in the timeline it is. Though if it does happen to be in the Old Republic timeline, that will be just fine with me.

Heres what I want.
FIRST ABOVE ALL OTHER THINGS.
KotOR 3 with awesome story with no cut content. A full perfect finish to the awesome trilogy.
SECOND
If people want more KotOR they should go back to the Mandalorian Wars and (create a new trilogy set durring Mandolorian Wars) we should be able to see how it all went down and stuff. New character. Infact I wouldnt mind if we got to play as a Mandalorian.
THIRD
An MMO might be fun if it goes the right way and LucasArts is forbidden to request change from the maker. (this is what happened to SWG, LucasArts wanted to make a game that could beat WoW so they forced SOE to screw everything up)

Hello. I think the game should be online for the sake of the future. Meaning since so many things are online, I think KOTOR should have an online game too.

DVD wins this (if this is a match). Anyway, I think people will like SPRPG KOTOR 3 more than MMORPG KOTOR 3. SPRPG KOTOR 3 FTW.

DVD for inital content, servers for updates and patches and for the live content.

This is exciting indeed.
