Better Options you must be joking. If K3 is being done I hope that Chris Avellone is the writer and Josh Sawyer is the project lead. The only down side to this is Chris doesn't like to write romances. While I like David Gaider (Lead Writer @ Bioware) he doesn't hold a candle to Chris.

^ Yeah, but Chris is a smart, professional guy. If he needs to write a romance, I'm sure he's capable of going to town with it, even he doesn't enjoy writing it as much. I'm a 3d modeler who prefers Maya to Studio Max, but I can use both (I love analogies ).

While I wasn't thrilled with the Male Revan Bastila romance it was better then the "romances" in K2.

While I didn't like the direction Avellone took on K2, I think I should consider the risks that, with another shift on the writer, the story may suffer even more. Chris would be acceptable, the rest of the coompany wouldn't, however.

Ohhh and if you know where to look, yes, you can actually find overwhelming responses regarding the MMO.
obviously it's not being marketed now, lol

but you have to admit whatever marketing they choose, this won't fly all that well with the more mainstream non-MMO gamers. Anyone who's even interested will be wary since SWG crashed so badly...

Aww, I love bassie. She was cute, that romance plot always helped lift the mood if you did it right, teasing her all the time. You need stuff like that to keep the plot from getting opressive.

What I didn't like about Knights 1 was the cookie-cutter bad guys. Saul had some depth, but Malak and Bandon were pretty annoying. First time I played through I didn't even realize I had fought and killed Bandon until the end of the game because he had no depth or personality and nothing that made him even look different from other sith bosses.
Malak was, franky, obnoxious. You were never once intimidated by him, he just pissed you off and harassed you like a school-yard bully. Lame.

TSL's sith were amazing. Each one had a personality, a story (where necessary), personal goals and motivations and all three were very intimidating.

Malak had a story, but basically he WAS a school-yard bully...and with that bullies have a posse because they need to mask their own weakness. That's why he tried to kill Revan by having his ship firing at Revan's.

The thing about TSL is that the story ended like something you'd see on Sopranos, which is probably why so many say they like K1 much better. It had an ending and it satisfied the players.

I do think K1 had some faults that K2 fixed, but I'd rather not think about which one I liked or didn't, I'd rather think about the things the developers could do to fix any faults from K2.


Yesterday is history. Tomorrow, a mystery. Today is a gift...that is why it is called the present.

Actually, as there hasn't been any marketing yet, they might go about it completely differently than people are thinking, I always say, never assume. Don't be so smart mouthed next time, I was only stating fact.

Uh...The Soprano's ending was a random cut to black. So I really don't see what you're going for there.

you said they weren't marketing it now, and i gave the (obvious) answer. Why would they market when they haven't even officially announced it?

Would it be too much of a stretch to expect the game out next year? I know they haven't said practically anything about it, but if they're already getting testers for the game, it must be "done" to some extent...

All the rumors are placing it at an early '09 release (which could easily be pushed back to late '09)--not that you should trust rumors, mind you.

Could easily be pushed back to 2183 if they wanted. I just can't imagine the game being released past next year, if they are in the testing stage.

^ I think that's what Riccitiello said during an interview back in April: 2009/2010. I can't understand why EA's CEO would be dropping all these bombs, though. He obviously knows all of this (as well he should), but he must be pissing off LA big time.

i have a feeling his tenure as ceo has been cut drastically short, or EA's future contracts with LA have.

I'm sure he and BioWare have NDA agreements between them. Kind of silly to think he's giving all this info away without LA's consent.

Its possible something bad might happen to him, though its also possible that they are instead using this to their advantage. Give us tidbits, but nothing more;nothing too specific, make us want more and get people excited again.

Heh, that's exactly what I thought. No way is Obsidian working on an RTS game. Now, could this mysterious new RPG be K3? Please?

I don't see why it can't be. If they start work on it a little after AP, I mean work work, they can see it released after the MMO. They probably won't have it out before then but a little after I can see happening, espescially if story lines or knowledge can be learned in Kotor MMO and Kotor 3.


f K3 is being done I hope that Chris Avellone is the writer and Josh Sawyer is the project lead. The only down side to this is Chris doesn't like to write romances. While I like David Gaider (Lead Writer @ Bioware) he doesn't hold a candle to Chris.

If need be, I think Chris could do a great job. I've been thinking this for awhile now: We'll see Kotor 3 sometime in 2010 done by Obsidian and Avellone as the writer. I don't know why, actually, yes I do, Avellone always seemed like he would do an awesome job and actually WANTS to do it.

I think there is going to be a 'KotOR III' and 'MMORPG' Old Republic game. It is just a matter of time when they will come up with an idea. Until we hear any news, we will just have to put up with the 'MMORPG' Old Republic game news.

Well, we know that Obsidian is currently preparing for production of a new, undisclosed RPG project. This may be SPK3, though chances are slim.

I try to be optimistic. I think they'll make Knights III as well, because it's a popular IP that's really been the cream of the crop as far as LA published titles go. A successful series that doesn't have closure yet.

Personally, I don't think it needs closure, you can just keep making sequels!
