TOR got some competition

Not sure this is the right place so a moderator can move it if not. I'm just sooooo excited.

We have heard our fans and we are listening. Obsidian Entertainment will develop the continuing story of Knights of the Old Republic and will incorporate the storytelling of past Knight of the Old Republic games with the future release of the BioWare developed The Old Republic. We feel this is a logical step and is what our fans expect from LucasArts.

Come on, you can do better than that. It'd take an actual fake article for me to almost believe this.

April Fools? What a cruel, cruel joke.....

Maybe "We have heard our fan" was spelled correctly. What they mean by "listening Obsidian" is anyone's guess, however.

Aside from it being AFD, I'dve dismissed it at the point where it said..."listening to our devoted fan base......."

QFT. If you are going to attempt to troll with an April Fool's fabricated story, at least try and make it plausible. The notion that LF/LA would make any decision based on fan feedback is laughable. Unless it was them listening to feedback and doing the exact opposite.

Then the thread got the desired effect at least from you.

The forum does not have to be serious business all the time.

Astor is the only one that caught the first line gives the entire thing away. Why would I need a Moderator to move this thread?

I love the games of "Lusasarts."




Considering trying out (or returning to) SWTOR? You may as well go through my link and help get me some SWTOR referral points!

Well, all I knows is that I was thinking "Well, what would be a fairly standard AF's prank this year?" and the answer I got was, "KotOR III announced and to be developed by Obsidian."

Too easy, Mimi.

Okay at first I was suckered in but then I second guessed myself and decided, nah, I would have heard of it through my other links. Nice way to pull the wool over the eyes.

"listening to our devoted fan base"
"wonderful games [such as] Alpha Protocol"
"we are listening"
"a logical step ... is what our fans expect from Lucasarts"

These parts are implausible.

A well thought up joke. My emotions so badly wanted to believe it. In fact, I think I let myself for a few seconds just to see how good it would feel and I felt great.

Well, back to reality!
