You're missing out on a great game, then, ending aside. Despite the ending, it was still loads better than the first, and if you liked the first, you're doing yourself a disservice not playing the second.

I hope to never again play a MMO that isn't first and foremost balanced for Player VS Player.

If they make a balanced PVP game then I'd love to give it a try.

Man, that's killing me. Is it compatible with the 360 like the first one is?

Of course. Apparently it's severely buggy on the 360, though. A lot of backwards compatible games are. But I keep my old Xbox around so I don't have to worry about it.

I was a better play on PC in my opinion, the Xbox had horrendous load times for everything, and since you basically have to save when you tie your shoe in that game, it was a pain.

Great interview: Link

Quote:
One thing that we don't want to have happen in our game is the situation where you get a bunch of players together to beat up one guy. That's just not very heroic and it's something that we don't want to have happen in our game. We're looking for much more heroic battles where you're the group that's outnumbered. If you think about the movies, the heroes are the ones that are heroic because they're fighting against the odds.


Quote:
Every class in our game is heroic. If you look at the universe, heroic characters are able to really give the Jedi a challenge every time. Jango Fett and Boba Fett are two great example. Jango Fett is able to take out a Jedi in the Attack of the Clones movie - he may get killed by the highest level Jedi in Mace Windu - and Boba Fett essentially incapicitates Luke Skywalker in Return of the Jedi who is then rescued by Han Solo.

There are definitely different people that can take out the Jedi. And also the clone troopers in Episode III. The may have had the upper hand, but imagine if there was an Elite Clone Trooper! If you're the best of the best, you can probably kill a Jedi.

Atton Rand from KOTOR2 used to hunt jedi. He had learned to play pazaak in his head to keep jedi from being able to read his mind.

There is also some creature that can be used to deny the Jedi access to the force, I forget what it is called though.

Here is the link on Wookieepedia.

Another great article: Link

Quote:
3) You don't pick good or evil right off the bat

I was so happy to hear this - they were having a hard time explaining it. But somewhere between Erickson and Designers Jake Neri, Gordon Walton, Rich Vogel and James Ohlen's Q&A, it was made clear that you choose a faction from the get-go (Sith or Republic). Your good or evil status evolves through the choices you make, which is true to the KOTOR standard.

Mind you, choosing Sith means something in this galaxy. The timeline is set only 300 years after the events in KOTOR, so it's still very upsetting and somewhat "bad" to be a Sith. However, Old Republic is out to challenge what "Sith" means. The story goes that after KOTOR, two Jedi got exiled into deep space, ran into the Sith, shit hit the fan, and then they were sent back to the Republic as Sith emissaries. The Sith then kicked the shit out of the Republic, abruptly backed off and said "Give us these random worlds for no specific reason, and we'll call it even." And the Republic says "Deal," so now we've got these two factions sitting uneasily in a divided galaxy.

Erickson went on some huge tangent about the evolution of the Sith from a real race (like with a different skin colour and stuff) breeding with humans and influencing the philosophy of the Jedi such that a new thinking arose. This new thinking took on the name of the race (Sith), and then apparently shit hit the fan (that happens a lot in the galaxy far, far away), so "Sith" started to mean "evil."

This made me squee inside because I'm a fangirl who's read all the fanfiction Expanded Universe books and the best thing I took away from them was Vergere's challenge to Luke Skywalker that there is no Dark or Light Side. There was also something in those books about Sith not defaulting to evil. I think this point got totally ret-conned in the last Legacy book...


edit: Damn, I was totally going to be the first ever Sith moisture farmer.

Quote:
But they also want to keep KOTOR fans interested and maintain the integrity of the "epic-ness" of the game. So that means that they won't necessarily rely on instancing (not everyone can blow up the Death Star, I guess), and the crafting won't be some mundane thing where you find some thread and some crystals and viola - you have shoes!

Of course they won't say what the crafting will be, how the guilds will work or what PvP will play like (yet). I asked about moisture farming and they said no. But in that trailer, we saw a Jedi putting together a lightsaber, and Ohlen did come out and say you wouldn't end the game with the lightsaber you started with, so...

Sony's CEO was quoted as saying that this game will not be subscription based, but will operate off of micro-transactions.
