  1. Anyone played Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II recently? I installed this last night, because I remember liking this game a lot in the past and I wanted to play it again. My thoughts on the game in 2008 are below. I've just finished playing the light side version of this game, without cheating (well, except for the health/armour cheat) and despite the fact the game sometimes crashes after saving and the live action cutscenes have black pixels on them, it's still a great game after all these years. Why? - Storyline: Brilliant. Certainly put a lot more effort than the two sequels. - Graphics: Not as good as the next two games, but at least it isn't off-putting like Dark Forces (I still can't play that, because the graphics for that game gave me a headache). - Levels: Each of them get better with each playthrough. - Villians: A lot more interesting than Desann, Tavion or the Disciples of Ragnos, that's for sure. Jerec scared me (okay, I was seven or eight when I first played the game) and each of the Dark Jedi were great characters. I remember liking Yun and Sariss a lot. So has anyone else played this recently? I'm tempted to play the dark side again (I used to think the ending for that was quite good) and of course, play Mysteries of the Sith.
  2. Here are the certain party members that I find useless: HK-47: Granted, he's funny, but as a party member, I didn't use him. It doesn't help that he's broken for the first half of the game. G0-T0: T3-M4 is much better and a lot more useful. Plus, HK is the better dark side droid. Visas: Pointless party member. That and a general bias I have against the character. Other than that, I pretty much use everyone.
  3. Either a vote between Family Guy (which I haven't watched for ages) or King of the Hill. I'm going to go with King of the Hill (other). The Simpsons got boring after Season Five and Futurama is quite good, but I prefer the other two animated shows above. American Dad, I haven't seen enough of, mainly from the later series.
  4. Me too. He is by far, a much better writer for Doctor than Davies is. He's the modern day Robert Holmes. Oh and when I watched Silence in the Library last week, I had this crazy theory that the woman who knew the Doctor, was Susan (his grand daughter), who had finally regenerated. I know it goes against being the last Time Lord, but it is possible.
  5. Another vote for the Jedi Exile. One, he/she is more interesting, with a better backstory and in fan fiction, very easy to write for. Two, s/he's not a sterotypical Sith Lord like Revan is.
  6. I've only played The Emperor's Tomb, so that's my favourite and I like the plot and how it shares similarities of the Indiana Jones Trilogy (can't see any for Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls).
  7. I think several characters were quite cool: T3-M4: This little droid is really likeable in the sequel and is actually useful, when compared to the first game. Atton Rand: Like Han Solo, cool and likeable. Kreia: One of the most well-thought out characters ever made in a Star Wars game. Handmaiden: A very good fighter. Mira: A very good bounty hunter. Also, for a cool Miraluka, I'd go for Jerec anyday. Visas is boring, for me.
  8. And original characters are characters made by us.
  9. Upon entering a cantina, which Brent himself visited very often (meaning everyday), he heard the news about a suspicious character, Jack Goren. Typical Jedi, Brent thought angrily, as he pushed through the crowded cantina, so he could order his drink, always attention seeking, no matter what the situation. It was a harsh opinion, but Brent couldn't care less. In this galaxy, you had to look after number one. Yourself and yourself only. Brent sighed, as he saw someone getting thrown out by two bouncers. Someone, no matter what they had or hadn't done was thrown out. Tonight was no different and Brent knew that there would be more following the someone being thrown out. After so much effort, Brent finally made his way over the counter, much to the annoyance of the punters. In particular, one person was very annoyed with him. This was normal. "Oi!" the annoyed someone shouted, "Stop pushin'!" He pushed Brent backwards, knocking several glasses to the floor and in some cases, spilling glasses with exotic drinks, such as Juri Juice and Correlian Ale over many disappointed people. And it was because of this, a riot started. Brent didn't care. He had a problem with the someone who had started it. "Listen sonny!" Brent yelled over the riot, "I didn't push in, you've just been drinking too much!" "No, I..." the man argued, hicupping and stumbling from side to side, "You..." The bouncers that had thrown someone out before walked over to Brent. "Okay old man," one of them began sternly, "You've caused a disturbance of the peace." Disturbance of the peace? Hadn't them or anyone else noticed that rioting was quite common? "No, I haven't," Brent replied angrily, "I've just come in here for a drink and it isn't my fault that someone can't hold their ale." "Sure you have," the second bouncer replied, grabbing Brent's arm and twisting it, as well as kicking the behind of his knees, "Now out, before we take serious action." Brent couldn't do anything. With no way of fighting back, he allowed himself to be thrown out into the dirty streets, vunerable to the possible threats there. "I really need to get away from Coruscant soon," Brent told himself, as he limped away.
  10. I've finally seen it and I think it is a good film and my favourite Indiana Jones film, with The Last Crusade. There was only one mistake with the film:
  11. When I first bought the game, I did Dantooine, Korriban, Dxun/Onderon and Nar Shaddaa. On future plays, I then did Dantooine, Dxun/Onderon (or was it Nar Shaddaa first?) and Korriban.
  12. Bastila is my favourite KotOR girl, followed by Yuthara Ban.
  13. Well, I've written my opening post (which I hope is okay) and I've stated that Brent Vaughn (who will be referred to as Vaughn throughout the story) is looking for a way off-planet and hoping for adventure. My character might just stumble into the other characters, but I don't know.
  14. It was another dreadful day, down in the unfriendly and depressing undercity of Coruscant. Those who were beggars beyond belief, begged everyday, hoping to catch spare credits from the pompous well-off people. Most people however, tried to retain some sense of dignity, even if they were poor and that they were trying to make their awful lives much better for themselves. Brent Vaughn believed that he was one of the many people, hoping to improve his poor and somewhat pointless existence. Alone and bitter, Vaughn was no longer in his prime and he was way past trying to make himself stand out in the galaxy. He had a chance, long ago during the Mandalorian Wars. Sadly, he had failed then and he hadn't had another shot at fame, fortune and glory, which he thought that he deserved. Of course, there had been several adventures since then, but nothing worthwhile and certainly nothing to boast about to anyone who might have stopped trying just for a moment and listened. Nobody did of course, but those who did listen usually listened with an open mind, but Vaughn had a feeling that most of the time, nobody believed his stories. He had told them quite clearly that he had once been a soldier for the Republic and fought against the Mandalorians and then after his heroic acts (which was a lie really, since nobody back then had considered him a valiant person), he worked small time, trying to avoid a busy life. Vaughn didn't care anymore. Nobody wanted to believe him (might've been to do with age, since he was sixty-five after all) and that was fair enough. What Vaughn missed most, however was a good old adventure. A point of living, trying to make yourself known to the galaxy. But twenty-nine years ago that had changed, when Vaughn had decided to start again. What a terrible way to start again, he thought, as he observed the many crowds, which thankfully he had been about to avoid. If Vaughn was going to try and have fun again once more, he was going to have to find a way off the planet. He wasn't a good pilot and most of his piloting friends had either abandoned him or died, when he had abandoned them. Somehow and someway, he was going to leave Coruscant and hopefully forever.
  15. I hope to see it this Saturday. Plus, this weekend, I don't have to worry about Doctor Who being on, since Eurovision has taken it over for a week.
  16. In no particular order: Only Fools and Horses The Green Green Grass Doctor Who (Classic and New) Torchwood The Simpsons Futurama Family Guy King of the Hill Teenage Kicks Life on Mars Ashes to Ashes Heroes Porridge Open All Hours That Peter Kay Thing Phoenix Nights Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere My Family The Fresh Prince of Bel Air The Invisibles A lot I know.
  17. steven, just to say that I like the Sylar picture you have there and I'm sorry you had to wait five months for this role-play to pick up. The storyline is too good to miss. No problem, besides this gives me the chance to change my character a little bit. I hope he is to your satisfaction. Name: Brent Vaughn Age: 65 Appearance: Species: Human Weapon: Blaster Pistol History: Brent Vaughn has seen it all. From lowlife scum fighting for a spare credits, to wars that were fought across the Outer Rim, Vaughn has seen what the galaxy has to offer. His first taste in fighting was when he joined the Republic at the age of twenty-one, in the battle against the Mandalorians, in Vaughn's opinion, the epic and terrifying Mandalorian Wars. There, he lost many close allies and swore vengeance on the Mandalorians, hoping to avenge his friend's deaths. Soon his obsession on revenge became so great, that when the offer of continuing the battle alongside Revan and Malak, Vaughn couldn't refuse. He left his fellow comrades behind and became prey to the dark side. Luckily, unlike most who also followed Revan and Malak, Vaughn managed to redeem himself, after he realised that revenge wasn't the solution and he returned to the Republic with great difficulty. Upon return, he was stripped of his position in the Republic army, causing Vaughn to be sacked and with little money and not a sign of dignity, he was his own man again. Vaughn avoided the next wars that followed, which were the Jedi Civil War and the Shadow War, despite the temptation of fighting once more. He also avoided contact with any important institutions, like the Exchange, in case something went wrong and he would end up in serious trouble, like he had done with the Republic. Since the end of the two wars, Vaughn has returned to his home world of Coruscant, only to find he had lost his home and was forced to live in the dangerous undercity. With no skills of piloting and owning nothing whatsoever, barring an old blaster pistol from his days in the Republic and the one set of clothes he has on him, Vaughn was forced to stay on Coruscant, hoping that one day, he could leave the planet forever. Twenty-nine long years have passed and during that time, Vaughn is now bitter and still alone, but as he always had been, he is eager to fight once more. Even if it costs him his whole life.
  18. Name: Brent Vaughn Age: 60 Appearance: Short grey hair, quite tall and wears ripped clothes. Species: Human Weapon: Blaster Pistol History: Once a soldier in the Republic, Brent Vaughn was fired, due to poor behaviour and being believed to be a traitor, since he joined Malak in the Mandalorian Wars. After the war finished however, Vaughn abandoned Malak and after being fired, he lived in the undercity of Coruscant and became the scum and villiany he had tried to avoid for so long. Nowadays, Vaughn has missed his old days in the Republic and is longing for a bit of excitement and he intends to get it as soon a possible, first making way of Coruscant. Also, nice role-play steven and this will be my first role-play I've joined in sometime.
  19. As others have already said, you'll have to wait until you reach your one thousandth post, before you can have your own Custom Title. Don't make my mistake though. I have so many posts, but half of them aren't even quality posts. I'm hoping to redeem myself in that respect.
  20. I wouldn't worry about the upcoming Indiana Jones film. While the Star Wars prequels may have disappointed some audiences, because of how different it was, Indiana Jones IV looks as familiar and as brilliant as the three previous films.
