  1. Yeah, the random name genarator is pretty lame. The names it comes up with suck most of the time. Whenever I play darkside I never add the title, "Darth" to my name. It just seems really awkward, especially when you're training to become a jedi on Dantooine.
  2. I don't think that's true. Most reasonable people can distinguish a joke from true racism and hatred. However, some jokes are blatanly racist and hateful and not really funny at all. People just use the excuse of just joking around to get away with it.
  3. Well, I meant that in general but I guess it can apply to you as well. The keyword is usually. I'm not saying you're prejudiced but most people who think that way usually are. Are you kidding? That is really naïve. While I agree that racism isn’t as rampant as it used to be there is still a lot of it out there. Most of it seems to be directed at our president at the moment.
  4. People who really have problems with politically correctness usually do so because they feel they're being restricted from expressing their own prejudices against a certain group of people. It is not okay to call someone a n*gger or say that all muslims are terrorists. You have the freedom to say it but that won't stop me from putting you in your place. Those are just two examples of real prejudism. What we have to do is distinguish that from just joking around. The Transformers thing was innocent and even kinda corny. It's an outdated stereotype and I see no reason why people should be up in arms over that.
  5. I thought they had stopped doing this? Didn't the RIAA or DMCA, can't remember which, say they where going to stop going after people downloading music?
  6. I am not against political correctness. I think it's healthy. I am so sick and tired of people who go on anti-pc tirades and think they can get away with abusing our freedom speech and offend whomever they want. This is not the case. In this country you have the right to say whatever bile, stupid, ignorant, thing you want, and that's okay. However, we have the right to tell you to st*u. Freedom of speech protects you against retaliation from the government, not from individuals. However, there is such a thing as being too overly pc. I think this whole thing is ridiculous, same as with The Phantom Menace, it's obviously meant in good fun and we all have to laugh at ourselves once in a while. People need to lighten up.
  7. lol That made my day! You sound just like Red!
  8. I'm sure there's always going to be new people finding about KOTOR and will generate plenty of discussion. They can bring new things to the table and things can bring up topics on things that you've never thought about before. The OT films have been out for decades and they still generate plenty of discussion so I wouldn't be too worried.
  9. Wow, that was pretty... underwhelming. Looks like a freaking PS2 game! You guys are right, it would have been awesome if the lightsaber combat from the trailer was somehow integrated into the game! Too bad.
  10. lol That's pretty ageist. Not all thirteen year olds are a bunch of blithering idiots. Some kids are pretty smart, you know? Especially Star Wars fans, since they're more of the geeky variety.
  11. Same with me. I always end up modeling the character after myself and try to do what I would do in real life. I will definitely be following the path of the jedi.
  12. Well, I run KOTOR on a Dell laptop and it works great, even though it's not supposed to work for laptops. I see what you mean, though. It's a shame they have to sacrifice the quality of the visuals for compatability issues...
  13. I always hated this show. I'm glad it's being cancelled. I was getting tired of all the same lame jokes bashing liberals, Canadians, soccer, the french, etc... Perfect conservative mentality. And don't forget Hank voted for Bush! I do love The Simpsons though, but I'm afraid they've jumped the shark, and South Park should've been cancelled long ago. The episode with Lucas/Spielberg raping Indy was disgusting. Just when you thought they couldn't sink any lower... There's no excuse for that garbage.
  14. lol I hate flies. Good job, Mr. President.
  15. What the hell is going on? Everybody's dying. It really is June Gloom. R.I.P. Billy Mays. I always found your commercials to be entertaining.
  16. I don't. While I definitely would have preferred a K3, I do not want this game to fail. That wouldn't bode well for the series as a whole, I think. I want to see Revan and the Exile too but apparently they never made it back from the Unknown Regions. I also am not happy about paying a monthly fee but I guess I better start saving now.
  17. I agree. Though I wish both of these guys would have used more familiar themes more often instead of just ambient and and random action music. They had a lot of tracks that just seemed like filler, to me. I really don't like the boring ambient music, like the one that was used on Tatooine. One thing I do not want to see though, is more of John William's recycled SW music. I think we've all had enough of that, since it's practically been used for every game.
  18. Holy smokes, that's big! But the lightsaber hilts don't really bother me, what bothers me is the sort of cartoony style graphics they've picked for this game. I want the more realistic style graphics from the first game, where the characters actually looked like real people! This kinda worries me...
  19. This. I was pretty upset when I found out that we weren't getting a KOTOR 3 and I've never been a big fan of MMOs, I just didn't have the time nor the energy to justify paying a monthly fee. I'm still pretty pissed off that we have to pay a monthly fee on top of the in store price for TOR, but this game looks so amazing that I guess I'll just have to make do.
  20. If your girlfriend looks like Bastila, then you are a very lucky man! Imagine, having a real life version of Bastila all for yourself! She definitely is one of my favorite female Star Wars characters along with Mira and Shaak Ti.
