  1. Setting/Immersion/Story: I want to be able to get into the character that I am playing and forget about the real world for a little while. This is why I have a tendency to play certain games over and over again. Game Mechanics: I would much rather play a turn based strategy or RPG game over a real time game.
  2. I see that Mysteries of Westgate has a review up on nwvault. http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=NWN2Reviews.Detail&id=49. From what I have read it's the copy protection for Europe that is holding up the release of premium mod.
  3. FAVORITE PC GAMES: KotOR series NwN series Planescape: Torment Gothic I & II Dark Forces - Jedi Knight series Ghost Recon & its' two expansion packs/Rainbow 6 until Ubisoft bastardized/consolized both series starting with Raven Shield. Arcaum ToEE Janes Combat Sims series (except Jane's Attack Squadron) Combat Flight Simulator 2: Pacific Theater with Battle of Midway expansion pack M1 Tank Platoon series/Steel Beasts Falcon 4.0/Allied Force Thief 1 & 2 Deus Ex Sam & Max Hit the Road Grim Fandango Baldur's Gate Series Fallout 1 & 2 Master of Magic Might and Magic I-VI Wizardry 1- 8 Eye of the Beholder 1 & 2 Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines GAMES I WISH WERE AVAILABLE FOR THE PC, BUT THEY AREN'T: The Force Unleashed Lost Odyssey L.A. Noire when it comes out.
  4. You have t love the way the Yankees season started yesterday. Especially the way the high priced talent of Sabathia & Teixeira played.
  5. Wrong. Just of the top of my head here is a list of bugs that were never fixed in TSL. Telos Academy Imprisonment Cutscene Fix Dxun Equation Puzzle Fix Fuel For Telos Quest Fix Handmaiden Training Cutscene Fix Hidden Compartment Fix Mira Spacesuit Fix Skippable Mebla Dialogue Fix Starport Visa Trade Fix Tienn Tubb's Store Fix Visas Teaches Force Sight Fix Nihilus-Visas In-Game Cutscene Tweak Jedi Master Rendevous Fix Escaped Criminals Quest Fix Cyan Lightsaber Crystal Fix Korriban Secret Tomb Fix Force Crush Fixed Atton Facing Fix Influence Bug Fix Dancer's Outfit Appearance Fix Jedi Side quest on Dantooine While none of these bugs are game stopping. They sure are annoying. This doesn’t even include the fixes that Ulic made in his’ Prolog, Peragus, and Harbinger Issue Correction Mod or the fixes that Team Gizka has made for the TSL:RP. Remember that LucasArts gave Bioware three chances to fix KotOR. Lucas Arts gave Obsidian Entertainment just one shot to fix TSL. Don’t even get me stated on EA and its’ supposed patching of the Battlefield series. Hell, Bioware put out 9 patches over ~ 5 years for NWN 1 and they still didn’t completely fix the game. This is why a fan patch is being made. The fact that you think Bioware can patch an MMO in one week is laughable. Either you have no Business Savvy or you’re delusional. You will notice that Blizzard is not making a Warcraft game. Which is the equivalent of LucasArts making a SP KotOR 3 while having a successful TOR game. Both Diablo & Starcraft have nothing to do with the Warcraft universe. So neither game impacts significantly on the WoW bottom line. Actually comparing Galaxies to TOR is very applicable. Both are/were MMO’s. Both are set in the same universe even if they are at different times. Plus there are quite a few ex-SOE (Sony Online Entertainment) employees working on TOR. You’re assuming and you know what they say about assuming. There have been plenty of games that have never lived up to their hype. One game that I am worried about is Dragon Age: Origins. Again don’t be so sure. I suggest you go take a course in Game Development & Producing 101. It is the producers (LucasArts & EA) with the money not the developers (Bioware & Obsidian) that decide if a patch will get done. Both LucasArts & EA are well known for being miserly with bug patches. Yet Atari allowed Bioware to bug patch NwN ~ 5 years and is supporting Obsidian’s bug patching of NwN2. Bioware has never been known for great story telling. Good yes, great no. The only two things that are well written in KotOR are the Female Revan romance plot and the redeeming of Yuthura Ban. The game that I consider to Bioware’s masterpiece is Bladur’s Gate 2. Yet the best chapter in the game was done with Black Isle’s (would become Obsidian) help. You are comparing appkes & oranges. Most of the Fallout 3 mods do not add storyline content to the game. Yet the few that are out there are no where in the scope of DLC by Bethesda. Fallout 3 is to new of a game to have a major story mod produced by amateurs in their spare time. Yet I will put up Wizards’ Islands: Scourge of the Frost Bringer (Morrowind) and The Lost Spires (Oblivion) against the DLC for Oblivion or Fallout 3. It took ~ 4 years before the first two major story mods came out for KotOR.
  6. Ih I had to by it. I would go with pc-game-experts seller.
  7. The only way to get the game in stores. Is to buy the Star Wars: The Best of PC version. http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Knights-Republic-Battlefront-Commando/dp/B000HVTEX6
  8. Story: Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight Replayability: Jedi Academy
  9. IIRC it is set by your alignment when you first go to the docks on Nar Shaddaa. There was a choice mod that was hosted on PCGM.
  10. Could somebody upload Hoth: Imperial Base V3.0 to http://www.ifile.it I will let you know when I have the file. So that you can delete the link.
  11. Thank you for all the hard work you and the rest are doing. Between patches and mods for K1 & K2, I have ~7GB worth of material. I know that this is barely scratching the surface of the KotOR mods.
  12. Mucho Agreeance. Here I thought that the 3.0 & 3.5 rule sets were bad. They have nothing on the 4.0 edition.
  13. Damn this really sucks. I considered FileFront the best and most reliable place to get patches & mods. :(:(:(
  14. What section of PA? I'm in the Harrisburg area.
  15. Thank you Pavlos for an excellent interview. It's a toss up for who is my favorite RPG writer. Chris Avellone or Tim Cain.
  16. Online version of the PC Gamer article. Dragon Age: Origins – hands-on
  17. You want a list. Here you go. Wade Boggs David Cone Roger Clemens Mariano Duncan Cecil Fielder Jimmy Key Tino Martinez Rubén Sierra David Wells All free agent signings in the 90's Not including the druggies like Steve Howe, Dwight Gooden & Darryl Strawberry. Rickey Henderson was the name I was trying come up with.
  18. You can disagree all you want. However you're wrong. It started with players like Reggie Jackson. It continued through players like Ricky Williams and Dave Windfield. Now it's Texeria, Sabathia and Burnett this year.
