News Comments > KOTOR 2 Patched; OS X & Linux Support Added

I enjoyed the first KOTOR game, but held off buying the sequel because of all the reports of missing sections...

So it seems that was over a decade ago! Maybe I should buy it now

I remember writing a review of the first game about ten (?) years ago (around the time the Blues crowd were all marooned on The Chat Bear forum, because this site went down for a while).

I didn't like it.

Isn't this a bit like trying to shut the stable door after their customers have bolted, all got on a ship which has already sailed and then hit an iceberg?

What a bizarre, humourless, joyless trailer. It's a like a bad corporate video, made the game sound as interesting as a new kind of paint.

Took the decision a long time ago not to waste money on bleeding edge graphics, but the low power and low noise of nvidia's lastest cards seem like a major draw to me. So if AMD isn't winning on performance, why would anyone buy one?

No, Take Two will likely win because there is no freedom of expression in the UK. I could add an insult to the end of this paragraph, and if I was posting it from the UK I could be arrested.

Err, what? Are these from the Fox News Big Book of Facts?

Steam sent me an alert saying that the overpriced DLC bundle was on offer, but it's all lies... wake me up when it's 75% off.

Re: the SP campaign, I thought it was pretty poor. In their efforts to improve the story aspect (better than before, but still awful) they've neglected the the freedom that made the game interesting, and ignored the mission variety available to them. Rarely do you get a mission which isnt an almost on rails infantry experience.

But I still had lots of fun, mainly playing COOP multiplayer missions like Invade & Annex. I think that's where the value for money is in this game.

News Comments > Elite: Dangerous Powerplay Update Next Month
27. Re: Elite: Dangerous Powerplay Update Next Month Apr 24, 2015, 16:05 subx
 
I started off using my big old Cyborg joystick for ED, which gave me good precision and throttle control, but after a while it just ended up making my wrists ache. So I swapped to an equally old DualShock 2, and although it makes things slightly more fiddly to control, it wins out on comfort. The point is, the controls aren't that complicated, and you can use anything you want.

I haven't played for a while either though. A couple of months ago I started making myself a trading app, and it's probably not a good sign that I found making my app more interesting than actually playing the game.

Somehow when EA says that customer service is going to "accommodate me", I don't really believe it.

I'm afraid it's you who'll be "accommodating" them, now bend over...

alongside hexen and heretic as the best early post-doom FPS games.

Dark Forces - 3D maps! Amazing!

...and y'know, John Williams and stuff.

Microsoft leveraging their near monopoly position to shovel one of their other products at users in an anticompetitive manner...?

I think I've heard this one before.

I ended up with one million and something, was very disappointed. But I'm over it now... kinda.

It's not the same if you don't have to hunt for a blank tape to save your game on.

now I want someone to re-release the Amiga version of Paradroid 90.

You can get Paradroid from most of the Amiga game archive sites out there, and WinUAE is a pretty slick and easy to use thing these days (especially like the simulated floppy access noises in the latest versions :))

Heh, I've still got the CD-ROM for this sitting on the shelf to my right, just between Toonstuck and Command & Conquer

If memory serves, if you're running low on ammo, just put your gun on the floor then pick it up again and it's ammo is magically refilled... Christ, what a waste of brain cells!

So I guess you press the go button, wait a bit, and then stop pressing it?

Also can't help noticing the lack of a dragster, in a drag racing game. Seems a bit odd.

Click on community hub then discussions

Thanks, albeit a step backwards imo.

The old forums are still here:
http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/

...with their years worth of useful information which they haven't transferred over to the new system.

So they are now running two entirely separate forums. I guess they want to get away from the third party vBulletin system, and are hoping the old boards will die out by not linking to them.
