I loved KOTOR1, but avoided KOTOR2 due to problems. So, it is safe to play now?

Does the Sith Restored Content patch work with the new version? Doing a quick check around the horn, seems like it could be a bit buggy.
That was my concern as well, but if I'm reading this correctly the Mod team advised on this official patch. So if it's got conflicts, I'm guessing the Mod fixes are already underway.

@Ant, you might wait till the word on potential mod conflicts. You really don't want to play without the Restored Content Mod. Fingerscrossed

Rush is one of the bands I'm not overly familiar with...I should probably fix that, someday.


Make sure you do some acid before you listen to 2112 and remember it came out in 1976. Wear some bell bottoms and a tie dyed shirt! Hippy Lighter

There was absolutely nothing illegal about the war in Kosovo. It was a UN operation which was supported by a majority of nations to stop Genocide, War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. Not only that it was the most successful UN operation to date, not only did they stop the war and crimes but the leader was arrested, tried and serving time in the Hague.

Haven't had time to check your other claims but let's hope they are more accurate.

It got premiered here in Austin at SXSW, to rave reviews and won Best in Show. So far each episode has gotten better and better. It's hard to imagine USA network being the one to take a risk on such a dark comedy based hacking show.

Thankfully, I never fell for his crap, since without coop/pve I've got no interest.

The best we have atm is The Secret World. While far from perfect they do have the best dress system, keeping armor and clothes separate. Each player can have their own style from beach attire to formal wear and everything in between. Best weapon at the time I played was the machine gun.

It's B2P like GW2, with the lowest price being at Greenman Gaming for $7.49, plus a 20% off coupon.

The Elder Scrolls Online? That's surprising, it hasn't been on sale, at least I recall. I'm still playing it and it does seem a lot more populated since B2P started, especially veteran areas.

I would have suggested Kathryn Bigelow except the way she has advocated for MPAA and RIAA prosecutions.

I turn off music in a lot of games (especially something like this, where stealth and hearing audio cues is important) so I originally assumed it was just in game. But yeah, it is good.

Love the part where he shoots up, pops around for a bit, looks up, and it's just NOW coming down, and he opens the door to let the descending bolt fly through.

Thanks! It was so good, almost makes me want to trade in my nokill oath and be a killer!

I'm pretty sure most of the people who bought DX:HR had never played and probably never even heard of the original DX (just like the vast majority of people who bought FO3 had never played or heard of the series before then). DX:HR was a great game and faithful to the original in many ways. It definitely wasn't "another generic console game."

Also, the original DX had forced boss fights (Maggie Chow, Walton Simmons, Bob Page) and they were just as crappy as the ones in the original. Sure, there were exploits you could use to bypass some of the fights but those were never intended by the designers.

Finally, do you really think that Square mandated the automated traversal system in Thief? Or is it more likely that the developers saw the popularity of AC and figured that they should copy its traversal system? And if Square didn't care about the DX brand, why bother spending all this money reviving it? Why not simply abandon it like so many other old IPs, like Anachronox?
According to Spector the only character you had to kill was Anna Navarre, because otherwise you couldn't exit the office. I.e. Alex Jacobson wouldn't help you/give you the key until you protected him against Anna Navarre. All the other fights could be non-lethal. Iirc it was Manly2000 who got the credit for figuring out how to exit the office without killing Anna Navarre. Her AI reacted to a Gas Grenade if throw to a specific spot, which opened the door. Alex and Anna both survived both Gunther got confused, still accusing you killing Anna.

Also, I've never said it wasn't a good game (at least to the best of my memory), just very consolized. Also comparing DXHR to Deus Ex is unfair in the budgetary sense. DXHR had a massive budget compared to Deus Ex. So Deus Ex had realistic reasons they couldn't afford better animations or more fleshed out boss encounters or dialogs. Imo, part of the charm of the original is the quality and vision on a shoestring budget.

Lastly yes, I really think jumping was taken out of Thief on purpose due to limitations. Iirc correctly the developers said as much, which is why the controversy start 'before' the game was released. eidos had a buttload of excuses, none of which was "hey we want to make it like AC". Most of them, were technically based, i.e. the physics of jumping, iirc. I'm too tired to look them up and it's not important on the whole. Surely the same can be said of Thief, it would have failed as a AAA title if it wasn't for the pedigree and lore.

This time around Adam looks to be even more of a super hero than anything else...
They had to, otherwise they'd have needed a lame excuse as to why all his augments have suddenly stopped working. Better to evolve the game and add greater threats.

Looks great to me. Loved the previous game and I'm definitely looking forward to this.
An easy way to handle it, he could start the game with obsolete upgrades. Lore could state he went with a neutral path. Fed up with both sides and went into isolation until the unthinkable happened............!

There's no reason to believe eidos believes in Deus Ex other than shipping another generic console game. Without the Deus Ex pedigree I'm not sure how much the original would have sold. Just like JUMPING in Thief or forced FIGHT bosses in DXHR, it's quite obvious they are trying to force as much generic down our throats as possible.

Just imagine for a minute without the pedigree, there would have been absolutely NO UPROAR from the fan base about the forced to fight bosses. They put those bosses in there on purpose, then tried to blame it on the developer, eidos hired. That alone make's eidos pathetic. Middlefinger

I can still see the yellow filter.

As it should be. Crank that as well!

It would be fine if it wasn't being used to obscure the draw distance and poor quality textures. It really should have been optional, then you guys could have used it at your pleasure. It's basically yellow bloom, which I don't like/use bloom anyway.

Aren't these all effects the PC had 4 years ago, when the console game human revolution was released and sold to PC gamers?

The washington times article has been shown to be fraudulent even the reporter who wrote it, couldn't defend it during his television interview.
Sunday Times reporter on Snowden story: We don’t have a clue!

So if the British or any other government are pulling out assets, then it's based a propaganda move to manipulate the public.

Really mixed on this because I loved the first game, by far one of my favorite games from last year but without Obsidian this has a high chance of sucking.
+1

Not to mention, even if it is decent Obsidian created the winning (imo, I really loved the game) format. In the press release ubi tries to claim credit for the success of the first, even though they had little to nothing to do with it.
“By successfully mixing outstanding comedy with excellent gameplay, South Park: The Stick of Truth created a game genre: the Comedy Role-Playing Game,” said Laurent Detoc, president at Ubisoft. “Our teams worked hard,.....

Additionally who are we all kidding here, there's a 90%+ chance it's going to include uplay, the BS drm.
