Star Wars KOTOR 2 Plans?

A KOTOR 2 article on IGN (thanks Frans) offers speculation about plans for Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2, saying "everything we're about to tell you is more than likely fact" about the Star Wars RPG sequel on the Xbox "and most likely the PC." They offer one bit of rumor from their sources on the game's story, and go on to piece together what they believe is the case for this game being developed by start-up Obsidian (story) under the supervision of BioWare, who, of course, would be working at the behest of LucasArts.

Anybody named Fear-us Urquan has to be the greatest RPG maker ever. That name just screams ROLEPLAYING. Does it not?

Fear-us Urquan? Yeahhhhhh.... I think that name screams Star Control joke.

IIRC, the only guys that have those tags are from 3DR and someone from Raven... (?)

#26, it is him, look at his comments history on BN.

I think Blue should hand out some "green-cards" to the devs more often.

Not that it matters too much if you believe me, but you can check my profile and contact me if you want to know more. For some magical reason, my name changed to an old nickname and my signature was deleted. Ahhhhh, computers.

Fallout 1 & 2 along with Planescape: Torment rank as the 3 best modern CRPG's that have ever been made IMHO.

The story and the graphic's at the time are what made those games.

You didn't like Rebel Assault (amazing for it's time), Tie Fighter, Dark forces, Jedi Knight, or X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter?

All great games in their own rights.

Great give it some nobodies,

So Feargus Urqhart and Chris Avellone are nobodies (Fallout 1 and 2, Planescape: Torment)? Given that they have made far better games than anything Bioware has ever dreamed of doing I'd hardly call them "nobodies".

Yes, I thought about that the second I posted. The origian two or three xwing spacesim games were way cool.. expecially over LAN gaming.

actually... Kotor on Xbox had some quite SEVERE bugs. Some were game crippling for MANY people. Some people couldn't game the game to start. Also if you chose certain character combinations in the game, the game would freeze at the end of the game, not allowing you to continue! The game was one of the buggiest Xbox games so far. Morrowind for Xbox was pretty buggy too. PC releases can be patched better.

I have not played it in a while, but I don't ever remember having any problems with it, whatsoever. If you're worried about bugs, I would stick with a console over a PC any day of the week.

KOTOR is about the only Star Wars game i've ever seen that was any good.

I think it's pretty standard to assume EP1 and II were garbage... because they were. HORRIBLE films. Horrible.

They weren't anywhere close to the originals, I'll say that...2 was a step back in the right direction, but still miles away from the originals.

Maybe 3 will finally get it right...but I doubt it.

Kudos to Derek for stopping by...now can you tell us it WILL ship by the end of the year? Between this and DX2, I think I can survive.

"I stumbled onto the developers "God" mode purely by accident"
Me too. I haven't played the game since then, but hope I can load an earlier save file I usually hate the D&D level system and any sci-fi/movie game. But I really liked Kotor. One of the best games I have ever played.
Professional
I know some of the choices are limiting and alot of the time it doesn't matter if you pick good/bad, But they do manage to keep the game fun and the story interesting. I got bored of the story in Morrowind because there was no need to do the main quest. Instead I kept getting hundreds of quests that all made the main story seem less important/memorable.
