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.

Xbox or PC? Oct 13, 2003, 16:54

I know this is a bad question since it's not on PC yet, but as much as I love PC RPG's like NWN and its ilk, I like a good console RPG too. I'm also big on the "original platform" idea. However, I hear KOTOR suffers from bugs (like not letting you save sometimes). So - should I get KOTOR on Xbox or PC?

I don't like the game...

I'm rather skeptical of the whole Star Wars theme, actually.

Wait for the PC version and play it on 1600 X 1200 resolution in all its glory

Heres a fucked up bug - somehow I stumbled onto the developers "God" mode purely by accident - and it put a "galaxy droid" in my cockpit that will fly me to ANY area in the game. It was so wacked out.. I still have the save game on my X-box. It was pure accident, I have NO IDEA what caused it to do that.

I played KOTOR on the xbox twice (light vs dark) and had no problems with bugs of any sort. The controls are very easy to use with a pretty good interface.

If you like switching around equipment and items a lot, the PC interfact might be better for you because the inventory screen is ok, but i'm sure it won't be as quick and easy as the PC.

The game plays out like a pretty good movie with a good story line. I personally liked playing it on my couch as opposed to jammed up in front of my pc.

To be honest, I think that you will enjoy the game on either system equaly. It's a very good game.

Hopefully not with textures designed for 640x480...

You're still skeptical about the SW theme even after the huge success of KOTOR? It's one of the best received games of the year. And I'd say that's pretty much unanimous.

I played through the game once already (which is amazing in itself since I rarely finish any game), but am about to go through again.

Does anybody want to do any of their own work anymore?

This is a cash-in game, and that's why Bioware is farming it out. Obviously, LA doesn't mind the extra bucks for the sake of...well...the extra bucks. Just look at the trash George threw at us for Episodes I and II...'nuf said.

Thanks for helping me feel that I'm not crazy for thinking Ep1 and 2 were garbage.

Many of the textures have been redone so the look great on the PC.

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

Shame shame shame on Hollywood...

And I generally just don't like the way the game plays out. Granted I only played for like an hour on Tatooine at a friend's house, and he explained the story to me (it didn't sound all that engaging), I just didn't find it a fun or interesting game. That and it seemed too linear... After playing Morrowind, I feel far too constrained in any RPG that has preset paths for me to take. (The dialogue I saw was pretty much limited to "let him die" or "save him".)

"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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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