Shem's going away for a few days, and Darth InSidious is going to be gone for a week, so it looks like the poll is up to me again. Until the 24th it'll be me and Carter running the site. I fully intend to continue playing and modding the original games, myself. I'm almost entirely disinterested in the MMO as well.

 #2 - Posted by: bfkdarthrevan (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 06:04

Well it seems that LucasArts is really punching PC star wars fans in the face, first they screw us over by not creating The Force Unleashed for pc and now they wreck their best games by making a lame MMO out of it. Everyone knows how Galaxies was abandoned by almost everyone. It's no use when there are games like WoW (not that I support that one). KotOR is KotOR and it's not some stupid MMO. I'll only buy it if it has a moddable SP. That's my 2 cents about it.

 #3 - Posted by: Darth_Oblivion (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 06:38

That's honestly what I think they're going to do.....but who knows.

 #4 - Posted by: MNattrass (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 06:39

I'll only buy it if it's free, like guild wars, which seems unlikely after galaxies. :( I read that there was a KOTOR3 being made which wasn't an MMO, so that's once again not true?

 #5 - Posted by: True_Sith (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 07:06

They will denature the KoTOR series. That and this new Clone Wars film... The guy is like Salvador Dali: avida dollars :( I hoped so much for a sequel including both the exile and Revan, or whatever; the possibilities were almost endless. So disappointed.

 #6 - Posted by: Drunkside (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 07:09

BAH!!!!!!! MMO;s down, long live true roleplaying!!!!!!!!!!!

i know in an Idiot but whats a Kotor MMO? Heres also a detail on that MMo thingy http://www.massively.com/2008/07/17/kotor-mmo-confirmed-by-electronic-arts/

 #9 - Posted by: IcePure (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 07:46

ok, what is MMO, is that kotor3?

MMO, or MMORPG is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.

Such games as Runescape, Star Wars: Galaxies and of course - World of Warcraft.

Damn, I'm not gonna pay for an MMO, I don't even play them - sounds like a turn in the wrong direction if you ask me.

 #10 - Posted by: Revan_Malak (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 07:50

This will suck:r I just want to read the story at Wookieepedia. The Real KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC ARE: KotOR I and KotOR II:rock:

 #11 - Posted by: paulskywalker2000 (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 08:19

It really depends If it's a rip-off MMO (every MMORPG since EverQuest follows the same *SNIP* format) then forget it. "Grinding" your guy to highest level is a huge waste of life, yet when I played SWG, I saw SO many people do it.:mad: It completely murdered the game. CU..... Also, I'm SICK of MMOs:r. The era of the MMORPG should be GONE now. Let's go back to the era of single-player MMORGs, (late 1990s-early 2000...s?) RPGs are more FUN, they have a real STORY and you don't have to GRIND until you reach highest level, nor do you have to deal with *cough* idiots *cough* who just bash n00bs, take stuff off them, act oh so high and mighty, etc. No way, after SWG, I'm NOT playing another MMO...unless, of course, it's ENTIRELY different (which, I could see BioWare doing...) For the record though, wearing Sith Armour in the game would be NICE!:cool: STAFF EDIT: Watch the language!

 #12 - Posted by: IronHawk007 (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 08:21

Long live the original Kotor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 #13 - Posted by: darthmelissa (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 10:41

sorry for kreiaspeak[tm] but Lucas woud be foolish after seeing how they destroyed swg they would correct the mmo mistake but like the exile they failed me.

 #14 - Damn straight I will. If it's an MMO, it isn't KotOR. - Posted by: Darth_Revan_1990 (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 11:31

No God damn way!!! I don't want to play another grinding pointless MMORPG that in the end won't be worth the discs its written on. So Lucas Arts wants to make MORE MONEY... Surprise Surprise. All I can say is thats a hell of a poor excuse to utterly destroy the storyline of the KOTOR Series! Agreed with #12 and just about everyone else here so far Long Live KOTOR I Long Live KOTOR II !

 #15 - Posted by: Xoron (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 12:07

so does this mean there wont be a kotor III?

 #16 - Posted by: GenJackONeill (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 13:07

I HATE MMOs!!!!!!!!!! This will not be as good as the real KotOR. I won't buy it, no matter what.

 #17 - Well - Posted by: Gregthegen (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 13:14

Personally I like the Idea of an MMO set in the KOTOR era, much better than one set in Galaxies. Stormtroopers are done to death. Now Bioware has made awesome games such as Mass Effect and the Kotor Series, lets not forget that Sony developed SW Galaxies with Lucasarts and churned out what many believe to be crap. (it was ok... considering I could/would only play the free trial...) Now, if this game won't be considered Kotor III, or ban any future hope of Kotor III, then I welcome it. If it isn't priced too high and has Bioware's typical mark of excellent programming. Then I will buy it. If the gameplay sucks, that won't necessarily mean the end of the Kotor franchise, did SW Galaxies mean the end of the Battle of Yavin era of games? No. However, if they include sp with this game, it sure as better be more similar to what we are used to with K1 and K2 or if based off of the MMO have vastly different controls than SW Galaxies or WOW, and preferably moddable. If not, I will be a very unhappy man. So, what I say to Bioware is this, ship us a kick-butt KOTOR mmo that doesn't cost us an arm and a leg, (maybe with 9$ a month max charge) but if it doesn't have sp, don't count it as KOTOR III, start developing the Real Kotor III. Thats about all my thoughts on the matter.

 #18 - Posted by: DarthHK (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 14:25

No MMO can ever hope to achieve the levels of excellence in the KotOR games. I truly believe that this could easily murder the OR era. I mean, the only reason why SWG didn't kill the BoY era games is because, that's LA's (before the Clone Wars of course.) Of course this is just the thing we should come to expect from George "I'm killing my franchises one by one" Lucas in the next years.

 #19 - Posted by: INFECTEDHAMPSTER15 (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 18:00

I'm not sure yet. I'll have to see the MMO first. Yeah... After playing through eah game about 100 times KoTOR I and II have lost their pizzaz and not to mention KoTOR II was really shoddy and KoTOR I was ridiculously short. MMOs get really lame after a short while if things dont keep changing not to mention how would it even work for an RPG, everyone is the same person!

 #20 - Posted by: Loco_Modder (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 18:08

I'd hafta see the MMORPG. I personally like them if their gameplay isn't lame. But I'm pretty much through with playing the series, it begins becoming monotone to me without the wild tangent of other human players. But I don't think I could see KOTOR becoming a good MMORPG, its story-oriented gameplay style doesn't seem like it could be adapted to MMORPG without totally changing. So I really would be surprised if a KOTOR MMORPG would be any good at all. But I'm open to the idea.

 #21 - Posted by: sithlordjesus (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 18:27

One thing people don't get is the community it's gonna have. Kotor is a long long game, with quite a few puzzles, which will drill out Impatients and kids, and the story could be instanced so you dont see people running up to the same NPC as you. And you forget, you could play with other modder buddies, running around with Shem or Inyri or some guys killing dark jedi with each other: is that not appealing in the slightest? Kotor WAS an MMO at heart, but with NO other people. There was all the things of similarity to an MMO: Grind Click-to-death combat and others that im too tired to name. but take kotor, add real people to it, and suddenly it's terrible? *SNIP* I am buying it, so should you. STAFF EDIT: The next flame you type will earn you some ban time![/i]

 #22 - Damn straight I will. If it's an MMO, it isn't KotOR. - Posted by: Tulak_Hord (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 18:54

100% agreed with. If the proposed KotOR is an MMO, all I have to say is this: Way to ruin KotOR, you morons. It wouldn't be the KotOR we're used to. It'd be bad. But I'll still get mods fro the other 2 games even if it comes out!

 #23 - Posted by: Emperor_Devon (Staff) on 08-21-2008 at 18:55

Yay for 13-year-old boys arguing over which one of them is the real Darth Revan?

Kotor is a long long game, with quite a few puzzles, which will drill out Impatients and kids

LOL. I should show you some of the crap Shem and I have dealt with sometime. All games attract their share of impatients and kids, and I can more than attest that KotOR has.

And you forget, you could play with other modder buddies, running around with Shem or Inyri or some guys killing dark jedi with each other: is that not appealing in the slightest?

Hack and slash is boring, so not really. I'd prefer listening to dialogue, and that isn't really an activity you can share with someone else. You don't see people reading books together, do you?

There was all the things of similarity to an MMO: Grind Click-to-death combat

KotOR provided a finite supply of enemies per area, so there's a definite cut-off in the amount of grinding players can do. That and there's no benefit to being at the game's maximum level, or at least in the same way I've gotten the impression there is in MMOs.

And WTH do you mean by 'click-to-death combat'? The combat system has nothing to do with KotOR being a single player RPG.

but take kotor, add real people to it, and suddenly it's terrible?

I don't find the prospect of playing through KotOR with anyone I know terribly appealing, so not really. Might be a novel thing to do once or twice but it would get old. Certainly wouldn't be one of the game's major selling points for me.

But add to the possibility it could be an open-ended MMO, ala WoW? That sounds awful.

Kotor WAS an MMO at heart, but with NO other people.

Ha ha. No.

 #24 - Hmmmm.... - Posted by: ChaseHamill (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 19:21

Well, I havn't heard anything about an MMO, but if its confirmed, its confirmed. I can say that it must be the best MMO ever to get Lucas out of the pit he's digging for himself. He is dead set on running all of his franchises into the ground. The new Star Wars movie was a joke, it was Lucas' attempt to cash in on the actualy good animated series. The Force Unleashed looks meh, not the greatest game ever, but I will pick it up once the price drops to around thirty dollars (no way im paying 60 for an average, nothing fancy game.) A KOTOR MMO can only succed if they remove grinding, do a real time combat thing like Galexies, except without terrible lag. Put in a cover system, and can actualy balence Jedi rather than if you were a Jedi you slaughtered all gunsman (*cough* Galexies), and if you didnt have monthly fees. Why is Guild Wars succesful? Because you dont have to cough up a hundred $ a year to play. I will buy it if it takes Mass Effect's combat, add balenced force and lightsabers, and have voived Dialog. I can say every one hates getting a big lv 70 mission in WoW, that is supposed to be epic, and have the same boring text scroll by that you've seen all game. This MMO needs to be the best MMo ever made to get away with Lucas' greedy attempt at cashing in all he can on every Star Wars thing ever created.

 #25 - Posted by: PrincessJaden (Member) on 08-21-2008 at 20:27

Damn straight. I'll check out the MMO. But ONLY because it's KotOR. But I'm not expecting to LOVE it. Or play it anywhere near as much as I play K1 & 2. That is all.

 #26 - Posted by: Darth_Oblivion (Member) on 08-22-2008 at 16:02

I'm with PJ on this one. I doubt I love it, but I'll check it out. If I buy it, honestly doubt I'll play it a lot. Playback complete "I am Darth Oblivion.....Dark Lord of the Sith......and Lord of Death."

 #27 - Posted by: ChaseHamill (Member) on 08-22-2008 at 17:24

Sure, I'll probably check it out, but if its like msot new games coming out, my computer wont be able to handle it. For some reason Pixel Shading turned from pointless eyecandy to a minimum requirment in games, but eh, what ya guna do? I'm just worried they will screw it up so bad, the KOTOR universe will die. I'v never played Galexies, but alot of people say it sucks. Im going to and get to the bottom of why people hate the CU, er Combat Upgrade, as referd to by every Private Server. If this MMO makes the mistake of having monthly fees, I fear we will get around, oh, 300 people max. WoW takes a huge mijority, half of them will move to Warhammer once it comes out, there are great PC games coming out, and millions of other free online games. People are tired of coughing up big bucks to waste a huge ammount of time. The grind in games is a turnoff for almost everyone. Now, to level up, there must be a form of gaining xp, without widdling away your 1 key at the same enamy for 2 hours. A shooter style combat, would be perfect to bring in people, even if they dont even know what KOTOR is. Making a system like the jedi knight series would be perfect. Fast action, balenced jedi adn force, its all there, put it in online and you have yourself an amazing combat game. Voiced NPC dialog is essential to keep people wanting to play, rather than getting bored at fetch and grab quests and kill X number of enamies to get X number of items quests. You can even pull off those style of quests as long as you keep people hungering for more dialog, unlike WoW, where you just get sleepy after questing. Also, NPC combat would be one of the msot increadable feats ever in a game. Sych as instanced PvP battles, where you and your choice of crew fight. A huge space battle with NPC battle ships, and bording parties, with large numbers of players, and your choice of which race, combat style, ect your npcs have would be enough to give fans of any action game an orgasim. To pull of this greedy attempt by Lucas' would require a mixture of every well loved star wars game. Also, an online game with an actual story, would be a pioneer in the art we all wish online games would have. It's boring to know that all you do an entire game is talk to NPCs to get a boring quest that at the most has like 5 quests in a chain. An actual story, wouldnt be impossible to pull off eaither. At the higest level you could complete the final misson, and once your finished, you can just free rome, doing quests for gear, or PvP. It seems Lucas is trying to cash in on everything Star Wars, and to keep fans loyal, he msut make this game right. If they can Pioneer the things we wish MMOs did have they will have the best MMO ever made. And you cant repel power of that magnitude!

#27 Wow; you just described MMOs in all entirety!:eek: (I would know, I played SWG). It's basically go to one NPC, here some *SNIP* dialogue with NO story (grrrrrr...:mad: ) go out, retrieve something (usually kill something to get it) then come back. WOOHOO! YOUR DONE! Time to move on to the NEXT quest! Your idea for an MMO would also breath fresh air into the franchise, because seriously? Most MMOs are the same. Automatic shooting, and there is no TACTICS in bringing something down. Unlike in an RPG (where if you use your brain, you can take down opponents much larger then you), in an MMO, if you're a "lower level," your screwed. Skills and tactics; don't matter. It's all about your *SNIP* level. Which is REALLY stupid. Because then you have to "grind," thereby wasting your life. And the CU (I was there when they made the switch) was the beginning of the end of SWG. Basically, after the CU came out, you had to reach certain requirements to don certain weapons and armour, which angered people who had more...advanced equipment. Worst of all, it added levels into the game, which ruined the process of the player actually choosing what branches he wanted to combine together to be the best (because, besides Jedi, there was no real "best") and, like any MMO now, led to "grinding." OOOOOOH, SWG killed itself...:furious: So PLEASE LUCAS! DON'T let BioWare make this game! (I have high doubts...but oh well...) STAFF EDIT: Last warning about using foul language!

 #31 - Posted by: Drunkside (Member) on 08-23-2008 at 11:27

ED, I was gonna post about the same post myself... Kotor an mmo without other people? Click to death combat? Seriously, Kotor is a story based epic RPG, Not a freaking MMO without other people... MMO;s suck, the only one i play is GW becouse its a bit different from the rest and has no monthly fees... WOW:r

 #32 - I'm not buying it but... - Posted by: Jedi_Jango (Member) on 08-23-2008 at 13:17

What people seem to be forgeting is that this is only based on the KotOR series (in other words, set in the same time), it isn't an actual sequel to KotOR. I mean, LucasArts are smart enough not to ruin their hugely successful and popular series by making the highly anticipated sequel an MMO. Although I am a little put off after Galaxies, this game is not KotORIII and I think that if they do make a third game in the series (which I think they eventually will) it will not be an MMO but a single player RPG like the other two.

 #33 - Posted by: DownloaderBizz (Member) on 08-23-2008 at 21:23

this is a dark poll... i was looking forward to a classic kotor with amazing story/dialogue etc... damn game series should be similar... changing the game from an RPG to an MMORPG is mistake number 1, and im betting a lotta mistakes are following... even if its bioware...

 #34 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 12:35

Really, we all know Bioware makes awesome quality games, so why refuse one just because it's MMO? I'm guessing that since they have such great game writers (Mass Effect = :rock: story), I am guessing they'll be put to use. It will most likely give you the role of a jedi, soldier, mercenary etc during the Mandalorian Wars or the Jedi Civil War. I don't give a crap what happens, I am going to buy it.

 #35 - Posted by: CaoRen (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 13:18

 #38 - Posted by: Revan411 (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 18:42

Its still KOTOR right? I mean KOTOR is still a great game to play. I would continue playing KOTOR even after the MMO is out.

 #39 - Posted by: Emperor_Devon (Staff) on 08-24-2008 at 19:11

Its still KOTOR right?

When I think of KotOR, the first thing that comes to mind is 'story-driven, dialogue-based roleplaying game'. The main attraction of MMOs (playing with other people) is irrelevant to that at best, and detrimental to it at worst.

 #40 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 19:28

You always have the option to play solo on the MMO, but I am thinking it will be bogged with rules and 'noobs'. I used to play Runescape over a year ago, and that game was like a big massive cult following.

 #41 - Posted by: Darth_Oblivion (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 19:43

Still is......I barely play it anymore.....just get on to check my account and such.....noobs crowding everywhere..

 #42 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-24-2008 at 20:22

Yeah really the only thing I enjoyed about the game was the player killing, and after they canceled that I gave both my accounts away. I am hoping there is PVP in this MMO...

 #45 - Posted by: ChipMunk (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 09:19

So what if the kotor mmo is another epic quest, except this time your companions are real people. And what if they continue to use the Starwars RPG rules? I think this game they are making will be good.

 #46 - disapointed - Posted by: HAkz (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 10:04

Personaly i think that a Kotor 3 would be great but this, this makes me sick, congratulations bioware and EA you just ruined the series! The plot is gonna go wack and so is the entire coherency of the game. the original kotors were DESIGNED to be a singleplayer game with no multyplayer, now its a multyplayer game with no singleplayer, in my opinion this was huge mistake because it is gonna skew the entire feel of the game and make it hard to believe as a "continuation" to the first 2 Kotors, so in short im very disapointed.

 #47 - Posted by: thor8808 (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 11:59

Do you guys actually think Bioware is going to create a game without an amazing story? Just look at Bioware's past productions, obviously it's going to be different from any mmorpg on the market right now.

 #48 - Posted by: Anakin12 (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 12:55

 #49 - Posted by: Emperor_Devon (Staff) on 08-25-2008 at 13:38

I agree.

No, you don't, otherwise you'd not have said what you did above.

Do you guys actually think Bioware is going to create a game without an amazing story?

They've created numerous games without amazing stories (though those were usually good ones). But an amazing story is moot if I'm too turned off by other aspects of the game (see: typical beefs with MMOs) to play it.

 #50 - NOT A SEQUAL - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 13:39

Hakz are you blind? THIS IS NOT A SEQUAL!!!!!! It is not going to be set after Kotor 2, it will most definitely be in the Jedi Civil War, as you can use Dark jedi in it!!!! THIS IS NOT A SEQUAL!!!! IT IS MORE OF A SPINOFF!!!

 #52 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 13:45

Oh and Devon I think he meant that he agreed with what you described Kotor as and that a MMO wouldn't benefit that. However, that doesn't mean it will be a bad game.

HOw come there isn't a choice for playing the old ones and the MMO?

 #56 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-25-2008 at 21:17

Because all views must be biased, and having a happy world means no arguments, which in turn means no reason to do everything. Little do people understand that all motivations are fueled by problems.

 #57 - Posted by: HAkz (Member) on 08-26-2008 at 08:45

NiRv4n4, notice i did not say or even mention SEQUEL i said continuation, i did not say that it would be set directly after the first to kotors i said it would be a continuation, meaning it will be based on the same general storyline, it may be set in a different time frame like the jedi civil war but it will still have something to do with the first 2. It could be set anywere or anytime, all i know is that it will be addition to the first 2 that does NOT mean that it will be have the exile in it or anyone else from the originals, it just means exactly what i said it will be a addition.

 #58 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-26-2008 at 09:21

Then how does it ruin the series? If it's not a sequel and since it's an MMO, I seriously doubt it will be canon, as anything could go anyway.

 #59 - Posted by: HAkz (Member) on 08-26-2008 at 10:31

Because it will have some of the same story (jedi civil war) in it somewhere it will be classefied as a kotor game, take battlefront 1 and battlefront Renegade Squadren for example, they were 2 different kinds of game but were classeified as part of the same seiries, i believe that the original kotors and this new one will have the same kind of connection. It may not be "technicaly" a sequel but it will be seen as that. Now read comment #46

Dude, it isn't going to really be a "Kotor" game as I see you putting it. It will just be set in the same general time period. This will have no correlation to the other 2 games other than the setting, the plot will be entirely original as with thousands of people playing the game, anything could happen. And who is backing you up with your statement of 'it will be seen as a sequel'. THIS ISN'T A SEQUEL, IT IS A PART OF THE MERCHANDISE. This will be no more a sequel to Kotor than The Children of Hurin was to The Silmarillion.

I am not supporting or spurning the game, I am trying to offer an indifferent view as to how I view this game. And how does this game ruin the series? Bioware is trying to appeal to all sorts of people, and last I checked MMORPGs have large fan bases. Look at WOW, it has over 10 million people playing it. That's 150M Revenue each year, not to mention advertising. I doubt the Kotor "Sequel" will be left behind, due to it's large fan base. However, I guess Bioware thought it a better financial move to invest in an MMO first. Who knows, I don't work for them.

Sorry, I meant 150M each 'Month' :rolleyes: Hey, see! Pacman is rolling his eyes!

NiRv4v4, u post alot! ;) But seriously, I think that the KOTOR MMORPG is supposed to be buying them time to create some fresh new content for KOTOR III, and besides, I think that if they can pull off the right elements, the KOTOR MMORPG will be a big hit. I, for one, will take a look at it. :thumbsup:

That's weird, I got logged out (I auto-login), and when I logged back on, it said it was my first visit to the site, even though my profile is the same...

well look, this is obviously an extremely good time perios for an mmorpg, and i am sure bioware wil make the game awesome, but it just wont have that kotor feel to it. when i think of kotor, theres perfect dialogue options, the ebon hawk (where you endlessly talk to your characters and customize your character). hope i aint the only one who feels this way about kotor

 #66 - Why would I? - Posted by: MilianSwraith (Member) on 08-27-2008 at 11:12

I think there are better MMO games then kotor 3. I think if its MMO, it isnt kotor. I played pretty much MMO's and many werent that good if u ask me. And kotor is cool with the secrets and stuff. They should bring it back in the MMO otherwise no play

i hope it will be like sp and mp, like you can level in sp and allways change to mp and level there to, and i hope it will be the classic kotor engine and not have level to use any armor and stuff, just light, dark, and feats that will require to use items.

 #68 - sorry for dubble - Posted by: krissmus (Member) on 08-27-2008 at 12:09

@NiRv4n4 i guess it will be b4 kotor 1 (when revan was the sith lord)

 #69 - Posted by: Darth_InSidious (Staff) on 08-27-2008 at 12:23

Hmm... to pay ~£9 a month to play a repetitive hack-n-slash fest of an order of which I could sate my thirst for playing DS2 for a few hours, or not. Do I want to then mod aforesaid game? Personally, no.

 #70 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-27-2008 at 12:54

Who knows what it will be like? And I will repeat this is basically a whole other game. It is based in the setting of Kotor (eg. Jedi Civil War), but will most likely not have really any connection to the other games other than that.

 #71 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-27-2008 at 13:45

You know what grinds my gears? The majority of the people who answered "Damn straight I will. If it's an MMO, it isn't KotOR." will probably buy the game...

 #72 - Posted by: Lady_Revan (Member) on 08-27-2008 at 14:00

I was really hoping 3 would bring back the option of playing as Revan. Revan's my favorite from the series and I was expecting a game more like Mass Effect ( with the amazing character creation). I'm not really sure how a MMO for this game would work, but, being a huge KotOR fan I'll try it out. I will definatly keep to the first two games for along time still.

 #73 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-27-2008 at 14:31

This isn't Kotor 3, read the other posts before you post.

 #74 - @73 - Posted by: Lady_Revan (Member) on 08-27-2008 at 14:53

@73 I didn't feel like typing out the whole title, Duh. And you know what? I did read the comments and I don't what to be involved in whatever your problem is. I just made a statement about what I was thinking about the new game. There was no reason for you to be so rude. :rolleyes:

 #75 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-27-2008 at 15:04

Rude? Everyone is so --no offense-- pampered. Do I have to add an extra line so I don't risk offending you? And Kotor MMO isn't much longer than Kotor 3. I don't mean offense, but I may speak to frankly.

 #76 - Posted by: NiRv4n4 (Member) on 08-27-2008 at 17:56

Oh, also you will not be able to play as Revan because after 5 days, the whole server will be overloaded with people running around saying they are the real Revan.

u know guys a mmo isnt that bad if u just try it

 #78 - Posted by: Loco_Modder (Member) on 08-28-2008 at 05:17
