Knights of the Old Republic
« on: July 7, 2003, 09:39 PM »
Just saw a TV commercial for this game, and it looks sweeeeeet!  What does everyone here think about this upcoming game?  Do you have it on pre-order?  Are you going to play it for the PC or XBOX?

This is the game I'm most looking forward to this summer (been waiting for it for months, stupid delays  ::)). As of right now, the tentative date for release of it is sometime around July 15th-17th. It has not officially been confirmed for that date but that is what most game stores and sites have it listed as, for now anyway. I plan on picking it up for the X-Box as my computer is not near fast enough to play it plus I don't want to wait another several months for the PC release.

I agree though, this game looks and sounds awesome.  ;D

I'll likely nab it for PC eventually.  It's not high on my priority list, but it does appear nice in the commercial.  If I cannot play it, I will wait till I've upgraded and can...  I'm not sure on specs really.  

I'm still curious to see some specifics about Republic Commando more.  That piques my interest for sure. :)

It was just officially announced earlier that the Xbox version went gold today which means it will in fact be in stores on July 16th.

I know what I'll be buying next week.  8)

Anyone playing this?

I have about 10 hours into it and lovin' it.
Sweet game and seems like it's going to go on for a looong time.

One weird thing that happened twice to my 12 yr old is he saved two different games and both were corrupt.
Very weird they would not load.

Not sure if he disrupted the save but...

Needless to say he's hacked i'm so far ahead of him now.  ;)

Jimmy, are you playing it on the X-Box or the PC?  Just curious, because I have PC and wanted to see if it runs nicely on it or not.

I didn't even realize the PC version was released.  Someone told me PC was pushed back some, but I guess not.

Gotta get off my @$$ and get that game...  Looks really sweet...  I played with it at my friend Dan's house.  He has an X-Box and wanted a good Star Wars game so I told him to hold off for this since it was predicted to be so good.

It looked nice, but not as visually impressive as I thought it was going to be...  Still it was nice looking (Nothing like Obi-Wan which was terrible in the visual department).

Can't wait to actually get INTO the game though.

I think the PC version is still on hold...
I have it on the Box.

It's a great game actually the visuals are pretty slick.
The movies are great.

There is a lot to this game though. I have been at it 10+ hours and am still on the first planet. I got a double bladed saber now but don't have enough skills, etc to use it.

Pick it up though if you have a Box... and if you wait for PC as long as play is smooth I highly recommend it.

I too have it on the Xbox. Picked it up last Thursday and am enjoying it very much. One of the best games I've ever played, it's that good.

I'm about 17 hrs in and only on the second planet. It took me about 13hrs to finally get off the first planet. There was just so much to do and I was in no rush to plow thru the main story.

Jimmy, are you going for a dark side character or a light side character in your game?

chuckles I opted for a light side... I know...
I love Imperials more in the cannon but decided to go light in the game.

Really fun game though.

I can't wait to get onto another planet like chuckles.

I'm going thru it on the light side as well. But at some point, would like to play thru it on the dark side and see how all the different side quests play out differently and to see the different ending.

I won't spoil anything but there are some pretty cool things that will happen once you hit the second planet.  ;D

You guys are right... the PC version hasn't been released yet.  I just assumed the PC version was released the same time as the X-Box version.

Once I get it for the PC, I will most definitely choose the Dark Side.

Yeah, I'm going with darkside first too...

I believe my friend Dan summed that up best by saying this in an email to me today;

"Yeah, so you can choose your own path and if you wanna be a dark or light jedi guy.  so of course I'm gonna be a d!ck and go with the dark jedi thing first. :) "

hehe...  Sounds pretty fun to me.

I was telling him how something similar was in Jedi Knight back in the day...  Made a more interesting game for sure.

PC version shouldn't be too far behind so hopefully before long, and so long as my computer can handle  it.  I'm in desparate need of an upgrade though (My CD-ROM is a 24x, hehe :)  Sad huh?)

I think I'm going to need to buy an X-Box!  :o

Nothing wrong with going dual-console.
