Splinter Cell


Don't know if you all heard, but LJ is being taken over by the Russians [it's like a plot to a bad post-Cold War Avant Garde espionage thriller, or something. anyway...] and they're changing EVERYTHING INTO CYRILLIC. And as I'm sure plenty of people heard too, but Star Wars is being bought by Disney, so it seems everything is kinda falling to pieces.

I'm leaving for Army Basic next week, so maybe this is a good way to say goodbye to LJ and all the folks I've talked to on here.

This comm. is pretty much dead so far as I can tell, but I'd be remiss in not saying goodbye to everybody. Best of luck to you all!

Heyya folks

I haven't played KOTOR 1 or 2 in years. I remember I stopped playing for a time back in 2006, and went into withdrawals. Of course I played one character each year after that, but I last played in early 2010. Didn't have any more concepts I wanted to try out.

Well, I started missing all the neat things about KOTOR2 today, and decided to play a character already well established in another series, Assassins Creed: Ezio Auditore de Firenze. I plan on making him in K1, K2, AND Mass Effect 1-2.

Anyway...anybody else play any neat character concepts lately?

Novel and Comic

I know that most KOTOR news nowadays is instead SWTOR focused, but has anyone read the new Revan-focused book written by Drew Karpyshyn (and no doubt hoping to cash in with the MMO's success)? Any positive opinions? I see the reviews are for the most part negative (and honestly I did not enjoy Revelations at all, which I believe is all I've read of his), but I'm always on the hunt for more KOTOR-related releases.

Speaking of which, I am excited for the new comic series. I really enjoyed the first series.

*Dusts off the comm*

I know this isn't KOTOR, but many of us here are Mass Effect fans, so I thought we'd take a short detour.


Most of the time when a long time single player series adds MP/utilizes a new medium for MP, I usually get quite peeved because the SP is left as a steaming huge pile of dinosaur droppings [Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, Jedi Knight Jedi Academy].

But sometimes, game companies magically pull their heads out of their asses and deliver a MP that is grandiose, and appropriately compliments the SP [Splinter Cell Conviction, Assassins Creed Brotherhood].

So when I read that Bioware was adding a MP element to ME3, I thought "...FINALLY!"

I don't know about the rest of you, but ever since KOTOR back in 2003, I've always wanted some sort of MP for Bioware games. Where you take your pre-made Revans, Jedi Exiles, Sheps, and Grey Wardens, and pit them against other player's.

When I read about this, I was somewhat disappointed that you wouldn't be able to take your Shepards and use them in co-op...but this is still pretty damn awesome. Despite the shit with TOR, I trust Bioware to deliver in the SP department, as well as give us a MP that doesn't detract from the SP.

A wee deviation from the KOTOR talk...


Three reasons this makes me squee (yes, squee) fanboy style:

1. It's an RPG centered around espionage and intrigues.
2. It's being released in the U.S. next month
3. It's being developed by the same amazing crew who created KOTOR2 (the main reason why I'm mentioning it in this community)

Speaking of KOTOR2, for those who have team Gizka's restoration mod, how is it? I heard they released a near completed version of it a few months ago. (I have it on xbox, not PC you see)
