    I didn't like KOTOR or Diablo (series). They were too mainstream for me, ya know. I would tell you which games I do like, but you've probably never heard of them.

    I'ma go have a PBR.

    Sorry my brain goes faster than my fingers :S

    ah, that makes more sense. I figured you couldn't be that out of touch in the video game world.

    You should try their more recent RPGs with all the voice acting (no reading) and choices. Mass Effect is amazing.
    Voice acting is overrated. Should play some of the non-bioware IE games, like planescape torment

    Yeah I dont enjoy bioware RPGs. The last was Jade Empire and I tried to get into everything and all the text just burned me out after awhile and you couldnt choose good or evil so much as pick one path and stick to it so you can maximize technique learning and the combat was just mashing A a bunch and somtimes hitting B.

    To be fair, Jade Empire is probably their weakest RPG. Its still better than most of the other RPGs out there at the time, imo.

    And "the last", was definitely not Jade Empire. They've made tons of RPGs since then.
    Yeah, like Sonic: dark brotherhood. Or Dragon Age 2

    Planescape:Torment is amazing. One of the best ever.

    I only pointed out the voice acting thing because Bedlam seemed to have a problem with all the reading in Jade Empire.

    Never even heard of that one...

    And those were good games that were fun to play.

    While we're talking Bioware, can I admit to a bit of heresy? KOTOR2 is probably my favorite Bioware game, bugs and all.

    Felt good to get that out in the open.

  • SeGaTaiSeGaTai Registered User regular
    FecklessRogue-I seriously don't even remember if I finished that game, I just remember at some point the story not making any sense and not caring about it and being pissed off that I did at some point in there.

    Funny thing about that game. Talking with friends afterward, some of them were like "that story made a bunch of sense" and some were "that story was bullshit and stupid". I pretty sure certain choices worked out a lot better for the narrative than others.

    It counts! It sort of counts. Bioware "oversaw" it. Or something. I didn't make a mistake.

    Shut up.

    Probably true and looking back I really don't remember what that story was about or what about it didn't work. That might be part of my hate looking back that they made a story that I just couldn't care about and didn't remember-regardless of how bad it was.
    It was bad

    I admit, it was stupid and I was stupid for saying it.

    Let me rephrase: I had more fun playing KOTOR 2 than playing KOTOR 1. And I loved playing KOTOR 1.

    Question for the host: With controlling planets as a mechanic, will this game remind me of the fun parts of Star Wars Rebellion?

    In this game, the majority of players are Jedi trying to root out and cleanse their order of Sith Infiltrators while also preventing the Sith from gaining more power through galactic control. Every player will either be in the Jedi Council OR be part of a Knight/Padawan pairing. Every player will have multiple powers they will need to choose from each night.

    Does this imply trustworthy masoning or just a pairing?

    Also while control is a thing this game for powers, is planetary control a victory condition as well? Or is it standard village/mafia elimination?

    It has to be just a pairing or else the sith being unpaired would break the game.

    Also it is thematically tasty for your master to secretly be a Sith and betray you! :D

    Pairing does not mean masoning. Pairing is also not "just a pairing". Powers may or may not be dependent upon the actions of your Master/Padawan.

    Planetary control is not a victory condition for the mafia or village, just a source of powers. Planetary control will be used to determine the winner in the case of ties.

    Will the mafia be allowed to pick their own secret Sith names (e.g. Darth Examplus)?

    yes, and those names will be used in the narration. so they will need to pick wisely

    I think I've enjoyed every bioware game I've played. Kotor was fun, NWN was a steal for the amount of time I put into it, and I love the Mass Effect trilogy (the endings of 1&2 are easily among my favorite gaming moments, and 3 had some really good stuff if you ignore the ending).

    Oh, wait, Dragon Age. Never finished that, the combat was just clunky so I stopped half way through and never finished.
