I'd just like to point out that Obsidian had no say in it being rushed. That was a distributor/EA issue. Also, Obsidian is pretty much the team responsible for the good Fallout games, so they can do no wrong.

Also, I refuse point-blank to acknowledge that KOTOR is oldschool.

Specifically, George Lucas wanted a winter release. I think I can speak for all of us in this, when I say, FUCK YOU LUCAS!

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

the key to every good DE army makeup. Always have a backup plan, try to take everything in multiples, and use everything you can to your advantage, being a sneaky bastard within the rules, as it were.

I go by the rule I've always gone by. If it's not a decade old, it's not old-school. Wait a couple years and it will be though.

ok its old enough that it will be a time worn classic that stands the ages (after fixing the, minor, resolution issues, I have found the game to be quite crisp still. give the game some HD texture revamps and it would could pass easily as a new game, no necessarily the best graphically, new game, but new game nonetheless. the game was so innovative graphically back then with the choreographed fighting so it looked SWish, and it stands the test of time

I had a lot of fun with it back in the day, and have played it through about 3 times. 1 Dark Side, 2 Light Side. Only real gripe I had with it is that the Dark Side choices are the typical bully ones, and lack the true malevolence that other games have shown a PC can have.
You obviously never did this then.
