Alternate title: OH, [EXXXXPLETTTIVVVVVE DEEEELEEEETED]. And note the use of the word ‘remake.’ No gameplay yet, but the year is… almost over, actually.
As is traditional to note on this day. Of course, ‘tradition’ is a slippery concept, here. Anyway, we’ve moved away from rumors that a remake of KOTOR might be in the works to rumors that the upcoming KOTOR will be an action RPG instead of a turn-based one. Which would definitely argue against them just re-porting the game to modern consoles*.
So, hey! Actual Star Wars news that you might care about! Awesome!
*I also wonder how much cut content they’d officially put into a re-port ofd KOTOR II. After all, there was a team of people already doing it for them.
Rule of Headlines aside, I’m not saying no.Continue reading Tweet of the Day, Keanu Reeves As Revan? edition.
Which is a nice deal.
But you’ll also want the epic fan mod that fixes certain aspects of KOTOR. Like, honestly, the ending. And HK-47. Oh, yes, he can be made even better.
This really does sound a lot like how my characters both approached HK-47 in-game:
His red-eyed devotion to evil helped frame the wonderful paradox I created. The artist formally known as Revan the Butcher was now helping Twi’lek strangers pass dance auditions. HK-47 was expecting murder, force-choking and vengeance – instead, he got the Light Side Dalai Lama. A man who cheerfully crossed time and space to rehome Gizka. Looking back, it must have been an special flavour of hell for HK-47. He knew Revan when he was the Dark Lord of the Sith. It was like the worst kind of jock reuniting with his childhood bro, only to discover he’d started an organic Kombucha bar called Teasy Lover.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I had no greater urge today than to play Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic today. Apparently I just felt like hitting things with a lightsaber.
I regret nothing.
In one of the stealthiest launches in some time, Aspyr Media has released a port of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic today for iPad. The original BioWare game came out on the Xbox almost 10 years ago in July 2003.
You have to wonder why they didn’t try to make more of a splash with this, though; that article is from the end of May.
It’s a bit like Knights of the Old Republic, only without the problem of having to look like something that George Lucas came up with with regard to landscaping. Dag, but most of the scenery in those movies is grim…
Yeah, yeah, yeah: heresy. Seriously, though, the landscape is really pretty in this one.
