Re: KOTOR 3... info found

Cool.  Very good find, Mel.

I don't know if I'd want it to take place around the time of the movies, though.  Part of the charm is that it's set so far back into the past.  Another part of the fun is discovering all the past "tie-ins" it kind of tips its' hat to.  Like that of Bendak Starkiller (Starkiller being the name originally intended for Luke), Cassus Fett (ancestor to Jango and Boba), Darth Revan actually wearing a Mandalorian mask of the Mandalore he killed, the sword of Bacca (presumably one of Chewbacca's ancestor's), and so forth.    I think that's one of the reasons they decided to do the Tales of the Jedi comic (which is around the same time frame at K.O.T.O.R., give or take a decade or two, and was the basis for the game), set so far back into the past.  At the time Dark Horse published the series, it was during pre-production of the first three movies and there was too many things John Ostrander couldn't do because of continuity.  However, setting it so far into the past, it kind of leaves everything open, but still has all the elements that make Star Wars so enduring over the ages.  The fact they had Mandalorians just made it all the more great for me, but I'm biased, as I think we all are, in that regard.  What's even better is that they now have the K.O.T.O.R.  comic which takes place before the games (Taris is still intact).  It's set during the Mandalorian War.  Mandalorians everywhere.  Good stuff.

You know, talking about all this makes me want to actually finish playing the first game.  I'm still only half-way through, I think.  I'm at that point where I get captured by that Admiral that use to be the commanding officers of the smuggler in your crew.  It was just one of those games I didn't want to stop playing, you know?  Kind of like Final Fantasy.  I think it's finally time to finish it.  Then I can move on to the second one.

Anyway, I think the series is better set in the past.  Anyone else agree or disagree?

I just finished the first one! Yay! I think I might give it a bit of time before I do it again on the darkside. Hmm, perhaps I should buy KOTOR 2, Brendan's at a junket he won't know tongue

Yep I think it's better in the past. It gives it it's own character. There's already so many games that take place around the movies. It's refreshing to have something a bit different.

I would be happy if there is ACTUALLY a KOTOR 3.I don't really care about the era,I like the way that KOTOR develops the storyline and the whole rpg thing..

Re: KOTOR 3... info found

It's not really Knights of The old republic if its set in the movie era.

By which I mean before episode 1 the Republic tended to be called The old republic.

In movie time it was just simply the "republic"

Maybe they should do

JKOTR
(Jedi Knights Of The Republic)

Or

Make it rather than KOTOR 3  just a new RPG called

SOTE
(Scourge of The Empire)

The only problem with the last one is SOTE is also the Shadows Of The Empire.


Hey, if its between ROTS and ANH why not make the main character meet Quinlan Vos and Boba Fett.

Damn would that be good.

Re: KOTOR 3... info found

I agree whole-heartedly with Sadriel here. If they make a No. 3, it needs to be Old Republic, for a variety of reasons.

1) There's the "charm" thing Sadriel was talking about: allows it to be more detatched, and gives tons of references to the future

2) There's the name, like Humorbot pointed out.

3) My chief reason: it's too perfect to not happen then.

Think about it: KOTOR 2 leaves off on a cliffhanger. Revan and the Exile have gone off to battle some unknown enemy that threatens the republic, and it is up to the Lost Jedi (Atton, Bao-Dur, Handmaiden/Disciple, Mira) to restore the Jedi/Sith. With a set-up like this, how can you just leave it? That's just cruel!

If I worked at Lucasarts and let that happen, it would physically hurt me. I'm sure they have all kinds of ideas about what happens next...let's hope they act on them.
