Since the gaming laptop is gone, there isn't that much to do in LotRO and raiding together isn't an option, Tiger and I have resorted to other games. We've played some Sims 3, but now we've started Knights of the Old Republic 2 (in short: KOTOR 2), which we bought cheap in the latest Steam sale. I've only played the first game and that was ages ago, so I was very curious as to how things were to proceed.
Because KOTOR 2 was rushed and barely finished when released, we installed some mods that fix some things and include parts they had to cut due to time limitations. The PC Gaming Wiki has a great article about it here.
The game started in the right mood, when I met the first guy in the game. He was held in custody behind a force field, I was in my underwear (picture above). Don't ask. The worst thing was that he actually thought my underwear was sexy. I mean, look at that stuff. If this is considered sexy, what happened to fashion in the age of the Old Republic? Or exactly how long was he held behind that force field?
And look at this. Dear god, it's the combat suit disaster all over again! I can't help it, it had better stats than the underwear. Stop. Staring. At. Me.
Luckily, this embarrassment didn't have to take long. Soon I found a badass dark padawan robe to steal the show.
Now we're just missing an explosion to walk away from.
I thought the start of KOTOR 2 was a bit slow: it really took ages to get off the mining station. However, the mystery of what happened there was fun, and Atton and Kreia as companions are okay. The graphics and combat system are cute as always. I'll certainly play this game to the end - if I'll bore you with a report of it is another story. For now it's time to set a course to Telos for "I'm totally not piloting the air" flyboy Atton.
