Heh, I got sucked back in to that too, when the restored-content mod got mentioned here. I'm quite interested to see just how the restored ending plays out. The original ending just plain sucked.

I'm nearing the end of the game. Overall I think the gameplay is better in KOTOR 2, but I still like the story in 1 better. I'll have to see how this one ends though.

At least Steam is going to refund me on my credit card for Monopoly



I'd gladly pay 10$ for an up to standard product

Now i'm pissed cause i wanna play an online Monopoly game and there doesn't seem to be a real one, don't even bother linking me to the pogo version or whatever

Keep in mind that the ending is still very similar, but there are a lot of conversations added at the end that tie up loose ends a lot better. It also clarifies some of the games themes. The game has a missing act and there is no mod that can fix that unfortunately.

KOTOR 2's story is much better to me. But they both appeal to different areas I think. I liked 1's too so it's not a knock or anything.

The gameplay side has goods and bads in both games. KOTOR 1 is more challenging (though still very easy) so ultimately I find it better. The encounters are much more interesting. 2 has some great crafting stuff in it but its so overpowered that the game is seriously the easiest RPG I've ever played. I think KOTOR 1 had better exploration, though both are pretty limited in that area.

Oh if you haven't reached the HK factory yet from the restored content mod that can be pretty tough. It was never balanced right and probably shouldn't have been in the restored mod, or at least have the option to disable it.

nice one.

Nah, I just never wanted a credit card. I saw the kind of damage they did to my parents, so I stayed away. Unfortunately, it sucks for things like this.

Wait, but why can't you use your debit card to pay for stuff? I'm so confused.

Yeah for the US Amazon, you can only use a US debit card. So I can't use my debit card anyway. The Canadian Amazon doesn't have the same deal AND you can't use debit card on their site (as far as I know).

EDIT: PS. Sniper, I love you. I just played two levels of Golden Axe. Oh my goodness, the memories. Love it!

On a different note, the new Tomb Raider looks awesome but I haven't really played any in my life. I do have the HD collection that I'm going to tackle into soon.

Anyone tried Guardians of Light?

http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-LCGOL/l...rdian-of-light ... $3.75 worth it?

It's pretty fun to play with a friend. I've noticed some pretty bad network problems at times with it but still worth it IMO.

Just decided to pick this up because I always wanted to play Beyond Oasis and Phantasy Star. There are others I'll likely play at some point as well. Would likely play some of the others like Golden Axe with others on co-op.

On a side-note: Anybody else notice that Steam recently added the ability to install games to different hard drives? Pretty cool feature that I was wondering why it took so long to make. It'll be nice for people who have SSDs so they can put their favorite games on the SSD.

Honestly, since it will do this, it will probably make it easier for me to get a SSD. Especially since I'm look for one (maybe around 480GB) to replace my 640GB WD Black (which I still use and love). Install games I use the most on the SSD and install the ones I want to keep around on another HDD. Awesome.
