Hey all,

Just thought I would let everyone know that Steam is having a sale on Star Wars games. 13 games for $49.99

Knights of The Old Republic II which isn't in that pack, is currently also on a flash deal:

I actually picked up that bundle at the beginning of December.

Installed KoToR and was all set to relive my (late) childhood.

Booted it up and all I had to say was, "What. The. Eff."

It's amazing how far we've come with GPUs, CPUs and monitors since that game released. I can't play it without a couple boxes of tissues to soak up the blood flowing from my eyeballs.

Yeah, I'd say this generation of games has broke my childhood irreparably. KoToR was incredibly fun, but I can't stand to look at the graphics these days. It would be awesome if we had a KoToR redux or something (that's a hint, EAWare. Make it happen!)

Never played any of them. Are there some that are fun?

Depending on what happens with the expansion release, the current bugs flying around my head, I may be looking for some solo games to fill my dead time until the next MMORPG comes out.
May the Schwartz be with you....

No Lego Star Wars? Blasphemy! They are on sale individually though.

I still play old school Super Nintendo games now & then. Especially Final Fantasy 3(6) & Chrono Trigger. I can always revisit those 2.

KoToR 1 and 2 were definitely fun in their day, don't get me wrong. I'm just incredibly spoiled by the new graphics and clearer monitors. It used to be that I'd play a game like Ultima on the console or PC even knowing the graphics were sub par compared to current releases. And I might still if that was the thing to do at the time. But that because those games tried specifically to do as much as they could with what little they had to work with.

KoToR doesn't work that way. They made it using top(ish) end tech for the day and it just seems light years behind now. At least this was the case for the first game. The second might fare better, but I haven't installed it (again) yet.

My recommendation would be to pick up the bundle at half off. I mean, what the hell, they're iconic enough that even if you only get half way through it, you can at least say you tried it. But I'd suggest playing it in a 640 x 480 window to minimize ocular hemmoraging.

I actually have FF1, 2, 3 and 4 on my phone along with Chrono Trigger and FF Tactics. But every single one is remastered in some way for re-release. I tried playing FF1 on my old NES and found I'd much rather get eye strain and neck cramps from playing the new versions on my phone.

I actually started playing Force Unleashed on the 360 recently. I tried to play KotOR but as someone said the graphics were hurting and I couldn't do it. I had Jedi Academy but never played it and traded it to someone for KotOR 1 and 2 back then.

Both are amazing games. They are worth buying. Keep in mind they are made by two different companies. So you might see differences in them. But still well worth the money. ( they were worth the money when they came out)

Graphic wise ... well ..... Just think back to then is all I can say. If I remember correctly they had mods for them, or a way to make the graphics better... google around I'm sure you will find something.
I have been called a hater for voicing my opinion. So be it. But I would rather die on my feet, then live on my knees.

You should have kept JA. ( and bought KOTOR) Ja was an awesome game, just for the multiplayer alone. ( If you like PvP)
