Confession: I’ve played through KOTOR at least 4 or 5 times and every other time I start it thinking, “This is it. This is my evil play-through,” and legitimately fail. I know I’m being silly and missing out on the story but I really like the blue background to a light-side character.
Confession: I’ve had a crush on Bao-Dur for nearly ten years. It has faded at times, but whenever I rediscover KOTOR, it comes back stronger than ever. I relate to his anger and admire his loyalty, and I think he’s really cute. It’s kind of amazing that the crush has lasted for this long, though.
Confession: It pisses me off that when you’re on Malachor the guy who helped you destroy it and set everything in motion only appears as a hologram. The way Kreia lumps him in with the droids at the end only rubs it in.
Confession: I love Kotor 2, but I wish it was a little more polished as far a game design is concerned. I don’t mean graphics or sound design. I mean actual gameplay. For example, Kreia teaches the Exile all sorts of cool new force powers. Wouldn’t it be great if the game was designed to use those powers more frequently? How about making gas traps and gas grenades more frequent and deadly so we’d use Breath Control more often? Or giving the player a chance to teach these techniques to the companions?
Confession: I used to hate Manaan as a kid, but now I can see how much of a well-crafted narrative and atmosphere there is. I see it as the ‘mature’ kotor, what with the politics and dark underwater elements.
Confession: After playing KOTOR II with the restores content, I have a greater appreciation for Atris as a character. Her motivations were far more in depth than I originally thought, and revealed just how much the Jedi Order had failed their own members — Masters, Knights, and Padawans all. Atris was never the Order’s salvation, but she was a catalyst in it’s destruction and subsequent reformation, making her a more pivotal character than one could have imagined.
I just realized the queue didn’t post all the confessions tonight so I will have the rest of the confessions posted tomorrow morning
Confession: I hear of a lot of distaste for the Revan novel, and in some respects I wish it hadn’t been published. Revan and The Exile’s final voyage might have been worth being left unwritten, however The Exile’s depiction was excellent in my opinion, as I had felt totally unattached to her in the game.
Confession: I just finished the ‘Revan’ novel and due to my general knowledge of the extended universe, I already knew the ending. Nevertheless, it didn’t make it any less sombre.
Alright guys we got a total of five confessions coming at you tonight. Any received today should be posted tomorrow.
Oh and sorry for not posting the confessions yesterday, I was out late last night and had no time to make them! To make up for that I’ll link you guys and tell you how to install ANY mod shown in any of the confessions (even though I’d do that anyway)
So yeah, keep confessing! We’re nearly to a thousand!
