I did. I'm not proud. Wanted to play the game when it came out but didn't have a PC at the time. But now...

I've owned it for years and never played it, due to shiny things being somewhere else constantly.

You know, I've had it for years but have only played it for a few hours like donkeys ago.  I've been thinking of giving it a try just recently, though.  I've heard it's a fantastic game with a great story.

Had to deretire for a while to train the next production manager at my family's ex-factory (or words to that effect). ;)

A lot of my prior posting came while degaussing my brain at work between juggling cats (metaphorically), or after work in the office, although in the final year or two the various stresses of transitioning the business over reduced that a lot; and then after retiring I had more time. But now for a while I have less time again (and can't post in between work at work), and not much energy to do non-work with after 'work' work. ;)

Anyway, all's good here, just can't focus on Grogheads atm. Thanks for asking tho!  O:-)

It is my favorite Star Wars story, and while it's true I'm not a huge fan of the movies like some people, I'm enough of a fan to have seen several of them.

And yes, a great game to boot, even as dated as it is.

I have heard of, but never played, and apparently this one is also coming for PC as well.

On Sony's blog, the developer says that Knights of the Old Republic Remake will be a "console exclusive on PlayStation 5 at launch." Lucasfilm Games later confirmed that the game will come to PC. VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb later reported that KOTOR will release on PC on the same date as console.

The original was a PC classic, seems really dumb to make it a console exclusive at launch.  Sony must have shilled the big bucks for that deal.  ::)

I remember the original being on X-Box, but I don't think it ever made it to Playstation, which makes this whole deal quite ironic.

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.
