The RPG developer still has an interest in Star Wars.
The final product will be buggy as hell, at same time with great writing, characters, story and mature theme. I' feel torn apart...........
To be fair Obsidian usually isn't given much tine to make their games, despite KotOR 2 only having 1 yr to be made (a year to make an RPG? LucasArts obviously didn't give one care for the quality and just wanted something with the KotOR name on it to make money quick, despite this KotOR 2 was still pretty awesome.) Fallout engine was buggy as all hell anyway so not much for Obsidian to do about that. Alpha Protocol was a straight up failure according to Obsidian and was only released because Sega wanted it to be. If EA let's them use Frostbite and decent dev time, it should be good, especially if Bioware has already implemented those RPG systems to the engine(Frostbite while very versatile, wasn't made for RPGs so Bioware has been making it suitable for DA Inquisition and should afterwards be easy for RPG devs to make their games without too much tweaking of the engine.)
Do it Obsidian. Just contact EA. I am sure they will let ya do it as long as they publish it. I can imagine seeing KOTOR 3 on Frostbite 3 engine. EA could have Bioware in mind, but a collaboration with Bioware/Obsidian could work out pretty well too.
Just put The Old Republic on one Blu-ray with all of the classes and all of the stories. Then allow "pop-in" multiplayer for the Bosses and Team Objectives like White Knight Chronicles, and I would be a happy man.
Please let this happen!
I actually think Bioware is already working on this themselves. But maybe they can hire Obsidian to help out on some of the resources.
Make it so! I'd rather play that than another Mass Effect. But I'll take both. I enjoyed playing KOTR 1 and 2 several times over and enjoyed replaying them more than replaying ME. Still like both, don't get me wrong.
Just don't make it like SWTOR, because i found that game to be awful. Have a nice long SP experience like SW:KOTOR 1 & 2.
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bioware please
Bioware will never do it, nor would I want them to. They fucked up on DA 2 and TOR.
Reason DA2 sucked was because it had around 15 months to make it, while dao had 4 yrs, and they also made a new engine for DA2 which took even more time out (even though it wasn't a very good looking one.) TOR was made in Austin, a new team with the Bioware name stamped on it, and EA moved the mass effect lead writer to help on it, which directly ruined ME3s main Reaper story since not only did they lose their lead writer, he was replaced by Mac Walter, who was mainly a character writer. Thinking EA is finally getting their heads out of their asses, at least concerning Bioware. Dragon Age Inquistion will have 3 1/2yrs of dev time, and its made by the same people (plus Patrick Weekes, who wrote the best parts of ME3) so I have high hopes for that game.
DA 2 was such a monumental F**k up because EA bought out bioware and then , well, you know, EAed all over it.
Obsidian out of work? 2 articles now about them doing either a fallout or Kotor...
They're working on 2 games right now that I know of, project Eternity and South Park. Chris Avellone, one of the main guys at Obsidian and the guy in this interview, is working on the new Torment game now and Project Eternity (don't think he himself is involved with the South Park game, at least creatively) so he particularly is fairly busy. One of the reasons I don't like all this teasing, since it'll be awhile before he even has time to make these games, at least where they'd be his main focus.
i'd rather Obsidian have it than Bioware. If given proper funding and time they would make a superior game, bioware went downhill.
Bioware has two bad games, and one of them is only bad because people didn't like the ending. Dragon Age 2 was clearly rushed. Short of that Bioware's track record is a hell of a lot better than Obsidian. Don't me believe me, go play Alpha Protocol. New Vegas is solid now, but that is because of a year of patches to fix their broken game. Go play an unpatched version of New Vegas and tell me how good of a developer Obsidian is compared to Bioware.
Here is the thing, Knights of the Old Republic 2 was good because it was clone of the first game that took some of the desires that people wanted and added them into part 2. With that said, Kotor 2 was good. The problem is that it was buggy and unfinished. Literally, the game was unfinished. Since then Obsidian has gone on to continue to make buggy games that are unfinished. So, no please don't give these guys Kotor 3, at the very least I would like that game to be finished.
While I agree with you about Obsidian quality of games, it was said that the cause of the bugs and unfinished story of Kotor 2 was because Lucasarts set them a time frame and wouldn't let them finish it. Thus were forced to ship it incomplete. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt to get another Kotor game and not the abysmal trash that Bioware gave us with that terrible mmo.
The publishers never give enough time for Obsidian to polish their games, same happened with Fallout New Vegas, it's almost a curse even. They expect Obsidian to make a masterpiece... and they deliver but with the some bugs, bugs that people blow out of proportion because the games are still playable and FUN.
WELL DON'T FUCK ABOUT!, LET THEM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think if given proper funding and not rushing them Obsidian could do a better job than Bioware at this point. To me Bioware have been slipping from what they once where. Obsidian has really never been given a real chance to make a game that was not rushed, or didn't have proper funding. I would much rather see Obsidian making this game over anybody else.
Bring it! I hope they actually do make a new Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic that would make a ton of people happy!
