Knights of the Old Republic 2 Gets Massive Update 10 years After Launch

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords is coming to Mac, Linux, and SteamOS alongside a substantial PC update today, more than 10 years after its original launch date.

KOTOR 2 brings support for up to 5K resolution as well as widescreen support and Achievements. Additionally, Steam Cloud and controller support comes in the new version of Obsidian's sequel to BioWare's classic RPG

The problem with remasters is that the games which need it most are ignored while a bunch of last gen cash grabs flood the market. This is a franchise that desperately need a remastered edition. These updates are great and all but whats the point in playing KOTOR 2 in 4K when the textures are from a decade ago?

SO then technically you just answered your own question as to why games like this don't get remastered....Its over 10 years old, didn't look amazing to begin with and would require waaaayyyy too much work and not make enough money for the publisher

I'm not so sure it's that actually . It's probably more a matter of licensing and who's available to do it .

Between disgruntled bioware that only swears by them with Baldur and Kotor 1-2 ... people that want a proper not rushed and unfinished version of the second game ... and Star Wars right in the middle of a big revival and push . Plus so much use of the revan lore in the Kotor mmo ..

I'm sure it could make some nice money

I would pay $60 a piece for KOTOR 1&2 remasters for PS4. I need to get a gaming PC.

Absolutely loving this update, as I had only ever played the first KOTOR. It's still one of my favourite games of all time :)

Breaking The Wall: 10 Memorable Grindspots Across the Video Game Landscape

VGChartz's Issa Maki: "Grinding and video games go hand in hand; it's one of those things that we've all done. If it's not some powerful wand or armor to yearn over, it could be overcoming a boss that's had your number for weeks. Certain deals are too good to pass up when they're on the table; others can't be unseen once revealed. An element of catharsis also factors into this equation, the dulling repetition of harvesting crops or mining ore has a soothing effect that feels nice after a hard day's work.

Even if it can be embarrassing and we have to excuse ourselves afterwards, grinding is one of those facets of video games that's as natural as having to press a button to jump. Compiled for your pleasure is a list of some of the more memorable 'grindspots' I've come across in the gaming world."
