    I was visiting my sister this week and watched a few episodes of the Clone Wars cartoons with my nieces (low double digit age range). (They’ve seen the entire series fifty eleven million times, I have maybe seen an episode or two.)

    What struck me above all else is how this series retroactively made all the prequels even worse. The episode I saw this week had a complex plot on honor, betrayal, the code of soldier, the conscience of the individual – but all the time I’m thinking “they’re going to jetison all these philosophical musings right out the airlock when Order 66 comes down the comm link”Report

    KOTOR II is, in ways, a deconstruction of KOTOR.Report

      Which is why I love it so much. I’m a sucker for a good deconstruction.Report

        One of the best lines was getting chided for thinking that massacring your way across four planets somehow reconnected you with the Force.

        Of course, Kreia’s general hatred of the fact that the existence of the Force kicked free will in the face, and her plans for fixing THAT were pretty awesome. Pity the ending was seriously cut down. Even with the restoration mod, there’s a lot of clear “We were building towards this” and Kreia ends up not really ending the way she should haveReport

        Just follow it on Steam.

        BTW it is good. It’s set in a sorta medieval Provence. Nice and sunny, nice change from Skellige and Novigrad. Lot’s of pretty flowers, olive trees, vinyards, and Mediterranean architecture. And there is the house you can put stuff in like Skyrim. And of course, mission to get stuff to put in your house.Report

    After putting in about 60 hours on XCOM 2 over the course of the last couple of weeks, I’m finally at what appears to be the final mission. I’m a little hesitant to play it just yet, because I’ve managed to get this far while losing only a couple of guys and I’m worried I’ll lose more. I know, I know, that’s just what happens sometimes in this game, but I’ve gotten attached to my guys, dammit.Report
