Episode IX Star Wars binge, part 4 (more KOTOR)




I started to play Xbox Knights of the Old Republic for the first time in advance of Star Wars Episode IX ... although I've owned it for 15 years!  


On Monday I played for another hour or so.  I'm still on Taris but I have seemingly finished the sewers/Vulkar Swoop Bike prototype engine mission.   I  won the subsequent Swoop bike racing heats (not hard at all), and the female Jedi Bastila has been freed and she is a member of my party now.   I think I learned something about fighting in the Vulkar base sequences - use an Ion grenade to disable enemy personal force-fields,  *and* activate personal force-fields for all 3 members of your fighting party.   Don't forget to lob frag grenades too.   (also - manually save.  Frequently).  I have a couple unfinished missions which should earn me some credits at the very least, so next time I play I'll be wandering around the Cantinas and Apartments to complete those. 


Favorite parts of KOTOR so far .... running into the Rankor and my party getting demolished by it several times;  fighting Gamorrean Guards; seeing the various alien species walk about, species we first saw in A New Hope's Cantina scenes;   and the accurate SW sounds such as  Wookie bleats and growls . 


Edit update 11.25.2019 ... I finally got done with Taris and I believe I only need to defeat 2 ruins protector droids before I can leave Dantooine. Problem is, I am low on supplies.  Taris was on the dull side. Dantooine has Jedis and lightsaber action! I'm not sure I am in the mood to play the entire game though. I have other, more action packed games to play!

Star Wars!

Time on Taris is toooooo looooooong. It's probably the weakest aspect of the otherwise great game, in my opinion. That and the fact that Aspyr hasn't gotten around to updating the iPhone version to work on iPhone 11 Pro. :sad:


I wish we could have some more episodes like this. SWTOR was supposed to be it, but the MMO structure kinda wrecks it. I'd love a KOTOR Maker which would allow us to design characters, environments, stories, and voice acting to do our own thing in this world.

I was unable to defeat Bendak Starkiller in the Taris arena. No matter what I did, i lost. And then after beating the Sith Governor the story progressed to leave the city. I would have received a lot of credits for that oh well.
