    Looks like the original game is coming to Switch. That's good enough for me, especially at $15.

    Definitely very good for me. I never played the original game back in the day. I have watched other people playing KOTOR on YouTube plus SF Debris' review of it. Looking forward to doing my own playthrough of the game itself and I even have my own take of the player character in mind.

    KOTOR II was Obsidian using Bioware engine.

    I'm curious if they are going to retain the original d20 game mechanics. That was something coming from the d20 OGL craze but this pen-and-paper originated mechanics might feel awkward these days.

    This is one potential answer. KOTOR doesn't fit with the Disney cannon. We haven't had a lot of things reference events prior to the High Republic, but KOTOR the game establishes some things that could be problems down the line. So I'd imagine there's some massaging of the story to fit the new EU cannon.

    For the record, I'm not a fan of super strict continuity so while this is likely a factor, it gets a big shoulder shrug from me.

    The other reason is KOTOR did have things left out due to the social climate of the time, such as the potential lesbian relationship the game strongly hints at for a female Revan. Hell relationships for the female Revan need a rewrite anyways. I've said that earlier in the thread, and I'll stand by that. The Carth/Female Revan relationship is pretty pointless.

    I'd also say that smoothing out the dialogue options so things escalate in evil/good would be great. You can be 100% lightside and still have the option to rob a widow blind. Or 100% dark and still do a light side swerve at the end. That has never made sense.

    If I can't have a romance with Zaalbar in the remake this game is a total pass for me.
