One of my friends keeps trying to get me to play Eve Online.

I am so going to do the opposite; restrict to only profane words and memetic jargon.

Ohshi... I forgot there was a new KOTOR coming! *looks at her laptop* Something tells me I won't be running it, tho... Considering the amount of stuff I have to do to make NWN2 work. (Original Campaign: totally not worth it. Mask of the Betrayer: HELL YES on every level, even if the Skein does leave me curled up in a ball crying in terror by the end of it every. single. time.)

There are rumors of two KOTOR. One being an online mmorpg. The other being a 3rd in the franchise of the others.
I only played NWN2 for a few seconds, and was not happy with it. The controls, and the camera angles killed it for me.
I have played a little bit of Star Trek Online. I will say that I am not really impressed with it. The graphics are not impressive, and the space controls are a little, awkward.

Like I said. The original NWN2 campaign is teh suck. Mask of the Betrayer, on the other hand, is well worth the cost of the original and the expansion. It's brilliant. It's brilliant, atmospheric, at times devastatingly clever, funny, and yes there are times it leaves me curled up gibbering with terror because when it wants to, it can really pull a Grade-A Mind Screw.

I hope those rumors are true. I love me some KotOR, but mostly for the storyline, and the difficulties in translating it into an MMO environment would probably gut it.

As for the STO space controls, they do take some getting used to, but once you get an escort they feel much smoother. I'd also recomend mapping the "Fire all weapons" function to the space bar, as it makes combat much quicker. Probably best used if you keep photon torps equipped as other torpedoes have slower reload times.

I know the MMO rumors are true as there are videos of the game, and it does look nice. As for the 3rd in the franshise I haven't heard anything about it.. Except the rumors that they were to be making one.

What I would love to hear about is the next elder scrolls game. That they are supposedly gonna make. You can tell that they make good games in the aspect that they don't rush them and take 5 years between games. With 5 years coming up for the next one. Yet I never played the expansion for some reason when I loved the games.

I have not played Star Trek since that initial play... Have not had any interest to play it again.
