    That would be great for both of you! :D

    That solid-state hologram technology sounds very interesting. Lots of possibilities there. [face_thinking]

    I was playing KOTOR II the other day and I was trying to get influence with Visas, so I did this quest on Nar Shadaa in which you have an option of freeing an astromech droid from a junk dealer or the darkside option which is supposed to get you influence with her. That was to grab the droid's memory core and scrap the body, and then extort its friend/coworker droid into giving me some of its integral parts. Needless to say, not only did I lose influence with T3 (and he wasn't even there!!), but I also immediately felt [face_sick] and loaded a previous save so I could do the light side version.

    Also, finals next week and then summer for me! [face_tired]

    HK worked well (to say at least) with politicians, so that should be interesting. :p


    Good luck with your finals, tj! :) Mine are starting this week and finishing in June. [face_worried] Oh well, my memory card is loaded and ready to go! :p

    Nice Vid.

    I can't do any of the dark side stuff in that game. I know that the people are only pixels on a screen, but it makes me feel bad to do evil things to them.

    Same. I played KOTOR countless of times and I wanted to experience all possible endings, but I had to made myself play through DS. I really enjoyed the nearly-glowing face my Revan as he was so amazing and lightside-ish. :D :p

    the only good part of being dark side in KOTOR is killing everyone on Korriban. unfortunatly, my comp wont run KOTORII, so i have no idea what ace is talking about.

    We were all the way back on page three.

    Dark side is still no fun. There is also a good line between Dark side, and assassination protocols.

    I wonder what the first droids were like. Even before Xim's war droids.

    I'd expect more wires. ;) (especially as the first lightsabers were also wired) :p

    and they weren't sentient. They were mindless drones.

    Well, it is kind of hard to define where consciousness of the AI starts, really. One could argue that the "present-day" SW Fifth-Degree droids are mindless droids (because that is essentially how they're programmed). Yet look at LB from KOTOR comics. Even though he's Fifth-Degree himself, there is still something about him which will probably be explained in later issues. Even thugh being mainly stupid, LB does have a certain level of understanding and the ability to make a progress (which is one of the components in the definition of intelligence).

    The protocol droid makes some good points.

    I honestly have to wonder why certain types of droids were made/given sentience/sapience. Protocol droids, for instance. Much as I love Threepio... he's a translator. Seriously, he could be reduced to a speaker grille and dictionary to be worn on a lapel. Like the ST combadge, for comparison.

    It gives the story depth. Where would Star Wars be without droids? *pauses to think* absolutely nowhere. it wouldnt be as cool, anyways.

    Indeed. SW fans would not have quoted the amazing odds of passing through an asteroid field (which are 3720:1) for yeas and years after C-PO spoke the epic line. ;) :D
