Its not coming to PC. The PC game is Jedi Academy - a completely different game- which was released at roughly the same time.
As for the release date, it was origionally due in may but was put back - then it changed to some time in early september then we (@EB) had a firm street date of 23 september.

It will not be coming to any console other than XB. You can quote me on that - its an XB-only thing. The other consoles will be getting other star wars games, I know GC is getting a rogue squadron redo or something similar. PS2 is getting something, I just cant remember what.

Might wanna check your sources dude, its definitely coming out for PC

You should probably check the official KOTOR site before making silly posts like that.

completion questions
whew - what a great game! not exactly the most difficult combat-wise even with a scout/sentinel. Juhani cranked so much more than I did. It always pays to use the heal kits from inside the inventory menus - that way it gives you the health instantly, instead of at the end of the round, amd you can still do your master flurry or wotnot! That definetely helps when such massive damage is being shelled out in some of the later battles

I never did find that evil protocol droid - is that his head that you find in the kasshyk shadowlands? Not to worry - had no time for any non-jedi by the end of the game, Juhani dual wield and Jolee kitted up in dark jedi robes looking all Shaft like :p

the game has the most awesome starwars storyline - far, far better than the movies, especially the new ones . The graphics were top-notch (the starforge made me drool), despite the fact that they could've done with more facial models for humans. Darth Malak is so much more badassed than vader!!! Well, until I kicked his sorry ass and made him grovel... Anyway, was great to play as light side, but will definetely be giving dark side a go on the higher difficulty setting at some stage...

well boyz, since HL2 is sooo delayed I guess we'll be hanging out for Halo2 - anyone seen the E3 demo video?? Looks pretty schmint!

you buy the evil protocol droid from the droid shop on tatooine...

you use him to talk to the sand people, so you don't have to kill them for czerca corp.. gaining light side instead of darkside points...

also you use him to escape from darth malaks ship when the ebon hawk is captured...

after exams I think I'm gonna play the game through again ev0l style.

Sounds like an excellent game - being a huge star wars fan (well, a fan of the original trilogy), sounds like my perfect game!

Do you guys reckon its worth buying an Xbox for?

How funny is getting some action from Bastila I also heard that if you play as a female you can kill carth how good would that be! He's such a snivelling little bitch. Also did anyone make the family on dantooine kill each other?
By the way jeneaux its fucking great game.

Finished it twice now. The lightside was by far easier, but the darkside was way more fun.

Anyone have suggestions for some decent rifles/ heavy weapons for Canderous and HK-47. Planning on playing it a 3rd time through as a Dark Scoundrel/ Consular and I doubt I'll have any other Jedi's in the group by the time I reach the Star Forge...

playing darkside can you get juhani to turn dark again, or get her to join you as a dark jedi?

How do you score Bastilla?
Im playing as a Light side chick atm, Maybe i should turn dark again to kick carths ass.


Having the family kill each other is gold!

Never thought of that. I suppose it might be possible if she has a side quest like everyone else seems too...

I didnt notice any droid shop on dantooine... ah well, may have been one of those late nights. I definetely didnt get any darkside points for slaughtering the sandpeople, but i didnt get light points thats for sure annoying mofos anyway.

i doubt that you could get juhani to turn back to the dark side, but u never know I guess. If you're a dark jedi then why would you spare her?

Evan - zaalbar's bowcaster is pretty good as far as rifles go I thought, when fully modded up. That said, rifles are pants compared to sabres

yeah, was cool to pull bastila - gotta love english accents 8-) darkside female will be the go for me then, carth does deserve to die and who knows, maybe bastila will be up for a bit of girl on girl action

I didn't really notice how bad the XBOX controller was till I started playing PGR2. Now I get cramps from that Right Trigger button. Really must get one of the new smaller ones.

Haven't played KOTOR yet but I heard it was a rather simplistic RPG.

quick question, does the frame rate in this game improve beyond Taris? on the the first level and running round Taris it seems to be sitting around the 20fps mark. does it get any better because its actually annoying me atm. i'm playing the X-box

hehe thanks for the updates

Had and played it, probably my best gaming experience of 2003. Top notch game. Tried playing it through a second time as darkside, but it really didn't do it for me, light side all the way.

Not really that replayable imo, but i'd grab a sequel in a heartbeat.

On the PC I found the framerate did indeed go higher off Taris, dunno about the Xcocks. Taris is a really big, open area (at least on the upper level, so it should get better i'd imagine.

i would hope it picks up after this city hey, because its absolutely shocking.

how any company can release a game that doesnt run at a steady 30fps is beyond me. its that damn jerky.

having said that,m i'm not even that impressed by the graphics at all, very average. would have thought it would run smoother with these graphics.

really? i've found it incredibly off putting. i posted it in the hyperactive forums. it just really shits me to no end, its so rough. graphics dont make a good game (which is a good thing because the graphics arent impressing me neither) but this frame rate is just grinding. i dont understand why the game is on one big stutter all the time.

anyone know if EB would accept a swap for another game if i took it in tomorrow with receipt?

i've spent 4 hours playing the game and not seeing an improvement so yeh, finally had enough, its actually making me sick to watch

My pc doesn't have any frame rate trouble? i'm running 2xAA & 2xAF as well. maybe ATI cards have issues with KOTOR?

I guess I kinda 'cheesed' it by using grenades a lot. What PH0RC3 POWAHS do you have? (I did end up reloading that battle a couple of times IIRC).

I had my main character take on the two dark jedi & Saul while Bastila & Carth took out the others. stasis works well on them all. wasn't a very hard battle

after this battle when you go down to the ebon hawk you have to fight Malak:
i kicked his arse all over the place! i seriously could have killed him quite easily had the storyline not interfered

force push works on him. he saves a lot from stasis. my character started out as a scoundrel & uses two (modified) full size lightsabers. i also use adrenal stimulants before big battles like that (or as soon as i can provided i'm not going to get my backside kicked while taking them). they really help with your chance to hit, how much damage you do, & how many attacks you get per round. with the help of a couple of items i wear my strength & dexterity are both at about 20 (or something like 19 & 20). oh and duelling shields help protect against hits too.

Saul has the most life and takes the longest to die. Kill everyone else first. I found having one member of the group lobbing grenades at the sith troopers and the other two going hand to hand worked best for me.

Load up on stims and force powers 1st thing, of course...
