"Pleasure’s fun. It’s great, but you can’t keep it going forever; just accept the fact that it’s here and it’s gone, and maybe then again, it will come back, and you’ll get to do it again. Joy lasts forever. Pleasure is purely self-centered. It’s all about your pleasure: it’s about you. It’s a selfish, self-centered emotion, that is created by a self-centered motive of greed. Joy is compassion. Joy is giving yourself to somebody else, or something else. And it’s a kind of thing that is, in its subtlety and lowness, much more powerful than pleasure. You get hung up on pleasure; you’re doomed. If you pursue joy; you will find everlasting happiness.” - George Lucas

My greatest fear is that they bowdlerise HK-47.

Meh, call me when Super Bombad Racing gets an HD remake. 😉

I’m excited for this!

Pissed oooooooooofff!!! (Xbox-boy here)

Seriously though, this reveal confirmation makes me excited. The idea of canonizing Revan’s story is extremely appealing to me. KotOR is not only probably one of the easiest of the Legends canon to fold back into the Disney canon (as it’s so far removed from the timeline of the vast majority of content released by them so far), it’s also one of the best and most revered of all Star Wars stories in the franchise, revered by me especially. This remake is a no-brainer. And I’m very interested to see how they handle it all (story, characters, gameplay and RPG elements) with a modern sensibility.

Just slightly annoyed I gotta wait longer to experience it. But, if the PC version get released first (alongside PS5) I may just go with that.

I hate Sony.

Dear God, please don’t screw this up.

I don’t really know how this will work within the Disney canon’s more compressed timeline, nor how much of the story they’ll change, but I hope the vast majority of the changes are confined to gameplay and graphics. They’ve hired new writers, but I hope those writers tread lightly and keep the essence of the game intact. I don’t trust them to do that, but I hope they do.

My default primary emotion about upcoming Star Wars is dread. I hope my fears are misplaced and this turns out to be good.

It seems like they’re kind of being ambiguous about its canon status. Honestly, I kind of hope they do fit it in somehow, I’d rather them take a risk and make some changes rather than it being an exact copy of the original.

I know some people have wondered how it could be canon if rpgs by their nature let you choose your own story path, but I think it is easy enough to deal with if you accept that their is just a canon version of events, just like we accepted it back before the Disney acquisition. Also, I think future Star Wars storytelling could simply create frame stories that these games, novels, etc. are being told from, which allows some flexibility on the canonicity of certain story details. Does that make sense?

I made the joke before, but I now kinda want an HD remaster (or at the very least, a Steam/PSN/Xbox Live Arcade release) of Super Bombad Racing or even a new Star Wars-themed Mario Kart clone.

They should make a new SW themed racing game that takes itself seriously. As for this? I don’t know, is it a real remake or a new game on top of the original bones?
