Does the MMORPG (Star Wars - The Old Republic) answer any questions on the Darth Revan side of things, does anyone know?

Not that I have any inclination to play an MMORPG.

Diablo 2 will never happen now that Blizzard is gone.

Activi$ion will milk it to the ground like everything else they touch. Enjoy your DLC and microtransactions.

Would vote for full throttle but it ain't gonna happen. At least not with the original voice actor (Roy Conrad is dead)

there is a mod for kotor2 in which the guys that made it found out a lot of stuff in the kotor2 source code that didnt make it to the final game, but ITS THERE, coded, and they implemented it back into the game.

i heard its pretty cool, like lots of dialogues and stuff, SPECIALLY near the end of the game.

I need to make myself sometime to play kotor2 again with it

While I agree with you, there is no excuse for a game company to produce a crappy sequel.

While l4d2 and diablo 2 are good games, they failed to even come close to capturing the atmosphere of the original. The companies used the success of the original to promote a mediocre sequel.

Quake 2, quake 4, and doom 3 were all the same crappy game using the success of the original.

They got a sequel, but not the one they deserved.
In that spirit - Master Of Orion 2 deserved a better follow-up.

Agreed - that game was so much more imaginative than all the humorless COD-type soldier sims that seem to dominate these days.

Yup, any game that includes an Angry Kitty Proximity Device in your arsenal deserves a proper sequel. NOLF and NOLF2 are some of my personal all time favorite games. I still remember the Magnus Armstrong tricycle event too. Such a good game. The story, comedy, and even the mini-games within the main game were all so top notch.

Your main gripe with Civ 5 was the plot?

I'm going to definitely say Sacrifice, which was mentioned in the second or third post. Rise of Nations which was also mentioned. And how about Battlezone?

The Lost Vikings - best platformer ever. I was only listing games that had no sequel, but that's one needing another.

OK, that's a very good suggested alternative. Both are great.

Master of Orion 2 (MoO3 fell short of the standard)
Star Control 2 (StarCon3 was meh)
Master of Magic (Fallen Enchantress just does not have the same feel nor depth)
Defense Grid
Pharaoh


I second the Freelancer suggestion.
