  1. Seems someone at Disney realized The Bad Batch is at its best when it's telling the core story. The last two episodes were damn good.

  2. Reached level 32.

    Went to Fassa to finish the pylon quest...

    ... He doesn't give you quest rewards once you're past level 25.

      So much in this game needs fixing! I have taken note of it but I expect someone else will get around to fixing it before me.

      Do you not get any rewards if you just use the energy cell from the Ithorian nearby?

    4. AmanoJyaku



      Fassa doesn't reward you for fixing the power distribution. You can get XP, but only if you choose the right option (computer skills) and do it in the right order (fix the power before speaking with Fassa or Lasavvou).

      Fassa only rewards you for prioritizing the freighters, and it's based purely on your level.

      I suspect the rushed development is what led to this. I don't blame Obsidian, I blame LucasArts for every obstacle they put in place (short development window, tiny budget, no access to K1 information, etc...)

  3. The Bad Batch is turning out to be a bad batch. It's a shame, because it started off great.

      Yeah it's definitely been meandering as of late.

  4. Nearly finished Nar Shaddaa

    Got good loot

    Realized I forgot to install M4-78

    ... FML

      I'm looking forward to the redux of this status update which will be something along the lines of "Got five minutes into M4-78. Realised the magnitude of my error. Formatting my HDD and throwing the computer out the window. FML.".

      lol I beat the game when it came out in 2004. Haven't yet beat it with RCM or M4-78, so I want to try them both.

      Anyway, I backed up the saves. I can always go back to them, although starting the game with three Trandoshan swords, Krath holy armor, and Jal Shey Advisor Armor feels like cheating. The random loot generator was so good to me.

  5. Just rewatched the prequel trilogy. It was worse than I remembered. George Lucas has no talent as a writer.

    Star Wars must be an accident.

      Considering the "improvements" he insisted on making to the original trilogy, I'd say Lucas has no talent period, outside of his ability to monetize SW like a true businessman.

      The Ewoks were originally going to be Wookies

      Yeah, that's why they included that Kashyyyk fight in ROTS, a recycling of the original idea.

      As to writing, remember that the OT scripts were heavily edited by other authors, mostly uncredited. For example. Again, the PT more clearly shows what Lucas was capable of when left without adult supervision.

  9. Fear of nwnnsscomp leads to anger. Anger at nwnnsscomp leads to hate. Hatred of nwnnsscomp leads to suffering.

    Dammit, Yoda...

  10. Wakanda Forever

  11. Reading the Purple Dragon Book, and not happy about it...

      Sith Holocron

      What book are you referring to?

      Compilers: Principles, Techniques, and Tools

      Excellent book, actually. Just long and information-dense. I haven't had the time to play KOTOR for at least two months!!!

      Loving the Mieruko-chan manga!
