KoTOR [Jun. 20th, 2011|10:16 pm]
I finally beat KoTOR!

You see, the first time I played it, back in, um. averylongtimeago, it turns out that if, by dint of very careful selection of Force powers so as to take absolutely no offensive powers whatsoever, just defensive type stuff because you want to be super-uber-goodguy-lightside?

The final boss battle is REALLY REALLY REALLY HARD. As in, you have to fight it eight times in a row because you have no way of preventing the boss from refueling back to full health.

So I couldn't beat it. Gave up, wrote a cranky letter to lucasarts/bioware support, and moved on.

But recently Jerry was replaying it a bit for game review, and I got a bee in my bonnet and decided I would give it another go.

This time? Final boss fight was Easy. As. Pie. Used up all of three life support packs and half a shield. Didn't even bother with stims. Just a whole lot of force speed and master flurry for 6 attacks per round, thankyouverymuch.

Bioware talks a good game about open-ended roleplaying games, where you can make whatever character you want and still do okay. But in the end, you need someone who can duel the Sith master or fight the rocket-launcher-wielding mutants or whatever.

Force speed rocks.
