Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords is coming to Mac, Linux, and SteamOS alongside a substantial PC update today, more than 10 years after its original launch date. KOTOR 2 goes on sale on Steam and Apple’s Mac App Store for $10. Here’s what you can look forward to.
KOTOR 2 brings support for up to 5K resolution as well as widescreen support and Achievements. Additionally, Steam Cloud and controller support comes in the new version of Obsidian’s sequel to BioWare’s classic RPG. Steam Workshop compatibility means the game’s legendary mod support can continue on Steam across all platforms, too. To that end, the Sith Lords Restored Content Mod – a mode that completes KOTOR 2, which had missing chunks at launch – could well be on its way to the Steam Workshop shortly for anyone to install.
For more on all things Star Wars, stay tuned to IGN.
Only 10 years old, running 10-year-old software (pre-Windows XP).
You’re no longer getting updates for it.
You can’t take it to just any technician for maintenance. (fixmypc.24ex can help you though. We still support back inclusive to Windows 98 offline).
The manufacturer has stopped directly supporting it.
It takes extra care & attention to keep it running well.
It doesn’t have any of the security & safety features that are standard on current computers & software and it can’t be upgraded to include them.
New or current software typically doesn’t run on it.
Your computer works, but it’s nowhere near current. You can probably keep doing what you’re doing, but not with the ability to upgrade or use the latest software, especially not online.
Unlike a classic car, new security threats are arriving daily; threats that you’re unable to protect yourself against to the same level that newer models & updated software would. But just one call could save you the cost of a new computer, for now.
Really digging the love I’ve been getting on here and I’m having a lot of cool conversations lately. If you guys want, remember I made a facebook page and you can message me on there whenever you want if you wanna talk about some gear.
That’s a really easy way to talk, sometimes Tumblr asks are terrible and don’t go through and shit. It’s kind of a nightmare. So that is a really dope option.
I’ve also been taking my stream pretty seriously. So if you’re ever hanging out and I post I’m streaming, definitely come and hang. I drop a lot of info about cool shit happening and coming up. I’ve been busy as hell, so it’s been slow but I’m super glad I’ve waited to do too much content because I have a very important piece of gear coming here for my birthday.
I’ll be streaming tonight around 6 or 7 pm. I’ll post when I go live.
So I’m also considering selling my Limited Edition Blackout Effectors Mantra Overdrive to fund some modulation or speakers for the Rockerverb. It’s incredible, but I have the Bastard Sword coming in soon and it will be less useful. I have like 4 hobbies going and I can’t afford to do this shit on a college RA budget. hahahaha. So something has to go for something to come in.
I’ve been hitting my guitar up the last few days and getting my chops back. They’ve been lacking and I know that. Hopefully you guys don’t give a shit that I’m not a virtuoso. I know gear and tone well enough, so I don’t think it matters. :D You guys seriously fucking rule and I appreciate all of the love so much. You’re the reason I’m still working on making this a proper blog. I’m in talks with a redesign and stepping up my game and getting a new T Shirt designed… so be on the lookout for that!
WAIT!!! I’m rly happy about the update bc Davepeta was saying to ARquius about not being Dave and Nepeta, but a whole different being, and I think this is a rly good representation of being bigender or identifying outside the binary, bc like, you aren’t the two genders or whatever. It’s a different gender altogether. Like how bisexuality isn’t a mix of gay and straight, it’s a whole different sexuality. So special thanks to Hussie for this.
We have some big news to share with you today, so we’ll just cut right to the chase. Wasteland 2 Director’s Cut will be releasing digitally on PC on October 13, 2015! Additionally, for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, digital and physical releases will be coming on October 13th in the Americas, and October 16th Worldwide!
As we’ve said before, anyone who already owns Wasteland 2 on any digital PC retailer will be getting the Director’s Cut as a free update on PC. We’ll have more information as we get closer to release, but it’s our intention to make sure it’s as easy a process as possible. Keep your eyes peeled on our Wasteland 2 forums as we’ll be putting up FAQs and similar in the coming weeks towards release.
For those of you who are still curious about the Director’s Cut contents, features, and changes, or may have missed our discussions on them previously, here are some links that go over some of those new elements in detail.
Quirks, a new set of gameplay-modifying personality traits and characteristics for your squad.
Perks, new bonuses you will be able to pick for your characters as they level up.
Precision Strikes, a combat technique allowing you to you target enemy body parts to inflict debilitating effects and injuries.
And those do not even fully cover all the new additions, like new and expanded voice-over for many of the game’s key NPCs and companions, as well as our extensive rebalancing of virtually every combat encounter, loot drop, and item you’ll find in the game.
We’re now in the home stretch of development. Our final tasks in the several weeks before final release include polishing up the game as much as we can, including tweaks, optimizations, fixes and balance adjustments. We hope you will enjoy the changes and updates as much as we enjoyed bringing them to you.
We’ve got a bunch of new screenshots ready for you for this announcement, showing off some of our graphical updates and changes to our environments and character models. Our art team has worked tirelessly to make sure the Wasteland is more vibrant and detailed than ever, and we’re extremely pleased with the results.
Last Call for Wasteland Playing Cards
As you may well be aware, we’ve partnered with Jackson Robinson and Kings Wild Project to provide you with some awesome Wasteland-themed playing cards. His campaign is in its final hours with just over one day left, so if you want to pick up some of these backer-exclusive cards, now is your last chance.
E3 Coverage & Gamescom
As we mentioned in a previous update, we were at E3 2015 in June, and we had a great experience.It’s exciting and useful for our development to actually get people playing this new version of the game, and we wanted to share some of the E3 coverage with you if you’d missed it previously:
Today we got new update, we present The Story of Boma. Its a short animation where we introduced Boma Naraka Sura background story since not many know about Boma, and also introduce Ghatotkacha character. We hope people will get it more a glimpse history of Boma to understand him better.
So you’re probably wondering where I’ve been the last few weeks. If not, well whatever. :P
A few weeks ago I just moved to another part of Canada so I’ve been settling in as best as possible. The other day I ordered all the parts to a new PC build I’m going to get, and I also had my first job interview since getting laid off at Target earlier in the year.
Well lo and behold the job interview was for none other than working at my dream job in a radio station! I’m very confident I will get this job since I already have ample experience without going to post-secondary.
With that aside, I’ve been meaning to get back into making music again. Sadly my last song, Can’t Pull Me Down didn’t get its lyrics yet and I’m still waiting on them (been about a month and a half now since the original mix has been released).
This new PC build of mine will also allow me to produce my music at a more efficient rate and perform as an excellent gaming rig as well.
So with all of that. Hope everyone is well, don’t expect me on here a lot though. :3
Even an amazing game like The Witcher 3 is never perfect. CD PROJEKT RED will be releasing Patch 1.07 for the game soon which addresses several issues and implements a few changes. The entire patch note list can be seen below as posted on the official website.
So most of my parts are in my local post office, should arrive tomorrow. My case just arrived in Orlando… so hopefully that will come Saturday, I doubt it would come tomorrow.
Then my motherboard is MIA in transit from California. Says estimated date is Tuesday.
Don’t understand that consider a few other parts came from the same warehouse.
So basically next week the build should be done.
