Next Time: Look, Sir, Droids!

Post by Evan » 07 Jun 2012, 13:32

As mentioned on the most recent session of OA, the next lesson of the day will be droids, specifically those in SWTOR, although, as always, we'll be drawing the parallels between those in the game and those archetypes from the movies and books.

Let's get a good start on the prep for next class by having you to tell us which droid(s) is(are) your favorite(s) in The Old Republic and why!

Well of course it's HK-47, you meatbag. Lol I miss hearing that, he's definitely my favorite simple because he's so badass.

Just a reminder, we'll probably be recording the middle of next week (6/20-ish). So, if you have anything droid-related you'd like us to discuss, mention it in here or tweet us @OssusAcademy.

C2-N2! :lol:
The HK series would be kinda cool. I never got to finish KoTOR 2 so I never got to see much more of them than right before meeting the Echani master. Are there TOR equivalents of the GNK power droids more commonly known as "gonk")?

Actually, unless i'm completely mistaken, the Foundry/HK-51 story threads from SWTOR are tied to some of the cut content from KOTOR 2, content which featured a factory world that produced the HK-50's that were after you through most of that game.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong and those are two separate yet nearly identical story elements.

I haven't played the instance yet, but I'm fairly certain that Revan implied that it was a Rakatan installation after you speak to him at the end of Malestrom (or was it T5?).

Consider yourself corrected!

Ya know, every time I think, "Oh, this episode will be a short one," it turns into another hour-and-a-half long show. Not complaining. Just funny.

Thanks to everyone for your input on this episode! That always makes it easy for us to get excited and then we wind up talking even more. Editing begins tonight!
