I have it too from Amazon, are the touch controls decent? On the PC, the mouse can really be the only control you'd need. I've got the 5th generation Fire, but it's only 16GB and I really don't have the space for a 3GB game, and as Noise pointed out, it wouldn't move to the SD card I have installed.

Finished all the duels, including taking some dark side points to defeat Bendak Starkiller, but that comes with a ton of experience, lots of credits and even his more powerful blaster, plus a bounty to collect later in the game. Works for me!

So I have the Japanese version of this game (which is fully in english), but my modded Xbox's power board bit the dust a few years back, I purchased a replacement Xbox (same version so Power Board will work) like a year ago, finally got around to swapping it out today and started playing KOTOR, when I first played them I played like an angel, this time, SITH BABY, ALL SITH!

I said screw it and started an all new character build rather than reverting to my old save. I wanted to reallocate some early stat and feat points, so this was as good a time as any. I'll be going for a scout/sentinel build, which is one that I've never done oddly enough. Jack of all trades baby!

And now for a minor spoiler, but an honest question:
Does anyone else feel like it's sort of bullshit that you have to take darkside points in order to take down Bendak Starkiller? Sure it's done under the auspice of an illegal death match duel, but the guy's a cold blooded killer plain and simple. After cutting a wide and bloody swath through the Black Vulkar gang, you get penalized for taking down this guy? Seems like a classic case of narrative dissonance to me. Furthermore, you don't get any darkside points for killing Selvin the assassin, and you can take the bounty for her just like Bendak. Shenanigans I say!

NNNNOOOOO don't let those mean kids thrown rocks at the ithorian. You monster!!!!

That part always got me as a kid.

I am passing on the game this month as I have beaten it when it first came out. I hope you all enjoy it, it was a lot of fun.

Has any one noticed the rampant number of soul patches worn by human males in this game? It's practically ubiquitous. I think when Bioware was told to patch the game they misunderstood ...

You clearly don't remember life in the early 00's.

Don't fret over a few dark side points. Get some more light side points and they'll be wiped right away. It's really not hard to counter dark side points in this game. More than enough opportunities for light side overcharging.

Yeah, I found it was harder to maintain 100% dark because sometimes you'd get light side points unless you did something colossally stupid and against your best interests. And since being 100% either way gives you some nice stat bonuses it was a real pain.

Absolutely. I found easy ways to get light points that more than certainly erased the dark points I got vs. Bendak Starkiller. I also picked up the 300 credits from Zax for that kill. I still think it was worth it, his blaster is much better than the stock ones you get.

To go with what Nullpointer said, I think it's kind of pointless to get darkside points anyway (but yes, it was an unsanctioned deathmatch). I did a little research, people on various forums were trying to figure out how to do that duel without getting darkside points in the first place.
