Share your favourite moments from Obsidian games and win consoles!

As many people on here will say, my favourite experience in an Obsidian game was in Knights of the Old Republic II.

I say experience rather than a specific moment in the game, as it was the realisation of how deep and personal a game could be. At this stage I was playing the usual RPGs such as the Final Fantasy series on Ps One and 2 and other JRPGs I can't remember.

I enjoyed the stories and gameplay and did everything optional I could, but nothing I did really affected the characters or story. I didn't even realise that was possible until I bought the original X Box and a copy of KOTOR 2.

Then I started the game, and had dialogue choices, and then saw how these choices and actions influenced my companions and their stories. But here was the most amazing thing - the choices and the influence I had over my companions made them seem real, like people, like friends. I wanted them to overcome their haunted past, resist their anger and realise their potential.

And I did this, and it made it feel like this was my game; my own unique version of the universe that existed solely for me. And that agency and ownership is something that has become a massive draw for me in gaming all the way through the console generations since then, and I imagine until I hang up my controller.

So thank you Obsidian, for helping me realise that games as a medium had a deeper side, a thoughtful side that could affect me and, as I realised, that I could affect right back.

GAME cancels Resident Evil 7 Collector's Edition orders due to broken Baker Mansion statues

I've seen one of the damaged models in my local Gamestop. There was quite a big hole in the roof, not just a missing chimney. Definitely not a clean break.

A pity, because it's really nice.

Lego Dimensions is probably the only place you'll see Gandalf and a DeLorean together

I work in Gamestop, and the price we have for the starter pack, on current-gen at least, is 140.


Not sure I love Lego that much.

I know. In theory. But my many years of killing (digital) humans hasn't really affected me, as uaually they're my adversary. Killing the cat wasn't necessary and so bothered me.

Was there really a need to kill the cat? I know it's strange, but violence to animals in games and films really disturbs me.

I say this having thrown molotov cocktails at school buses. In-game of course.

The XBox Live Indie channel still isn't available in Ireland sadly. So many great games that I'd have eagerly bought being made unavailable. Including this one.

Thanks Microsoft

Great news. Loved this game, by far the best of the three. And the reason I bought the original X Box

Grand Theft Auto 5 Collector's Edition includes a real-life money bag and cap

Not my cup of tea to be honest. Though it's an interesting take on a collectors edition. I'll get the normal version and keep the extra cash for the numerous other games and consoles being released around the same time.
