I haven't written many fannish things in a good long while. Well, here's something.
I recently started playing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. I'd first had a go some time ago, but I obviously wasn't in the right mood because I abandoned it quickish. I vaguely remember being annoyed by combat and a perceived infodump, but I didn't have that problem at all this time.
I'm playing a male character, as I often do. I have no idea why but often when I play a male, I feel like I can make my true choices whereas when I'm female, I tend to get a bit more badass/daring/less compassionate. You're welcome to make up a theory for that, because I seriously haven't a clue. XD
I'm enjoying the ragtag bunch of misfits in my party. Bioware is always good at those. I formed an immediate attachment to Carth, due to him being voiced by the same actor and serving a similar role to Kaidan from Mass Effect. Kaidan was my canon!Shepard's romance (which consequently leaves me full of feels for him), but he was also a genuinely good character and I always hated disappointing him. Similarly, I don't want to act in a way that meets with Carth's disapproval. Not that I do very often - my character is already ridiculously Light.
Anyway, KOTOR is good so far, even though I'm not overly fond of Star Wars. I think I'll have another go at Jade Empire in the future too.
