    Quality > Quantity

    Some people have a gift for using a lot of words and time to say nothing. So I agree with you, but only if the time is well used and the material is substantial. Otherwise, I'd just recommend doing a proper editing pass and trying again.

    I agree when talking about essays, but in real life quality often trumps quantity. In social situations the ability to talk for 12 hours without problems, even if the talk is not the best, is like being a superman on the battlefield. It's the I win button.

    You assume the entire 12 hour video has not been rehearsed and has been recorded in one piece. I don't think this is the case.

    Don't really care how low quality is, it's still impressive in an autistic sort of way. I sincerely doubt any of you could possibly come up with twelve hours worth of material worth talking about for any video game.
    I don't think you guys fully appreciate just how long 12 hours is. The Hobbit audiobook by Rob Inglis is only 11 hours long, including all the various musical parts.

    The same guy made a retrospective of Morrowind.



    Both videos are really well done and interesting and they are not meant to listen in a single sitting.

    They have some interesting historical information about development of the games that even as a TES fan I didn't know.

    Also he has some interesting theories about main quest of Oblivion.

    All in all I enjoyed listening to both videos and I recommend them.

    There are people who can talk for 12 hours straight.

    Maybe so, but why assume this was done all at once? Especially considering the whole video is broken into segments and the techology to link separate videos into a single entity exists?

    That reminds me of filibuster. I think one of my politicians set the world record for talking 48 hours straight or something in order to delay a bill from being passed in Congress. Do other countries have filibuster?

    Here? It'd be 12+ hours of repeating the word "shit" and/or whining about SJW politics. Just like reading the forums. You'd be a natural.

    I don't assume that. It's just a tangent comment.

    Guy makes videos so rarely, I thought his channel was dead. He definitely doesn't do them in one sitting.

    It took Nintendo 15 years to get hardware powerful enough to run this game.

    I dont really think that this remake is needed.
    BTW is there a total conversion mod that allow us to play story of KOTOR in Jedi Outcast or Academy? This idea materialised inside my head for whatever reason few hours ago and i think it would be cool.

    You can make your own canon. Ergo I consider $hitney to be nothing but the lowest of the low fanfic.

    While I'm not overjoyed to see KOTOR turn into an action RPG, and I'm very scared of how they'll ruin the game, let's not pretend that the original KOTOR combat was something great, even for its time.

    Really not surprised. The game was designed to hide the underlying combat system to make it feel action-oriented, and would be how many remember it.

    Combat was pretty shit tbh. I just spammed my party's best attack most of the time, like Flurry or Force Storm over and over and over.

    I liked combat animations, even if they were everything that was good about the combat.

    Some of the lightsaber animations were pretty cool. I could never get enough of that Jedi leap, whatever it was called, and the "fencing" animations were nice.

    And the action-oriented Jedi games are probably more popular, which is likely the main reason behind the change.

    It was pretty much Neverwinter Nights in Star Wars. At least for me.
