Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II currently cannot be completed on the Nintendo Switch due to a bug

capsule_616x353.jpg

If you wound up grabbing the port of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II for the Nintendo Switch, there's a nasty surprise waiting for you. There's a game-breaking crash that happens without fail, to players that reach the Onderon basilisk crash cutscene. Publisher Aspyr Media appears to be aware of the problem, after users reported it en masse, but they haven't released a fix yet. The game was released on June 8th, and although a patch to resolve the issue is on the way, there's no ETA on when it'll go live. If you're stuck at that same part of the game that everyone else is, you can try removing everyone from your party, which seems to stop the crashing error for a small few, though you might find yourself caught by another glitch later down the line.

I'm not shocked an Obsidian game is buggy, but I am shocked an Obsidian game ported over nearly 20 years later by a new studio is buggy...come on, guys.
Seems perfectly plausible to me since you're piling new, port/remaster-related bugs on top of the old bugs. Also, it's less that it's an Obsidian game and therefore buggy, and more that the game is just blatantly unfinished - in that way it's special for an Obsidian game as it's SUPER EXTRA buggy. It's a good life lesson for everyone: get your contracts on paper, no handshakes. Makes you wonder how and why Feargus (and possibly some other key people) still has any credibility after that SNAFU of a publisher deal.

A game a care about, too, so hopefully it'll get fixed. I'm almost through the first KotOR and that's been relatively smooth sailing.

So they basically ported over vanilla KoTOR 2 unchanged despite knowing this was the state of the game without unofficial patches/the restored content mod. Hilarious that Nintendo even allowed it on the eShop.
Nintendo is also the company that sheltered its hardware designers to the point that they didn't even know what Xbox Live is when it came to demonstrating what they had for the Wii U.

It's appalling... but unfortunately, not surprising.

I’m pretty sure the press release I read said it would have all the restored content. This is pretty sad considering they did in fact realize the state of the unmodded version.

I think this is an issue on other ports too, like the mobile version.

Clearly they didn't want to have to pay the creators of the existing restored content mod, but that being the case, they should've delayed release until they had done the work to add it back in themselves.

    My favorite part about filing taxes is that I always either owe a disportionate amount of money or get literally pennies back.

    Just sit in jail
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    If it was a option just to go to jail for month as opposed to filing taxes I might be tempted, jail ain't that bad atleast in the us.
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    You just go in for a month and come out with no fines or having to pay them anyway, I would be down.

    Good morning degenerates

    hi, good morning
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    @wolffangalchemist here, jail or even simple detention is instead a way to get debts on you by the state
    outright
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because its not "free", its only free if you stay there but then they want you to pay up once you get released, for all the "shitty service" and abuse they gave you
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I'm not fucking kidding
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's how its set up over here
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and you'll never be able to get out of those debts unless..you commit a crime...thus making an endless cycle
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they are "smart" you see
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they're just bastards if you ask me lol
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    some homeless people commit crimes or a lot of misdemenors to get into detention so they have some place to stay even, but of course it will never solve their finances, quite the opposite
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so yea....its really messed up if you ask me
