Extra Nerdy: KotOR and LOTR

According to EB Games, Knights of the Old Republic II has been moved up to a December release date. No confirmation from the official site. For what it's worth, Amazon lists the XBOX version as available 2.1.2005, the PC version 12.6.04.

And with all this talk about KotOR, I've forgotten to mention that Lord of the Rings:The Third Age looks pretty damned sweet too. This is an RPG, very similar to KotOR. It will allow you to create your own human, elf, dwarf or orc and explore Middle-Earth around the time of the movies. As with all RPGs you can choose either good or evil, and your character will intersect with the Fellowship at times. Depending on what path you choose, you will either help the Fellowship, or work for Sauron and try to take the ring. It's based on the same graphic engine from the immensely satisfying Two Towers and Return of the King games from EA.

So, KotOR 2, Third Age, Halo 2, and X-Men Legends (long awaited X-Men based RPG) should all come out within 6-8 weeks of each other. To say nothing of Jade Empire, a martial-arts RPG coming from the developer of the original KotOR. Oh yeah, and the sequel to the Mrs. Frinklin's beloved Zoo Tycoon.

Damn, we're going to be poor for a while this fall.
