It is Christmas Eve and, well, now Christmas since it is past midnight here.

I've been having a huge string of bad luck. The computer had a coolant leak for months and I have no idea how much the repairs will be, staring at games I want to play but can't due to the computer being down and out(I know, some can be for console but I've grown very used to PC Gaming) and just being down right unlucky.

Though Steam showed that I could run Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on the laptop with ease. Granted, it doesn't look picture perfect but its something to play.

I remember KOTOR very fondly. I got it with my Xbox when I was younger and I played it half to death. I was in love with the story and the sense of the Star Wars adventure. I loved the characters, I loved my female character romance with Carth, I loved HK-47, Mission, etc... there were very few dislikes with that game. The big twist in the middle(No spoilers from me!) had me dropping the controller and going 'SON OF A BITCH, HOW DID I NOT SEE THAT!?'

It was extremely satisfying and the ending(Light side, biatches) left me satisfied and feeling as if I was part of a journey.

Even if Bioware made some parts of it official canon, I still carry the story *I* told with my character to heart.

Now, playing it again, I get that sense of adventure once again. I picked a blonde with the Scout background this time and decided to try a build with a mix of Consular. I'm discovering parts I didn't realize with different characters and even spots I missed but tried again.

Even if I revisit KOTOR for Christmas Eve, it does make me thankful for it. It makes me smile and happy to have played and enjoy such a game. Its right up there with City of Heroes, and other old SNES and other classics I've played.

Merry Christmas, everybody! And be thankful for things you already have!

Hi Amy! How are you? I'm fine. :D It's our semestral break! Guess what, I took an exam in a really fancy college, but I'll still get my results on the first week of January, so how are you?
