I played Chapter 12. Man, I’m on top of things!  I was a month behind on Major Fuzzikins.

***SPOILERS***

Immediately, I’m supposed to go someplace “private” to talk to our friend Valkorion.  Uh… he’s in my head. Why exactly do I have to wander the wilderness for this? I could just take him to my personal commander office/bedroom or even the john – I mean “fresher” – if privacy is a thing.  He’s never before worried about others being around when he annoyingly yabbers in my ear.

And then, for the rest of the chapter, I’m still alone, even after the private moment has passed.  Let me get this straight… I’m supposed to recruit and recruit and recruit, just so in this chapter I can have zero companions to help me out. Instead, I get a magical backpack.

My impressions of this chapter are clouded by the extreme difficulty I had in clicking all the things I had to click.  I mean, they were damn twitchy and you had to be standing in the right spot, or they wouldn’t be clickable at all.

However, I love the cairns that let you leap from place to place.  There are often times when I am frustrated by having to follow the road around a canyon or snaking up to the top of the hill, and these shortcuts were wonderful.  And they don’t depend on my deficient jumping skill.  More please.

Not much to say about Satele and Marr who are getting their scout merit badges in the wilderness.  They kept whining about the force.

Well, I’m not a force user, so whoop dee.  Like Shintar said, this story seems disconnected from non-force-users at this point.  I made a force… gun?  Seems weird to use magic at an altar for a pew pew blaster.

What I really wanted to hear about was what the two of them have been doing this whole time in the woods.  I smell a scandalous affair.  This is why I did not flirt with Satele when presented with the opportunity.

Do I want ghost-Marr haunting my base in revenge? I think not.

But, you ask, what about my Romance with Koth? Will he? Won’t he? Does he ever wear those damn goggles? Stay tuned!

Chapter 12: Visions In The Snark — 4 Comments

  1. This was a weird chapter for me. Its also the only chapter of KotFE where I died. How did I die you might ask… from one of the many beasties? from the extreme uberness of Valkorion or perhaps Vayla? No, no, and… no. No ma’am, in a spasm of directional impairment I turned and ran the wrong way and… I fell off the edge of the world. Yep. Who knew Odessen was flat?

    At this point, I’m barely playing SWTOR, since I’ve found another MMO (yep… there’s always another stone waiting to be turned) which is sucking up most of my gaming time. I am checking in for all of the monthly updates, but not doing heroics, star fortresses or much of anything else, and that has made the last two monthly installments seem odd and disjointed for me. I didnt hate them, but they havent exactly been compelling either.

    My Sith Sorcerette (yep.. dude playing a chick.. but you know what? whoever the woman is who does the Inquisitor’s voice is freaking awesome. I could listen to her be evil all day) did flirt with with Satele because.. of course.. and where could it possibly go?

      • I don’t even remember what she said, to be honest. I think she just blew me off entirely, and didnt even dignify my flirt with a direct response.

  2. Yeah, KotFE is really clunky if you’re not playing a force user. I tried with my smuggler and couldn’t get through the first couple chapters. Sticking to my guardian and Inq from here on out
