[SWTOR] First Look At Star Wars: The Old Republic from BioWare

Nice video...

Shows alot of the combat as well as some of the creatures and the developers talking about what they wanted to do with the game. Also, they stated that they are making this game to be unlike any other game out there right now. So hopefully, it won't be another WoW clone.

Just looks like WoW with Star Wars skins.

No thanks.

I didn't know about this before just watching the video. I dunno--the people they interviewed seemed to be saying a lot of things, but from what was shown of the game, I'm not impressed. Besides, I don't really care for online multiplayers much. And i hesitate to invest in a game where gameplay/storyline is based on multiplayer alone. I guess we'll see.

Yep I'm disappointed.
I have played KOTOR, and KOTOR2 and I don't think I'll play this one.

You can say that about the entire MMO genre. How about, instead of mindlessly spouting hate, actually say something constructive?


You've only seen a fraction of the game so far: just some generic combat. Yes, it has the same feel to it as WoW, but thats a good thing! The game looks fantastic, and you can be sure it will look and run great even on a P4/x1600 xt. The only other developer that can make claim is Valve.

You're taking this WAYYYY too seriously.

I said it looks like WoW with Star Wars skins. Looks implying physical appearance or graphics. And it does look like WoW graphically.

Didn't mean to hurt your feelings.

I dont think it looks too bad, how many games these days allow you to annihilate your friends with a lightsaber.
