star wars the old republic. Not really a sequel, but just an online MMO that is attempting to be wow with lightsaber.

complete with cartoony clone wars style, and having your jedi collect 20 rankor skins.

Should have kicked Obsidian in the nuts and let Bioware make a KOTOR trilogy instead. One of my favorite games (KOTOR 1).

Yes. ^^

My hype died when they demo'd the game and it was just like WoW. I was hoping for something more like Pre-CU SWG.

That was never going to happen though, they were adamant when they first started that this game would be nothing like SWG.

And I LOVED SWG. Still do, although I don't play it anymore. Not worth the money. Plenty of friends made in that game though. It's the only MMO I've ever played... mainly because I'm a Star Wars fan and not necessarily a MMO fan. For that reason alone I might really like SWTOR. I don't have any expectations though... and I think that's the best way to experience things anyway. In my experience, it's people's expectations that cause otherwise good games to "fail".

I already know I'm going to miss the city builder/house deco part of SWG in this game. That was one of the best parts of SWG... but on the other hand it's a DIFFERENT game. It's going to be different from all the others, so comparing it to those others is futile.

I'll give it a go as a Star Wars fan and I'm sure I'll have a bit of fun with it for a little while at least.

WoW will be dethroned, might not be by this game, but when someone gets their act together, there will be an MMO that dethrones WoW

it won't be that hard, either

I'm very disappointed with the gameplay they have shown of the space combat. It is all a 1 player tunnel shooter style game. You don't even really fly the ship you just move it around in a predetermined flight path... Really?...

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eab0Ys7znH4[/ame]

They need to make this the mother of all MMOs like EVE combined with WOW. I would play this all day if it was like that. Imagine fleets of ships all controlled by people. If EVE can make it work why couldn't SWTOR?

Why has the gameplay (not graphics) of all Star Wars flight sims been downhill since the old X-Wing series of the 90's?

Nothing will topple wow, to think a game will is foolish.

Blizzard games sell primarily on their name. Blizzard fans dont care about other games, they will stick to blizzard until a new blizzard game comes out.

Its hard to topple a game when fans dont plan on leaving.

This is unlike Sandbox games like Star Wars Galaxies. SWG you had player cities, player shuttle ports, player crafters, player housing, everything was ran by the players... Hell, it was even dangerous for Rebels/Imperials to visit some planets because there might be so many of the opposite faction on it! What made it fantastic is that everyone could make a name for themselves, and all the servers were different.

Some servers couldnt make certain items because the gems/ore/fruit that you needed hadn't yet spawned on a particular server.... When it did spawn people mined thoasands of it but eventually it'd be none-existant, and may not spawn again for another 6 months... That's what makes a game unique.

WoW is a laugh don't get me wrong but everyone looks the same, there's nothing unique about anyone. The best thing that can happen in the game is you kill all the heroic boss's - spending weeks/months of solid play time doing so.

I just have no idea how SWTOR is going to break the mould if it's not a sandbox...




I missed out on all that great sounding Star Wars fun, WoW might be fun for me too.

One thing I've never seen but imagined was...

Like in real life, did rival gangs ever met up to exchange something, like in real life drug deals, or information deals,

maybe video game programmers with a protection detail around them in the online game, meetup to do industrial espionage...

Like in the movies or real life...
