Has SWTOR hype died down? - Page 6

I definitely dont want to get a star wars debate going, the battle between which "series" is better will rage until eternity, that being said I prefer the prequels. I find the idea of a fully functioning Jedi Order much more entertaining than a single whiny teenager with 45 minutes of training calling himself a Jedi, the whole idea that he could begin to call himself one is absurd, Jedi/Sith masters were trained from a young age to hone their skills, Luke just took a weekend retreat at camp Degobah and sat around the campfire with camp councilor Yoda. I find the storyline of the clone wars era and TOR more entertaining, even so I grew up watching the original series on VHS and I will always enjoy them (in between top gun and days of thunder which were huge in my house).

I enjoy the Old Republic story lines as well, though their cannon is a toss up, Lucas just likes to see what will stick but the Darth Bane books were pretty awesome.

Me personally as far as enjoyment goes

Clone Wars era - I have read pretty much every book
Old Republic era - Read all the Bane books, not sure if there are anymore in that timeline
Original series timeline - I tried to read up on the EU but couldn't get into it

I think some of my dislike for the originals could stem from my hatred of 70's-80's haircuts and bad acting, they remind me of my childhood. Plus Anakin is my hero, even have permission from my wife to name my next son Anakin, though I havent decided if I am going to do that to him.

As much as I disliked the prequels, I really liked KotoR...and I have faith in Bioware. They will produce something at least interesting and unique to the whole MMO thing. Whether I need to play another MMO is a different story..-.-

I need something "else" in the mmo industry. Kind of like EvE, which I play. What I mean, is that I want something that draws me in, due to outside the box thinking. The only mmo coming up that looks like that, which is also being done by CCP, is World of Darkness. Really hoping to get more info on that one soon.
In progress.

for those that do not know.

Bioware is dead. When they got bought out by EA, EA opened new studios, hired alot of new people for those studios, and merged mythic with bioware to form the rpg studios.

Who and what bioware was is no longer what they are. They are no longer in charge of their vision, they do what EA tells them to. Do any of you trust EA to let bioware do what they want? I dont, i know EA just wants money, which is why they keep cutting content from the game and trying to sell it on the side. ME1&2 Dragon age 1&2.

Go look at the credits of dragon age and mass effect games, and compare them to other bioware releases. Not many similar names.

I think Mass Effect and Dragon Age are great games though, even without any DLC whatsoever.

I dont really see much information about it but just general information.

And for those talking about the cartoony graphics, they need to look at the current screenshots and videos. Looking at two year old screen shots is not a good way to judge a game by it's graphics.

Ya sorry guys I still think that Bioware is a good company. Mass Effect rocked. Sure they will do good on this aswell.
