@AddyMac:
Some will always be more proficient than others.

Shouldn't any Jedi/Sith be proficient in the Force?

No they're stylized so it can run on more machines, like wow, the most successful pc game of all time.
And real time shadowing is one of the most performance killing things in games after polygons and physics simulation.  If you turn on real time lighting in wow (which was added in lich king) the game chugs like crazy if you've got an older pc.  Bioware may add it to the game later.

I like game, but crap I would really have liked a  KOTOR 3

In Guild  Wars they just call "companion characters" Heroes.

@Ockman: FF XI is pretty much turn-based so it is easily playable with a pad, every other MMO has a completely different style of play to FF XI, which is why a keyboard and mouse is needed.

I really hope this turns out good, i need anew MMO to get addicted to.

They've already released all the classes but Lightsaber colors aren't class specific. So I'm sure you'll be able to make/loot a yellow saber :P "
Personally, I think they should stick with the classic blue/green and red for sith.
Never liked the fact that in most Star Wars games the Jedi end up looking like skittles.
 
I guess in something like an MMO variety and customisation is always key, but they could at least make the other colours rarer and something special.  The purple blade should have been either super rare, or a collectors edition bonus, just to keep it somewhat special.  It kind of ruins the whole Mace Windu bad assness when every Jedi, Sith and their dogs are wielding them.

This game is truly a gift from the gods.

Just sounds better and better every time =)

Someone tell Bioware to put this game on consoles, or I'm not interested. And I don't wanna hear any crap about there not being a  good way to play an MMO with a controller, because I've been playing Final Fantasy XI for 7 years now on PS2 and xbox 360.

Dude, you never film an interview 'til you've already asked how to say the dude's name you're interviewing. That's how his last name is pronounced.

Guild Wars however doesn't have a montly fee. I doubt the game will be heavily instanced especially since there's a monthly fee, just key plot points. For example, a city part like in Dantooine on KoTOR you'd see other players but something more plot heavy like getting captured by Saul in KoTOR would probably be instanced.
 
It could work out just fine, but without knowing how much exactly is instanced we'll just have to wait and see. But I don't think people should be too concerned about it given the fact that monthly fees are typically used for content development and server management, no?

@Brendan: My favorite character in Star Wars is Han Solo - a smuggler. I could give a crap about Jedi Knights, to be honest; and I'm going to assume that Bioware will balance the classes to make me feel just as powerful as a Knight, in my own way. 
Posted by Ineedaname

The characters wont be rejected by parties is awesome.
Never really played an MMO I'm suddenly interested.

Edited by Brendan

Great interview, it's too bad the elephant in the room (everybody wanting to be a Jedi) had to show itself at the end when Blaine's "favourite" character was the trooper.  Suuuure, and I'm a Star Wars fan because I like doctor droids...

@PapaLazarou:

Yea because phasing fixes everything, right?

"Guild: Hey can someone help me with [Group Quest]?"
"Me: Sure!"
"Guild: Where are you?"
"Me: Oh damn, already finished that quest so I can't see you - nor the mob :("

Instancing is fine, as is phasing - they need to find the proper balance between the two and not stick to just phasing.

Instancing doesn't necessarily mean loading, just that you'll not always be with other players. Which in my opinion, is a good thing.  Making more of a single player orientated story, where you only meet up with others for key events or PVP and raiding, etc, seems like a better way to handle things.  "
WoW had great world PVP until Instancing ruined it. 
 
EQ had great seamless dungeons where guilds fought over spawns until Instancing ruined it and made everything common and just a grind. 
 
Story can be handled in the seamless world thanx to phasing.

This game will probably drain away my life force.

I CAN NOT WAIT!
 
For those complaining about instancing, from this interview it is taking place during story elements and it seems you can control whether or not you go in by yourself or with a party. I wouldn't want my story progression and enjoyment disrupted because it requires me to do something that is gone or not available because someone else is doing it. Especially when the story is going to be good and mean so much in this game.
 
Seems like they are on the right path. Really hoping for some race options soon though, we've really only seen humans I believe.

Posted by Milkman

What the hell was going on in the beginning there?...
 
 Anyway, this game seems fantastic. Can't wait.

Is it just me or is Ryan really packing on the lbs???

Posted by Myomoto

Woah, Rogue Warrior QL flashback in the start there..

Posted by NathHaw

My whole morning was pretty much checking the forums on the official site for all the links to all the places that have released this info today.  My verdict is that the game is starting to excite me, but since WoW, I'm sceptical of all other MMOs.

Posted by AuthenticM

I think I'm the only one with zero interest in this game.

Great interview!

Posted by Driadon

Man, that sounds really really cool. Now, I'm usually not much for large amounts of instancing, specifically with large gind-heavy areas (see Guild Wars), but when it's too actually give a narrative in an MMO (Much less a Bioware one(SQWEE!)) then that is a different story.

Posted by PenguinDust

There are 8 classes total now, 4 for each faction.  Trooper, Smuggler, Knight, and Consular  for the Jedi and Bounty Hunter, Agent, Warrior and Inquisitor for the Sith.  Now, I wonder though when we'll get some information on what races are going to be playable.
