Posted by sora_thekey

I don't get it if it's waaaay before Yoda then why are there Clone Troopers? Aren't they Jango Fett's clones? that's like waaaaay after Yoda...
Somebody please dis-confuse me!

All this trailer tells me is that Jedi will be OP =]

Too bad Old Republic is NOT Mac compatible...yet.  :(

I was all set to be genuinely interested in this, I hate Star Wars but this looked like a really good MMO to get me away from WoW for a couple of months. 
 
Then the Warhammer 40k Online Trailer happened. Blew any notion that I would be giving this game any thought completely out of the water. I will be playing W40K Online, and if it gets enough endgame support and has decent character/class/faction balancing, may not even go back to WoW if it manages to keep me long enough. 
 
Cannot wait for it, completely zero interest in this now.

Badass!!!! 
I'd but the game just if they had a Cut scene theatre mode or something... !!!!

Hell, that trailer's better than the last three movies. :/
 
But it's just a trailer, and tells us nothing about the actual game. Except that it's designers can make a good trailer.

I realise that didn't really say anything about the gameplay, but it was still a sweet trailer. Makes me want a movie based on those events really lol :)

Posted by Braqoon

I do like it. Proper SW if you ask me. Maybe there will be some cgi movie out of this like dead space ?

Lol at the guy who just jogs up and throws that dude a gun.

WHOA AMAZING! 
 
This is better than all the action scenes from every Star Wars movie combined! 
 
To everyone hating on the game, you have no idea what you are talking about so please.. keep your negative comments to yourself.

@SHADOWINFINITE:  This takes place 3000 years before the movies. Yes, those aren't clone troopers. No, none of them can look or sound familiar. This is an MMO, a completely, utterly different game than Force Unleashed 2, you cannot even compare the two slightly. Today has no star wars films...and the Jedi and Sith never go extinct. So uh...don't have thoughts, ever. Do some research, or just read more comments like I did

The power demonstrated in the movies was limited by the writing necessary for a blockbuster movie, as well as the technology of the time.

Can't have Darth Vader tearing star ships out of the sky, too many questions come up like "why doesn't he just crush Luke with the force". So no, it's not stupid, it's awesome. What, so these feared lightsaber wielding people with super powers can only mind trick and push lightsabers out of other peoples hands? I much prefer imagining epic battles like the one depicted here. No, it's not stupid to show how a fight between these factions would actually go down. Would you prefer a trailer, or even a game, like the fight between Obi Wan and darth vader? "

While I'm all for the epicness of this CG video (I'd hardly call it a trailer for it relates to the actual game only by its setting and story hooks), I never liked this disconnect between the old movies and most of the material that came after it. That said, I did like the depiction of Jedi and Sith powers in KOTOR I & II because they feel more in line with the old movies; my guess is that The Old Republic as an actual game will resemble that also.

lol uh dude. graphically, it is 100 percent totally impossible to have a game that looked and played like this, i can guarantee you. even with bill gates whole fortune and all the best of the top studios, it's just impossible with the tech we have. you cannot even begin to compare freakin GT5 to just the first frame of this trailer, let alone the whole thing. GT5 has to show you cars, and a track. have you looked at the stands, people, tracks, or anything except the cars in GT5? Now look at this. now back at gt5. now watch this again. ehhhh...

Different game.... but this trailer is what Star War Battlefront should have been like.

Trailer was cool for the sole purpose of visual entertainment.  However, it shows nothing about the game other than what the enemies and  protagonists will be.  I know its meant to build hype, but it seems unrealistic even from the fiction point of view.  Since when could any normal soldier beat a jedi/sith in hand-to-hand combat? sith have the force and a lightsaber and can't even fend off a normal unarmed (except for easily blockable guns)?  Only the main enemy showed any of what power a sith would have.

No I understand that you won't be able to do any of the things presented in that trailer. I understand it is just a kick ass trailer for a Star Wars property. Who honestly thinks thats how the game will look and play?
Edited by Roger778

Bioware, I love you guys! You are the most amazing RPG Developers, and yet at the same time, you also know how to make great trailers.  That trailer was one of the best CGI Trailers I have ever seen. The only thing that worries me about this new MMO, despite it being a Star Wars game, is that it might get boring, to play, despite the fact that everything I've read sounds intriguing      

Please, Bioware, I'm begging you! Make a Star Wars Movie, not an MMO, or at the least make a KOTOR 3.  You obviously have a eye for cinematic games, so why not translate that into movies!.

Those 5 minutes and 41 seconds were better than the entire prequal trilogy! Trailer or not, that was a damn fine piece of CGI entertainment!

@JCGamer:
yeah, these graphics would be cool in an MMO, at least until your computer (trying to render an entire universe full of these graphics) crashed as a result.  
Maybe you personally have a really souped up computer, but most people out in their target market only have decent computers to work with.

The trailer looked great, but it would have been nice to see some actual gameplay

Posted by dprabon

OH OH OH OH OH OH YEAH! 
I hate MMO's but this I'll buy! 
I love BioWare!

The first trailer was better.
Posted by obiwan

Best trailer of E3

Posted by JuggaloAcidman

The more I see about this game... The less excited I get. Everyone is going to either be a Jedi or a Sith and I'll be 1 of 5 smugglers in the entire game and everyone will bug the crap out of me to heal all the time... It was a mistake to make the Jedi and Sith both tanks and dps... Everyone will play them and nothing else!

Awesome

Edited by nmarchan

No seriously, art design problems aside, if these guys made a movie I would buy it IMMEDIATELY.    
 
Kind of sad that the actual combat looks EXACTLY LIKE EVERY OTHER MMO.  You stand there in the open and shoot at the other guy for two minutes until somebody's HP go away.  Nothing inherently wrong with that, but the trailers promise things the game isn't going to come close to delivering.  

Posted by Nephrahim

I really wish they would stop making it look like Movie era Star wars.  In the first two Kotor games, the soldiers didn't look nearly as much like Clone Troopers. 
 
Looked pretty cool though.

Posted by skimbatcha

sadly i doubt the actual combat will match the fighting i just seen in that trailer... some day maybe

The narrators voice sounds familiar, anybody know who he is?

As usual, thousands of years of technological progress seem to not exist in the Star Wars universe.  Right.

Of course, but you're talking variations between decades. This is thousands of years! Despite cyclical appearances, one would imagine that over the span of thousands of years, differences in those cyclical appearances would add up over time to produce something wholly different.  
 
Again, I'm just being absurd and pointing out something that, ultimately, doesn't really matter.

I could watch this trailer all day

Ah, so this is what this game won't be like.

Why such a cool trailer for a game that will be nothing like it? To bad...
Posted by Echani

I have learned much about this game based on the trailer.
 
Ain't got shit on Lincoln Force.

Posted by Ubiquitous

Wow, epic trailer. The gameplay footage released so far hasn't wowed me at all (except for the prospect of coop dialougue.) 
 
But DAMN thats a good trailer. Doesn't make me feel any better about the game, but it definitely hyped me up for more info on the title. I have hope, to say the least.

Agreed.  I see what Jeff means when he said the game will never be as good as the videos make it seem.

If it just has the spaceship sound effects that are that good, I'll buy it.

Pure awesome!

HADOUKEN!!

Posted by SHADOWINFINITE

That was Awesome. Those Clone Troopers looked cool, however I guess they aren't clones. Since Jango Fett is just a kid or not even born. However, that soldier trooper without the helmet his voice sounds familiar. I don't remember. This looks like it is going to be as good as Force Unleashed 2. From looking at today's star wars films. The Jedi's and Sith's are almost an extinct.
