I am looking forward to this, if it's got the narrative hooks Bioware is known for I'm all in. And If they regularly update with quality quests, they will have a dedicated subscriber.

Exactly.
 
This is much more story driven so I'm expecting more mature players too in the end.
Woe is the day they will ask me to link my ForceScore or Midi Chlorian count to join some raid.

HA! I wouldn't count on a Star Wars game to bring in the "mature players".

Not that interested in MMO's anymore. Take so much time to really keep up with the rest. The smaller grouping is a good thing though.

Posted by carlthenimrod

For all of its faults, Star Wars Galaxies was a way more ambitious game. This game just puts me to sleep whenever I see it.

Yeah, until you get into actual end game content and realize, that just like WoW you're going to look for large numbers of players with specific gear and attribute scores. Don't be so naive. The only thing they showed off thus far was the equivalent of WoW's 5 man dungeons.

Can't wait to this, it's a shame to see everyone bashing the MMO genre and the game, I thought the GB community were better than that.

I like Star Wars and all (not a big fan, though), but George Lucas should've never allowed/introduced the doublesided lightsaber. Every time I see it, it just feels wrong.

@SnakeEyes327:  ...Which is exactly when players who care about the story with either quit, or roll a new character of a different class.

This trailer looks freaking sweet and now I want to buy KOTOR 1 and 2 for Xbox so I can play through them again.

Found the first one who isn't! xD
 
@SnakeEyes327:
 I'm not naive, if we get any sort of link achievement/gearscore crap, I'll be quitting the same day.
I know what I like in my games, and that ain't it.
WoW had a good run up until Wrath, after that I never had the same fun.
Maybe SWTOR can keep me happy for a year or two, that'd be nice!
Posted by S0ndor

If you're not going to have the original voice actor you might as well not include him. Hk-47 this is not.

Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw

Wow.  This looks good.  I'm hoping for a lot of strong story elements to keep me driven on quests and such, and that's what this looks like.

This is one MMO ass looking MMO, once I jacked Wow I'm never going back, never...looks good though. Awesome to hear HK-47 after all these years too.

Posted by sfighter21

They referred to Revan as "He".  I thought 'ol George stated that Revan was indeed female...or at least, that was canon.  I'm confused.  lol.

Posted by Deusx

So far, I could not be less impressed by this game. The only thing that makes me wonder is that it is from Bioware... and I love Bioware.

Your argument against gearscore and achievements is really only half baked. Let's say you want to join a raiding guild, or want to make a PuG to take down the Lich King over the course of say, 2 nights. You want to take people who have the gear, and who know the fights right? You want to make sure everything goes as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Playing optimally isn't and never has been a bad thing. And if you have that much trouble with raiding because you can't get into a guild on the count of your gear, than make your own. Create a guild with like minded people who don't care about achievements and Gearscore. And I'd be willing to bet that those same people that came up with GS for WoW are eyeing TOR too, and that transition is going to happen much faster in TOR than it did in WoW.

EDIT: GAAAHHHHH!  The voice is wrong!  Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!  :(

@SnakeEyes327:

It ruined my fun, and I did half the things you said, I still dislike the entire idea behind it as it will not hold in the end. 
I don't take it you're telling me what to think of stuff as I have a perfectly healthy mind and more then enough experience with WoW.
 
And if it happens to SWTOR, I'll just quit and fire up my other consoles. Problem solved.
Posted by CL60

Oh shit, does this mean Revan is still alive? And perhaps an end game boss?

Posted by lockwoodx

That combat looked sooooooo boring.

According to Canon Revan is a male.

Hands-off the KOTOR fiction, please. You'll grease it up. 

Posted by commandercup

Wow the combat looks horrific... not fluid at all.

Posted by Zol

Too bad animations in this game suck greatly because it's an MMO, also there is no physics and destructability, again because it's an MMO.
 
That's why people want KOTOR 3.

Posted by Mandaray

Awesome.

Posted by AddyMac

Another badass anti-hero reduced to being a boss in an MMO dungeon. (see also Arthas)

You thought they were better than to have negative opinions against a game you favor?  That makes no sense.
Posted by Brackynews

Nice story callback. Though there isn't much else to call back to at this point in the timeline.
But yeah, having the KOTOR events now be spoken about as legend is pretty neat.
Also, Chiss!

Posted by Spooty
@Zol:  Did you even play KOTOR? The animations were always boring and repetitive. 
 
Nice to see revan back though.

Well who else should they use for bosses?  Is it such a bad thing to recall something from the other parts of a franchise that people would love to see?  I never got far enough in WoW to raid or kill anything like Archimonde or Arthas...but I really wish I had, because that sounds awesome.  This game is going to be gold.

I think i might be buying a new PC just to play this game

HK - 47!  YAY! 

Posted by rav2002

 "Expletive: Damn it, master, I am an assassination droid... not a dictionary!" 
 
Yeah, I am officially, officially hyped for this game now.

Posted by roguehallow

Meh.  There's nothing less impressive than a lightsaber in an MMO.

Posted by giyanks22

Wow...this game looks awesome. It'll be my first MMO...sleep deprivation here I come!!!

Posted by robot21

The characters look good, but I'm not sure about that combat. I guess lightsabers never look convincing unless they are hitting other sabers or lopping of limbs with every swing.

Posted by Reverseface

I've actually played this at Gamecom, i was a bounty hunter and the combat is alot of fun very fast and responsive, as your playing it you do really feel as if your playing a single player game even tho lots of people were running around, this really is KOTOR 3 Tbh and thats not a bad thing.
It was pretty rough tho but even at this early stage it's got alot of promise and they have along time to polish the Eff outta it.

Edited by eXists

The more i look at this the more I miss them doing a "real" KOTOR 3 instead of the MMO crap, pissin me off!!!!  
 
Arguably the best RPG studio with the best RPG ever done (in my humble opinion) and they're instead doing a crappy MMO, what a waste....oh well
Posted by RE_Player1
@eXists: How do you know it's crappy? 
Posted by UncleBenny

It was cool to include some content about the previous KOTOR and some actual in game graphics, but crap, this is not a very good trailer to show off the game. I almost wish they hadn't released this trailer...

Posted by Steve_Ramirez

Voice acting is still solid. 

Posted by Besetment

What WAS Revan's final fate? I played KOTOR 1 and 2 but kind of forgot.

Posted by MrPiZzA

I feel at this point, the old republic  is KotOR 3 in spirit. although it is a MMO.  It's got to be something drastically different from the previous two games, because then EA would only tap into the old school RPG market.  That being said,  with Dragon Age out and Dragon Age 2 on the horizon, whose to say KotOR 3 is not in the works.  One can dream right?

Posted by LordXavierBritish

Meh, I was pretty excited for this but now I don't really see it doing anything that radically different from any other MMO out there. 
 
I'll wait for Guild Wars 2.

Posted by jim_dandy

I played it at PAX and...it didn't feel very good.
 
 Always three dialog trees, and they don't really seem to affect anything no matter which one you choose.
 
 World of Starwarscraft is apt in my opinion, but I only saw a small portion of the game.
 
I'll just say that playing it didn't make me want to buy it.

Posted by MajorToms

Why does Bioware suck at animation so much?
 Fighting, Lips sync and facial expressions all look baaaad.
yet they get these masters of 3D animation to make them pre-rendered trailers to make the game look stunning.. GET A GRIP Bioware. Hire some talent.
