I love that this game exists.

Yeah, no. They have a lot to prove with this one and I'm extremely not sold on that design.
I also see literally no reason to trust Valve with this. Yeah, they're a good developer with great business sense, but we all know how much experience they have with hardware, right? My trustometer for this project is starting at absolute zero.
I guess we use "military shooter" to mean different things. When you say military, I think Call of Duty, I think Medal of Honor and Battlefield. I do not think Halo or Gears of War or Warhammer 40k. I also don't think there's anything particularly casual about either Modern Warfare or Jedi Knight, so since I have no idea what that part of your post referred to, either, I guess we have pretty much no common semantic ground and it would probably be best to drop the subject entirely.
Because simply being a Star Wars game disqualifies it from being a military shooter and thus makes it about 50 times more inspiring than any multiplayer shooter that's come out in the past half decade or so?
Won't be the same without you, Dave, but you're leaving a worthy legacy behind. In more ways than one. Stay hardcore, duder.
Hrm... Well this seems like a mistake... I obviously know nothing about the development, but I would think 1313 would have sold like hotcakes. Especially if they got it out in time for the next generation launch. It barely even matters if it's a good game if it looks like that and comes out in time for a console launch, no one would care if it turned out to be tomorrow's Perfect Dark Zero, it would have sold just based on how many people are freaking out about the graphics alone and how hungry people always are for new games around a system launch. Peculiar...
And so it's gone, before I even had a chance to enjoy it. I had such grand plans for this franchise... I was living with two friends when the first game was revealed. Already being Guitar Hero fans, we'd already started making plans for who should be on what instrument and how the heck we're supposed to split the cost of a game into three to justify buying it at that time. Such plans we had for that game...
And then it took about another year to come out in Europe. We'd all moved apart by then. But it was okay, things are bound to change, I thought, and this series doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I'll just play some more Guitar Hero 3.
Alas, we're at the end of a game generation now and my life is still in a place where I don't have the social network nor the financial stability to feel good about buying into a game like this. RB3 is especially tantalizing, to a hobby keyboardist... Oh well, maybe the franchise will come back one day in the future. Or I'll find someone who already owns a wardrobe full of plastic instruments that we can play with. Or the world will forget about the plastic instrument craze forever more and I'll pretend I never wanted to try it. I guess time will tell.
Man... Games that require other people are the best thing in the world, until they become the worst thing in the world.
