So I get my invite yesterday to swtor exactly 1 year 3 months after I signed up. Odd timing to offer the beta and It just seemed ludcris to even ponder taking any time away from absolute glory to partake in what looks to be more of the same only maybe with a wookie. I have had Skyrim for exactly 12 hours at this point and the only words I have are ... I am literally rendered speechless from time to time in my playthrough. This is what Elder Scrolls is supposed to feel like. From the incredible in depth character creation (this time all races look cool) to...well everything else beyond that :D. I got out of the intro scene and after parting with my companion and saw some buck out in the woods and decided to go hunting, found a hunter camp, robbed it, got caught by the returning party, killed them, looted them, and then finally found a hilltop and took a picture of the sunset. This is RPG brilliance at its absolute finest. This year has bestowed upon us gamers with 3 fantastic worlds to explore. From Witcher 2 onward to Dark Souls and now finally the pinnacle of them all SKYRIM!!! THANK YOU BETHESDA!!!
EA sends me a SWTOR invite BAH!!!
This might be like what Blizzard did with the Wrath of the Lich King beta. Near the release date, they let a lot of people into the beta. I can only imagine it was a stress test because everything was shit. Whole new degrees of multi-minute lag. Oh, the wailing of the entitled beta folk who viewed all the new invitees as interlopers. I'd say, if you haven't already decided on a Star Wars purchase, try it out. Otherwise, why waste vaulable Skyrim playtime.
Ya I'm in the same boat, but since TOR is being a bitch and every time I have to reopen the downloader it magically pops in some new 10+ GB to download I doubt I will get to play it this weekend. I played the alpha several months back so it's not that big a deal, but I do want to fire it up at some point and see how it handles on my system since I upgraded my video card and the game has hopefully been optimized some since early alpha.
