I need my munday fix before I go to work.

Posted by TheChaos

I didn't get into any betas for this. 
I took it as a sign that the game will not be good.

Posted by weegieanawrench

I'm not really one for MMO's, but if I were ever to play this game, a Bounty Hunter class sounds like it's right up my alley.

want......to try before buy

Posted by WinterSnowblind

As much as I love Bioware, I'm really not impressed by anything we've seen of this game.  The gameplay looks incredibly standard for an MMO and the expanded story/character/single player content are being done better in other MMO's and just makes me wish this was a KotOR III instead. 

Posted by Bones8677

Just tell me when it's out Bioware.

Come on! I was really hoping for a release date or winter 2011 or something :(

I'm a broken record, but I just wish it was KOTOR III full stop, not KOTOR 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, etc... 
I'm going to try the beta to get a feel for it, if it sucks then obviously I ain't touching this, not even with a ten foot barge pole.

If the Bounter Hunter is that awesome, why would you pick another class?

Posted by jozzy

Hmm, this is actually the first trailer that looked semi interesting to me. But I am still firmly in a wait and see position on this one.

Posted by iyaoyas615

This was going to be my first MMO but I don't know anymore...

@Agent47:  I guess you will find out in their next class reveal trailer...

This will be one of the most monumental failures in the history of gaming. 100 million+ spent and all they've come up with is a WOW clone. 

Posted by TheMustacheHero

This just keeps looking worse and worse.

Can you kill younglings?

Posted by Xpgamer7

I know what class I'm choosing.

Posted by JoelTGM

I dunno, why does it have such janky animations?  Is that just something MMOs will never be rid of?

Posted by cannedstingray

I'm not an MMO guy at all, but to me it looks alright, and they are saying it will have the "dynamic?" or at least unique storylines, I dunno, I don't get all the hate..  It loooks like it will play more or less like a 3rd person action game, with BIOWARE style story beats..   If that's correct it could be good (I think).
 
could someone who is up on MMO's tell me why this won't be as good as I'm being led to believe??

LONG READ
 
 
I'm really finding a hard time understanding all this negative feedback for this game. It's not the next messiah, to be sure, but it also doesn't look to be anywhere near crap either. The graphic style certainly hasn't hurt the genre in general, with many MMO games having varying degrees of comicstyle graphics (Yes even games like EQ are very cartoony.). And beyond the bright colors, the proportions are still realistic, the movement still seems plausible for a Sci-Fi game and the worlds are very well rendered. I can't complain too much about the style of this game.  
 
Conversely the graphics have steadily been improving in quality throughout development. Compared to early release screens and footage, this is drastically better. The game sounds traditionally Star Wars, which few people ever find beef with, as well as adding in some of the unique nature KoTOR had in the audio department.  
 
Stack that with the feel of Story this game will be putting into the genre. MMO's are nothing evil or destructive to gaming, and one of there few flaws is Long term story. I think this game will finally achieve a real sense of immersiveness with it's story and show us something quite special. Full voice work for every npc, reportedly, and full interactive choices rather than just accept and decline are real improvements.  
 
 
Now think of Bioware. They are an amazing company, with only a few real flops. Also they have experience with the Star Wars franchise AND actually created it's own sub-universe in it. Sure they are new to MMO games, but other than that I just don't see all the negativity. 
 
The only thing so far that makes me slightly disappointed is the animation, which could be better. But that's an issue with all MMO's, and any progress so far is great progress. I still haven't pre-ordered, and I'll wait. But it certainly doesn't deserve a lot of crap right now. 
 
My 2 cents.

I'm going to wait for the inevitable Mass Effect MMO

Posted by thorkildsen

looks like crap.
Posted by Tordah

Sigh. I wish they made KOTOR 3 instead.

Posted by makkuwata

I am super annoyed that I'm going to have to buy this game.

Edited by MaddProdigy

I hope I have enough time to put into this. I really, really want to see all of the story stuff and different planets. 
 
But as far as the success of the game, I'm doubtful. WOW is a fucking juggernaut at this point. The problem with entering the MMO space is that there are always huge bugs and balance issues that take serious time to work out. WOW has had years upon years to build and build upon it's content, perfecting it's formula. 
 
If anyone can do it, it's Bioware, and I hope only the best for the people that brought me Mass Effect and KOTOR. But damn, the investment EA is making has got to be tremendous.

Posted by Christwood

This game looks so disappointing. Who would have though that Bioware can't deliver. But I guess it doesn't really matter. Guild Wars 2 will be dominating the mmo market by the year 2012 anyway.

Yep. WoW has 8 entire storylines for each class. Full dialog with 40 novels worth of speech. Companion characters with dialog, and story quests. Your own starship. Space Combat. A light/dark side meter. Choices that effect the way your character progresses. Multiple endings in instances. Giving the players the choice of who controls planets and areas. Giving the players the ability to effect the war effort. World an Galaxy wide story lines. 
 
Yep, total WoW clone.
Posted by Dan64

Looks like good fun. I'll probably pick it up and play with a few friends.  
 
I'm only interested in this because of the BioWare tag associated with it, however, if this came from the guys who made Rift I probably wouldn't give it a second glance.

Posted by SuperSambo

The graphics and animation look terrible! KOTOR looks better...

This.
 
I played Guild Wars back when it first came out, but not seriously in the slightest. Think ill just go to Guild Wars 2 now.
Posted by Jayzilla

IDK> I was really excited about this until more info about Guild Wars 2 came out. I think open world+free after cost of box= I will be playing Guild Wars 2.

Looks so bad... i feel so sad

1.) Guild Wars 2 is in no way competition for SW:TOR.  It might be better, but it isn't going for the same level of profits as subscriber-based MMOs.  SW:TOR is interesting in competing against other subscription-based MMOs, not free ones. They are after the WoW money.    
 
2.) SW:TOR doesn't need to beat WoW to be profitable.  Not by a long shot.  In interviews the developers have said they would be profitable at 1 million subscriptions sold and a success at 2 million.  That's all.  It doesn't need 11 million players, tons of Chinese spammers, and years of loyal fanbase.  It only needs 1 million subscribers to be profitable.

Ok so it has a story... but will the gameplay be any good, I actually wish it was a wow clone with star wars, there's no point being mad when someone says that a game is a clone of one of the best mmos of all time.

while WoW is popular I wouldn't call it the best MMO of all time

"Full dialog with 40 novels worth of speech." 
 
I know it's super high quality, because I'm getting 40 novels for my $60.  I also know that it'll drag on fucking forever because it's fully voiced.  How can I possibly lose!?

I'm almost sure I want this game.

Seriously, this game is probably the only MMO that has a chance of comparing to WoW. If the story is as good as they say / we hope it is and the combat is at least decent if not revolutionary [already got the cover system + more tactical LoS than WoW in my book] then it's gunna be LEGEN........... DARY! :P

Posted by WASDF

The logic of these comments just makes no sense. This was a class trailer that barely  showed any gameplay. I believe that that is indeed not a good thing. But how on earth you deduce that the game is awful, disappointing, shit or any other negative OR positive opinion about the game it's self is beyond me.
 
And to think I considered Giantbomb's users a little more mature and logical of the other videogame communities...
