Not a Star Wars fan but this looks kinda cool!

Edited by WWWackyson

As excited as I am for this game, I simply cannot condone people calling A New Hope "episode 4."

Posted by Hef

If this game doesn't include a full on QTE wookie musical I'm gonna be pissed.

Posted by JJOR64

I'm not the biggest fan of BioWare, but I hope this game does well for them.

Ryan, was that glitter, sweat, or did Daniel do a spit-take on you?

I hope the stuff about the Star Wars Christmas Special is in here...

Posted by fox01313

I like Bioware/Kotor but after seeing the news on i09 about Lucas wanting to effectively do a Star Wars babies show this might be the last Star Wars thing I ever consider looking at, after that sticking with SW games at/before Kotor2 & the original 3 films before the prequel films.

Lol guy has a sense of humour... least i hope he does :P

It really doesn't matter what anyone says or does.
 
I will buy this game and I will play it forever.
 
I will DIE playing this.

Posted by Brazzle

I'm so bitter that kotor 3 ended up being this mmo.
 
So very, very bitter.

Cus someone will kill you for stealing loot.

"Double-digit hours long quests" doesn't sound impressive at all. Sounds like an typical slow-ass paced MMO.

can't wait for this game

This is looking really, really slick.

I want it

No matter what they do the immersion destruction cloud that hangs over every MMO is going to shit all over whatever they try to do with storytelling.

After AGE OF CONAN why do other MMO's that have come after it have such comparatively shitty graphics?

Posted by BD_Mr_Bubbles

Graphics look somewhat blocky.

It is episode 4? It says so in the  beginning of the movie...
Posted by BraveToaster

I can't wait to try this game.

star wars is definitely going to be the next wow 
calling it right now.

One of the reasons AoC did so terribly was because of it's inaccessibility to a wide market of computer users, which is the entire point of an MMO. AoC looked really pretty on a great machine, but a lot of people playing WoW or other MMO's are not running these great machines and that is part of the draw to an MMO.

Nice to see they put in animations for when you swordfight multiple opponents.

Posted by dr_mantas

I'm sorry, I really love Bioware, I love Star Wars, especially KOTOR, but this makes me just a bit upset, a bit angry.
This cartoony graphics, unnecessarily massively online abomination of a game is NOT KOTOR III, which is what most fans of the originals wanted.
Who wants another MMO? Seriously? I would take a good single player RPG any day of the goddamn week.
Ough, allright, I calmed down.

Posted by Legend

This looks interesting. I'm not sure I like the art style, but if Bioware remains true to their original promise that this will be a Massively Multiplayer KOTOR, I'll be more than happy. STO vs. SW:TOR.. I'm really excited to see how both games compete with eachother next year.

Posted by Yotara

Can't wait! They need to make the faces of the characters resemble each other less though.

A new hope is also bullshit. 
 
When the movie came out in '77 it was just called "StarWars" not "a new hope".  
So if you want to be correct about it you should understand that "a new hope" is just as shitty as the term "episode 4"

 I know that was a joke  but name I wanna see that wookie musical number.

Its done on purpose so it can run on more machines. Mmos are only successful if a relatively large amount of people can play them. Its a big part of why wow did so well.

Man, I really like the box art on that copy of Star Wars Episode 4 A New Hope.

I am so excited for this game.

Wookie Musical QTE's sounds like the greatest thing to ever come out of a video game ever.

See I just never wanted to invest my time or money in an MMO so that's why I didn't know that, I can't even stay with free ones like  Runescape.
Posted by ahoodedfigure
@RVonE: The Brothers Hildebrandt did that one, I think
Posted by Eristocrat

If that QTE Wookie musical was real I would be sooooo sold.

Edited by Lind_L_Taylor

Still a pass for me. Don't care.  If Bioware goes the all-MMO route, I won't 
be buying or playing their games.  Just don't like this MMO + monthly pay
shit.
 
Fuck, Ryan sweats a lot. Somebody turn on a goddamn air-conditioner.

Still alpha - pre alpha. Spit and polish always comes last - get it working and Any previews of the game they do will have a bit more added to them to look semi decent then how it actually looks internally (probably a bit worse then we have seen).
BUT since it is not out till next year still (A way off yet) you will have better textures, shading and so on being worked on.
 Textures for example are way off, it takes ages to skin things and there are many iterations of these as well that are developed.  The guys will improve the engine this year as well I am sure. A year away yet so a lot will and can happen to the game. IF they start beta this year by the time it goes live it will be a very different game.
I will still say as I have before to people, go have a look at wow alpha and beta to when it came live and to today. BIG difference.
Still people are not asking in these interviews (probably told not to) in regard to graphics, raids, loot and pvp which for me are some of the key questions that need to be addressed.
Story stuff sounds great, the attention to writing detail and the scope/size of the game sounds great but this is all they say over and ver at the moment, need some other aspects of the game being talked abut.

Confirmed: Wookie musical... I can't wait. 

Posted by MeatSim

Throwing Doritos what a waste.

Posted by End_Boss

I hope they take the time they have before release to get in there and really polish those graphics. A lot of the environments and character models looked pretty basic.

Except it's fully voiced with dialogue trees and relevant choices, doesn't sound very typical to me. You won't have to read 60 paragraphs of text to understand what you're doing in this game.

Cuz graphics are not why you play an MMO.

Generalizations? 
 
Who goes into an MMO thinking 'Gee, this is really going to push the limits on graphics!' 
 
MMOs are made with not-so-good graphics to get as many people as possible playing. As someone else has stated, AoC failed due to its graphics (And other factors) preventing people from playing it. 
 
Want graphics? Crysis.
Posted by RedCricketChase
@SuperSecretAgenda:  The thing is, he didn't say "After Age of Conan, why do MMOs not push the limits on graphics?" He said "comparatively shitty graphics", and I think it's a dumb and shortsighted view to say that no one wants quality, fairly high- resolution graphics in MMOs. Hopefully you're not in the business of developing an MMO. :p

Sorry. Forgive me for believing that it's not such a good idea to put graphics on an Age of Conan level after that game...well...failed. 
 
Sure. There are exceptions to everything. You got me there. Congratulations.  
 
But I'd like to say the majority of MMO players don't care all that much about graphics.
Posted by Roger778

This looks like it will be a very fun MMO: One that I actually might consider buying because I am a die-hard Star Wars fan.  I've watched all the movies, played KOTOR1 and 2, and I even played Jedi Academy. 
 
Overall, if the game gets good reviews, I'll consider purchasing it.    

Edited by MaddProdigy

since they don't even need hype for this game they should just spend their marketing budget completely on making another sweet ass cgi trailer like that first one. just watching that was so epic.
 
EDIT: I'm guessing this is going to end up being called a "grown ups" version of wow. Not to say wow is in any way kiddy, but generally i've heard tons of people say that wow's graphics are cartoony, its easy as hell, things like that. The amount of time put into story on this sounds insane, this sounds like a more "hardcore" gamers world of warcraft. So stoked.

@Hilbert:  But it is both Episode IV and A New Hope, just because Fox wouldn't let Lucas put that on the first movie doesn't mean it's not what it is
