I'm burnt out on mmo's at the moment.

so she's the thief and the ranger

Devious cartoon lady is devious.

After millions of dollars in development, this TOR thing still doesn't seem to gel. Super dramatic music behind WoW-stylized toons zapping each other, animating at 10 frames a second? Not feeling it, duders.

She shot a Jedi in the face!

Looks like an MMORPG

Posted by LordCmdrStryker

This will probably be the last class I play. Looks cool, though. I almost feel bad for the guy she shoots at the end.

Posted by DarkbeatDK

I really like that helmet she got on in the end there.

MMO combat and MMO character animations.

So bad, yet it will attract so many.

Red explosive barrels confirmed.

I always feel confused at star wars droids, they're so lame, you'd think that with all their programming and machine level precision and accuracy that they'd hit their target first time every time.

Also a droid that screams in pain and makes jokes is kind of dumb too.

Don't get me wrong I really like star wars and I realise that a game has to have enemies that can be defeated but I think the above thoughts everytime I see C3PO cower and run from battle.

Uh, Star Wars was invented before the personal computer?

Looks really clunky.

My God, f2p asian mmo's that are developed in a week have better animations than this. Quite obvious EA gonna kill another classic world perfect for mmo's, as they did with Warhammer Online...

Posted by OllyOxenFree

Yeah. Nah.

Posted by Chubbaluphigous

Every time that I see this game I am first like, "OMG this game is going to be awesome, I can't wait for it to come out." But then I see it and I am like, "This looks terrible, I don't want to play this."

It showed terribly at PAX. Bad enough that I was surprised that would show it as openly as they did.

Posted by Mdk5631

Star Trek Online has ground combat controls that play like a third person shooter,

it is alot of fun (unlike alot of other parts of that game)

Why cant Star Wars have that?

(with EA/Biowares 200 million dollar budget none the less)

Posted by CJduke

I can't decide if I want to get this game on launch or not. Or even play it at all. I feel compelled to because it is Star Wars and Bioware, but I also don't want to spend $15 a month and waste my time on it when there are so many other good games.

Posted by Foggen

Nice assassin class. I like how the second to last version looks just like Nova.

Posted by scraz

Terrible animation.Gameplay looks like something from 2006.Ill jump back into mmo,s with planetside 2 but they can keep this shit.Hopefully when/if this turd fails riccitiello gets the boot so bioware can get back to doing what they do best.

I agree. This doesn't look good. It's strange that Bioware uses this to lure in players, it looks like texture polished Knights of the Old Republic.

Posted by CoolYetiDance

I'm so hyped for this week on gb!

Guild Wars 2.

Edited by Floppypants

This game looks more like "The Sims: Star Wars" than a $300+ million MMO.

Edited by eXists

What a terrible mistake this whole MMO thing is, KOTOR 3 was a guaranteed success! Instead we have this crap, what were they thinking?!

Bioware is slowly becoming a mini-EA-sales-first organization with dumbing down Mass Effect to a shooter, Dragon Age to cut & paste and missing out on a kick ass RPG like KOTOR, what's next?!

Looks to me that the Doctors better keep their Doctor degrees updated just in case...

Posted by CornishRocker

$15 a month for this? Everything looks like WoW with lightsabers. No thanks, EA.

Posted by PhantomGardener

This game just looks worse and worse for each time I see it..

Posted by Veektarius

Really not impressed with the presentation.

Posted by G0rd0nFr33m4n

Looks ok, but not $15 a month ok.... I'll wait till it's F2P in a year or so after release.

Edited by CL60

Without reading the comments. Let me guess.

People exaggerating about the graphics/animation. People just screaming GUILD WARS 2 IS AMAZING!! and people that think this sucks simply because they don't like MMOs in the first place and are crying because there's no KOTOR 3?

Posted by WinterSnowblind

@CL60: All of which seem like valid complaints. I don't think that just because it's an MMO the gameplay, graphics and animations need to be horribly dated and basic. It's not an excuse, and other games are proving that.

It's not continuing the story most people wanted, and that's not going to change, no matter how many times the developers insist this is "KotOR 3, 4, 5 and 5 rolled into one!".

The animations and graphics really are nowhere near as bad as you are all claiming >.> I've played the game extensively and the animations are on-par/better than WoWs, which really do have some of the best animations of an MMO(At least ones that look smooth and blend nicely.), and the graphics really aren't bad at all when maxed out.

I really fail to see how this game looks terrible graphically.

And that's not maxed out since they're from the beta, and the beta doesn't have the ability to max the game out. At least they weren't when those pictures were taken. Unsure on now.

Also the stupid claims of "Derp this is just WoW with lightsabers." The game is literally nothing like WoW at all except they share similar combat systems.

Look at those graphics and tell me what year it is?

2005ish? If that.

Edited by DharmaBum

Something about the pace of the music that doesn't fit the awkward stand-still combat.

Posted by TruthOasis

I really want to be excited for this game, but this game just lets me down every time I see it. A trailer is supposed to show the moments of highest intensity and action but I could fall asleep to this. It always pains me to think they scrapped KOTOR 3 for this.

Edited by wisdumcube

Look at all that slow, stilted animation. It really fits the tense atmosphere that the music is trying to convey.

I am at the edge of my seat!

That sniper lady looks kind of like a skinny Halo guy wearing a cute little hat. Day one purchase.

Reminder that WoW was released in 2004, and if you think this is on the same graphical quality as WoW then I don't know what to say to you.

That finally Sniper helmet looked just like Cobra Commander's. "COOBRAAA!!"

Agreed

Edited by CptBedlam

It sounds like SW but it doesn't look like SW at all.

I'd probably be interested if they didn't make it all cute and cartoony. I blame Blizzard and WoW and I'm sick of that kind of art style.

Praise The Sun! Dark Souls is here to save us from those Happiness-in-your-face-art styles.

Posted by freakin9

That Imperial Agent is OP against Jedi. Nerf!

I don't really get what Bioware is trying to convey, those early trailers actually looked kinda cool, but this is some ugly stuff.

Posted by bunnymud

These trailers really do make the game look like shit.

I want to believe

What are you even talking about? How does the personal computer have anything to do with this conversation?

Read some old science fiction novels and short stories. Artificial intelligence was a common topic in science fiction for at least a few decades before Star Wars came out. George Lucas not personally owning a computer should have nothing to do with whether his robots and androids are laughably incompetent.

I'm personally fine with Star Wars' whimsical setting with its incompetent droids, but TorMasturba has a fair position too, and your rebuttal was a complete non sequitur.

MMO gameplay trailers, lovely things comprised almost entirely of standing still hitting numbered keys every few seconds, with tons of extra camera shots and whizz bang effects in the mix to make you forget.

Posted by thenexus

@Vortextk: This and some of the other MMO's coming out are a lot less turn by turn, they have more dynamic elements now everyone has sussed the server to computer stuff. So yeah there will always be an element of this for these games by their nature but watch some youtube videos of PVP etc. Your very active.

Posted by Vortextk
@thenexus: Not to say it won't be or isn't somewhat active, these trailers are just always a joke. MMO trailers are kind of terrible. CG nothingness, or watching a dude press hotkeys without a UI on screen with fancy camera angles. Looking at the skills and progression is nice because ultimately that's what will matter, so that was cool atleast. The character stuff. Actual combat of course is just a slightly evolved thing everyone knows all too well.
 
They have a lot of work to do to make sure every class seems kick ass so you don't have 80% jedis. That class seems to fulfill that goal.
