wow, i'm a prick. i already have this quest. 
 
saw this on GT..seems to have an audio sync issue there. still don't know what to make of this game...comes across as something that doesn't need to be an MMO

I'm pumped for this.

I am totally back on-board after seeing this.

For an MMO the animations are pretty good.

half expected 'plays best on Alienware' at the end.

This game kind of looks like ass put next to focused single player games like mass effect/2. Both 
scifi 3rd person space rpg games by bioware.

That is not Yoda!

Is that Yoda character voiced by Jim Cummings? OMG!!!!!!

Because it allows them to get more people with less than stellar computers to buy, play, and subscribe to the game. 
Works for WoW!

Is it just me or at :59 when it shows the guy talking, does it not look sort of like a Team Fortress 2 animation style? 

Posted by AxleBro
that's not yoda right? its just another one of... whatever species he is, right?
Posted by XFastfireX

Looks great. Still would rather have KOTOR 3, but I'll definitely take this.

Posted by Zabant
@Driadon: Considering the 360 hardware is coming up to 6 years old and mass effect looks amazing on that, i have to argue anyone with that shitty of a pc would be to poor or unwilling to spend money on games to play a monthly fee anyway.

So this game still looks like crap, that´s too bad.

I sure hope not. I won't stand for a forwards-talking Yoda!

No it doesn't. It looks awesome.
Posted by Mattyboysmith

It looks pretty interesting, I'm still undecided on playing a bounty hunter or a Sith. Hmm maybe i will even be a jedi.

Pretty excited!

This game is going to be a major financial disaster for EA.

terrible yoda!

Posted by eulogize_my_baked_goods

 I just don't get it. No matter how hard they pitch this SW themed MMO it just looks so flat against everything else Bioware does.
 
Granted, I still hope it does well for them. Just so it can help fund the Bioware games I really want to be playing (ie, their great singleplayer RPG's). However, I highly doubt I'll ever subscribe to it myself.

The character animations look quite horrible. WoW was doing it better back in its beta so many years ago now. Hopefully they improve a number of them before release.

You'd think that, but it's surprising how little most people know about computers. When they buy them for studying or work purposes, or even just to check their e-mails and browse the web, they'll buy something cheap and nice looking and portable, (or something that's on sale) usually a light, small, cheap laptop that doesn't have a proper graphics card. Even a new one like that would struggle to hold any kind of framerate on a game like ME2, if not fail to launch it altogether. Still, those same people might wanna check out this "WoW" thing (or did a couple of years back when it was the hot shit). Which is the kind of consumer SWTOR seems to be targeting, sadly.
Posted by Charlee_CoCo
@Zabant:  Nobody would be able to play/run an MMO that looks like a top notch 360 game and animates well too. Games like ME2 can look great on the 360/PS3 because they don't have 100 people over 100 different internet connections playing together on a single server.

@eulogize_my_baked_goods:  Here's an idea, if you wanna support Bioware then why not buy the game?  If you don't like then you don't have to pay the montly subscription. 
 
Personally i can't wait to play but damn that ending was anti-climatic.  It was like "This place is gonna blow!  Let's casually run away from the explosion!"

Might be master Vandar from KOTOR, but I believe he should be dead by now. Probably just another one of the species. Because you know, the jedi order would fall apart if it weren't lead by tiny dyslexic green dudes.
Posted by Safe_Bet

Sound like Yoda, that did not. :/ 
 
Also.. The "darkness will ovetake... sun will burn black..." stuff is overdone, out of place, and juvenile sounding considering the Sith are not "evil". They simply believe in a different philosophy than the Jedi.

i'd still need to see a quick look of the game being played before i get fully on board

So did Yoda have a speech impediment, and others of his species speak without the Object Subject Verb word order?
Posted by Cuuniyevo

That is most definitely not Master Vandar, and the idea that it would be Yoda is ludicrous. Vandar died (even if he hadn't, his skin color and voice actor were different), and Yoda wasn't born for another couple thousand years.
 
I'm still not sure about TOR; I'd like to play it and all, but if I bought a subscription, it'd dominate at least a year of my life, I'm sure, and I don't think I can commit to that. :/

Posted by Rockanomics

Looks like they are continuing to make as much of their MMO a non-MMO experience as possible, which might be okay.

This right here.  I WANT to like SWTOR, but I also wanted to like Star Trek Online.  We all saw how well THAT went.  As it stands I'll only play STO if it goes Free 2 Play.  The same might become of SWTOR for me as well if it stays like this. :\

That is a concern I have. KotOR managed to be fairly mature in it's topics despite its T rating, talking about the sith and jedi in more than just black and white, but this is a mass market MMO and I fear they well make it for kids. I just hope they can cater to us who loved KotOR in our teens and are now in our twenties.

Who's the voice (actor) at 1:12? It's sounds oddly familiar...

Probably because it wasn't Yoda... 
Posted by ObsideonDarman

Yep... this is definitely an MMO.

Posted by Rattle618
@CL60: This looks butt ugly, unless you are comparing it to games that are 7+ years old, even the new MMOs look way better than this nowadays.

No it doesn't. I love the look of it.
Posted by MichaelBach

I'm surprised with all the hate here, I think it looks promising for an MMO.

I disagree, I really don't think it does...
Posted by thorkildsen

this will fail !
Posted by Safe_Bet

I always assumed the way which Yoda talked was particular to his race, not a personal speech impediment. :/

Posted by Clinkz

I think this game will be one of the biggest flops in history.
