There hasn't been an MMO to keep my attention enough to justify devoting at least a hundred hours.

I'm enjoying these interviews that have been going on the site. Good stuff.

Also, I don't understand any of the words coming out of that mans mouth.

Oddly, I'm enjoying all this coverage of a game I'm not playing.

Must be awkward ripping a game a new one on the Bombcast then sitting down with one of its creators the day after to talk about the game.

What was Jeff Mumbling and gesturing about in the beginning there when the dude is talking to Ryan?

edit: At first I was agreeing with you, but I stand corrected. It was a pretty good interview, the dev had a great personality, and there was very little spin. +respect for the GB crew.

@Buzzkill: Are they having an awful launch? I picked a standard load server and have had occasional CTDs but no queueing or serious bugs.

Is there a quick look of this coming up? I remember Jeff talking about streaming some gameplay but I think that fell through.

My guess is he needed his car moved while he was doing the interview so he passed his keys to someone off camera to the left.
 
edit: When the guy said For The Win, Jeff looked like he was in physical pain for a second there.

War worse then before. Settle the score from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

The question is was that meant to be a handshake at the end or just a hand motion?

Thats what I was thinking. I just finished listening to the Bombcast where they spend a pretty long time saying they're pretty much disappointed with the game. Not that it's a bad game but they just feel like it's more of the same. Then they're kinda tip toeing around the issue in the interview and cherry picking these things they kinda like about it..

@DaBuddaDa: Was just thinking that. No talk about actual gameplay mechanics and server issues, people being at lvl50 even now and not having anything to do did not surprise me.

I have to say this interview piqued my interest. Going to give the game a couple months to settle in, might check it out then.

For them it very well could be and that is understandable as they have grown tired of traditional MMO mechanics, combat etc. For me, and hopefully many others, I have never felt so invested in my MMO character before. I played Warcraft and Warhammer and enjoyed them but I couldn't tell you a lick of the story. For the Old Republic I am reading and listening to every piece of dialogue and am engaged to the point where I am looking forward to the next quest and looking forward to playing all the other classes, something I would never do in other MMOs. As for the combat and mechanics I enjoy it but I can see how someone who had played years of World of Warcraft would be tired of it.

The story stuff seems really interesting. Too bad about that MMO stuff. I wonder if I could just play through a few of the careers and ignore everybody else like it was just a normal RPG.

You're an idiot. I'm not a fan of MMO's and I really like Kotor and this game is great so far. It's smoothed a LOT of what annoyed me in Wow plus my BH story has been pretty cool so far.

That's how I've been doing it and have been doing fine and really enjoying it. Haven't been able to do some of the Heroic missions but will go back later when higher level.

For the guys saying you should play it like and RPG. What will you do when you hit level 50 and all you will have left is combat? Will it still worth the monthly fee?

@Veektarius: When customers can't play the game they paid for that's a poor launch to me.

Kinda off topic, but I just found out DAVID HAYTER is the voice of the male jedi knight, and the first dude you talk to is Cam Clarke AKA LIQUID SNAKE'S ARM!

This is how you make a good interview, 2 or more people just having a conversation.

I agree. It's the long term that will decide, but as far as gameplay and story are concerned, there is no equal.

...well "LEAD WRITER." I recall Jeff kept saying the game sux but the writing is good! Slide that in there.

The game is packed with high profile voice talent. Jennifer Hale, Steve Blum, James Urbaniak. Nolan North even does some extras.

I liked the interview, made me want to buy the game, but Origin is apparently out so guess I won't buy it. They never make enough of those digital copies do they.

I wish their was some B-Roll footage of the game during the the interview. Not a ton, but it would make the interview more compelling visually, as well as giving people who are not familiar with the game some type of visual reference for the interview topics.

Who can't play the game and why? If you mean queues, there are plenty of servers that don't have a queue.
