Star Wars: The Old Republic

5 weeks away, I'm due for the next weekend test.

Probably go Jedi Consular or Sith Inquisitor.

I've made the decision to pass on this one. I love BioWare and Star Wars to death, but MMO's just don't do it for me.

Does KOTOR actually have a campaign that you finish?? and like.. a real story and shit?


The only MMORPGs i got into were WoW and LOTR, and I felt like both of them sucked due to lack of story. It's like.. why should I give a shit? I'm not saving the world or doing anything really except running around with a bunch of nerds killing things for no reason...

The storyline is massive, already built upon the infinite Star Wars Lore that existed before. Plus BioWare developed it, if you like Mass Effect's storytelling you'll like TOR's.


Anyone else do the weekend beta testing?

Seems pretty fun so far, definitely a lot smoother in the PVE/questing department than other MMOs, almost seems too easy. Didn't get high enough to do pvp testing though, but the spells/abilities have been pretty sweet too. Plus the incredible amount of a-list voice acting and cut scenes really add something other MMOs have lacked.

never even played guild wars but I'm not dumb enough to blindly base my opinion on something having zero knowledge of its upcoming predecessor.

watch, learn and maybe become interested

I can't wait for this game, it's gonna be so sick! I'm not to fond of the monthly fee though, but I knew it as going to have one. I'm going to make a Smuggler or a Bounty Hunter.

I think Guild Wars 2 is going to suck.

trust me, i've checked it out. it just doesn't look..... good.


star wars is improved wow with a star wars skin. that pretty much sums it up. it has some improvements and some cool game systems but all in all basically an improved wow (which isn't necessarily a bad thing)
