    Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG

    I will be playing this game, would like to know if anybody else here is planning on diving into this MMO. For the people not in the loop: it's a MMORPG (like wow) in the Star Wars universe where the timeline of the game exists prior to the movies we know.

    If you would like to know more:

    Never played WoW so something in the Star Wars universe might be interesting.

    It looked interesting, but the graphics looked really bad for this day in age. I'm really hoping they do better on that. Still looking forward to seeing how it turns out. I'm really looking forward to Guild Wars 2 though, played the first one a lot back in the day. Still log in every now and then.

    It depends what you like. I like MMO's played wow for quite some time. This mmo is a little different because of the emphasis it carries on quests. In wow most people never read the quest just look at the numbers of what they need to kill and run. Here you have voice over cut scenes which are done very very well. Think of Mass Effect and it's exactly like that, sprinkle in some mmorpg play with other players and you have Star Wars. This is the mmo I was waiting for to replace WoW, I've tried:

    Aion
    Lord of The Rings
    Everquest 2
    Eve

    None of which kept my attention for the same duration as WoW had. I got into the beta a few weeks ago to give it a test run and it's a very polished fun mmo by my standards. I shall be playing it.

    The graphics are not bad at all, the art style isn't realistic (cartoon look) because this game is going to be for the masses so every range of computers need to play it. If you have a hefty machine, turn everything up to max and it looks great.

    As far as GW2, I'm just so done and so tired of all the effing fantasy settings screw Elves and Dwarves hate them with a passion!!!!

    Hahaha true, I'm guessing most of the beta gameplay videos were shown in low quality. I'll check out some videos again, I heard they have a closed beta or something not to long ago. Anytime date set for the release?

    Will this be PC only. My Dell xps 2010 or whatever this James bond briefcase looking thing died on me. They bait and switched me or something processor sucks. My girl couldn't even play the newest sims when PC still worked.

    I'm OG kush and skyrim nerd right now!!

    I was in the BETA since the private about 1 year ago. It has come a long way. I didn't test it much but when I did it was pretty good. Its Bioware so its heavily story driven and the cut scenes are just like KOTOR if you have ever played that. All and all if you enjoy the Star Wars universe and enjoy MMO's you should like SWTOR. Also its nothing like WOW other than the hampster wheels type of game play,

    Yes, I will be playing it. I was in the weekend BETAs, and the game is amazing. A total WOW killer for sure. God knows how much time I'll have to play it within the week though - I'm still lvl 14 in Skyrim lol..........

    The official release is for December 20th. The graphics are more in line with the cartoons Clone Wars series, but for a video game I believe they do the job.

    I got a chance to play the beta on a friend's account. I have to say that it's actually really good. Each class has it's own story mode so that leveling doesn't get boring and the PvP game is pretty fun. Reminds me of gladiators. You have 2 endzones and there's a ball, basically whoever has the ball has to try to get it into the opposite endzone but the other team tries to stop them using all their powers and stuff. It was pretty entertaining...I think the big thing is the story mode though. Makes leveling different toons interesting and fun! Click here to enlarge I know I'm going to play it...

    That's not to far away, guess I'll wait until it comes out and see some videos people put up. I'm sure they'll have a trial as well.

    Yeah...it's your fault for living in the wrong part of the country. You're supposed to be where civilization in this country began, in the Eastern United States.

    We kind of prefer to avoid witch trials, religious nutjobs, and being close to Jersey.
