    Yep, this is what's been rumoured for quite some time now, when it was revealed that Bioware was working with Lucasarts on some project.

    Most believed it'd be KOTOR 3, but it looks like that's not quite the case.

    Looks like they would have taken a page from WoW's book on this and put it on both Windows and Mac and let them play together. Otherwise, this looks fun for a day or two and then you realize that it is a serious clusterfuck if they let you choose Jedi as a class off the bat. I loved having my pre-patch jedi on Galaxies and being able to run through about 30 other players at once, but once they let everyone be jedi then it sucked the big one.

    It's not going to be as good as WoW. Period.




    And KOTOR 1 and 2 are two of my favorite games of all time, so much so that my name is a reference to them.

    Not every MMO that comes out is trying to be a WoW killer, stop being a fanboi.

    I'm not being a fanboy. I just don't want to hear the expectation levelled against it as it has against every major MMO in the past few years. Because there's no way it can be right out the gate. I don't want to see it get thrashed for not being what it can't and probably isn't trying to be.

    ARE TOO! hehe

    I still think EQ2 is better than WoW...both are the same age and have massive polish, but EQ2 fans aren't as rabid and SOE's marketing sucks. Warhammer is doing great and also has the marketing potential of Blizzard, but lacks the polish...Bioware will have a strong crowd show up for this MMO, but since LucasArts is attached, I'm scared...because they are cancer to video games.

    Yes, that's more or less my exact fear. Pressure is what made KOTOR 2 the way it was. As much as I loved that game, it could have been much better and more polished if it wasn't pushed so hard.

    I would rather have a Kotor 3. I don't have the time to invest in an any MMO.

    WoW sucks.

    Ever since SWG got roooooned, I've been looking for something to fill the void. WOW didn't do it for me, due to it's typical leveling system, quests, and the stupid specified zones for certain levels. SWG was an open world sandbox MMO where you could pick and chose your skills. Well....not anymore. Fucking Sony.

    Hopefully TOR will be similar to SWG, although I'm sure there will be some sort of leveling system, which is disappointing. But...since everyone's a Jedi, I guess you kinda have to do it that way.


    We'll see. I do like the idea of cinematic fight scenes.

    My MMO career has been one big disappointment after another. SOE ruins everything they touch so I learned a long time ago not to play their games at least. NCSoft is also shit. I played WoW which was fun for a while but then you hit the end game and realize you're gonna be raiding for weeks to get some stupid fucking item only to keep up with everyone else, when all I really want to do is gank people. Warhammer was overhyped, underdeveloped, unbalanced and a fucking grind-fest to boot. Total garbage.

    People talk about getting addicted to MMOs but I find myself getting sick of them faster than most game genres. At first they're awesome because they're new....Then that wears off and I find myself bitching about the game's faults for a month...Then the devs inevitably do jack shit, or more often they actually make the game worse and I quit. It happens almost every time. Yet I'll still probably buy the next super hyped MMO that comes out, probably this one, thinking everything will work out just fine this time.

    I concur with this post. MMO's are fun until they turn into "work".

    The problem is when they're too easy. Everyone in WOW has the exact same gear and looks the same. The only game that ever got it right was EQ1.

    If you want easy, play a FPS online.

    The only MMO I care about right now is Jumpgate Evolution...and I probably won't even play that.

    Personally I can't afford to pay 15 bucks a month for a game plus 50 just to buy. No more MMOs for me.

    You're mostly right, especially about the highlighted statement.

    However, what will be nice about this MMO is that Sony will have nothing to do with it. It's all Lucasarts and Bioware.

    And they are also trying to incorporate more story elements into this one, making it much more like the KOTOR series in that every choice you make affects the outcome of your character. Rather than a linear set of guidelines for your class, you are able to CHOOSE what you do, and those choices create your own unique story.

    Also, fucking cinematic fight scenes.

    I'm pumped for this MMO. Sony FUCKED Star Wars: Galaxies, and I'm glad to see that they will have nothing to do with this project.

    In defense of SOE, I still think EQ2 is the best MMO out. I'd still be playing it if I didn't jump over to WAR and then get disgusted with MMOs.
