The trailer looked good...Hopefully the game will be too whenever it comes out

The trailer was epic if the game is anything like it, it might have a chance to give wow a run for its money.

#3 Posted by geraldthesloth (33313 posts) - - Show Bio

I agree..I got over wow a while ago.

If it brings what the website says it plans to bring it looks like it might be the first legit one like you said.

Oh man I was searching for a thread about this the other day and I was surprised that I couldn't find one.I have been watching that trailer over and over again since E3.I am not an MMO kind of gamer but I am so anxious to play this.No doubt one of the best videogame trailers nay one of the greatest trailers ever.

but I'd rather have KOTOR instead of any MMO.

You have to keep in mind that MMO's are a lot about community as well. Not just gameplay. I've met some of the nicest people and people who I still consider friends and family from playing Star Wars Galaxies. A lot of us have come and gone from that game as the years passed. Since they changed it up so often, many times unjustly so and making the game worse. We're all hoping this game is worth it so we reuinite and beat some Sith @$$!
If this game ends up being as good as I Hope it is. Andferne will be returning to the Star Wars Universe.

going to be the first mmo i play i think

#26 Posted by .Spider-man. (3938 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not a fan of MMO's being made to accommodate platforms. There is just too many limitations that get introduced that way.

Will do, but I won't come alone. I'll have my Ice Dragons to back my war efforts. :P
I loved PvPing in SWG, some of my favorite moments are in pvp. That and I loved finding ways to solo the missions that were unsoloable. lol
We'll have to make sure to get on the same server so that we can face off then.

The opening trailer you posted is just that. A trailer, no game ends up looking as smooth as them.
From what I have seen on the actual game play it won't look like that. Unless they have changed things. Been a while since I checked my account on their website and what all has gone on. Just waiting for them to send me my email for open beta when it start.s lol

As weird as this sounds. And I know it does. I like City of Heroes much more than WoW.

YES!
I can't stand Wow, personally. Last year or so I've been back to playing CoH again. They have recently done some cool updates for it too. A mission creator where you can make your own missions and have people play through them. Also their next expansion is going to come out soon, which takes you into their cross world, where the heroes are villains. Also in that one you will be able to make Villains become heroes and vice versa.

@geraldthesloth:
Not to me. I remember the original and second game you saw the lightsabers actually making contact. This looks like the sabers are just swining around. IDK, maybe it'll look better if I played.

Also take into consideration that this one is made to be a MMO. If they used the same graphics as the KoTor games, then not very many machines and platforms would be able to run this game without serious lag. Unlike those first two games you are going to have hundreds of people on the servers. If you have never played a MMO then you won't understand this part.

The vidoe that Light posted is also a early version of gameplay. That was one of the if not the first game play video they released for viewing. Once Beta openings up and the game goes live that will be fine tuned some. The actual graphics of the game are awesome, IMO. Not counting the overly large Lightsabers, which is something I hope they fix.
