    Default Star Wars: The Old Republic

    Was just curious as to whos going to be playing it, if anyone. Not that it matters, it will prob have separate US/EU servers but still.

    I convinced a friend who has a beta account to let me play last night, and it's fucking amazing. Quests with actual real storys, mini cutscenes...actually felt like a real rpg more than an mmo, felt very kotor-ish.

    Will most likely swap wow for this.

    edit: whoa how did i put this in the wrong forum...
    daitengu can you move to gamers haven plskthx?

    I kinda want to play it but I'm trying to figure out if it's past the nerdiness threshold I require all my games to stay in.

    Bethesda? You mean....Bioware?

    Also, I played this game and Guild Wars 2 and I have to say there is no way you can convince me to play this game after playing GW2. Not worth the 15 bucks a month.

    Sponge here is a quick quiz:

    1. Does it involve sports?
    2. Is it called "Call of Duty?"

    If you answered yes to one of the previous questions, it is acceptable

    Looks like typical grindy MMO fare. Not enough of a Star Wars fan to care about controlling a CGI puppet with a lightsaber or blaster. Not interested.

    I'm looking forward to GW2. If that doesn't save the MMO sector, then it's hopeless.

    It is still kinda grindy but the real difference are the storys and mincut scenes, it really feels more like an rpg than an mmo, I'm loving it.

    And obviously its star wars so...
    yeah if you don't like it then lol not for you

    and tbh the fights are really well choreographed so its pretty entertaining just to watch, even for grinding.

    got my spaceship yesterday, and got called to go help in some space battles.
    amazingly epic fun. quite hard though, will need to upgrade the parts in my ship.

    had to destroy some space destroyers with large fighter squadrons etc...
    again, very similar to the films.

    so, so far you can get equipment for you, your companions, and your ships.
    awesome.

    i wouldn't be writing this much about it if you hadn't expressed your pain tbh lol.
    do you love it because me writing about it is lol or because you're genuinely interested.

    i will probably stop soon if not the latter, can't imagine there is anything else amazingly epic to write about.
    tried pvp the other day, it was ok, as expected really.

    You are, I've played a few hours and I know it wouldn't be so hyped if it wasn't a star wars game, cause it's not very good.

    Do you know the definition of insane? It's usually what applies to MMOs including this game.

    orly is that so? lol.
    my point was that saying i'm over hyping it is one thing...

    but to say the game is not very good? just not true i'm afraid, it's more than a decent game.

    More then decent<Not very good. It can be good, but not VERY good. It's something I can see people getting bored of after a couple weeks.

    It depends on what aspects you're judging.

    If you're judging a game in beta based on things like class balance, which can often be corrected by tweaking numbers or class mechanics, then it isn't fair to condemn a game based on such flaws.

    However, if you're judging a game in beta on mechanics that are so deeply fundamental to the game that to change them in any meaningful way would require a revamping of the game from the ground up, then such criticism is valid since no changes past beta can address these issues.

    For example, during beta, a lot of people panned Rift as just being another MMO grindfest with nothing truly novel to offer, except for rifts which were at best an evolutionary innovation that still left the fundamental gaming experience untouched and at worst a novelty whose interest will wear off quickly. This criticism remains valid, since it addressed the fundamental mechanics of the game that could not possibly be altered during beta, unless the developers were willing to scrap the game entirely and start from scratch.

    The alternative would be to add underdeveloped and ill conceived game mechanics that fit poorly into the game's design at the last minute. This type of gaming development helped lead to WAR's demise.
