    Could only watch about 5 mins of the first video before i came completely bored with it. Is there anything new about this MMO other than some fancy dialogue?
    I hate the graphics, although im certain kids will love it, not a bad way to market it i suppose.

    Heh nowhere did I say WoW was original, it was just a popular game I used as an example.

    what about the jedi sage and the commando even the guy on stage

    'commandos want to stay back and shoot.....not melee range..... shoot from range'

    and

    'use the sage to buff and heal your allies... top him up and then help... use your cc on him, to late hes out of range..'

    guy sounded like he was holding back the rage :p

    Is it just me or what?

    Everytime I see a swtor video it looks worse and worse and worse :/

    The CGI is best i ever seen.... but the game isn't CGI

    That pvp video made me f**king sad. Looked so boring.

    Im still looking forward to this and I have it preordered... but I really hope its a lot better than what I'm seeing in the videos.

    Meh still not convinced this is going to be the next big thing, but figure there should be enough value in it for the story while leveling. Basicly worse case is you treat it like a new KTOR game with some other people running around.
    PvP or raiding working out fun will then be a bonus...

    Still mostly enjoying rift, and one man (with a full time job) can only serve one MMO master...

    Still unsure if CE is worth it..

    Of course it's worth it.

    Just how often does a Star Wars game come along, anyway?

    It was just wow bg's reskinned... pretty much what was expected. The whole game just looks so amazingly average. If it wasn't Star Wars, I don't think it would even be given any attention at all.

    I don't see this or anything else really challenging WoW. Not because WoW is any better or worse, but more because the majority of it's playerbase has already invested alot of time in it to simply drop it and change games.

    No doubt there are plenty if people looking for a change though, myself included. TOR is the only decent alternative that I can foresee.

    It just depends on the people you play with. The majority of those i play with on RIFT are moving to TOR or have preordered already. No point playing RIFT if all your mates are going to play TOR.
