Firstly: COMPLETELY AWESOME

However, my main concern is the player character's voice. With all those lines of dialog with each class, does it mean that every player of a certain class will have the same voice? That's a tiny bit of a turn-off if so.

Jadsta, I believe that's Steven Blum. If you watched Cowboy Bebop, that's Spike's voice.

"No one has tried to deliver this amount of immersion in a video game so far."

FFS. I was quite enjoying it up until that.

Marketing department uses [Hyperbolic Comment]. It's super effective!

Stunning. Lovely to see gameplay footage finally. Hats off to Bioware and Lucasarts. Very much looking forward to this game, as is my boyfriend. Having absolutely everything voice acted will change games forever, certainly MMOs. Wasn't so sure they could actually pull it off, but wow, does seem like they have cracked it.

Rumors have it that there are multiple voices you can choose for your player character, so its likely we won't all sound the same :) Worth keeping a careful eye on the SWTOR forums. No doubt we'll hear much more with the coming appearance of Bioware/Lucasarts at Comicon'09.

Can't wait!

Interesting. My real question is during those nice shots of outdoor scenery, cities in the distance. Are there invisible walls along the path to them? Can you even walk to them? Or is it a bunch of instanced zones akin to AoC? If they are, that's negative points for me. If you can , however, go explore and have a ball trying to get to them and you eventually can, then WOW!

Well this is bioware and sadly its likey they are invisible walls like you see in mass effect and many other games I do not think they changes the way they design games. I somehow looking more forward to Dragon Age them this.

This game is looking more epic each time they release new info.

My only concern right now is, with content being so immersive and scripted. How will that effect grouping in this game? Will one player of the group be the "star" character? Or will each player be the main character in the dialog scenes?

Exactly? Will I really have to listen to the same dialog if I go back an help a friend who just started the Game? Will I have a hard time chatting with my friends when there are these guys talking all the time? If you walk by while someone else is starting a quest to you hear the quest giver yapping? What if there are 10 people starting the same quest/Storyline? Is it all completely instanced?

All the bits I have seen so far make it seem like this is a one month, or two month game and then I will get bored with the story, cuz really I could care less, I just want to kill stuff, and have fun with my friends.

This game just looks great.

For my money, the more Co-RPG/soloable it is, the better.

"SWToR is the end of WoW."

I hope not. A transfer of that community would not be so good :p

Same here...we don't need the elitist kiddie/soccer mom crowd to ruin this game, too.

I heard someone refer to WoW as a "McMMO" the other day and I had a good laugh at how accurate that name is.

I hope SWTOR doesn't get the WOW killer hype. Wqrhammer Online is a fine example of EA overhyping it's brands and for Star Wars sake I hope they shy away from it this time around.
