I can't wait to get my hands on the game. I hope they show more gameplay soon.

I'm excited for it, since it seems like it'll be amazing. But I'm not horribly hyped up yet. It's not coming out for another year most likely anyway.

I'm still looking forward to it, but I'm not as hyped as I was when it was announced. For me The Secret World looks a lot more appealing because of the class- and levelless system Funcom have promised us.

Every time I watch the "Deception" trailer, it gives me chills. I am still very much hyped up for this, and the trickle of info is driving me a little nuts. I'd like to see more featurettes about system features like the Flashpoints; give more examples of how they're being used in-game, how do you decide who speaks when, will they play more like dungeons in WoW or Episodes in STO?

Tgese are the things that keep me up at night, wishing I'd applied for that frelling job at Bioware Austin...

After experiencing what BioWare did to Mass Effect 2 (and DAO:A), I've pretty much lost all faith in the company to produce story-driven games. Sure, the combat was better, but that was the only thing that was improved. Everything else was a complete step backwards. Story-wise, you'd find more depth (and less feces) in the child section of your local swimming pool. Considering that BioWare is gambling on their exalted "Fourth Pillar" for SWTOR's success, my hype has pretty much fizzled.

Not really. I don't really care for the art style nor did the animations and combat impress me.

I'll try it out though.

No. I was initially excited by the Smuggler class and cover mechanics, until I saw it in action. Its ugly, its badly animated (which may change) and its rather hard to ignore the visual difference in the attacks, which amount to watching orangeish blaster fire at varying speeds.

Worse still are the Trooper attacks. The rocket launcher is dumb, and the "sticky bomb" animation is 13 year old idiot bait. I'd rather play with adults.

That leaves, what, the two jedi and the Imperial Agent that still look interesting.

Still hyped for Star Wars: The Old Republic?

Oh yah! 'nuff said.

Yes I'm still excited and I don't give a damn what anyone else says.

I'm definitely still excited.

Still excited. I'm near the end of Dragon Age and I'm truthfully blown away by that game. It's the best game I've ever played and the most immersed I've ever felt in a fantasy world.

If they can do the same thing in an MMORPG - they are golden. Even if the game burns itself out after a month or two of gameplaying, that's a month or two that I will be paying a subscription.

I am not as hyped as I was when I first heard about the game. Back then I had the forums open 24/7 and was refreshing every few minutes, making posts and trying to be vocal. Now, I only really go to the website on Fridays for updates or occasionally when I see an article on another site about a heated topic being discussed.

I am still going to play this game when it comes out, and I plan on dumping WoW when it is. I just wish we could see some info about something other than story. I know it's a huge part of how they plan on sell the game to us, but for an MMO there are other things that are important alongside story.

Hopefully the promised updates before E3 will reveal something new.

I won't get excited until after I've logged in for the first time.

Cant wait.

I look forward to Fridays just for the updates on the game.

It just seems to get better and better as the Fridays roll past!

When I can I'm pre-ordering.

The fact that: Star Wars IP+ BioWare developing + Focus on Story + EA's cash= Epic win

Just waiting on some info on pvp, races and space now and seeing how the time lines tern out :)

I am hyped in terms of the the story behind this game based on what we have seen on the marketing side. I am not hyped on the entire game play itself because I have no idea how the game play will be in terms of interactions with vehicles, environments, and other areas of game play that I would like to enjoy. Don't get me wrong. I love what I have seen so far. But I am at 50% hyped until I can see the rest of the game.

Not excited, but for different reasons.

One is I don't really care for the Star Wars IP that much. Both it and Star Trek are both past their prime and are just kept alive to make money for their creators and to satisfy the devout fans. Interest for me peaked at about the time of the Rogue Squadron games.

Another is I don't really like Bioware's style of gameplay. I don't really like having to be saintly/evil/snarky and have that affect my character. In an MMO especially that's going to lead to it being a joke as people metagame convo trees to get the best rewards and advantages, let alone what happens if the convo has meaningul impact on abilities and stats.

I'll be playing FFXIV over it.

I am still hyped about this game, but the recent FFXIV hype has definitely caught quite a bit of my attention. So I guess my internal hype-o-meter is split between two games.

Why is it whenever I see screens of this game it looks like tweaked Clone Wars art?

Am I hyped? Not at all because I don`t like the art and gameplay I've seen so far.

Games I'm really waiting are GW2,TSW and waiting for 38 studios to give more infos on Copernicus.

Heck yes ! And I predict that a few months in to the release, when SW:ToR is doing phenomenally well, all these skeptics will be piping off in chat how they knew it would be great all a long....watch.
