Woohoo! But, is it twitch or RPG skill-based like ground combat? Such great info but so little of it!

It isn't a proper Star Wars title without blowing away Republic scum.

Read what Sean said carefully, no where did he mention enemy player ships, or that we will be fighting each other in space. He just says enemy ships, frigates, and asteroids.

This game gets better and better. Sure it isn't totally original, but to be honest... polishing what already works and adding a few new twists seems to be a good way to make a great game. I can't wait.

@etheral.wolf How do you even know what the finished game is going to be like, it's still almost a year out. You shouldn't make assumptions until it at least goes into beta.

While I do love all BioWare games, including ME2. The original Mass Effect was definitely superior to Mass Effect 2's 10-12 hours worth of shooter gameplay.

Forgiven? What have they ever done but make great games?

@Excelsior They did dumb down Mass Effect 2 into a simplistic shooter.

That's almost unforgivable.

Except that ME2 was a much more polished and overall better game than the first one.. if it wasn't, you'd have a point. But no.

@excelsior: forgiven for making TOR a reskinned EQ-clone with some added story. if they make the space combat twitch based i will overlook their transgressions.

@Chris So you would rather sacrifice the RPG part of the game so it can be a polished shooter? Are you stupid? Mass Effect is a masterpiece.

ME2 is a dumbed down short bus shooter made so children and the very stupid Halo / CoD fans could play it.

I'm sure EA is mostly to blame, but Bioware is too.

Even the sex scenes are dumbed down, lol.


I'm sure The Old Republic is going to suck for people that like good games but since EA is part of it then it will be a good enough WoW clone to make some profit.

All they really need to do is pull an Avatar and put tons of commercials everywhere and the weak minded will come running saying how great of a game it is and how original it is, lol.

I'm sure Bioware is relieved to know you guys may possibly find a way to forgive them. And what western MMO couldn't in some way, shape or form be called an EQ/WoW clone? Nothing revolutionary was ever promised, just a better Star Wars MMO than we currently have.

If it needs to break the mold for some to be happy, then we'll just have a miserable minority for a long, long time.

Very good news, a space mmo would not be complete without planet exploration and space combat! Way awesome.

So much for the haters and their certainty that this title would launch sans space. That was one of the biggest mistakes Galaxies made, and it's nice to see these devs have learned from that.
