I certainly hope they do something about the character movements. Just doesn't look fluid to me.

Still gonna play it though.

@Meganerd If you don't like the stock library of Dragon Age and Mass Effect skeletal animations, you'll continue to be disappointed. Fortunately there are no awkward sex scenes, just fading to black.

All of the other non combat animations look pretty good but I'd have to agree with you about the running animations. Just looks off.

Still, I thought it was a pretty cool trailer. I'd like to see some of that space action they had in the first part of the trailer in the game.

@Meganerd The jumping animation is the worst offender, I can deal with everything else but I'll try not to jump. :S

I agree, the jumping animations are quite bad. The rest are fine in my books.

Animations? Here is a sample of the best animated MMO out at the moment. All character movements are fluid and life like. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBvCZCIHRsA&NR=1

@Poordevil Animations in that game were pretty good. Too bad about the rest of the game.

Still meh on the animation there. Tell me, when you get struck really hard, does only your head twitch a little? His head, arms, body, and legs should be reeling. Plus what the hell is with being able to shoot an arrow point blank? If I was that mob we'd be wrestling on the ground with that bow broken in half! That also needs fixing in mmo's. So NO on this being an example of fluid animation. Currently there is no acceptable animations on human movement. With that being said SWToR does decent animations judging by what is out there.

It looked just like a montage really! I've decided to postpone my rages and just wait to see what changes are until launch. It's BW, they might be able to turn it around.

Well, nice to see the iconic characters in-game, but the trooper's face does look rather roughed up.

Also, what the HECK was that last bit? Looked like an Imperial Agent waring sunglasses but he had a bazooka and was holding it like a mini-gun! Or was that a smuggler? (Doubting the Smuggler...)

That's...pretty heavy artillery for an Agent that I'd expect to see for the Trooper!

@Space Cobra

waring=wearing

And he fired it like a bazooka on re-watching, but slung it down afterwards.

@Space Cobra My guess is that it's part of the open PvP on Ilum

Yeah, I know, just that the scratches look a bit different from the Blur videos. I realize it's just the art style (Editor's note : I LIKE the art style! No zingers, please! ;P ).

@Lucidus @Larry Everett

Yeah, but what seems to interest me is that Imp. Agent's have access to such weapons, that, IMHO, should be for Troopers. Of course, it could be a special one-shot quest thingie. Sorta like CoH, where they give you a fire extinguisher to use in one mission and it's only good for that one mission and one target?

Of course, if an Agent can use such a weapon more frequently, I may feel a greater need to roll/play one now; blowing up stuff can be good!
