Just to clarify: They aren't zombies, they're mutants. Big difference. Zombies are infected, they die, then they get back up and try to eat your face.

Rakghouls are infected then they mutate into a different species....that then tries to eat your face.

Yes, but it's much easier just to call them Zombies. Plus, the different types are like carbon copies of Left 4 Dead zombies. It is a great FP though, made it like 3/4 the way in.

Hmm wasnt Left 4 dead WAY after SW? I mean Rakghouls were in the KOTOR and lore way before no?

@(Unverified) Yes they were and different species would mutate differently (they actually recycled some of the ideas in to the Dragon Age mythos especially given the Rhakgouls are created by Sith Sourcery ergo Magic.)

@MorbidCuriousity Thank you, my thoughts exactly. I mean come on, they aren't zombies. They aren't undead, they are monsters that eat flesh but that could be said about lots of things. If you have to compare them to a movie trope the closest they'd come are 28 Days Later "Zombies" which Zombie movie fans will tell you aren't Zombies. The closest you could compare is you could say they were bitten by Rage Wookiees (and in fact there are Wookiee Rhakghouls the Sith did some crazy stuff with their genetic mutations.)

Why are we all supposed to hate SWTOR again?

Because if you don't your part of the mindless masses and defy the hipster code to hate anything that is hyped.

Or because the game is actually pretty terrible? That is the more logical of the explanations.

BW made it out to be the second coming of Jesus and all you got was a game that talked to you and some cinematic cut scenes.

I'm a forum goer and a gamer who has played MMOs for nearly a decade.
And I love the game.
Does that mean I'm right?

Yes this is my first day of gaming...I should go on forums and listen to hipster nerds for a "true" opinion of a video game. Especially somebody who "supposedly" has a long history with mmos and somehow TOR made them nerd rage so badly.

Only reason I'm hating on SWTOR is because of the amount of money they poured into it and we got a pile of WoW in space.

I for one never found SWTOR to be interesting at all in the first place, so there is no way I will be saying nice things about it.

I guess it is good that SWTOR has alot of social emotes.

Why is it you TROLL so hard for Swtor? Anything Swtor related, you are there, talking negative. OKAY! So you don't like the game, good job captain move along. From here to Joystiq, to where ever i see, your name, you hop onto SWTOR topics and post nothing of value, whether it be positive or negative.

I call shenanigans, with the way you troll, I don't think you have EVER played it. You Google and Youtube all of your info, then hop on your shitty Netbook and come here to pretend you've been doing MMO/ Gaming thing for years. You have too much time to be on forums for this to be true. Sad life is sad life, and i accept no rebuttals.

Kneel before me.
