Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic anticipation thread.

Which one? Each class has its own class story, so there are eight stories taking place across the different planets, with shared side quests.

The only one I got into in any depth during the two weekends that I tested was the Bounty Hunter class story. It starts off simple enough with your character vying for entry into the Great Hunt, which is basically a competition for glory originally organized by the Mandalorian clans. Naturally events become more personal, and you can start treating the Hunt as either purely for your personal glory or as a means by which to gain revenge for an act perpetrated fairly early in your story.

Most of the side quests that I undertook were well-done in story terms, offering the BioWare hallmark of different choices and outcomes that you'd expect.

The development team has posted a more detailed explanation regarding beta clients versus launch client:

If you participated in our Game Testing Program before November 25th, we recommend that you uninstall the game testing client [...] and then download and install the launch game client. Please note: a link to download the launch game client will be emailed to you soon, and we’ll update this post with more instructions when they’re available. The size of the launch game client is approximately 27 GB.

If you have played in our game testing program at any point from November 25th onwards, you will not need to re-install the game client, as you should already have the launch version installed.
See the link for more information, including how to determine if you have the launch version if you're not sure which version you have.

for UK guys, mate of mine rang up GAME and they told him they plan to ship the game early due to early access so they should reach people by the 15th.

So I deleted my beta client for nothing, and now have to waste another 14 hours installing the launch client.

Great.

Alright, that's pretty funny. Interesting to see what look like black lightstaffs.
The Reupubs followed their dance party with a mass suicide off a ledge in Coruscant to celebrate the end of beta. It was hilarious.

I finished the Revan book last night.

And now I'm on the verge of a complete nerd RAGE.

Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic anticipation thread.

I'm going to assume CorporalClegg didn't like the fate(s) of a / some character(s) in the book. I'm not quite sure how I feel in that regard, though overall I enjoyed the book (Deceived, too, for that matter; Fatal Alliance not so much).


BioWare has been releasing tracks from the soundtrack on the game's Facebook fan page. These tracks are not on the soundtrack included in the Collector's Edition, and they are releasing one per day up to the 20th. Seven tracks have been released so far.

Individual, direct links:

As I understand it, lighstaff is just another word for those. My point was, there's black crystals? Awesome! Although the yellow hue around them is a weird choice.

I read the two chapters that came out on swtor's website, and was suitably intrigued. I was thinking about getting it, but then realized that the plot had already made it onto wookiepedia when an unrelated reasearch thread led me to the appropriate pages. So being spoiled to the whole story, I don't know if it's still worth a read. Although the presence of another major playable character is definitely interesting.

For those individuals who don't already have a copy of the game installed, now is the time to download! You need to have pre-ordered the game and redeemed your pre-order code in your account on the SWTOR.com website. Early Game Access invitations will start being sent out on Dec 13.
