Its those stupid Jedi holding technology back. Peaceful guardians bah. I always play the Sith in these games. That trailer looked really good, and would have made a great scene for a movie.
I've always chalked up the stangant tech to the wars. With the Jedi and Sith basically taking genocidal shots at each other every few hundred years tech in the galaxy keeps getting knocked back as planets and civlizations are wiped out over and again. Not to mention probably a certain amount of, at least at first, deliberate retardation of tech of Sith orgins but could still be useful to the general populace.

Just gotta wait for Lucas to die, then we'll get all the really great Star Wars stories we can stomach. Guaranteed.

In Bioware We Trust.

Everything Lucas got wrong, Bioware got EVER SO MUCH right in KOTOR 1. It's the true heir to The Originals. Make no mistake about it.

Re: I Want This as a Star Wars Film Now

Looks great. Pretty pissed that it's a MMORPG rather than a regular game, i.e. KOTOR 3.

I'm not going to play the online game, but would LOVE a regular continuation of the franchise...

That is the only downside I have with this game right now: MMO. I enjoy playing MMOs from time to time, but I loath playing SW games online. Past experience had taught me that Star wars gaming online tends to draw in a higher than normal level of douchebags. Usually the "dude, this isn't canon Jedi can't do this, this is just some EU shit" type.

Holy rancor! I may not be a big SW fan, but wow that has even me drooling. According to my son - who IS a huge SW fan - it's a good thing to have BioWare involved. From the trailer I agree. Of course, the finished product may not look quite as good as the trailer, but still.....

I swear if that was a trailer for a movie, all the people in here would be complaining about the slow motion and speed ramping.

Zach Snyder directs Star Wars.

Re: I Want This as a Star Wars Film Now

I've never liked the concept of Online Massive Multiplayer things, generally because with all the other demands on my time I can never give more than a few hours per weekend, maybe one or two hours during the week, and can't keep up with the really hardcore gamers. But this looks so awesome I might give the format a try. (Was that Malak at the head of the Sith Armada, or just somebody who looks like him?)

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Just looks like him. Malak has been dead for about 300 years at this point. That Sith character isn't given a name.

The Jedi Temple was attacked, by over twenty Sith led by an unknown Sith, his Twi'lek aide and assisted by a bounty hunter.

Here's a video showing the timeline of the game:

And you can read the first webcomic (Threat of Peace) leading up to the game on the main site.

Re: I Want This as a Star Wars Film Now

I wish this wasn't an MMO, then I'd be likely to play it.

I still think that the first KOTOR should have been an ST movie. My wife happened to walk in at the 'twist' and insisted I play the cutscenes for her and wanted to know everything that happened in the story up until then. She likes Star Wars, but actually would watch me play so she could find out what happened next in the story

Re: I Want This as a Star Wars Film Now

It does look really awesome, and I'll still at least give this game a shot because 1) it's BioWare, and 2) I'm curious to see if they really can pull off actually giving the game a worthwhile and continuing story.

Re: I Want This as a Star Wars Film Now

This is going to be one of those games, once it's in full release and people in bulk play it, is going to really rock or going to crash and burn hard. I don't see a lot of middle ground given the hype.

Are we sure he isn't Lord Angral?
