    Gabe over at Penny Arcade has been playing the beta and put up a big post with some of his thoughts today. It's here, just scroll down a bit. My favorite bit:

    It's KOTOR with the same gameplay of World of Warcraft. It's funny, I love both of these games but I really don't give a shit about this.

    The release date is stated as "Targeted for Holiday 2011".

    That's pretty much as firm as any other big ticket game's release date, and this may be the most anticipated MMO in years!

    I will definitely not try it, even though or maybe exactly because I'm convinced it will be a very good if not great MMORPG.

    Playing WoW starting with the early Betas and then again from launch for about 2 years, I've kinda had my fill with the genre, you know?

    I tend to get very competitive when it comes to MMOs which means they become quite time-consuming and... let's say, less than healthy in more ways than one.

    Pre-ordered my CE today.

    It's exciting and disheartening at the same time.

    Tried to preorder from the email I got and was told it wasn't available in my region.

    Definitely will be dropping WoW and trying ToR for a couple months.. or knowing me leaving the WoW sub running anyway. I'm looking fwd to it.

    Last time I spent some time on the ToR site I couldn't find anything about races you can play other than human, anyone know offhand?
