I'll be trying it simply because Bioware produce good games.

Might also be cool to hook up on the same server as some other Wow Players from these forums as well.

Not to derail an amazing thread on an amazing game. But I really have to speak up here.

I too hated ME the first time I played it. (360). But when I "found" the game for the computer I said heck I will give this another try.

It is simply one of the best games I have ever played. Ever!

I don't think it's due to the port either, granted it did improve on a few things, the game is just slap smooth good. Just be careful not to get over-whelmed by the amount of story there.

t gets better. Each of those campaigns is the equivalent of one of the previous KotOR games. A grand adventure for each of the six character classes. Each of those campaigns is fully voiced, with multiple paths (and every dialogue choice is spoken. This is probably the largest voiceover project the games industry has ever undertaken). It’s a big, big, big game.


omg!

One can only hope they pull this off, doing updates and expansions will be interesting.

Sign here, at the bottom of this novelty death warrant.

Bonus Bara Rep for naming where 'novelty death warrants' are mentioned.

I told my wife about this, her first words were 'Bioware don't make bad games and also don't dress female characters to please 13 year olds like Blizzard have'.

I think we might both be seriously looking at this.

BUT!!!!! any mention of Jar Jar Binks and I am out. SPACED was so spot on it hurt.

Oh SHIT , just awsome

Anyway the problem with most of the new MMORPGS is that leveling realy doesn't differ that much betwen , Warhammer is a MASSIVE grind realy , fucking borring , and shure doing it once is fun and all , but doing it TWICE is big pain in the ass.

But with this , leveling while playing something as KOTOR 1/2 and with other people? no boredom garaunted , and it will be actualy FUN to level as a new class after your done with your first.

But one thing of think about , as Lore and Ciderhelm one said in podcast on tankspot : Hype is bad for a game unless you can live to the expectations , wich you most definetly won't . Well that goes for MOST companies , wich are like little insects compared to Blizzard , but Bioware? I actualy think they will deliver

Well

1. Jar Jar was born about 30,000 years after the timeframe of these games.
2. There doesn't seem to be any non-human character options yet.

Maybe that's something they'll add or maybe they'll just be companions.

I am pretty sure I would go Jedi... I hope you can choose race in addition to class, all the characters have been human so far.

I actually hope they don't bother adding in races for players. Or if they add in races the differences are mainly cosmetic (eg: Mon Calamari can swim underwater for longer). I think the races and their wildly different abilities just added another balancing problem to WoW that this new game doesn't need.

Yeah, it's kinda sad that the best Star Wars is the stuff set 4,000 years before George Lucas' "official" stuff.

Start translating honor into other languages?
Just name him Honor?

In before hundreds of

"skiewaker"
"xxdrthvaederxx"
"maswiinddoo"
"yooduh"

In all seriousness though, as much as I'd like to play a jedi, I probably wont, mainly because I'm pretty sure that 75% or more of the population will be jedi >.<
