A few months ago at the reveal of the Star Wars: The Old Republic announcement I thought to myself, "Oh cool - finally - but I am probably not going to get to play this because I will need a PC first. After watching the video below any notion that says that I cannot play this game was thrown out of the window. I need to be playing this game on day one and this is why:
I had watched one of the many aforementioned reveal trailers and thought that it looked amazing but until this video (above) I was not sold.
As it tends to go with the MMO environments the game does not look amazing (there is a lot to render of course, I get it) but the stylized artistic aspect makes up for any lack of graphical fidelity. The voice acting - the real big thing here - also puts this game on an entirely different scale.
I want to be part of this universe as I wanted to be part of it when I played the original KOTOR. The only thing that still irks me about MMO's [as a generality] is that if I kill that captain of the ship (in the video) someone else will be able to have him alive through their own storyline. Am I right?
Still I think that the game is going to be a lot of fun and I think that I am going to have to hit up Kara on her offer to help me build a gaming PC. You can count on hearing more from me about this game as soon as I find something else out.
