    Can't wait. About time we got a decent SW MMO after the NGE in SWG.

    Not excited at all for this. I just dont see how you can have a great story in a MMO framework. I would rather simply have KotOR 3. In addition, the graphics and art style looks just plain awful.

    Sounds cool, but would also like another KOTOR also.

    *queue next 15 posts about wanting a KOTOR 3 over this*

    That's what Bioware's trying to fix in the MMO genre...if you read the article.

    Yeah I read the article. I just don't see it happening while maintaining a high quality of storytelling that you would find in a single player game.

    I'm interested in it, but I would have liked a KotOR 3, or at least some follow up to what happened with Revan and the Exile. I loved Revan, so having him just up and vanish without a trace again doesn't sit well with me.

    Lets hope it has better space battles than KotOR 1... damn that was most annoying part of that game.

    Other than that if I can play as a HK droid ill be all over it

    Good idea. Split up that minescule Star Wars MMO dedicated player base between two games. That way, both can combine servers and fizzle out together a year from now. :)

    And in the process kill off one of the more popular Offline Star Wars gaming franchises. And they held off on this info and trailer as if they had a huge gem on their hands.

    Mass Effect 2, please.

    I have to admit, it does sound interesting, though I wonder just how well they can make the class/individual storylines work.

    Still would have preferred KotOR3, though. I mean, really, don't they realize by now that MMOs other then WoW are doomed to fail? :/

    Blame Sony for that. They destroyed what was a solid game with a solid playerbase in SWG. LucasArts knows SWG is the fish floating upside down in the tank, and that it's time for a new company to try their hand.

    LOTRO would like a word with you sir

    LucasArts had a lot, if not more to do with SWG's destruction.

    I'm not that interested in this new game right now. Maybe when I see it in action and learn more about it.
