    It really sounds good, but I am hoping it doesn't have the jerky animations from KOTOR, or it's load times from the Xbox version. The animation in KOTOR was so jumpy it was hard to tell who was hitting who at times.

    I'm looking forward to picking this up. I know I'm going to get many months out of exploring this game and trying things differently through each play through.

    I understand the concern -but this is way beyond KOTOR in execution.
    I am so ready for this game!

    Yeah and some of the videos I've downloaded definitely show this, with my only complaint being some wacky framrate at times.

    Any word on if we will be getting a demo on XBL? I am really looking forward to this game also, but from what I've heard it dips a little into FPS gameplay...which is somewhere i dont really want to go.

    yeah kinda, but you can pause the action to do skills and heal and that kinda crap, so it's still Biowareish in the Baldur's Gate fame, but since it's sci-fi you do end up doing more laser gun fighting, which the game allows you to aim for yourself. I know originally your main character could be computer controlled during firefights, but I believe that changed.

    I don't have a link, but I seem to remember Bioware stating there will be a demo but it will be post retail.

    The only problem I have is with the game's November release.
    My wife frowns on my getting myself gifts during the holiday shopping season.

    But, if I preorder the game now and pay for it in full, I have bought it before the holiday shopping season.

    Craftyness FTW!

    This is one of those games I am definitely getting, so I have been keeping away from a lot of the media just to keep it fresh. So, I would assume it would be way beyond KOTOR, but since I have avoided videos, I don't know, but even if it wasn't I would get it for the gameplay and story.

    I'll be definitely picking this game up. I've been anticipating this one ever since I first read about it. The screen shots really do no justice for the over-all scope enormous open-ended world this game set place in.
    The replay factor alone is enough to get it. There's such a vast amount of options and free-roaming that no two games would ever turn out the same. Not counting the multiple endings.
    They had a completely separate team to work on the characters/NPC facial expressions alone. So when you have a conversation with someone and decide to insult that person they will clearly show it. I'm still anxious to see how this all works out and if it will have all the options previously stated in previews.
    If it is as open as I've been lead to believe I'm sure I'll have a blast with this game.

    Oh f*ck yeah. I've been waiting for this game for a loooong time, and I'm going to get it as soon as it's released. The only Bioware game that disappointed me was Neverwinter Nights, after all.
