First of all, ME with multiplayer?  SIGN ME UP.

Secondly, watching a game and PLAYING a game are two different things.  The difference is what keeps a 6 year old game like WoW a crackfest for millions of people, even today.

Lastly, how do you mean, UMAD?  Shouldn't it be IMAD?  Seeing as how you're the one that goes to the trouble of posting a "meh-fest" on a message board?  I think Champion's Online is "meh".  You don't, and won't, see me creating a thread to its "meh-ness"...

Same ole same old except for vo which is really no big deal. I think the game engine of choice is bad, I think the art style they chose was bad because it looks too cartoony for a Star Wars game. There is nothing in this game that is going to rock your socks off.

There is plenty in this game that is going to rock my socks off.

Sure, there are a few new "bells and whistles". Like your own personal ship, companions and the lot. But that's all it is. When you get down to the meat and bones of it all, its exactly the same.

That sounds to me like the exact opposite of "exactly the same."

Oh, wait, because you have a hot bar and have to use skills and press the tab key it's exactly the same?

Gotcha...

EvE is exactly the same as UO because you have skills you need to raise and you can PvP other players.

That kind of logic?


Stop trying to argue for arguing's sake. You know what I am saying.

You take all the bells and whistles away and you're left with the exact same formula that games like World of Warcraft, Rift, Aion, and a slew of other current MMOs follow. Gear grind. Rinse and repeat. Mind you, which is not bad at all. That's not at all what I am saying.

What I'm saying its the people that like this sort of thing will love TOR.

The one's bored of grinding for gear only to grind for more gear (be it PvP or Raids), will quickly become bored.

Aside from the fully voiced over quests, TOR follows the same model of every other tab target, rinse and repeat MMO style that has become overdone and bland. Not really trying to dog SWTOR, but it is what it is.

The type of people that love this stuff will love TOR.

The ones who've grown bored of it will not like TOR (or quickly become bored).

You are only partially right.

Should do some more research and stop posting misinformation.

My "research" comes from hands on experience. NDA not allowing me to say any more. Look, I'm not bashin TOR. It is what it is. Its a fun game. People not bored of the "WoW format" will like it. People that are bored of that play style won't stick around long.

Just calling it like it is. And its just my opinion. Yours may differ. And that is completely fine.

Those new bells and whistles, make the game different than any other MMORPG on the market today. Bioware never ever said they were gonna make this new totally different game that was so far from other games that it would need a new title to define what it is. In fact, TOR is exactly waht they set it out to be. A mmorpg set in the KOTOR era of the SW lore. As for the WOW formula, not even gonna go there because that really is a lazy person's way of saying Bioware didn't make the game for me, so by default it is a WOW clone. If you're in Beta and i'm not gonna go into what i know about this game since i got banned a few times already, you know as well as i do that this game and WOW are totally different.

Yeah its just a game, the same old game that we have been playing for a long time. Its going to play just like RIFT/WOW and any other mmo. New story, new paint job and the same old point to click (yes can't wait) pretty much the same old same old. Will it have a great story, yes its a bioware game and thats one thing they are good at.

I'll check it out one day but in no hurry to jump on that bandwagon.

Everything.

The reason I still play WoW on occassion and don't play RIFT and hated AION etc. is all due to the bells and whistles.

That is my point.

You are generally dismissing everything about a game that makes it unique and for what purpose? I stand by my original statement that in doing so you are spreading misinformation.

This is MMORPG.com, the only subjective opinion is your own and then only if it doesn't support another posters view. This is also the world of us vs them, for no one can take more than one side or like more than one thing at a time.

You know, My new Mustang GT is just the same ol' crap I had with my old PT Cruiser.  Step on the gas pedal, the car speeds up, hit the brakes, it stops... steering wheel turns it.  It's got a trunk, doors, an instrument panel, a stereo.  Seats... a glove box.  It even has windows... just like my old PT...

Same old crap.  Couldn't they have done SOMETHING different?  Give it square wheels, maybe?  Instead of a steering wheel, make me press a combination of keys in order to get it to turn left, maybe?  Make me tap a sequence between the gas, brakes, and stereo power button to move forward? 

Just tired of the same old crappy car interface...

And the end game?

All you get to do is pay way too much for repairs and oil changes.

Which is the case for just about all genres. In a RTS, most  incorporate the same fundamental designs with their own twists. Most FPS the same. Most RPG's the same with subtle differences and focuses.. If we wanna get more specific and talk sub genre's it's still the same, does Saints Row play so much different than GTA? Do fighting games not always share most of the same core prinicples, with subtle nuances in how they execute combos etc?

Only in MMO gaming are the core principles of the genre brought into question and devs critcized based on using those fundamental designs.

Man you're so right. Take away the bells and whistles off a lamborghini and you basically just have a regular car.

Every day one of the most beloved RPG game makers in history takes one of the most popular and beloved IP's in modern history and turns it into a AAA MMORPG.

I tried one of those mustangs, it talked to me for five minutes before I got to drive it off the forecourt, then at the lights it went on for another 5 minutes about the need to choose to turn right or left at the junction before I could drive on.

 

When I took it back to the dealer they told me it was a groundbreaking feature in car technology and that they were marketing that as its USP!
