OP  7/06/10 5:14:23 PM#1

Bioware and LucasArts have finally released the Star Wars: The Old Republic multiplayer video from last month's E3 convention in Los Angeles. The video features Dallas Dickinson providing commentary for the group of Republic heroes (all four classes) taking on Imperial Troopers and droids.

SUBJ: E3 Multiplayer Demo
 
During E3 we gave live demos of multiplayer game play in The Old Republic for the press. Now we want to share the demo with the world. This demo shows how a diverse group of players use their abilities to complement one another in battle.
 
Commander Narlock readies his troops for an Imperial assault. As he does, all four Republic classes; a Jedi Consular, Jedi Knight, Smuggler, and Trooper join together to assist in fighting off the attack. Watch as each player does his or her part to take on the enemies, and beat the Imperial Troopers and Imperial Breach Droids.

Check it all out at the link provided.

WOW with lightsabers. Doesnt bring in anything new other than the lil cut scene with cheesy dialogue. I can however see how this will be a nice diversion for the WOW crowd. Note that I am not bashing your style of play or WOW but its what it appears to be is all I am saying here.  Someone needs to come up with a new formula though.

Why come up with something new when old works, to many whiners on these forums its on every game thread and its not even trolling just people mad at something they have no control over.


Why do people act like MMOs devs owe them something (and wow has damaged the way they live there lives), i laugh every time i see it

They said it was low level stuff, i I noticed how fast the "mana" regen-ed on that consular.

Overall i like it.  the little intro kind of puts you in the mood for what's coming in the immediate future.  Gameplay, though not groundbreaking, is something familar that i can jump right into.

I think I will play it.

Also, I agree to what somebody said earlier:  No need to fix something that isn't broken.  I like the tank, dps, healer model along with aggro and threat factors.

It does not look good. 

The reason why people act like the developers owe them something is becuase those people have their wallets open.  When people are prepared to play something for a unique experiance, such as Star Wars, the most capable ones aren't looking for a cloned reskining.

This game looks poorely done with the little they've shown.   Keep in mind that the name Bio-Ware established for its self was through the staff they had working on a few previous titles.  The problem with the equation is they are using staff that were responsible for the NGE Star Wars Galaxies fiasco to develop this project.

I very much hope I'm wrong, but this game looks extremely generic with cookie-cutter classes. I want someone challenging, not a "guitar quero" button masher for mouth breathers.  :(

Oh I liked what I saw in that short vid, liked it alot =).

As for those who have to keep complaining about why devs aren't bringing us totally innovatitve games I ask you this, where were you when Chronicles of Spellborn came out? or Ryzom? thats 2 games that have tried to innovate the MMO genre and they are floundering due to lack of subscribers.

If players wanted truly innovative games the ones out now that broke the mould should be living proof of that, unfortunately they aren't because like it or not ppl enjoy playing something that is familar.

You're right, we should never develop anything new because the "old way works."  So I guess you never buy anything new, because the old way works so well, right?  Never buy a new TV, a new car, a new house, new clothing, anything?  Because the old stuff works.  Don't you understand that the devs don't owe us anything but we pay them?  WE are the reason they make the product so if they want to earn OUR money they should listen to US.

 

Of course, you are a sheep and will follow whatever is the same garbage that is pushed around no matter what.  How can someone criticize people who want innovation?  People like you make me sick, and its not about the MMO.  Its your kind of lazy attitude that really just makes me so angry, its just evident here.  Its not that I care so much about a new MMO as much as you saying people who want something new aren't "owed" anything by the dev?

 

God you are so stupid its almost incomprehensible.  That's why we have a government like the one we have today, I guess.  Its so frustrating.

 

Edit: And in regards to the MMO, its the exact same Tank and Spank formula that the guys at Bioware criticized.  They are being hypocrites and everyone turns a blind eye because they make such great SINGLE player games.  It's a shame that so many people are so blind to the reality of the situation, that even if it is a good MMO it is still just WoW in Star Wars skin with updated graphics and even less group play.  It will get subs, but certainly not any of my money.

What innovative MMO has received any funding?  Mortal Online?  Darkfall?  Ryzom is more funded than those, as is Chronicles of Spellborn, but neither of them had even a twentieth of the funding that SWTOR, LOTRO, WoW, Aion, AoC, WAR, or any of the other games have received.

 

You wanna talk about Star Wars?  These games competing for business is going to be a real Clone War.

Why come up with something new when old works

Because it clearly doesn't work. No WoW clone has succeeded despite, by all means, being a more advanced/better version of WoW. They all fell short because tapping the WoW market is something you just can't do. Most of them don't even know other MMORPGs exist. All the people that don't like MMORPGs are playing WoW already (and according to numbers, WoW is losing subs and peaked 2 years ago) so why make ANOTHER WoW clone? 

If companies never did anything new then the genre would die. I'm so sick to death of WoW that I can't play it, or any of its clones without being bored within 3 minutes. 6 years ago though, the MMORPG industry was rife with innovation, and interesting unique well made games.

QFT  People say they want something new and fresh but when a game does that it gets no subscribers. The games you mentioned I like Ryzom myself and yet it got no credit for its different path. The general gamer and even elitist want something they can play easily and have fun. That is why games are the way they are. Some call them "dumbed down" but the paying public is to blame for this. Heck I know of a great hamburger place down the street and it has way better burgers than any of the major chains.. but it isnt a bajillionaire .. why? because it doesnt sell to masses and their bland taste, it sells to the local community and gives that community what it likes.

There are many economics reasons the hamburger joint example doesn't work, and as I was typing it out I realized I was rambling.  But it just doesn't apply because there is no limit to the number of subscribers that a game could theoretically get because the more subs they get, the more money they get for new servers and they could support as many people as are in the market for an MMO.

 

If a game innovates poorly, why does that mean that we should never try anything new?  In twenty years do you want to see the same Tank and Spank games every year with just updated graphics?  It's pathetic how little these games change every time, and the only games that seem to be doing something different are TERA and Guild Wars, my two most anticipated games right now.

This is dissapointing... I expected something different about the gameplay... Something that would set it apart from standard  MMO model, but what i see is just the same old with laz00rs in it... Even the dialogue sound corny and fake and story is their supposed selling point here.

Still allot of time until release... Wel'll see what they manage to squeez out...

Did no one else find it annoying how the mon cal general was calling them "Imps" or "Imperials"???

 

Seriously theres no reason to be using episode 4 and up terms, and also the abreviation just sounded pathetic.

 

This looks more like a fan made attempt rather than a 100 million dollar project by a 5 star company.
