    As Tuesday draws closer, I am more and more prepared for Star Wars: The Old Republic to be released. Got my stockpile of booze and food ready, and I've been fasting for the past two weeks, and exercising a lot since I will not be moving a whole lot for the next few weeks.

    Anyone else getting it?

    Fuck, I would if I didn't dislike MMOs so much. It looks so good, but the thought of having to pay a monthly fee to play it after paying $65 to buy it..... Ah well. Maybe sometime later. I'd totally go Jedi though.

    The beta was orgasmic. Like banging an expensive, stuck up, tight bitch, getting her shitfaced on her own credit card, then cumming on her face just because you feel like a boss.

    I'm not going to go all zealous aspie and say that it's the WoW Killer, but Bioware sure does know how to make some damn good combat mechanics.

    Does it play like KOTOR? Cause the combat in that was shit.

    The combat wasn't THAT bad in KOTOR 1... the second one is understandable when where you come from.

    And the combat is very good. Jedi/Sith do not seem all that god-like, and the non-Force using classes feel like they can actually go toe-to-toe against them.

    I ran a Commando Trooper who could nuke Sith with his cannon and grenades, and finish them off with the plasma sprayer if needed.

    Kind of a moot point for me anyway. I just checked the requirements, and my shitty 4 year old computer cannot run it. Looked like it might be some fun.

    My favorite feature is that there is no auto attack, and that you have to be constantly active.

    My university is kind enough to block practically any form of online gaming, so I'll have about 4 years backlog of games by the end.
    And as my degree's in Literature, I have roughly 50 years of unemployment in which to catch up.

    Dude, just redirect your access through a proxy and mask it to, say, the school's learning portal?

    Also, the story telling for The Old Republic is phenomenal.

    Your first "dungeon," (which is called a flashpoint) as a Sith is where you take on a Republic battle cruiser with a luxury transport ship, capture a Republic General, and kill a Padawan.

    Yes, Bioware does do a good job of aping WoW's mechanics.
    SWTOR makes your "1" key cry.
    It's WoW with lightsabers.
    You're joking, right? The story is decent enough, but the dialogue/choice system is utterly pointless. Nothing you ever do matters, and if it does, it doesn't matter outside of the mission. Most of the time when you pick an option, you'll get a one sentence change in response and nothing else, and the choices are still of the "Give orphan permanent family and home" or "bumfuck orphan and then snap his neck" variety.

    You're pulling it out of context on the dialogue, and it does prove to have some fiber to it, since some items are attuned to dark/light morality.

    And I don't use my 1 key unless it's for lightning.

    I swear i saw a thread on /v/ that explained why TOR was overrated if you compare it to WoW fairly.

    Its complete and utter shit. If you ever get the money to play it, spend it on something else, the game is absolutely horrid.

    I have plenty of RAM, just a shitty processor. I play KOTOR on my laptop sometimes but if I don't have it super ventilated it will over heat and shut down in the middle of my game.
