Star Wars: The Old Republic First Gameplay Video


Well it's finally come! I'm really liking the fast paced combat and to think, this is just alpha! Imagine the full game :D

This may just be the first MMO that I pay monthly for...And that's saying a lot from someone who thinks the idea of paying monthly is stupid >_<

The visuals may not be amazing but remember this is an MMO! I may be able to run it smoothly but not everyone can and I want to immerse myself in a universe filled with players.

Yeah this is a nice taster, if a little repetitive on the saber battles. Nice to see a few of the force powers though and the locations are looking great=)

Yeah, while I don't disagree with a subscription based model if handled well, it does ultimately tend to hurt your wallet at certain times of the year. Personally I limit myself to one MMO at any time and usually they're not that expensive (Less than £10/month).

Still, it runs into problems when they force you to pay for extra features (I'm pointing a finger at 'There' in particular) or people who are prepared to spend more money have more powers than those that don't: talk about perpetuating inequality!

If I start an MMO subscription again, this may be the one. I think I was still shelling out for Eve when SWG came along so sadly I never did set up home in a Star Wars universe.

I'm liking this one. I'm liking this one a lot!

I'm glad. I need a pet Sith to be my slave.

We shall see how this comes along :)
