Will You Buy the Game? Yes Or No

When the game is released(either by internet, pc or video game) do you think you will buy Star Wars: The Old Republic?

Hell yeah, been waiting since EA spilled the beans in June or July or whenever it was. Even though we all should've known it was coming anyway.

Might not be as cartoony (probably will be though from the pics), and you can bet that there will be monthly fees. Gotta support the MMO somehow, and EA ain't gonna give up any of its cash to do it.

How else are they gonna support everything that goes into something like this?

If it's as massive as they're hyping it to be, they NEED monthly fees.

I am definitely going to buy it. I currently play World of Warcraft so no way I can play both, I plan to try this for a month or two and if I like it enough, quit WoW.

Yes.

Its going to completly erradicate Star Wars Galaxies from the face of the earth, and Sony will finally get there just desserts.

They must be in a panic over there.

Uncertain. There are various attractions and put-offs in this project for me.

Attractions:
-Finally, a new game...;
-may be interesting to run around as a SW character with fellow LF patrons;
-Some interesting aspects - such as character creation, and the option to be something other than sabre-twirler.

Put-offs:
-Inevitable monthly fee (although this will be dependent upon the figure released);
-Story concerns - I find it hard to imagine how it will be properly implemented;
-24hr players that advance quickly - I know there is some name for this, but I have heard others who have complained that getting constantly squashed by high-level characters when one has just joined can be off-putting.

Once I read more (and see more about it, I will be more prepared to make a decision. However, system requirements will be another grave concern.

They say that the MMO broke alot of boundries that they wouldn't have been able to do with KOTOR 3. They said that it was like making KOTOR3-12. Im excited. I've been waiting for a New MMO, since me quiting Star Wars Galaxies.

It's going to be fun, If they keep their promise with the storyline, choices and don't just make it a WoW-clone, I'm ****ing sick of WoW clones. WoW is **** it's popularity is damaging other MMOs because devolopers can cash in easy using the WoW forumula.

Oh and Going to Join the Sith Empire, become a sith lord! and wipe the pathetic jedi from the face of the galaxy....... :P

They said the wait is over. What were they talking about?

They certainly didn't mean the wait for the next KOTOR because this in not it! This is NOT it!

If Lucasarts seeks to kill off KOTOR with this, I will not feed their pocketbooks. When KOTOR III comes out, THEN the wait is over.

I sure cannot wait.

I think its silly to totally disregard a game because its not "KotOR 3". It being made by bioware is a HUGE++++. Just because it is an MMO means the game cannot be fun?

I do think it is a little...weird, to already dislike a Star Wars game because its not KotOR3. I understand you may not like OTHER mmos...

Besides, its a period of KotOR. This excites me MUCH more than a single player game that is totally restricted by being offline at all times.

I think Darth_Yuthura.

I mean, they spread rumors saying it was a new Kotor project. But its not. Its years later, with a new storyline. What happen hundreds of years back isn't gonna be very important to the story obviously.
Revan's time is like ancient history.

I'll admit, the art that they've released really makes the good look very advanced. But thats not what Kotor was. It was of the ancient times.

This story seems to bring the old times to the end.

The wait will not be over until Kotor III is released! Until Revan is back and we have those questions she asked during Kotor II resolved.

I'll be waiting and patiently watching how this one fares story and gameplay-wise. Will it be a good experience to a KotOR player expecting a KotOR-like playthrough? If the right source answers 'yes', then monthly fee or not, I'll be the first on the queue to buy/download this thing, or stealing a copy, whichever is faster.

Since dreaming is still free.

Putting my head back between my shoulders, the thought that no matter how hard you try, you can't crush the Republic or the Empire, or reduce the Jedi/Sith Orders to ashes is... *sigh*.

Sorry but it seems to me that LucasArts commissioned this game in the stead of KotOR 3. I watched the Gamespot video for TOR and this is what Tom Nichols had to say:
Quote:
"There are a lot of reasons why we decided not to do KotOR 3 and why we decided to do this as an MMO instead.
First of all I think that the storytelling that was behind the KotOR franchise is very applicable to doing an MMO so there's no reason to just limit it to a single player experience. There is a lot of potential in opening it up to the MMO wide audience experience."
Tom Nichols, LucasArts Executive Producer
Prior to today's announcement I really thought they wouldn't be positioning this as a direct successor to KotOR and I have mixed feelings about this but it seems like KotOR 3 either isn't going to happen or isn't going to happen any time in the foreseeable future.

Exactly! The fact that this is of that era, but removes from the contents of the first two games, this is NOT to be regarded as KOTOR, but it is portrayed that way.

I have NO issue with the gameplay, but the storyline. Set this game to 5-20 years after the original KOTOR and I'll be on it no matter what. I want lucasarts to realize that they must correct the timeline to the plot before they worry about gameplay.

^ The point you're forgetting is that this is TOR, not KotOR. They're not obliged to continue the story.

Considering they've already written the story out completely, started on the game, and have announced it...

Yes, 300 years is awhile. However, we still know little details about the story beyond that, and it could knit itself together nicely. The time gap gives them time to separate characters and possibly remove the two Mary Sue characters that K1 and TSL created.

Eh.. though perhaps it is still too early to say, it looks promising to me. As long as the monthly pay is not too steep, I will most likely buy it.

Yeah, I'll definitely try this. Star Wars is always good for me and made by BioWare will be even better!

I'm really impressed my the concept/story and all, so I'll give this one a shot when it comes out.

Im not sure if I will be buying this, as cool as it could end up being...

I dont like monthly fees simply because I am not a regular player of anything, let alone time intensive games.

plus, Im an antisocial bugger, I like those MMOs where you can get AI characters to join your posse and wreak havoc.(like Guild wars).

...They dont whine, always turn up, and dont develop secret crushes on you(or vice versa) Also, given my location and time zone, its unlikely Id meet up with most of the folk from around here anyway...bleh

Well, from what we've heard they claim there will be NPC companions following you in the MMO sort of GW style.

The extent to that, however, is still unknown.

I said yes because I really don't see how I'll be able to resist this game, but I really don't want to become addicted to another mmo like I did with WoW. =/

Yeah, that's one reason I know I won't get it. I'm not a serious gamer. I don't like spending tons of hours a day in front of a screen. I get pretty busy with working on my projects that I enjoy doing way more then video games.

I like getting to a game when I feel like it. Not to fit in with a bunch of other peoples scheduels. Especially with the time differences.

Personally, if it clones Warcraft - then I probably won't be buying it. I find the current batch of MMOs just so uninspiring. The one thing that helped kill off Galaxies - before NGE - is the lack of content. Content is king!

I'll buy it as long as it comes out for Mac. If not, then well I will kind-of have to buy an intel Mac (hopefully a new Macbook Pro, if they come out with one) and then buy Crossover and then buy the game...But I still like the idea of a new game especially an MMO

That's the best thing they could have done. We get away from the Revan fanwankery and we also don't have l33t d00ds mucking up the original storylines. I'm all for the new sandbox. And frankly I would have been for that if it had been SP as well.

QFE

I don't want to have to rely on teaming up with others to advance my character and experience the content. I want to be able to play on my own terms for the most part and may not be able to work out a time to go raiding with people I want to actually raid with.
