Star Wars the Old Republic Preview
Yes its finally here! (well almost). I just pre-ordered my copy of Star Wars the Old Republic last week and all I have to say is.. about damn time! I have been waiting for this game to come out for over 2 years now and I was beginning to think it was going to be another Star Craft 2 launch fail (took over a decade).
Don't forget to pre-order this game asap because not only to you get some cool in game items such as a color stone (for your lightsaber) but early in game access as well. This is your chance to save your favorite character name before you have to be xShadowkillerx32. Trust me this game is going to be big and has the highest probability of being a Wow killer. (did I mention it broke pre-order records already?)
Star Wars the Old Republic is a mmorpg based in the Star Wars era thousands of years before Darth Vaders' story, when the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire waged war. Your character can be anything between a smuggler to a Sith Warrior. This game is going to seriously going to add 10 pounds to nerds everywhere, get a couple people fired, and destroy a few relationships.
I for one hope this game follows through and releases in January just a couple weeks after I graduate where I'm in that weird "just graduated but can't find a good job phase." My job til March will be kicking some Sith Lords ass and saving the digital world one planet at a time ;)
Do you guys think this game will be better than Wow? How badly do you think Blizzard is biting their nails right now hoping that this game doesn't take away from their 7 million (formerly 12 million) subscribers and dropping?
And with that I will leave you all with this video from this years Comic Con
