Topic: E3 and The Old Republic

The E3 expo has begun and a new trailer for The Old Republic was released.

http://swtor.com/news/news-article/20100614_001

Good trailer, but too much action for me I must admit, and the armour is too similar to the Clone Trooper armour. The trailer ended very well.

A holorecord regarding the Jedi Civil War/events of KOTOR I was also released recently.

We're not a very big gaming forum...which is sort of surprising for me, given that I am a huge Nintendo fangirl. And yes, given what Nintendo has showed so far, I am very, very, excited!

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

Trailer is really cool. Wish I lived closer to LA. E3 seems like quite THE event for gamers indeed.

Cast iron and treadmills? Oh yes. Still sculpting me to what I really want to be, and I love it. :)

Yeah the trailers are pretty cool, but I've really only seen pre-rendered stuff when it comes to TOR so I wonder how the game will play out. Really though, I wish they just made a KOTOR 3 since I'm not interested in MMOs (not like my computer can handle any anyways)

Totally agree on both counts.

I'm a little worried that we havn't seen any game play; are they hiding it?  Or are they just waiting to build anticipation?  My experience is that the games with the best ingame looks and feel usually start bragging on it early.  The fact that we havn't seen anything of what the game actually looks like at play is unsettling to say the least.  I'm worried it's gonna be all show and no real go.

And a REAL KotOR sequel would be a GOD SEND!  I want to know what the hell happend to Revan and the Outcast!  What became of their followers!  Who joined them later!  What was really out there in the wilds of uncharted space that turned all the Jedi of the Mandalorian Wars to the Dark Side, and did Revan succeed in stoping them???

Now we've got an MMO that's just ripping off the same old story-line again - it's a damn good storyline that's worthy of being ripped off, but come on...  The Original Trilogy, then the New Trilogy, then half the major EU series, then the first KotOR comics and games.......now a thousand years late a DIFFERENT KotOR era rehash of Sith striking back and Darksiders trying to take over the entire galaxy....  It's really getting a little old honestly.  And this one rips off the armor and even the Jango look of the clones from Ep. III, as well as the Revan and Malak masks *though the role reversal is weird - the head dude is wearing the Malak mask while all the minions look like their wearing Revan masks... if that's how they've decided to be creative, the flashy movie clips might be the only cool thing about this game - hope I'm wrong, but just sayin'*

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

I completely agree with everything you said there, they're taking way too much inspiration from all the other story lines, the 'clone' troopers especially is almost going overboard with the rip offs. IIRC though TOR takes place a couple hundred years after KOTOR 2 so I'm holding on to the hope that they can fit another game into that timeframe or something (although on the Old Republic site they had that historical video series so I'm not sure if they've already covered that time period or not)

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

Actually I believe that the new MMO takes place almost a whole thousand years after KotOR II, so there's plenty of room for a KotOR III, I'm just worried nobody's planning on making it.

Here's hoping...

*EDIT*

Going back to the gameplay issue, can somebody verify if THIS is legit for me or not?  If it is, I'm not 100% sure what I think.  NOWHERE NEAR as pretty as the vids they've been feeding us, but then again did any of us expect it to be?  It actually looks more like the first KotOR games then I was expecting for some reason

*EDIT EDIT*

Here's another couple I just found.  Link II

Intro to Bountyhunter Class

Again, not nearly as flashy as the trailer vids, but really not that bad for an mmo.  Opinions?

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

i bet comic-con will have some gameplay footage.

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

I remember seeing there was a gameplay demo at E3 or something but I never got around to checking out so just now I did a quick search and it could be
this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teEJNvoyuG0 (also lol trooper has the same last name as me)

Honestly it doesn't look too bad but then again it doesn't seem very "next-gen" either if you know what I mean. Also I wouldn't worry about them not making a KOTOR 3, I'm sure it's bound to happen eventually and if the timeframe between the old republic games is that huge then that's even better. I'm curious, though,  about what kinds of things they're going to touch on in TOR from the older games particularly I'm wondering what they'll mention about Revan and the Outcast and what became of them and everything.

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

So I guess the links I posted are real..

Eh, I'm honestly not complaining a whole lot at this point.  It is an MMO after all.  If they dedicated tons of work into the visual side of it, you'd need a seriously top rated PC to handel it, and there'd be little room left for the tons of goodies normally seen in an MMO, as well as limiting the reach of the storyline.

Honestly I hope Not.  If they take the time to answer the questions of Revan here, that takes away from the posilibity of them finishing his story properly.  I mean, when you think about it, this COULD be the third installment of the trilogy.  What if these Sith ARE the faction Revan discovered in the Unknown Regions, and after waring them for who knows how long, they have finally moved onto the Republic... it's possible, but I kinda hope not.

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

TOR is only 300 years after the end of TSL, but this game is said to cover what would be a KOTOR 3,4,5,6, and so on.

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

I think you're right.  The first timeline I saw someplace said a full 1,000 years, but in one of the vids on youtube they said 300; not sure where I got the 1,000 year span.

Hopefully this will only cover a really broad overview of what the next KotOR games would be, and they'll still consider making dedicated single player sequels that explain specific stories in the franchies, like Revan, the Exile, and any new heros/villains they choose in introduce; maybe even taking inspiration from developements from the MMO. 

But unfortunately I get the feeling this is only wishful thinking....  *sigh*

LOL

That's the first time that 'no' has brought me entertainment; cool link.  And totally agree

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

Wow, just found a really cool clip on youtube.  One of those 'history' clips that BioWare has been putting out for TOR.

The Mandalorian Wars

Maybe I'd just missed it from other sources, but I'd never heard exactly what happend to Reven and Malak after they'd destroyed the Mandalorians at Malachor V; just that they'd ventured into the Unknown Regions, pointed that way by a Sith holocron or something, and discovered the Star Forge.  I'd never understood exactly what turned them to the Dark Side the rest of the way, finishing the Darkness they'd developed within themselves during the war.

This Vid claims that they discovered the Sith Empire in exile in the Unknown Regions, and where converted to their cause by the "Emperor"!  Where did this Empire come from??  Is this news to you guys or am I just way behind on this?

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

that was pretty cool. this is news to me, but they finally got an image for Revan if you didn't notice.

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

I've been watching the entire series of 'SWTOR-Time Line Entries' since posting that one, and they are very detailed, giving a total plotline leading up to the events that will be unveiled in the game.  Everybody should watch the entire series; they'll give you the whole picture of what's been transpiring in the galaxy since the first KotOR games and what to expect in the new one. 

I think this is the last of the Time Line vids, and gives even more detail on what happend to Reven:

Re: E3 and The Old Republic

I think that they should include the Exile and his buddies because that was a major event in the history of the Jedi
