    Because a game in beta can't have bugs?

    Hell RIFT is 7 months old and still have bugs.

    I see a hater hating.

    I hope the new Star Wars is good. I'm not interested, but the more competition the better to keep Trion on their toes. Sadly I honestly just think the game is goofy and sad. YMMV.
    BLIZZARD: First off, it's important that everyone remembers that feedback needs to remain constructive... using profanity in your posts, no matter how strongly you may feel about something, is not appropriate.
    TRION: If something ****ing pisses someone off to the point of ****ing smashing their ****ing keyboard Hearing it in those words, helps.

    SWTRO is riding on it's name, pure and simple. I've been saying it for months, ever since I've been in closed beta. There is nothing new there.

    Bugs have little to do with why I am staying away from this title like the plague. The graphics are pathetic and the it offers NOTHING new. At least Rift looks good.

    Rift, during its beta, was insanely polished and mostly bug-free. It's the entire reason the game didn't crash and burn like Conan or Warhammer.

    The guy that made this video (see the title) is clearly making fun of it, which leads me to believe he put his quality settings on the lowest possible to make a point. A weak one.

    Don't get me wrong, I have no desire to play this game, but if someone is going to make fun of it at least give it a better environment to defend itself.

    I dont understand why people have unrealistic expectations about a game. Also people are judging a game based on someone's else opinion without having played the game from themselves. In my opinion Rift is a so so game not much to write home about. Even tho the game is not at the top of my mmo list. I have at least played the game to make that determination.

    As always the blind are leading the blind and making decisions for them. Whether or not the game is good or bad. I will play the game for myself and make my own decision. Cant be worst than Rift in my Humble opinion or it just might be. I dont know.
    Having more fun on the forums than i am in game.

    I don't know what "player dialog" is but lots of games have had companion systems (e.g. Guild Wars, many Korean FTP games, even EQ has them now). And I remember when EQ2 came out, the voice over was a big deal. I really liked the voice over in EQ2, it enhanced immersion a lot, like another environment effect. Cut scenes on the other hand...I don't think I'm ready for.

    I think these "WoW/Rift/whatever is going to die when (insert new game here)" arguments are pretty silly. People will come and go from every MMO. I would suspect that SWTOR will have quite a following for awhile--people are pretty excited. Over the six months or so after launch, I would suspect that things will even out again until the next big MMO hits. As others have said, competition is great for the market. I'm really looking forward to seeing what BioWare has to offer when I get to play it.

    I also don't understand the mindless bashing of MMOs that go on. One can play multiple MMOs yes?

    It's in games like NVN2, Baulders Gate, and the entire Fallout series. On the basic level an npc will ask you a question and you generally get 4 ways that you can respond to it with your response affecting the outcome of the rest of the situation.

    I always liked the option in the Fallout series because what you do can really change the outcome of the world.

    well, there is a logic, about MMO's dieing.
    simple, you have X gamers, games ageing/new join's so i keep it simple X amount.
    X will never become more or less, but the amount of MMO's grow, so player base get's smaller.
    as for you'r multiple MMO's, it's hard to play more then 1, let's say you have Rift + X MMO, you'r play time is only X time, so you have to split, limite's you'r progress.
    unless, you do not give a ****, about progress, then it do not matters at all

    I posted a fairly comprehensive review of the swtor from my perspective (Fairly unbiased, old gamer played many things "Hardcore" and many MMO's); it's buried in the off-topic section. Link follows, has some interesting points/insights from those of us who have tried the game. (For those interested).
