It does look a bit good. Until the end of the vid I was thinking "So it's Battlefield Star Wars then". The end of the vid messes with that though because I can't see how it will possibly be fair to have Luke and Vader on the battlefield. Aside from that everyone will obviously want to be Luke or Vader.

Priapismic nerdgasm ahoy!

I do hope they spit and polish all of the clunky bits shown so far, it all looks very promising.

I had the same thought. I wonder if they'll handle it like Left 4 Dead where a random person gets occasionally selected to be the bad-arse character.

Yeah maybe. I can't really think of a fairer way of deciding who gets to use the I WIN button.

Looks stunning but...

The PSP version had more maps and featues. Let that sink in for a second...

Combine the above with Disney's insatiable lust for wringing every last cent out of their franchises and I'm cynically expecting serverlulz (hello, it's EA!).

Stupid bastard I am I will probably still buy it though.

Another vid


That one definitely lacks the production values of the first one, which makes it a little more like what you'd really experience, but still massively dramatised. It just looks like a massive dogfight free for all which only has limited appeal to me.

Nasty chart there phats :(

They're making bubblegum games. They taste great at first, but they soon lose their flavour. All for the reasons phatboy posted.

Looked at Age of Conan, so much quality, but f*ck all content. Look at AOC that Funcom produced before it, okay, not pretty, but way more content and to be honest the facking implant system needed a PHD to work out, but it gave you something to constantly chew on.

EQ probably still has in vanilla form the largest map area of any MMO.

They forget that content is king.

Funny you should mention EQ. I was throwing out some old PC stuff a couple of weeks ago and happened upon some maps I'd printed out for EQ, the amount of content that game had on release was astounding.

I know later games require more assets and lets face it; the texture work on your average mobile phone game makes EQ look archaic, but just the complexity of some of the dungeons back then blows most modern MMOs out of the water.

Game design really has gone backwards in a lot of respects.

Not true actually, I saw a great game recently where you do some war, only looking down the barrel of one of your huge selection of guns. Can't wait. I hope it has Marines in.

they finally released some classic, progression servers for eq, which a few of us old BD'ers have ben playing on. not totally as it was, back in the day, as the client has moved on, in most cases for the better, but the old appeal is still there. its a bit of a nostalgia kick if im honest but its nice to play something that actually has a challenge for a change. my kids had me playing wow the other day for the first time in ages and frankly its way too easy.

Can't see myself playing this, not overly attracted to the Star Wars universe.

Having just broken the 1,000 hrs mark on BF4 I don't hold out much hope that this is going to be as good as the trailers (never are)

Same shit different game, endless balancing, tweaking, patches that only make the game worse, can't see this being any different.

I may have to not play it so that I can imagine it was an amazing game...
