Star Wars The Old Republic

This is what happens when you release your entire intro. Graham and Paul get ahold of it.

Why must every single Star Wars game reuse the same John Williams scores from the movies? There's a million Star Wars games already and only 8 hours of music between them.

hot boxing a spaceship?
that would be pretty kick ass!
hilarious episode.

What was the point of that in an MMO? KOTOR 3 sure but why in an MMO? Surely a movie style text crawl could of done the job for $5,000,000 less.

Ha it's so true about the double light saber. I guess they must of got sick of them or no longer in fashion/ style during episodes 4-6.

Great episode.

Off topic: I hate how these movies have become one giant cliche. Flippy spinny lightsaber battle. I'm relatively sure that same trooper without the helmet was in the second old republic trailer we saw, with the same gatling laser type gun. And, why are all the Jedi only one single character?

Excellent Unskippable! (But man what a weak trailer, it was like a derivative fanfic, ouch.)

"yeah it's like a redshirt changing into a cardigan!"

I have no idea why but I LOVE that line.

Wow. I never really thought about that before. Now I see how sad it really is.

I have to say, I didn't expect you to be brimming over with complaints about the hat Graham.

There's a TV show in the pipeline every week the same tired cliche

Ha, kind of neat that you're able to do this for a game that doesn't even have a release date yet.

The cowboy hat and duster really were a bit over-the-top, but they made non-han-solo just so damn cool I can let it slid.

While that cinematic may have been terribly cliche and completely wasted on an MMO, that was still pretty awesome. Three lightsabers for the ridiculous win, followed shortly after by a loss because you can't beat a Sith trainee. Everyone knows the master is the weak one.

That was hilarious guys. The commentary was some of the best I've heard you do. On a serious note though, the cost of this game was nowhere near the 200 million expressed by EA Louse (who was summarily proved to be a hoax). Just a tidbit so your not spreading disingenuous info.

...dissing SW about a space cowboy, when the Jedi is more than a copy of a samurai...we've passed the whole "this is a space version of something" way long ago. :)

Still cool episode, the game will more than likely crash and burn (not actually in numbers, but just in a sense that it's questionable wheter it'll be profitable), if only they made a movie like this and released it, I think it would've saved everybody a whole heap of trouble.

Okay, does it make sense to anyone that a man who has trained his whole life in the art of the single lightsaber can suddenly DUAL WIELD with a DOUBLE SIDED LIGHTSABER.

Cause that doesn't make a ton of sense to me.

But yeah, great episode, as usual.

What's even sadder is that 8 hours is being very generous. Could probably listen to all of it on a quick plane ride.

OT: Also loved the cardigan line. And yeah, those were my thoughts when I first saw this trailer: Isn't this an MMO? What is the point of this?

If you chop of your ear once, you get careful quickly.

As much as I love Star Wars... this is REALLY goofy.

Yes, yes, A New Hope is pretty much George Lucas going all fanboy on Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.

OT: Force Burn.
When you want to retort something so scorching that you must channel the life energy of the universe to do so effectively.

This:

what I want to see just once is someone with a double lightsaber messing up the spin and cutting themselves in half. I trained to use a bo-staff for five years, and I can't remember the number of incidents I saw involving a nutshot with those things. they must lose half their padawan that way.

"That's why you don't bring a double lightsaber to a three lightsaber fight"

This bit had me in hysterics.

Pfft, of course there is a reason to be wearing a cowbow hat, and duster in space.
It has good stats.
Cowbow hat is +35 to ranged accuracy, and the Duster raises Crit chance by 25%!
And don't get me started on those boots!

"get off my space lawn you rebels"

I see what ya did there, and it was awesome.

and I donīt know about you, but to me being called Space Marston is a quality stamp of awesome ^^

... because they are the same people? They tend to look the same as themselves when that's the case.

OT: Hilarious, I think this episode is my new favourite.

Thank you for this, I really really hated that trailer.

Liked the Great Darkness comments...
"Mike Patton? Here?"
"Oh, you mean that black stuff? No, it's called space."

Naturality:
"That's why you don't bring a double lightsaber to a three lightsaber fight"

Yeah, but remember... triple-bladed lightsabers aren't cool anymore.

Maybe we DO need circular lightsabers after all...as stupid as they sound.

I'm not going to play it, I'm not going to follow any storylines from it, and generally I'm bored with Star Wars ever since Legacy of the Force held the likable characters down and forcefed them George Lucas home brand stupid pie, but this still looks pretty cool.

Then again, it's Star Wars, all of the lightsaber fights look cool, the gamble is whether the story around them will be any good, and Han Solo, Cowboy edition just isn't doing it for me. However, the concept of having a Republic Trooper, a Smuggler, and a Jedi Apprentice who just lost her master all on one ship is one of the better beginnings for a SW story I've seen in a while.

Of course, that it basically is Star Wars Episode IV probably takes some of that cool away. When the trooper and Jedi went for the gun turret I just had to shake my head at how badly they were ripping off the original.

Why is everyone ratting on this cutscene? It was awesome.

I may be a fanboy, but a fanboy who knows when stuff is good or crap. Like TFU 1 and 2 were crap, but this, this is awesome.

John Dimaggio is on par with Harrison Ford, let it be said.

I dunno, I thought Darth Whatshisnuts had a pretty sweet opening sequence in TFU2

psivamp:
Yes, yes, A New Hope is pretty much George Lucas going all fanboy on Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.

I'd say it's more Hidden Fortress than Seven Samurai.

Dear god... That intro was EXACTLY that one scene from Episode 4.

Has ANYTHING good come out of Star Wars since the original trilogy?

ANYA WE'VE GOT HALF THE SITH FLEET CHASING US, DROP THE HAMMER

Ohhhh wait.
