Mahalo: Star Wars The Old Republic: Jedi Knight

Star Wars The Old Republic: Jedi Knight

Take the beginning journey with the Jedi Knight through The Old Republic.

Watch Video

Uh... what was the point of this video? Don't Jedi Knight preview videos already cover the opening segment... and are CONCISE about it? If I wanted to see a full playthrough of the Jedi Knight segment's starting area, I'd watch the whole bloody thing on Youtube. Snipping together a bunch of the cutscenes smacks of laziness, especially if you're going to have a complete and utter lack of commentary.

i still call this video series as trolling. I WONT FALL FOR IT MAHALO!

honestly I played swtor for 2 weeks as a sorcerer and completed the game and all the operations with my pre-made guild is entirely pointless as an mmo in my opinion
it's a story driven game and it just 'ends' at endgame and there is literally no content for you any-more and simply farming credits is boring

the pvp is ok, but it fails to hold my interest long enough to reach rank 60 ( where you actually get some decent rewards )
not to mention people exploiting in illum got it for free, in about an hour..

swtor would be a nice game but ALL the multi-player systems are broken and annoying
essentially it's a single-player game with tacked on multi-player and not a true mmo

... what is this I don't even...
This appears to be 10 minutes of un-narrated Let's Play. I don't really get its point, at all. Is this a partnership with a less-interesting game video maker, like the whole GINX thing? It's not working, at least right now.

What was the point of this video exactly? A 10 minute video of Tython with little gameplay, no commentary and the dialogue scenes with half the dialogue cut out. This series is worse than I Hit It With My Axe.

Both the video's you've put up on this site have been truly pointless, completely unhelpful and uninteresting. I won't be watching any more of your videos because they're a complete waste of time.

Not entirely sure what you're going for here bud. I'm going to keep watching though, to see what this is actually about.

Not that I'm usually one coming into threads of other games with my shoes, but after watching many hours of GW2 gameplay footage, I couldn't help but to laugh in pity while watching this. It's so bad, especially fights, that it's hilarious. Insane that this game has sub fee.

What is the point of this video?

your skyrim video had a point but it was was inaccurate

this is just ten minuets of The old republic. there is no comentary, just cut scenes, and very little gameplay. there is no point to this video. i have a feeling you are trolling people

if i wanted to watch Star Wars The Old Republic videos i would on youtube and it would be less dull and pointless then this video

i gave you a second chance and you failed once again. your videos are not worth my time
in short


fun fact
this video more entertaining then both your videos combined

What is this? I get the skyrim video, I mean that was idiotic and wrong but it was at least about telling people how to play as a rogue, but this, this is moronic. Someone got paid for this?

If you were trying to convince me that Star Wars The Old Republic will be free to play within 12 months, well guess what?

You just convinced me.

Um, MaHalo? I would like to tell you this isn't YouTube. We here like it when the videos that are put here is more that a simple video of the tutorial of a video game, that has no creative content. I'll give you a couple more shots, but you are not giving a good first impression so far.

Most successful MMO launch in history--highest retention rate and highest number of paying subscribers.

That is all.

First the laughably inaccurate Skyrim Rogue video, and then this?! I'm open to seeing new regular content on here, but these Mahalo videos are obviously not working out.

I'm not exactly to sure why this video is getting a lot of shit. It seems to just be a promo video showing off the basics of the game. I've barely seen anything of this game before now, and I'm surprised as to how it plays. Wasn't aware that your character was actually given a voice in this MMO. And while I still think that MMO combat is shitty, that actually looked bearable.

And Mahalo has been around the websites longer than I think YouTube was a thing. Interesting to see them on the Escapist.

It's getting so much crap because it's only showing half the dialogue and many of the player responses are cut out.

Tython has at least 30 mins of pure dialogue even if you cut out all the combat and travel and ignore the side quest.

They cut it down to 10 mins pretty much skipping over 66% of the Tython story.

I was expecting something a bit like the last video where it tells you about the Jedi knight class and how to play it (though the last video was woefully underdeveloped). I was waiting for the narration and gameplay to kick in. As far as I can see this video is just a heavily edited playthrough with no real information or commentary on the game. It's just a big spoiler.

The phrase I'd use to describe it best is "No added value". What does it do except show us cutscenes from the game? Unless you have a class project to briefly describe the story in that level it is no use. This seems so sub-par for a site like the Escapist.

I think part of the problem is having a promo video not being outright called a promo video is kind of sneaky. The voice acted main character thing suprises me, I knew the game had voice actecd characters and I never played it, it was mentioned a lot in the hype for the game.

Really it's a question fo what was the point of this, was it to tell us how to play the Jedi Knight? As it didn't do that at all. Was it to showcase the dialogue in the Jed i Knight part of the game? Why would you do that?

Not that I particularly agree or disagree... but... citation please. Back your claim up with some sources and numbers. I'm curious.

This is just a compilation of cutscenes haphazardly slapped together. I have no clue how you think that is "promotional" material, especially since it's ten minutes of virtually nothing but dialogue.

This, I though the Skyrim one was bad, but at least it showed some work even if the makers didn't knew how to play a rogue. The new vid is... confusing, why even do it?

He is right in the lauch part as you can corroborate here; the second place goes to the unprecedented sucess Aion, who could forget such an amazing... wait what? lolz.

The highest retention... well... he can't be serious there, talking about a 3 month old MMO game retention rates is hilarious as a joke, but sad as anything else.

Now, highest number of paying suscribers? Wow... i mean if you say the almost 2 million current is higher than 10 mill + of wow or 2.5 mill + of Aion... you are using some pretty wicked maths.

Overal ToR has been sucessful, not amazingly so but not too shabby, just what one would expect from a project of that size. It will keep going and probably be roflstomped at some point by a new MMO by someone focused on the MMO part and not the RPG part.

Hmm, another pointless video by Mahalo. I hope the escapist isn't paying him for this garbage.

I think anything that "promotes" the game is considered a promo video. It's not an official promo video, but it looked like a Machinima quickly showing a taste of the basics of the game.

And it showed combat as well as dialogue.

Thanks for coming Mahalo. Please leave now. And don't let the door hit you on the way out. I don't want ass prints on our door...

Yeah, but showing the whole mission would imply that they'd be making a 30 minute video.

I'm not saying that this is good by any means, I'm merely saying that everyone here is riding the hate train because the tickets are free and all the cool kids are doing it.

Is it a little pointless? Sure

Does it deserve this level of hate? Not at all.

We're a demanding bunch. If a featured video series (which this potentially is) doesn't bring something new to the table it shouldn't be a featured video series. It's one thing for a random guy to post something like this in the reviews forum but this kind of video shouldn't have the backing of the website. Not when we already have high quality shows.

TEN MINUTES IS NOT QUICK!

Also, ANYTHING that promotes the game? By that logic, this is a perfectly fine Skyrim promo. Truly we should have all-encompassing standards like you.

1) Yeah, that's why we're pissed! If you're going to pretty much show the entire mission, show the entirely bloody mission! It's too long to be considered brief and too clipped down to be considered full exposition.

2) Oh yes, we are all just hopping on the hate bandwagon. It's not like we can be legitimately angry and disgusted with it!

Okay, first, there are no "cool kids" on this site, and second, the videos are getting hate because they're complete rubbish. If you make rubbish and show it to everyone, they're going to say it's rubbish.

If these videos are meant to be adverts for SWTOR,,then they're badly edited, and pretty low quality. Bioware should ask for their money back.

If it's meant to be a Let's Play, it should actually show more gameplay, and be less hacked to pieces in the cutscenes too.

Basically they're badly made, and a total waste of time for all concerned. I hope nobody's paying for these things.

It's not as much about getting the subscribers as it is about keeping them. And lot of people seem to be rather disappointed (for various reasons). I'd love to try it, but when I want to play game for story I sure as hell don't want to pay for it monthly >_<

The start of the Jedi Knight story puts me to sleep when I'm actually playing it... not sure why I'd want to see a badly edited version of it. Why not one of the interesting stories? Or were you just testing out the classes and left fraps on?

Not even sure why the editor thought this was a good idea.

Was this some sort of Jedi Knight story trailer?

Looks to me like he is using Copywright mathmatics for his estimation on SWTOR's subscriber base.
