    Question Are you excited for tomorrow's Bioware/LucasArts announcement

    Announcement of the announcement: http://www.worldsinmotion.biz/2008/1...epare_to_a.php

    If so why?

    I am because:

    1. Big Star Wars fan and hope it is the rumored KOTOR MMO
    2. SWG was a big fail; even before the CU and NGE.
    3. Hoping for a sci-fi sandbox game that introduces new elements and enhances the MMO genre further.
    4. Great games = competition = better future games

    Bioware is a EA whore and they need to start making more niche games.
    Game for everyone means that alot of people will enjoy it. Niche game means some people will love it. Personally I like the risk of a niche game.

    My guess, it'll be a pile of mainstream carebear crap.

    Indeed, but who knows, some niche games turn out better then expected and gain universal love.

    However, I had no idea of such announcement prior to reading the thread title, however If it is a KOTR MMO, that would be grand.

    I used to play SWG and realized what could have been if sony didn't bork it from the get go. I'm excited that a KOTOR MMO can get it right this time around, but I'm wary because they might announce it and it ends up not being sandbox at all and is just a WoW clone treadmill. I'm cautiously optimistic overall I guess.

    KOTOR was boring. I doubt it'll be able to match pre-CU SWG.

    Hope its the KOTOR MMO.

    I also hope they don't fuck it up, but I have faith in Bioware.

    Are you suggesting they make a Themepark type WoW clone based in the SW universe?

    If they pull this off...man I would have to change pants.

    A KotoR sandbox would be uber sexy. I would hire wookies to defend my city...wookies are awesome.

    Not interested.

    LucasArts let SOE turn SWG into a pile of steaming shit.

    I have absolutely no faith in their games any longer...

    Even Pre-CU, SWG had MANY problems. It was fun, but it wasn't anywhere near it's potential and was buggy as hell. I can see them making a better Star Wars MMO based on the core principles of pre-cu SWG, IF they do it right(they probably won't, but we'll see).

    God...SOE. They ruin every game they touch. I miss my planetside. Hopefully EQ 2 will have died by then so they will focus on the other 12 games they have going.
