I'm gonna wait for the specs to come out for TOR. Don't wanna pre-order it only to find out that my comp can't handle it.
Anyways which class are you guys gonna start with?
SW: KotOR being one of my favourite games ever, I will most likely end up getting this game, but I would have been infinitely happier if they just made a KotOR 3. Especially since KotOR 2 was made by Obsidian and was a buggy, unfinished and generally worse than the original game.
I also used to think that Bioware could not fail, but after Dragon Age 2 I kind of feel skeptic about the company now. Not saying that I won't buy their games, I will get ME3 and I think it will be great, same for TOR, but a company that turns DA:O into DA2 does send negative signals.From what I've heard and read I don't think you'll be disappointed content-wise in TOR. Each of the 8 classes have their own unique story, quests, and companions. They've also stated there is no overlap (even at high levels) between the republic and the sith quests (meaning you can just create a character on the other side and get completely different experience).
I was also disappointed in the last half of KotOR 2. It is very easy to tell it was horribly rushed toward the end with huge sections of the plot just missing (Atton anyone?). But we have Bioware on the case again for The Old Republic. If any company can make TOR live up to the hype and expectations, it is Bioware. REALLY REALLY glad they are in charge of development. Their Dragon Age and Mass Effect 1 & 2 are some of my favorite games from recent years.
Yeah I remember reading about that as well. The most expensive part, not sure I remember the "they will go out of business if TOR doesn't sell" part. Though that is unlikely. Even though TOR has to compete with a game as gargantuan as WOW, I think it will sell anyway.I heard somewhere that the development of this game has been the most expensive in history, and they'll likely go out of business of this doesn't sell well. Uh oh. (and no, I don't have a source. I forgot where I read it)
