Short, yet sweet opinion piece. Puts the emphasis on how revolutionary SWTOR can be when looking at the bigger picture.

Not that sweet of an opinion butt kissing muffin!

But, I am interested in this game none the less.

"butt kissing muffin" ?

...Well, okay :P. Just honestly thought it well on the points against the detractors just calling it a WoW clone.

gw4k2378d ago

Nothing wrong with muffins folks. They can be quite good!

Thanks for the compliment.

I understand that SWTOR is not going to be the Jesus of the MMO genre, but to say that SWTOR has no innovation, it is over-hyped, and it is just WoW in a Star Wars skin is a serious diservice to what SWTOR brings to the table.

In terms of mechanics, yeah, SWTOR does not innovate and it IS a WoW in SW skin. However in terms of the broader perspective, the emphasis of story + fully voice overs = MMO innovation in terms of how people approach, play, and even develop MMOs going forward.

I agree that it's about damn time a fully voiced MMO reaches the world - Hopefully each and every voice actor is doing an incredible job.

Originally i thought you were just butt kissing but this comment i agree with completely. Cause when i see swtor gameplay its very un inspring especially the hutball pvp vids. But the story voice actin driven quests are a very good thing an making choices is great for an mmorg.

I will be buyin swtor an the new wow xpac. Tho Guild Wars 2 is the next gen mmo im truly waitin for.

So essentially, it's a better version of WoW.

ECM0NEY2378d ago (Edited 2378d ago )

A WoW with story and the force!

I still have it pre ordered, but i have a feeling that ill be back on DCUO till the Vampire The Masquerade MMO comes out by CCP.

Just like KOTOR was a better version of Neverwinter Nights and look how much of an impact KOTOR had on the RPG genre....especially the WRPG genre.
