I just noticed something curious about the ship used by the smuggler on SWTOR, it looks as if the Millennial Falcon (Han Solo's ship) and the Ebon Hawk (Revan's Ship) had a baby together :P
which of course only serves to make it look EVEN MORE awesome.
Man, I wish I had a steady income so I could get that game
So do I man, T_T so do I. As it is i'm only playing due to the trial, and I BADLY wish I could join for real.
But yes, I can't afford it either at the moment, since I am saving money to get a new PC, my current one has this nasty bug that randomly shuts down. (And nobody has been able to figure out why)
I want to play a smuggler so bad, #$%^ Jedi.
One thing I noticed about Star Wars is that everyone is obsessed with Jedi and Sith. Really, I think that troopers, smugglers, and anyone else in the 'verse who doesn't have to rely on the magic all-powerful Force to get things done are way more badass.
well, lets be fair man, the main thing that separated Star Wars from the BILLION other franchises set in space (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Flash Gordon, Lost in Space, ) was the LAZER SWORDS.
Its its niche, its icon, what separates it from the rest and to this day makes this franchise a unique snowflake amongst A SEA of similar franchises that came out after (Such as Stargate, Starcraft, Halo, Mass Effect, and a billion others)
So its kinda normal that people are focused on making Jedi/Sith, since they and they alone are the sole wielders of the main icon that made Star Wars what it is in the first place.
But I agree with you, its far more impressive to see someone pull off a big stunt WITH ZERO MAGIC, than seeing someone do the same due to their dominion in the force. Just look at Malcom Jace on the second SWTOR trailer. Simple soldier, no lightsaber, no magic, and he tackled 3 sith assassins like rag-dolls, charged a light-saber wielding sith lord WITH A F*bleep*KING KNIFE, and detonated a grenade in his face, and still lived to tell about it.
Speaking of non-force users giving force-users the middle finger, I love this line from the game if u play a bounty hunter:
Jedi Knight: (Tries to use their brainwashing technique to make you obey): /waves hand. You will drop you weapon now.
Bounty Hunter: (unaffected) /waves hand. You will realize just how stupid you look on those robes.
but hey man, if you can't get the retail game, at least get the trial, trust me ITS WORTH IT. its free and lets you play for 7 days. I've been playing for the past 2 days and I'm having the time of my life
:P its been ages since I've had so much fun in a game, let alone an MMO which do tend to become boring and grindy.
