    Gunslinger looks like it might be fun. I have to say, that was the most pathetic sith I've ever seen though. He manages to wield a dual lightsaber, but can't dodge a blaster shot? lol.

    For things to be balanced, i think a lot of people are going to be pissed that their Jedi/Sith isn't able to roll over the other classes. But in the movie lore it makes some sense-stormtoopers took out a lot of Jedis and Boba abd Jengo Fett gave Jedis a real fight. But they wont be as powerful as some people will want. The scoudral looks cool with the stealth thing and evasion.

    Ja ja. That was fun to watch.

    Still, i'm starting with a Trooper. Smuggler might be the last class I try for republic side.

    It is a nod to Bane from the "clone wars" series and a tie in with the classic western theme that seems to be fused with the smuggler for this game.

    Lol, probably all Phasers were set to stun :P

    I didnt see any blood or any impact effect on those targets  i just hope those guns can kill things...silly high-tech was real low quality

    I think they were showing us that smugglers (and others) can kill Jedi. In the movies/series it was assumed that Jedi were the uber/l33ts. I think this video is to show that they are searching for class balance.

    I was going to go smuggler but now which of Scoundrel or Gunslinger. Both looked pretty cool from the snippets

    That video was awful. Was it meant to be in game footage? He never got touched by enemy fire but one-shot evrything else.

     

    Im seriously starting to have major doubts about this game.

    It's just a promo vid, there are plenty of vids out there for actual footage. I do agree however I don't really see the point, but for those who don't read these forums etc, it's possible tsomething like this could get them interested. It's possible this marketing just isn't aimed at regular mmo gamers?

    Unable to view, really slow loading (Australia). I have 6-7mbps download speed, which is around 300-600kb/s usually, but it won't load, ah well.

  • Jimmy562Jimmy562 FlimwellPosts: 1,099Member Uncommon

    Funny when the gunslinger does what Han Solo does in Episode 4, Run in and run back out. Good video, looks very fun class to play espeically the story.

    That subtle indiana jones reference was pretty funny :P.

    I'm a dude. I do stuff.

  • DarkPonyDarkPony RotterdamPosts: 5,566Member

    Great and funny too: loved the Han Solo-esque fleeing and the gun flips and tricks. And that cover thingy looks pretty good too.

    I wonder if that body search and weapons dropping as well as the monsters looking for where the players went is in the game too.

  • DarkPonyDarkPony RotterdamPosts: 5,566Member

    Much more crisp on youtube @ 720p: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yn492QqdME

    Also the music and sound are much better quality.

         Not as uncommon as you might think.  Go talk to a long time police officer and you'll find out.  Heck just last year in NYC there was a case of two people unloading over 20 bullets INSIDE AN ELEVATOR at each other and neither one was ever hit.  If I remember the newspaper article right, one of them was even a "trained shooter" since he was a cop.  Made a mess of the elevator though.

    Haters gonna hate, easy like that. Is amazing but you can find a lot of people who really want to see this game fail, especially gw2 fanboys.

    Same applies to the swtor fanboys.

    As some one mentioned before, the video from gamertube loads slow. Not mention once the video reaches the end, it resets so you have to load it all over again if you want to replay it (yay...).


    Youtube seems to be 100% more efficient and offer better quality over all.

  • AzureProwerAzurePrower AustraliaPosts: 1,508Member Uncommon

    As for the topic. The video made me laugh at the Harrison Ford homage scenes. I knew smuggler was funny and good. But this might convince me to play it as my first republic toon.

    (Yes, I'm double posting because I can't be bothered fixing up the quotes that mess up if I edit my last post.)

         But how many of us go to the GW2 threads and do this kind of garbage so often?  I go occassionally browse them because I am mildly interested in GW2, but you'll not see me bashing everything about the game that I don't like.  Unfortunately, I see a LOT of GW2 fans doing it here REPEATEDLY.

        Here is a thought for ALL mature and immature individuals, if you don't like a game then don't hate on it's threads and instead let people with an honest interest debate over the finer points of a game and how to improve it.  It will never happen but it would be nice.

    I think this just illustrates why SW:TOR will be great, Will be a blast when they go to GM soon.
