    Well to be fair, if you are born after 1994 I can understand you like them as they were indeed aimed at people of that age or younger.

    There were two great star wars movies:

    ESB and ANH.

    I tend to agree with this, while I can stomach AotC or most of it, the other two were just meh...

     Thirty six year old who also enjoyed the second trilogy.  I didn't let my preconceived notions get in the way of my enjoyment which is what I think made lot's of Star Wars fans feel like they didn't like the new trilogy.

    I did check you age just after posting ;)

     

    In the first movie I found it kind of lame to have Anakin being born out of nothing like Jesus Christ. And please don't lecture me on the supposedly and stupid lore behind it.

     

    In the second one and the third one it felt really boring to watch an adolescent (Anakin) complaining all the time and acting like a... stupid adolescent. So much for the supposed great Sith warrior. And also having Obiwan leaving his former friend die from his wounds in the lava wihout even ending his pain... great story bro.

     

    Did I menion the gungans?

    Sorry, but if you think what's his name (the older one) was believeable, or moderatly acceptable as Darth Vader ... idk what to tell you. 1-3 had only 2 things going for them. Darth Maul and Natalie Portman. I mean did they do more than 1 take on any scene in any of those movies? I highly doubt it. All of the acting especially considering the cast .. was stale, and forced to say the least. I fully expected Aiden to slit his wrists half way through .. such a whiny brat. So obviously aimed at 13 yo boys who don't get invited to the dance .. sorry, but I cannot identify with that and I can't imagine anyone, not even the nerds from the early 70s identifying with that.

    The original Star Wars movies were inspirational. The last 3 were made to sell toys.

    LFD tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.
    I am, usually on the sandbox .. more "hardcore" side of things, but I also do just want to have fun. So lighten up already :)

    BTW they somehow confirmed no gear dyes as avoided the question ;)

    I'm going to be waaaaaaay to busy playing the game when launch comes to worry about...

     

    This list

    WoW

    Rift

    Eve

    Biker moustaches

    or just about anything else.

     

    Not worried about anything but getting in and starting to play.

    Have a sense of humor, no need to get ALL MODDY ! :) A Simpson's quote shouldn't be worth a warning. You are lucky anyone is bothering to read this rag.

    Confirmed: for now gear dyes are out but the good new is they are not closing the door for adding it later on though.

    I spent way, way too much time playing Pazaak in the KOTOR games. In a way, I'm not really glade that it survived the cut for TOR, but that's strictly personal (because I'll be playing a bunch of Pazaak again). Multiplayer mounts sound cool as hell, so hopefully that pans out to be something other than what we've seen in the past with other MMO's.

     Now you say... yes much less childish.

     

    @Lawlmonster (nice pseudo btw) I would not be worried Pazaak if not at launch could be and I dare say would be added quite fast. And if I may, you might certainly see other SW minigames landing in TOR too at some point. You shall be addicted to them even more as they would have single and multiplayer mode too.

    ...you have been warned ;)

    Oh shit! You just blew my mind. Multiplayer Pazaak?!

     

    I'm probably going to need a help group.

    I'm not a prequel fan, I haven't even sat through ep3 in it's entirety yet, and probably never will. But I disagree, Maybe not so much in ROTJ, but in ESB and ANH he's a whiny little ****. I guess my overall point is aside from a few actors (which is also the case in the prequels) performances were horrible.

    Seems no shared storage between alts. We will have to use the old fashioned painful way: mail

     

    However appearance tabs are now wanted by BioWare

    News from the front:


    • Tournaments might be in for post launch

    • UI Addons are planned for post launch

    • No In game voice chat

    • Said it's easy to add new (humanoid?) Species post launch

    • Space ship interior/exterior customization are on the wall of crazy

    • New space ships... had a hard time talking about that.

     


    (edit) Thanks Gaou good take. I owe you one Sir ;)

    should probably clarify that it is no in game voice chat.  would be hard to play with no in game chat at all. ;)

    I didn't even read this whole thread but I can tell you the list is a joke due to the fact that it left out a legitimate LFD tool.  Why would people want card based mini-games over accessibility to endgame content is beyond me.  Or maybe that's exactly what they were planning to do while they waited for a tank to show up.  Lack of swimming, I don't really see the problem unless there was a serious demand for fighting sharks in space.

     Looking for DPS? What with all the tanks and healers it's hard to find damage dealers :)

    Added the LFG entry.

    It seems the LFG is more a chat channel than a fully fledged LFG tool.
