My Thoughts on SWTOR Intro Cinematic

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on June 7, 2011 by theerivs

Syp gave his thoughts, I thought I would give mine…cause I’m more evil minded compared to that goody two shoes, but I’ll go the extra mile and give 9

9 Thoughts of the Intro Cinematic.

1. That Smuggler look like Chuck Norris a little or is it just me.

2. Giving bad ass stuff to other classes might not flood the Jedi/Sith camps so much such as duel wielding smugglers, or big gatling gun troopers.

3. Empire Classes not as represented here as much as Republic Side.

4. I don’t care lightsaber fights are the mother fucking bomb.

5. Had some humor in it, which is always good.

6. I never did like how ships translate out of warp in Star Wars, it’s like they step on the brakes super fast. I like how Warhammer 40k ships do it, they emerge from a wormhole. Thats just me being uber nerd picky though.

7. Twi’leks not that sexy, those two dangly things from the head freak me out…just saying.

8. It’s interesting as we see this story evolve kind of in reverse, time line wise I think it goes, Cinematic, Hope, then Decieved, and we see Malgus ascend to power in the Cinematic.

9. I don’t want to spoil the end of the trailer for you, but “Welcome Home Master”  yeah I got a huge boner there at the end.

Overall a pretty decent trailer, that feeds my hype monster…real bad.



Don’t Believe the Hype!

So E3 is here, and besides all the oodles of hardware stuff, the games is what I’m interested in…

I have 3 grades of things when something interests me. Some of these games are for the console only, and some of these games look so good, I might just have to invest in a new console. 

I might check it out….

Hunters Forge – It looks interesting, will it hold my interest. I don’t know.

Halo:Reach – Ok I’m not a huge FPS guy, but once in awhile I do like to Frag a mofo. No scream pleases me more then the girlish scream of a enraged 13 yr old boy over XBOX live.

Fable 3 – I really like games that make you decide morale things….of course I always choose the bad side.

Transformers – I am weary of games that are based off franchises like this. Lets just say I still am seething over the Barbie Adventures mess.

Things that really perked “things” up –

APB – I don’t know just a virtual game of Cops and Robbers appeals to me, or is it the chicks in hockey masks. Maybe a little of both.

DC Online – Ok I’m not a big hero genre fan, but this really had me interested, I didn’t like the cel-shaded stuff of Champions, will I play this I might.

Deus Ex Human Revolution – Yeah it’s Deus Ex, old school awesomeness probably gonna have to check it out.

Yeah there’s a tent in my pants-

There’s a few franchises I’m a huge sucker for, and I’ll probably buy the game regardless, then come to find out it’s crap…I’m looking at you STO. So for these games hop on board my hype train, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride. ..

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – The next biggest thing, I dunno, I don’t care.  Yeah I’m there. Playing a Sith.

Star Wars: Force Unleashed II – Man I watched this trailer, and it was better then Viagra. The hate was delicious.

So ok these next two games are based in the Warhammer 40k Universe, and since I have a tattoo of a Chaos Space Marine unit from the game, do ya think I’m gonna buy these games?  Let me rephrase the question…Does a frog have a water tight ass?  Yes, Yes it does.

Warhammer 40k Online – Looks like this is some gameplay footage too. Which side am I on? Chaos!

Space Marine – Any excuse to chop shit up with a chainsword.

So there are some of my favs, seems like this year alot of revival is coming back from Donkey Kong, to Twisted Metal. Which is cool to an old fart like me, but nostalgia will only take a game so far. These days the game has to be on point too. Of course the 800lb Gorilla is coming, the expansion for World of Warcraft.  With so much good stuff coming up, I hope for two things, that it isn’t all hype, and I get some more time to play all this stuff.

Remember how I opined about AvP 2, and the good ole day. Look what was shown at E3

Hope they don’t mess it up….

I’m getting goose bumps just thinking of ripping someones head off! Can Sega pull it off?
