Star Wars: The Old Republic: The 20-Minute GamesCom Walkthrough

By Nick Breckon, Aug 25, 2009 7:02pm PDT Still not sure what to make of The Old Republic? After watching 20 minutes of this walkthrough from the recent GamesCom convention, you'll probably have a pretty good idea of where you stand.
Of course, The Old Republic is BioWare's upcoming Star Wars MMO. The focus with this one is on creating a more singleplayer-like experience, while still including all of the standard MMO trappings.

  • Man, after watching that video footage, it's clear the graphics and character models are cruder and less detailed than even Kotor 1, they look like Nickelodeon-cartoon characters! I can't imagine they will add more polygons and nicer skins to them before releasing the game, if they could they would've done it before Gamescom, to impress. They did manage to give all women in the game (including bridge crew) D-cups though, I guess they had to prioritize.

    Also, judging by that "Flashpoint" video, it seems they've added Grand Moffs, the imperial legions and the imperial logo about 3000 years too early, there's only supposed to be the Sith and the Republic in the time of this game. They are really messing this up.
