    only MMO that ever peeked my interest is this new Old Republic game....now that shit looks crack.......loved KOTOR so this shit looks crazy to me

    wish they had a non monthly pay single player though, since i don't really care about playing online

    yeah, wow rips off from everything.. it's no secret. if there's a game in competition with a certain system or mechanic that sounds good, blizzard will rip it off. it's already happened.

    that being said.. the old republic plays exactly like wow.. you won't know until you try it

    both games, that is

    Probably, but from what i've read it has a lot of new takes on the combat system while staying true to the MMO format. (of course i wouldn't know first hand cause i don't play them)

    plus bioware story telling >>>>>>>>>

    all Voice Over too.......Did you ever play KOTOR? One of the best games ever made

    yes well you could say every mmo has a new take on its combat system but stays true to the mmo foramt because 'the mmo format' is such a vague term and really doesn't encompass anything besides 'grind to make your character stronger"

    that being said, when i talk about the game being the same, it's the combat too. if you've played 2-3 differnet classes in wow then you'll pretty much feel very familiar with star wars.

    the 'everything has a voiceover' buzz is really just pointless buzz that won't help the game at all, especially if it falls to negative criticism. they're spending so much money on recording so much voice over garbage, paying top tier voice actors to do so and they haven't even had their game go gold or take off yet. a lot of people are afraid that the money going into that game isn't going where it should be needed (content, quality control, developer thinktank) instead of stuff like voicing over every single line in the game. i mean, i don't think i've ever played a game and said "well, this was okay" or "this was good", then had to add "but the fact that everything was voiced over just spiraled it into another league altogether!".

    i played both kotors, not really my style (in terms of gameplay) but it was a good game.

    i wouldn't worry about bioware wasting time on voice acting and not on gameplay

    they make the best Rpg's around and i'm sure the quality will translate to the MMORPG's as well

    also, it's worth noting that making a good rpg and MAINTAINING an mmorpg well are two very different dances..
