Lucky Gamer Enjoys SWTOR First Hand

Posted Fri, Aug 21, 2009 by Savanja

This year's Gamescom showed off many high points for MMO gamers, but this might just be one of the best! A lucky fellow over at Gamespot got a chance to demo a playable version of Star Wars: The Old Republic and has shared his first hand experience with the game.

Playing as a Sith instead of a bounty hunter this time around, we arrived on a Sith warship with another player, with the task of disciplining the captain who has defied his superior's orders. After a brief cutscene, we engaged in some multiplayer dialogue, which allowed both us and our party member to choose our own responses and then ultimately decide whether the captain should live or die. We saw the former decision played out at E3, so we decided to go against Sith convention and show mercy. The captain didn't take our kindness for granted and requested that we help him defeat some Jedi scum about to land on the ship.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
