Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

The Force is strong with this one.

EA has been known for its elaborate publicity stunts and trailers for BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) MMORPG. Perhaps the most notable on the publicity end being the Jedi and Sith flashmob that turned up in Times Square. And that’s not to take away from the extremely impressive CGI videos, Deceived, Hope, and The Return, put together by Blur Studios.

This week SWTOR posted a new trailer, and while it’s not as impressive as its predecessors, it’s still amusing to watch a city convert to the light or dark side of the force and make off for a showdown that will have to have its resolution in the game. It's short but an amusing little video to kill some time for today. Enjoy.

BioWare recently announced plans to provide subscribers to the MMORPG with a free copy of the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion as an added perk. You can head over and sign up to try the game for free on the SWTOR website.

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.
