Newbie (1/14)



  1. Yes, the "this doesn't look like kotor era" kept running through my head as well. Most particularly this was at the beginning when we saw the Titan-class cruisers flying over Alderan. Yeah, those weren't built then. Hey, it's not the end of my world if they don't get the canon right, as long as the game is fun and enjoyable I'm not going to have an aneurysm over anything. But that's still no excuse to be stupid.
  2. Maybe they should rename this video "Crash", because that's what it did to TOR's website. You know, I always find this ridiculous, they build up huge hype, only to not have enough servers to take the hit when the magic number hits.
  3. And people wonder why it's so easy to be bigoted towards Islam and Muslims. If this was the exception, yeah, great, whatever, but nobody can argue that this kind of situation is pretty much the rule in many Islam-dominated countries.
  4. Oh there'll be one I'm sure.
  5. Yeah, and they're gonna be pretty unpopular pretty quick if we have to delete characters we've worked real hard at and enjoy just to make a new one.
  6. It would make sense, if there are 8 unique classes, it would give us room t play one of each, and then replay our top two. Of course it also depends on how servers are done.
  7. So, this game is going to advertise as: "It's like WoW and Guild Wars combined with added alien space babes!"
  8. Eh, Hoth, *shrug*, honestly, most of these worlds are a bit boring, but what makes a world interesting isn't so much what you're looking at but what you'll be doing there.
  9. Non-human, but that depends on what races are available, what colors you can pick from, and what physical adjustments you can do to them. If we're all just gonna be cookie-cutter shapes then that's disappointing but not a huge deal. Still, twi'leks have been done to death but I'm sure I'll make one, though assuming we get some other options, I'll give 'em all a try. If we get Togruta though as I think we will, that'll be my first one.
  10. Wouldn't be surprising, but I have to say, I'm enjoying this comic more than the previous one by quite a bit.
  11. ^THIS times OVER 9000!!! Really guys, you're setting us up for a fairly original game and what we're looking at is a WoW clone with lightsabers? Good job on the originality there, maybe you should just call this game: World of Warcraft: The Old Republic instead?
  12. Yeah, but we're America. We don't do anything "just enough". I mean, we've got a giant oil leak, a giant cap that failed, so we need a giant nuke. I mean, 50kilotons at the least. More if we have one of those sitting around.
  13. That's not entirely true. If a person or people don't know freedom, then sometimes forcing people out of their ruts is necessary. I don't like saying it's "their culture" because you can't be sure of that. It may be the culture they come from, the culture they are surrounded by, the culture they were forced into. But you can't say that it's theirs in that THEY want it to be that way. Just because I'm an American does not mean I approve of all aspects of American culture, just as being Japanese, Muslim, German or British mean you want to take part in a specific aspect or any aspect of a culture.
  14. Number of wars vs purported purpose of wars is an important discerning factor. If I go around saying "we should kill all the jews", then even if I have never been in or started a war, I will(and rightly so) be perceived as a greater threat than someone who goes around saying "if you try something stupid we'll beat you up." Oh boy, the, "they used them, they're bad!" argument. Really haven't we gotten over this one yet? Everyone who's ever built a nuclear weapon has "used" it. To demonstrate their power, to terrorize their enemy, to spread fear and ensure their power, even if they didn't use it directly upon people. Far worse things have been done with far smaller bombs, and even without bombs at all. Should we say that Germany shouldn't be allowed to have cars because they gassed Jews with them? Should we say that the Japanese shouldn't be able to have children because they taught them to sacrifice their lives for their country? Of course not, you would find these quite silly arguments. Nuclear bombs are weapons, and they are the best weapons when used as a threat, not actually dropped. If we use the threat of nuclear warfare as our defining factor in who has "used" a nuclear weapon, then we should be looking as Israel, Iran, China, Russia, France, the UK, the US, and others. The argument against the US having nukes is that they used them when people didn't know better. They used them when they were desperate to end an unforseeably long war faster. The argument against Iran having them is their apparent propensity to use them against civilian targets when we DO know better. Learning that something is wrong after doing it is great, even though you still did wrong. Doing something you know is wrong anyway, with no regard for it being wrong, is the sign of a psychopath. Two things, obviously, should come to mind when making bad comparasons. 1: date. This cleric's announcement was new, in present day. Regardless of how far Islamic society has progressed or regressed since the 1600s, the kind of ignorance and social propaganda required to claim that promiscuious women cause earthquakes(both social and earthly), is just stupid. That image was taken sometime back in the 1960's. In 40 years we have curbed what was often rampant racism, to only minor aspects, while in Islam, rampant radicalism has only grown. second is of course, scale. The KKK are not, and never(save maybe very early in their founding) have been an organization or group of persons held in high esteem. While clerics belong to a select group of trusted religious leaders. Few people look to the KKK for their moral compass. Lots of people look to what clerics say for their moral compass. That said there is of course, plenty of stupidity to go around, many middle eastern nations simply seem to have excess amounts at present. Thank you both for perpetuating the same bigotry and racism that you are arguing against. AGH! there is so much bad logic to reply too.
  15. Are you a victim? If yes, feel free to be concerned for others who have suffered through what you have. If no, then let them decide how best to deal with their suffering. Your argument is one that has been used for ages with male-female rape. "Don't take them to trial because it'll just hurt them more." Nobody HAS to testify in court, we have the 5th Amendment for a reason, and international courts have similar rules as well. The victims are the ones who should decide if they want to talk about their ordeal or not.
