  1. I decided to avoid the boards here until I read the book for myself, and I'm glad I did. I finished the book earlier this week and absolutely loved it, with a few minor complaints here and there that weren't substantial enough to ruin anything for me. As for Revan's mask Show spoiler (hidden content - requires Javascript to show) being worn as a light-sider, I actually have no problem with this. He wore the mask during the Mandalorian wars prior to turning to the dark-side. Granted, the image of Revan in the mask is absolutely associated with his time spent as a Sith Lord, but Revan did wear the mask before he was Sith. My main issue with the book was with the Emperor's ability Show spoiler (hidden content - requires Javascript to show) to suck all the life (and force) from an entire planet, as I felt this egregiously amplified power had already been dealt with in TSL (Darth Nihilus). I know there were some minor differences between the two acts but they were too similar for the reveal on Nathema to warrant the shock factor that Karpyshyn was aiming for. If we are to believe that this act was so atrocious that even Sith Lords find it appalling (Nyriss, Scourge, and other members of the council), it needs to be something we haven't seen before to fully buy into it. This book has got me even more excited to play TOR now, which was almost definitely the goal in releasing it. I hope there's more interaction with Meetra and Revan to come.
  2. It sounds like an interesting idea, but maybe not something I'd want to spend time on while playing a Star Wars game. For me it's all about the lore, so I'd ignore that part of it. It might make a great game of it's own though.
  3. I usually enjoy the FB image of the week, but this one was pretty lame.
  4. I thought they were all prisoners? I've been politely informed that this could be considered a slur in Australia - I had no idea, so I'd like to retract my statement. It was meant to be humorous - I apologize if I offended anyone with my ignorance.
  5. I think I read in an interview somewhere that player housing would be available... but not entirely sure. I have no source to validate. The rest I don't really care about... I'm new to MMOs so many of the things you listed aren't anything I'd be missing... and Pazaak was just a waste of time for me during K1 and K2.
  6. @Taak - Gentle Giant makes quality products, so I wouldn't worry about the statue being anything less than great.
  7. My son is definitely interested in playing too, but I don't know if we'll get him an account. He's only 7, and the only games he's played extensively are the Lego games on his Wii. He loves those. I'll probably let him watch me play for a bit and decide from there.
  8. Nothing revolutionary, but still fun to watch.
  9. I definitely ordered the Collector's Edition... it's fun to get excited for the game again.
  10. Done and done. Thanks for the help. I got my code immediately and registered right away. I chose the 2-day with Amazon Prime.
  11. Just got off the phone with GameStop (I ordered online). They said it would take up to 48 hrs to receive the code because they are having issues. Since tomorrow is Friday, that likely means I will receive the code next week. I'm now debating on whether or not to cancel my GameStop order and go with Amazon instead.
  12. I initially ordered from Best Buy and then canceled. My 2nd order was from GameStop. I guess I should have gone with Amazon.
  13. The biggest news for me from that update was Muzyka's quote regarding the potential release date:
  14. It's a cool looking cover, although I would have preferred the red or purple saber over the green for Revan.
  15. I'm still waiting for my pre-order code... driving me crazy.
  16. I just ordered the Collector's Edition... very exciting! I'm glad I checked the swtor site today - I usually only go on Fridays. Some locations are already sold out of the Collector's Edition.
  17. You had me at "Plus, you can convert the entire keyboard from alpha-numeric to Aurebesh!"
  18. I thought the same thing... but I probably won't resist the urge to buy anyway. Over $500 in peripherals...
  19. Razer is teaming up with BioWare/LA on some MMO gaming peripherals. Link Show spoiler (hidden content - requires Javascript to show) Show spoiler (hidden content - requires Javascript to show)
  20. So the "Return" trailer was not the trailer actually shown at E3 yesterday - instead it was a video that sort of combined all 3 trailers and had some additional back-and-forth dialogue from Satele and Malgus. If you'd like to see it click here and scroll down to "Update #3" at the bottom of the page.
  21. Another amazing trailer... Malgus has now been in all 3. In addition to the TOR novel about Malgus, I've really grown interested in this guy.
  22. The game will be done when it's done... I've learned enough about gameplay, planets, classes, etc. to satiate my desire until I actually start playing the game. I am still eager for story and lore though, and the shorts provide some of that in an aesthetically appealing way.
