TOR is the only MMO I have considered paying a monthly fee for just because KOTOR was so good. On an aside, KOTOR 2 was good as well but kind of a letdown after the first. I felt they could have built upon the first game and made a better one, but instead they made pretty much the same the game with slightly different graphics interface and a less compelling story. Still, good game but it could have been more.
I'm in an interesting position with this game as well.
I really loved KOTOR a whole ton, really changed my outlook on RPG's as a whole even. Easily one of the best games I've ever played and a major part of my formative years. I wasn't the biggest fan of KOTOR 2 either....or anything Obsidian has done actually. Just felt a lot less polished and organic...almost like officially sponsored KOTOR fanfiction, even. Would have been a hell of a mod, but as it's own thing it just doesn't pass the quality control precedent the first one set.
I would love to play something else along the same lines and a continuation of that type of game in that setting, but I just have no interest in MMOs. Never enjoyed a single one I've tried and they've never held my attention for my than a few hours. Just not my thing at all. Bioware has stated that they equate this game being a KOTOR sequel, and basically being "KOTOR 3-10" or something along those lines, so it doesn't sound like they plan on doing anything else with it for a good bit(although anything is possible if the game succeeds. Pulling for it to do well because of that)....guess I'll just have to stay happy with Mass Effect.
I think they sent out those emails to everyone on accident. I know I had a few friends freaking out trying to check their emails and stuff.
On a side note, I might stream some TOR one of these nights for a buddy of mine and you guys are more than welcome to watch too. I'm not sure what kind of performance hit I'm going to take, but let me know if you're interested.
