E3 2011: Star Wars: The Old Republic Combines Existing Trailers To Create Larger Scale Conflict

on June 6, 2011 3:55 PM

With larger than life opening remarks, BioWare has shown us a combination of a few existing Star Wars: The Old Republic trailers to give players a sense of how large the conflict is in this upcoming MMORPG. Still, after flashy Jedi acrobatics and a cowboy bounty hunter that looked like a combination of John Wayne and Jonah Hex, not much is learned from this trailer that we were told before viewing would speak for itself.

I still don’t feel convinced that this will be a great game, or better yet, that I’m willing to put down a monthly subscription to play. Hopefully, more new information will be released about the game throughout the conference, because as of now, it’s really not possible to figure out exactly what is going on with this franchise.

He is currently abroad studying play-writing at Oxford University in the UK. Daniel likes to think of himself as a weird combination of Captain America and Hunter S Thompson minus the extensive drug use. As a result, he can often be found lifting things, fighting for justice, and being a crazy outlaw journalist on the edge who doesn't play by the rules. When he’s not writing about, reviewing, or playing games, music, and occasionally writing well-paying profiles of businessman, Daniel thinks about what exactly he'll end u doing with his life post-graduation. Daniel plans on either going to graduate school for an MFA, or more realistically, getting a day job, which he hopes is somehow involved in the gaming, comic book, or film industries.
