Joystiq posted the above video this morning with the following screed:
Hey Star Wars: The Old Republic, want to know the best way to suck the excitement out of your upcoming space opera MMORPG? Show us a bunch of still pictures not taken from the game, while a guy who sounds like Sam Elliott’s less commanding brother, Denny, tells us a super boring story about galactic diplomacy.
Seriously, if the video was capped by a young Jack Palance playing a guitar solo while he kills a bunch of guys with a lightsaber (that’s also an electric guitar), it still wouldn’t be enough to wake us from our coma. Can we all agree to leave boring in books, where it belongs?
ZOMG NEEDS MOER SPLODEY!!!11
Wow. If there were a way for Joystiq to sound less intelligent, I’m not sure what it would be. “Don’t talk about diplomacy and intrigue… I just want more asploding! WAAAAAAAHHHH!!!”

As someone who plays WAR but still kinda hangs out on WoW because all my friends are still playing it, I was rather dismayed to learn that Blizzard is nuking everyone’s honor points when the expansion ships. This has got to be the WORST thing Blizzard could do. For a lot of fence-sitters like me, this gives me one less reason to bother with WoW, anymore.
Although it’s not as far-reaching, it reminds me of the SWG New Game Enhancements. “Hey, here’s a great idea! Let’s erase everyone’s hard work! No one will be angry at all! While we’re at it, let everyone transfer from easy mode servers to PvP servers.”
This is a recipe for fail. Meanwhile, Warhammer Online is fun!
