And I’m hoping that ‘death’ arrives with SW:TOR. If even half the crap about that game is true, it’s going to be an E.T., bury-copies-in-the-desert-sized disaster. Nothing, and I mean nothing released about that game has interested me in the least, and the very basis for the game (dev-driven story) is a joke when you consider what MMOs are all about. Yes, please spend 300m+ creating a Dragon Age-like Sci-Fi game (at best) with a monthly fee that you expect me to replay over and over with a different class to hear all of the sound-bites and sure-to-be-awesome MMO-game plots and stories (that, lets be honest, they will vary only slightly, with the majority of the stuff repeating exactly like in DA:O). THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANT. Oh and Starfox-based space combat, that too! – God’s gift to blogging
While you wait for a real post about 38 studios and EAWare, I highly recommend looking up all my posts tagged with SW:TOR. I may not have been as ahead of the curve as former MMO blogger “EVE is dead in 2012” Tobold, but 2009 is a decent start right?
Also it’s cute that so many bloggers are reposting my 2010-2011 stuff, but much like cloning WoW, you are doing it wrong people.
