Kind of a preview/behind the scenes of the trailer for E3.

Nice video.  What does it have to do with the game?

It's like a QQ factory in here. It's just a CG trailer of the game, most..ALL games have um.

OK, instead of meaningless cinematic flluff, how about some actual shit?

Ships look freaking great but the characters...not so much.  Like the Clone Wars animated series got gang raped by Team Fortress 2.

So I was thinking about it... wasn't the downfall of SWG the fact that they turned the game to easy mode so everyone could be a Jedi?

And that's exactly what they're doing with TOR, right? I mean, sure they justify it now with the universe's timeline... but it's more of the same, no? I suppose it will boil down to how powerful the "other" classes are, and the way skill progression and gameplay is... but I was thinking to myself "If they could just make Old SWG, but prettier, I'd be 100% on board." Then I thought "Wait... this game smacks of NEW SWG..."

Yeah. I have to agree. The style does look a helluva lot like the animated series, and the lighting seems to make everyone glowy. I'm not very impressed with the animations either. =\

I'm ok with the style of the chars, but the animations do look quite shitty. I noticed that before, though. Not enough frames or something. Doesn't look like mocap... you'd think it would be with the insane budget of this game, too.

It's funny though, 'cause they used motion capture for the trailer.

Aren't the trailers made by a team/company that just does that?

Besides Morgan's hair, not terrible.

I am not too sure about the rather standard MMO convention in play here of standing around attacking.  Also the "healer" role was being played like a cheerleader with a glow stick and didn't look like much fun.   I hope the skill sets are more varied than the videos imply.

The CoH version of support is so far the best I've seen in an MMO, some healing along with a crapload of buffing, debuffing, mezzing and attacking to keep things interesting.   I prefer that over the strict roles of most MMO's  and especially over the complete lack of roles like in Champions Online.

The UI looks good and the worlds in the origin worlds video do look good I think.

I saw an animation from ME2 (1 as well?) in the video that always sticks out as something no human would ever actually do in a conversation.  The forearm rotate while moving ones head side to side at 1:11  in the planet video.  It shows up constantly in Mass Effect.

I dunno what you're talking about... I do that all the time. (said while rotating forearm and moving head to side)

Well, now you know who the motion capture dummy was.

It's good to see that you're still able to make female characters with 20 inch waists and DD size chests. *nods* Very important aspect to any MMO.
