    Well considereing KOTOR and TOR are by BioWare, while KOTOR2 was by Obsidian...

    No wonder I found KOTOR2 to be far below expectations.

    Also doesn't help the game wasn't actually complete when released.

    Still, even with mods to fill in the missing content, KOTOR2 wasn't up to snuff compared to the original. It really shouldn't take half the game before it gets interesting.

    If you found it interesting by the half way mark, you're a better man than I am. I found myself just going from planet to planet looking to find lightsaber parts and to make a team of Jedi than anything else. No real story, no real ending, didn't even both doing a Dark Side play.

    I haven't gotten to a Dark Side play yet, but Light Side was interesting enough by halfway. I quite liked the whole 'hole in the Force' thing. And Malachor V (there was an ending with the restored content mod).

    Other than that though, quite disappointing.

    There's also a short story, The Old Republic: Smuggler's Vanguard, published in its entirety at StarWars.com. It's set during the Great Galactic War that immediately precedes the game.

    And something else I hadn't noticed before, but they seem to be releasing short biographies on the significant galactic players of The Old Republic. Names currently include Darth Maglus and Grand Moff Kilran of the Sith Empire, Mandalore and Nemro the Hutt (independents), as well as General Garza and Grand Master Satele Shan of the Republic.

    Friday's update:

    Advanced Classes Overview -- Giving first details on how your character can be customized to best fit your playstyle. This appears to be a choice that's made after you've been playing for a while and (probably) leveled up your character to a certain point. Not a ton of detail, but interesting nonetheless.

    Also:
    A feature on world building, from TOR's lead writer. Fascinating stuff, explaining the process of conceptualizing a world using Voss as his example.

    Today's news:

    NPC Companions
    Looks like we'll probably be getting a lot more clever BioWare dialogue than initially I'd expected, as they've announced companions for players. Like Han has Chewie, we'll too be able to pick up a faithful companion along the way--and the selection of companion(s?) is unique to each class in the game!

    Biography: Vette
    On the subject of Companions, they've also updated the Biographies section of their holonet to include Vette, the first revealed Companion of the Sith Warrior class.

    Advanced Class Update -- Sith Warrior
    And last but not least, the Advanced Classes update from two weeks back is finally getting a bit of expansion, as we learn more about the specializations offered to the Sith Warrior class: Marauder or Juggernaut (click the Specializations tab to have a look).

    They were also awesome enough to give us a promo video of the Sith Warrior in action on Korriban

    This indeed looks more and more promising. I might have to toss a coin between this, continuing STO subscription and EVE subscription..

    Only a small update today, part 4 of the Blood of the Empire comic.

    Disappointingly small an update, but then it's probably because TOR is going to be shown in a bit over a week at E3.

    Yesterday's updates....

    Discount codes for Star Wars gear offered at SWTOR.com.

    Much much cooler: a new entry in the galactic timeline, as narrated by Master Gnost Dural (voiced by the singular Lance Hendriksen). This is the coolest one yet IMO, as they've used this one to re-visit Revan's Jedi Civil War and add a new level of depth to it only hinted at in KOTOR and its sequel. Awesome.


    And with E3 starting up on Monday, we'll also apparently be getting daily news updates as SWTOR is one of the titles being shown this year

    I'm looking forward for news about this game from E3, but mostly hoping for Half life episode 3 news

    E3 Day 1 Revelations:
    - Every player will get their own ship to use as their base of operations
    - a new cinematic trailer entitled "Hope" (will link once it's up on swtor.com), sounds like they got Clancy Brown to narrate


    The new trailer was friggin' awesome, just as good as "Deceived"
