    Pretty damn cool updates today!

    New playable species announced, clink link to read more

    And a new Master Gnost-Dural (Lance Hendriksen!) holorecord, about the Mandalorian Wars! Not a whole lot new here for those of us who've played the KOTOR games, but it's damn cool nonetheless



    I wonder if there'll end up being a 'collected media' disc/download, of all TOR-related webcomics and holorecords? That'd be pretty neat. Would make cool 'collectors edition' loot

    So, that adds Sith Pureblood (Ragnos, Naga Sadow), Miraluka (Visas' race, right?), Mirialans (Luminara Unduli), and Zabrak (Darth Maul) to the list of playable species. Pretty neat, but I hope they include some non-humanoid species too, like Rodian or Trandoshan.
    Mia: Don't you hate that?
    Vincent: Hate what?
    Mia: Uncomfortable silences. Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?
    Vincent: I don't know. That's a good question.
    Mia: That's when you know you've found somebody really special: you can just shut the f*** up for a minute and comfortably share silence.

    Today's updates include....

    Issue #9 of the Blood of the Empire webcomic.

    and

    The Jedi Knight advanced classes revealed: Guardian and Sentinel (click the Specialization button)! Looks like the Sentinel will be the dual saber class Accompanying this is a new Jedi Knight class trailer, with in-game footage.

    And finally a new character bio!

    The space combat seems like a rail shooter. That seems to be what the general complaint is.

    I was hoping it would be more open. But I guess a short clip doesn't show much.

    I thought it looked a lot like Rogue Squadron combat, personally.

    Ooh....the update today is about starships! Only two so far (click them for more details including pictures and video), but looks like there's plenty more to come

    And also a bit older, but I still think worth posting: a developer dispatch on the music of TOR

    .... ummm.. isn't Star wars old republic predating the original trilogy by couple millennia? If so, why come the Sienar's design language exists in that sith empire vessel?

    The Sienar company was founded 15+ millennia BBY, according to the Wookieepedia. They cite Exile and Rogue Planet as their sources. Perhaps in this period, Sienar is simply selling to the highest bidder.

    I'm disappointed with the Fury. It's like an oversized TIE-Fighter. It's something I would have expected to see the Empire use during the movies. To make it worse, look at the silhouette under it, it's an oddly shaped Millennium Falcon. I was hoping for a bit more originality, but then again, I think people would complain if it didn't look familiar.

    I still can't believe they are going with a single player space experience in a massively multiplayer online role playing game.

    Its just sloppy and wreaks of half assed-ness.

    Remember, this isn't EVE online.

    But it is strange, since you get to have your own ship and stuff correct?

    You should read up on the war zones

    The space battles in SWG never really picked up. Then again, PVP in general was pretty rare in that game.

    New video from the PAX expo, Mysteries of Knights of the Old Republic.

    Looks very very cool, some very intriguing story tease and some good footage of in-game action. Enjoy!

    Very nice indeed. I hope they finally explain what happened to "him". Was great seeing the extra character at the end. Makes sense he'd be there guarding everything.
