    Epic SW vid, gets me excited for SWTOR

    Came across this epic video on youtube earlier today...even though it has no TOR footage, I think its a cool SW video and gets me excited to play TOR.




    Credit goes to CommanderCourage for posting (and maybe making idk) the video. Make sure your speakers are up....its kinda quite in the beginning.

    A timeline type video does not get me pumped to play a video game set long before the time represented in the video.

    But I still want to play the game.
    I don't argue to be right, I argue to be proven wrong. Because I'm aware that the collective intelligence of the community likely has more to offer to me by enlightening me, than I do to an individual by "winning" an argument with them.

    This is pretty good. It actually makes the prequels look pretty enjoyable. It doesn't get me pumped for TOR, sadly.

    It was well made, except for the footage of episodes 1-3, which were just garbage. Also I don't see what this has to do with Swtor.
    It's like crossing an intersection. There's shit going on all over the place and you don't panic and act like an idiot then do you?

    Pretty much this.

    If Lucas's Star Wars universe was the main reason I wanted to play TOR, I'd have also played SWG back in the day. I didn't.

    I'm a KoTOR/BW fan mainly.
    - Looks like they took him to some bolt hole in the Wounded Coast.
    - I wonder if it's near the Injured Cliffs? Or the Limping Hills? Massive-Head-Trauma-Bay? No? Just me? *sigh* Forget I said anything.

    Please, the way lightsaber duels work is that they go through a series of choreographed attack sequences and feints etc so that they can concentrate their force powers to focus more on predicting the enemies move, and making their own attacks more random to their enemies eyes. Something like the 1 second flurry in that scene would have been done to simply gauge the enemy and try and provoke them into an attack, baiting if you will. (If you want to disagree with me about the fighting with preplanned sequences I suggest you go read Darth Bane: Path of Destruction. Excellent book, and reveals a lot of about their fighting styles)

    I swear it's like hating on the second trilogy is the trendy thing to do...
    "Didn't we have some fun...though? Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said 'Goodbye' and you were like 'No way' and then I was all 'We pretended we were going to murder you'......that was great"

    No kidding. I for one love both trilogies. Even Jar-Jar didn't annoy me. My only issue was Hayden Christensen who in Episode II was absolutely horrific. He picked it up a little in Ep. III but still he was a very, very poor choice for Anakin. Other than that, like I said, I love both trilogies.

    Go learn a little about lightsaber combat =D
    Besides it being normal choreographed form, those two practiced for hour upon hour, week upon week, year upon year with each other and developed intrinsically similar fighting styles and knew exactly how each other fought - that (in reality 1.5 seconds) was a culmination of prediction and tension to which both Jedi gave their everything, hence the resulting blowback.

    That being said, I loved the old fight scenes just as much. I watched them when I was a kid and was hooked on these amazing lightsabers ever since.
    The old fights were emotional, revolutionary, and mysterious. They had traditional sword combat.
    The newer ones are flashy, fast paced, intricate and adrenaline fueled.
    Both are good in their own way.
    (Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon vs Darth Maul is still by far my favourite despite the conclusion=>)

    As for Qui-Gon being the worst Jedi thing, I did laugh, though he is my second favourite Jedi of all time ^_^ (Trailing Aayla, proceeding Ki-Adi and Obi-Wan.)
    Go read the Jedi Apprentice series all of you!
    Maybe written for teens, but fantastic books nonetheless, I grew up with them.
    The characters and emotions, and the plots are all original and brilliantly written.

    As for Sw:ToR, definitely looking forward to it. I wish the combat was shaping up to be a little more like Tera or GW2 rather than Wow's which has become a little stale to me, but the high animation and sound quality can fix that.
    Yes I know Renagade is spelt wrong, I have use this name since I was about 5 and stuck with it ^_^

    I hope this really doesn't need to be said:

    But New Trilogy vs Old Trilogy pissing contests have no place here, and will quite quickly get threads closed - be civil please! (Cowers in fear of lurking Conscript & Trollsbane)

    I think I've become immune to getting pumped up by anything that uses Orff's O Fortuna as the soundtrack. Ditto for Kronos Quartet's Lux Aeterna. The compositions themselves are fine, but so ridiculously overused, they instantly ruin any attempts at creating epic atmosphere. -.-

    I can't watch on my phone, but I'm pretty sure I wont change my mind. Its just too boring for me and that's because I've never cared much for star wars. I don't want people to bash me because of my opinion, that would be immature on your part.
