In every action film there is a slightly bookish computer whiz back in a dimly lit van controlling all the action while the secret agent on the ground gets all the credit. And martinis. While we’ve played the tough guy hundreds of times, we have yet to play an accurate “nerd in the van” simulator… until now.
The line to play SWTOR at Comic-Con was at least 12 parsecs in length! With San-Diego sun beating down on their storm trooper armor, fans endured Tatooine-level heat for a chance to play SWTOR early. Heck, some fans enjoyed the experience so much that even after waiting multiple hours for a 15 minute play session they simply hopped right back in line just to play again. Star Wars: The Old Republic is a spectacular game that is going to redefine the way people look at MMOs. Being a Beta-Tester prevents me from saying anything more than… I’ve played it, and I like it. Here are some highlights of SWTOR at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. May the Star-Wars sweat be with you.
