Being 32 years old, I was around when the original trilogy was, well, a culture in itself. I had the Millenium Falcon, no less than 30 action figures along with the Darth Vader carying case for them. I think I also had the "Star Destroyer" (no, not the death star) which featured a cool seat for Darth with a chamber that closed in around him. Had a blaster and a light saber too. Those were the days.
What's my point? I don't have one.
Oh yeah, I just wanted to confirm for some of you that the game Star Wars Galaxies is actually pretty god damn good. In fact, I am hooked on it like crack.
I have been a first person shooter player EXCLUSIVELY for 8+ years now. I have never EVER played an MMORPG (or any other type of RPG). With all the BS going on with Half Life 2, and delays of other games I decided, in a rage, to try something new. I originally went down to buy a copy of Eve, but bought SWG instead.
All I can say is "it kicks ass". I know many of you traditional RPG geeks aren't completely satisfied with it for whatever reasons, but I love it. I haven't played a game this much since I first purchased Quake 1 on it's release day. The graphics are sweet, the depth of the things you can do in the game is insane, and future releases like the "Space Expansion" next year will be mind blowing.
After playing this game I have been stoked to see Episode 3, even though I don't personally believe the story was written as well as the Original 3. I also want to watch the first 3 again.
Yes, my post is way OT, but I just wanted to say my piece. Those of you who are sick and tired of the BS going on with all the new shooters might want to check it out. It's addictive and fun as hell. SOE really should have kept more of the RPG stuff in PlanetSide that they were originally planning. Seeing the elements at work in SWG makes one wish they had tried a little harder on PS.
He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.
