    Thumbs up Star Wars Galaxies

    Just giving everyone a head up that in the new issue (June 2002) of Computer Gaming World (which I am reading right now) they have a 12 page preview (beginning on page 64) with a pullout poster & other cool things relating to the game.

    The cover has Chewbacca, a Twi'Lek & some other guy (he's a jedi cause of a light saber on the belt, maybe Dash Rendar???).......

    Anyway, jus thought I'd let you guys know!

    I can't wait for this game, then I can finally retire from Asheron's Call after 3 years of playing. Derek, as for a release date, the last one I heard was November, alongside the Episode II DVD release. I hope they add Gungans as a playable race in a future expansions. Until then, I guess I will play Trandoshans.

    Question

    I've got some question concerning this game...

    Do you have to play it on-line or can you play it on your own... ???

    Is this a proper role playing-game, where the character has to be feed, develope his skills and choose what missions he wants... Or just go around admiring the views... ???

    I believe theres an add-on which allows the character to pilot crafts... Must he obtained money to purchase them or join the military... ???

    Thanx in advance...

    It's a MMORPG, Massive Multi-player Online Role Playing Game. So yes, you have to play it online like UO, Everquest, or Asheron's Call. There will be no offline version of the game.

    Yes, it's one of those type. Though not all of them force you to have to eat. In Asheron's it's taken into account that your charecter eats when he's not fighting, adventuring, etc. Though there are healing and restorative magic foods you can use. Not sure if it will be the same for Star Wars, or not.

    They are already working on a "Space" expansion, that will allow you to purchase your own ships, and have space combat. Until then all space travel will be thru the use of hired passage on shuttles, etc. You would have to have the money to purchase a ship, unsure if you get assigned a ship, if your a pilot working for the Empire or Rebellion. Of course you may also be able to go to someone like Jabba for a loan.

    Personally, I am really looking forward to this. I hope it doesn't suck. Unfortunately I am let down by man many SW games.

    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Already signed up. I can't wait for this game. I've been dying to try Everquest or one of the other MMORPGs for a long time, but I held off when Galaxies was announced (geez, that was almost two years ago)

    I'm kind of torn on this game. Part of me can't wait for it, the other part of me is very afraid of how many days I will waste away playing it! I do have to admit though, that not being a huge fan of RPG's I honestly don't fully understand what this game will end up being. What little I do understand of it sounds very cool though!
