The Old Republic E3 Cinematic
Today at E3, the Star Wars: The Old Republic intro cinematic premiered, showing the dramatic reappearance of the Jedi Order’s most ancient and terrible of enemies.
For over a thousand years, the Sith were thought to be no more; driven to extinction after a grave defeat in an ancient war. But a select few survived, fleeing to unknown regions to escape Republic forces. In the centuries since, the Sith have prepared; rebuilding their Empire for the day they would make their return to reclaim what was once theirs and take their revenge on the Republic.
Watch it here:
What did I learn from that cinematic? The only thing that would have made Han Solo look more like a rogue is a fedora. And that the second character I make will be a space cowboy.
The cinematic may have been full of clichés, but Star Wars holds a special place in my heart. The prequel disaster is behind me, and I’m ready for some Old Republic action.
One question: If Jedi/Sith are always more powerful when they grab a second lightsaber, why don’t they just always walk around with two lightsabers?
