[editedby='Kouen']Thread split off from this thread, since it r teh awf-topicness. :O[/editedby]

Interface, style and coloration of red lightsaber blades, and the face of the character suggest Pre-NGE, but the downed AT-AT suggests a timeframe of within the last three weeks. Can't be a UI mod restoring the Pre-NGE interface - the UI mods are good, but they're not perfect, plus they're not compatible since the Chapter 7 update - which was roughly when the AT-AT was added into the game. Could've been in the game at a previous stage in time, but there seems to be no evidence of it ever existing before.

The fact that someone is selling Khiraxz and Longprobe Y-Wing chassis for 45k is a prime indicator of that particular screenshot being at least 18 months old, since these days you'd be lucky to score a Longprobe for under 120k (on the European servers, at least) - hell, you'd be lucky to score one at all if you didn't have your own shipwright toon handy, since everyone seems obsessed with mass-manufacturing Firesprays in this day and age.

You get to do some stuff for Vader as well on Kashyyyk, and he rewards you with the deed for his Eta-2 Actis Interceptor.

In fact, just about every original trilogy character has a cameo. Han and Chewie rescue you from an Imperial station at the start of the game, Boba Fett hands work out to Bounty Hunters and also hands out some of Jabba's missions, Obi-Wan - despite being decapitated before SWG - still manages to bitch at you in spectral form during the Mustafar expansion pack, Captain Ackbar is one of the many Rebel command staff lurking in their bases, along with Leia, Mon Mothma, and Luke. General Veers also shows his face, albeit he's only a Colonel during this timeframe. Watto sends you running around Tatooine looking for junk, Oola and Sy Snootles' band are in Jabba's Palace, and those annoying droids are still hanging around spouting off more unintentionally homosexual dialog. Even Panaka shows up. And he wasn't even in the original trilogy. In fact, he didn't even do jack in the prequel trilogy. :Puzzled:

EU characters are retconned in, as well. Reelo Baruk, Bossk, Garm Bel Iblis, Mara Jade, Captain Thrawn, Nym, Corran Horn, even HK-47 and Grievous for Pete's sake.

All those characters, and you can't even kill one of the hammy bastards. Where's the fun in that?


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Well it's not like $15 a month is a lot. Unlimited gameplay for the priceof three trips to McDonalds(not like i'd ever eat there). I used to think the idea was totally ludicrous too, but when I had a part time job working one day a week it was still easily affordable. You don't have to buy the disks either, it's a free download if you play the trial first. Online shops like direct2drive have packages with all the expansions. When I got it it was just the standard and jump to lightspeed. ;/

You can just download the 14-day trial from the official site, you get two weeks free with no obligation to subscribe, and you get An Empire Divided, Jump To Lightspeed and Rage Of The Wookies for free (i.e. the core game, the space expansion, and the Episode III expansion).

Trials of Obi-Wan, the third expansion, is the only one you'll have to buy, but it's really not that expensive, and between SWG, JTL and RotW, it'll be a long time before you run out of content, so it's not like getting ToOW is of the utmost importance for enjoyment of the game - besides, it's mostly high-level instances anyway.

My advice? First thing you do, should be getting a guild. A single-player game, it ain't. It'll seem a lot less boring if you have people to talk to, crack a few jokes, group up for stuff, and just generally socialise.

I wish everyone did this in all MMO's. It seems people buy MMO's to solo now-a-days and it really sicken me. Ask someone to party, if their busy, not in the mood, thats fine.

If I see them on the game every day with no guild, never in a party, then they should honestly get a regular RPG..... [/rant]

If you want to continue be married I'd advise against even trying SWG... or any other MMO for that matter. :p
