I am disappointed with this nearly to the point of anger. After watching the interviews and reading the press on it, I cannot believe that LucasArts and BioWare completely ignored the fans and chose to make this MMO instead of KotOR 3. They even have the nerve to say things like:
"Our fans ask, 'Why aren't you doing Knights of the Old Republic 3?' What we're really doing is Knights of the Old Republic 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12-plus. We have that much content and that many stories...We really get to do a lot of things we really wouldn't get to do in [a] KOTOR 3."
For most of us, the point was not that we wanted multiple sequels, the point was we just don't want yet another MMO
. MMOs in general suck and there is no reason to believe that this one will be any different. Making an Old Republic MMO instead of KotOR 3 is going to ruin what could have been one of the greatest single-player RPG franchises of all time. Thanks for nothing, LA and BioWare.
Welcome to the EA-infested Bioware. They let Mass Effect (PC - which, honestly, wasn't as good as people said it was) get raped by SecuROM, and now this bull. I've lost a lot of faith in Bioware in the last little while. Such a shame, they used to be an awesome company.
I despise MMOs, hell, I generally dislike online gaming. I don't want to play against other people. I hate people, and I'm sure people share mutual feelings for me. So this whole MMO announcement just pisses me off. I'm only a couple hours away from Edmonton, maybe I should drive up there this weekend and piss on their office door handles.
