I’ve not posted anything about Star Wars The Old Republic in a while. There is a reason for that and it’s mostly because it still doesn’t look any better. For a game that has reportedly had several hundred million spent on it, I would have thought Bioware would have been able to hire an animator of reasonable skill. As for the combat, well that still looks incredibly un-star-warsy. The coolest thing about the trailer you ask? It has to be Dallas Dickinson. He shouldn’t be working at Bioware with a name like that! He should be in Las Vegas running casinos or working as a chat show host on channel 900. He is destined for greatness.
Still, the cutscenes I do like and the art direction is growing on me somewhat, but I can’t help but think that if this is an attempt to drum up hype that Bioware are stuck in reverse gear. Am I being too harsh?
Hit the jump for the trailer.
