Yeah, yeah.

I finished the first planet and I'm now loving it.  I thought the game was going to be a bag full of half-assed Bioware sidequests (as opposed to normal, good Bioware sidequests), but once the whole map was uncovered, I saw it all as one area, and knew how everything tied together, and it didn't feel like random nothing anymore.  I could vividly remember the one main plot as I looked back on each section.  I actually backtracked to finish all of my previous quests, when I had been skipping them out of apathy.

I thought this formula was not going to work as I played the first 5 levels, but it panned out beautifully.  My anima probably needs more than 3 days to fully charge anyway ;)

A group of three (me being a lvl 9 Consular) trying the Esseles FP was so much fun, but we could not beat Ironfist after 5 tries.  He always had like 5% hp when we died.  Beating him has consumed my thoughts today.

I usually never make more than one character in any online game, but this is a different case.  People always say "if you get bored at lvl999 just make another character, it's like playing a whole new game hurr" and it rarely is.  Playing a character of the other faction would be a new plot and new areas this time.

The empire side is so much better I think. I have toons on both sides but I like the empire side after hitting level 25 on both toons. I guess I just like seeing the empire not being as strong as they want the republic to see.

My computers are not awesome for this game. I need a new video card I think.

With shadows off and everything on low it runs alright, though. I am enjoying the game. I couldn't get on the same server as it was listed as "Full".
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Originally didn't care about this game because I've never watched a Star Wars in my life, but after watching some livestreams, it has perked my interest.  PvP seems similar to what GW2 is aiming for as everyone is in one bracket and your stats scale (I think).  How is everyone's level progression going?

I've never watched a Star Wars in my life,

Don't start unless you watch A New Hope or Empire's theatrical release. It's a little cliche at this point but those movies were mangled and dumped on. Return of the Jedi doesn't make any sense from any angle

Level 38 Sith Juggernaut, immortal spec.  I'll post a screenshot of my character later.  I capped my light side points a level ago.

Alright, downloading the main assets for the game right now before I purchase the game. Gonna take a long while.

Hopefully I'll actually be able to purchase the game where I am right now, because I was barred from preordering, at least.

Also, I think I've settled on playing Sith Assassin. Seems to appeal to me the most lore-wise, and hey, Stealth classes are always fun.

I picked it up today and it's all ready to go. Hopefully I'll get on tonight at some point. I'm not very well versed with MMO's at all so this should be a learning experience:/

double.  So i got it going and my comp can barely run it on the lowest possible settings. It's a 4 year old system so it's not all that surprising. I'm in the process of trying to update my drivers but it's bound to be a very minor improvement.  Oh the horror:(  I suppose a new tower is in order. I'm guessing a 500 dollar new tower should give me at least decent performance. I'm not looking for the highest possible setting. The frame rate is the biggest problem.
