    I just stumbled across this game recently. I can't believe it! I am so excited. Have any of you guys checked out the info on this game? It's still in development but I already feel like a kid at christmas. I can't believe the extent of detail! My life long goal of immersion in the star wars universe is at hand. excellent....



    check it out at www.starwarsgalaxies.com. Have any idea what your characters are going to be like?

    It does look great!! I dont really like RPG games tho,I'd rather play a first person shooter.

    What they need to do is make a Star Wars game on the new Unreal2 engine,now that would kick some serious booty!!!

    I'd like to get it, but I don't feel like paying the fee to play online.

    i personally love RPGs (i love 1st person shooters too though)..i was thinking of a bothan character just to be different. maybe a human character because i hear you can customize your skins and such (something i do often in the sims).

    i just wish they could somehow include coruscant in the game but i read that they dont have the time or resources or something.

    bothans actually seem popular. I was looking at a message board on star wars galaxes and many people described bothan characters. Bothans have different skin options too. They're offering different races for each species..

    I could be wrong but I think you can change the camera view to first person view and it basically feels like a first person shooter during combat (whether its with another player or a nonplayer character)
    with expansion sets I hear you'll be able to have dogfights....that would be so money...it's like a first person shooter an rpg and space/aerial combat in one...

    I'm with Roy. Blizzard hosts Battle.Net for free, although I'm sure that some of their success was unexpected. And yes, Blizzard deos use scources such as AT&T, but they still don't charge. There are about 300,000 people on B.Net at any given time, probably more at the busy points.

    I personally want Bounty Hunter. A fps/tps that you get to actually control Fett. Comes out sometime this fall, I can't wait.

    actually, as i reflect back upon the things i've read, i think i'd most like to play a twi'lek because i remember seeing something about twi'lek characters being able to learn to speak with/read the lekku (understandable by other twi'leks only i believe?), which i thought was a great touch

    I never play online games. my computer is always too slow. I have played the episode II game for GBA, but I don't think that counts.

    I'm pretty sure Bounty Hunter is coming out for GameCube, although GameCube has about two good games.

    haha so true....unfortunately one of those two games is rogue leader...
    mmm...rogue leader...I intend to wait for the price of gamecubes to hit 39.99 and then buy one..just for rogue leader.

    mmm...xwing-alicious

    Gamecube won't hit $40 until way way way in the future when the next Nintendo system is out. Give it 5 years or so. :)

    indeed...sometime in November which is a long way off but like I said, I can be patient.

    I love halo. I bought the xbox just for halo and it was so worth it
