If At First You Don't Succeed...

Try another Star Wars MMOG. Lucas Arts and BioWare (unfortunately a branch of EA now... boooo), have announced a new MMOG titled Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Despite being deeply flawed, I was a big fan of Star Wars Galaxies when it first came out. It's now a completely different game, and one I have little interest in, but I could still get excited about playing in a Star Wars MMOG if done well.

There's not a lot of information out yet, but the Knights of the Old Republic games have been some of the best Star Wars video games ever done, so it's natural that they would choose to revisit that era for the new MMOG. It also has the advantage of being full of jedi, which is something that plagued Galaxies, being set in a post Order 66 galaxy where jedi were supposed to be all but extinct, yet everyone wanted to play one.

I've mostly given up on following games pre-release, but I'll probably keep an eye on this one.
