So Bioware has released the cinematic trailer for their new MMO, located here
Old Republic Trailer
All I have to say is that it looks awesome. You get to have your own party with NPC companions. You even see them in the trailer, the main Jedi guy with his droid companion and the Sith Lord with his Twi'lek companion. But there is one problem I might have. Different classes are only available for either side of the reputation. At this moment, if you want to be a bounty hunter, your a sith, if you want to play a trooper or a smuggler, your part of the republic. More classes will be added later, but so far I see one problem. I want to be a sith, but I think almost everyone else will be sith just to play a bounty hunter, so korriban will be full of little kiddies and there "omg butthurt". The other problem is that I know Q wants to play a smuggler, which means that we can't both be on the same side without one of us giving in.
Other then that, I'm really looking forward to the game, I just found out that a webcomic by Dark Horse is currently being made, and a Novel is being written by the storyline developer of the game, so really looking forward to those as well.
