E3: SW The Old Republic trailer

E3: SW The Old Republic trailer

Yes I know, PC games are not really what Gamersyde is all about but we thought we could make an exception with Bioware's Star Wars: The Old Republic. The E3 trailer is so breathtaking it would have been a shame not to see it here in very high quality, dont you think?

Couldnt agree more. This was so nice to see at the EA's conference yesterday.

Wasn't this the only game that used a CGI trailer, everything else shown featured ingame footage =/

Pretty good nontheless, liked the hadouken :)

TFU2 CGI and both The Old Republic CGI's are breathtaking!

It seriously gives Blizzard a real competition in this area...but that Starcraft 2 CGI that recently god released is breathtaking!

I am still wishing that some of these companies make a full blown CGI like this quality for 3 hours full on movie, I would so go to theaters to watch it, and then Blu Ray!

Nice Trailer too bad the actual game looks like trash.

Hope you guys can upload the new FF14 trailer.

Isn't his supposed to take place pre-every star wars movie? Then how are there clone soldiers? And that aside, why are there clone soldiers fighting against the empire? I always thought they were the prospective stormtroopers...


Well Nerd talk aside this is some amazing CGI, I wonder how long it takes them to make a 5 minute trailer.

KAMEHAMEHAAAAAAA !!!!!!

Great trailer, too bad(for me at least) that bioware is wasting their talent with a MMO...

They would've made a great single player game. You can tell by the quality of this CGI trailer...

So ... in the first Trailer the Empire wins and in the second the Republic NICE ...

Once again Bioware and Blur Studio have created a trailer so awesome it makes all 3 Star Wars Prequels look like total shite.

THIS is what you should have done with your franchise Lucas. DAMN YOU AND YOUR GUNGANS!!!

Beautiful trailer by Blur Studios yet again.

In a way, its also bittersweet knowing that our games can look like this in a few years but the current console cycle for Sony and Microsoft won't allow it.

You obviously haven't been paying much attention to Blizzard and Square-Enix CGI then, this is kind of average as far as decent CGI goes.

Well, that's a pretty cool video. Anybody seen the ad for Starcraft 2? Of course you have. So I guess that you thought the same thing while watching this trailer. Why isn't this an actual movie?
I'd rather see the actual game, though.

Yes you are right around 4000 years BBY (Before Battle of Yavin). Don't think they are clones, unless GL has gone completely senile... Just a uniform armour set.

I would say the quality is just as good as those two.
If I had to rank the quality, I would put Blizzard at top and the number 2 spot would be debatable between the studio that does the Old Republic, Sqare Enix and the Warhammer cinematics

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (2 Hours ago)
