Star Wars: The Old Republic Trailer Melts Brains

Today? Today we saw a pretty lame show from Microsoft. Too much talking, not enough showing, not many big guns to speak of in terms of software. EA had lots of big, big guns–you know, like the Gun Club! But one of these guns, one of these guns, rocked our collective worlds so hard, we were just speechless after the trailer. And that trailer is for Bioware’s upcoming–and first!–MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

This trailer is a full five minutes of non-stop AWESOME. And you know what? I don’t know heads or tails about the Star Wars franchise. And I still consider this trailer to be the best thing to come out of E3 all day.

Sure, you can call bias: it was the only morsel of Bioware that I was able to extrapolate from E3 today. And this MMO might just be the first MMO to suck me into the MMO craze–just because Bioware is making it, specifically. But you know what? You cannot tell me that the trailer above doesn’t captivate you. You’d be a pretty damn dirty liar!
