Is it just me, or does Zachary Quinto seem really less-than-thrilled with providing voice-overs for Star Trek Online? It’s cool they nabbed him, tho — it really will help their marketing to continue to provide any and all connections to the wildly successful Star Trek movie this past summer. And on a related note, shouldn’t they be just trucking in gobs of Star Trek actors for voice-overs at this point? I mean, it’s not like they’re really sparse or anything. You’d think that William Shatner or Red Shirt #6 wouldn’t mind another paycheck. Shatner’s done WoW, now he can prop up the franchise that really made him famous.
You won’t hear me talk a lot about Final Fantasy 14 on Bio Break next year — despite their claims of future awesomeness, I’m really ho-hum about it overall. Especially after a very lackluster experience in their current MMO a few years back (aka “The Incident In Which I Was Killed By A Sheep”).
I’ve been pretty impressed by The Old Republic’s planet selection — up to now. I’m with Moon Over Endor on this, it’s just disappointing that BioWare’s trucking out Tatooine for one of their locations. Yeah, it’s iconic, and ironic as this “backwards, nothing planet” is featured in almost all the movies and games. But it’s boring, it’s dull, it’s been-there-done-that, and even in the fantastic KOTOR, Tatooine was the lamest part of the game. Ah well, quibbles and bits.
On a brighter TOR note, this article’s pretty dang funny.
