TOR: Imperial Troopers Have Entered The Base!

GDC was interesting to me mostly on a small scale, but if there was one thing I was supremely jealous of not seeing in person was The Old Republic hands-on demo.  Both Massively and Darth Hater provided great impressions articles that are helping to stoke the burning embers of my anticipation.  Every time I look at the calendar and think how far it is until 2011, I feel a bit forlorn, but my feelings can’t change what will happen, so I might as well just enjoy the buildup and stop trying to rush to the future.

One geek-honored tradition to pass the time until launch is to mull over and speculate which class one will play when the game finally releases.  It’s good to see the Trooper on display here, because my initial class will be one of the four non-Force classes for sure, and the Trooper is sufficiently kick-butt to warrant consideration.  The armor is iconic and sweet-looking, and man, check out those guns!  I’m off to the gun show for sure!

Uh, no, not that gun show...
That's the ticket!

    Trooper or Smuggler for sure, I’m not going force user initially either.

    Darth Hater has amazing first impressions as always, those guys go in such crazy detail, who needs a marketing department when you have a website like Darth Hater feeding hype with tasty news tidbits. I can’t wait to get on Vent tonight for the dev Q&A chat. Eurogamer also had fantastic impressions as well, I wish Massively would have spent more time on their article, it seemed very rushed to published, and had no details at all.

    If I play on the Republic side, this is really the only class that interests me, so I was quite happy to get some great impressions about the Trooper. I think I’ll still be targeting the Sith Warrior or Inquisitor, but if I managed to get into beta, I would play Trooper just to not spoil all the Empire content.
