Prize boxes do not interest me...EVER!! If I cant buy EXACTLY what I want, since I EARNED THE COINS, I will not do it. Ever.

More stupid pointless pets/statues that just take up inventory.
More pointless titles.
More grinding and repetition.

No furthering of companion story or marriage. NOTHING!!!
No further Legacy perks (which makes even having Legacy anymore pointless)
No fixing of bugs that have been around since day 1
No ARMOR DYE SYSTEM

Yes, I am not impressed. It will just be more grinding, less fun.

Great.

Didn't see much, on the main website it was advertised as game play vid, little to no game play seen. And this should be freely accessible for subscribers imo.
Or do the subscribers pay for up keeping the current game only and not for the development and new content?

I love the game but will never pay for this because I already pay 144,- a year! Should be enough right?

And what do you get? Another planet only? Little to no info on what to come. Sorry I will not support this but wish all a nice time on that planet and hope for them it is worth the money they payed.

If the next add on will include a new sector with planets and new content, then I can agree with the additional fee.

Way back in the day Makeb was going to be free to subscribers but of course this was before the dark times before....the Cartel Market.

TBH I'm more hacked that I can't pay for it using CC.

Do agree with the comments on the video though for a gameplay video it showed a startling lack of anything resembling gameplay. I would like a sneak peak at a skill tree and preferably a quest conversation for the next video so I can actually make a reasoned judgement about it.

BioWare still hasn't said anything other then constantly repeat the name of the planet and the word Hutt.
What did show us is Makeb, the city, the surroundings, the airships etc. And his inhabitants, most importantly the guards and the Hutt. I thought all of that 'looks awesome' - the visuals are stunning and the planet itself is very original looking (I looked at the new concept art too) and it looks like they've altogether upped the game concerning design.

Sure we didn't see anything else e.g. gameplay, story - all we saw was the environment, which was awesome. Hope that answers your question.

Not that that really matters anyway, it is a 'teaser' trailer and likely the first of many. You just have to be patient. And guess what? If you pay 6 you get to see the whole thing!

(And don't say you want to make sure you get your money's worth, 6 for an entire planet is a bargain - considering I'm aware that DmC are charging 4 for a couple of 'Dante' skins)

imo, trailers are trailers, and gameplay is gameplay.

and why the hell should a subscriber be paying extra money for new stuff? i really dont get it.

It looks and sounds interesting. I read this on the ROTHC page: "Experience 5 new levels, including story-driven missions, as the level cap increases to 55!"

Story driven missions? I take that to mean there are going to be new missions and such available.

I'm becoming tempted to pre-order. I'm going to wait a bit longer for more info. However, the temptation is getting stronger.

Well yeah, definitely going to be a big planet quest and subquests. Else the planet would kinda stink. However I don't think were going to see a Chapter 4 just yet, not only have they avoided answering that question (meaning the answer is no) but they haven't advertised it at all.

And pre-order now! Its only 6 and you get a whole planet, 5 new levels, new abilites, new gear, new skill points, exclusive early access and you get to support BioWare! Yay! No but seriously, the more money you chuck at these guys, the more likely it is we'll get more content, and possible a Chapter 4. Buy it!

EDIT: Actually its probably best you wait until the price gets bumped up. More money for BioWare!

P.S. I am not a BioWare employee... no really, I'm not. Just a fan, that's all.

I'll trade Hutts for more *********** body types any day.

Whoever thought of going from anorexic teenager, to average skinny *** joe, to super steroids, to fat **** needs to be let go.

Same with the guy who thought of the dumb *** hair styles.
