I'm a Level 18 BH Powertech. I used my Forte and headphones last night for the first time while playing this game. The sound is amazing. I'm very pleased with the quality of the characters and animation, it lost a lot of the cartoon feel the beta had. I've only played BF3 once since SWTOR released.

I have not gotten into the whole MMO thing at all and I can say this one sure has me looking at it. I guess I just have a thing against paying monthly for a game that still costs me $60 to begin with.

Since you are all playing this, what is the cost per month for something like this?

You get 30 days free game time with your game purchase, then it's $14.99 monthly billing. 3 month subs are $13.99 per month, and 6 month subs are $12.99.

Thanks for the info SugarJ.

Next question I want to ask is simply, is it worth it?

You can play it like a single player game if you want to play for simply the story. I think it is totally worth it. The story is engaging because of the voice acting and mass effect-esque moral and dialogue.

If you like the Star Wars universe, it's worth it. If you liked the Mass Effect or Dragon Age storylines, it's worth it.

Oh great, I was really kind of hoping you would say I would hate it or something. The problem is I am a fan of Mass Effect and Dragon Age and Star Wars. Of course I have kind of drained my gaming budget for a little while but I might have to get into this once I have some more money for games.

It's great value for while you're playing full time. If it's just something to pick up a few hours a week maybe not so much.

Just finished the Maelstrom Prison Flashpoint.

Such a cool end to that instance...so good.
