Because this is a Bioware game. Set several thousand years before the shitty sequels.

if it's set several thousand years before, how come they still have the same technology and fashion?

Because I was like 9 when the first movie came out and I've wanted to be a Jedi ever since? IDG your question I guess.

And not all of the prequels were that shitty. I thought parts of 1, half of 2, and all of 3 were brilliant. The opening sequence of The Phantom Menace was great IMO.

the phantom menace is an absolutely dreadful film.

I mean, star wars itself is a fine children's adventure movie, but the phantom menace is a weird collage of boring details of galactic economic policy and space age ethnic stereotyping

According to the site, everyone who signed up to beta is getting an invitation to the next round of testing, because they're stress testing the server. They haven't said yet when it'll be, though.

I haven't finished downloading yet

I might actually take you up on that if the next beta is a new build

Anyway, I'm finally in to this weekend's beta. The good news is, my connection is up to playing it (albeit not to downloading it)! The bad news is, now I am tempted to buy it, which will cost money!

Well, yes, but then you can play with me and Sparkle. That's far more important than money.

Christ, this installer.

Downloading fucking enormous file at high speed. Good, should be done in a few hours.

Sorry, did we say high speed? We meant low. Well, OK. A few more hours won't matter.

Installing fucking enormous file. Awesome. Can't wait to get sta...

Oh, did we mention the other fucking enormous file? Downloading that now. Want to take a guess at what speed you're getting?

I swear they're doing this deliberately.

Reading Martin's post you may want to start that download before hockey.
