SWTOR: Shadow of Revan A Disappointment

Written by DCS on . Posted in News DCS Style

The opportunities that were lost in Star Wars The Old Republic: Shadow of Revan to bring back some of the things that made SWTOR a unique MMO gaming experience we’re overlooked, and that’s a damn shame.

There are some positive to take away from the Revan story. As a whole I can’t say I didn’t like it. But, not with the same vigor I absolutely had to gobble up the first 50 lvls on nearly all eight characters with the same kind of OCD Civilization fans will understand- “one… more… turn…”

Look, I’ll be honest. I am not your average MMO player. I played WoW for a total of 15 seconds because it’s boring as fuck to me to just run around and kill shit all to get better gear. But I devoted quite a lot of man hours and money to SWTOR, and not just because I’m a Star Wars geek. The story sucked me in. I have played through Marauder, Jedi Knight, Bounty Hunter, Smuggler, Jedi Consular, and Imperial Agent story-lines. I loved them all. Some more than others, but yes, hands down, just great. The choices, the companions, the beautiful graphics, y u so awesome?

Reminder these are unedited, raw, straight from my brain to the paper and complete with the notes I write to myself as I’m writing. They are out of order because I write in scenes, not necessarily chronologically all the time. Warnings out of the way. Enjoy! Feel free to guess, speculate, what have you with what’s going on, and where it might lead. I just might tell you if you’re right.

 


“If a timeline is significantly changed and not corrected within 33 days of that change, reality seems to bend to that truth and doesn’t allow it to return to the way it was no matter what you do after the fact.”
“How many times has that happened before?”
“On Earth? Twice.”
Simone rubbed her temples. She glanced back at Caleb, the snapped her eyes right back to Saraya. “What Gabriel did, is that why-“
“No. We changed that.”
“Why?”
“Because you’re going to need help.”
“And if I… correct the timeline?”
Saraya said nothing.
Emotion crashed into Simone as the reality of the choice Saraya was asking her to make sunk in. If she corrected the timeline, Caleb died. If she didn’t, he lived, but the world didn’t Ascend. Her jaw clenched. “Oh you sonofabitch.”
“I haven’t prevented it.”
“What?”
“You can’t prevent a choice that’s already been made. You can only prolong it.”
“I’m on borrowed time regardless of what I do?”
“Yes.”

A gut instinct she could not explain put her in motion before her brain had made its up mind. Saraya asked the air to carry her and shot forward. She moved in and out of time, arriving at the helicopter in half a second. Saraya reached in, grabbing the girl and threw her out, chucking her through the same rift she had used to reach them, pushing the human woman through again and again until she landed on the ground. She would be banged up, but she would live. Saraya did the same with both of the men. When they were out she shoved the metal machine with all her might, pushing it through an opposite rift. It crashed to the ground a few meters outside of the circle.
She would have smiled in triumph but her strength left her and she toppled to the ground.
