For those of you who have been living under a rock for the last week and a half, Star Wars: The Old Republic is out. With 4 archtypes to choose from, which then advance into 2 separate classes of their own, each one of these classes have two ways to advance. SWTOR is one of the more versatile MMOs on the market as far as character and class customization. Toss in the fact that each character is given 6 companions to aid them on their journeys or (SPOILER) possibly lead into romantic interludes, however ugly the dark side may make your character, you will never be alone in the galaxy even if your friends and guild are offline. This companion system works great to make sure you have the added DPS in a sticky situation, the healer for that tight spot between life and death, or the tank you need to keep up to prevent a squishy sage or inquisitor from being torn to bits by the ravenous denizens of each world you may encounter. Tack on drop in space battles that are so easy to get the hang of, even your grand mother could enjoy them :)
Do not miss out on all the action the galaxy from a long time ago which is also far away has to offer!
