I have to post this early because my holiday schedule will have me on the go for the next 4 days or so and I didn't want to miss out on wishing my fellow Lodgers a very Merry Christmas! I hope you all have as merry a time with your RL friends and family as we do in here.
A special toast to the founder of the feast, Mr. Scrooge!.....ACK! I mean, Gar! (Too many Christmas Carol movies this time of year!). Thank you, Gar, for keeping the lights on and the mood light!
As for me, I confess that I am approaching this holiday with a somewhat pronounced feeling of uncertainty. My wife, who has an accute understanding of what makes me tick, knows of my love for WoW and all things Star Wars (except Gungans, blinking ewoks, Greedo shooting first, the girl padawan from the Clone Wars cartoon, etc.) and has been asking me a lot of questions about SWTOR. "Oooh that game looks like WoW, doesn't it? You like WoW, right? You like Star Wars, too, right?" I fear, based on these questions, that Santa might drop a copy of that game under my tree. Would that be a bad thing? In a WoW free universe, absolutely not! I loved the SW games that BioWare did for XBox and SWTOR looks cool as hell! The problem is (and I'm sure this is one shared by many of you) that I don't know where the hell I'd find the time to play both games and still take care of everything related to my regular responsibilities like work, family, a mock trial team that I coach, etc. On top of that, my wife already thinks I spend too much time playing WoW as it is (whose wife doesn't, amirite?).
If I get the game I know the temptation will be great to respec my hunter.....TO 'BOUNTY'! Just thinking about this is giving me a headache again. You guys have a great holiday and I'll see you in a week or so. =)

Happy Holidays to you, Lawman.
If you are currently having fun playing WoW, the introduction of SWTOR to your life will not keep from you playing WoW. SWTOR is a great game and I'm already a fan for life, really enjoying playing it. I've been involved in a number of Beta weekends and Early Access, so been playing a while now already. I've hit a wall with my WoW playing- my guild has not been raiding as often as I'd like and I've either been unwilling to spend the time looking for them or just had bad luck in finding decent PuGs for Normal & HM content. I log in, find out no one is doing anything, there's nothing on the calendar, one of my best friends jumped to another server (and is a healer so is always in high demand) etc etc.
Basically, I'm not having fun with WoW so SWTOR has taken me away from Azeroth. I think if a person IS still having fun playing WoW there's no reason not to try SWTOR; you can enjoy both games.
Good luck, and I hope you *do* get a new lightsaber (or two!) in your stocking!

(1) I will be missing from my computer starting Saturday thru Monday. The Mrs. and I are heading to northern Wisconsin to spend Xmas with my family. It's about a four hour drive for us. We will open gifts and stuff with her family on Saturday during the day and then set out Saturday night for my family.
(2) SWTOR looks great and from what I have heard is good, IF you can even get to play it. There are some people that can't even get the game to play. I'm one of those people unfortunately. All my research thus far points to that my computer just doesn't have what it takes to run the game, although some people have reported the same issue and they have a higher end computers. *shrug* I've basically given up on it for now. I don't need any more stress for the holiday season, so I've shelved SWTOR. Maybe some day I can get a computer capable of running it. Oh well, back to getting kicked around by op Druids in battlegrounds! *grin*

All the best to you and yours this season L30. Alas I must admit I've no clue what a "SWTOR" is but I am sure that you will do just fine should the day of decision arrive. One is a wife, another a mistress. Yes I can see why you have a headache

I also wish everyone good health andfortune during the festive season. may it bring you all joy and "happyness!"
SWTOR does look good but I won't be trying it unless they do a free period or a trial of some sort. I don't like the idea of shelling out big bucks and then not liking the game. Scrooge? Yeah that's me!
I'm also looking forward to seeing Diablo 3. The cinematic is awesome, but hen, they all are.
Happy holidays all.
