Star Wars: The Old Republic

I was highly skeptical that SW:TOR could be successful in an environment where there are so many freemium MMOs, but I will say this: Dubious Quality Timesink Advisor John Harwood is definitely on board. I'm not sure he even sleeps anymore.

I've heard from other people I trust as well, and their reaction is almost uniformly positive. The game isn't perfect, they say, but it is extremely engaging and very satisfying to play.

I also think it was very clever to have a limited launch. Guaranteeing a sellout, so to speak. Queues always better than the sound of crickets.
