Gamescom Booth Blitz: The Old Republic

The good thing about The Old Republic booth is that it sure looks all Old Republically. Just imagine publisher LucasArts made it look New Republicish?

That would be very embarrassing. We can feel our faces flush red hot right now.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is an upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game for PC from developer BioWare and LucasArts. Release date is currently unannounced.

DISCUSSION

[Gamescon opens to a wild mob of Star Wars cosplayers, who are led by one particularly angry uber fan dressed up as Darth Vader. They burst into the convention center and head straight for BioWare's booth]

Cosplay Vader [motioning menacingly and making fists]: Where is this MMO that you have createD? WHAT have you DONE with my KOTOR 3?

Bioware Rep [choking]: There is no KOTOR 3.

[gasps]

We are just a marketing team, on a diplomatic mission...

Cosplay Vader: If this is a marketing vehicle, then WHERE is KOTOR 3?

[Bioware rep runs away in fear.]

Cosplay Vader [addressing his Cosplay Commander]: Commander, tear this ship apart until you find that game! And bring me all bioware employee, I want them ALIVE!

[After they start terrorizing the booth another, female, rep is hauled before Cosplay Vader]

Female Rep: Gamescom Security will not sit still for this. When they hear you've attacked a marketing...

Cosplay Vader: Don't act so surprised, your highness. You weren't on any marketing mission this time. Several KOTOR must be in development. I want to know what happened to your plans for them.

Female Rep: I don't know what you're talking about. I am an employee of Bioware on a marketing mission to Gamescom...

Cosplay Vader: You are part of Lucas' attempt to ruin Star Wars and a traitor! Take her away!
