The "New Game Experience", which once caused Yoda to shudder as if a thousand kittens were being harrassed at the same time, of Star Wars Galaxies has found the attention of the Washington Post:
Blakely acknowledged that such reaction by some of the game's veterans was not a surprise and said the switch was made for the long-term success of the game as a business. "It was a tough decision we had to make," he said. "We knew we were going to sacrifice some players . . . [but] as a 'Star Wars' license, we should do a lot better than we have been doing."
I'm not going to really push any opinion on NGE one way or another, other than my previous "the demo didn't draw me away from Guild Wars". To be honest though, that's true for about 90% of demos, so it's not really earth shattering in any way.
