I was brought this video by this post on Rock, Paper, Shotgun (RPS). The first comment fits directly in with my thoughts and even though Wildstar's footage was boring, it was not nearly as boring as the SW:ToR footage we saw from Gamescom.

Looks like a pretty traditional MMO with some next gen elements.
And making bear men explode.
Yeah, I think I’ll be getting this. This game is what SW:TOR wants to be but is not.
To back up my thoughts, the one and only RPS regular, Jim Rossignol, chimed in the same idea.

I am more interested in this than SW:TOR.
