I hope this is what we have to look forward to during the offseason from Kluwe:
That short little video is courtesy of Game Informer Executive Editor and Tripping Icarus band member, Andrew Reiner, cool dude who apparently plays Star Wars: The Old Republic video game with Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, aka, Chris Warcraft, also, holy crap that was a long introductory sentence. If I had any idea it was a dancing game, I would have bought it right away!
Just kidding. For those that don't know, SWTOR is a massively multiplayer online game set in the very old Star Wars universe where people run around and do stuff. You know, shoot, saber stab, fly in jet packs and shit. It sounds sweet, but I have my personal doubts with the whole online thing, monthly fees, cartoony graphics, a wife who would saber stab me if I played so long, etc. However, now that we all know that ANYONE WHO PLAYS IT GETS TO DANCE WITH CHRIS KLUWE, I might change my mind and get it eventually (that, and some of the trailers do look tantalizing, even if they're a bit misleading).
There's really only one question left: Which character is Kluwe's? Is it the lightsaber wielding fiend who pulls the glow-stick raver card? Or the gun toting bounty hunter who shows more sway in his hips? In searching for the answers, you must just trust your feelings ... They will guide you ... And inform you that ... I have no idea. I wish he'd just leave a comment to let us know.

I feel like a dirty stalker knowing this, but there's so much creepy to go around that I figured I'd join in. Loate was Kluwe's rogue in World of Warcraft, so it's likely the lightsaber raver is him.
@Itolami That is good you know this stuff. We need more nerds around here.
@Itolami Stalker?! Never!
This is actually good insight. I don't know how the icons for players works in SWTOR, but we do see "Loate" above the lightsaberer. I don't know if that means it's above his head because it's him, or if it's on the screen because it belongs to the bounty hunter guy who we are watching behind. My guess is that Loate IS the lightsaber guy, but who knows.
Also, I like that they're playing in a brigade called the "Awkward Pause Brigade." Nice.
Oddly enough, my work seems have blocked my ability to see comments on this blog. And only this blog. I'm not sure how or why either, as I go to far more questionable blogs...
Anyway, while I played World of Warcraft, I can't personally get into the whole star wars space thing; just find it incredibly dull. However, a bunch of people I've played wow with over the years, husband included, are currently trying out swtor so I know how the labelling works.
The name Loate does belong to the light saber guy. It's largely considered a douchebag move to take other gamers' names, especially among friends who game together, but, I've seen it done, so that's why I only say I bet that's him
