It’s that time of the week again, friends – time for the latest, greatest TORWars podcast! This is a special show, simply because this was a very special weekend. Everyone who had signed up for beta testing at SWTOR.com was invited to test the game this weekend! Of course, for most people, this was their first hands-on experience with the game, and their excitement is palpable. (No, seriously, it is. Feel free to palpate it.)
What do we talk about on this week’s show? As usual, we run the gamut, covering SWTOR stories from all over the galaxy for your listening pleasure. Of course, we thoroughly dissect the stress test beta weekend (and we evaluate the results), we discuss the latest press impressions of The Old Republic, we pimp out the latest video guides by the epic raiding guild Condemned, and we introduce the newest community manager to join the team over at BioWare.
Beyond this, we discussed the nuances of stuffed game servers, the not-so-ugly reality of gaming queues, BioWare’s impressive Jedi Consular progression video, and the surprisingly good space combat game to be found in SWTOR. In the middle of all of this, of course, we also mix in the usual number of PG rated bad words, pedantic jokes, and references to our near-constant state of inebriation. In other words, it’s a very good show.
Of course, we’re not the final word. No, we want to hear from you! What do you think of the beta test weekend? Did you enjoy the space game as much as we did? Tell us your thoughts on these topics and more in the comments below!
