SWTOR and the Idea of Endless Levelling

It’s E3 week, but as someone who doesn’t play console games or (most) first person shooters I wasn’t expecting a whole lot in the way of exciting announcements. As it turns out there was a gameplay trailer for next year’s Sim City, but aside from that generally nothing so far has really caught my eye. However, yesterday Bioware/EA gave their conference presentation and included details about upcoming SWTOR...

My SWTOR Post-Mortem

I cancelled my SWTOR subscription yesterday, although I still have 45 days of playtime left. I felt bad doing it, to be honest. I like Bioware, I like Star Wars, I like “the fourth pillar” of story. Somehow, though, at the end of the day it all came together into something I’m not interested in playing, or at least not interested enough to pay $15 a month to play. The SWTOR folks clearly did not set out to design a...

1.2 Pets and Rakghouls: SWTOR Is Worth Revisiting

Bragging time: Over the weekend an article I wrote last year about being a newbie disc priest on the WoW Arena Tournament server was published on PC Gamer. I feel all legit and stuff! ————— As someone who was kind of skeptical about SWTOR — I think it’s a great game for altoholics, but I am a single-character kinda gal — I have to admit that patch 1.2 has brought a lot of fun back into...

“Entitled” Gamers Need to Ask the Right Questions (SWTOR)

Herding Cats is currently undergoing a facelift. Please ignore the mess! Posting twice in one day?! HOW IS POSSIBLE. This is just a quick post to address a SWTOR-related debacle that started this afternoon and will still be rolling along tomorrow. Earlier today Bioware announced that along with the release of patch 1.2 every player with an active account and a level 50 character would receive a free month of time....

My SWTOR 1.2 Highlights

Herding Cats is currently undergoing a facelift. Please ignore the mess! I had kind of wandered away from SWTOR over the past month or so. It was partially for technical reasons (my computer really does not like SWTOR) and partially because .. I don’t know. It just didn’t grab hold of me the way some other games have. I think my general reluctance to roll alts kind of flies in the face of SWTOR’s plan to keep me...

Missing the Fluff in SWTOR and Sixth Memes

I’ve been going through a bit of a non-playing phase for the past week or two. Part of it is directly attributable to Supernatural appearing on Netflix Instant Watch — I heard the first five seasons are amazing and it really is quite addictive. Mostly, though, it’s just the natural cycle of things. Sometimes I don’t wanna MMO! Honestly, I wish SWTOR had more fluff. It might in a few months, of course, and...
