Friday Update - Does My Gun Look Big In This ?

The trooper progression video hits and with only 1 more update until E3 arrives.

This is huge so close to the largest gaming convention on the planet looming near. This video is so telling, when in Austin I asked about stealth and stealth detection.

This Weeks News Round Up 27th May

Well I'm almost back on track with the little outage BlogSpot had last week. So by next week I should be back to where I was on the right times.
Oh and not to forget I recently found MineCraft which kind of sucked a fair few days from my life.

Friday Update - SWTOR-Life style !!!

First off I will give a huge shout out to my counter parts over at SWTOR-Life who got the latest fan site spot light.
The site has really taken off since we all started pulling together, and its a great honour to be placed in the spotlight. We still hope to go from strength to strength and with Serge and SWTORCRAFTER at the helm we can do just that. Everyone over there are such great guys and I'm glad to be working with them all. You can get the rest of the story here.

Friday Update & News Round Up

With Blog Spot being down for a few days, I missed my weekly news from around the web. But now I'm back and with it being after Fridays update I'll start from there.

The Sith Inquisitor Records

The quality of videos coming from SWTOR have been getting getter and better. You sometimes forget this is all in-game footage.

This one just goes to show that the Sith are sneaky and evil. Well what else would you expect from BioWare ?

Friday Update - The Codex


There is only so much lore some can take but the codex system seems the best way to bring this type of thing to the masses. A great many games have had similar story background features like this, but I'm sure nothing to the extent of being 120K words long.

It was a great pleasure to sit down with the guy that has most likely got the biggest amount of flame retardant suits on per-order over at BioWare Austin.

Story aside this guy was well and truly in the hot seat.

It was none other that Gabe Amatangelo. Even in this short meeting I came away with the feeling that PvP is in good hands. Half picked and half voluntarily appointed to this post, that many would just crumble at the scale of what is about to come.

Normally when you look over Dev interviews. You get the sense that they will only give you a small insight into what questions you have asked. The nifty footwork they have acquired in the time spent in Austin, at manoeuvring out of the way of those somewhat awkward questions. Would have Fred Astaire green with envy.

Well this time it seemed different.

I was quite taken back by the openness of it all. So much so I did not even get through half the questions I had planned. Though I have to admit this was all a breath of fresh-air.

I was shown to the most sparsely decorated room in the whole of BioWare Austin. Maybe just stripped clean for are own sake (prying eyes and all) or just to keep us focused on the task in hand. What ever the reason I was glad not to have the temptation to look at more classy art works that littered every part of that epic building.

I thought I would start out easy but it soon became apparent that Gabe was more than willing to talk about almost everything PvP

Now off to the Q and A
