This Just In (Or not) – Game Update 1.7: Return of the Gree

 

Sorry all this one’s got to be short; but Star Wars: The Old Republic has just released Game Update 1.7: Return of the Gree. Meaning more options, missions, Cartel gear, and faction reps that help you earn more sci-fi goodies. I’m playing it right now, and you should too.

 

 

 

Game Gifts of 2012 – Star Wars: The Old Republic

swtor

 

For the next gift idea is, in my humble opinion, is a no brainner – Star Wars: The Old Republic. Why? Well let’s see: it has stellar personal stories for all the eight classes in the game, fanatic voice over work (and in a MMO no less), an impressive universe to explore, competitive PvP, HK-51, and now the best reason of all its free to play. I have no idea why anyone hasn’t played this game yet but now you have no excuses; on Christmas Day celebrate Life Day in a galaxy far, far away.

 

 

 

 

This just in (Or not) – swtor is free to play to-day.

 

That pretty much says it all people, anyone who wanted to try the Star Wars experience but didn’t want to fork over the $15 now the time. Don’t worry swtor subscribers we still get the best stuff for free and a head start on the new marketplace. Oh by the by this patch also includes a new zone to explore and the assassin droid HK-51 to acquire . So yeah, good times.

 

 

 

This just in (Or not) – Swtor goes f2p

 

Well it was bound to happen people, even the MMO juggernaut, World of Warcraft, has done it to a degree and so does now Star Wars: The Old Republic – Free to Play. In a recent report CEO of EA John Riccitiello said that the player numbers for swtor are not as high as they could be and the chief reason for this is that the game is using a subscription model. So as of the coming fall the old republic will give players subscription & free options to choose from. As we all know ‘free’ will be a stripped down version of subscription; but if you’re just looking for a good time without a lasting commitment, this might be the best thing to show up since sliced bread. More options are good anyway; I mean $15 isn’t expensive but it’s tough out there, and that chunk of change could be put to better use – like buying more Hot Pockets.

 

 

 

This just in (Or not) – Guild Wars 2 public beta goes live in three days

 

Well people in an direct response to the swtor free play weekend (well, I don’t have proof of this, but come on people it’s too freaken close to be coincidence) Arena Net is letting the masses play an open and public beta in three days’ time. A few cavitates however: 1) there is no guarantee to gain access to this or any future Beta Weekend Events accept for preordering the Guild Wars 2 game (which I’m going to do after I get done writing this). 2) You choice of races are limited (charr, human, or norn races respectively), which is a shame, I was looking forward to playing as an Asura (next time, gadget, next time). Other than that, the only limitations you’ll have is your own imagination and your ability to stay awake after your 18th hour of straight playing.

 

 

 

 

This just in (Or not) – Star Wars the Old Republic goes FTP (for the weekend)

 

Ah Star Wars the Old Republic, I remember the betas and release like it was yesterday… Well I’m glad to say that the game has performed as well as I predicted (and seriously fokes, when BioWare puts their name on something you know it’s good). Now they are offering those still undecided a chance to change the face of the galaxy with their characters for free up until the 23th. That right it is another free weekend that certain MMOs like to do in hopes to get more players on board with their game – only this time its Star Wars and that’s a big deal people. Trust me, as a fan and a player you won’t regret one moment of the planet hopping, ship battles, rancor busting, story driven, PvP, cantina fueled, adventures you’ll undoubtingly have. Oh, by the by, check out their new site layout – doesn’t hurt to be acclimated.

 

 

 

What Santa brought me (Mini Game Review) – Star Wars: The Old Republic

 

We have come to the end my friends, the last gift I’ll feature here (somewhat). Oh sure I got plenty more things from Santa and various others, but they’re decidedly less cool than what I’ve shown already. Does anyone really want me to review socks my mom gave me? No, I didn’t think so. So on that note – Star Wars: The Old Republic. Yeah, since I already reviewed it, there’s no reason to have a Mini Game Review; that would be completely pointless.  So click on the link here (in case you missed the review the first time) to see what I thought of the game (hint: It’s good). So thanks again for reading these following segments, hopefully these synopsizes not only entertained but made you want to buy something cool and awesome – or at least put them in your Christmas list for this year.
