Apologies for the delay on getting these pictures up. We took over 400 and not only did we have to sort through them all, we had to revert to sneaker net to actually get them delivered. Damn you SD cards! We got a lot of great pics from the show as well as the Bioware Meet-N-Greet. Enjoy!Tags: Bioware, Daniel Erickson, David Bass, Eric Campbell, Gabe Amatangelo, James Ohlen, PAX, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Stephen Reid, SWTOR, TOR

TotalBiscuit aka “The Cynical Brit” (CynicalBrit.com), has taken to the tubes to address the raging debate between the Guild Wars 2 fanboys and the Star Wars: The Old Republic fanboys. Over the past month or so, with the launch of TOR getting much closer, the debate has reached a new frenzy. Trolls from both sides are attacking each other on message forums, YouTube comments, Twitter, Reddit and more. We’ve even had few drop by here to give their two cents of QQ on the matter.Tags: Guild Wars 2, MMOs, Star Wars: The Old Republic, SWTOR, The Cynical Brit, TOR, TotalBiscuit, video

“Good luck Dariz!” Gage yelled as he pulled his helm closed and switched to electronic communication. Dariz returned a thumbs-up and lead his squad out of the landing zone. As was planned Gage’s squad took positions at the edge of the clearing to guard the LZ from any Imperial ground forces who may try to prevent the landing. It was late afternoon and the sky was grey and overcast as if it might storm at any time. The landscape was that of gentle rolling hills in a forest of giant pines. Likely the only reason there was a clearing in this spot was that it was originally cleared when they built the power plant to land cargo freighters. The troopers were breathing the local air reserving the filters they may need if the situation changed. Smoke or even poison would be detected in a micro second and the vents on the trooper’s armor would close and filtration would begin. Gage took a deep breath and smiled to himself as he smelled to pines and other vegetation. Besides a landing for a reconnaissance mission on a planet with so much volcanic activity that the sulfur in the air almost burned out their filtration systems, V-22 had not been off of the carrier for nearly six months.Tags: fan fiction, Lost Tales of the Old Republic, Star Wars: The Old Republic, SWTOR, Timothy E.

My last report offered some brief first impressions on the developing behemoth known as The Old Republic. Today I offer further insight into both TOR itself and the great people – players, community sites, and Bioware – who made a lasting impact on my already positive outlook of the game and community. After this weekend, I have absolutely no doubt that Star Wars: The Old Republic will have a massive impact on players, the genre, and to be honest…the industry as a whole. I believe TOR will quickly become not only a gaming, but a cultural phenomenon.Tags: Ask A Jedi, Bioware, Companions, Corellian Run Radio, Crafting, Daniel Erickson, Darth Hater, Eric Campbell, Galactic Republic, Operations, PAX, PvP, Republic Trooper, Sith Empire, Star Wars: The Old Republic, SWTOR, TOR, TOR Wars, Trooper, Warzones
Day one of PAX would not be complete without some intel from the ground, so we hit the convention early on a beautiful Seattle day to see what we could see; we were not disappointed. After a long morning of seeing a few titles that I’ve had my eye on for a bit we settled into a 2 PM play session for our first ever hands-on with TOR and, more importantly, the Trooper. In total four of us got time in-game and while three of us were extremely impressed, the fourth stated that “it seems good so far”.Tags: Bioware, PAX, Republic Trooper, Star Wars: The Old Republic, SWTOR, TOR, Trooper
