When the weekend rolls around it’s time to relax, grab a cold one, sit down with your squad, and catch up on some scuttlebutt. RT is here to provide you with some things that are worthy of talking about over a good pint with a few friends.

I Think I’m Coming Down With Something…
For all the clamoring that many of us are doing for more varied content in The Old Republic, BioWare pulled a fast one on us by ninjaing in some clandestine content packaged with Legacy patch 1.2. The Rakghoul Pandemic event has invaded galaxies everywhere, but luckily has not been able to escape the planet of Tatooine as of yet, unless you count the hundreds of individuals standing around like lemmings on the Fleet to complete one of the silliest quest I’ve ever seen. The event as a whole is excellent though, and I’ve found myself returning to it every day since the event started. If you haven’t started the event yet, head over to MMO-Mechanics.com for a clear and concise guide detailing the event. Hurry, as the event is scheduled to end April 24th!
Roll The Dice And Take Your Chances
Sites that report and break down the news are great, but the best articles out there are those that apply critical thinking to get the creative juices of players and developers rolling. I’m outwardly vocal about how much The Old Republic needs more varied content, and the inclusion of mini-games is just one of several ways to do that. Sam Tabrizi over at Force Junkies offers a great list of suggestions for inclusion in TORs mini-game future. Give it a read here, and I’ll race swoops with whoever thinks they’ve got the licks to take me on!
Sometimes A Grim Dawn Is A Blessing!
Some people just play MMOs, but some of us are gamers. Video games, table-top games, board games, sports…I just love games, and I know I’m not alone. Over the years some games just always find their way back onto my hard drive and, like Norm coming back to Cheers, Titan Quest has never found itself gone from my HDD for any great stretch.
So when I heard that Grim Dawn—the unofficial successor to Titan Quest—was looking for some extra funding at Kickstarter the title became the first project I’ve ever backed. If you are a fan of the ARPG genre pioneered by Diablo I encourage you to give Grim Dawn a serious look and, if you like what you see, help the great folks over at Crate Entertainment by pledging a bit of your coin to make Grim Dawn a reality.
