Join the discussion about this episode here.

It’s just the home team this week, which is probably good because there was a TON of new information to cover.  We’re excited that companions are back to the forefront again – companions in flashpoint player slots and dev tracker talk about companion romances.  We also find out Carla won’t save seats in a movie theater.

Community Buzz

Romancing Companions vs. Moral Choices. Randy Begel says it’s more nuanced than Light Side/Dark Side points, but yeah, your companion isn’t going to sleep with you if you piss her/him off.

Socialization in MMOs. Will players new to MMOs find a home in a world filled with jaded veterans?
