We’ve already talked about New York Comic Con on the TORWars and Mos Eisley Radio podcasts, but we still manage to find a few topics that we didn’t cover. We are joined by Virtek (Damien) from TORSyndicate and Guild Umbra to get his NYCC impressions and later by our very own Jason Taylor to discuss Dark/Light impact on gameplay. We also can’t help talking about the new Kung Fu Panda expac.
More Show Notes, all NYCC coverage, and Comments after the jump.
FACT OR FICTION: Can you pick out the confirmed fact from the tall tales? This week’s challenge concerns Dark side corruption, species/class combos, dungeon finders. Here’s the link to the post of awesomeness where TheDarkKnight has gathered up all SWTOR info.

CRR Coverage of NYCC
In case you missed it, we have articles, pictures, guest appearances, and videos of our NYCC coverage:
This was tons of fun!! Thanks so much for letting me join you on the show!!
It turned out nicely, I say.
No doubt we gotta hang again if any of you hit another Con!
Hello ladies, just want to say Thank you for another great show. I was at NYCC and seen Carla and Roxanne, I tried to say hi to gals but it was just so packed it was hard getting to u. But I do want to say that I listen to CRR every time a new comes out. Also I look forward to playing in game with you ladies when game comes out. I am actually part of MERC as well
@JediKaiden Aw, I’m sorry you didn’t get a chance to say hello. It would have been Roxanne and me, not Carla, at NYCC, though. Looking forward to playing in game with MERC! Less than two months now….
@Virtek Glad you could join us, it was really nice to have you on the show. 🙂
I’m sorry I mix your names up. When I saw you too at NYCC, I was like oh wow that Kathy and Roxanne, I have been a big fan of CRR for a longtime. but I am rambling now.I would like to say Thank you for everything You ladies are doing at CRR
No need to apologize! And thank you for listening, seriously. We really appreciate the support. 🙂
Hope we get a chance to actually meet at a future con!
@Virtek It was great to put a voice with the name! Great show man!
@Carla, Kathy and Roxanne Thanks for letting me be on the show. I loved it!
Just to inform y’all, WoW is going to hit lvl cap of 100 so 2 more x-pacs AFTER mist of pandaria lol. I love wow and will probably at least try pandaria but OMG cant wait for swtor
leaked timeline been accurate so far
@Scaevola Thanks for the comment 🙂
I think WoW is amazing for everything it has done and how long it has done it. I think that how far they go depends on how Mist of Pandaria does. I do agree that level cap 100 seems like a logical goal, but if the numbers are not there or if they move on “Titan” sooner that might change a lot.
All that said, I’m like you…bring on SWTOR!!
Hey another great show.
I’m glad you all like the bounty hunter image, high Praise indeed if Roxanne was impressed 😀 but now i feel guilty that i didn’t get Corellian Run Radio in the Image!!
Hopefully i will get to one of the E3/Pax/Eurogamer and meet some of the Community Podcasters at some point in the future. I will come over to talk to you 🙂
Keep up the great work
That was very neat to find out you are a CRR listener. I’m glad I liked the picture before I knew that hehe. Ah well, it would have been incredibly fantastic to have our name inscribed in the background, but it’s the thought that counts, right? 😉
Fantastic work, and thanks for stopping by. Yes, definitely, say hello if you see us at one of these events!
In both Kotor 1 there were no abilities linked to Dark or Light, the force cost was just different depending on your dark or light and then you got a special bonus to force points or hit points or whatever when you mastered either side.
In Kotor 2 there was a single ability gained when you faced the council, irc, that was based on your dark or light decision in that one instance. Otherwise, once again, every ability was available just with a different force cost.
I have played both of those games many, many, many times.
I love your podcast, and Carla, I will see you in the guild for the old folks.
