PTS Testing?

This week Carla is joined by Maer as they talk about BioWare’s podcast, 1.3 reveals, PTS testing and more.  The audio quality is not our normal high quality, but will return to normal as soon as Carla’s computer is replaced.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to  Deirdre and her family in her time of loss.   Her grandfather just passed away.

 SITH OR JEDI:  Test of the Bad Cashier

You have just finished your grocery shopping and find a line to check out that isn’t too long.  You start to unload your groceries on the belt and had the cashier your earth-friendly bags to load the groceries in and the cashier makes this heavy exhale in disgust and takes the bags.   You smile and tried to make light chatter as you grouped my items for bagging.  Every time you would move an item she would over-react as if you interrupted her when you weren’t even close to the items she was working with.  No matter what you did to lighten the mood, she wasn’t having any of it.

Do you:

1. You pay for your groceries and tell the cashier to have a wonderful day as you leave.

2. You ignore the situation, pay for your groceries and leave.

3. You pay for your groceries, sarcastically tell the cashier to have a nice day then go find a supervisor and tell her how horrible the cashier was.

  1. I gave your cast a listen after Torwars suggested it but this…wow. Lots of rambing about how you dont understand something and trying to twist the wording of morph? I paused it and I dont know if Ill get back to listening it just seems pointless?

  2. @Nightwill Thanks for giving the show a listen and we appreciate the comments!

    While it does seem like the changing of the social armor to fit the other armor types is pretty straightforward…I think Carla was just expressing the feelings that it won’t transfer all the set bonuses and thus making the the whole point to getting the new armor pointless. Honestly, I don’t know why Bioware cannot just other three choices of the social armor. Why do they need to program it to change at all? Yes, there is some of the moddable armor from the Rakghoul Event that would need to change, but why not bring back the little Jawa and have it a one time offer to exchange the armor. In fact, I have some orange armor sets saved for companions and I will be upset if that were to change or “morph” to the armor rating of my character.

    What does everyone else feel about the armor change/morph?

    All comments and opinions are welcomed 🙂

  3. “Most of the people who wear a slave outfit are men on a female character, because they only play female characters…..”

    hahahahahah…..oh wait

    (looks at self and notices I’m a guy who plays female characters and want the heavy armor slave girl outfit)

    D’OH! I resemble that remark! 🙂

    (no hard feelings, it’s funny and true)
