The Age-Old Question

 by Noah

I have a confession to make.  It’s not the most exciting or embarrassing revelation, but it rings true on this forum.  My problem: I know $%^&-all about computers.  I mean, I’ve learned enough to keep things running and delete my porn history (sorry for how long that took me to figure out, dad), but the actual riddle of the hardware is beyond me.  That little system requirements box means I’ve gotta take notes in the middle of Best Buy to figure out whether or not I can run something – usually I leave it up to my more technically competent friends to give me the final word.  And thanks to my luddite anxiety, I’ve failed to keep my PC running up to speed.  By my calculations, the PC I’m working on right now is just over 7 years old.  My computer’s so old – how old is it, Noah? – it’s so old that every time I boot it up it tells me to get a haircut and sits me down to talk about the war.  My computer’s so old that I’m pretty sure it won’t even be able to run SW:TOR.

Photo-receptor Focus on: SWTOR Post Beta

So, I spent hours beta testing SWTOR with about a zillion other people this past weekend.  I had a lot of questions I needed to answer.  First and foremost, had I made the right choice to leave World of Warcraft?  I’d had some concerns about that.  I’ve been in WoW for five years, after all, but I already canceled my WoW subscription. I even ordered the SWTOR Collector’s Edition.  I’m so relieved and pleased to be able to say that  I’m so glad I did!

Entrance to the Fansite Summit was well-guarded.

Sunny Ravencourt and Radicool from Sunny’s Diner join us to discuss our Fansite Summit experience, plus we are slowly figuring out that Sunny might be a hardcore player in casual  clothing. We also learn that Georg is a playful, vengeful god and that just makes us like him more.

FACT OR FICTION: Can you pick out the confirmed fact from the tall tales? This week’s trick challenge ends unexpectedly, but still fulfills its main purpose of delivering fake facts.

EA CEO John Riccitiello spoke at the 2011 William & Blair Stock Growth Conference this morning, saying that the testing for Star Wars: The Old Republic will be in “high scale beta” in the end of June.  He also noted that release date will be dependent on the results of that testing.  Full transcript of the call here.

Ask A Jedi reports on the call here.  Thanks to Steve Thompson for the Facebook chat heads up!

Much excitement and debate on the official forums here.  Stephen Reid advises fans not to get too excited here, here, and  here.
