Wonderful video describing companions and what they bring to the game. From combat to crafting to romance arcs. Looking at the game play footage shows how much the game has improved.
Daniel Erickson’s Gamespot interview gave us our first look at the group mission on Alderaan at E3. This week, BioWare prettied up the content to give it a more cinematic presentation in “Alderaan Highlights,” a video introduced by Dallas Dickinson. It’s interesting to note that this more cinematic version is pretty dang close to how it felt watching the actual gameplay — very exciting to think of that movie-like experience in an MMO. We were also pleased to hear Dallas say that this mission is one of “countless” group missions. With flashpoints, raids, and plenty of additional group content, BioWare is making good on its promise to give the fans a fully-fleshed out MMO with more than a dash of RPG.

E3 was a doozy! Our eyeballs are still bleeding from watching and reading all the coverage. You sure won’t hear us complaining that there wasn’t enough new info – as is evidenced by the length of this episode. Hard to believe that this is only one week of news. This week we talk about, well, everything. We’re also very excited to receive our first call-in questions.
Gamespot caught Daniel Erickson on the show floor and grilled him about many aspects of SWTOR. Highlights:
- Open beta is probably not going to happen because the game is too big to allow everyone who wants to play in.
- Lightsabers will be fairly hard to get, won’t be dropping easily as loot.
