Last week in the video section we were introduced to the lyrical style of Richie Branson with the music video featuring his song, The Cold Republic. Having looked at many player generated videos featuring or highlighting SWTOR, Richie and the guys helping him produce the videos have created some very creatively unique music videos. This past week I got in touch with Richie and setup an informal Q&A.

HoloNet Links #31

We start off this week’s article with a bit of news from yesterday on the official game press release, after just about six weeks post-launch Star Wars: The Old Republic has sold over 2 million copies, with nearly 1.7 million of them as subscribers! That is just amazing to me. The article goes on to break down some of the “shocking” numbers reached at just past the one month marker:

  • Over 239 million in-game hours, this equals 332,000 months or roughly 27,000 years in-game time.
  • Over 20 billion NPCs killed (This includes the docile animals my nephew enjoys to target)
  • Over 148 billion credits spent (Most of my help in this was spending them on crew skills)

I don’t know about you, but to me those numbers are pretty hard to comprehend. All I know is that this game is beyond addictive and I just love it!

More links from the past week & of course some fun after the Jump… Continue reading »
