Well I don’t know about you, but I am completely overwhelmed with the release of information today! First we had the embargo dropped and we were flooded with information from the Fan Site Summit #2. Then we had so much released on the official SWTOR.com web that I don’t know where to begin.
Roxanne couldn’t make it this episode, but we got Larry Everett (The Republic, Massively) to fill the third seat, which was great when we started our retrospective talk about following SWTOR because he’s been tracking this game since it was just a twinkle in BioWare’s eye. Bonus: three-minute blooper reel where Kathy cannot get through the outro.

It’s the release date episode! We each recount our stories of where we were and how we found out, as people do for significant events such as the JFK assassination or the Space Shuttle tragedy. Wildly inappropriate.
