First, happy New Year everybody!

Now, on New Year’s Eve, I went to my regular watering hole in town, and they had karaoke. So at some point someone was singing Californication by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and it blew my mind when I read the text along. (Almost) everyone that knows that song, knows that “Space may be the final frontier, but it’s made in a Hollywood basement” is a direct reference to Star Trek. The next line “Cobain can you hear the spheres singing songs off station to station” is of course about Kurt Cobain, but the line after that flabbergasted me completely; “And Alderaan’s not far away, it’s Californication.” Until this past Sunday I never heard this Star Wars reference in that song, and now I will never not hear it either. In today’s column, I am going to talk about cultural references regarding Star Wars The Old Republic.

Has it hit you yet? We have a game! After a fruitful and eventful Early Game Access, the game has officially launched, and apparently more than 1.5 million people were already playing before it was even officially out! Star Wars: The Old Republic is here, and it seems that it is here to stay! I am already addicted immensely, and it is hard to write anything besides first game experiences really, but I have to try. So, I am going to analyze and give my opinion on James Ohlen’s blogpost from last week in which he laid out the plans BioWare has for The Old Republic

First off, sorry for giving you your dose of triple T a bit late this week, it has been hectic for me personally. Basically, after a weekend in London, my body decided to shut down and disallow me the chance to write this.

Regardless, this past Tuesday early access to Star Wars: The Old Republic started. And with this, a LOT of people have started to complain about not getting in. I will give you my take on it, and I sincerely hope you agree with me in the end.
