Do you love free comics? As part of their two-year-anniversary promotion, Dark Horse Comics gave away 1 million free comics. How awesome is that?
Were you able to snag some of these free comics for yourself? If so, we want to hear about it. What titles did you get?
As they state on their blog, “As part of the celebration of the second year of the company’s digital initiative and proprietary storefront, fifty free single-issue comics were made available for only forty-eight hours. In that time, thousands of fans took advantage of the offer and downloaded their favorite Dark Horse titles, to the tune of a million copies!”
This is really a fantastic example of the growing interest in digital comics as a new way to enjoy some classic comics and new releases alike. If you’re new to digital comics, you will have to try it out for yourself. While nothing quite beats the feel and smell of a nice paper comic right in your hands, digital comics allow you to read your...
Many people, especially subscribers, have been upset about patch 2.1. People are mad about this patch being a cartel market update only. But players are also forgetting that BioWare already announced how the coming two games updates is planed out. Still Cory Butler found it necessary to post on the official forums explaining what the developers have in mind. Check it out below:
Howdy, folks. Cory Butler here to follow-up on some of your concerns that have been surfacing in the forums and on social media sites around Game Update 2.1: Customization. First, it’s important to know that 2.1 will not affect the cadence of our game update schedule. 2.1 was the second half of our Cartel Market implementation plan. So, do not expect to see this type of Market-driven update on a regular basis. This release was comprised almost entirely of cosmetic options that have no impact on combat balance or gameplay. Vanity modifications are the kinds of things, in general, that...
Great news! BioWare just announced that the Gree Event will return next week. I guess it’s time to build a ton of rep whit them again and get them sweet sweet items. Here is the story:

Eric Musco has an interesting forum post today, on how BioWare handles feedback. Basically he is saying that SWTOR developers are indeed listening to what the community have to day, but it’s not easy to implement what the players want, or do not want. There is a technically part to the game, and let’s also be honest, most people on the official forums are insane!
Reading through the forum thread started by Eric, I can’t stop laughing. Many people are now writing stuff like “Well, since you said you do listen…ANSWER ME THIS!” and ask a random concern that they believe is the biggest problem of SWTOR right now. I would shoot myself if I was a moderator over at swtor.com. I guess...
Patch notes are up. We were almost right yesterday. It was a bug fix with he crystals. People were more or less printing money off this bug, as you could vendor crystals that you could get for “free”. No event unfortunately. Check out the patch notes below:
2.1.0b Patch Notes
White Color Crystals can no longer be Reverse Engineered.
The vendor value of Color Crystals that are tracked via the Collections UI has been...
BioWare will be taking down the servers tomorrow to preform maintenance as well as deploying a new patch. Patch notes are not available yet, but giving the developer responses on the forums, it’s probably some kind of exploits / bug thing they need to fix fast. Might have to do with the collections crystals “bug” (mainly because I don’t know if it’s considered a bug) where you can essentially get free crystals from the cartel market.
On the other hand.. Patching up to a weekend, might be because of an event? Below are what we know:
On May 17th, all game servers will be unavailable as we perform maintenance. Patch 2.1.0b will be implemented during this downtime. Details are as...
Youtube user TraiIerRedux made this awesome, awesome, AWESOME ( No… this is good! ) mashup trailer of SWTOR and J.J. Abrams Star Trek into the Darkness. I bet you have seen so many mashups of the cinematic trailer mashups with Star Wars the old republic by now, so you are thinking – “no more, I’m going to puke!”… But trust me. This one is worth it! At least I still have a hard on after watching it, and you ask my wife, that don’t come easy no more.
Stuff like this Makes me 10x more excited for a J. J. Abrams helmed Episode VII.
If you’ve had any experience in the new SWTOR armor dyes found in the Cartel Market, then you might already know there are some issues with getting the colors you want. The dye modules are preset combinations, for one thing, and you have to be lucky and get the colors you’re looking for, or you have to keep buying until you get what you want.
There’s a real gamble to get the Primary/Secondary/Third color settings that you want, especially on the first go at it and some players are not happy about it at all. They feel it’s a ploy from BioWare to get more money.
Why, when people are already willing to spend real cash in the Cartel Market, don’t they just make it possible to buy what you want when you want it? Some players are...
BioWaer is pushing a small client side only patch today. So don’t panic if you have to do a small download when you launch the game. The patch is here to fix an issue windows XP users are having when they start the game. Again, This is a client side only patch. No server downtime is needed.
Corrected an issue that prevented many players with Windows XP from launching the...
