Will Somebody Make a Star Wars Slot Machine Please?

Posted by on Apr 1, 2015 in Stuff | 0 comments

Movie themed slots are nothing new in the online gaming industry. Software companies and casinos alike are constantly trying to innovate by making partnerships with famous movie / video game companies for exclusive rights to famous characters and brands. These partnerships are great for players as well since they will get to enjoy playing their favorite slots within a well defined and well beloved movie universe. Star Wars is definitely one of the largest and most beloved sci-fi properties out there and with a legacy that spends decades you would be hard pressed not to want to play a casino game which is using that setting and characters. The first to capitalize on the idea was IGT Slots – the largest slots provider in the US for land based casinos. They have been operating for a very long time and have a huge selection of available games with themes that range from your regular cherry / aces slots to, well, Star Wars. The game itself is quite engaging and features all the famous...

SWTOR YuGiOh? Yes, It’s a Thing

Posted by on Apr 1, 2015 in fan art, SWTOR | 0 comments

YuGiOh “Peril on Makeb” SWTOR Fan We found another cool SWTOR fan-inspired creation. shyherdier “got bored” and made a mini set of YuGiOh based SWTOR cards. They are really creative and some of them are quite funny. I’d love to see this fan make a full deck of these. If you could add any cards to this set, what would they be? What would they say? SWTOR The Trading Card Game could totally be a thing (hey, it worked for Wow, sort of). So, what do you think? The art is pretty awesome. If you ask me, I’d play this game. Inspired by the user above, cuckingfomputer made this entire deck. It’s worth taking the time to read through all of the cards. Inquisitor Starter...

TOR TV: The Appropriate Way to Respond to a Game-breaking Bug

Posted by on Apr 1, 2015 in bug, TOR TV | 0 comments

  The Haunted Ship Here’s a fun little bug from 2012 that some of you might remember. “As it turns out, there’s a bug that’s existed in Star Wars: The Old Republic for some time now. If you’re a Jedi and try getting onto a Smuggler’s ship, you’ll be trapped in this ghost instance where you can’t leave or do anything, but everyone can still see you. You’re basically a ghost, haunting peoples’ ships. Annoying at the time, but hilarious in retrospect.” We find this entertaining for two reasons. One: it reminds us of the early days of SWTOR and two: we love seeing fun videos of people being silly and making the most of a bad situation. For those of you who remember, this...

TOR Databases + Site Framework Kickstarter for TORCommunity (to replace Torhead + AMR)

Posted by on Mar 31, 2015 in fan sites | 0 comments

TORCommunity is creating the framework to power SWTOR databases to replace Torhead and Ask Mr. Robot. They need your help to fund them! Even above and beyond the 120 backers who have funded nearly $5,000 so far, we also have people who are stepping up to volunteer their services such as translating to different languages. This is something I have always found impressive about the SWTOR community over all these years. You all step up when needed to try to make the community better. Sure, there are bad apples in every bunch but overall, the community really cares about the game, about Star Wars and about one another and it shows in the volunteerism many show in times like these. One thing the community has oft complained about is...

New Dev Post – 3.2 PTS Feedback Communiqué

Posted by on Mar 31, 2015 in forum post | 0 comments

System Designer John Jarynowski took on the forums to address some of the Patch 3.2 feedback regarding class balance. Fine members of the galactic community, Just wanted to pop up and thank you all for the continued feedback. We are testing many of your ideas presently. Even if some of these changes do not come around in this patch cycle, we are archiving community perspectives/ideas for future updates. To help curb some continued points of contention that I’ve seen, I’d like to address two particular areas: 1) Many of you are concerned about melee viability against bosses in various Flashpoints and Operations. We have all heard your cries, and I know that our Encounter Designers are actively assessing improvement strategies. That aside,...

Posted by on Mar 30, 2015 in armor | 0 comments

  Tait Watson posted an update from the public test servers. BioWare will be removing armor weight restrictions from the upcoming Outfit Designer. As we understand it, this will mean that light armor classes can now wear heavy armor etc in the outfit designer and heavy armor classes can wear light armor.

Could a Star Wars: Battlefront Novel Be in the works?

Posted by on Mar 29, 2015 in books, Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

The new paperback version of A New Dawn is on the verge of publication and it features a official timeline. This timeline gives you information about different types of media surrounding the Star Wars saga. There is an interesting note in this that shows a new novel is in development in addition to Aftermath and Dark Disciple. Many will think that the Battlefront title is only referring to the upcoming video game, you should know that television shows are only listed as television shows and movies are listed separately. Based on these terms, a conclusion has been drawn that a video game should be listed under its own separate banner as well, but this is not labeled as such. There is no definite answer yet, but we think a new novel is sure...

‘Star Wars: Battlefront’ 5 Features Fans Want Most: 2015 Release Date, Gameplay, Story, DLC And More

Posted by on Mar 28, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

As many of you know,  Star Wars: Battlefront  was confirmed to be showcased at Star Wars Celebration on  between April 16th and 19th of this year by EA and DICE. Fans don’t have very much information at all about Star Wars: Battlefront but let’s go over some aspects the game needs to have to really wow the crowd. The Star Wars: Battlefront legacy is notorious for being a first person shooter style game and nothing else. Many longtime players will remember that both “Battlefield” games did offer players a choice between first and third person shooters. Many fans enjoy the option of this style of gameplay, so we think creators definitely need to include this in the game. Fans of Star Wars: Battlefront typically love the multiplayer gameplay...

SWTOR Stays on Pace for Most Played PC Games in February 2015

Posted by on Mar 26, 2015 in SWTOR | 0 comments

Raptr’s newest most played list for PC games is out and we see SWTOR still holding strong in the Top 20 at position 15. February’s Most Played PC Games list looked pretty similar to January’s but with one big addition: Blizzard’s MOBA contender Heroes of the Storm! The top 5 games has remained pretty much the same over the past few months but something else that has remained consistent is SWTOR on the list. We’ve seen some other games move around here and there due to different factors. Battlefield 4 gained four spots in February, which is likely because of people preparing for the release of Hardline. Hearthstone lost 3 places and Dragon Age Inquisition lost a whopping 10 spaces on the list. ouch! Final Fantasy XIV and Guild...

SWTOR Outfit Designer Restrictions

  Tait Watson posted an update on the offocial forums regarding Outfit Designer restrictions. BioWaer is still mproving the Outfit Designer and will add in some of the requested features after 3.2 Outfit designer still obeys class/armor restrictions | 03.25.2015, 04:02 PM Hey everyone, We think having the Outfit Designer ignore armor weight restrictions is a great idea! We are actively exploring changing this now, and I’ll let you know as soon as I know anything else. I’ve also seen the mention of weapons and Companions being included in the Outfit Designer. Even though it may not seem like it, adding an Outfit Designer tab for Companions would effectively be creating a new system. Due to this we won’t be implementing one for 3.2,...

Star Wars: Battlefront Just a Month Away

Posted by on Mar 25, 2015 in Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

  Star Wars fans only have about a month to wait for the unveiling of Star Wars: Battlefront, quite possibly the most hotly anticipated Star Wars gaming title ever. While they will not be able to get their hands on the game just yet (the title is set for a December 2015 release), they will probably be able to feast their thirsty eyes on some in-game action and the hype-machine will be fed some new crumbs of information/details to keep its gears turning. Officially announced at last year’s E3, Star Wars: Battlefront has already offered a precious few glimpses into the virtual world that EA is hoping will lure scores and scores of players to the title, and everyone was quite impressed with what they saw. Starting April 16 though,...
