Cory Butler tweeted a new pod racer

Cory Butler tweeted a photo of a new pod racer. The art assets used for the floor are new, and look a lot like you’d expect a racing circuit’s track to look like. A few data minings ago, we found some data that seemed to be something like podracing tracks with boost pads. Could it be true?! Here is the new ride: pic.twitter.com/aBB1cPIAga — Cory Butler (@BlazeofCory) July 25, 2013

BioWare Staff Show SWTOR Dedication

How do you show dedication to something you really care about or something that has made a big impact on your life?
