So here is an interesting question that has been theorized before. What if SWTOR had a first-person mode? It worked for Elder Scrolls, right? If SWTOR had a fully fleshed out first-person mode, there would likely be a big market for it. Many current players have expressed they would enjoy it. Still others have said they don’t care much for first-person so the best solution would be a mode that you can toggle on and off. Best of both worlds – those who like it can do it and those who don’t won’t be bothered with it. This begs the question, “What would it look like?” and while we can’t be certain since it has not been done, one player has created a video to give us a general idea of what it might look like and we think it’s pretty cool. Order of Draki has this video below that demonstrates what a first-person…
It has been ages since we last did a TOR TV column, but there haven’t really been that many fan movies for SWTOR for a while either. Here is one that court our eye though. A trailer for Star Wars: The old Republic – Knights Of The Fallen Empire, mixed with the soundtrack from Star Wars: The Force Awakening. Something that just had to be done! Great little video. Good timing on the dialogue, and the music fits nicely with key points in the trailer, the end in particular had a really nice feel. Good job Tim Skijwalker Check it out: I have been playing the expansion for a week now and holy hell it deserves a trailer! i just had to make this! going back to SWTOR one last time!
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 bug would trap you inside the ship, putting you into other people’s ships and you could not escape until later when they released a patch….
Do you want to know how to increase your speeder to 200% speed? This video has all the answers (and a lot of laughs). Sometimes you just have to take a break from all the seriousness and give yourself a good chuckle. That’s really what playing games should be all about in the first place- having fun. Sometimes we get so caught up in game objectives and goals that we forget to have some fun. Videos like this are a good little reminder to take time to smile each day. Have you seen anything fun, silly or fan-created about SWTOR that you want to share with us? Let us know in the comments!
We haven’t done this column for a while, so I thought it was time to do one again. There is a lot of great SWTOR videos being made since the latest game update: Shadows of Revan, and it will be appropriate for us to share them with you guys. This is the latest video from KranitokoGames were how openes 24x Apprentice’s Shadow Packs. It’s a long video, and maby longer then it should be, but still a fun view. If you go to Youtube, you can use the skip button and skip the most of the intro, but you will then miss the chance to win stuff, and you want to go win stuff. So watch it, and comment on his video. Anyways… Check it out: A little late than it usually is, the latest pack opening video is here, with special guest R3DN4 (from the Ootinicast) being in the pack intro!
Youtube user EggsGamerTag has created a very cool House of Cards SWTOR intro that we just had to share with you. If you are not familiar with House of Cards, you are missing out. The show is an American political drama television series, developed and produced by Beau Willimon. It is an adaptation of BBC’s mini-series of the same name and is based on the novel by Michael Dobbs. The entire first season, thirteen episodes, premiered on February 1, 2013, on the streaming service Netflix. A second season of thirteen episodes premiered on February 14, 2014. On February 4, 2014, ten days prior to the release of the second season, Netflix announced that the show had been renewed for a third season, which will be released on February 27, 2015. For some reason, it also goes really well with Star Wars: The old Republic. Check it out yourself:

Youtube user Kid Lee has posted an extremely interesting video about how much the game has changed since the original SWToR beta. He provides video and screenshots to demonstrate the features that never made it into the game. While one can only speculate why these elements never made it to the game, it’s certainly interesting to see what got left out.
