Dimbo's Radar - Week 8
My Goal with this News letter is to let you know what’s on my Radar this week in SWTOR. I hope you enjoy my thoughts.
1) Question: what don’t the Darth Hater guys do well? Answer: Unknown at this time.
This weeks Dev tracker linked via darthhater.com http://darthhater.com/2011/06/30/devtracker-highlights-for-the-week-of-june-30-2011/ I’m starting to think the devs are just as frustrated about the game not being out as us (I will explain more tonight on the Galactic Underground) But the best one I thought was the one by Georg Zoeller saying about server firsts “I don’t see us rewarding people for rushing through the story either.”
2) This week’s Facebook image of the week via askajedi.com http://www.askajedi.com/2011/06/29/facebook-image-of-the-week-18/ shows a Bounty Hunter talking with Nem’ro the Hutt on the planet Hutta (click to enlarge)
3) After the Friday update which we will get too soon™ Twitter was a buzz about the lack of consular information, the fact that this is the 2nd armor Bounty hunter video and the consular is still getting no love. Article written by our loved Kristen Archer via torwars.com http://torwars.com/2011/07/01/consular-love-is-on-the-way-soontm/ so like everything else consular information to be released soon™ BTW for those of you keeping count that’s Imperial agent love coming soon™ (b/c they aren’t in any of the blur trailers) and said Consular info
4) And don’t close your Darth Hater browser just yet, as they always do their latest video dissection on the new Bounty hunter Video found here http://darthhater.com/media/gallery/bounty-hunter-progression-video-dissection/
5) A buddy of mine on the SWTOR.com forums by the name of TheDarkKnight keeps a thread found here http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=300223 entitled “Information gathered on The Old Republic so far!” he doesn’t a great job of keeping all of the confirmed information up to date and links to articles and sources so you can always read the interviews etc. for yourself. Check it out!
6) And now for the Friday update: This weeks Friday update was, another, Bounty Hunter armor progression video, done in the new style we see the armor and fighting styles of both advanced classes http://www.swtor.com/media/trailers/bounty-hunter-character-progression The biggest things I took out of this were that the bounty hunter dual wields really really really small guns (they looked like the noisy cricket from MIB) and that the everyone should play the Bounty hunter because they can one shot Jedi Knights AND Troopers after they’ve just killed a mob of 7 guys……….. /facepalm Bioware
7) Oh and I almost forgot tune in tonight to the Galactic Underground on Bootleg Radio to hear a special announcement from ME! I’m excited to share my new project with you guys and it will be launching soon. NOT soon™, by soon I mean next week.
