Yeah, I'm cranky. That's kinda the point...

I’m toast.

This from Gabe over at Penny Arcade about SWTOR…

“I don’t want to drill down into too much little stuff about the game but there is one feature I have to tell you about because I think it is really cool. If someone in your party is off grabbing quests while you’re selling junk at a vendor you would have to wait for them to share the quest with you later in any other game. In SW:TOR you get a little message that someone in your party is taking a quest and do you want to join via holoprojector. The first time I saw this I actually said out loud “Shit yeah I want to join via holoprojector!” and sure enough your character appears there in all his or her shimmering blue glory. You can interact with the NPC right alongside your partner. It’s a little touch but believe me when I tell you the game is full of smart little bits like this.”

Gabe’s in the Friends and Family Beta for the game and he gave some of his other impressions over here…


  1. I found it to be a pretty honest impression of the game, and was very reassuring to me. Can you imaging the alt-itis people will have with this game? Still really looking forward to it.

  2. I am already 99.91% sure I am going to play it when it comes out, but this made me feel better about the game and probably moved it up to 99.97%.
