There was really no way around this, was it? Last weekend, Star Wars: The Old Republic had an open beta weekend. The announcement was like candy for the soul: alluring, but bad for the teeth. Of the soul. Yeah, I don’t know where I’m going with this either. Star Wars: The Old Republic is bad for the teeth of the soul, I guess.
Jasper and Jarenth, being the only two massive nerds enough to dive into a Star Wars game, devoted their entire Saturday night to playing this beta. Halfway in they were joined by two mystery people who won’t be named in this introduction segment, save for the tantalizing hint that one of them has already written about SWTOR at length. And they still wanted to play with us. I’m not really sure what that says about us* or them**, but there you have it.
Jasper is a big fan of the KoToR brand.Is the game still fun without the Ko part?
Jarenth compares The Old Republic to soul teeth and cookie cutters. What does that even mean? Maybe nothing at all.
* It means we’re awesome.
** It means they’re awesome, too.
