Goodbye SWTOR – Hello Again Waaagh!

I’ve finally waved goodbye to SWTOR – I gave it a good run but there was just nothing to keep me playing. I found the storylines very shallow, the regions were bland and empty and no matter which class you … Continue reading

In A Galaxy Far Far Away – It’s Very Very Boring

I’ve given up on  SWTOR – I gave it my best shot but it’s just another generic MMO with a Star Wars shell. I can’t find anything in it to keep my interest and it got to the stage where … Continue reading

Cannot See Target

After many weeks of hopping from one character to the next I finally got to the end of a chapter 1 with my Imperial Agent. The quest was Defender of the Empire and I had to defeat Darth Jadus with my sniper … Continue reading

SWTOR: A Love Story

While playing my Imperial Agent I put my James Bond head on (with a mercenary bent) and so far I’ve bedded two women – or so I assume. The flirt was on, the screen went black and we were then … Continue reading

No Passion For SWTOR

While off work last week I played a lot of SWTOR  and it dawned on me that I’m really not all that fussed about the SW worlds. I played WAR with many years of GW gaming behind me and I … Continue reading

Be Careful What You Wish For

I believe I mentioned that I would like to spend less time at work and more time gaming – this weekend I ended up with a slipped disk. Ouch! SWTOR still consumes my waking, and now pain-filled, hours and I’m still with … Continue reading
