Flashpoints! Release rumors! The past two weeks have SWTOR have been packed to the brim with news of game mechanics and speculation about the release of The Old Republic. We sit down and discuss the video for Taral V, as well as both of the blogs featuring world designer Jesse Sky. We also dive into the release rumor fiasco that crept up shortly after episode 30, and try and figure out if any of it matters at all. The show finishes up with comment from listener Matt Gregory about support roles. As always, we would love to hear your thoughts by joining the discussion of this episode on the FORUMS!
We want to offer a big thanks to Alan, Toxix89, Blackferne, Galindran, Kyle Kramek, The Fish76, NBFDLunitik, and TBills for taking the time to leave us reviews on iTunes.
Music for this show was provided by General Fuzz. Check out more of his work at generalfuzz.net
