To all the SWTOR haters…

 

SWTOR Blog Banner/Begin Rant

There is a lot of hate for SWTOR. I’ve felt it and I’ve read it and I’ve become irritated by it. And the reasons for the hate vary; everything from the Cartel Market “ripping” people off to the content/game itself being bad or unplayable. Continue reading → To all the SWTOR haters…

To guild or not to guild, that is the question…

SWTOR Blog Banner

I’ve been playing SWTOR (off and on but mostly on) now since the beta and official release date in 2011. I suppose that kinda makes me a “veteran” because it’s the only game I’ve truly stuck to next to EQ (five years), WoW (two years) and Gears of War for about 2 years. Playing a game for that long gives you a certain “edge” that newcomers just won’t have. It also helps you to understand a few gaming “truths” that again, you can only truly understand through years of game play.  Continue reading → To guild or not to guild, that is the question…

Even the experienced can screw up

Boy I made a stupid rookie mistake last night when I was putting items on the GTN for trading. I put an item that was worth 37 million credits on sale for 3.7 million credits… lol

I’ve never done that before so it took a while for me to get over the silliness of it all but it made me take heed. On the flip side, someone got a nice little present from me last night 🙂

SPOILERS – DON’T READ IF YOU’RE AVOIDING THEM

Anti Reylo vs … Me?

I’ve started using Instagram as a way to connect with fellow Star Wars fans. One of the posts I made on Instagram seemed to really get up someone’s nose regarding the whole “Reylo” relationship that Kylo Ren and Rey fans are hoping will happen in The Last Jedi. I will reiterate that I AM not a supporter of either group in this – my support goes to the Star Wars fandom as a whole, not any particular group. It wasn’t my intention to do or say anything that would offend people but I guess if you post something, anything online you’re fair game for criticism whether you welcome it or not.

My Star Wars addiction knows no bounds it seems. I have now become a member of the Marvel website and I am subscribing to read their comics. I’ve actually always been a huge comic and manga fan so I am happy to be going back to my “roots” so-to-speak.

Anakin Skywalker vs Darth Vader

The inner conflict between light and dark is a constant theme used many times in the Star Wars universe. Why do we enjoy watching someone struggling with their “inner demons” so much? I think it’s because it’s much safer for us to navigate the darker side of the psyche with fictional characters.

In Anakin Skywalker’s story we are able to see how the inner conflict of one character can influence so many others; Padme, Obi-wan, and even the Jedi order itself. I have always revered the way Anakin suffered for so long without giving in until the conflict was finally too much to bear. Think about it. Whilst we may not face the same kind of struggles as Anakin, we are constantly exposed to situations in life where our choices influence not only our own paths but the paths of others. We are both Anakin and Vader every single day. From this post on Instagram. Image Credit.
