After a brief hiatus, I am back to playing The Old Republic. When a friend of mine linked me to an article reacting to the announcement of the expansion for The Old Republic: Rise of the Hutt Cartel, my interest was piqued. In addition to a new planet, higher level cap, etc., the expansion will introduce the long awaited “same-gender romances” which some players have been inquiring about since SWTOR launched. I was a little excited to say the least; would Nat’s Jedi Knight finally be able to romance the adorable apprentice, Kira Carsen?
I’m not huge on dropping statistical bombs on our readers, but we just received a message from The Entertainment Software Association that I really have to share with you all. What it boils down to is CHANGE. The whole “us Vs. them” attitude of the past is going away, because, well… almost everyone is now a gamer. Trust me, this is GOOD news.
