We talk about seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens (spoiler-free, of course). There’s also a little SWTOR news, including the broken events and the nVidia contest. Then more discussion in response to listener feedback about BioWare’s strategy going forward.
2. Tip of the week
The site mentioned by Sukai was lightsaber.withgoogle.com.
Congratulations to this week’s winner, Sukai! Thanks to Knite, Sir Nobody, Ol’Sarge and Dekion for entering.

- The Rakghoul event was not able to be fixed before its conclusion on Tuesday. This week’s Bounty Contract Week was also broken. Both events will (hopefully) successfully return in January.
- nVidia is holding the Star Wars: The Old Republic “Build Your Alliance” contest.

5. Force Feedback
Dlots referred us to this Reddit thread discussing the new Star Game in development at EA subsidiary Visceral.
The Good Game review of KotFE can be seen here.
Sukai and his brother Mykre levelled from 1-65 using only the most basic of gear, as you can see in this video.
However, when told that it wasn’t without any gear, Sukai has taken on a near challenge: level a character which only has the starter items received when it was first created… and is now level 51 after three days!
