OotiniCast Episode 44

This week, Chill and Teo are joined by Hyp and Chong to go over what’s coming in Game Update 1.4, which has been deployed onto the PTS. We also discuss what we know about the Ancient Hypergates warzone, which was recently playable at GamesCom.

1. Introduction

2. Question to the panel

3. Trivia question

This week’s question: John Williams uses themes to connect the threads of the stories he scores for. For who or what in the Star Wars universe is the theme that Chill whistles (19:13)? Also, at what point in the movies do we hear this theme when what is going on onscreen is seemingly unrelated to the theme’s topic?

5. Force Feedback

We discuss tweets from @voyak, @ForceChuckle, @EmpireDivider (Chong), @Dimbo56, @IzaakTheMad, @SithLordKorv and @grimrok.

Jason B requests that OotiniCast be added to the Zune Marketplace: now done!

Grim tells us about some particularly difficult class missions (at least for one of the ACs), and wonders whether we’ve encountered similar problems.

Rei’lar (Gary Foster) wants to start a second raid group within Ootini Knights. They plan to run 7-10pm Tuesdays PDT. If you are interested in joining his group (tentatively called “Rei’lar’s Roughnecks”), please contact Rei’lar in-game or via email (gary.foster@gmail.com).

  1. Great job linking the show to the swtor fan site forums, or the other way around, or however it’s set up. I like the fact that I can go to the fan site forum on swtor.com and easily find my way here. Loved the latest show. I’m really excited about the fact that you guys are starting to get into pvp. That’s the main thing I like to do ingame and I’m anxious to hear you guys’ continuing adventures in that part of the game.
