OotiniCast Episode 218

We discuss James Ohlen’s presentation of SWTOR at the EA press conference at Gamescom, which included the new “Become the Outlander” gameplay trailer. Later we delve into the depths of how bad Star Wars and SWTOR humour can get.

1. Introduction

If you don’t want to wait for Windows 10 to update automatically (which could takes days or weeks), download the media creation tool from Microsoft. Right-click on Computer and select Properties if you’re not sure whether you have a 32 bit or 64 bit CPU (most likely you’ll want the 64 bit version!).

3. Holofeed

  • All players who made it into the Gold tier at the end of Ranked PvP Season 5 have now been sent the Nexu mount. Those who received the Nexu by mistake will get to keep them. Given the Nexu is no longer exclusive, BioWare will provide an exclusive item to all players from the Gold tier in Game Update 3.3.1.
  • Electronic Arts held its Q1 2016 Earnings Conference Call.
  • During the EA Gamescom press conference held on 5 August 2015 in Cologne, Germany, James Ohlen was on stage to talk about SWTOR.
