OotiniCast Episode 240

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.

1. Introduction

Chill appeared on episode 25 of Alex’s GeEK Podcast. Alex talked about The HK-55 Bonus Chapter in SWTOR—How I would do, his latest blog post.

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.

Please send your tips to ootinicast@gmail.com by next Tuesday for a chance to win a Taunfawn or M8-3R droid code, courtesy of BioWare, and an OotiniCast-provided Cartel Market pack from the latest shipment.

4. Community

Last week’s Reddit discussion on episode 239 was quite extensive!

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!

Sukai - Leveling in starter gear (level 51 in 3 days)

OotiniCast Episode 240 — 8 Comments

  1. My condolences Chill, to you and your family. You did a very good job of keeping it together on the podcast this week. I went through a similar circumstance with my sister almost a decade ago, and hearing your story brought back a flood of emotions. I wont lie, your in for some tough times, and you’ll never be the same again, but you’ll find you have a much greater depth of empathy concerning loss not only in real life, but for things like games and movies which I continue to find quite astounding. In my grief I hit the old Star Wars Galaxies pretty hard, and found that the online community is a really good way to cope on a personal level, but don’t forget your real life friends and family either.

  2. Hello Ootini Cast, Jacket here and I just wanted to wish you guys a merry Christmas/Life Day. Thank you for all you do; truly, the swtor player base will always be in debt to you for producing such a strong pillar in our community. Cheers.

  3. F.Y.I The origin deal for 60 day and 1k CC is limit 1 per account… I bought enough for me and my wife to get through all the remaining KotFE chapters… then had to spend time on the phone with SWTOR people to find out it was limit 1 per account, then more time on the phone with origin to get a refund…

    • Also, FYI, I did all this before i heard about it on the podcast, just in case you thought I was blaming you… no no… I have done this myself.

  4. Omg.. I’m so sorry Chill. You’re such a great and soft spoken kind personality, I’m so sorry for your loss. Please continue to push forward 😉 Love, love the podcast.. thank you for continuing to do it 😉

  5. So sorry to hear about Chill’s wife. I can only imagine the pile of goo I would be if the same were to happen to me. I admire his composure and selflessness he showed by doing the podcast. Thank you.

  6. Chill- so sorry to hear about your wife. Thoughts to you and your family. Hope that time does help separate the pain from the good memories
