No SWTOR news, so our guests bring the content! Charlie talks about E3, after we discuss EA’s Star Wars games video; Daniel tells us about his research survey for SWTOR players, and Cristina tells us why #PerformanceMatters.
Here are Charlie’s two t-shirt designs:
2. Tip of the week
Congratulations to this week’s winner, Andarank of the Galaxy Knights guild on The Harbinger! Thanks to Kal for entering.
Please send your tips to email@example.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.
- BioWare posted this early concept art of the Zakuulan cityscape.
- At EA’s press conference for E3, they showed a video titled EA Star Wars: A Look Ahead. Dulfy posted a frame from the video showing what appears to be the new BioWare Austin office.
- EA subsequently posted a summary of their Star Wars games, from this year onwards.
- This 3D-printed and hand-painted XS stock light freighter is awesome!
- Apparently George Lucas has revealed the narrator of the Star Wars movies to be none other than R2-D2.
Daniel provided the following summary of his upcoming dissertation project which involves players of SWTOR, titled “Personality, Motivation and Online Gaming”:
This study should be going live during the month of June, and consists of 3 online surveys linked together in which SWTOR players can give information about how they play the game, common decision making processes, activities they enjoy, and then linking these things to their actual MBTI Personality type. I have been playing SWTOR since launch, and really hope the player community can help me make this project a success in a relatively short amount of time. Also, we can settle the score once and for all whether “story, story, story” is preferred over the MMO bits (since I am not a part of Bioware)! The survey will tentatively go live in mid-July. Follow me on Twitter for updates on the project and the opportunity to participate: @Infinite0utcome.
5. The Academy
This week Swtorista explains the basics of playing as free-to-play, preferred or subscribed.
6. Force Feedback
Sukai referred us to this article from Super Data Research, which showed SWTOR as the third ranked pay-to-play MMO in April 2016.
7. Sarlacc Digest
Cristina tells us why #PerformanceMatters. Who can find out what video game voice actors want here. As Cristina mentioned, the union has requested that a US regulatory body investigate the vocal safety of voice actors in the game industry.
