As I sit and play solo I often spin up a podcast to listen to. When I am on a binge I can burn through all my current listens and end up searching for old ones to listen to again. This week I dipped into MMO nostalgia, turning on VirginWorlds Podcast #133 from November 3, 2008.
Brent’s voice is almost a point of nostalgia for me now, and hearing him talk about the massively multiplayer online gaming news back in the day when it was something a single podcast could handle.
But episode #133 was a special podcast, dedicated to a single game; Star Wars: The Old Republic.
In mid-October the news that was a surprise to almost nobody broke as BioWare at last confirmed that their MMO project was going to be based on the Star Wars IP. Brent took it upon himself to sum up all we knew about SWTOR after a couple of weeks. There was even a call out to Star Wars Galaxies, as John Smedley said the two games would be running side by side.
Yeah, we know how that really worked out.
Anyway, if you want to go back a decade and hear how the game was being presented, there is a 52 minute podcast that has you covered.
