Darth Malgus vs. Sean Dahlberg

Published by under humor on Jun. 29. 2010.

So I am going through some tweets from a bunch of TOR related people. I come across this tweet by one of the SWTOR Community Managers. Apparently, there is a poll on the official forums asking who would win in a fight: Darth Malgus or Sean Dahlberg. For those of you that are not good connecting names to actual characters … Sean Dahlberg is the main community manager for the game and Darth Malgus is our main bad guy in the game, Sith Warrior of great power and malice and a star of both cinematic trailers released so far. Sooooooo … who wins – Sean or Malgus? Cast your vote here (if you have the official forum account, and if you don’t you should!).

“Mass Effect made us do it” says SWTOR developer

Published by under news on Jun. 28. 2010.

In an interview with CVG, Bioware lead designer and story writer, Daniel Erickson has said that the well publicized, fully voiced, conversation system in The Old Republic is “totally inked from Mass Effect”.

I must say that I enjoyed Mass Effect back in the day and I am really curious to see how it all works out in the MMO type game. I’ll also be revisiting Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age to try and figure what we can expect in SWTOR, but more about that later.

The interview was conducted during this year’s E3 (the ultimate source of news for all swtor sites for months to come!) and you can read some excerpts in the CVG article. Here’s the most interesting bit for me:

Mass Effect changed the world because you became the hero. You actually became the most interesting thing on screen -you got all the best lines, and to be super cool. We had to go back and rewrite everything. The story telling system is totally inked from Mass Effect.

News spotted @ Massively.

Swtor Closed Beta rumors rampant

Published by under beta testing,rumor on Jun. 25. 2010.

SWTOR Closed Beta Invite

All the major MMO sites are reporting about a rumor saying that ~200 SWTOR closed beta invites have been sent out this morning to lucky winners. The image above allegedly show one such invitation (and if the person that made it is not really good at photoshop I must say it looks genuine). All of this was started by a thread on the official forums that was continued in thread no. 2. The most interesting piece of information divulged by Sean Dahlberg (Swtor community manager) is the following:

The Game Testing Agreement that was agreed upon (when signing up for game testing) states:

1. The fact that there is a Game Program.
2. The fact that you are a member of the Game Program.

Outside of that, it is a violation of the agreement to do anything more such as posting images or screen captures of anything related to Game Testing that is private and confidential and not already publicly revealed by The Old Republic team.

The discussion on the official forums expanded onto the third version of the original thread located here. This makes something like 500 pages of posts.

Prior to this year’s E3 a new SW:TOR cinematic trailer called “Hope” got leaked to the internetz. Let me tell you, it makes fanboys and fangirlshave to change their undies. In my personal opinion it is not as epic as the “Deceived” trailer, but it is very epic in its own right. Enjoy it in its full HD greatness below and we’ll go into detail in the days to come.

Hello World

Published by under Site news on Jun. 12. 2010.

Dear visitors I am very pleased and proud to welcome you to our latest endeavor, Swtor Life, fansite 200% dedicated to the upcoming MMO game Star Wars: The Old Republic, developed by Bioware. There are very few things in entertainment one waits and hopes for months in advance. In my case it was the Star Wars: Episode I (bummer eh?) and Lord of the Rings movies, World of Warcraft beta, next Lost episode (Season one and perhaps two only though). More than a year ago it was announced that Bioware is working on their first MMORPG title set in the Star Wars universe. That is when my wait for the game started. I even attempted to start a blog early on at, but due to lack of time I was not very active in keeping it fresh (I will copy the content here just for reference). I feel the time has come to take out my camping equipment and sit in front of the proverbial theater waiting for the show to start.

As some of you may or may not know we also did Lotro Life and Aion Life fansites. The theme is recurring and sums up to wanting to gather as much information as possible and share it with the community as soon as possible. We do up to date news, guides, item and quest databases, comics and everything we think the game’s community might appreciate. With this site we plan on doing all of that, putting in everything we got and a bit more on top. We are fans of the games and we do it for the game fans.

Like that young man standing on a desert planet, watching its two suns set, we eagerly await the future and hope to overcome all the obstacle it brings, however dark (or Darth) they might be. We hope you will embark on this journey along with us through the Star Wars: The Old Republic universe.
