Star Wars: The Old Republic is slightly less than two months away. This is great news in many ways! But for many people, it can also be a source of frustration as more and more Old Republic related books are released. Let’s face it, TOR isn’t cheap and the current world economy isn’t exactly the best right now. I am sure that there are many people out there who may have had their financial reality make the choice of the version of TOR they are getting, rather than what they actually wanted. And forget buying the novels, graphic novels and other items.
If you haven’t played Knights of the Old Republic, or its sequel yet, both can be found for relatively cheap online in most cases – but there is an even cheaper method of getting your hands on all of this stuff that you may not have considered. Your local library. I know, for books, it is like saying, “Did you know that water is wet?” But stick with me a moment. With the internet, many people have stopped thinking about their local libraries, which is a shame. I already have Revan on hold at my library for when it comes out. Sure, if I can buy or win a copy, that will be a lot better – but until that happens, at least I know that I will be able to read the book not too long after it comes out.
Also, did you know that libraries are now lending out video games? I can get a copy of KotOR and KotOR II from my local library. They also have Wii, X-Box and PlayStation games. If your local library doesn’t have it, you can do an inter-library request and have it shipped from another library to your own at no cost. It may take a little while, but at least you get a chance to experience the Lore you were otherwise missing out on.
So, if you are running low on cash, or just want to brush up on The Old Republic Lore without spending any money, head on down to your local library and see what they have to offer. TOR is still almost 2 months away – plenty of time to brush up on your Lore.
Thanks for reading! And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @Daelda.
