The lights are on
The Game Informer Podcast comes early this week, with a special edition focused on BioWare's epic MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic. This game is off to a blockbuster start, but does it have the legs to contend with Blizzard's World of Warcraft? We assembled a group of GI editors that run the gamut of Star Wars and MMO experience to examine this game's considerable strengths and ponder some of the questions about its ongoing development. Host Matt Helgeson is joined by Adam Biessener, Matt Miller, Andy McNamara, and Andy Reiner, who sing the praises of The Old Republic's solo-friendly, story-heavy MMO action. For Star Wars fans, this is the most significant video game release in the franchise in years. For MMO fans, it's a refreshing break from the norm. Whatever your tastes, it's a game that's well worth talking about.
