Cat Context 91: SWTOR, a return to WoW, F2P losing steam?

cat-context-vertical

On this episode, Liore, Arolaide, and Ellyndrial sit down to talk about what they’ve been playing lately… even if they should be full of shame.

Yes, the rumors are true: Liore has returned to WoW, at least for a little while. She talks about her confusing experiences with the Warlords of Draenor “lore”, and disappointment with the inflexibility of garrisons. However, even Elly and Aro have to admit that the mechanics behind WoW are still some of the best in the genre.

Take SWTOR, for example. Both Elly and Aro have been very much enjoying their story-driven experiences, even if the responsiveness isn’t Blizzard-level. All three hosts agree that in its current incarnation, SWTOR is essentially KOTOR3, and we’re pretty okay with it.

Also we get a little sidetracked (who, us?) by the current state of F2P models. SWTOR’s soul-crushing F2P system is obviously more of a trial than actually free, and RIFT has started cracking down on their previously benevolent “get everything for free” system. Are we finally seeing the long tail of F2P?

Also, Aro has strong feelings about Corso Riggs! Liore is buying up all your cheap goods on the World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Expansion – PC/MacWoW auction house! And Elly keeps talking about Final Fantasy Record Keeper!

    Man, this episode made me laugh so much… and a shout-out! <3

    On the subject of not knowing how your lines will come out in SWTOR, Elly might enjoy this little video.

    And did Aro get a new mike for Christmas? I swear she’s been sounding a bit different in the last couple of episodes.
