The Balance Force Podcast is by Master Liu and Alise, and we talk about Star Wars: The Old Republics MMORPG Game.
Recently I have been playing #FinalFantasyXIV, I had a couple of friends that played Swtor asking me to try it out. That was about 3-4 months back, I was reluctant at first since I really didn’t know too much about the genre of #FinalFantasy. But since there is a free trial of the game, how could I really say no. And I’ll be honest I really had no idea that #SquareEnix made an MMO. So my friend said to me, “I think you’ll really enjoy this game.”. And like I said there’s the free trial. My friend took the time to explain to me what the jobs (classes) are and the races in the game.
I wanted to put out a review type of guide covering the basics of the game which I learned since I had started playing. But I don’t want to throw out too much information as to confuse anyone who might be new to trying FFXIV.
Over the past few months, I have not really had the desire to login to #swtor and thinking about as to why. And some may agree and others not so much. Now as most you know that I’m very direct and blunt in my blog posts. So I have had time to really think on some things, I spoke with friends that have left the game or waiting for their subs to run out. Lots of aspects have changed through the lifespan of the game and some more favorable to some players and other aspects still leaving much to desire. But let’s be real, yes I have tweeted out of the lack of content of the game, and it’s true. Some of you may ask/say to yourself “Yeah there is.”, but let’s break things down.
#CrisisOnUmbara is the latest to hit #Swtor, though from some players that I have spoke with feel asthough that it was a let down, not to mention that having to attain the new #Stronghold that you have to go through the story is annoying. Talking with friends/guildies over some of the aspects of the game as of late, and with the recent patch and the nerfs going out, several players I know have quit the game. They feel no desire to continue with Swtor. With a few of my friends leaving, it’s sad the direction that #Bioware is going. Several Nightmare/Master mode players I know have also felt similar and feel the game is just lacking in content.
I know it’s been awhile, but you know how things get in life and sometimes it’s gets crazy. Been a bit busy with work, and sometimes it cuts into recording podcats and playing. Thank you all for continuing to follow me I really appreciate your patience. I have some plans for upcoming podcasts that is a little of of the norm, hopefully as long as plans continue. But also let me say sorry for the break in podcasts, but timing of recordings is a bit of a challenge.
YAY! I just wanted to you everyone know that the first episode of the podcast is available right now on http://thebalanceforce.podbean.com/e/the-balance-force-podcast/. Itunes, Googleplay, and Stitcher soon to come. But I really wanted to get the podcast up and out there for all to enjoy. Please be gentle as we’re new to the #SWTOR podcasting community. We hope that the community enjoys us and we look forward to expanding it. We would like to thank community for enbracing us and we hope not to disappoint. It’s been something that I’ve been wanting to do for some time, and we all love the #StarWarsTheOldRepublic game. Feel free to leave us feedback, we would love to hear from you.
Special thanks to everyone in helping me. Happy holidays.
After a summer of silence, and months of anticipation #Bioware has given us some information on #kotet. New York Comic Con Cantina event gave us an inside look of the upcoming conclusion to #kotfe. Ideas of Bioware listening to it’s playerbase may have fallen on deaf ears, some have stated. Blur gave us a teaser trailer and a full trailer. In short, it’s a backstory on Vaylin, so obviously you have an idea of the direction of the story. Vaylin is Emperess now and it’s pretty much an ultimate battle of Good vs. Bad aka Light vs. Dark.
Bioware for awhile has wanted to go back to its roots of story story story-telling, #KnightsOfTheFallenEmpire was pretty much Bioware’s way of testing the waters and dipping their toes in a different direction of what MMO evolution they have in mind. Though KotFE came with mixed reviews, the foundation of the game was the same, now with the next step of a complete revamp of the whole system of the game.
It’s the 2016, and many podcasts, bloggers, sites are making predictions about the upcoming year involving #StarWarsTheOldRepublic #KnightOfTheFallenEmpire. Bioware is back from their vacation and working on releasing the new chapter in February. But the #swtor community has alot of questions concerning the direction of the game.
Well, it’s a bit since I got to post but I’ve been following the news to #KnightsoftheFallenEmpire. Now, I’ll try not to spoil anything. As of late I have been a bit busy with my acting career, not to mention with dealing with some personal items on my plate. Let’s dive into some #kotfe, shall we.
Trying to play on multiple servers can get a little confusing, like for example at a certain time on Jedi Covenant it just dies out. And on Harbinger, it seems to practically be rocking round the clock! It’s been a while since I played on Harbinger, I started on that server back in the day when the game launched.
Been playing with ‘Unholy Alliance’ guildies in our “WoG” group when I can, granted I missed last weeks run. Also, I wanted to give a special shoutout to the XtraLife Team for going the Xtra mile to raise money for Children’s Hospitals. Way to go team! I wish I could’ve participated but real life things came up.
We are about a month away from #KnightsoftheFallenEmpire expansion, and some information has been trickling out. Thanks to the wonderful miners of ToRCommunity we have gotten tidbits of upcoming things such as UI improvements. Recently, #Bioware had maintenance to make improvements to the back end systems to optimize load times, graphical improvements. And honestly, it’s been good so far, I’ve seen huge improvements on the load times.
As most of you know, there was a live stream on August 26th at 5pm PST. It gave us a preview of the upcoming #swtor expansion #KnightsoftheFallenEmpire. Now let me just be clear as to I will not post any spoilers, I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone. For those of you that actually want to watch it. There is the following video.
