It’s getting very exciting, don’t you think?
Each day that passes brings us one day closer to it and I, quite honestly, haven’t been this excited since my high school days and Religious Education lessons with the delightful Mrs. Fee. No, I’m not talking about a Champions League including neither Manchester club nor even a UK Championship with Steven Maguire back on fire.
I’m talking about the launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic.
And with early access starting in a week, I feel it’s time I get back to doing what I do worst; being the author behind rambling blogs related to the games I’m playing. Badly.
So, what’s to be expected from Sith Immortalis?
First of all, you should definitely expect a level of self-important opinions stated as facts. You should also prepare for a fair smattering of ill-advised and ill-informed commentary based on gameplay quirks I don’t really get. Generous helpings of pointless quips from someone pretentious enough to use Latin in his title? Check. It’s also reasonable to assume that I’ll endeavour to implement convoluted and elongated sentences, though grammatically sound, with the express intention of veiling my explicit lack of true comprehension with pseudo-intellectual word salad.
But in amongst all that, I’m also hoping to cover the joys of playing a Sith Immortal Juggernaut. To start with, I can only imagine I’ll be writing about the story immersion, the feel of the planets, low-level flashpoints and levelling trade skills. I may discuss how one fights in space, kits out a starship or charms the midi-chlorians out of companions (forcing a certificate onto the blog). It’s entirely possible, though not necessarily likely, that readers will find content they enjoy in the reams of verbal diarrhoea I’m about to unleash upon the Internet.
Naturally, in time, I’ll move onto the endgame aspects of playing an Immortal and how best to go about it. It’s obvious that I’ll be a noob to start with and it’s henceforth implied that a lot of what I write will be exploratory or not in full ownership of the facts. As a result, everyone is invited to get involved in the discussion and hopefully make the blog a worthwhile resource for anyone who happens to stumble across it.
Of course, some may have followed my writings from World of Warcraft and will fully accept a climactic storm of QQ that results in a ragequit.
We can only hope.
Regardless of all that, though, I just want to have fun – I enjoy playing games, I enjoy writing blogs and I adore the Star Wars franchise. If some of you guys can have some fun alongside me, that’s all for the better.
After all, in the absence of extensive mechanical body modifications that prolong it, life’s too short.
