The Stream Team: Starting SWTOR’s Knights of the Eternal Throne

It finally happened! It took a year, but Massively OP’s MJ and Larry have gone from character creation in SWTOR all the way through KOTFE. Now, it’s time to begin the Knights of the Eternal Throne story arc. Word is, there are some hefty, outcome altering decisions to be made! And those decisions are made by you! So join us live at 2:00 p.m. as Choose My Alignment continues the adventure in…

Hyperspace Beacon: SWTOR, it’s time to destroy the Eternal Empire

Those players who were looking for consequence in their Star Wars: The Old Republic storyline can, I’m glad to say, look to Knights of the Eternal Throne to get it. Although the Vaylin side of the story will remain virtually unchanged regardless of the player’s choices, it’s possible to lose multiple companions, and there is even one choice where you have to choose one companion over the other. However, the quality of the story really hinges on how much you like or dislike Valkorion’s family. They are a bunch of rich brats doing bratty things, so on a personal level, I couldn’t care less about them.

You know what I do care about, though? The Empire and the Republic. You know what most fans of Star Wars care about? The Empire and the Republic, or possibly the Jedi and the Sith. Whether it’s a story buried in the conflict of those two armies colliding or it’s a gangster taking advantage of being in the middle of those two opposing parties, the Empire and the Republic have been central to all the engaging Star Wars stories.

For this specific reason, it’s time for BioWare to tear down the Eternal Empire.

The Stream Team: The final KOTFE chapter in SWTOR

It has been quite the journey through SWTOR’s Knights of the Fallen Empire for Massively OP’s MJ and Larry, and they couldn’t have done it without you, the audience. No, really: You’ve made all the important decisions! But it’s all about to come to an end; the duo starts the final chapter today, discovering the fallout of SCORPIO’s actions. Join us live at 2:00 p.m. to help wrap this story up. (But don’t worry, there’s a whole other expansion to dive into for Choose My Alignment after this one!)

The Stream Team: SWTOR KOTFE Chapter XV, take 2

Down with the Eternal Empire, and up with… internet connection!

This time they are determined to take over that ship and sit their own GEMINI in the captain’s chair. Join us live at 2:00 p.m. to decide the Chiss Agent’s actions in the continuing Choose My Alignment adventures of Rebels With a Cause.

Hyperspace Beacon: Datamining suggests big changes for SWTOR’s companions

It might be a little hypocritical of me to read into the datamined information from Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s upcoming patch 5.6, but I’d be failing at my job if I didn’t at least take a look. Of course, I’m not a fan of much of the datamined stuff because it leads to abhorrent speculation and misjudging, but there is one part of the most recent datamined info that has me kind of excited… excited about crafting, of all things.

So before we dive in, I should mention that datamined information might never make it in the game and that datamining itself is against the terms of service. And much of the datamined information can be and usually is taken completely out of context. That means that I want you to take everything that I’m about to write with a grain of salt. It probably means nothing, but every once in awhile, it’s fun to tread in places you’re not supposed to go. So if you would like to speculate with me, let’s talk about some very interesting changes that could potentially come to your companions.

The Stream Team: Playing through Profit and Plunder in SWTOR’s KOTFE

With chapter XII of SWTOR’s Knights of the Fallen Empire wrapped up, Massively OP’s Larry and MJ are moving on to chapter XIII, Profit and Plunder. With a title like that, MJ is expecting a little cash and maybe a lot of commotion. Of course, commotion is all but assured after the last transmission with Kaliyo and Aric Jorgan; chances are only one of those two will survive. Tune in live at 2:00 p.m. to watch how that little confrontation will play out and vote on the Chiss Agent’s reaction to it all.

The Stream Team: Exploring the end of SWTOR’s KOTFE Chapter XII

After her tiff with Valkorion, Massively OP’s MJ awoke in an unfamiliar place free of that uppity ghost’s influence. Thanks goodness! But where is she? Larry sure isn’t going to tell. There’s only one way to find out: Her Chiss Agent is ready to explore the rest of KOTFE’s Chapter XII. Luckily, MJ lives to explore! She loves discovering new things, including discovering what choices you — the audience — will make in the story. Join us live at 2:00 p.m. to decide the next steps of the story in this latest installment of Choose My Alignment.

The Stream Team: Charging ahead into Chapter XII of SWTOR’s KOTFE

Having celebrated the conclusion of SWTOR’s Chapter XII on the dance floor, Massively OP’s Larry and MJ move on to Chapter XIII: Visions in the Dark. That doesn’t sound ominous at all, does it? Of course, it is fitting since MJ is in the dark as to what choices her Chiss Agent will make until the audience votes on them! Will the resistance grow, or run into resistance? Tune in live at 2:00 p.m. to continue the Choose My Alignment adventures in Knights of the Fallen Empire.

The Stream Team: Diving into SWTOR’s new Manaan stronghold

SWTOR just introduced a new stronghold, and this one will help Massively OP’s Larry and MJ cool off a bit in the summer heat. Well, it could if it were real! Manaan, the home of the Selith, is a water planet, and the duo will be diving in to show it off. After that, they’ll return to their Choose My Alignment adventures in KOTFE. Join us live at 2:00 p.m. to decide the Chiss Agent’s fate as the war against Arkann continues.

Star Wars: The Old Republic’s 5.3 is live today with Sisters of Carnage, class updates, and new housing

Star Wars: The Old Republic’s 5.3 patch is rolling out today, bringing with it the new underwater Manaan Stronghold home, the Sisters of Carnage raid bosses, and Lana and Koth companion visual appearance customizations. Already have too many homes? No biggie; now you can have a total of six of ’em, so you can squeeze in the Manaan Retreat too.

Pretty much every class has received a balancing pass this round too, as teased rather ominously over the past month.

Plus? “Tanno Vik has been convinced to put clothes on and will no longer appear naked in Knights of the Fallen Empire cutscenes.” So there’s that.

Will there be more recruits, or is it time to start sticking it to the Fallen Empire? Will the audience choose to blow more things up?
