Global Chat: Comparing SWTOR’s and Star Wars Squadrons’ space battles


With Star Wars Squadrons now on the scene, a comparison between that game and SWTOR’s galactic starfighter content was all but inevitable.

MMO blog Galactic Antics took on the challenge of the comparison, saying, “I do honestly feel that the argument could easily be made that an experienced GSF player will have little trouble adjusting to Squadrons. They have their distinct differences, of course, but there is also a fair amount of similarity between the two games in more than a few places. If you enjoy spending hours at a time playing GSF, then I would advise at least checking this out and seeing it for yourself.”

How we make the mess.

Altar of Gaming: Torchlight III first impressions review

“Yes, it’s true, the combat is just as – if not more – satisfying than the previous game, and the overall environment, aesthetics, and storytelling is enhanced and polished.”

24 Hours In: In 2020, Secret World Legends feels like a period piece

“Playing the game in the memetic hellscape of 2020 I’m sometimes struck by just how dated this modern day setting already feels. It’s only eight years old, but in a way TSW/SWL has become as much of a period piece as the stories of H.P. Lovecraft that it draws upon so heavily.”

Nerdy Bookahs: Why I stopped loving RIFT

“It does have a lot of lore, so that part isn’t bad at all! It is just that, for reasons I can’t really word properly, I really dislike the lore and don’t feel comfortable playing in that world. With the Nightmare Tide, it became so bad for me, that I really didn’t want to play the game anymore.”

Yeebo Fernbottom: Elder Scrolls Online impressions

“The quests in ESO are also exceptionally well written and presented. I don’t think I have enjoyed storylines I was playing through this much since I was playing The Secret World.  I like the setting and the worldbuilding, which are enhanced by the lush graphics.”

Gamer Escape: It’s time for FFXIV to revise its housing system

“As we’ve moved on from A Realm Reborn, it’s become increasingly clear that the housing system hasn’t scaled with the demand of the game itself, especially on more popular servers. The fact that I’m awake right now at an ungodly hour is proof of that. It’s absolutely ridiculous.”

Heartless Gamer: I bought a house in New World

“The bottom line is there is a solid core in the game and that has me excited on where this game can go.  There is still a lot to be done as far as content goes to drive more rewards from those core loops, but all signs are pointing in the right direction.”

Every day there are tons of terrific, insightful, and unusual articles posted across the MMO gaming blogosphere — and every day, Justin reads as many as he can. Global Chat is a sampling of noteworthy essays, rants, and guides from the past few weeks of MMO discourse.

Games are good, but don’t get too carried away. The benefits will not be strong. But there will be more benefits from reading books and learning new things. I like to play myself. But books are more pleasant to read, especially if the game is based on the book, then you can combine business with pleasure. Here’s a super service for you It is more suitable for schoolchildren and students. You can find a lot of useful information or discuss your questions with experts. I use the service all the time when I need college help. And my little brother uses it at school.


SWG is still the best.

I’m playing Squadrons in VR and it’s an absolute joy. I adore the PvP in flatscreen and the story mode in VR. The story itself though is SO BOILERPLATE.

Squadrons is so good. I missed this type of space sim, AND this type of Star Wars game.
