Link roundup

1. Who knows if this anonymous writer is right, or just spreading sour grapes, but don't set aside money for The Old Republic just yet. Boy, I hope the claims are untrue. Via.

2. Yeti paper toy.

3. 15% off in stock/non-new items at the BBTS. Newly available for preorder is this adorable plush Jack Skellington.


  1. I was reading the EA Louse blog last night, and its "exploded" even more today with many more replies, comments and sites posting about it. Yeah, hope claims on TOR are just a sour opinion overall – he hasn’t played or been part of it by the sounds. Grain of salt I guess but interesting read…

  2. I don't think people understand just how epic a failure the original Star Wars MMO was. That thing should have been massive. They shipped it in Alpha, it wasn't even a Beta.

    The funny thing is that the only 'game' that I have ever heard of being shipped in a less finished condition were some of the Everquest expansions. They would actually make areas advertised on the box unreachable for a while to give developers more time to complete them. Both Star Wars Galaxies and Everquest were made by Sony Online Entertainment.
