TOROcast – Episode 21 – Eh…

This weeks show we discuss the covenant demo video, and while we weren’t 100% impressed we did pull some very interesting pieces of information out of it. This is also week 3 of our month of guilds and we sit down and talk with Exodus Syndicate. Thanks again to them for coming on. If you are a guild interested in being featured on the TOROcast podcast, be sure to listen in to the end of the show where we talk about our little “contest.” All in all I think we put together another great show for you folks, and lets all congradulate Musco on his first “show editing” experience. We’re getting him ready to take care of things while Samm is at PAX. With out further chit chat here is the show.

  • Cataclysm having an effect on TOR
  • Your Hype before/after the demo (1-10)


  • Do you think it will be viable/possible for a Jedi/Sith to use other weapons besides a lightsaber? (my thoughts would be like a pure force combat specced Jedi/Sith who uses a “caster weapon” that is useless in combat, except for buffs to force powers) Or for traditionally ranged classes (BH, Smuggler) to be melee focused? (TheDrake)
  • Will the fact that each character class has extremely similar starting story (such as all troopers in Havoc Squad) ruin the character and story immersion? (Gorosaur)
  • What do you guys think about the EU versus the Movies in regards to the Dev’s taking ideas to support the classes and the development of the game? Should they focus strictly on the movies? or should they focus EXPRESSLY on some parts of the EU for ideas and gameplay decisions (and if so which parts heh)? (ZionicestSayImNicest)

About SammMoney

Hey there friends I am Samm 'Money' Carbo, owner of Twonk Hammer Entertainment, LLC. In March of 2009, along with a dearly missed friend I started a podcast some may know; The TOROcast based on Star Wars: The Old Republic, unfortunately that game was not a fit for me however I did not want to give up podcasting and reviewing games. Thus I started this site, and The Ban Hammer podcast. I am the proud father of currently one, work as a computer tech during the day, and a mail man on Saturday's as you can imagine my life is busy. Follow me on Twitter @SammMoney and of course follow us here @TwonkHammer.
