#64 Tierless vs His Broski; a tale of SWTOR

My friend, no, we are more than standard “friends” we are...Broskis!!! My Broski (thats better) started playing SWTOR. He likes the game, is excited for the space stuff, and loves the story of his bounty hunter. My Broski also likes the Michael Bay Transformer movies because my Broski is like normal world me (me being the bizarro world version of him obviously) and he loves most things that give him a bit O’ entertainment and to be honest I’ve always been a bit jealous of that “contentness”. I mean, he can watch ANY movie and be like, “that was cool /shrug”. Meanwhile I generally don’t want to invest the time into a movie unless I feel watching it can provide me with some form of previously unthought about perspective, philosophical concept, or incredibly creative story...

“Hey T-Broski how is that burger?” “Good.” “Hey Tierless how is that burger?” “Well, it didn’t alter my worldview, inform my political stance, or change my religious beliefs so I don’t feel like it was worth eating and I regret taking the time to do so, I should have went with tacos instead, I find them so much more...profound...” Yeash. Side note, I have decided there are two kinds of people in the world, those that love tacos and those that hate everything. Back on topic I wonder what would happen if we merged into one being, Super Saiyan style (OMFG auto correct spelled Saiyan right for me meaning it knew what it was, that is cool). Rather than forming one leet SS I assume it would be kinda like that time Evil Buu ate Good Buu, but with exactly the opposite amount of muscles.

My point is we of teh interwebs often tend to get sliiiiiiiightly wrapped up in our e-personas we forget to keep things in perspective. It’s those times that a good Broski like the one mentioned above can really help ground things and take them back to cheeeeeel man, just cheeeeel. You can learn a lot from someone that enjoys things you are supposed to enjoy. Being a bizarro version of that can be frustrating at times. Things that are funny to most people (like Duck Dynasty) make you wanna put your head through a wall meanwhile things that aren’t supposed to be funny, like someone getting their head put through a wall, are hilarious to you...

Due to his inspiration I have decided to turn over a new leaf. To change my spots. To re-roll a new toon and give many of the games I’ve taken issue with in the past a second chance. I’ll try to look at them through new, less jaded eyes. After so SO many years of watching the form of entertainment I love more than any other circle around that big ivory bowl it’s hard not to judge the book by it’s concept art cover, but from here on out I promise to be a kinder, gentler, Tierless. Tierless 2.0. I’ll even give old SWTOR a second look, yes, I’m serious. I mean, it’s Star Wars, if any one thing can get me to look blindly past flaws, it’s that!

(the following took place a few hours after writing the above blog)

After rolling through some SWTOR forums in research for a potential re-trial I saw something that even Tierless 2.0 simply can not forgive. THEY ARE CHARGING FOR FREAKEN HOT BARS! You actually have to PAY for a SECOND BUTTON BAR! WOW, just WOW. I always joke about paying to download, paying again to log in, paying again to walk but I didn’t think any games would take that model seriously! Grats SWTOR you are in fact the greediest MMO I have ever encountered. Worst of all that game has basically been reduced to the same model SWG was using. Milking hardcore Star Wars fans like myself with cosmetics because we HAVE to pay because; Star Wars, yet it STILL lacks most of the features that made SWG great 10 years ago!

...

Ok, rough start, mushin no shin, hummmm, hummmmmm, ok. I am calm. I am at peace. I am Tierless 2.0...as, of, righttttt...now (big exhale). We will forget about that little side track with SWTOR...they can’t all be like that...right?
