Hyperspace Beacon: SWTOR Marauders will suck but Operatives will not

Update 2.5 for Star Wars: The Old Republic will release at the same time the Galactic Starfighter expansion will hit for subscribers.

Hyperspace Beacon: Curbing expectations for SWTOR Galactic Starfighter

After the announcement last week about the Star Wars: The Old Republic super-secret space project, I wanted to jump up and down, shouting from the roof tops about how BioWare has done something right. BioWare has given small indications of how it was listening to fans, starting with the size of...
