Interview: Daniel Erickson and Stephen Reid

Kay White had the privilege of interviewing Daniel Erickson, Lead Writer for BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic at NYCC and allowed TORWars to print the story. I love Erickson and the fun and humor he brings to every interview or chat about SWTOR so I was definitely interested in giving this one a read.

On Saturday at New York Comic Con, in between some hours of being shoulder-bumped by geek-crazed New Yorkers, I got to enjoy some minutes with Daniel Erickson, Lead Writer for BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic. Mr. Erickson, with grace and animated humor, gave out details of the writing process, resolving questions that have gnawed at me since I played my first BioWare game, Dragon Age: Origins. He also discussed content balance, titles, voice actor availability, character surnames, and a skinny little bit about slave bikinis.

You will need to head on over to TORWars to read the full (and fun) interview for yourself. Thanks Kay for sharing your time with Erickson with the rest of us.

More fun stuff from NYCC 2011 is this interview with Stephen Reid from TORWars:

Reid’s working on that launch beard, too so check it out. It’s only about 4 minutes long but it’s a fun and quick interview. For example, Reid hints at some of the things that will be added in Friday updates coming up soon.

A child of the Nintendo generation, she believes they just don’t make games like they used to but sometimes, they make them even better! While consoles will always be her first love, Lisa spends most of her gaming time on the PC these days- on MMOs and first-person shooters in particular.
