SWTOR Vancouver Community Cantina Recap

We love to share info with you about Community Cantinas. First, they are fun and secondly, they are informative McSluethGaming.com has a great of info (with pictures) about the Vancouver Community Cantina. Let’s take a look at some of it now: I arrived about 45 minutes before the event and was the first one there, I was then greeted by Eric Musco who was setting up the front booth, from my limited knowledge of other cantina events I was shocked to find nobody else there, as was Eric who said this was the first time ever that this had happened. Normally there is a crowd almost 2 hours before! At that point I was honestly rather worried that not many people would show up at all… It did however give me a great chance to just chat with Eric for almost a solid hour which was nice. Around 20 mins to 8 a…

Phoenix Community Cantina Flash-drive Contents

We know we are late with this story,  due to a misunderstanding we are posting it a few days late. But here goes. BioWare had one of there infamous  SWTOR Community Cantina’s this last weekend. At the event new info was released as well as alot of hints of what might be comming. Housing stevebelt  asked about player housing, and while the verbal answer was of the “that’s a good idea” variety, judging by his not-so-wry smile and general body language, I’d say it’s almost a certainty they are working on player housing. In his question he made a note of how ripe for CM player housing content was, and the smiling/nodding only got bigger. Based on this, I would be completely stunned if we don’t see player housing in 2014.  New Story At the Cantina they said that a new story arc would begin with the 2.7 update, and would…
