This week we talk about burnout (*GASP*), the holidays (definitely not related), and SWTOR expac goodness. Don’t worry, spoiler free. Welcome to CCR, where we talk about MMOs and where we will not kneel before Emperor Valkorian.
SWTOR – So. Much. SWTOR. Expansion is live. Well-received.
Some replayability Concerns – to each their own. Alliance system is MUCH bigger than anticipated.
Story seems awesome. Feels more like a Bioware game – http://kotaku.com/star-wars-the-old-republic-now-feels-more-like-a-class-1738781689
Wildstar – Google Interest Drops. Subjectively, still a LOT more players on than ever before.
Wildstar PvP – new Arena, changes coming in next drop/patch
World of Fishing… do we REALLY need this?
Also, Warcraft Movie Trailer
Guild Wars 2 – Heart of Thorns is live and pretty dang awesome
Moar GW2 – Raid coming TOMORROW
5 Pillars of MMORPGs that should be torn down

Death to the leveling game
Alyssia “Pinky” Swiftwind – Wildstar RP – Sunday mornings at the BBB are awesome! (Entity, Exile)
If I Were A Dev
Quality of Life: Emotes
Are they important? Should they ALL have Animation? How many? Include some raucous ones?
DREW: Love class-specific emotes. Two person emote, dance a tango or a waltz.
This week’s end music is the opening theme from Neverwinter.
