I really picked a bad time starting my blow about TOR just after E3. With no new info from before E3, thankfully we have podcasts, and we are truly grateful.

Yeah. The good news at convention season is that all kinds of little tid-bits come out when people play it on the E3 floor. Bad news... they give us lame updates like this for weeks to come. :/

Glad your enjoying the show and we are grateful to have listeners! :)

Yes as Suzina stated around the summer time with the convention circuit at full charge information is a bit slow during the off weeks as the industry try's to spectate their audience at them. Although having said that there's a lot of interviews / panels that come up that have wonderful points. A lot of them may not be with core material from within a virtual world, but more set aside from a creative point of view or delve into the developmental process.

It offers a unique look at the industry from their own view. In turn we can get a brief glimpse on what kind of things they have in mind for us!
