I also was a big fan of this dev dispatch. Listening to the podcast right now and I gotta say, I really like how you guys talk about the imagery evoked in your minds when listening to the music. Very cool. Great cast!

Strange - We are not allowed to talk about any leaked footage. We are in a public spotlight so we try to honor what Bioware has stated.

James - I appreciate the kind words, glad you are enjoying the show. Sorry if at times the music seems a bit bad, we are in the process of switching over to some new software. Audio within Star Wars is very deep and an integral root, it's very interesting on how different people express their imagery upon hearing it.

Kalvod: "We've made a deal that will keep Bioware out of our hair for a long time."
*door opens*
Sean Dahlberg is standing at the head of a table, "We would be honored if you would join us."

But yeah, we ended up deciding not to talk about the leaked stuff. It's out there if you're looking, but decided not to talk about it. We recorded 2 interviews this week, and hope to be able to bring you guys more in the future... and all that probably requires cooperation with Bioware.

lol, that pretty much sums it up :P

Anyone who wants to find leaked info can find what they are looking for. But the true fan sites blogs and pods will follow the NDA.
This stuffs very important to the people who run them, we should respect what BW is trying to do with TOR. Any unfinished info without the final polish and/or final skills ext...are subject to change.
Posting/linking to such info is detrimental to the game itself, Testing is just that. Tester are there to give very important feed-back and should remain with-in the NDA to help, not hinder BW.

I agree that people should stick to the agreements, i.e. beta testers should ideally not leak stuff.
But I'm getting sick of the holier-than-thou attitude of some people, as if they are working for effin' Bioware themselves instead of being fanboys (and girls) ready to soak up any information about the game. If people don't want to talk about it, I respect that, but I have little patience for people going about and wagging their virtual fingers at people who do.

@ Fabian
I have to agree. There's really no reason for people against beta-leaks to flame people, act high-and-mighty, or imply there are moral implications to leaking information instead of just legal implications. In fact, my first instinct upon seeing the leaks was to talk about them and spread the word, but of course that didn't last long.

One post on the main boards that caught me off guard was where people asked where they could report beta leaks. People going out of their way to limit info about the game they so desperately want more info on seemed weird... till I heard the rumor about reporting people giving you beta access. Some people will believe anything.

Currently, the majority of websites, twitter accounts, and youtube accounts that leaked were destroyed, including people who never signed up for TOR beta (and therefore never signed an NDA) So whether it's fans or employees reporting leaks, the consequences seem to be pretty harsh.
