As for Darth Hater, I finished listening to the podcast now. The guys are divided over what they think the hold up is. They're all for SGRs in game mind you . They're divided over how BW might implement it, rewriting story or new companions. So it's not just us who have no clue. One also mentioned the deleted tweet, and thought that was odd and could indicate it's coming with Makeb, or not. That's much like we've discussed here. Justin thinks that for them to do it well it would take considerable resources. I'm not sure I agree with that, it wouldn't take more resources than adding any other companion. And I do hope BW had planned to bring more in. If not then yea it would take more resources, but sorry, that's their mess. Overall the guys seem to agree that it looks like this might be a next expansion or further down the road.

Before I duck out for a bit, I just wanted to mention another gift I've been given this year.

After severe drought and madness here in my home state, it's supposed to snow all day on the 25th.

If it has to be an expac or two down the road, they need to just tell the player base this. They can't string them along forever.

Man it's nice seeing this talked about openly again, with a lot of people left confused at BW's lack of an answer.

I got another letter from SWTORstrategies as I was checking my email before I lay down.

They did put the video link down at the bottom of the article of the comments section. So there it is.

He mentioned this little part:

I tipped massively about the article, with luck they will take it up. I 'm also posting it to n4g. If we are in luck someone will post it to LGBT Reddit.

cheers

I just posted the article to Reddit's LBGT subreddit. Hopefully it helps pass along the information.

Thank you. I know a lot of straight gamers out there feel the same. I know because I am one of them. Happy Xmas to you too.

I've made a habit of checking in on this issue every couple of weeks and am continually disappointed in the lack of updates from Bioware's side. This issue has simply been mishandled on a scale that would make 3D Realms blush with envy. Hoping for an early Christmas present update on it though.

I posted on my social network site about this to my gaming friends. When I did, I sent out the hue and cry, and I know a few of them in turn will also do the same, since we all share a common belief that SGRA's are actually beneficial to the game, and sorely needed. One of my friends had recently stated that he finally had noticed the lack of them, in TOR, and felt cheated, seeing his experiences with other BW titles and the inclusion of SGRA's in them. Keep your chins high and sabres lit! We're rallying the troops on this!
