My wife was absolutly sure she would not like this game, she is farily new ( 2 years ) to MMO's and has played a couple of them.

He got in the weekend beta after thanksgiving and fell in love with SWTOR

LOVES the game, she will be very excited tonight when she finds out that she just now got in.
I have a bad feeling about this

I think the only thing that would "concern" me about teaming for class missions (honestly, regardless of WHICH class, because eventually I will play them all)... is that being a "spectator" on someone else's class-mission, will be nothing but storyline spoilers. And at least ONCE through, I would like to experience the story on my own, in the correct order.

I think that makes sense right???

Where is my "GO TO A BLANK SCREEN, AND TAKE A BIO BREAK/GO GET A BEER/SLICE OF PIZZA WHILE THE ACTIVE PLAYER WATCHES THE CLIP" option?

I am always open for advice.... Although right now, the kids are SO stinking jealous that Mommy and Daddy are playing a Star Wars game... I let them watch the opening cinematic, and they just sat there with glazed over eyes. My sons are 8, 6 and 4... and they live and breath all things Star Wars. In THAT regard, I believe I have done a stellar job as a parent

It's a beer house. I'm more of a beer snob than a liquor snob. It's a life-choice really. However, I only let the kids drink water. Tap water. None of those silly filters either, if it's coming out brown/orange, that's the same as taking an iron vitamin supplement... And those things are expensive!

That is my answer EVERY time... "Didn't you JUST go??? Geez son, learn to hold your beer, because once you pop-the-cork, you're gonna be peeing all night long."

Stop letting your children do the work. hit them yourself, you lazy bugger.
It's called "delegating"..... Learn it. Live it.

We husbands with gaming wives have to stick together.

Let's review the facts regarding the concept of the video-gaming-wife:

1- Presumably, you find her attractive, otherwise you likely would not have married her. This qualifies her as "hot".

2- If she married you, that means she is probably open to the idea of having sex with you, possibly on a regular basis. This combined with #1 above, means you are sleeping with a "hot woman who wants you naked."

3- She plays online computer games. This makes her "awesome".

4- More specifically: she plays an online computer game about STAR WARS. This makes her "perfect".

So let's review; The video-gaming-wife is:

"An awesomely hot woman, who is perfect, and wants to get you naked."

Epic Win.
