I custom built a rig just for swtor. What were they thinking not to give the option? What are they doing about it? Where is an update??

Aren't we the best placed to decide the balance between performance and quality on our own computers? Why are we subjected to a blanket nazi policy to suit the lowest common denominator?

Truth be told, I think they did it to safeguard their launch from bad press. Well numpties - launch is over. Can the grownups get a go now?

After 2 months this game still looks like a console port to PC - W T F!!!!?

Doing my daily
Decided to do it with what what I deem Quote of the Day.

Oh and for those who have no idea what I'm on about:

This game is so restrictive and linear in every possible way. Even to the point of telling us we will deciede who gets loot in a normal mode operation. Ive played since beta build 2 and saw the half a day high rez pacs. the game was vastly different in terms of the way gear worked. there were several ways you could mod gear . And the leveling process was a bit slower. I am not sure were Bioware is going with this game in the future but a good portion of people reacted like the just ate dog poo when they first booted this game up on its low rez graphics.

EA has been doing a ton of chest pounding but i will be curious to see if they will be mouth flapping in april. BW needs to add end game content fluff features and fix bugs all at the same time

Hmm im not sure but it looks like they enabled high res textures for our own chars. Maybe my eyes cheat me after long day of work but after patch my char looks much better.

Accepted and shared with party members.
Relabeling future patches as Expansions, just like EA Louse said a year ago. Who got the last laugh?

So Skyrim just released their High Res texture pack today. How come no one was screaming about them not launching with it. That was a game that was supposed to be all about the graphics.
