Oh, and if I make a female Inquisitor, DEFINITELY Ashara. Btw, Azura Skye did a great job on that episode of Grimm last season.
Yes, yes, I like your taste

I'd add Kaliyo for Fem!Agent too. But, having my Fem!Agent hopelessly in love with Watcher 2 is also appealing for some reason.

Appropos, today's Facebook & Twitter daily question is "If you could choose any companions to romance who would it be and why?"

I pointed out (on Twitter, on Facebook and in a new thread I started for the purpose on the Community forum) that this is kind of a crappy thing to ask since a.) nothing we say can affect which companions will be SGR enabled and b.) after over a year of asking, we still have no idea which ones will be, even though the development team must can't not know.

You can see my vitriolic thread here. Now taking bets on how soon it is locked, as I have zero expectation of it actually being answered at this stage of the game.

Saw you there, said 'hi', give it about half an hour before it becomes a troll-filled homophobic cesspit that they allow to fester for the night and then they delete it about 0800BST.

Sent a PM to Ms. Berryman and Mr. Gonzalez with regards to Uluain's latest thread:

Quote:
Hello Mr Gonzalez,

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=547395

It may interest you to know that the latest question of "If you could choose any companions to romance who would it be and why?" is particularly insensitive to those of us who have been campaigning for the addition of same-gender romances as it reenforces the fact that it is not possible for male characters to romance male companions or female characters to romances female companions.

As you can see Uluain has posted a public letter addressing these concerns, but as we can expect of the community it will soon be filled with homophobic vitriol which will be allowed to continue until one of the forum moderators decides to delete the thread. As such I will provide you the initial post, so that you can see if before the meaning is lost:

I keep an eye on the official SWTOR feed on Facebook and Twitter, and one of the regular features is a daily question for fans to answer.

Today, the question was "If you could choose any companions to romance who would it be and why?"

I have no idea who came up with this as something to ask. But really?

Seeing as there are players still waiting to begin romantic stories whenever same-gender options make it into the game and seeing as in spite of the question having been current prior to Stephen Reid's announcement of same-gender romantic options a year ago last month we still have not been told which companions will be available as same-sex romantic partners, the Community Team is still pushing companion romance as a story feature.

Worse, whatever my answer, it couldn't possibly affect the outcome of the content in development. The design team already know which companions are having these options written, voiced and animated. Whether I said Pierce or Quinn or whoever, it would make no difference in the development of the game.

So just tell us already. Quit shoving the fact that there is content from which we were deliberately and unapologetically excluded at launch in our faces while ignoring questions we've been asking about this content for over a year. This is a pretty crappy way to treat players you claim to value. And we've been more than patient. I am done being patient. Tell us, or tell us why you won't.
I imagine with Free2Play you will force us in the LGBT community to pay for content which should have been available at release. Such a thing would be quite unacceptable.

Regards.

Well, that was quicker than expected. I guess at least they apologised? Either way, I hope Uluain also contacted Ms. Berryman and Mr. Gonzalez.

Answer, 35 minutes to lock a thread. Nine months to reply to one without answering any questions. Like, ever.

Good job.

It certainly shows you their priorities.

Well, here's my optimistic thought of the day. We'll start hearing more about future expansion content starting in December, being the game's 1 year anniversary. Perhaps some answers for SGR will come up then. If not, then I really don't know I'd say at that point we can safely assume that whatever was being planned that Daniel Erickson referred to, it's been pushed back, or worse. Ok that was part optimistic, part pessimistic.
