Is it only me who is shocked at seeing Blaine Christine's face?

With all the layoffs at EAware and the people who left on their own, I can only guess at the amount of stress and additional work that has fallen on Blaine Christine's shoulders. Look at the poor guy's face, he seems completely dead tired, his eyes are rimmed and red, his skin is pale.
Maybe I am imagining things, but he seems overworked.
EAware has been killing its remaining developpers... "look we laid off two guys, the third guy remaining must now do the work of 3 persons but we don't care this must be done!"
Could it be the real reason the two founders left Bioware?...

Compare to the same Blaine five months ago at E3 for patch 1.3

Evidently Bioware has banned razors as a means to save money....

He looks tired and there's no doubt workload has increased, but he also has more facial hair, and the lighting is very different. At E3, he had a spotlight on his face. This new video looks dim and yellowy by comparison. I'm sure there was a higher energy level at the convention, too.

I'm not exactly disagreeing with you, and I certainly don't want to pick on Blaine. I'm just pointing out a few factors to consider.

other than that, looking forward to the rest of items!
yea the throne looks stupid, come on Bioware let us use our ships as playing housing so we can have thrones like that on ship and trophy's etc and while we at it can you please finally allow use to sit down on seats.

From the video it even looked like it went up to speeder piloting 3 so would ba as fast if not faster than speeders. So people will be flying around on floating thrones. And yet sitting on a stationaty chair is too much work.
Lol, totally agree here. A throne should not be a level 3 speeder. Interesting idea to add 'cosmetic' weaponry. I think that's a neat idea. Though if they really want to do well in my humble opinion they'd give players a place to store trinkets etc in 3d (not a bank or inventory). Maybe be able to put things in your ship.. but I know I'm going off on a tangent. I'm interested to see what else is going to be on the cartel market.
