|The Old Republic|
Keen mentioned on his blog that no one in the authorized press seems to be taking a stand with the partial lifting of the NDA for Star Wars: The Old Republic. Well Keen, let me step in here and muddy the waters. Star Wars: The Old Republic will be the largest disaster in gaming history, but Bioware says I can’t talk about the details.
My original plan for this post was to take the official press impressions of the beta and review them. The whole "review the reviewers" and "read between the lines" type of criticism I like to get into. Unfortunately the hawks at Bioware were on my tweet to Keen in a heartbeat and to my astonishment, before looking into what I was actually going to post about, they informed me I wasn't allowed to talk. Of course I tweeted furiously that they have no say in whether I cover the press previews in a blog post.
In turn I was basically called a filthy NDA-breaking blogger who "didn't care". Sadly, I do care or well I did care. Instead of getting into some petty "you're talking about the previews, but we know you're really talking about your beta testing" argument, I'm just not going to talk about the game. In fact, this is last post that will ever mention the title on this blog. It will be the Brett Favre of /r/nfl and henceforth be known as "the game that shall not be named".
As for my original, long-winded post about the game? All you need to know is that the game is under tight NDA wraps with less than two months until launch.
