The Daily Hotness: The Great Slicing Nerf of 2011

I don’t know how many of you are playing The Old Republic… so I’m going to pretend that you care either way. If you’re past level 25, you may have noticed something a bit frustrating- everything in the game is expensive as balls. Slicing was a small comfort to those of us not rolling in credits, and it was an easy way to just keep up with the ridiculously overpriced… everything. As of the path on Tuesday, however, everyone is now poor. Really poor. It’s a bit like our current real-world economic crap. So yeah… hopefully Oba… I mean BioWare fixes this soon so I can stop skimping on skill and equipment.

Anyway… Some stuff happened, Dtoid doesn’t like SOPA and I’m eating cake as I write this. Winter break is awesome.
