Friday's Update September 23: Smugglers, Twileks, Blood of the Empire

First and foremost, for the BotE haters out there, good news: It's over. For the lovers, it's also over. You can read the last issue here.

In other news, Bioware has updated the Smuggler page with their specialisations. The Gunslinger's info confirms that yes, you will be able to dual wield hairdryers.

Speaking of smugglers, you know what they love? Spaceships. Especially ones filled with Wookiees.

And lastly, it's eye candy time. Added to the inhabitants section are Twi'leks, so you can learn about their tragic past whilst you ogle them. If you look carefully you might notice that BW only posted pictures of male Twi'leks.


Let's kill ourselves.

Dang....like I said before, Bioware is surely pimping up those specialisation classes to lure players away from the obvious Jedi choices.

That gunslinger...SO appealing to me. Why melee a Jedi when you can shoot him....nice.

One of those Sith Lords in Blood of the Empire looks like a robot clown. Not the best design I've seen. All the other updates are pretty much old news, though it's nice to see some more screenshots of the Smuggler spaceship.

The Comic was terrible start to finish, hopefully they can start giving us more game play detail now.

The ship looks like the offspring of the Ebon Hawk and the Millennium Falcon, but the smuggler still looks like an attractive class though I'm still leaning toward the Imperial Agent.

I have to say the story of Blood of the Empire is pretty good (though the artwork isn't), with a very classic Star Wars feel to it, yet still original on the whole (the twist ending was damn good).

I liked the whole Blood of the Empire storyline. Even the artwork. I'm not sure that he has the skills needed to retain his newfound position - since he isn't really the best of fighters - but his strange nature was one to the end: he was a torn character and what he does to Maggot shows that clearly.

Yeah, I first got the impression he was like Dustil. With the Sith, but with obvious doubts. He was nice to maggot, criticized his Sith teachers...but in the end, he apparently did get consumed by hatred..
