Thanks for visiting - Banana Shoulders has retired! If you'd like to catch up with what I'm playing and writing lately, check out Siha Games!, my general MMO and gaming blog.

Oct 01

So, that new project I talked about?

CrewSkills, my all-new gaming blog.

CrewSkills is a Star Wars: The Old Republic blog; it’ll have a primary focus on crafting, trade skills, and the crew skills system in general. You can also expect to find other stuff there of the kind I used to post here; general gameplay discussion, guides to in-game content, conversation about whatever class I wind up playing, and all that other good stuff. If you liked Banana Shoulders, and you’re planning on playing SW:TOR, you’ll like CrewSkills too.

…I hope! ;) Feedback is always welcome, of course, and I’d especially love to hear from anybody who’s planning on trying out SW:TOR when it launches in December. I’m really excited about CrewSkills (the blog – and the game system, too) and I’m looking forward to diving in from scratch. I’ve well and truly got the blogging buzz again.

I’s not likely fer ta migrate ta SWTOR – Azeroth still be workin’ fer me, and the missus gets creeped out by science fiction. But I’s got a curiosity or two, so I’ll be readin’ CrewsKills neverthelesses. Wishin fun on the new adventure!

I appreciate all the effort you spent on Banana Shoulders and used it so much, especially pre-Ulduar.

I have my CE ordered from Amazon.

I am, barely, gold-capped in WoW and hav returned to EVE Online so crafting is of considerable interest. I never played SWG so a lot of the explanations of TOR in terms of SWG and KOTOR are lost on me. I hope you can provide some crafting for ex-WoW players.

I am trying to not get my hopes up; in spite of my preferences I understand if due to time constraints crafting is not as robust in as I would like. ( You don’t ship a game on 12/20 unless you are running a tad late. )

And so BS evolves to CS; I shall see you there and have added it to my google Reader.

It’s delightful to see you back writing again.

I’m not sure yet about SWTOR but if I do play I’ll certainly read your thoughts.
