Preparing for SWTORmas December 20, 2011

Okay, I know you’ve already heard the news. And, I know you know exactly what this post is going to be about. But I’m going to yell it again anyway:

Star Wars: The Old Republic is scheduled to release December 20, 2011!

I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am for this game. I will admit that I was hoping for a November release, but this is going to be an amazing Christmas present. Or, rather, a SWTORmas present.

TG and I have decided to improve our pre-order quality as Christmas presents to each other. We are soon going to each be proud owners of the Collector’s Edition. We’ve never bought ourselves collector’s editions of any game coming out before. The Older Brother gifted me the Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Collector’s Edition for Xbox 360, and we did purchase two copies of the Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Collector’s Edition from Amazon when they were like $9. But, seriously, that’s it! And, here we are splurging $300 on a game. It’s a good thing we’ve been saving up our entertainment funds for a while, that’s for sure. Plus, we’re helping out our dear friend, Goon, with the difference between a standard and a Collector’s Edition.

We’re even talking about investing in the 6-month subscription price. Besides our LOTRO lifetime subscriptions, we’ve always stuck with the 1-month-at-a-time rates. Can you tell that this game is just taking over our lives in an oh-so-good way?

So, here’s what I want to know: How do you feel about the chosen release date? Are you going to help me work on my time machine to fast forward us to December? Do you have SWTORmas fever?

About Amanda

Amanda is a 20-something flailing gamer. While she loves MMORPGs, the company in them often triggers flare-ups of her social anxiety. Her all-time favorite games include Everquest Online Adventures, Eternal Sonata, the Animal Crossing series, Katamari Damacy, and Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. She lives on junk food, and her favorite books are equally trashy. She doesn't believe in putting two spaces after a period, but she does strongly believe in the serial comma. Unfortunately, she has a penchant for starting sentences with "and" and "but;" hopefully you won't hold that, or her excessive use of semicolons, against her.
