Penny Arcade: TOR Game Testing Hands-On Impressions

If you’re a gamer, you no doubt know and love the Penny Arcade, and the guys that run it – Tycho and Gabe.

And if you’re a fan of TOR, you now have a reason to like them even more: Gabe is in the Game Testing program, and got permission to share some of his impressions!

This is pretty huge because outside of structured media events or immersion days, there really hasn’t been any authorized writeups from Game Testers!

Gabe doesn’t go into a whole lot of detail, but provides his initial impressions just as he promised:

I honestly think they are making something unique and fun here. I’ve enjoyed my time in the beta even more than I expected and it just continues to improve. I’m excited to see what the final product ends up looking like and how people respond to some of its ideas.

Head on over to Penny Arcade now to check out Gabe’s full writeup!

  1. Very happy to hear that Gabe/PA has such a positive opinion about it. Even though I plan on playing TOR anyways, PA’s one of the few sites that can influence me one way or the other about buying/playing a game.

    This was a great write-up. I really trust the opinions of both Gabe and Tycho (maybe Gabe a li’l more on the MMO front) and it’s nice to see some info from someone who has been able to play it for more than 20-30 minutes. That Bioware gave him free reign to write whatever he wanted without seeing it first tells me they trust their game. Thanks for the update, I might have missed this otherwise.
