Weekend Recap: Sun, SWTOR, and 18 days till Hyper Japan!
Well, despite the sunny temperature we ended up spending much of the weekend inside. For one, we’re weak… it was too freaking hot. It’s nice conceptually, and the sun is great, but Liz and I both start melting once the temperature goes above 24°C ish. While Liz is from Oklahoma, a place where you can expect 40°C+ weather (cooling to 30°C+ overnight) for weeks at a time, she’s not used to not having AC – everyone has AC in Oklahoma… stores, homes, cars, you name it. As for me? I’d say blame it on my being a Canadian, but I know plenty of Canadians who thrive in the heat. I guess I just prefer the cold.
The second reason we decided to stay inside was that this was the last double XP weekend for SWTOR. We played a fair bit, and I have to say we put it to good use. We got our Bounty Hunter (Mercenary) / Sith Inquisitor (Sorcerer) up to 50 (almost 52, actually). We haven’t actually finished the main story line yet… We got through the first map of Voss, completing every mission before deciding to skip the rest of the planetary missions and just focus on story line. We’re now done with Voss. Now, it’s off to Corellia. I think the plan is to once again just focus on finishing the story line. As it is, with the change to the commendation system, our modifiable gear is partially filled with Makeb level modifications, so even if we were playing individually we’d have a tough time finding a challenge on Corellia. Here’s hoping that focusing on the class missions only we’ll manage to finish these story lines tonight.
That’s pretty much it for the weekend update. So, instead, here’s something exciting: 10 days till vacation! And 18 days till Hyper Japan!
We really can’t wait. More and more information on what will be available there is being released on the site every day. They’ve now released the main stage programme. It obviously could change between now and then, but it gives a good idea of what will be going on.

As prep-work, I found this (slightly older, but still relevant) post on chopstick etiquette: Just How Rude are You? The Chopstick Test on Hey from Japan- Notes on Moving, Emily Cannell
Hmmm… I did decently, but there were apparently a couple things that I’ll need to keep in mind (namely, passing things to Liz from my chopsticks to hers).
So, anyone else going to attend Hyper Japan?
