While I'm on board the Star Wars: The Old Republic train (at least until SOE's Star Wars: The New Republic comes out in 2014 and forces SWTOR to shut down), I can certainly sympathize with the frustration that non-fans are feeling right about now.

It's the final day of Gamescom 2011 and that makes this the final podcast from the show, but don't be sad, the guys are going out with style a bang. Harmonix's John Drake and Eric Pope join-in, and their presence means the show has at least 1000% more apple pie talk than it would otherwise. Ga...
