This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-173 talk about the continuing updates from Bioware in the most recent dev stream and also a detailed discussion on why RNG is not what we deserve but is likely what we need. We also touch on other game and community news for the week from SWTOR in general and remind everyone that our casual, family-friendly multi-game guild is always looking for new members. Our officer channel on Jedi Covenant is at /cjoin aielfo and more guild information is at http://aie-guild.info/swtor
Fast forward right to about 22:30 min (21 min in the mp3) if you want to get to the part where we talk about RNG. Here’s the behavioral science links I mentioned as well:
Wikipedia on BF Skinner and schedules of reinforcement.
Great blog post summarizing how this science applies to game design.
