Little Jedi is 4.  She really wants to be like mommy and daddy on the computer, but she isn’t quite there yet.  Right now she can move around a little and do one attack.  And drop us off the edge of Coruscant.


LJ (learning about moving with WASD): W runs FORWARD.  S runs BACK.  E runs THIS WAY.  Q runs THAT WAY.  F does NUFFING!


LJ: Momma are you pewing the guys?

(“pewing” is her term for blaster fire or lightsaber-ing.)

Me: That’s right.  Momma’s pewing the bad robots.


LJ: Daddy where’s your cat friend?

(Companions are “friends” and Aric Jorgen is a “cat”.)

Joun (husband): Cat man is getting me money.

LJ: Oh. Ok.  Mommy where’s Kira?

Me: Kira’s on the ship. My friend is a doctor.  He’s right over there.

LJ: Some doctors are boys and some doctors are girls.  Daddy has a girl doctor (Elara).  Mommy has a boy doctor (Doc).


LJ: Mommy, who’s your friend?

Me: His name is Lord Scourge.

LJ: I don’t like Lord Scourge.  He’s gonna bite us.


LJ: Seven-Tee (T7-01) is a good pew-er!

LJ: Seven-Tee is a hero!

LJ: Seven-Tee is R2-D2’s grandpa.

(If you have a better way to explain “droid model predecessor” to a 4-year-old, I’d love to hear it.)


LJ: Daddy where’s your speederbike?

Joun: Daddy put it away…

LJ: I want a speederbike.  We buy one at the store?


Little Jedi’s Impressions of SWTOR — 9 Comments

  1. You can fall of the edge of Coruscant? I hadn’t tried . . .

    Luckily for me, my youngest Jedi is almost 9. But when she was 4, she was dropping my WoW Druid out of flight form way up above Shattrath and watching her go splat on the ground . . . Yea . . .

    • If it is possible to fall off something, I have fallen off it. The other day I fell off Coruscant BETWEEN THE BANNISTERS on a ramp down. I blame my sentinel’s size 1 body that slipped right through.

      • I’ve fallen through a walkway in a big black hole in the Esseles. Didn’t kill me either. Had to wait for /stuck to kill me (which took 2 minutes and two attempts) to get back to the entrance.

        I somehow do not think this is intended behavior, but it is proof that you can fall off anything. Even through the floor.

  2. Yep, fallen a fair old way myself at the central speeder zone, trying to jump cut the corner.

    And little jedis comments seem to be on the money so far for this game 🙂

    • Now I have to figure out how to get a T7 cake topper for her next birthday. She was very specific on that point.
