Disavowed is Star Wars: The Old Republic's next chapter, coming March 10

I played a teensy weensy bit of Star Wars: The Old Republic when it first came out, but I was doing it on a shitty laptop and was discouraged by how poorly it was performing. Chris says that the game is currently the best it has ever been, ...   read

Dragon Age: Inquisition's DLC epilogue is called Trespasser
