So I think I figured out why at 6:00 PM yesterday I could log in to SWTOR just fine, and why at 8:45 PM I couldn't. I don't have anything to back this up, but I strongly suspect that setting up an and loading the Origins launcher in order to DL Dragon Age at 8:15-ish set like some sort of global EA product password.
That's the only thing I can think of. I have a very specific mnemonic that I (used to) use, and I verified that all the buttons on my keyboard were working, so I am 99.9% positive I was getting my password correct.
To prepare for next month's Dragon Age: Inquisition, EA's giving out the first game in BioWare's fantasy RPG series on the house right now. You'll need an Origin account to download a free copy of Dragon Age: Origins, but hey, it's a great game, and it's
As everyone knows, at the end of The Empire Strikes Back, the rogue-ish and daring adventurer Han Solo (played by Harrison Ford) was encased in carbonite. This left him in a coma-like state of suspended animation for one year (in movie time), until the ev

I feel like I'm being unhelpful by wanting to just go off and level an alt or farm for a specific decoration I want instead of grouping up for dailies and weeklies that get us conquest points.
So yeah, just blah. I feel like I'm not being a team player here, and I guess if I don't log in, I can tell myself I'm not contributing because I'm in an "XCom mood" or a "Mass Effect mood" or something.
Congratulations, gamer girls-you're officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Wom
