Star Wars: The Old Republic coming December 20th
Posted on September 24, 2011 by OG

Talk about a last minute Christmas gift, EA and Bioware have announced that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be coming out December 20th of THIS YEAR.  Star Wars fans will be able to waste their holidays by grinding level with their Galactic Republic or Sith Empire character rather than spending all their time bitching about the changes in the Star Wars Trilogy on Blu-ray.

Subscription fees for the game will follow the standard $14.99 per month with copies including the first 30 days for free.  Players expecting to play for the long run can choose to go with a 3 month subscription or 6 month subscription for a discounted charge of $41.97 or $77.94 respectively.  

If you're kind of teetering on whether to let the Force flow through you in The Old Republic, watch the RPG Fanatics's "Top 5 Reasons Why Star Wars The Old Republic May Not Kill WoW" video below:

What did you think of the Mass Effect 3 ending?

It was the right ending for the game, I don't understand all the bitching going on.
The ending was appalling, and Bioware should change it or admit they're wrongdoings.
