Game Update 4.7 and KotFE’s finale are just days away, and the Dark vs Light event continues as part of the ongoing celebration of SWTOR’s fifth anniversary year. We discuss the new pack opening experience, EA’s latest quarterly earning results, and more.
Chillsatan’s adventures continue, though his priapism has (thankfully) been cured.
