Star Wars: The Old Republic has another large patch coming it’s way, this time called the 1.2 Legacy patch, due to it’s emphasis on expanding the game’s Legacy system. The patch also contains many of the regular features to be expected of any major patch: bug-fixes, social additions (guild banks), expanded crafting, UI customization and class re-balancing. However, the 1.2 Legacy patch does not largely address an oft-cited problem with the game: lack of end-game multiplayer content.

Did you manage to pick up a copy of Avengers Vs X-men #1 today at your comic shop? Well, you certainly weren’t supposed to. Yet a number of comic shops around the world today didn’t seem to get that memo and put copies on shelves and into pull-lists a week ahead of schedule. However, are these comic shops truly at fault?
