I hate Dragon Age Inquisition’s stupid install rule

Dragon Age is one of those series that I always wanted to play, but never had the time or money to allocate toward it. However, I picked up Dragon Age Inquisition during the Amazon Cyber Monday sale, because I’ve heard so many good things about it. I waited patiently for it to come in the more »
