Magic Makeovers: Dragon Age Inq Adding Customisation

By Alice O'Connor on February 14th, 2015.

Mirror mirror, on the wall, give me blue hair and make me six feet tall.

Give me a long, sprawling RPG with appearance options and I will replay the first hour at least six times. I didn’t realise how ugly that haircut actually is. I didn’t know its lighting would make that skin tone so ugly. I’d forgotten to make them interesting from behind. On reflection, that hair colour is awful. What was I even thinking with that tattoo?

But lawks a lummy, Maxis have only gone and released that part for free! The ‘Create A Sim’ character creator has been yanked out of the full game to make a demo (or we can treat it as simply a cool toy for everyone to play with). Nab it from Origin. This came out last week, but we overlooked it in all the fuss and bother of Gamescom. Luckily, pulling silly faces is timeless.

Star Trek Online: Characters Creatored

By John Walker on December 18th, 2009.

It's okay, they're behind glass.

The Star Trek Online beta has for some reason allowed us in. So of course this means spending my entire afternoon playing with the character creator. It’s made by Cryptic. Can you guess whether it’s brilliant or not? It’s brilliant.

By John Walker on October 13th, 2009.

He's the sort of rugged hero you can trust. To bore you about values and honour. Create someone more fun, please.

You can get it in English directly from clicking here, or if you’re after another language head to the official Dragon Age site, in the column on the right.
