The Day Is Here: Live Action Dragon Age, Ep 1

By Alec Meer on October 11th, 2011.

78% of the budget was spent on those ears

I haven’t watched this first episode of the Felicia Day-starring Dragon Age live action web series Redemption yet and thus would be A NASTY STINKY LIAR if I passed any comment on it at this stage, but I have embedded it below. Let’s watch it together!

Dragon Age: Better In Pixels Than Reality

By Alec Meer on October 5th, 2011.

Like Willow, but slightly different

Here’s the trailer for that live-action Dragon Age TV series, starring that woman people on Twitter all have a crush on, and it’s… Well.. It’s. Well. Well, it makes Dragon Age II seem an awful lot more palatable all of a sudden. Bless everyone involved, but the budget’s just not there, is it?

BioWare have just released a trailer for a fresh chunk of Dragon Age 2 DLC, Mark of the Assassin.

We’re in for a whole lot more of this kind of thing, I suspect. Assassin’s Creed 2 did it, Mortal Kombat’s doing it, and now Dragon Age 2 is planning it. As the web becomes ever-more important to marketing games, viral techniques are springing to the fore. And what’s more viral than a video you can embed all over the internet?

In this case, it’s to be a live-action, six-part online TV show set in Bioware’s Dragon Age universe. Both writing and starring in it is actor Felicia Day, a perennial Joss Whedon favourite and creator of WoW player-beloved MMO sitcom The Guild. So it probably won’t be a cheap affair, but what kind of tone will it take?
