Dragon Age Writer On Characters’ Bisexuality

A peculiar accusation was made against Dragon Age II on the BioWare forums, in which a user accused the game of not properly catering for the straight male gamer. Honestly, I'd launched into writing this with the intention of factually reporting it, but just typing those words has made me want to start throwing chairs. What? Good grief, even if that were true, which it…

EA Retracts Game Ban For Forum Violation

Wow, well here's a crazy update. After being repeatedly told that he was intentionally locked out of his EA games because he broke the rules on the BioWare forum, and that this was in accordance to the Terms Of Service that he'd agreed to, this morning's internet famous man, Arno, has just been told that it was in fact a mistake.

EA Forum Bans Can Lock You Out Of Games

UPDATE: EA are now saying this was a mistake, and Arno has access to his games during the ban. Original story: Be careful what you say. That's the lesson BioWare forum user Arno has learned in the last 24 hours, after an ill-advised comment on the BioWare forums has led to his EA account being locked, such that he cannot play his purchased copy of…

Dragon Age II Officially Extra-Prettified

Dragon Age II is available for download today! If you're American, anyway. If you're in Europe, a magical temporal vortex of data-sucking horror slap-bang in the middle of the Atlantic is delaying the several gigabytes that comprise the digital version from reaching these shores. I mean, I presume it's that. There's no other rational explanation for introducing a gap of 3 days in an age…

Dragon Age II DLC… Already? This Is Silly

Oh I don't understand videogames any more. I feel like such an old man, harking back to the days when the game would come out, and then eight months later there'd be an add-on. Now I'm not sure if I'm only getting a fraction of the intended game when I open the box, what with pre-order bonuses, special editions with extra quests, and most of…

The Dragon Age 2 Demo Is Out Today

Still nothing unlocked on the Dragon Age 2 demo page, but the demo is apparently out later today. We'll keep this post updated, so please put links in comments once it's live so we can get some mirrors and stuff. That said, I don't know whether the mirrors will count towards Bioware's one million downloads challenge, in which they've offered to unlock some in-game items…

That’ll Be The Day: The Dragon Age TV Show

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…

Dragon Age II Goes Gold, 55 Mins Of Footage

One day, in the distant future, we will have online meetings, conversations and indeed demos of games that don't begin with. "Uh... uh... yeah... I think so, yes, just give me... Hi! I think things are working now? Can you hear me at your end? Yes? Good, great, let's get started." A new walkthrough live chat trailer thing has appeared for Dragon Age II, which…

Dragon Age’s Hawke Is Three Champions

So, after having too many options for creating a character in Dragon Age: Origins, we are now down to just three options for the Hawke character chap in Dragon Age 2, II, Two. He can be a mage! (DUDES GET MAGICKED TO DEATH!) He can be a rogue! (DUDES GET STABBED TO DEATH!) He can be a warrior! (DUDES GET UH MORE STABBED I GUESS!)…

Dragon Age 2 DRM Is Different

This forum post on the Bioware forums has detailed how the Dragon Age 2 DRM will work. The Steam version will use Steam, and nothing else. For the retail version there is no limit to install, no disc check, and are online checks, which mean that only five PCs can be used to play a single version of the game within a 24-hour period. While…

Dragon Space 2 Armour in Dead Age 2

When it was announced that there would be Dragon Age armour in Mass Effect 2, it may have gone crashing through the fourth wall like a confused rhinoceros, but at least the two games came from the same developer. It's bemusing to try to fathom how the two universes might cross over, but we got over it. But for Dragon Age 2 you'll be able…

Dragon Age II & The Downloadable Prince

I don't know why it should seem weird for DLC to be teased ahead of a game being release, but it just does, okay! It's like announcing your new haircut before you're finished growing the current one, or something. It's just getting ahead of yourself! Anyway, Dragon Age 2's Exiled Prince actually comes with pre-ordered versions of the "Signature Edition" of the game, which can…

Dragon Age 2 Wants You Back

There's been a tangy whiff of "hmm" around Dragon Age 2 amongst the PC faithful, with the game apparently headed in something of a press all the buttons kill all the monsters press them kill them press them kill them direction we perhaps hadn't expected from our beloved tactics'n'conversation opus. Turns out that perhaps we've got the wrong impression, though. Now, while this video makes…

Dragon Age 2 Rising To Power

How are we all feeling about Dragon Age 2? Quintin wasn't too impressed when he played it at this year's GamesCom, but me - with no experience of the game - I'm determinedly optimistic. I mean, it's not like BioWare messes up very often. However, if picking my ideal Dragon Age sequel, I wouldn't have it be more action orientated. Quite the opposite. They spent…
