Well blow me down! BioWare are releasing a DLC-bundling Game of the Year Edition of one of their RPGs! It's been a while since the last - long years of me grumbling about EA's add-on pricing and decision to stop making easy ways to buy the whole thing.The GotY Edition of Dragon Age: Inquisition [official site] is coming soon too, on October 6th. It'll include…

Not Dinosaurs: Dragon Age’s Trespasser DLC Released

You've inquired, exsanguinated, and imbibed your way across half of Thedas, but now the adventures in Dragon Age: Inquisition [official site] are drawing to a close. BioWare today released the final DLC for their fantasy RPG, named Trespasser (no, not dinosaurs), and say "Character relationships and big moments are at the forefront of the Inquisitor's final adventure."

Dragon Age - Inquisition [official site] is getting what basically looks like a Diablo-style descent into the depths of the Deep Roads - an enormous network of tunnels that originally belonged to the dwarven empire and is now full of bad dudespawn. Named The…

Six Hours Of World-Saving – Dragon Age: Inquisition Demo

As a sprog replaying demos again and again to draw out the stretches between getting new games, I loathed timed demos. I'd happily replay the same two or three levels over and over. As a growed-up, mind, I'd much rather have a one-off timed chunk to explore a game and see what it's really about. It's especially handy for open-world games - difficult or pointless…

Swinging A Stick: How Landscape And Childhood Are Key To The Continued Popularity Of Fantasy Fiction

Once at primary school I tried to convince my teacher that we needed a new word - or at least that we needed one that might exist already, but that we’d somehow forgotten. This is going to be a piece partly about words, and “fantasy” was one that I was never totally happy with. It lacked, as I saw it, the generic precision of “science-fiction,”…

Video game forests: yes, more please, thank you. Big trees, dappled sunlight, ferns, moss, lichen, wild flowers, and hidden ponds: ooh twist my arm.BioWare released the first singleplayer DLC story hunk for Dragon Age: Inquisition [official site] today and while I understand there's something about Inquisitors and dragons in it, the real take-away is that it has a big forest. With ferns, tree houses, mystic…

Magic Makeovers: Dragon Age Inq Adding Customisation

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? And…

Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch Ups The Banter

I was reading through Dragon Age: Inquisition's 1.03 patch notes for the information on how the banter system has changed. I haven't actually got to Inquisition yet in my playing of the series so I was kind of peeking but trying to squint so I could look away at the first sign of a spoiler* without having accidentally read the whole thing.The banter change is…

What Are You Playing This Weekend?

This weekend I am scratching my BioWare itch by playing copious amounts of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Who needs a real social life when you have BioWare making so many virtual people for me to make friends with?Truth be told I was not going to bother with Dragon Age: Inquisition. Don't get me wrong I love the Mass Effect trilogy for all of it's obvious flaws,…

Dragon Age: The Ferelden Scrolls #6 – Pockets

Continuing a Dragon Age: Inquisition diary. Spoilers once again.The kleptomania's out of control. In any new location, my first activity is to raid the place. Sure, sure, I'm the Herald of Andraste, I'm here to rescue you, blah blah, but first - what's in your cupboards?

Dragon Age: The Ferelden Scrolls #5 – Politics

Continuing a Dragon Age: Inquisition diary. Pretty heavy spoilers in this one, probably.It's not easy, being a member of a magical class that most of the world is convinced will destroy it. It's also not easy being a member of a race who like demons and have, in the eyes of some, a culture of religious oppression. This place doesn't trust mages and it doesn't…

Dragon Age: The Ferelden Scrolls #4 – Ride A Red Hart

Continuing my Dragon Age: Inquisition diary. Earlier chapters here, and once again there are mild spoilers of a sort. I've spent most of my time so far rambling (and in the game, etc). Off to find a campsite over there; off to close a rift on top of these cliffs here; off to recruit a Grey Warden who's hiding out in some fishing huts; off…
