No Reused Levels: Details Of Dragon Age 3 Emerge

Rumours are flying that Dragon Age 3 might be something more like the sequel to Dragon Age we've been hoping for. After Dragon Age 2 came out feeling more like a side-project, BioWare have dropped some hefty hints that they're looking to redress much of that in an unannounced third game for the series. At a PAX East panel, as spotted by Eurogamer and recorded…

Dragon Age Multiplayer in BF3 Engine?

Activate the rumour siren! Bee-WOOP! Etc. Kotaku have posted saying that an "insider" has revealed a multiplayer Dragon Age game in the pipeline. Here's the vague heart of the rumour: "The insider wasn't sure if Dragon Age multiplayer was going to be part of a full, stand-alone title (ala Dragon Age 3) or available separately as a downloadable game. It is apparently being developed on…

DA2 Expand-O-Pack: Better, Tougher, Morer

When Dragon Age II: Legacy comes out on July 26, it will mark the first real chance that developers Bioware have had to respond to the criticism you lot (you know who you are) sent their way after DA2’s initial release. It was a particular problem for the many fans of DA: Origins, who largely felt that the second instalment just didn’t produce the kind…

Golems!

I love golems, best of all the magically animated constructs. They're my friends. It's fortunate for me, then, that Bioware have announced the next bit of DLC for Dragon Age as being Golems of Amgarrak, in which you can head out of Orzammar to hunt for the dark secrets of the big stone dudes, and recover a lost dwarven expedition. It features new creatures and…

The Mass-Effectification of Dragon Age 2

Why change a winning formula? That's what I was left wondering after discovering that, on the one hand, Dragon Age sold better than any Bioware game ever as of November, and on the other, that the formula is changing dramatically for Dragon Age 2. It's worth noting that the PC version isn't changing as much as the console versions of the game. We will apparently…

Thief: DS For £2.09?! And Other Bargains

The Steam summer sale thingamy is continuing to offer some ludicrously good prices, as it happens. I've just spotted some for which there's only six hours left, which should fill in some vital gaps on your virtual shelf. There's Thief: Deadly Shadows for £2.09, BioShock for £3.49, and Titan Quest Gold for £2.49. There's also Dragon Age, about 80 hours of game, for £11.99. I…

Have U Got The New Look? ME2/DA Make-up

I came to Mass Effect 2 late, and after a couple of weeks of man-chat and man-shoot, finished it off last night. And so, I wandered off to Youtube to have a look for some of the choices I stepped away from and to relive my sexing of a mental lizard. At which point, I come across the make-up tutorials of UtopianDream (Who's affiliated with…

I Envy You Because…

...You'll download this Dragon Age texture pack, and it'll just work for you and it'll look super-spanky and that will be that. Me, I've wasted over three hours trying to make this collection of spit'n'polished graphics take with my own DA install, hoping to be saved from the disappointingly muddy visuals of what was otherwise one of the finest games of 2009, but I'm still…

The Ongoing Saga Of Dragon Age DLC

UPDATE: SEE BELOW I keep having these grand plans for writing about the Dragon Age DLC. Since the game came out I've intended a Wot I Think summing up the content subsequently released for my favourite game of last year. But at every turn I have been thwarted by a confusion of DLC management. An enormous array of bugs and errors are making it near-impossible…

Dragon Age: Awakening Confirmed, Priced

Before I begin, other news: Return To Ostagar, today's DLC release, has been delayed. No word when it will appear. Sadpanda. Onward. After yesterday's scurrilous rumours of a potential Dragon Age expansion called The Awakening this March, the truth has come out. There's a Dragon Age expansion due this March, but it's called Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening. There's no "The". Take that, Eurogamer.cz, with…

Dragon Age: Return To Ostagar + Rumours

Dragon Age is getting bigger. A little bit bigger tomorrow, and then perhaps rather significantly bigger in March. If the words spoken by Czech Eurogamer are true, we could be seeing Dragon Age: The Awakening in a couple of months. (Via That VideoGame Blog.) When I spoke to EA bods before the game was released I was told, "We've got at least 30 hours more…

I’m A Naughty Boy: Respecs In Dragon Age

I rather painfully hit a wall in Dragon Age a couple of weeks back, finding my enjoyment stymied by the twin tediums of getting killed far too much and getting bored of wandering endless dwarven caverns and elven forests that required an absurd amount of backtracking through narrow, empty corridors. (Really, would it be so wrong to turn on the instant map travel system in…

Rock Lord: Dragon Age’s Number One Guy

Danger! Danger! This contains a few minor, character-specific spoilers - but nothing to do with DA's main plot. My first few hours with Bioware's latest had more worried I wasn't going to be entertained. Sure, I was having fun, but my party, the people I was travelling with, were pretty dry. Facetious holy warrior Alistair had a nice line in comic deflections, but arch sorceress…

Face Off: Dragon Age Giveaway Results

Sorry about the delay on this. The plan was to judge it last night, but there were - er - unavoidable delays. In a pub. Sorry. However, I've judged the competition and selected the winners, turning this into a very Dragon-agey day indeed. Hopefully they'll have their copy of the Dragon's Age Direct2Drive shortly. The standard of entries were high. Many people did copies of…

First Steps With Dragon Age

We're playing Dragon Age. Except for John, because he's already finished it and reviewed it for PC Gamer. The rest of RPS were a bit later to the party, so to speak. Consequently we're a little... distracted. We offer a few early thoughts below. It's probably fair to say that there will be minor spoilers in this article.

Dragon Age Patch Out, Targets Difficulty Issue

Dragon Age playing masses, the 1.01 patch is out, and it's likely essential. Those who've seen my PC Gamer review, and indeed very many others saying the same, will have noticed complaints that the Easy difficulty level at certain points isn't altogether that easy. And I'll wager many playing on Normal aren't exactly finding it a breeze. The patch notes explain that they've, "made Easy…

Age of Panic: Dragon Age Compo

Over the weekend the Dragon Age pre-loading has started, meaning if you pre-order it - er - it'll start downloading. Early. And similar. Anyway, to celebrate this momentous event, Direct2Drive have given us five copies of the Digital Deluxe Edition to give away to you. Our fine readers. So it's compo time! To secure your copy of this much anticipated game, you have to use…
