  • A Quick Primer to the Gap Between Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition Dragon Age Inquisitionhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXX3omLY_JM
    Here’s a quick video showing how the end of Dragon Age II led to the beginning of Dragon Age: Inquisition. That whole mage rebellion thing went over even worse than you would have thought, and the situation at the beginning of the new game is a powder keg waiting to blow.
    Dragon Age: Inquisition is out Tuesday on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows.
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition Now Available for Early Play on EA Access Dragon Age: Inquisition doesn’t come out until Tuesday. But you can play it right now if you meet certain conditions.
    First, you need an Xbox One. Second, you need a subscription to EA’s EA Access service, which is a $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year service that allows access to EA Vault titles and five days early access to upcoming EA games.
    If you can tick those off, you get to download the full Dragon Age: Inquisition game and play it for six hours. Yeah, that’s all you get, which is just getting started in what’s reportedly an 80 or ...
  • I Saw a Cute Plush Mudcrab For Sale the Other Day, Horrible Creatures Mudcrab PlushAdmit it, when laid eyes on your first filthy, obviously smelly, muck eating mudcrab, all you could think was, “I want to snuggle with that.” And then it attacked you, of course.

  • Elder Scrolls Online Update Squashes Bugs From Last Update Undaunted GearThe most recent patch to The Elder Scrolls Online was massive, adding a new city, Undaunted daily quests, new facial animation and tons of gameplay tweaks.
    So of course it introduced a few gremlins of its own. ZeniMax Online Studios tried to push out a patch yesterday addressing some of those. Unfortunately, there was an error in the process and an older version of the patch which didn’t contain all the fixes was applied. ZOS said in a blog post it intends to try again on Thursday morning to complete the patching process.
    Here are the full patch notes or the patch ...
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s DLC Will Be Free Yep. Even the horse armor.
    The Witcher 3 will have 16 pieces of DLC, according to CD Projekt Red. But you won’t have to pay for any of them. The free DLC packs will begin releasing the day after the game is out Feb. 25 and follow every week. The first two sets will include some new armor for Geralt (and his horse) and new beards and mustaches for Geralt (sorry horse), a new look for Yennefer of Vengenberg and new quest.
    CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński explained the company’s approach in an open letter:
    We love games. We love collecting them, ...
  • Another Fallout 4 Hoax Shot Down Fallout 3https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Plz-bhcHryc
    Remember this classic scene from 2003 Academy Award Winner for Best Picture Ever Made The Room? This sums up how I feel, except the Lisa in this case is all the hoaxers out there who continually tease me with fake news about Fallout 4.
    The latest, according to PC Gamer, is a fake trademark filing for something called Fallout: Shadow of Boston. Now, I make it a personal policy to never go near Boston and it wouldn’t be my first choice for a Fallout game by any means, but I’d take it.
    There was a bit of a red flag that ...
  • The Blacksmiths Who Made This Helm Must Have Forged a Lot of Iron Daggers Iron Helmethttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k1foQTQoTQ
    Bethesda promoted this new video showing off an amazing recreation of the Dovakhiin’s iconic iron helmet. You know, the one that sort of sucks in the game so you throw it away as soon as you find something better?
    Matt and Kerry Stagmer of Baltimore Knife & Sword make a pretty much perfect replica of the helmet, then test it out with some strength tests that even the Dragonborn didn’t have to worry about.
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition Goes Gold Dragon Age: InquisitionLike many, I felt a little bit burned by Dragon Age II. But I’m willing to give BioWare another chance with the series, and news that Dragon Age: Inquisition has gone gold on all platforms and is on track to his store shelves Nov. 18 is welcome.
    The game’s executive producer, Mark Darrah, made the announcement in a blog post.
    We started working on this game in earnest more than four years ago, before we’d even finished Dragon Age II. Back then, our goal was simple: do whatever we had to in order to tell the biggest story we’d ever told in ...

  • New Video Explores FFXV’s Huge Open World FFXVhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJIjpl-vqlA
    Were you one of those people who felt a lot of Final Fantasy XII’s content felt like walking through a long hallway? Square Enix has listened to you, and seems to be pushing for the opposite extreme with its upcoming (some day) Final Fantasy XV.
    As you can see in the video above from Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae demo that will be released with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD in March 2015, XV presents an open world that isn’t too dissimilar to Skyrim, except that you can drive around it in a car and stop at gas stations.
    The world is packed ...
