Bioware

There has been a debate going around about patching in content after a game is made, released, and sold. I’m not talking about DLC, oh no, what I mean is content that should have been in the game originally, but was cut out due to constraints of some sort and being added into the game free of charge later on.  Perhaps the most prominent example of this is Final Fantasy XV, which only a few weeks ago, got it’s first patch of additional content.

If you’ve ever picked up a Bioware title you’re fully aware of the studio’s trademark morality systems. Who will you play? The no nonsense enforcer? The snarky savior? The genocidal jerk-face? It’s all up to you, and the consequences of your choices shapes aspects of the digital narrative the game provides. While Inquisition doesn’t disappoint in comparison to the company’s various other titles, even my most diplomatic and kindly of characters is still expected to fight and kill their way through altercations, with almost no alternatives ever given. So naturally I tried my hand at a pacifist run.

In 2014, the hit series Dragon Age by game developer BioWare got its third installment. Dragon Age Inquisition was a massive success, earning over 100 “Game of the Year” awards. It has been a year since its initial release, so why are people still talking about the game as if it were its first day on the market? The answer is simple, really. Dragon Age Inquisition thrives in areas where other games seem to fall short. It provides an immersive storytelling experience that changes depending on just who exactly is playing the game.

    Since this is my first experience with a Dragon Age game, I want to apologize in advance to the hardcore fans if I come off as a complete “noob!” I also want to say that I wish I had joined you sooner because I am in love with Dragon Age: Inquisition.  Being that I was a big fan of Skyrim and Fable II, it has been a while since I have had a fresh game with true exploration and Action-RPG elements. I’m also a big fan of the Mass Effect series so naturally Dragon Age: Inquisition appealed to me and I thought I’d give it a shot.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition

    A new Dragon Age: Inquisition trailer showcasing new and stunning environments has been released. The environments look very beautiful and are quite a big step up from the previous Dragon Age games which weren’t very graphically impressive, even at the time. The game is scheduled to come out this fall for Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Take a look.
