We now know the title of the next Dragon Age game, and it is…

Dreadwolf! If you’ve been following the development of what has been thrown around as “Dragon Age 4” and caught wind of #TheDreadWolfRises on social media a few years back, then this probably isn’t the biggest shock. But, at least that which has been suspected is now officially true according to BioWare. Fans of the series…

About that Knights of the Old Republic Remake…

While I do think that game makers have been overdrawing from the remake/remaster well over the last few years, I like to think that they’re mostly harmless. When done right, remasters and remakes provide new opportunities for both old and new fans to enjoy older games again. However, not every remake/remaster is done well, and…

New Thoughts on Old DLC in Mass Effect Legendary Edition (Part 1 of 2)

I recently completed what will surely be the first of many playthoughs of Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and let me just say, I am impressed. Granted, while its upgrades are notable (mostly within the first game), this remaster isn’t far flung from the original Mass Effect trilogy. Players still get to navigate their own Commander…

Mass Effect – What’s Next? Who Knows!

The past several months have been all about Mass Effect for me. Earlier in the year, I took a second trip through Mass Effect: Andromeda, and had a good time doing so. I then dove back headlong into the world of Commander Shepard and her merry band of galaxy-saving misfits via the games Legendary Edition…

Mass Effect: Andromeda – Worth a Second Trip?

Truth be told, I really hadn’t thought much about Mass Effect: Andromeda since I first completed it back in 2017. Between then and now, I ran though the original trilogy a couple times, because of course I did, but replaying MEA never really struck as a “thing to do.” It wasn’t until the late 2020…

Cheeky Charlatans: Sera

In Dragon Age: Inquisition’s DLC, Trespasser, provided she and your inquisitor are friends, there is a scene that defines the elven rogue Sera more than any other. Upon the two meeting on the eve of the Exalted Council – something of a United Nations, but much smaller and more religious — Sera invites the inquisitor…

Happy Tenth Birthday Dragon Age II, and, I’m Sorry

This week marks the tenth anniversary of the release of Dragon Age II, one of my favorite and most-played games of the past couple years. Had you told me in 2011 that this game would become something special in my life, I can only imagine that I would have laughed, hard. For you see, after…

[REVISITED] 77 Hours Later, and Mass Effect: Andromeda is in the Bag

One of my gaming goals for 2021 is to replay Mass Effect: Andromeda. Can’t say it’s a lofty goal, but with the Mass Effect Legendary Edition due out later this year, rather than tread through the original trilogy for the umpteenth time, I figured I’d cast fresh eyes over Andromeda‘s post-Commander Shepard universe instead.  It’s…

Is it Finally Time to Go Back?

Recently, BioWare (or rather the EA studio calling itself BioWare) announced Mass Effect Legendary Edition. As of spring 2021, fans will be able to enjoy remastered versions of all three games on current-gen consoles. It’s something that many fans have been asking for for a long time, and I’m happy they’ll be able to enjoy…
