While I was sleeping, Bioware revealed some new Dragon Age: Inquisition details. Basically, it's just a video that's similar to a Create-A-Sim demo, but this time it's Create An Inquisitor. Still, I might spend a bit more time that I'll admit customizing my Qunari's horns.

Even die hard Bioware fans will confess that the AI in their games hasn't always been stellar. Enemies would often cause their own deaths and companions weren't always the most capable without micromanagement. The new Dragon Age game promises to change all of that.

I don't care if you guys want to call it hype or whatever, I'm genuinely excited for Dragon Age: Inquisition. In fact, I'm so excited for it, that I'm refusing to review it.

Ah, according to Bioware, the simpler days are gone. Romance is much more complicated in Dragon Age: Inquisition - you can't just insert presents until sex comes out. As a result, Bioware has provided a guide to romance for those who want to get their paramour on.

In many ways, Bioware is one of the last studios that I love and rely upon. They have made such awesome games and franchises that people adore. But lately they've been making some announcements that aren't making their fans particularly happy.

Bioware games have had all kinds of weird and wonderful romance options - the sex scenes certainly looked odd, but it was all about getting that paramour achievement. In the new Dragon Age, they took a more organic approach to romance that sounds really impressive.

I'm not sure how it was when viewing from home, but Bioware's reveal for Shadow Realms sounded atrocious at the EA press conference. It sounded like anything but the sort of game we were hoping for. But then I went behind closed doors and found out that it's actually pretty awesome.

Hidden away in the EA behind closed door session was Bioware's Dragon Age: Inquisition. I managed to grab 30 precious minutes with the game and controller in my hands, and it was everything I'd hoped that it would be.
