If there’s one thing I’ve also thought the Witcher did better than most RPGS, it’s quests. Sure, there’s padding all over the place, but most of the time side-content feels like it has a lot of meaningful weight behind it. It’s not simply "go here, pick that up and return" – something which the Witcher 3’s lead quest designer feels Dragon Age: Inquisition had too much of.
Writing compelling narratives are difficult. Writing ones that twist and turn like the tale in Dragon Age: Inquisition are far more complex than I can even imagine, and I envy the skill of writers that are able to craft such stories. But it's a daunting task - even for the best writers - and Inquisition's prologue suffered the most during development.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is an exquisite game, but it isn't without its problems. I ran into a handful during my review, but lately they've been cropping up more and more. The most annoying one by far is a little audio glitch that strips the game of all its sound effects, and sometimes crashes dialogue entirely. BioWare has yet to fix it, but there are some ways around it.
Despite having only two games in the series, Dragon Age has a surprisingly chequered past. Origins was like a gift from The Maker himself, harking back to the RPG eras of old and delivering an all-round stellar experience. Dragon Age II, although not terrible, failed to live up to the first's exceptional standards - an odd thing to say about a BioWare game. Inquisition is not the same Dragon Age as Origins, but it manages to take the best of both previous games and deliver something truly spellbinding.
I thought I would quickly log in to The Dragon Age Keep to check that reports on the game being live were true. Instead, I lost a whole bunch of time as I created my character and started playing. Now you can do the same, because The Last Court is available, absolutely free.
Whether or not you're changing platforms for Dragon Age: Inquisition, you will need to recreate the world changing decisions that you made in the first two games. Those decisions will be kept in the Dragon Age Keep, which you can now go dive into.
We already knew that the new Dragon Age was going to spice up the romance element. Doing away with the "insert gifts until sex comes out" approach to seduction, Bioware has promised more natural and realistic relationships with all characters in Dragon Age: Inquisition. However, this had led to some strange insights into the developers' ideas of normal sexuality.
Every Bioware companion has a unique personality, but I found the Dragon Age ones to be a bit two dimensional at times. It seems that Dragon Age: Inquisition is making each one much more interesting, and after watching this trailer I might be developing a bit of a crush on Iron Bull.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is almost here; only about a month to go until we get our hands on possibly one of the best experiences ever created by Bioware. But not everyone has played the game that started the franchise, and now you can - at absolutely no cost.
Dragon Age Inquisition is almost upon us. While I'm getting ready by fobbing off as much work as possible on innocent younger members of staff, other people prepare themselves by dressing up as their favourite characters. This crew is truly incredible.
There are a bunch of reasons that I'm excited for Dragon Age: Inquisition. The story-telling from Bioware has always been fantastic, but I'm also keen for all the extra RPG and tactical elements of the game. The war table is one such element, and it is sort of making me giddy to think about.
I'm still quite skeptical about the Dragon Age: Inquisition multiplayer, but I've decided that just because I don't like 4-player co-op in my single player games doesn't mean that other people won't enjoy it. Here's how some of you might be having a ton of fun when the game launches.
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.
EA kicked things off at Gamescom today with a brand new gameplay demo for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Spells, swords and shivers, it’s all looking pretty amazing still.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is almost upon us and Bioware fans are chomping at the bit to learn more. How much of what they learned from Mass Effect will be visible in the new Dragon Age? Well, here is a slightly spoiler-ific list of details on a range of aspects in the game.
