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.

As you’ll recall, Battlefield 4 had a less-than-successful launch, with players complaining of bugs, glitches, server issues and all sorts of other problems that prevented the game from being all it could be.  Before launch though, it was hyped as just about the best military game ever made – and it’s something EA and its executives have been taken to task for, by way of lawsuits. Judges have now dismissed those lawsuits.

In news that will delight the tens of people still playing the game, it looks like Titanfall is getting an update. An update that developer Respawn Entertainment calls its "biggest update ever" as the game descends into the madness of co-op and horde mode.

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.

Yesterday, while we were resting, the good people from Bioware were showing off a live stream of some Dragon Age: Inquisition gameplay. They were running around, giving bits and pieces of information throughout, but all I could pay attention to was just how big the place is.

I enjoy the characters that Bioware creates. They are nuanced and realistic, full of personality, and generally voiced by some excellent talent. Cassandra Pentaghast is no exception, and this new video from Bioware shares a few new details on her character.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is going to be gorgeous - we knew that because of the whole new generation console thing, as well as the fact that Bioware has said it will be best on PC. Now a new trailer shows off just how impressive the game will be, and why we should be interested in the story.

For too long now, PC gamers have been getting the short end of the stick when it comes to PC ports. Games are poorly optimised, lacking the sort of options and features PC gamers expect or are made for controllers, with poor mouse and keyboard support. That won’t be the case with Dragon Age: Inquisition.

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.

We all have trust issues. No, I'm not talking about Gavin's inability to open up to other human beings - I mean that we all worry that games won't live up to promises made by studios and publishers. We all fear that we will feel betrayed after purchasing a game that doesn't deliver. It happened with Battlefield 4, and DICE knows it.

When EA and Bioware first announced Star Wars: The Old Republic, I was rather excited. And then I realised the game was an MMO, at which point I spat on the ground, cursed EA’s name and then went foetal, crying myself to sleep. You see, I loved Knights of the Old Republic – and really, I just wanted more of that. Years on and I have continued to ignore The Old Republic. That could change. Its newest expansion pits you against Revan.

Dragon Age: Inquisition had better live up to my expectations. Everything I've seen and experienced of the game has been wonderful, and this latest nine minute video of gameplay footage looks rather impressive. There are tons of things to do, and I'm excited to try them all.

Okay okay, we know that Dragon Age: Inquisition will have crafting. We get it. However, some new details are making me slightly more inclined to try it, if only because I can name the unique weapons that I craft. Prepare to face me in battle as I wear my KaChing chain mail, accidental aaaaaa ring and dual wield my Dongs of Doom.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is coming in a couple short months and I'm chomping at the bit to play it. It will be great to immerse myself in the world of Thedas again and I'm keen to see what Bioware did to learn from all their previous mistakes. According to a new infographic, they did a lot.

Crafting and customization are becoming the norm in RPGs and open-world sandbox experiences. I'm not totally convinced that every game that gets this functionality needs it, but Dragon Age: Inquisition is desperate to show how in-depth and comprehensive the game is. This new trailer shows off crafting and customization, and will probably make you guys very happy.
