The Sims 4 seemed to be missing some key features when it launched, leading many (including me) to worry that the game would add those in later, at an added fee. But that isn't the case - free content has been added and the game now has pools and other fun ways to kill your Sim. Now you can have even more fun with your bizarre creations.

Influence is something carefully cultivated - do great deeds and they might be noticed, a bit. Influence unlocks Inquisition Perks in Dragon Age: Inquisition, and it can be rather difficult to max out. However, this system gives you unlimited influence at no cost. Warning: contains light spoilers.

SimCity 2000 was released way way back in February of ‘95 and instantly became a cult classic. It’s now 19 years later (feeling old yet?) and the game is still probably the best city builder ever released.

Dragon: Age Inquisition is a pretty good game, if you’re not the sort who prefers RPG’s featuring spiky pink-haired androgynous lead characters. Unfortunately, there are still a couple of issues that are preventing it from being a wholly incredible experience. It’s getting a patch today – but it unfortunately doesn’t fix the issue that’s making the game a little soulless for me right now.

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.

No, these aren't bloody agents like we've heard about on the news - agents are NPCs that you can recruit into the Inquisition, increasing its power and helping a specific leader from your War Table. They can help reduce the time for advisors to complete their missions, and are generally just awesome. As with all guides, contains spoilers.

EA has a rather nasty habit of buying studios and running them into the ground. A fairly recent example of this would be Burnout developers Criterion, who quickly fizzled out after being put on Need for Speed duty. EA regularly buys talent instead of nurturing it from within - but that's going to change.

There has been a ton of talk about inclusion in games. We need to have people of more walks of life represented in games to draw in a more inclusive audience - it doesn't alienate those who are part of the majority, but it makes people in the minorities feel included. Bioware has always been ahead of the curve on this, and Dragon Age: Inquisition takes it to a new level. Warning: contains possible spoilers.

I'm really loving Dragon Age, but it's massive! So, here's another guide to help you make sense of everything. A big part of the Dragon Age: Inquisition experience is the war table. It opens up new areas, unlocks all kinds of extras and gives you access to your Inquisition Perks. But it can get a bit daunting. Here are all the perks in one place to help you make decisions.

I am thoroughly enjoying Dragon Age: Inquisition - I intend to vacation for all of December in Thedas. However, the inventory can get a bit daunting. With only 60 slots and better loot drops than Destiny, you might find yourself trying to maximize space without losing out on rewards. Here are some tips and insights.

EA has been doing all kinds of things to make themselves seem more appealing. From giving away free games to releasing a beloved Bioware title, people are finding fewer reasons to hate EA. Now there is another one.

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.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is blowing my mind with how awesome it is. It's taken a bit of Skyrim in all the best ways and blended it beautifully with all the things I love about Bioware. However, the valuables and loot system is a bit messed up, and you might end up weaker than you should be if you're not careful.

A year since the new generation console have launched and it seems that the first battle was won by Sony. The PS4 has been selling fast and furious, but EA's Chief Financial Officer says that things are shifting in the market.
