Am I still going to be derided for admitting that I rather liked Dragon Age II's Hawke? The focus on a human character was more in line with the second outing in Thedas' narrower vision, and I found that I wasn't all that fussed about not being able to play a dwarf or an elf. 

That said, more choices are always welcome. Game Informer has discovered that, despite what BioWare initially stated, racial choices are returning in Dragon Age: Inquisition. I confess that I am pretty excited to be able to run around the world as a dwarf in his underwear once more. 

BioWare has made a big deal out of listening to fan feedback, especially after the extensive criticism of Inquisition's predecessor, and adding race choices was down to fans clamouring for such a feature. I certainly don't want the game to be designed by committee, but I'm glad that the studio is open to making changes if the desire from fans is strong enough.

So, what's going to be your race of choice. I'm a dwarf man, myself. It's all about the magnificent beards.

BioWare: 'We will support Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer far beyond Mass Effect 3'

During my time with Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer, I had a chance to chat with the team who was responsible, specifically regarding their plans for the future. A BioWare representative confirmed that they would "suppo...more

I enjoyed Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer a lot more than I thought I would

There have been rumors of a multiplayer component in Dragon Age: Inquisition for quite a while. BioWare has been keeping things under wraps for months after a small hint of its inclusion, and speculation was rampan...more

BioWare states that one complete playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition is 150 hours

Today at EA's gamescom press conference, BioWare's Aaryn Flynn talked a bit about how long Dragon Age: Inquisition would take to complete. The answer? If you did everything in one playthrough, it would take roughly 150 hours. Sounds like a lot, right? Well let me break that statement down based on my experiences with the game at a recent preview event.more

Dragon Age: Inquisition plays like a solid mix of Origins and Dragon Age II

I wasn't very happy with Dragon Age II. Whereas Origins was a glorious return to old-school RPG sensibilities, Dragon Age II played like an action game that took place in the same universe. I liked the sequel for di...more

Dragon Age: Inquisition's tactical camera is better than it was in Origins

I had a lot of problems with Dragon Age II, but one of my chief complaints was the lack of a tactical camera, which really took a lot of strategy out of major encounters. So when I sat down with the team from Dragon Age: ...more

Dragon Age: Inquisition combat makes me want to play Final Fantasy XII

Let's be fair, a lot of seemingly arbitrary things make me want to replay Final Fantasy XII. A lack of time coupled with a naive hope for an HD re-release always keep me from doing so, leaving me in a perpetual state of want...more

Dragon Age: Inquisition pushed to November

Battlefield Hardline, and now Dragon Age: Inquisition -- it's delay day at Electronic Arts. BioWare has moved Inquisition from October 7 to November 18 (Nov. 21 in Europe). Considering how stupidly packed with high-profile re...more

Dragon Age: Inquisition is just as pretty indoors as out

The first part of this walkthrough with creative director Mike Laidlaw managed to get me excited for Inquisition despite not touching previous Dragon Age games. This one, too, looks pretty darn cool, even without bears to freeze. Plus, Dorian's sweet mustache. more

Here are five reasons I'm curious about Dragon Age: Inquisition

I've liked just about everything I've seen from Dragon Age: Inquisition, which is weird, because historically I've basically avoided the series. Here is literally everything I knew about the previous Dragon Age games go...more

This one area in Dragon Age: Inquisition is bigger than all of Origins

So big they've added mounts, from regular old horses to the more exotic.  I never felt the Dragon Age games looked too hot, but BioWare has done a nice job making a more lush world. And then you get attacked by a g...more

Xenoblade Chronicles X has a massive in-game world

The latest issue of Edge states that map in Xenoblade Chronicles X is going to significantly dwarf the world of the original Xenoblade Chronicles. Think five times bigger, in fact. Director Tetsuya Takahashi elaborates in the...more
