Homeworld, Dragon Age, Mighty No. 9, and some sad news photo
Homeworld, Dragon Age, Mighty No. 9, and some sad news
by Max Scoville

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, I hope you're all safe and sound following PAX 2013! I got to drunkenly shout moist pleasantries in the vicinity of a bunch of you, and that was absolutely lovely. For those of you who missed it, you have my deepest sympathies.

Today on the show, we discuss Dragon Age: Inquisition, and how it looks incredible, how Gearbox is turning Hardware: Shipbreakers into Homeworld: Shipbreakers, and has two brand new IPs in the works. The Xbox One supports up to eight controllers, the Xbox Live Marketplace has been renamed, and Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune has absolutely wrecked shop with the Kickstarter for his new game, Mighty No. 9. There's a new Grand Theft Auto V trailer... and then some other announcements.

The exciting news: Niero and company have announced Destructoid HUGE, a premium membership program for the site, which will give members ad-free site access, discounts on merch, automatic contest entry, exclusive content, and more, for a measly $2.99 a month, or $29.99 a year. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and considering how much Destructoid rules for free, just imagine how cool it'll be when there's money rolling in. It's only a matter of time until there's a whole portal full of exlusive Jonathan Holmes sexy muscleman pin-ups.

The sad news: The Destructoid Show is coming to an end. Tara and I will continue to crank out stuff full-time over on Rev3Games, but we're parting ways with our beloved red-eyed robot overlord Mr. Destructoid. 

Destructoid's founder, and the man who got me my start in this kickass industry wrote up his thoughts, which you can read after the break.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is a major improvement

As much as I love Bioware's style of creating compelling companions and giving the player agency to make choices that ultimately affect the overarching narrative, I have never been able to get into the Dragon Age series, no m...

BioWare's Dragon Age save-import tool sounds great

Now that the Dragon Age series has adopted the Frostbite engine and will be releasing on next-generation consoles, the matter of transferring players' save data to Dragon Age: Inquisition is not a simple one. But, for us, it ...

Heroes of Dragon Age is a free-to-play mobile game

Okay, that's a bit too harsh. Someone will find enjoyment in Heroes of Dragon Age, EA Capital Games and BioWare's cross-platform, free-to-play spinoff title for mobile devices. As the name and first screenshots would suggest,...

Dragon Age: Inquisition caters to all races

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 fus...

Dragon Age: Inquisition isn't a continuation of 1 or 2

EA president Frank Gibeau recently talked with IGN about why BioWare dropped the "3" from the title of the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition. Gibeau said that they "just wanted to draw more attention to the fact that Inqu...

Morrigan returns in Dragon Age: Inquisition
by Joshua Derocher

Old characters will be returning in Dragon Age: Inquisition, and among them will be everyone's favorite witch, Morrigan. Electronic Arts showed off the first trailer, called "The Fires Above," during their E3 conference today.

Morrigan wasn't a part of Dragon Age 2, so this is a good sign that they will be returning to the epic story arc from Origins. There was a big dragon too, just like the original Arch Demon. Maybe their will be another blight?

In not so surprising news, Amazon Italy went and outed Dragon Age III: Inquisition as an Xbox One release. The posting has since been removed, but it comes just days after Mirror's Edge 2 was outed, twice. It seems retailers ...

GDC: David Gaider talks about sex and privilege

Games like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and others in the BioWare pantheon have always had some romantic subplots, but more recent games' naughty bits have frustrated some players. BioWare writer David Gaider has gone o...
