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...

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

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 rampant as to what exactly it might entail.

After a recent visit to BioWare's offices I had a chance to sit down with the multiplayer extensively, and I found myself slowly becoming addicted as the afternoon went on. In fact, I liked it far more than Mass Effect 3's co-op mode -- so I have high hopes for Inquisition.

Video tips on how to be a better Dota 2 player photo
Video tips on how to be a better Dota 2 player
by Patrick Hancock

Believe it or not, in all my time spent in Dota 2, I've never played a single solo matchmaking game. I've played plenty of team games, but the anxiety that comes with playing alone with strangers gets to me while playing Dota 2. Well, there's a first time for everything!

Now, the Dota 2 community, along with many others, gets a lot of flak for being "toxic," and sometimes rightfully so. However! In my new "benchwarMMR" video series there will be no anger or blame towards my fellow teammates. My goal is to learn as much as possible from these matches and let everybody in on the lessons I take away.

So join me on an educational journey through the world of competitive Dota 2. And please leave any feedback you have! 

PS - MMR stands for Matchmaking Rating. In other words, a number given to a player to "rank" how good they are relative to other players.

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: No Going Back photo
Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: No Going Back
by Chris Carter

I really enjoyed watching Clementine's tale unfold over the course of The Walking Dead Season 2. It managed to establish a different tone than the first season, which makes them rather hard to compare bit by bit.

But in terms of delivering a suspenseful, emotional finale, I think Lee's final outing takes the cake. Season 2's No Going Back is the last time we'll see Clementine for a while, but for the most part the episode deals with many of the same themes we've seen in her adventures so far.

Not that it's a bad thing, mind you -- just don't go in expecting it to blow your mind.
