Dragon Age: Inquisition character creation

Bioware has put out a new video showing off the character creation tool for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Check it out below.

The character customization looks to be pretty extensive. Bringing the races back from Dragon Age: Origins is looking to be a good idea, offering more unique playthroughs. And it will be nice to play as a Qunari. Dragon Age: Inquisition releases on November 18 for the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Confessions of a Journey With the Dying and the Dead

At first, all I was going to do was tell of my time playing Dark Souls 2 but then, out of nowhere, I went to play the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. There’ll be more on that later, but first: my time with Dark Souls 2. First of all, let me say that I am easily persuaded by others to jump on the hype train. Sometimes this is worth following, sometimes not. But in this case, I found the journey to be worth the time, so off I went to Drangleic, the world of Dark Souls 2, despite the fact that some hardcore players of the Souls series say that Dark Souls 2 is the easiest among the trio. Without having played either 2452864-thepursuerDemon’s Souls or Dark Souls, I am in no position to say otherwise. The main reasons I am attracted to such games is the lore and how the story is told...

Titan cancellation cost Blizzard $50m or more, say analysts

It’s a painful blow but it’s better than publishing a mediocre game that fails to attract an audience.

When Titan first came to light in 2007, most people assumed it would be Blizzard’s next big thing, ultimately taking the place of World of Warcraft which was likely to see further declines in the years ahead. Fast forward seven years, WoW clearly has been fading (down to 6.8 million subs as of June 30) but Blizzard has no MMO lined up to replace it, and that fact was really hammered home today with the surprise cancellation of Titan. In fact, the developer stressed that it didn’t want to be known as an MMO company and one may not be in its future. Cancelling the project this late in the game may have cost Blizzard several tens of millions of dollars, analysts told GamesI...
