  1. BioWare Shares All Romances For Dragon Age: Inquisition, Inclusive Of Different Orientations

    But which one will make me cry forever?

    Dragon Age: Inquisition is (finally) coming out on November 18th.

BioWare's Mike Laidlaw has presented all the LI details—read on if you don't mind mild spoilers!

  2. Hundreds of Game Developers Sign an Open Letter to End Hate in the Gaming Community

    Be excellent to each other.

    It hasn't exactly been a great time to be a gamer lately—except for huge, gross gaming trolls, who seem to be having a blast taunting people, making threats, and generally being the worst. But those trolls are now the target of an open letter from the gaming community's creators to its fans, asking them to end intolerance for the good of everyone.

  5. About Damn Time: BioWare/EA Goes Gender Neutral for Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s Box Art

    Here Be Dragons

    The realm of video game box art can be fairly dominated by bestubbled white guys in armor carrying big guns or bigger swords, even in games where the main character's physical appearance is determined entirely by the player from a wide variety of options. Even for titles like BioWare's Mass Effect, famous for having an incredibly popular female version of the main character Shepard, the face on the box is the male version. Lobbying by ME fans did eventually result in the inclusion of (the affectionately dubbed) FemShep in a launch trailer and collectors edition box art, and it seems that BioWare has taken the idea a step further for its newest RPG, Dragon Age: Inquisition. As confirmed by the game's creative director Mike Laidlaw, the figure on the official box cover was intended to be gender neutral, to better represent the diversity of the game's character options. Previously in Dragon Age

  6. There’s a New Dragon Age: Inquisition Trailer and Release Date, We’re Suddenly Having Difficulty Focusing

    Hnnnng. My dialogue wheel is ready.

    I'm sorry, I forgot literally everything else in my life that isn't Dragon Age just now. Internet? What's an Internet? I don't know what that is because I am a citizen of Ferelden who will return to my home world of Thedas to lead the Inquisition on October 7th.

  7. Things We Saw Today: Lots of April Fools’ Day Gags

    As they have become famous for, ThinkGeek.com rolled out a bunch of "new" products today. Unfortunately they're all April Fools' Day jokes. The one we're most upset over? The Klingon Rosetta Stone. Because seriously, I've always wanted to learn Klingon. But also, the Unicorn Drinking Horn (pictured above) should go into production immediately. Only larger. Much larger.

  8. Jennifer Hepler Did Not Quit BioWare Because Of Harassment, Plus Updates On Xbox Support

    The Truth Is Out There

    Yesterday, we started noticing traffic on a story from February 2012 -"Inclusion: What Jennifer Hepler's Story is all About." It was a while later we realized the traffic was as a result of a new story popping up saying the BioWare employee was quitting her job there as a result of the terrible harassment she received, including threats against her children. But here's the thing, according to Jennifer Hepler herself - that's not why she quit. This story just happened to bookend a week when we posted about another instance of video game related harassment so we're going to fill you in on the latest for both.

  9. All of Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II’s Promotional Items Now Free

    One of the worst parts of the current gaming landscape is the plethora of options given when placing a pre-order. It's increasingly become standard operating procedure to provide different doodads to each and every retailer in order to try and convince consumers to buy from them. This kind of thinking saw Dragon Age: Origins filled to the brim with these kind of promotional items, and even Dragon Age II had content only available through pre-order. Now, nearly two years after the release of the last game, BioWare has made it possible to unlock all of these items and more.

  10. BioWare Offers Free Copy of Mass Effect Trilogy to Black Ops 2 Players With Faulty Disc

    As we reported yesterday, a few of those wanting to get in on some Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 PC action were surprised to find that their second disc was reading as a copy of Mass Effect 2. Players could still enter their serial key into Steam in order to download it, but the disc itself is pretty much useless. Not only does it mean the game can't be installed, but there's no serial key included for Mass Effect 2. Not to let this wonderful PR opportunity go to waste, BioWare has since offered a free PC copy of Mass Effect Trilogy to those affected.
