  3. Pixelthreads: Dragon Age: Inquisition and the Politics of Dress

    Ew, those beige pajamas.

    As much as it's a game about ancient evils and holes in the sky and saving the world, Dragon Age: Inquisition is about politics - and in the game of politics, what you wear and when is as important as with whom you choose to ally yourself.

    After the chaos in Redcliffe, Emone returns to the war table briefly to check in on everyone. This is the first time Blackwall has been this close to the breach and he's astonished by the size of it. He comments that it's difficult to avoid the breach when you're this close to it and he can't believe Emone walked out of it alive. I tell him he could get closer to it if he wanted. We could go see it together right now, but Blackwall doesn't want to. Chicken shit, is he?

  10. Bad Gamer Part 4: What Happens If You Play Through Dragon Age: Inquisition Like A Total Jerk?

    Naturally, we begin again in Haven. Josie's worried that some people in the Haven might have been treating me unkindly for being an elf. I'm not sure why this is suddenly an issue for her. Did they not know I was an elf when I was first strong-armed into the Inquisition?

  11. Bad Gamer Part 3: What Happens If You Play Through Dragon Age: Inquisition Like A Total Jerk?

    Before I duck back out into the Hinterlands, I do my rounds in Haven. I visit the tavern and end up meeting Flissa for the first time. I correct her on being Dalish and not being an Alienage, and dear lord this woman is so awkward about the way I look, even if I'm edge a little. “Things on my face?” Urgh, please shut up, Flissa.

  12. Dragon Age: The Musical Is Everything A Templar Fangirl Could Possibly Need

    My heart.

    If there's one thing I've learned playing Dragon Age, it's that ladies can't resist the allure of a tortured-yet-charmingly-sarcastic blond Templars. Here, we see Alistair and Cullen having a musical face-off (Into the Woods-style) about who is more charmingly tortured. As one YouTube commenter points out, a Lyrium-addicted Cullen telling Alistair that he "knows nothing of madness" makes a heck of a lot of sense. Plus, shirtlessness.

  14. Games, Comics, and Genre TV Earn GLAAD Award Nominations

    The nominees for the 26th annual GLAAD Media Awards were announced today, which recognize works that have "fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives." Because genre media can often be forward-thinking and groundbreaking in representation, it should come as no surprise that the things we love here on TMS are well-represented among the nominees.

  15. Very First Animation Tests Of Mass Effect Were Of FemShep, Says Lead Animator

    HELL yeah!

    One of the best things about many Bioware games is that you can select the gender of the character you play. Despite that, the marketing for Mass Effect tended to focus almost exclusively on the male avatars for a super long time, until criticism of this practice finally led to a trailer for FemShep in 2011. Which is odd, because if Lead ME cinematic animator Jonathan Cooper is to be believed, FemShep technically came first.
