Dragon Age

  1. 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 a fitful sleep, I immediately summon the War Council. I need this breach closed now.

  3. Bad Gamer Part 6: What Happens If You Play Through Dragon Age: Inquisition Like A Total Jerk?

    After consulting the council (thanks everyone who voted!), I decided it's best to side with the Templars—or, at the very least, to ask them for their help.

    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?

  5. 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?

  7. PBS Game/Show Tackles the Racist Pitfalls That Can Go Along With NPCs of Color in Video Games

    Yeah, I have always been a little side-eye about the Gerudo.

    Jamin Warren brings up a lot of good points about how the player agency which lies at the heart of most games often results in dehumanized NPCs, which become doubly problematic when PCs are majority white and/if NPCs are predominantly brown. He also tackles the common scifi/fantasy trope of using inter-species conflict as a metaphor for inter-racial conflict, one that I've been mulling over myself for a while now.

  8. 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.

  9. 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. Dragon Age Inquisition‘s Krem Is Maybe The Awesomest Representation Of A Trans Character In A Mainstream Game

    Krem is a mercenary in Iron Bull's group, the Chargers - and he also happens to be trans. That fact isn't even brought up until about halfway through the game, when you sit down to have a conversation with the Chargers - and Iron Bull handles the situation with much aplomb.
