  1. 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.

  6. The Next Angry Bird Game Will Be an RPG, We Have Mixed Feelings

    Guess you can call us "frustrated but optimistic birds."

    I'll admit that I'm not the hugest fan of Angry Birds: I just don't see the appeal, particularly with regard to the tie-in products for consumers (seriously, imagine if Flappy Bird was producing kids' lunch boxes -- it'd be ridiculous).

  7. You Can Play An Actual 8-Bit Game of Thrones RPG

    The whole tutorial is just "stick 'em with the pointy end."

    It definitely influenced Mountain Dew sales, that's for sure.

    Whether or not you've ever rolled a character sheet or not -- that's what you do in D&D, right? Up 'till now I've been in the "not" category, but I'm playing my first game on Monday so I need to bone up -- you can't deny that the classic tabletop RPG Dungeons and Dragons has had a profound influence on geek and gamer culture. At least, PBS Off Book certainly thinks so, and their latest video is all about the community surrounding this much beloved game. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have 48 hours to learn what a "grapple check" is.

  10. Torment: Tides of Numenera Kickstarter Launches, Gets Funded Immediately

    Rumors of some new incarnation of Planescape: Torment begat rumors of a sequel, then of some new incarnation once again. While the locked-up intellectual property -- that is, the Planescape setting owned by Wizards of the Coast -- used in the 1999 Black Isle Studios game of Torment prevented a true sequel, we've now got the next best thing, or maybe something better. The chatter and hype have finally given way to actuality: The Kickstarter for Torment: Tides of Numenera launched today and was fully funded in six hours. Developer inXile Entertainment is at the helm, and they've got a promising team waiting at the starting line.
