  • Blog Post: Opinion – Dragon Age: Inquisition Has The Best Cast In The Series To Date

    Dragon Age: Inquisition has my favorite cast by far.

  • Blog Post: Breaking Down The Dragon Age: Inquisition Romance Options

    The weight of the world may be on your shoulders, but that doesn't mean you won't find love along the way.

  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Dragon Age: Inquisition, Part 2

    BioWare clearly listened to feedback regarding what players liked and didn't like in previous entries in the Dragon Age series.

  • Blog Post: Dragon Age Keep: Your Guide To The Obscure Choices

    If you played Dragon Age: Origins or Dragon Age II, you probably remember your major decisions.

  • Blog Post: Analysis – Game Resolution Matters As The Intersection Of Art, Science, And Business

    As I typically do at too-regular intervals, I looked back over the stories I’d written in the week prior to see what readers were most interested in. While I wasn’t entirely surprised, two stories caught my eye, both about the same, relatively inconsequential topic. The issue of resolution... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – The Lord Of The Rings: The Third Age

    The recent release of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has put us in a Tolkien kind of mood. Since Reiner won't let us play a new release and slap on the Replay name (we tried!), we dug into the vault and pulled out the 2004 RPG The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age. Join our fellowship as we fight... More

  • Blog Post: The 1000-Year-Old Gamer: A Look At Video Game Age Gates

    Age gates are the Internet's half-hearted attempt at preventing minors from seeing potentially objectionable material. Like most of you, my birthday is on January 1st, but I have found a good deal of variety in just how far back various game companies' website go in available birth year. Asking... More
  • Blog Post: Exploring Freedom In Mass Effect

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly seven years since the the first Mass Effect game was released on Xbox 360 (remember it was a Microsoft-published exclusive). The multitude of choices and wide-open sense of exploration still feel fresh in my mind after all this time and make Mass... More

    The competitive free-to-play online multiplayer environment plays host to a number of huge titles, from League of Legends and Dota 2 to World of Tanks.
