Dragon Age: Inquisition… Now That I’m Actually In The Game

After my last review, I should probably do a review of Dragon Age: Inquisition based on the game itself. Last time I was mostly ranting about Dragon Age Keep…

Having gotten past that, I’m enjoying the game far more. I’ve only really hit on one moment where my past games have even mattered – which is both good and bad. I can leave that alone for now.

So I have created two characters, so I’ll tell you some of my experiences of creating both a melee and a ranged character. I’ll also look at the party and classes, the things to do, and close out with some technical considerations. I’m only a handful of hours into the game, so if you’re looking for a fuller review of the game, I liked this one from IGN. They do a good job talking about the game without spoilers. I doubt I have many spoilers either, I’m too early on!

First Impression – Dragon Age: Inquisition… but mostly Dragon Age Keep

Hi all! (Will get to Dragon Age in just a couple paragraphs…) Good to be back from vacation. We had a fun time, but it was a long time and it’s good to be home. We tried to keep up on comments over time, so hopefully we didn’t miss any – let me know in the comments below if you’re looking to hear from us about something!

Also a thank you to our guest posts last week – two from Comparative Geeks guest-bloggers AC Powers, about ethics in medicine research, and about gaming immersion. Then a guest post from a new guest here, Hannah Givens from the excellent blog Things Matter. She wrote about Ms. Marvel, which I read the first volume of while traveling – great stuff, and great post!

Dragon Age InquisitionThe thing I was most excited about with coming home was Dragon Age: Inquisition. We had preordered it, it arrived, and was waiting for us. Lo! Game was there. I was hoping for my Sunday to be pop, bam, let’s do some playing! I didn’t care if it was Holly or me playing, just to see this game we have been waiting for since the moment we first finished Dragon Age 2. But… there’s not a save game import as anticipated by me in previous posts. So we were stuck going to the Dragon Age Keep online to get our world set up like we wanted it! So let me regale you with our stories of distress, and talk through what I like about it.

What are You Excited for in Dragon Age: Inquisition?

Dragon Age: Inquisition comes out next week, and we’re super excited. Special edition preordered and on the way soon! We’ve been ready for this game since pretty much exactly the moment Dragon Age 2 ended, as it sets up a teaser/cliffhanger/hook so well that it made Inquisition look like a better and more interesting game than what we had just played!

So maybe some of the poll answers are a bit of a joke, but there’s some serious too… But definitely feel free to chime in in the comments as well!

What’s Your Favorite BioWare Game?

After talking about Dragon Age and Mass Effect lately, it has us thinking about how much fun the BioWare games are in general. And so, we give you this poll.

I don’t have a clue how I’ll even vote…

Looking Forward to Dragon Age: Inquisition

I’ve been playing more Dragon Age 2, with the plan of finally beating it before the next game comes out! With thinking about that, I am realizing we haven’t really commented on what’s going on with Dragon Age really since we talked about Dragon Age Keep. We’ve been looking forward to this since the early days of the blog!

We had fears about this game – mainly about what consoles it would be on. And then fears, based on our experience of the Bioware games in recent years. But despite all of that, I am hopeful for the game! Not much else to say as an introduction, so… have this trailer!
