Dragon Age: Inquisition - Full Review

Dragon Age: Inquisition — ZAM's Complete Review

I'm sure most of us have a favorite genre or series that we currently or at one point devoted hundreds of hours of our life to. It takes a special game to grab our attention and keep us entertained for hours, and with the number of games that are released every month, there's a lot tugging our attentions every which-way.

As I mentioned in my impressions article of Dragon Age: Inquisition, the game showed a lot of promise from an early first look. Since then I've devoted a lot of time into the story, and still have some more to go, but Inquisition definitely has that "wow" factor. The world of Thedas has captivated me with its deep story, cast of characters and expansive world.

If you're looking for a tl;dr, then here it is: you should be playing Dragon Age: Inquisition the moment it releases on Tuesday, November 18th (November 21st in the EU). Now let's get into what gives this RPG the legs to stand above many others.

Dragon Age: Inquisition - First Impressions

First Impressions: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Inquisition, the biggest RPG to-date that BioWare has built, releases next Tuesday. I stepped into the world of Thedas this week to take my first look at what Inquisition has to offer, and so far have not been disappointed.

Dragon Age Keep
The Dragon Age Keep is a companion website to help track your story you've created in the Dragon Age series. By using important decisions from Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II, the Keep re-creates your world history and presents it to you.

If you're like me and this is your first Dragon Age game, the Keep still is relevant. A default story will play for you, and at crucial moments you can choose different outcomes to events. After the story completes you will be presented with tiles of events -- your Tapestry -- from the games and can choose to either lock those choices, keep them as-is and unlocked, or select a different scenario.

The Dragon Age Keep is available to everyone now, and Inquisition will be added to it for launch day.

Battlefield Hardline to Launch in Q1 2015

Battlefield Hardline marks the latest entry in the series and is now slated for a March 17, 2015 release (March 20, 2015 in the UK). In Hardline you can play out the single player story then hop into multiplayer and either take on the guise of a criminal or a cop. The game will be available on the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Dragon Age: Inquisition - The Hero of Thedas

This morning saw the release of a new Dragon Age: Inquisition cinematic trailer, titled "The Hero of Thedas".

Battlefield 4 Fall Update is Live!

Battlefield 4 has released its "Fall Update," and it's a biggie! Fredrik Loving, General Manager of DICE LA, gave the highlights on the Battlefield Official Blog.

Included in this update are player-requested core game improvements like improved gun recoil visuals, sight reticles being unaffected by "visual recoil," and improvements to player movement. The in-game UI has been made more intuitive and has more customization options. And don't miss the new preset called "Classic Mode," designed for skilled players looking for more of a challenge and stricter rules.

You can read the entire patch notes over here on Battlelog, or catch Mr. Loving's highlights on the Battlefield Official Blog.
