Hey folks, Fenrir here with some exciting news! So hold on to your ugly mage hats because there’s been a lot of buzz about Dragon Age: Inquisition, the third installment in Bioware’s ever-popular Dragon Age series! Originally scheduled to release this fall, the team at Bioware is instead pushing the release for next year–and with the latest info released at PAX this weekend, there’s plenty of good reason to wait another year.

"That is mahogany!"

“That is mahogany!”

From playable Qunari characters (SAY WHAT), dodge-rolling action, impressive graphics, an expansive overworld–oh and plenty of ugly hats for everyone–Inquisition is growing into a pretty ambitious project. So let’s get down to business and try to summarize all the cool, new buzz in store for fans of all things Thedas.

What does it mean for the future of the Jean Grey School? I’ll tell you, as we discuss Wolverine and the X-Men #35!

The long awaited film from super-team Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg has finally hit American theaters. From the minds that created Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, this final film completes their loosely-tied together trilogy with a film about a town filled with robots made of blue gunk, and five friends on a mission to get plastered. Does the final film of the Cornetto trilogy satisfy like a delicious fresh cone on a hot summer day, or is it more of a frost-bitten monstrosity hidden in the depths of the freezer for too long?

Let’s take a look at The World’s End.

If there’s one thing that life often sorely lacks, it’s raw, unrefined energy. The kind of energy that puts every motion, every moment into a succinct beat and rhythm. Living in such a world would prove to be exhausting to some, but in its wild and irregular landscape the brave of us would find our fates loosened and freed by the realization that we could become whatever we wish.

I’m a generally negative person, but there are always a few stories out there that really move me. This story was one for sure.

After browsing Facebook earlier today, I saw post in my news feed by IGN that caught my eye. An IGN blogger by the name of zenspath shared a touching story about his almost blind daughter Jennifer and her difficulty in trying to play video games. However, it turned out the Wii U GamePad and Super Luigi U were the perfect combination to enable his daughter to have her first video game experience. Continue reading »

Steam Greenlight has been a great way for small developers to promote their games and have them featured on Steam. Although this is a great service, the rate of games that are eventually greenlit is small. Valve has acknowledged this, and in an unprecedented move yesterday, they greenlit 100 games. 100. Let that sink in a bit. Continue reading »
