    Dragon Age: Inquisition Review - Monumental

    One character control at the time? Boring.... No healing magic? Boring.... No asymmetrical dual wielding? Boring.... Dialogue wheel instead of full set of choices? Boring.... So the story may be good.....the characterization may be good.... but i might as well read a book in stead :( This...

    No Right Answer: Subbing Vs. Dubbing

    Trust me guys, as a guy that leaved in Europe all of his life and as a guy that has seen both (with the dub being the special fad in the last few years in my country specifically), there is no such thing as a good dub. No such thing at all. There is no substitute for the actor's expression of...

    Jimquisition: It's Not A Video Game!

    I have to agree with John Bain and some other posts here. Without a proper definition words do lose meaning (even though they may get a new one in the process - i am looking at you decimation). And just like them, i don't think i am restricting the media by sticking to a definition, but rather...

    Escape to the Movies: Edge of Tomorrow - Tom Cruise Is Cool Again

    Amen to that. I am sometimes downright puzzled but the (in)ability of critics to judge a work of art (movie/music you name it) based solely on its merits and not on the morality of it authors/creators. In Tom's case it's scientology apparently, but truly, it doesn't matter what it is. When...

    No Right Answer: Is the Internet a Bad Thing?

    KUDOS for the topic, from all the episodes i watched so far, this one is the most deserving of the title "No Right Answer". It can and has been applied to all human advances. Fire, currency, industrialization, nuclear power..... and is in all those things, the answer really depends on how you...

    Jimquisition: The Creepy Cull of Female Protagonists

    The Longest Journey and Dreamfall do indeed have some of the best female characterization in a game that i have ever experienced and presented in such a non-intrusive way that i never felt threatened in any manner by the lead protagonists. 2 out 3 playable characters are women in the 2nd game...

    Jimquisition: SimShitty

    if the mainstream gaming industry is doomed to fall, then let it, what comes next is bound to be better anyway, if at least for a decade or so until they get cocky again :P

    Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer, Ending DLC Details Leak

    Sorry to break it up for you, as far as the ending goes, you could have just started a new game in ME3, everything you did in 1 and 2 has no significance at all

    Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer, Ending DLC Details Leak

    I practically gave up on them. No big deal really. There are other good games out there. I just finished the SP of European Escalation and i am thinking of either replaying Skyrim or starting up Assassin's Creed :) Maybe even giving Torment another go :D Time. I'm no longer in high school...

    Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer, Ending DLC Details Leak

    It Makes it hard to replay 1 and 2 with any meaning (from a RPG perspective). I'm not saying replaying them is impossible, but it only makes sense from a game-mechanic point of view, i.e. shooting people. Aside from that, the character making and the choice making are totaled. That being...

    Poll: Are you finished with Bioware now?

    I may sound like a hypocrite for having this avatar....but....if things remain as they are....BioWare is dead to me. I could overlook DA2 (at least the demo was honest enough to not make me buy the game), but after ME3....i am so....let's just say i am not touching ME1,2 or 3 with a rusty...

    So, how do you think we are going to beat the reapers at the end of mass effect 3?

    Hmm i agree! The rachni and the counsil survival/deaths should make a major impact for starters. As well as the results from the collector's base demise/survival. These are just of the top of my mind, and seam to have the most global effects on possible aid/hindrance for the war effort and the...

    So, how do you think we are going to beat the reapers at the end of mass effect 3?

    Well in my perfect world, this should be done (or being able to be done)in several different ways, one/or several of which would result in Shepard ending dead and at least one in which the Reapers would win. Can we expect such a multiple ending game in 2012? Probably not, but if they do make...
