  • Released on Mar 16, 2010

[edit] Background

For centuries, the Grey Wardens—the ancient order of guardians, sworn to unite and defend the lands—have been battling the darkspawn forces. Legend spoke that slaying the Archdemon would have put an end to the darkspawn threat for centuries to come, but somehow they remain.

You are the Grey Warden Commander and have been entrusted with the duty of rebuilding the order of Grey Wardens and uncovering the secrets of the darkspawn and how they managed to remain.

How you choose to rebuild your order, how you resolve the conflict with "The Architect", and how you determine the fate of the darkspawn will be but some of the many complex choices that await and shape your journey as you venture to the new land of Amaranthine.

It may only be a small addition to the story, but it is one well crafted bonus. And also a bit easier than the first part. DragonAgeOriginsAwakening

Oh ho, what's this? A photo of an advert. You know those little cards you find in your video game cases now? The Dragon Age: Origins expansion Awakening came with one as well, with just the game's blood dragon and a date:


Could it be the sequel-prequel-we-don't-know-what? Dun, dun dun...

You want more random gaming goodness? Yes you do. Too tired to sound excited or anything like that, so you guys just get links. Yes, links. Links you can click to go somewhere else.

Probably the most anticipated review/game is God of War III for PS3, though XBLA's Scrap Metal is also up there. The first, you already know, and the second is a lovely little vehicular combat game by Slick, the people who made N+. Also note that our Blur multiplayer beta key giveaway is actually still active, even though the beta has already begun as of Monday. You can still get remaining keys here by just entering your email.

Ace Attorney Investigation: Miles Edgeworth! Longest title ever! Especially for the series.

Anyway, the review went up earlier this week, obviously late since the game actually game out February 16. Thing is, Capcom didn't send it to us until after it was released, so it appeared at my doorstep three days late. On top of that, we had all those delightful Atlus previews goin' on.

Enough bitchin', here's the review. Personally? It's now my favorite Ace Attorney game, next to the first Phoenix Wright. Read, leave feedback, rawr.

If you're interested in another DS game review, Gabe played through Ragnarok DS and gave his verdict. Uhm, it's... less positive than what I gave Investigations, let's say.

And on the console/PC side of things, we have an awesome Dragon Age: Origins - Awakenings interview, which went up just this evening. Sean did most of the work, followed up by Adrian bugging the crap outta BioWare about it. :)

And finally, you can expect our review of W!Games' Greed Corp to hit the front page some time tomorrow. It's incredibly cute, especially for an TBS-kill-your-enemies game.
