Confession:  In the next DA, I want to choose between helping Fenris kill Dorian or killing Fenris to save Dorian. I don’t want a big, happy family. I want your ships to catch fire and sink. I want head cannons to backfire spectacularly. I want hard choices and no middle ground. I want to personally kill the characters I (and fandoms) love with the mirth and fury of a gaming George R. R. Martin.

Confession:  I don’t understand why some people get so angry at the virmire survivor for what they tell Shepard on Horizon. Their suspicions are 100% justified. When your old CO is suddenly alive and working for a terrorist organization (which, depending on your actions in ME1, you actively fought against), how do you react with anything but suspicion? Did people honestly expect an Alliance officer to just drop everything and join Cerberus cuz Shepard says so? Shepard didn’t even want to join Cerberus!

BioWare Devs Show off their Tattoos

A jar of bees. No, really. Blar pls.

At BioWare, we’re big fans of tattoos. It’s common here to catch a splash of color and line work creeping out from under someone’s sleeve. We figured it would be fun to roll up those sleeves and take a look at some of the art that decorates our developers.

See more of the devs here: http://blog.bioware.com/2016/01/27/tattoos-of-bioware/

Confession:  I honestly feel sorry for the elf inquisitor.  Over the course of Inquisition and Trespasser, the elf Inquisitor sacrifices and loses more personally than any other Inquisitor race.

They lose their left arm, their clan (potentially), and by the end of Trespasser their religion. They find out that everything they thought they knew was wrong; that the tattoos they’ve been using as a right-of-passage are actually slave branding, that their gods are not really gods at all and are actually a bunch of dicks, and that Fen'Harel is arguably not that bad of a guy (depending on whether the Inquisitor liked him or not).

That level of personal loss and disillusionment is the kind of thing that could break a person.

hetali-zorah asked:

Is it true Andromeda is going to be delayed till 2017? :( Or is that a rumour going around?

No officially announced “delay” has been said on Mass Effect: Andromeda’s release date. The only official word we’ve heard is from the quarterly shareholder reports.

We are excited to have a new Titanfall experience coming from our friends
at Respawn, and of course Mass Effect: Andromeda from the team at BioWare will launch later in the fiscal year.

In other words, by March 31, 2017. That is not to say that ME:A will not release this year, but that it is projected to ship at least by that date. We’ll likely get a real release date at E3 this year. 

You can read the actual shareholder report [here].

“It might surprise you to know that you’re the one who inspired me. You’re shaping the world… For good or ill. How could I aspire to do any less? If it means proving that Tevinter can be better, that there’s hope even for my homeland? I would do anything.” .

I’ve never used the Dragon Age Keep before how does that work exactly? For example when I start a new game in Inquisition it asks me which world I want and it always says “default” how do I go about changing this? Do I have to upload something somewhere like my save files?

I’ve only played Inquisition and I’m on my first playthrough of Origins. Each time I open both games I get a pop up message that tells me I’m signed into the Dragon Age Keep. I play them on PlayStation 3 and 4.


Would anyone mind helping a confused, wretch like me?

Many thanks :)

Confession:  Out of the three people who can be made Divine, Leliana is the best. She is the one who makes the most and best changes to the Chantry. And I don’t just mean freeing the mages, the fact that she allows other races to become clergy, putting the Canticle of Shartan back into the Chant and if romanced by the Warden she allows the Clergy to marry if they want to.

Confession:  It doesn’t seem like Andromeda will take place too far away from ME3’s ending, it might even take place along side it. Whatever the case may be, I do hope we get an update on our Shepard’s at some point. I had the High EMS Destory ending so mine is still alive, I want to know how him a Kaidan are doing, if they became teachers at Grissom Academy (My Shep is an Adept), or retired, started a family etc. It’s the final bit of closure I need on my Shepard

I love pulp and camp art (and writing!) and Dragon Age is ripe for the treatment.  I tried to include everyone, and I wanted to hit three of the major genres- Detective stories, Adventure stories, and Men’s interest.

As a note- Originally, in the third image, Josie was the damsel in distress, but my husband argued against what he called her “debasement” and campaigned for Dorian to take her place on the grounds of him being a more attractive storytelling target (”it’s also more like Dorian to be bound,” says he).  That argument worked for me, and here we are.
