Happy Inquisition Day! That’s right people the day we’ve (well mostly me) been waiting for is finally here! Right now I’m playing the crap out of this game; I’m not sure if I’ll do a Let’s Play of DA:I or not but I’ll be playing this game throughout the rest of the year (only to stop to eat, sleep, work, and play smash). Now I know yesterday I said I was tired talking about this game and not playing it; however now that I am playing it’s only prudent to show videos that help players (like myself) get started on the good foot. And with that here’s tips on Dragon Age Inquisition straight from the horse’s mouth.
A World Asunder
Well people I hope you enjoyed your six hours of alone time with Dragon Age Inquisition, I know I did! The sad thing is it when too quickly; good thing we only got one more day to wait! So here are the most recent videos about DA Inquisition to get yourself mentally prepared. One video gives an abridged back story of the events leading to Inquisition, another one is the final Q & A from the creators, and the last videos are a series that show’s the game multiplayer in action. Trust me people, there are more DA:I content available than the stuff I’ve highlighted. You can watch them at your leisure here & here; but in all honestly I tire of reading, watching, and hearing about it – it is time to start playing the dream. And we can do so in one. more. day.
Dragon Age Keep Q&A
Dragon Age: Inquisition Multiplayer
Now that you got the tour of the keep it’s time to see how the Inquisition earns its power. Sure you’re doing the important work of saving the world, but without the Inquisition you’re just another wandering hero and that won’t cut it. In order to empower the Inquisition all of Thedas must learn to either respect or fear them, and that’s where the War Table & the Commanders come in. Through the War Table you spread your influence and the commanders see your orders are done – in their own way. Watch the videos to learn more.
Not to much longer now people it’s almost here. You know, when running your own organization dedicated to solve why the sky ripped open and started to puke out demons, you need a place to hang your hat. That’s where Skyhold comes in; it will be the nerve center of the Inquisition, your impregnable fortress, a hang out for your crew, and most importantly something you can customize to your harts content. After all if you’re going to save the world, your pad’s got to look good, otherwise no one’s going to take your clandestine group seriously.
That’s right people, you read right, you can play Dragon Age Inquisition early before anyone else. See EA access, available on Xbox One only, is an $5 a month service that allows players to play some EA games on demand like Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, Need for Speed Rivals, and Battlefield 4. However they also allow subscribers to demo upcoming games, five days early, for six hours; and guess which upcoming game is also under the EA umbrella and is awesome and gets awesomer every day? You know which game. Now people I know some of you are griping about paying for the service to get early hands on play. But you what, it’s only five dollars… You can lose more money ordering from McDonalds, not even including taxes; all you have to do is buy it for the demo and cancel after the game’s release (which is what I’m going to do – unless you like the service then keep it). Stop choking the wallet and invest in happiness, you’ll thank me later.
Update 11/10/14: The Last Court is up now, go play
Oh man, as if on cue, the flood of Dragon Age goodies have hit the net – in force. Maybe BioWare heard of my hyping of the game before launch or maybe Santa thought I was an extra special good this year and gave me some presents early, whatever I’m just glad they’re making my job easier. Dragon Age: The Last Court is part & parcel of Dragon Age Keep, but focuses on the months before the Inquisition starts. It’s a text adventure story where you, either a male Scholar or a female hunter, are a new ruler of Serault; a down on its luck place needing a good leader to turn it around. In perfect Dragon Age fashion can make choices that could put Serault back on the Orlesian map – or mark its doom. I could explain more about The Last Court (heck there are already spoiler videos for it already), but it’s not released to the general public yet so changes could happen, unlikely, but still. However with Inquisition so close to release date I don’t believe we have to wait long before a finalized Last Court to appear. Stay tuned.
A lot of players spend a great deal of time getting the look of their avatar just right, me included, seriously I won’t even start a game until my game character looks like me to the best of the software’s ability (the games I always play seem to have the worst difficulty getting high yellow black dude skin quite right – work on that developers). Anyway DA character creation for Inquisition looks extremely extensive and will be open to all genders and races so you can go crazy. Don’t worry it’s not all dress up with cyber dolls, there some gameplay too. Enjoy!
