Is Dragon Age: II Really That Bad?

Dragon Age II is infamous for the let down it provided the fanbase after Dragon Age Origins, and it’s quite understandable. Dragon Age Origins was a wonderful, creative game that focused on the player being able to completely create their own story. A vast choice of character, gender, race… The options seemed endless.

Skyrim Remaster and the PS4 Let Down

Despite owning Skyrim already on PC and Xbox 360, I decided to yet again delve into the world, this time on PS4, for personal convenience. I even went to the 12AM launch; why not? It is my favourite game, after all. I was excited, in the build up to release, to hear that mods were…

How Gaming Helped My Depression

If you’ve never experienced depression, it may be hard to comprehend just how soul shattering it is. Your enthusiasm is gone. Your drive is gone. It can be hard to do simple things, such as eat or keep clean, because of the senseless, crushing sadness. It sounds strange, I know, but the drive for self-preservation…

Why Dragon Age Origins is Still Worth It

As an avid Dragon Age fan I always recommend that people who are just stating out with the series to go back and play the others. I’ve heard many complaints as a response, one being about the graphics. Yes, I’ll give you that, Origins is outdated now. However, this also means it can run on…
