This past winter, I finally finished playing the Dragon Age series for the first time. Something rumbled inside me to write about the experience—the incoherent, stress-inducing, incredible experience—and so I’ve put together a list of how to become addicted to the famous BioWare series, from the first game, through the DLC, to the current hanging-on-to-every-BioWare-announcement-ever moments.

Spoilers for the Dragon Age series for anyone who, like me, waited ten years before starting this franchise. Major, major Inquisition and Trespasser spoilers. (more…)
By day, Sidequest’s Managing Editor Naseem Jamnia used to do sciencey things, but they now slam their keyboard and call it art. By night, they play a lot of video games. And regardless of the time, they spend way too much of it on Twitter, @jamsternazzy.

It was the first time I had seen anything like it, a puzzle game that wasn’t confined to the boundaries of a normal game in any of the ways I expected. (more…)
Dungeons 3. Clearly the third installment of Dungeons, a game series developed by Realmforge Studios and published by Kalypso Media. I found Dungeons 3 in my Origin Access library (yes, I paid EA for Origin Access, please don’t judge me) and it seemed like something I might be interested in. I was immediately drawn in: it has a 9/10 review score on Steam, and one of my favorite animes is Overlord, where the protagonist rules over a dungeon and is bent on conquering the world. (more…)
