The 5 most terrifying moments and levels in non-horror games

I’m not a very big enjoyer of horror games. On the very rare occasion that I do boot up a horror game, a chemical change seems to occur in my body. The part of my brain responsible for going “holy mother of hell get me away from this scary thing” is dampened. I expect to be scared, and therefore I’m more resilient to said scariness. I might just not be very good at getting into the horror games mindset. My brain is too busy battening down all the hatches and readying the engines of war against the oncoming spookies and…

Dragon Age: Dreadwolf has hit its Alpha milestone and is playable start to finish

BioWare have announced, via a blog post by general manager Gary McKay, that Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, the fourth game in their fantasy RPG series, has completed its Alpha milestone. If that means nothing to you, BioWare describe it as the moment “a game all comes together… we can experience the entire game, from the opening scenes of the first mission to the very end.” The Dragon Age sequel was officially announced in 2018, but it was initially conceived as a game about wizard heists before restarting development. So, Dreadwolf’s progress should be encouraging to fans of the series. Read more

Original Mass Effect writer was surprised people wanted to bone Garrus

“Garrus blindsided me—but once we saw what fans wanted, we decided to deliver!” In a recent AMA on Reddit, lead writer on the first two Mass Effect games Drew Karpyshyn expressed surprise at people getting horny for Garrus. An important thing to consider when writing a story of any kind, is that if you make any kind of humanoid race that can bone, people will want to bone it. Characters like Garrus might not be to your taste, but plenty of people would happily bend over backwards for the turian, much to Karpyshyn’s surprise. “We always knew they’d come back…
