Number 4: Bioware
Mass Effect and Dragon Age… how can you not love Bioware? They brought femShep into the world. Ok, they also gave her scary makeup, but still. And Garrus and Tali ♥ And Jacob D: And epic epic Dragon Age. And Alistair D: They definitely write characters you have an opinion about. Which is an awesome thing. Sexy storytelling and freedom of choice put Bioware at number four. Mm yes, they would be higher up on this list if not for Jacob and my inexplicable hatred for EA :)
Some Dragon Age III details are slowly leaking out. Will update with more info as we can. Here’s what we know so far.
- Dragon Age III has had longer pre-production that just about any other BioWare project.
- One level in Dragon Age III is as big as all of Dragon Age II’s levels
- Customization is going to be bigger than Dragon age Origins. Follower customization will be deep.
- You will play a Human character.
- You may be able to have and control your own Castle.
- Flemeth will make an appearance in DAIII
- Investigating ways of bringing across your ‘game choices without having to have game saves. *That could be a hint to a next-gen SKU*
- Game is going to be visually stunning with FROSTBITE 2 working as a base along with custom engine work.

Wrex and Grunt Dragon Effect Mercs
Imagining the Krogan as sort of a subsidiary race to the Qunari. Lesser in number and therefore mostly serving as hired mercs instead of having an actual system of government.
Grunt- referenced Sebastian Vael’s armor a bit for Grunt’s look, wanted him to come across as more of a good natured young Krogan who is trying to distance himself from the violent nature of his race. Maybe Shepard would run into him while he’s out on a soul searching pilgrimage or something.
Wrex- By contrast I wanted Wrex to look like he’s totally embracing his badass nature and I’m imaging him as leader of a wondering band of pillaging Krogan mercs before deciding to aid Shepard. (maybe a renegade Shep gets Wrex while a paragon gets Grunt).
Next up will either be Garrus and Thane or Tali and Liara, haven’t decided yet.

Last week we posted some new details on a possible Dragon Age III last week from the BioWare panel at PAX. Well, now you can catch if for yourself after the break. So who’s excited at the idea of a new Dragon Age with a sweet new engine and no copy pasta environments?
Designer Chris Myles is at it again and this time he brings the Omni-Tool from Mass Effect to life. It’s complete with a flip out Omni-Blade!
“Made from trans-orange 2.5mm sheet acrylic (laser cut, heated and hand bent) with a few 4-40 screws /nuts and straps. Heated in an oven at 325~350 for 15 min (with a little spot help from heat gun) and then bent by be-gloved hands into its final shape.”
Adam Fisher took the Dark Knight and built him up, in his mind, how he would look within the Mass Effect Universe. This is Adam’s entry into the Comicon Challenge 2011: Alternate Universe. See a 3D turnaround video here.
Custom Nerf gun creator Brian Johnson put a much needed Mass Effect spin on the Nerf Stampede. This functioning 18 round beast is now on sale at his Etsy store. You can also check out his deviantART page for more weaponry.
