Dragon Age: Inquisition – Size, Quality, and Value

The game that can easily occupy 100 hours

I like Dragon Age: Inquisition, I gave it a positive review and I have since continued to play it every few days, exploring some new choices for a different type of main character and trying to find new ways to use character abilities and focus powers.

But while actually spending time in its world, I often wonder whether its size, which is truly impressive, is an asset for the role-playing game from BioWare or a problem, and whether in the future I would like to see the same core formula linked to other franchises.

Here’s an example: I am currently trying to get all sha...

Will You Consent to Turning Your DNA into Storage for Your Music?

You could store virtually anything inside your very cells

So it seems that someone has finally released a music album stored on DNA. Yes, real, actual DNA. Deoxyribonucleic acid, the blocks of life, or rather the ball-riddled helix since the compound is depicted more as little spheres than blocks these days.

Sci Fi is rife with enhanced humans, just like fantasy fiction is littered with humanoid or not-so-humanoid races that are so much better than us in one or multiple ways.

Escapist fiction does have its place in society, just like soda and flubber, so I'm not about to start casting aspersions anywhere.

The Curious Case of Bill Cosby's Rape Accusations

Or how America's best-loved comedian became a public enemy

Veteran actor and beloved comedian Bill Cosby is a staple of American television. His lengthy career spans several decades and goes back to days when African-American actors on TV were a rare thing. His wholesome, family-oriented humor has placed him in the Pantheon of great American classics, earning him the nickname “America's dad.”

As the years passed, the lovable Cosby turned from the mild-mannered father with irresistibly funny word mispronunciation into the mild-mannered grandfather, a patriarchal figure looked kindly upon by everyone around him.

Far Cry 4 Teaches You That Eagles Need to Be Killed on Sight

No time to explain, kill everything that has wings

Far Cry 4 is probably the best in the series and you might think that Ubisoft has it down to science. That would be correct for the most part, but they do have a problem with the goddamn eagles. I mean, enough is enough.

So, I finally got to play Far Cry 4 and I was pretty happy that they didn't change a lot about it. It's basically the same game as Far Cry 3 with a different story, more untraversable areas (being so close to the Himalaya mountains), better graphics, and refined gameplay. So, where do the eagles come into play, you might ask. Well, the closest analogy would be rat...

Systemd Discussions Are a Good Thing for Debian

Conflict resolution pushes the project forward

The Debian community has been experiencing some interesting times lately and it all boils down to the adoption of systemd as the default init system. It might not seem like a big deal to regular users, but it's a different ball game for developers. Even if a part of the community saw this as a sign that Debian team is weakening, it might be a sign that it's actually stronger than people can imagine.

The last few days have been particularly interesting for the Debian project as quite a few developers have left the Technical Committee after they failed in their last attempt to stop ...

Who Will Be the First Hacker to Jailbreak the Apple Watch?

Device runs stripped-down iOS, integrates with iPhone

Apple is eyeing an early-2015 launch for its revolutionary smart-watch, while the company’s retail boss has been quoted giving an even more precise launch-frame: spring 2015. Which pretty much keeps the device off the market until March.

There’s a 10 percent demand for the device among existing iPhone 5 owners, according to a recent study carried out by investment bank Morgan Stanley. But something tells us there will be many people waiting in line to buy the thing.

It’s a new Apple-something

Dragon Age, Far Cry, Assassin's Creed, and Open World Anxiety

You need to play smaller games so that you don't get tired

In the last few weeks, the games industry has seen fit to launch all sorts of blockbuster games across many different platforms. Among them, quite a few offered huge open worlds that could be explored as fast or as slow as possible.

From the Thedas of Dragon Age: Inquisition, to the Kyrat of Far Cry 4, the Paris of Assassin's Creed Unity, the North America of Assassin's Creed Rogue, or the Los Santos of Grand Theft Auto 5 on new consoles, players eager to explore virtual environments have a lot to choose from.

I personally experienced almost all of them for the review...
