Want to listen to the tavern songs from Dragon Age: Inquisition at your convenience, perhaps in an attempt to make your quaffing and carousing a bit more atmospheric? BioWare is making that easier than ever by giving away an album’s worth of bard tunes for free right now. But only for a short time.

According to the Dragon Age website, demand was high for access to the music so they have assembled 10 tavern tunes — including sagas like “I Am The One,” “Grey Warden” and “Empress of Fire” — into an easy and free to download archive.

“We’ve received many inquiries from our fans asking where they can get these songs, and we’re thrilled that you’re enjoying them as much as we do. As our way of saying thank you for being the awesome community that you are, we’re excited to announce that for the next two weeks, you can download these songs from a desktop computer free of charge!”

The songs are accompanied by the sheet music to Raney Shockne and Inon Zur’s songs, should your band of touring bards  be playing a tavern sometime soon.

Dragon Age Tavern Songs

The Dragon Age tavern music is separate from Inquisition‘s digital original soundtrack, which was made available to those who purchased the game.

Dragon Age: Inquisition’s tavern songs are available to download for free as MP3 files from the Dragon Age website until the 9th of Febuary. After that, BioWare says they’ll be “available for sale on many popular digital platforms.”

Do you have a favourite song from Dragon Age Inquisition? Let us know which one is ‘Your Jam’. If you’re into game music, take a look at the albums available from Bethesda games.

Remedy Entertainment’s upcoming science fiction game Quantum Break is set to release in the second quarter of 2015. The game revolves around a group of “special” humans who have a strong connection with time, allowing for some incredible powers. Quantam Break will allow players to take control of these vicious yet constructive powers that can manipulate time itself, players will use these enticing abilities to grind enemies to a halt, literally.

The developers will also try to attempt what many others have failed, merging their games characters and story with an upcoming TV series that goes by the same name. In a recent statement Remedy believed they had surpassed the development stages and think that they have blurred the line between a TV show and a video game.

And so 2015 has begun! After several months of celebrating Christmas and New Years, the Non-Fiction Gaming crew has many exciting tales to tell. By that, I mean we have built up an impressive back catalogue of games we have been playing that WEREN’T Smash Brothers.

Join us as we share our holiday gaming experiences.

 

Far Cry 4

Aidan B

I’ve been ringing in the new year plodding through the vast lands of Kyrat in Far Cry 4. When I say vast, I mean it. It might not take me as long to get from one side to the other as it would in Skyrim but it’s a hearty trek.

Source: http://cdn1.mos.techradar.futurecdn.net//art/games/Ubisoft/Far%20Cry%204/FC4_Screen_PvP_Rakshasa_301014_5pm_ParisTime_1414685445-578-80.jpg

Looks like an exciting walk at least!

Having re-played Far Cry 3 somewhat recently, it is pretty obvious that the two games share a striking amount of features. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The Far Cry 3 campaign was addictive and so too is that of its successor. Kyrat’s size does make finding the animal you need to craft upgrades more difficult. This somewhat alleviates the issue of your character’s linear scaling.

Despite a few minor complaints, I’m really loving Far Cry 4. Kyrat itself is beautiful and the writing is superb. Losing split-screen co-op, however, has really hurt my experience. I enjoyed playing through the side story with a friend almost as much as I did the solo campaign. To be perfectly honest, I have no interest in playing online co-op and so I’m being pushed more and more towards Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

 

 

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Final Mix HD

 KRS2

Most of us probably received a game or two for Christmas and the second Kingdom Hearts compilation turned out to be my very awesome gift. I just wrapped up Kingdom Hearts 2 and having recently played number 1, I have to admit number 2 is a bit more boring than the first.

I enjoy the story more in Kingdom Hearts 2 (especially all the stuff with Roxas), but the gameplay is kind of dull. They improved the combat system but all the worlds are much more tedious to explore. There are few puzzles and no platforming. It basically boils down to moving between 4-6 rooms in each world and killing enemies till you can move onto the next room. I admit the platforming in the first Kingdom Hearts wasn’t perfect (perhaps even bad) but I would have liked them to give it another try. Boss fights are still pretty awesome in Kingdom Hearts 2 and I love all the new challenges in the Final Mix version.

Admittedly I did want to cry in this additional scene, so that’s gotta count for something

Fire Emblem: Awakening

Dan

Having been interstate for the last few weeks, my console and PC have been sitting neglected. As a gamer, keeping occupied through the many hours flying across the country doesn’t present too many problems. So long as my girlfriend and I remember to pack all the different types of charger we’ll need.

My Nintendo 3DS has seen a lot of play during these travels sessions. Particularly Super Smash Bros and Fire Emblem: Awakening. Super Smash is great in small bursts, without friends to play with I can only get destroyed by crazy hand once or twice before tedium sets in. There isn’t any real story progression that interests me with Smash. I love the game, but ultimately it’s a game that needs to be played with friends and rivals. Airlines look down on activating wireless co-op just about as much as they look down on climbing onto the cramped economy seats to crotch thrust at your opponent after an intense victory.

Yelling, "Fuck You Samus!" Doesn't go down too well either. Guess Metroid fans fly Qantas.

Yelling, “Fuck You Samus!” Doesn’t go down too well either. Guess Metroid fans fly Qantas.

So that left me with Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Fire Emblem has been a go-to series for me on the handheld devices since the first few made it over to Australia. Similar to Final Fantasy Tactics and Advance Wars, the Gameboy Advance and later the DS/3DS works well with this type of isometric turn based strategy.

The latest game in the Fire Emblem series received some flak for having the option to take away permadeath for your companions and an easier game mode. I’m currently working through a Normal-Classic play through after getting frustrated on Hard in one of the early levels. I still get frustrated and reset often whenever a unit dies (I leave no one behind) but it’s certainly less frequent.

Fire Emblem Awakening battle Ani

This time can we please dodge?

I was enjoying the story, powering through for hours at a time whilst on holidays. The only problem is now that I’m back home, can I put down the Wii U or step away from the PC long enough to finish the tale of Chrom and his pals.

 

That’s it from us this week. What games have you spent you’re your New Year enjoying? Let us know in the comments!

finalfantasytype0hdscreen2

Following the upcoming release of the first M rated Final Fantasy game, the ESRB have published a report going in depth concerning their reasoning for this mature rating. The ESRB’s statement explains why Final Fantasy Type 0 earned this rating as well as how it could be brought down.

This is an action game in which players assume the role of students fighting to protect their nation from invaders. Players traverse fantasy environments and battle enemy soldiers and other creatures in melee-style combat. Players use swords, bows, firearms, and magic spells to kill various enemies (e.g., robots, blobs, mechanical beasts).

Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large blood-splatter effects; some sequences depict blood stains on players’ screen and corpses lying in pools of blood. Cut-scenes depict additional acts of violence: a man stabbing himself with a sword; a girl shot by a sniper; a character shot close-up.

During the course of the game, some female characters are depicted in outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage and jiggling breasts. In one sequence, players can use a spy camera to zoom in on a female character wearing a bikini.

The game includes event scenes in which a character sedates/drugs players’ character and performs unknown acts on them; it is implied that some of these acts may be of a sexual nature.

Queen_FF_Type-0

Final Fantasy Type 0 will be avaliable on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 17th.

hatred adults only rating

Hatred, the violent mass murder game that has drawn vast amounts of attention in the past months, has now received an adults only rating in North America.

In a statement a developer of the game said “Well, I’m not quite convinced why Hatred got AO rating while it lacks any sexual content, but it’s still some kind of achievement to have the second game in history getting AO rating for violence and harsh language only. Even if this violence isn’t really that bad and this harsh language is not overused. The guy from ESRB (by the way – very nice, polite and cooperative one) told me it’s all about ‘the context’ which people they’re testing gameplay video on will see.”

“I would prefer to get a standard M+ rating, because with AO we will have problems to get to consoles in the future, but on the other hand I think you guys (our fans) would be disappointed with it,” He continued.

Hatred will be available on PC in the coming months however an official release date is yet to be confirmed.

What do you think of this decision by the ESRB?
