I’ve been playing the Dragon Age Inquisition single player campaign for over 30 hours and in that time I feel like I’ve traveled everywhere, but gotten nowhere. Don’t get me wrong; I love every second of it, but sometimes it’s nice to get away from the gravitas of the main narrative and smash things up RPG style with friends in the title’s co-op mode. Earlier this week, Bioware released Destruction, the first in what promises to be many free updates for the multiplayer portion of the game.

Have you heard, NHL 15 is missing a few features? Special articles

Have you heard, NHL 15 is missing a few features?

I remember being thoroughly disappointed that last years NHL 14 was not going to appear on the Xbox One or the PS4.  Every other major North American sport received their next-generation iteration; hockey fans got the proverbial short end of the stick. But I believed that the NHL franchise was in good hands, if only for the quality the developers had shown in the series' previous entries, and if those developers needed an additional year to fine tune their game, great.  After playing the full game via EA Access early trial, I am worried again.
