    Episode 88 - Collateral Damage

    Episode 88 - Collateral Damage

    We're finally back to the plot for a week, as we see what's up with the Grey Wardens and Hawke. It's like a big reunion of all the characters and factions we used to play as.

    In Here Lies the Abyss, Hawke and a Grey Warden companion determined by your choices come together to help stop a plan to unravel the Wardens and summon a demon army. Along the way we'll talk about the faith-related implications of some of the reveals, how the Fade personifies fear, and how Dragon Age is really just putting old characters through the grinder to further the development of the Inquisition.

    Enjoy the show!

    Episode 87 - Along for the Ride feat. Steven Strom

    Episode 87 - Along for the Ride feat. Steven Strom

    Fanbyte's Steven Strom joins us to talk about Iron Bull, and despite being a fan favorite, we realized we had a lot to unpack about the Inquisition's resident Qunari spy.

    Along with talking about Bull's companion quest, romance, and some unpleasant enabling behavior, we also talk a little bit about Krem and how Bioware uses dialogue options to take some direct stances on his identity.

    Enjoy the show!

    Episode 86 - Pomp and Circumstance feat. DJ Stormaggedon

    Episode 86 - Pomp and Circumstance feat. DJ Stormaggedon

    Podcast rival DJ Stormageddon joins us this week to talk about Josephine, Dragon Age's politics, and the dangers of playing The Game.

    Josie's got some long standing family drama that has her in the sights of an assassin, and we've gotta decide if we're going to take the long, complicated political way out, or the efficient, sneaky way suggested by Leliana.

    We also touch on her rom-com romance, the difference between an advisor and a party member, and what Josie's role in Dragon Age 4 should be.

    Bonus: PAX Online Dragon Age Ranking Panel feat. Natalie Flores, Ash Parrish, and Josh Silverman

    Bonus: PAX Online Dragon Age Ranking Panel feat. Natalie Flores, Ash Parrish, and Josh Silverman

    Hello everyone! We did a PAX Online panel ranking all the companions of the Dragon Age series, and we naturally went over the time limit. So naturally, we thought it was important for us to keep the full discussion online somewhere without the time constraints we had in the live show. So here it is! Natalie, Ash, and Josh join us as we determine the true hierarchy of Dragon Age party members.

    Enjoy the show!

    Episode 85 - A Faded Past feat. Natalie Flores

    Episode 85 - A Faded Past feat. Natalie Flores

    Natalie comes back around one more time for the episode only she is qualified to appear on, as this week we're talking about Solas. The Inquisitor's Fade expert needs help saving a spirit friend, but on the way we'll talk about how he can be a mentor, a lover, or, if nothing else, a begrudging coworker.

    There's also a fair bit of spoiler talk in the latter half of the show, but we mention it with no ambiguity if you're playing along with us and this is your first time playing through Inquisition.

    Enjoy the show!

    Episode 84 - Guillotine Energy feat. Josh Silverman

    Episode 84 - Guillotine Energy feat. Josh Silverman

    Sera is the star of the show this week, as Josh Silverman returns to talk all about the friend of Red Jenny.

    We talk about Sera's commitment to taking down the 1% of Thedas, clarity under her nonsense, and a heartwarming romance between her and how it eluded Eric once again.

    At the end of the show we also talk about the Dragon Age 4 teaser we saw at Gamescom, with spoilers for Inquisition during. So tread lightly.

    Enjoy the show!

Reflex OneTwoThree ,

Thank you

I've had a lot of hit-or-miss luck with podcasts, but found this group in the midst of a great streak. I simultaneously have some "I wanna fight you on that" moments as well as some really strong "YES, EXACTLY THAT, YAY" moments.
I haven't even TOUCHED a lot of the podcast at this point, but knowing this podcast is here is definitely encouraging me to pick up some ME games as well as dive into another Inquisition run just so I can come back and see how well we match up (and where we differ) with our Inquisitors.
Thank you for being here and doing what you do.

Great pod. Great hosts.

These gents are a genuine delight. The show is a blast. The guests are stellar. If you’re a Mass Effect and Dragon Age fan it’s a must listen. They go so in-depth it’s like hanging with friends and just chatting about games.

It’s easily the second best BioWare related podcast ever made.

Thoughtful and relaxed BioWare banter

Kenneth Shepard and Eric Van Allen talk about beloved BioWare series like Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Their back and forth feels like listening to good friends debate and come together, and their guests are fantastic, especially when they disagree with the hosts.
