This week on VGS…
We may have to amend that title, APOLOGIES to all of you who listen regularly we will be producing our weekly shows but recently due to an overflow of awesome games (and game interviews) we have been inordinately slammed!
On VGS Andy and Dave take the first hour to of course talk about the latest releases including an impassioned plea from Andy to get Dave to JUST PLAY MARIO MAKER.
Have you had a chance to play one of the most adorable games ever made? If not, here’s the voice of Mario playing the game!
It’s a double stuffed show of excitement as we (once again) dive head first into the world of Dragon Age Inquisition. With the series (at least for the time being) reached a close with the Trespasser DLC it’s time to look back.
Unofficial spokesperson for all this Dragon Age, Ashe –LADY INSANITY herself joined the program to talk all about her experience with the game and what she felt when it was all over.
Ashe has been a Youtube/Twitch personality for quite some time focusing on expansion character based game development. As a young woman operating in a notoriously misogynistic field, Ashe explains how she was able to find her voice and how the community made that easy.
If listening to the entire show isn’t your idea of a good time you can JUST watch the interview in the video below.
Part 3 of our interview with Dragon Age writer David Gaider also makes an appearance, this is a MUST listen for all DA fans.
Gaider outlines how Inquisition came to be and what the game COULD have looked like if those deep cuts weren’t made. Including his thoughts on characters like Cassandra and Dorian. Agree? Disagree?
“I really enjoy what happened with Cassandra. Cassandra in DAI was a character that I was worried would be inherently unlikable. It would be too easy to have somebody whose main focus is their faith, who could come across as being too strident and self-righteous.
Those are very unlikable qualities for the most part. So, is there a way that I could make a character that discussed faith without coming across as overly critical that your faith maybe differed from hers? Or that you didn’t have faith, that she could still acknowledge that and that didn’t threaten her faith? I wanted to see if I could approach that from a standpoint and make her an endearing, strong character. I was very happy with where that went.”
