Dragon Age: Inquisition
PC, PlayStation 3 & 4, Xbox 360 & One
3.5 stars out of 4 The upside of this ridiculously cold weather is that it gives you an excuse to sit inside and play "Dragon Age: Inquisition" all day. You'll need to put in the hours, because the third in BioWare's fantasy role-playing saga takes up to 150 hours to complete if you're a sucker for side quests. Sure, the story initially gets bogged down with the minutiae of kingdom politics and nonsensical lore, but eventually you'll fall in love with your merry band of warriors including a deeply sarcastic dwarven rogue and a mustachioed mage who is just as good delivering one-liners as casting lightning bolt spells. They help lighten the load for your hero, a would-be messiah who wakes from an amnesiac state bearing a magical hand capable of sealing an interdimensional rift that spews out evil demons. All in all, gaming's version of "Game of Thrones" has returned in grand style.
