Villains, antagonists or simply put bad guys are important elements of every literary or cinematic work. They are what makes any story nuanced and they push our protagonist forward. Antagonists are such a vital part of every fiction, but to write and portray a compelling villain might be more difficult than for the protagonist. If... Continue Reading →
Upon playing Dragon Age: Origins for the purpose of the review, I realized a grim future in front of me, that I'll have to play Dragon Age 2 and Dragon Age: Inquisition.

There are many unsuccessful attempts at launching a video game franchise. Bioware's attempt at launching two franchises fortunately ended with success, one being the Mass Effect franchise and the other one being the Dragon Age franchise.

This article is a review of Glass and an opinion piece about its director. It's a response to our other positive review of Glass (by Adrian). M.
