Episode 53 – Freddie and the Dragon Rebels

This week we cover dragons, a Iron Bull, and a jedi!

Mel’s Recommendation:

Game: Dragon Age: Inquisition by Bioware

  • If you haven’t played the previous 2 games in the series, make sure to go to dragonagekeep.com to learn the backstory of the world.
  • This is a fantasy rpg where you can play as a Mage, Warrior, or a Rogue. You also choose from 4 possible races: Human, Elf, Dwarf, or Quinari.
  • Freddie Prinze Jr. does the voice of a very popular character called The Iron Bull.  He’s a quite popular choice for the Romance story line. Regardless, he has some great dialogue in the game. I’m a glutton for punishment, so I went with Blackwall, the great bearded angst man.
  • It’s a really big story with a lot of entertaining interactions with different characters. Make sure to talk to everyone; you never know who will trigger a new quest line.
  • The combat system is pretty standard for these types of games, with the addition of a Tactical mode. This special combat mode pauses the fight and allows you to direct your attacks (or heals) more easily. It took me a while to get used to, but it’s quite useful.
  • It’s available for PC (of course), and XBOX One/PS4 for you console players.

Kelly’s Recommendation:

StarWarsRebels

TV Series: Star Wars Rebels on DisneyXD

  • A 2014 animated show that is part of the Star Wars canon that takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
  • More Freddie Prinze, Jr! He voices the character Kanan Jarrus, former Jedi.
  • Has a diverse cast that even passes the Bechdel Test!
  • A lot of the characters are based on the Ralph McQuarrie sketches made for the original Star Wars script.
  • Jar Jar free… so far!!
  • And seriously, who doesn’t want this lightsaber?
