PS4, PS3, And Xbox 360 Gets Dragon Age DLC Next Month

PC and Xbox One players have already gotten a chance to play Jaws of Hakkon, when the DLC originally released on March 23. Fortunately, PS4, PS3, and Xbox 360 owners won't have to wait much longer to dive back into Thedas.

Dragon Age's official twitter account confirmed that Jaws Of Hakkon will be coming to its remaining systems on May 26. Dragon Age: Inquisition's Jaws Of Hakkon DLC will set fans back $14.99, but it introduces players to a new area called the Frostback Basin. Players are forced to deal with a group of independent hunters who settled in the southern mountains of Thedas before investigating what happened to the last Inquisitor who entered this land before he chased after a dragon.

Check out the trailer here, and read Joe Juba's impressions of the content to see if it's worth playing.

Madden NFL 15 Drafts A New Set Of Rookies

This year's NFL Draft is infusing teams with new talent, and you can make use of all 32 players from the first round in Madden NFL 15's Ultimate Team mode and the game's mobile version.

To unlock Elite versions of the newly drafted players in Ultimate Team, you have to first complete a set consisting of multiple collectibles and a player item from packs.

The collectibles – NFL draft badges and new team draft collectibles – have already been released in the mode, and these must be paired with the base edition player items of the new draftee to form a set. The set then unlocks an elite version of the new player. Multiple NFL draft badges are needed for the set (the higher the draftee the more badges required), and naturally, the new team draft collectible must match the team the player was drafted by.

One year ago yesterday, Ubisoft released its poetic RPG Child of Light. To celebrate the occasion of its first anniversary, the publisher has made available a downloadable art book with a new story set in the land of Lemuria.

Written by Child of light scribe Jeffrey Yohalem, the digital book tells the story of Reginald the Great as he journeys throughout the land. Throughout the story, you’ll see cameos from some of the game’s characters as Reginald pursues his quest.

Ubisoft says other books set in Lemuria have already been written. In order to illustrate them though, the team will be turning to the community for submissions. Details on how to participate will be made available later.

Make Two Giant Mountains Say Whatever Silly Things You Want

This has very little to do with gaming, but it has everything to do with play. A new website is a simple animated vista featuring two mountains with gaping maws and clever tongues. OK, scratch that last thing, because the Internet is feeding them things to say.

The concept is simple. By using the hashtag “#mountains” on Twitter or tweeting directly at the account (@MoMountains), one of the two geological wonders will recite your message. The dynamic duo are also monitoring the “#bad” hashtag.  

The website bears credits naming Magnus Ostergren, Thomas Oger, Joakim Areschoug, Nils Friberg,Jennifer Aston, Marcus Flodihn, Marcus Frandsen, Rasmus Karlson. It also carries the name of the a capela group, which specializes text to speech solutions. As a viral proof of concept, Mountains of Mouthness seems to be working, as the Internet is taking notice.

Watch Us Stream And Discuss The Star Ocean Series Today

It's that time of month again! Our next episode of Grind Time: The RPG Live Show is all about the Star Ocean franchise.

Earlier this month, Square Enix pleasantly surprised RPG fans by announcing Star Ocean 5 is on the way. Up until that point, the series' future looked doubtful, due to the lackluster performance of the fourth entry and a mobile company purchasing developer tri-Ace. But with this the news of a new entry, we thought this would be the perfect time to examine the series, what makes it special, and what we'd like to see for the future. We'll be streaming Star Ocean: The Second Story and answering your questions while doing so.

The fun starts today (4/30) from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm CT (2:30 - 4:30 PT,  5:30-7:30 ET). Tune into our Twitch channel then to watch!

Dead Island 2 Delayed Until Next Year

Bad news for Deep Silver today, as the publisher has delayed a second title into next year. Following the hiccups with Homefront (also moved into 2016), the follow-up to last-gen’s Dead Island won’t make its planned 2015 release.

The move was announced via Twitter. The full statement follows:

We have always set ourselves a big goal for Dead Island 2: to create the sequel that takes Dead Island to the next level. A game that takes what our fans tell us they love about Dead Island – multiple different characters to play with, co-op, and turning a paradise setting into a zombie slaughter melee – and a game that adds a ton more content and combat options on top of that.

You Can Embed And Play The Internet Archive's Old MS-DOS Games On Twitter

The future is here. There is no reason to ever leave Twitter again.

Wired’s Chris Kohler noticed that you can now embed MS-DOS games within tweets. The process is simple (just copy the URL of the game you want to embed), but the results are magical (or science, if you want to get technical).

Using Twitter’s web client, you can play the linked game right within the tweet. As an example, I offer you this important piece of advice:
