Time for all the gaming news you can shake a stick at! Its T.W.I.G. for Sunday, September 1st, 2013.

The News:

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition will allow players with or without saves from Dragon Age I & II to customize the back story as much or as little as they would like using a new cloud based save that BioWare is calling “The Keep”. This is a nice solution and helps ease the move from PS3/360 to PS4/XB1 for those players who don’t want to lose their hard work.
  • The producers of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn have said that they plan to release a ‘major update’ about every three months. The game is pretty popular amongst the staff here, with me being one of the few not so thrilled by the game.
  • Users on the PS4 and Vita will be able to voice chat with one another. This is a pretty darn cool thing, I for one am glad to hear Sony expanding party chat features, that was one of the big things Xbox Live has had that I wish the PSN had.
  • Nintendo has announced a new handheld device, the 2DS, its a 3DS without the ability to play in 3D. It also is an entirely new, non-clamshell, design. It releases on October 12th (the same day as Pokemon X & Y) for $129.99
  • The WiiU is receiving a much needed $50 price drop to $299.99 effective September 20th. Also that day the digital version of Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD will be released as well as a new WiiU Deluxe bundle that includes the Wind Waker HD remake. The physical disk for Wind Waker releases on October 4th.

The new releases:

  • Total War: Rome II (9/3) – PC
  • Rayman Legends (9/3) – PS3, Vita, WiiU, 360, PC
  • Diablo III (9/3) – PS3, 360
  • Dead or Alive 5: Ultimate (9/3) – PS3
  • Castle of Illusion Staring Mickey Mouse (9/3) – PS3

Did You Know

The Little Sisters from BioShock didn’t start their life as little girls at all, but rather tiny mole-like creatures who scuttled around Rapture collecting Adam. Early concept art also shows them as retro ’50s-style robots, too. We think they made the right choice.

Also thanks to Eric for designing the new logo for T.W.I.G. hope you all like it!

The Story So Far. . .
  • One-Quest was founded many millennia ago in a galaxy know as "n00b," by a foundation of Nerds. n00b was a small galaxy ruled by an evil empire, known as the "Hipstars." One-Quest formed with the sole purpose of removing the Hipstar empire from power, and restoring balance to all Nerds...
