  4. If you've ever played a BioWare game, chances are you've played through a game written or designed by David Gaider. Gaider worked at BioWare for over a decade writing games, novels, and comic books for the company. He cut his teeth writing and designing for Baldur's Gate II and went on to play a major part in the creation of Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and then wrote and conceived the fictional world of every single Dragon Age game. With that pedigree, Gaider definitely possesses a familiarity with the minds of the various characters spread throughout Dragon Age. One of the biggest components of the fandom surrounding BioWare's modern juggernauts remains the shippers; people who become very invested in the fictional romances around the various companion characters the developer brings to life with so much care and attention to detail. After a Mass Effect or a Dragon Age releases, fans construct their own headcanons or write fanfiction, but the original creator always reigns supreme. To that end, one of Dragon Age's fans asked Gaider, who is no longer a works at BioWare, what Valentine's Day dates would look like in Dragon Age. Gaider's response was an absolutely adorable and cute gift to the Dragon Age fandom. You can read the highlights of his date descriptions below: Alistair's would probably start off as something which seems lame - like he takes you bowling. Then you realize he's rented the entire place, because he remembered your anniversary, and has it all set up with candles so he can clumsily serenade you while blushing the entire time. Fenris's dream date would probably involve raiding a magister's Tevinter mansion, and then - excited like a schoolboy - he demonstrates his latest choreography for you amidst the ruins. Plus, he brought wine. Dorian's dream date would be some elaborate extravaganza which you both decide to ditch halfway through to head down to the worst dive in the city. There you end up in a big fight with sailors. Who you then drink shots with after the fight's over until you all pass out. Zevran's dream date would involve him taking you on a tour of Antiva while he plays a mandolin. All the locals seem to know him and bring out cakes and other delightful treats. Eventually it turns out to be the lead-up to an assassination. After the fight, he apologizes with sex. Cassandra's date is taking you to a play of Varric's first novel. Her delight is palpable. You arranged to have her dragged on stage to play a character... at first she protests , but then plays the part perfectly. After, you walk along the pier while she talks about her dreams. Morrigan's dream date is taking you to break into a tomb full of musty tomes. You read passages to each other while she laughs at your interpretations of the text. As you're leaving, she suddenly remembers to tell you she had a lovely time. You're not allowed to call it a date. I'm pretty sure Shale's dream date would be going to a clay pigeon factory. The two of you would destroy larger and larger batches of clay pigeons. Between batches Shales would laugh and maybe dance a little jig. There you have it! If your favorite character didn't have a described date, you'll have to hope a different BioWare writer tackles the characters that they wrote throughout the series' history.

  6. I have a meeting with my college's esports team coaches tomorrow to see if the teams want to raise money for Extra Life.  Can't wait to see how it goes.

  7. Nintendo gave one of their most announcement heavy Directs to date earlier today, revealing the release dates of games coming to the Switch in the near future as well as teasing some longer term projects and an entirely new action IP from the creators of Bayonetta and Nier: Automata. Sandwiched between the major announcements came a number of indie reveals and announcements. The continuing flow of titles onto the system has made it one of the biggest gaming juggernauts of this generation, able to bring in new players and those fond of classic or artsy games. Without further ado, let's dive into what Nintendo had to show for their extremely successful console/handheld. Super Mario Maker 2 will release for the Switch this coming June. The sequel will bring all of the old features from the original that people loved and supplement them with a slew of new content for the best platformer builders to play with and construct their dream levels. There aren't a ton of details from the Direct, but it's likely we'll hear more as we get closer to E3 and Nintendo's customary announcements around that time. First, the company revealed Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, an upcoming action-RPG starring a huge roster of Marvel's biggest comic book characters. This will be the first time the series has seen a release in a decade and it's bringing with it an entirely new story that pits the biggest heroes of the Marvel universe against Thanos and his Black Order. While Marvel Ultimate Alliance largely exists in its own universe, there will be some nods and references to upcoming films, like an updated look for Captain Marvel and a focus on her powers and abilities. You can look forward to seeing more details coming out about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order as we get closer to its summer release window. A boxy new puzzle game will come to Switch on April 26. Box Boy + Box Girl continues the series by adding a co-op mode. Those who complete the game will find an entirely new adventure starring the tall box boy waiting for them. The title features over 270 stages, making it the most robust puzzle game in the series to date. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be receiving its 3.0 update soon. The free update will add a chunk of new content to the Switch's premier fighting game and will include Persona 5's Joker as a new character for those who purchased the DLC. In addition to the update, new amiibo figures based on the designs from Ultimate are coming. There aren't too many additional details, though Nintendo has said more will be coming; given the most recent patch notes for Smash, we'll be seeing a lot of new things on the battlefield. Players should expect to see the update release sometime in April. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker's Switch version will be getting a 2-player co-op mode in a free update that launches today. In addition to that game-changing update, Nintendo will release paid DLC to add 18 new challenges across new maps like a sunken ship or a candy land. Additional challenges will come to existing courses, too. Titled Captain Toad: Special Episode, fans of the game can purchase the DLC today to get their hands on one new course with the rest releasing on March 14. A digital bundle of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker also hits the eShop later today. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has slowly been spinning its gears up for a launch and now we finally know when to expect it on Switch! The Nintendo Direct showed off a bunch of impressive gameplay footage, giving many their first looks at character customization, hints at sidequests, and a number of interesting abilities like controlling gravity itself. Ritual of the Night will release for Switch sometime this summer. Dragon Quest Builders 2 will be coming to Switch, too. The new title supports 4-player co-op locally or online. Among a number of other additions, DQ Builders 2 will also add a first person mode to fully complete the Minecraft comparisons. The construction RPG releases July 12. Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition comes to Switch this fall. The new version possesses some striking differences from the original release. Players can decide to play it in a classic 16-bit mode for a truly retro feel. The soundtrack has also been fully orchestrated across the entire game, though it includes both soundtracks for players to choose whichever they like better. There were some complaints about the English voice overs, so the Definitive Edition also includes the Japanese voiceover options. Finally, new companion quests and storylines will fully flesh out the backstories of the various party members that join the hero on his journey to save the world. Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition launches this fall. Disney found a lot of success with their stuffed tsum tsum toys based on Disney characters. That popularity has turned the toys into a game of their very own. Disney Tsum Tsum Festival offers a collection of multiplayer mini-games for people of all ages as well as a core puzzle matching game. This game will come to Switch sometime in 2019. Star Link: Battle for Atlas on the Switch will receive a free update in April of this year that brings the members of Star Wolf into conflict with all the members of Star Fox. Players will be able to play as Falco, Slippy, and Peppy, each with their own unique abilities to combat the nefarious plans of their evil mercenary rivals. The popular Harvest Moon-inspired series Rune Factory will be coming to Nintendo Switch later this year with Rune Factory 4 Special. This remastered version of Rune Factory 4 offers a light RPG experience alongside farming, trading, and socializing with various locals. Unique to the Switch version, players will be able to marry NPCs who become close to the main character. Rune Factory 4 Special will release later this year. In addition to all of that, Nintendo confirmed that Rune Factory 5 is currently in development, though they didn't clarify anything more than that. Oninaki appears to be the next indie RPG from Square Enix in the same vein as I Am Setsuna. Oninaki puts players in the role of an individual who can cross the line between life and death to save lost souls. The balance of reincarnation has been thrown off, with souls becoming lost and turning into monsters that roam the land. As players save souls, they will unlock new abilities they can use to more effectively fight monsters with the right weapons. The deep, single-player RPG launches this coming summer. Yoshi's Crafted World will release on March 28. In addition to the platforming and puzzle-solving that players expect, keep your eyes peeled for the hidden costumes and minigames scattered throughout the worlds. These hidden costumes provide a bit of extra protection to Yoshi, too, so they're more than just decorative. Nintendo will release a demo later today that will allow players to go through the first course and experience its charm first-hand. This Nintendo Direct revealed a great deal of information about the upcoming Fire Emblem title, Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The turn-based RPG looks like it might have received an overhaul in terms of both its systems and story. The player starts as a mercenary who uncovers a strange power and receives an offer to teach students at a strange monastery at the center of three great nations of a fantastical continent. As all of this happens visions begin to haunt the hero hinting at a grand future yet to unfold. Naturally, there are three factions of students, one from each country. Players will have to choose which faction to tutor, leading to a branching story line and three different campaigns. From the basic plot ideas laid out in the Direct, it seems like the new Fire Emblem combines the school drama of titles like Persona with the traditional turn-based combat and deep systems of Fire Emblem. Fire Emblem: Three Houses releases on July 26. Nintendo teased a battle royale puzzle game called Tetris 99. Details were a bit scarce, but players will be able to hinder one another and battle to remain the last Tetris player standing in the online title that actually releases today! Dead by Daylight will be coming to Nintendo Switch this fall, though it's unclear whether there will be Switch specific additions to the indie hunter-hunted game. Toby Fox's Delta Rune Chapter 1 releases for Switch on February 28. Much like it's PC counterpart, the Switch version will be free, though the remaining chapters that will fill out the title will not be free. Final Fantasy IX, arguably the best Final Fantasy game of all-time, will be available on Nintendo Switch later today. Additionally, Final Fantasy VII comes to Nintendo Switch on March 26. The mecha action game Daemon X Machina has somehow managed to keep a low profile recently, but producer Kenichiro Tsukada hopes to change that with a demo releasing later today. The demo, a collection of missions titled Daemon X Machina: Prototype Missions, includes several sorties to acclimate and familiarize players with its gameplay and systems. The demo culminates in an encounter with a massive mechanical boss for a good final challenge. The demo also serves as a beta of sorts and some players who download it will be sent surveys to help the developers fine-tune the experience for the full release. Check out the demo and get hype for Daemon X Machina when it releases this summer. Touting the most realistic racing title on Switch to date, GRID Autosport will be coming to Switch. Players will be able to use motion controls to drive or customize their own specialized control schemes. Players can race one another in split screen or online across a variety of real-world maps. This version will also include all DLC released for the title on other platforms, meaning there are over 100 cars and 100 circuits to race with. Expect GRID Autosport later this summer. Chocobo Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy (March 20) Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice (Spring 2019) Mortal Kombat 11 (April 23) Unraveled 2 (March 22) Assassin's Creed III Remastered (May 22) To round out their Direct, Nintendo announced Astral Chain, a new IP from Platinum Games. Hideki Kamiya, the creator of Bayonetta, is supervising the creation of Astral Chain while the core direction duties have gone to Takahisa Taura, the director of Neir: Automata. The trailer provides nearly all of the details we have to go on: It's about police officers dealing with a terrorist threat in a crazy sci-fi world. They seem to have abilities or technology that allows them to summon mechanical warriors while also fighting themselves - connected by what one can assume is the titular astral chain. However, given the dialogue in the trailer, it's all too possible that their fight against the terrorists is inadvertently dooming the world. Astral Chain releases on August 30. THEY ARE REMAKING THE WIND FISH Erm... *ahem* Nintendo closed their Direct by teasing a resurrection of the classic action-adventure Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. The remake of the 1993 Game Boy title oozes so much charm and joy that it's, frankly, criminal. The revamped art style rivals some of the heaviest hitting cute aesthetics in all of gaming - and we get to play the new Link's Awakening before the year is done as this Switch exclusive will release sometime this year. You can watch the entire Nintendo Direct for yourself below if you'd like to see all of the announcements for yourself: Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

    10th Year

    Hehe, I know what you mean. If there is a word for this I'd be curious to know. But for the lack thereof I like to call it the strangeness of "Anniversary Math". When you think of doing something in consecutive years the 0 in the tens, and hundreds for whose whom might have this problem in 2101, is always one year more than the "anniversary year". Which is always the same year in the next decade/century. So in short.. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ o/

  21. The benefit of using emojis is being able to condense complete sentences into easy-to-decipher symbols (assuming you’re not an out-of-touch old fogie like me). Can they work the same wonders for Kingdom Hearts’ complicated narrative? Disney puts that idea to the test by producing a short video titled "A Look at Kingdom Hearts III: As Told Through Emoji" that is exactly as it sounds. The 4-minute short shrinks the epic scope of the adventure down to the size of a phone screen. It cleverly translates key moments into bouncing heads, message bubbles, and commendable use of the calendar. As someone who’s played a fair amount of Kingdom Hearts III, the video does a solid job of getting general story points across and is entertaining to boot. Disney begins by summarizing the intro of the first game before delving into an abridged retelling of Kingdom Hearts III’s first half. This means some light spoilers lie ahead in terms of when Sora encounters the various Disney/Pixar worlds and why. If you haven’t played the game and want to be surprised on that front, you’ll probably want to avoid this video. Everyone else can check it out below. Kingdom Hearts III is available now on PS4 and Xbox One. What did you think of the video? Share your thoughts in the comments!

    Kickoff meeting 2019 recap

    Hey all this past Saturday we had our kickoff meeting for this year at the Odenton public library. Attendence:19 First I just want to say it was so awesome to see so many new faces interested in plugging into the guild(as well as some familiar faces ^_^) We started the meeting off with introductions where everyone said a little bit about themselves including what types of games they play. After that it was time to dig into some food. chick-fil-a was provided by the hospital.( Thanks Cindy!) Sarah went over a brief presentation about what it is to participate in the guild as a volunteer. Some numbers to keep in mind: Johns Hopkins Children's Center raised 120k in 2017 and 111k last year(2018) last year we had about 30 less gamers signed up to participate. upcoming conventions some of the next conventions we have coming up are: Cecilcon -April 12 and 13th Awesomecon -April 26th-28th We were unable to get a table at Katsucon this year. New things for this year one of the things we would like to do this year is reach out to student organizations at college campuses to have them host some events. We also want to reach oit to local game stores and see if they would be interested in hosting some events. New Role We are looking to add a new role this year to the guild. The title "quartermaster" was discussed. The main duuties of this role wouldbe to keep track of and store our current inventory, getting table setups to and from the conventions. Multiple people expressed interest in helping with this so we may have a committee and one person as head of that commitee. Sarah's is planning on going over some training to help volunteers which may include some role playing. We would have the table set up just like we would at a con so people can see our basic setup and we can go from there. Reminder Sarah is going to follow up with paul about the possibility of us utilising Salesforce Next meeting a spesific date wasn't chosen for the next meeting but we intend to have one in march. We will post when a date is decided. Afterwards after the meeting we enjoyed a bit of gaming of course! Many people brought some board and card games to play. It was a blast getting to meet and hangout with everyone!

If you would like to participate with the Extra Life Baltimore Guild as a volunteer, or would like priority consideration for limited social events and convention access, please fill out the 2019 Extra Life Baltimore Guild Application. FAQ I already filled out a paper application at a recent Guild Meeting. Do I also need to complete the digital application? No. If you indicated you were interested in becoming part of Guild Leadership or serving on a committee, you may be asked to answer some additional questions via a separate application. Otherwise, the information you provided on your paper application has been entered by a Guild Leader, and you will receive an e-mail with instructions.

Ok, I created an account. How do I review and sign up for upcoming meetings, social events, and request a volunteer shift at a convention/event? There will be a brief training on how to use the site at our upcoming March Guild Meeting, and we may create some additional walkthrough materials that will be updated to this post as attachments in the future. In the meantime, feel free to message @Sarah here or in Discord and she will be happy to walk you through it.

  27. Depending on what platform you own and the subscription service you're signed up for, Anthem launches either February 15 for early birds or the 22nd for everyone else. Get hyped for Bioware's shared world shooter with a launch trailer designed to rocket anticipation to the stratosphere. The bombastic trailer doesn't reveal much that hasn't been shown already in terms of gameplay. It does, however, look very cool. Check it out to determine where the game sits on your excitement meter. Like Destiny, Anthem drops players into a shared alien world as Freelancers who pilot high-tech suits called Javelins. In addition to tackling enemy factions, Freelancers must also contend with dangerous fauna and violent weather events. Anthem recently wrapped up its open beta. It experienced several server issues, largely during its early VIP period for pre-order customers. Looking forward to Anthem? Let us know in the comments!
