Sharp contrasts at the Detroit auto show

On Monday, during the very first press conference, General Motors unveiled a concept for the Chevrolet Bolt (above) — a pure electric vehicle intended to cost $30,000 after federal tax rebates and have a 200-mile battery range. DETROIT — With the introduction of an affordable electric car that can go 200 miles on a single charge, General Motors sets up a showdown with Tesla to sell an electric vehicle to the masses.

Metareview: Dragon Age: Inquisition

‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ Review: Into The Great Wide Open. This is Part One of an ongoing review of ‘Dragon: Age Inquisition.’ In order to play the game like a normal gamer rather than a reviewer with a tight deadline, I’m taking my time with this monster of a game. In the wake of the disastrously incoherent, repetitive, and nearly-linear Dragon Age II, BioWare has thrown around a lot of claims for Dragon Age: Inquisition.BioWare’s sprawling fantasy RPG offers an embarrassment of activites to explore, but sometimes fails to provide the motivation to do so, says Stace Harman.For those unfamiliar with Dragon Age, it’s essentially a role-playing game based in a medieval ...

‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ is the most accessible role-playing game I’ve played. In the wake of the disastrously incoherent, repetitive, and nearly-linear Dragon Age II, BioWare has thrown around a lot of claims for Dragon Age: Inquisition. BioWare’s sprawling fantasy RPG offers an embarrassment of activites to explore, but sometimes fails to provide the motivation to do so, says Stace Harman. I recently vented at length about my apathy for finishing video games and specifically bemoaned the big budget “style,” in which a small, interesting idea is hidden inside a two-ton container of filler. BioWare is never going to live down the furore surrounding Mass Effect ...

Dragon Age Inquisition review. In the wake of the disastrously incoherent, repetitive, and nearly-linear Dragon Age II, BioWare has thrown around a lot of claims for Dragon Age: Inquisition. BioWare’s sprawling fantasy RPG offers an embarrassment of activites to explore, but sometimes fails to provide the motivation to do so, says Stace Harman. BioWare is never going to live down the furore surrounding Mass Effect 3’s ending, both the initial outrage at is content and the fact that it was then patched up and altered to appease the masses. After the critical and commercial success of tactically-astute series progenitor, Dragon Age: Origins, BioWare took a sharp left turn for the release ...
