Having seen the trailer and read through the original concept for Murdered: Soul Suspect, I was immediately excited. It reminded me of the old school point and click adventures I grew up with; just grown up and matured. Most gamers (and I still use the term loosely) think a modern title needs bullets flying, robots stomping, half naked female characters and enough swearing to even turn the cast of Channel 4’s Shameless red in the face. But the truth is, gaming is still more than that to some of us, and little gems like this are breaths of fresh air.
The story of Murdered: Soul Suspect centres on Ronan O’Connor, a detective from Salem; Massachusetts. His past was a rough one filled with crime and prison time but was able to turn things around with the help from his wife and brother-in-law. The story starts as Ronan is confronting who seems to be an intruder and after a small scuffle falls from a second-story window to the ground. Just as he begins he’s shoot multiple times in the chest. After the final curtain goes down, so to speak, Ronan comes round and realises he’s a ghost and after a short sequence resolves to solve his own murder.
Investigations are the central point within the game itself as it is split between investigating different crime scenes and locations and exploration using existing police skills and new found abilities that come with being a ghost. When you first start out as Ronan you only have a few ghostly abilities, walking through walls is one of them but as the game progresses you’ll quickly learn how to possess animals, people, read minds, influence conversations and thoughts, interfere and cause disruptions with electrical equipment, and teleport around certain locations.

On Tuesday 22nd July Mark Darrah, Executive Producer on Dragon Age: Inquisition took to the official Dragon Age website to announce an unfortunate delay to the release of BioWare’s latest chapter in the Dragon Age story.
I’m writing to let you know that Dragon Age: Inquisition has a new release date of November 18, 2014 in North America (November 21st in EU). We appreciate the enormous support we’ve received from all of you to get to this point, and while this extra few weeks may not seem like a lot, I know the game you’ll play will be all the better for it.
Since we began working on Dragon Age: Inquisition almost four years ago, our goal was to create the best Dragon Age experience ever. It was that goal that motivated many of our decisions: moving to Frostbite, bringing race choice and customization back, improving tactical camera, building a team of characters whose relationships evolve based on your actions, and most importantly, crafting an epic, nation-spanning story that both draws upon past games and takes you to many new places in the realm of Thedas.
I’m privileged to be a part of a team that has been working very hard to surpass every measure they’ve set for themselves. That has meant completing huge amounts of game content, fixing bugs both big and small, and improving the overall experience. This last bit of time is about polishing the experience we want you to see. Ensuring that our open spaces are as engaging as possible. Strengthening the emotional impact of the Hero’s choices. And ensuring the experience you get is the best it can be in the platform you choose to play on.

The new improved player AI will show a player’s emption at key moments of a match and how the other players on the team respond with their own show of emotions such as missing an important shot or penalty, scoring the last minute goal to win a match.
