Monday, February 13 at 12 p.m. PST, BioWare will be hosting a Q&A about the multiplayer demo with Mass Effect 3 combat designer Corey Gaspur.
OldRepublic.net is awarding a Star Wars: The Old Republic 60-day prepaid time card to the two site members who submit the most popular (community-voted), original SWTOR guides. You have until February 15th to register, submit an entry to the contest, and get upvoted. For more details, check out their contest announcement.
The latest blog update from the SWTOR devs addresses some of the feedback from the player community regarding the latest changes to the UI - namely the flashing that seems to turn your action bar into a nightclub when you're spamming abilities. The response from the team does show some responsiveness to community feedback, and in a couple of weeks we should be seeing new options to customize this aspect of the UI. Read More

BioWare/EA Marketing guy David Silverman recently commented on Twitter to let people know that the long-anticipated FemShep trailer "won't release after the demo." We can probably safely assume that he is referring to the Mass Effect 3 demo coming on February 14, and this means that the trailer may be released before or at the same time as the demo. Thanks to @femshep_com for the heads up!
Ah hah! Found the clip of the Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker movie combat scene that aired on G4TV's X-Play a couple of nights ago. It showcases more of the computer animation work and how that meshes with a more classic cell-shaded animation style when face-paced combat is portrayed. This also comes with the news that "Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker won't be out until later this year," according to the G4TV post (this only applies to the English direct-to-video release). Videos after the break. Read More
Dark Horse's blog has recently published a short interview with Dragon Age writer David Gaider, who has penned the upcoming new Dragon Age comic series showcasing some companions you may recognize from the Dragon Age games. The most intriguing tidbit is probably the mention of a solid release date for the first issue - February 22 - and that it will only be available digitally through Dark Horse Comics. I've added the release date to our events list on the sidebar.
