‘Tis the season to be jolly, or at least the right time to make a decent attempt at looking jolly, around a table full of relatives. You know what I mean.

What in Thedas am I talking about? Last week I visited BioWare and experienced this clever studio’s groundbreaking take on “family”, thanks to five hours with the game.
