BioWare Caught Reviewing Dragon Age 2. Well, That’s One Way To High Scores.

Despite its flaws, I like me some Dragon Age 2. It’s repetitive, there’s like four locations, and fetch quests rule the day. Wait, I think that may all fall under repetitive. Shit. Shitfuck. When even Dragon Age 2 apologists like myself have some serious complaints, a company must do something. Developer Chris Hoban has done just that, taking to Metacritic to review the game. With a 10/10.


The developer, calling himself  Avanost, posed as a consumer and gave the game glowing praise while claiming that “Anything negative you’ll see about this game is an overreaction of personal preference.” Unfortunately, Avanost’s  own personal preferences were uncovered with  a little Internet sleuthing, as his user name was eventually tracked back to his real identity, Chris Hoban.

Outstanding, yo! I fucking love it. Even better is Electronic Arts response to the controversey.

Electronic Arts has not denied the chicanery, with a rep telling  Kotaku:  “Of course the people who make the game vote for their own game.  That’s how it works in the Oscars, that’s how it works in the Grammy’s and why I’m betting that Barack Obama voted for himself in the last election.”

Never back down! I fucking love it.
