Moving Pixels Podcast: 'Dragon Age' Expanded?

Nick Dinicola

Dragon Age: Origins received a great deal of DLC, but do these downloadable prologues, epilogues, and side stories add anything to the diverse and complex world of Origins?

With one Chris out and another Kris in, this week the Moving Pixels crew travels to Ferelden to discuss the world of Dragon Age: Origins and its many expansions. Do these downloadable prologues, epilogues, and side stories add anything to the diverse and complex world of Origins? Or are they just recycled levels splashed together to make a quick buck? Join us as we dig into everything from the game itself to the demo for the sequel.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.

Face: A Visual Odyssey (By the Book)

By turns alarming and awe-inspiring, Jessica Helfand's Face: A Visual Odyssey offers an elaborately illustrated A to Z—from the didactic anthropometry of the late 19th century to the selfie-obsessed zeitgeist of the 21st. Enjoy this excerpt of Face, courtesy of MIT Press.
