Just as Bioware has guys admitting to being fans of our games, we’ve got plenty of folks here that giddy when a new Bioware game is released. This was definitely the case this past week with the release of Dragon Age Origins. As I write this on a Sunday night, I see at least six developers playing it on Xbox LIVE (with probably more playing on PC and PS3).
Outside of Dragon Age, it seems that Borderlands, Brutal Legend, and Torchlight are among the most popular games currently being played by our team.
