Dragon Age expansion rings in the New Year next week

Dragon Age Origins DLC coming to Xbox 360 and Windows January 5, PS3 "later in January"

Ringing in the New Year with 100 per cent more Darkspawn, BioWare says its next Dragon Age Origins downloadable expansion pack will be out for Xbox 360 and PC on January 5. (Sorry PS3 owners, you'll have to wait a few extra weeks for the DLC pack, which BioWare says should be available "later on in January.") BioWare isn't saying why, though the original game was also supposed to arrive delayed on PS3 (it ended up shipping simultaneous with the Windows and Xbox 360 versions anyway).

The 'additional content'/'DLC pack'/'sub-sub-expansion' (or whatever you want to call it) goes by the name Return to Ostagar, referring to the game's border city between where the good and bad guys slug it out perennially. Apparently you're allowed to slip back to Ostagar to "exact...revenge and embark on a quest for the mighty arms and armor of the once great King Cailan when [you] revisit Ostagar, the site of the Grey Wardens' darkest hour." Sounds like fun.

The expansion was due in late 2009, but missed the holiday window. Prior DLC packs The Stone Prisoner and Warden's Keep were launched simultaneous with the game in November.

Available next Tuesday, "Return to Ostagar" will set you back 400 Microsoft Points, or US$5.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
