DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION (PS3, PS4, XBOX ONE, XBOX 360) THE third in Bioware's excellent Dragon Age RPG series, Inquisition charges you with drafting and leading a group of characters into rugged battles against a staggering array of enemies - from earth-shattering High Dragons to demonic forces from the otherworld of the Fade.

You'll go hand to hand in visceral, heroic combat as your followers fight by your side, or switch to tactical view to co-ordinate murderous offensives using the combined might of your party. The results of your journey through this unbelievably vast, living world can be seen as you raise structures, customise outposts, and change the very landscape itself, as environments are re-shaped in the wake of your Inquisition.

It's pretty epic stuff, and there are literally hundreds of hours that can be spent moulding the course of empires, bringing war or peace to factions in conflict, and driving the ultimate fate of the world you find yourself.

While the storyline won't win any script-writing awards, every other part of this awesome adventure is up there with the very best this year, and deserving of the significant chunk of time you can invest in it.

.....POKEMON OMEGA RUBY (NINTENDO) CAN you believe that the Pokemon phenomenon was first bestowed upon us a 18 years ago? 18!

Now, a new generation of Pokemon people can experience the enduring storyline that unfolds further in Pokemon Omega Ruby and its sibling Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.

If you've never been a fan of the turn-based gameplay, this iteration is unlikely to attract you to the series. But hardcore fans will revel in the continued evolution of a prime gaming concept that easily stands the test of time.

It's a bigger world than ever before, augmented by a range of gameplay tweaks here and there that make this one of the best Pokemon releases to date.

The formula is still incredibly addictive, searching out and snaffling up Pokemon, increasing their powers for battles with the opponents you encounter in the Hoenn Region. For a small screen, handheld title, it'll suck you in and keep you there for a lot longer than you might imagine.
