Here comes another title with Roman numerals tacked on: the third installment of the Dragon Age franchise, arriving, most likely, on the Xbox One and multiple other platforms, later this year. Amazon Italy posted a product listing for Dragon Age III: Inquisition on Friday, a page that has since been removed. While the page was up, the game was classed as an Xbox One title, with no other platforms listed. An Electronic Arts representative was not immediately available to comment, presumably because they were too busy stealing teddy bears from orphans or being otherwise pointlessly evil. (I’m not the biggest fan of Electronic Arts, as you may gather.) Dragon Age III is built on the next-generation Frostbite 3 engine, which also powers the upcoming Battlefield 4, Need for Speed: Rivals, and the next Mass Effect sequel.
Along with its competitor Turtle Beach, gaming accessory company Mad Catz is one of the two manufacturers officially contracted with Microsoft to develop equipment for the Xbox One. Mad Catz is better known in some circles as Tritton. The official press release is rather tightfisted as far as details are concerned; presumably, they will produce Xbox One-specialized gaming headsets and connectors.
The Xbox One has updated its chat port to a new, proprietary design, eliminating backwards compatibility with old audio and mic accessories. Currently only Tritton and Turtle Beach are the only two manufacturers advertising Xbox One equipment, however, additional companies are expected to announce their Xbox One wares at the E3 Expo.

You’re laying next to me and we’re not
saying anything but we wish we could say
everything to light up this gloomy room
with the love that is bundled tightly
inside of us, carefully wrapped in lace.
You’re laying next to me and we’re begging
silently that relationships are as simple as
I love you and you love me; I kiss your face
so you know I can hear you even though you
are silent and you ask me why I am still here
after you dragged me across the carpet and
created brush burns deep enough to take off
layers of skin so I barely recognized myself.
I let the words roll off of my tongue like
running water over a cut: I love you I love you
I love you; you cover your face because
you know words aren’t enough to save us,
but I keep repeating it until my mouth is dry
with the escape of love-filled moisture between
my lips: I love you I love you I love you and I will
repeat it until my love is not enough for you
anymore and our hands grow too rough
to touch each other without chiseling.
You’re laying next to me and all I can think
is that you are the most beautiful thing
I have ever seen and this may not be
enough forever, but it is enough for now:
I love you I love you I love you
Dad finally slept in.
Dad never sleeps in.
Dad goes and goes and goes cause he didn’t have a father and he thinks to himself:
I’ll give my kids the world
I love them more than anything, I’ll prove it, I’ll provide -
- I think Dad thinks he doesn’t deserve to sleep in.
- Dad didn’t know how to be a dad because he didn’t have a dad.
I didn’t know his face until I was four -
- with his black-heeled boots and stern voice -
- my bare feet ran in fear. Before I realized that same scary voice
which appeared in the house only before sunrise and at night
would teach me how to be an anchor for the others.
Would explain damning and beautiful life to me.
Would lecture me on how to walk tall and tie my shoes.
“Attitude is everything”, “have compassion”, “take a bullet”,
“do the right thing, even if The Right Thing is breaking the law.”
He wouldn’t give a lot a lot of hugs until he realized hugs were okay.
But that’s alright.
I never really needed a lot of hugs anyway.
He was wrong: hugs aren’t weakness.
In short, he’s my hero.
(Even if he doesn’t know how to give hugs.)
Dad taught me how to be a man cause mom couldn’t show me how to be a young woman.
I chose it. I embraced it.
I was practice for the first-born son.
Dad could save a whole nation and still not sleep well, always thinking
I could’ve done more. I could’ve saved more people -
- Hans Hubermann, Schindler, Abraham Lincoln. My father.
His cousin had a dream Jesus told him He was happy with Dad.
Dad didn’t cry in front of us, but I heard he took a day off of work.
Brought mom flowers.
Smiled a little.
It was enough.
Dad loves everyone on the planet more than he loves himself.
Dad loves the most removed person on the earth more than he loves himself.
Dad works 50+ hours a week and sometimes does the dishes too.
And now, Dad sleeps in on weekends.
I’m trying to teach my father and mother how to like themselves.
Like I taught myself.
“Be a rock, firstborn son.”
“Be willing to take a bullet for the least of them all, Kaeli”.
Speak like mom, walk like dad.
grow up to be a Woman King.
Dad danced with Mom in the kitchen, Jimmy Buffet playing softly.
It was enough.
A web strategist can provide constructive criticism to help you make your website more user-friendly and to help you generate more traffic. However, if you’re trying to save money or want to do some research on your own first, there are ways you can assess your site using the tips of an expert without actually hiring one.
Here’s what to look for:
Fast Loading Time: Your site should of course load quickly. To test your site’s load time and have it analyzed for free, use this great tool from Pingdom.
Visually Appealing: Your site should be visually engaging with an attractive color scheme. Make sure your background and font colors contrast and are easy to read. Use a basic font that is easy to read – no cursive. Make sure you have an excellent logo, and use that as the header for your site.
Uniform Pages: Every page on your site should have the same background, font, heading style, colors and navigation bar across the top of the page underneath your logo. Your pages will stand out from each other in content. There is no need for them to differ in format.
Don’t Forget The Basics: Make sure to have a Biography or About Us page. You may think that who you are is evident from everything else on your website or that people don‘t have the attention span to read a bio, but many folks do want to know details and will feel more comfortable working with you after reading about you.
Engage Your Visitor: Use multimedia when possible. Include a page of photos, and a page of videos if appropriate. However, don’t go overboard. Unless you are a musician, your site should not have background music. Most people find that annoying and distracting.
Keep In Touch: Post a link to your Facebook page and Twitter so that people can follow you beyond your website. Always include a Contact Us page. If you use a contact form, also include your email address in case someone prefers to email you directly. Include an option to join a mailing list, but never have a pop up form requesting email addresses for a mailing list.
Create Your Own Error Page: Instead of relying on the generic not found/404 error page, create your own and make sure it has a link back to your home page. If you’re so inclined, make sure it also has an option to report the error to the webmaster. Errors are always unfortunate, but having a customized error page will make you look more professional.
Link Your Logo To Your Homepage: So many websites now have this feature built in that most users expect every website to have it. If they want to return to your homepage, chances are they will instinctively click your logo, even if you have a “Home” button on your navigation bar.
As a basic rule, think about what you like to see in a website as a user, and apply those qualities to your own page. If you need further help analyzing or editing your website, talk to a web designer or web strategist.
