Save Game’s Dragon Age Cocktails – Gather these and venture forth

If you’ve been playing Bioware’s latest installment in the Dragon Age series, you’ll know how difficult it is to tear yourself away from Dragon Age: Inquisition. However, if there’s going to be one reason to stop venturing through the Hinterlands, one reason to have you pause whatever romance you’re attempting with a particular party member, one reason to stop collecting Elfroot, we hope the allure of pairing Dragon Age party members with alcoholic beverages will be that reason.

I went along to do coverage for Save Game, but the truth is I would’ve went regardless. The first time I went was Expo 2012, and due to not being in the neighbourhood last year, this was my second chance to attend.
