Back during E3 Square-Enix slyly announced that their recently rebooted MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV would be introducing marriage, both gay and straight, to the game. This move came as a welcome surprise for many gaymers, following a series of banned forum posts regarding same-sex marriage during the game’s beta-testing phase. A GM responded to the issue, but the game’s development teams stayed mostly quiet on the issue until the big marriage announcement in June.

To celebrate the new nuptual options, and to thank the developers for making a more inclusive choice, the Rough Trade Gaming Community held the first ever Eorzean pride march in Final Fantasy XIV.

Meet Dorian, Dragon Age: Inquisition’s “Fully-Gay” Mage

While checking out Dragon Age: Inquisition at E3 this year we were introduced to a number of new characters, including the charming mage Dorian. The quick-witted party member was a standout from the moment he appeared on screen. I couldn’t help but shake the feeling that this mustachioed magic-man had a little….something else, going on. My video game gaydar (gaymedar?) may not always be on point, but I have to admit it was going off. From the stache to the sass; he felt like the kind of guy you’d meet at a gay bar in San Francisco. What’s more the game is already boasting a rather diverse party lineup, a rare find when dealing with high-fantasy. But then, I thought, most characters in the Dragon Age world are bisexual to some degree anyway, and didn’t think much more of it.

Then I wake up this morning to find that David Gaider, lead writer on the Dragon Age series, went and confirmed that Dorian is actually gay. “Fully-gay,” in fact.
