And by “right now” we really mean a two to three week period, which, if you take the overall gaming calendar into consideration, is but a foetus in the grander scheme of things. So what is this all about then? We’re glad I implied your asking: Lazygamer, along with kalahari.net, are going to be bringing you regular updates of what’s out and awesome, and what’s coming and even more awesome.

Hit the jump as we take a look at a collection of five games, some of which are available now, and some of which are right around the corner.

Dragon Age II
Developer: BioWare
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Available: Right now!
kalahari.net price: from R304.16 (delivered in 24 hours)

The sequel to 2009’s phenomenal hit Dragon Age: Origins sends players right back to Thedas for another RPG adventure from developers BioWare. This time around players take on the role of Hawke, but much like in Mass Effect, only the class, gender, appearance and first name are customisable. With this streamlined approach to players’ characters, BioWare is able to focus on story and plot development. This, according to many, is one element of the game that BioWare has nailed. If you’re into your RPGs and you love a well structured story, then Dragon Age II is a no-brainer.

Look out for Lazygamer’s review on the latest fantasy romp. In the meantime you can check out our post on the colourful sex scenes found in the game (obvious spoiler warning), which are sure to appeal no matter which way you or your character swings.

We Dare
Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Available: Right now!
kalahari.net price: from R259.16 (delivered in 24 hours)

Pfft! Those namby-pamby Brits and Yanks feared for the delicate sensitivities of their people, so caused such a stink over Ubisoft’s risqué new party game that the title won’t be seeing a release in those territories. In South Africa, we like our beers cold, our rugby teams manly and our party games kinky, so We Dare is 100% available here.

Out on both the Wii and PlayStation Move, Gavin will argue that Ubisoft needs to be applauded for having the balls to release a game like this. It’s new territory for mainstream gaming, that’s for sure. Look out for an official Lazygamer review, but quite honestly at the price on offer, there’s really no reason not to pick this up just for the fun of it.
