How Dark Souls Influenced Dragon Age: Inquisition

There has been no shortage of Dragon Age: Inquisition-themed coverage during the holidays, but you might have nonetheless missed this short audio interview with creative director Mike Laidlaw over at Joystiq. Rather than talking about the game generally, the interview focuses on how Demon's Souls and Dark Souls influenced the latest in the Dragon Age series, which mostly translates in the way the title handled long-term resources and the inherent risks and rewards of exploration.

The interview is less than 9 minutes long (arguably less when one considers the musical interludes) so it makes for a pretty good listen during a break.
