I need you to stop me from writing a thing Lin…
It’s gonna be bad…
My week has been shit. granted it ended better than I thought it would but the stress still has me feeling…not myself. So I’ve decided that I’m going to get my self drunk Saturday night. However so as not to be a sad sot chugging booze as I browse tumblr and read fanfiction I will be getting myself sloshed in the form of a drinking game. So here’s the voting part.
STAR WARS (Original Trilogy)
LORD OF THE RINGS (unextended editions)
RED VS.BLUE (up to season 4/5)
INDIANA JONES (excluding Temple of Doom, I don’t want to throw up my booze)
OURAN HOST CLUB
CLUE + RADIOLAND MURDERS
That it called 9-1-1 on it’s own. It was rather startling to have a cop come to the door and ask if everything was okay. Nice to know they care, but it freaked the fuck out of my poor brother.
Those who know me *coughlin-d-zandbtvsreferenceforeveryoccasioncough* will be sitting there going, “Yes, and?”
Well it has been brought home to me recently that I am ‘that kid’ when I find a movie/song I like I will watch/listen to it obsessively and quote or sing along. I am like the worst radio station EVER.
I have not changed at all from the little girl who watched Cinderella so many times in a row with the windows open that the roofers working next door started hammering in time with ‘bibbity boppity boo’ (true story).
Once, in a place long forgotten, in a time no one remembers, there existed a creature.
It was sleek, powerful, and massive. Scales the size of palm fronds glistened and glittered in the light. During the night the reflection of the stars made it seem as firmament on earth.
Talons, sharp as scimitars and six time as large and deadly, gouged the soil when it walked.
It’s wingspan should have blocked out the sun, but it’s radiant plumage only served to refract that warmth and light into a plethora of colors and shades, blinding all that saw; dazzling them with its deadly grandeur. But the light of the moon seemed to be absorbed, the magnificent feathers radiating a gentle prismatic glow.
The tragedy of beauty is that it cannot exist once it has been seen, because there will always be those that covet it.
And so it was with the creature, those that wished to keep it for themselves began to hunt it. Harrying the gorgeous beast across land and sea, fields of Ice and miles of swamp.
With nowhere to rest it’s great mass the creature ran and flew until its limbs gave out and the giant heart spasmed and ceased to beat.
The greedy ones crowded around it’s body squabbling over who would claim the magnificent prize. But all watched in awe and frustrated rage as the corpse melted away, the bones turning to ash and scattering in the wind.
So in that time remembered by none, in that place forgotten by all, a creature died.
So, I should not be nearly as excited for this game as I am; considering there’s almost nothing about it out.
There’s this article: http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/09/17/dragon-age-3-inquisition-announced
Which reveals a little about the plot, but I’m pretty sure everyone already expected it to take place in Orlais. I’m not quite sure how I feel about being the leader of an Inquisition but if the story is well done, which it usually is, then I’m sure I won’t have many problems with it.
The physics/graphics engine makes me raise an eyebrow, but as long as they don’t go back to the hub-based, copy/paste dungeoning of DA2 I think I can look past that.The console issue irritates me though. I don’t want to be limited to the PC version, or have to buy a next-gen console. I don’t have that kind of money.
There are other questions to be considered though:
If our Gray Warden survived the Blight, will they show up?(Unlikely since the Gray Wardens are very leery of interfering in anything that doesn’t concern darkspawn.)
But what about Ferelden? Some of their refugees were still in Kirkwall when Anders proved he was the biggest dick since Scar from the Lion King.
And What happened to Hawke? And all his/her companions? Is Varric going to come back? What about Isabela? And Avaline honeymooned in Orlais with her second husband Donnic.Will Merril be an apostate you have to hunt down? And this would be the perfect time for Fenris to be a Templar supporter.
Then there’s Pendergast. We already know the Chantry interrogated Varric, that’s how DA2 was narrated, but is she one of our companions, our Superior, or our competition?
It’s already fairly certain that Leliana will have another cameo, but will anyone else? Sten perhaps? (Ogren and Wynn appeared in Awakening and Zevran and Alistair[if he hadn’t abandoned your GW] had cameos in DA2) Morrigan is almost certainly gone by this point, but are they going to be predictable and make Flemeth the Big Bad?
I suppose I’ll just have to wait until ‘late 2013’. Whatever THAT means. Because it could be anywhere from August to December.
