Hi all! (Will get to Dragon Age in just a couple paragraphs…) Good to be back from vacation. We had a fun time, but it was a long time and it’s good to be home. We tried to keep up on comments over time, so hopefully we didn’t miss any – let me know in the comments below if you’re looking to hear from us about something!
The thing I was most excited about with coming home was Dragon Age: Inquisition. We had preordered it, it arrived, and was waiting for us. Lo! Game was there. I was hoping for my Sunday to be pop, bam, let’s do some playing! I didn’t care if it was Holly or me playing, just to see this game we have been waiting for since the moment we first finished Dragon Age 2. But… there’s not a save game import as anticipated by me in previousposts. So we were stuck going to the Dragon Age Keeponline to get our world set up like we wanted it! So let me regale you with our stories of distress, and talk through what I like about it.
Dragon Age: Inquisition comes out next week, and we’re super excited. Special edition preordered and on the way soon! We’ve been ready for this game since pretty much exactly the moment Dragon Age 2 ended, as it sets up a teaser/cliffhanger/hook so well that it made Inquisition look like a better and more interesting game than what we had just played!
So maybe some of the poll answers are a bit of a joke, but there’s some serious too… But definitely feel free to chime in in the comments as well!
It’s certainly a good week to have Dragon Age on the mind, with a new trailer out and a release date set. But Varric was always my plan for the letter V – the sort of character who makes you almost appreciate Bards. Almost.
Varric could likely talk himself out of any situation. And if that doesn’t work, he can always turn to Bianca, his clockwork crossbow. He keeps up almost constant banter through Dragon Age 2, shows interest in all of the different PCs. His loyalty is fascinating, as well: it seems almost absolute, but it is a loyalty to the story of you and your deeds, more than it is a loyalty to you, as the Champion of Kirkwall. He’s a fun character, and confirmed to be coming back in Dragon Age 3 out on October 7!
