So I’ve still been playing Dragon Age… I honestly don’t feel like doing anything else but that when I get a chance. I’ve grown increasingly bored and burnt out on my other pursuits, namely SL and WoW so I’ve really enjoyed escaping into Dragon Age. I’m an admitted alt-a-holic so I still haven’t even come close to finishing the game because I keep rolling new toons to play through different class/specialization/spec combos to find one I’ll be happy to take to end game. I ended up rerolling my rogue completely. I grew increasingly annoyed at her hairdo (it was stiff and odd during cutscenes and battle) and the terrible patchwork spec I’d chosen that I thought it would be less painful to just remake her from scratch. I’m much happier this time around. I was able to correct a few other little mistakes I’d been unhappy with as well, I made sure not to sell the Chasind Robes this time and to kill the Desire Demon in the Circle Tower for the Templar Armor. So now my rogue and Alistair can look ever so stylish while battling Darkspawn. I love taking screenshots during battle even though it has more than once led to my team’s demise lol. But dang it, it was worth it. Click through to see them larger.
So I finally am getting to play Dragon Age! My husband bought it for me for Christmas but unfortunately we didn’t really look at the specs and found it wouldn’t run at all on my old machine. So it sat. So lonely and abandoned. It was sad to see that pretty case sitting on my desk.. just begging to be played. Luckily, it didn’t sit for long, it plays great on my new computer and I’m so glad because it’s such a fun game. It’s been a while since I played a single player RPG type game and it’s kinda nice to not have to mess with other people for a change lol. I love the game so far, it really immerses you into the story and the voice acting is great. If I could complain about one thing it’s that I didn’t feel there were *enough* options in the character creation screen so I ended up with a rather boring looking character. I had hoped for some more options like piercings or more hair colors. But I’m a total girl when it comes to such things and I miss them when they aren’t there. Also, the helms in this game are ugly. I’d love to see a hide helm option so I didn’t have to keep taking them off between fights because I really, really can’t stand to see it on me. I went with rogue mostly because I wanted to play through the Human Noble start quests after seeing them briefly at my sister’s house. I would have preferred mage but you can’t be a noble if you choose mage. Maybe next time I play through I’ll choose an elven mage to change it up. Though really it doesn’t matter as you get to control a full party of different classes so I can play several different class types. If I can figure out why I only get maybe 1 out of every 10 screenshots I take I’ll post more as I progress!
