CONFESSION: 

This might be an unpopular opinion but a lot of people don’t like Anders in Dragon Age 2 but might still like Awakening Anders. I’ve seen them blame Anders himself for the change in character and talk about what’s went on with him as if it’s his fault, but the way I see it, is that it’s almost completely and utterly Justice’s fault. Justice being exposed to the real world over time caused him to corrupt into vengeance and as much as Anders had good intentions, it wasn’t his fault at all.            

Sometimes, when I re-play DA:I, I weep over what could have been:

Instead, we got this Egg looking motherfucker who totally isn’t suspicious in any way.

I would have rather been blinded by that wolfish looking god than his shiny ass head. Not to say I don’t love Solas, I’ve romance him more times than I’m wiling to admit, but look at the missed opportunity. Look me in the eyes and tell me you wouldn’t have preferred that tall glass of water, taking the meaning of ‘dread’ wolf way too literal, over the man who was just seeping ‘I’m totes not evil, I promise’.

I just…I mean…WHY?

(I mean no offense to bald people. Really, but you have to admit, the concept art was just the bomb)

CONFESSION:  

The more I play these games, the more my parents want to ban it from me. My dad (a strict catholic) has this tendency to watch me play DA I and has called it “the devil’s work” for two things: 1- Three of the demons have deadly sin names (Rage, Sloth and Envy) and 2- There’s a weapon called The Morning Star which is another name for Satan. I like to believe he’s joking but it’s still worrying because what must he think of me?

  • me playing older bioware games: Why do my companions always stay in the same room all the time I wish they'd go visit each other.
  • me playing Andromeda: Where the hell are my companions now why aren’t they where I left them how dare you socialise without me

Not a complete list at all but quite a few voice actors and actresses who cross over from Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, and Dragon Age. (list does not include The Old Republic, as I’ve not played that one)
