I honestly cried when I heard of the death of Robin Sachs (VA of Zaeed Massani), who made me fall in love with the character. My friends and I actually held a tiny memorial for him and all he’s done. If Bioware does ever continue Shepard’s story, it’ll hard to replace the brilliant voice of Sachs; truly he’ll be missed and his legacy through his works, especially Zaeed, will never be forgotten to me.

You ever stumble upon an old thing you said that was golden? Cause I did earlier today, in relation to Dragon Age. Post I made a couple years ago.

Me: Harrowmont’s a decent fellow but I wouldn’t trust him to lead the combined forces of peanut butter and jelly to attack the village of Toast.

I still stand by that.
