I had every intention to do an update about the Video Game BAFTA’s after they were on the other night. Unfortunately I have been stricken with an evil cold and have only had time to lie in bed and spend some quality time with my Xbox 360, and it’s all a little bit late now as I don’t doubt you have all seen the questionable winners and losers. I say unfortunately, but it has allowed me to get rather deep into Dragon Age 2, twice, with a third jaunt through Kirkwall hopefully happening next week assuming of course work and life doesn’t get in the way.
I’ve seen a lot of people having a bit of a whinge about how DA2 isn’t as good as DAO. I appear to be the only one who’s actually really enjoyed it! Even GamesTM, my favourite gaming magazine, only gave it a shoddy 6 out of 10. I should have my review up on TIMJ very soon though, so I will have my say.
I will say one thing quickly now though. I have really enjoyed the character development this time around. I won’t lie, i’ve whored my character out a little bit purely because I enjoy playing around with the game to see what it will do if I try and sleep with 4 people at once. It’s coped rather well!
My first conquest as a rogue was the rather broody Fenris. What can I say? I must have a thing for elves because Zhevran was the only character I cosied up to in DAO. I have also just wooed Anders (The Alistair equivalent in my eyes) as a warrior, so now all I need to do i woo Sebastien as a mage unless I feel like confusing Avelines sexuality or catching something nasty off Isabella.
What does everyone else think?
