@yummylee: Yeah, that specialization was a blast to play too. I hope they bring it back. Also Mark Laidlaw confirmed on Twitter that he's a Rogue so mystery solved. I'm pretty sure I'm using Cole now, because a Rogue Mage sounds awesome. Now they just need to make some sort of Rogue Warrior and I'll be set.

If I had to guess I'd assume he'll resemble Fenris from DA2 a bit, who had those weird sorta-magicky abilities that were kinda incorporated into his unique skills, but he still fundamentally played like a Warrior. I doubt they'll give a Rogue actual magic spells.

Yeah that's what I was imagining too, but that would still be totally rad.

If any class is maybe a little over-represented it's the Mage, as there's four of them! Though of course Mages are probably the most versatile class, and since Mages factor so heavily in the premise of the story, it makes sense that they'd want to insert a lot of opposing opinions into the Inquisition. One's a circle mage, one's an apostate, one's an abomination, and one hails from the Tevinter Imperium so, they all have very different backgrounds and ideologies no doubt.

I believe Cole is a rogue actually. Of the stabby variety.

Wait, really?... So you're right! That's weird, considering he's also like a... spirit or abomination or something. Cool, good to know. I think I'm already envisioning my party anywhoo, with me as a dwarven tank, Sera, Cole, and whichever of the mages specialises in healing. Probably Solas if I had to make a guess.

Hmm. Now I'm not sure. They posted this image on the official Facebook for Dragon Age, but apparently he's a mage in his previous appearance. So either the Facebook page goofed, or his class is a rogue despite the fact that he's a mage narratively. I guess there's nothing stopping a mage from learning to pick locks and use daggers, and it could lead to a cool unique skill tree where he combines these talents, if that's the case.

I didn't play Warcraft for a very long time in the grand scheme of things, and I never got into it as bad as most people, but watching that video was giving me some nostalgia that made me want to pop back in just to check up on it. I probably will after that expansion comes out and my chick looks cooler.

I definitely agree with the first point. There's this part where it seems like a character is dead in one of the Marvel movies recently and it was really difficult to take it seriously because I knew the actor was on the hook for several more movies. It nullified a lot of the emotion I was supposed to feel for that element of the story.

Patrick has been known to enjoy games that are really difficult. I think mentioning difficulty in a review is always tricky, because everyone's bound to have a different level of skill.

Bioshock 2 is an awesome game. It's only sin is being the sequel to one of the most beloved games of the last generation.

Most of my music is video game related. Not because I think it's better, but because I don't have the patience to search for music as an activity so I usually discover music I like through games or movies or tv shows or whatever. I've tried using Pandora to find more stuff, but its terrible for my purpose. Try plugging a video game composer you like into there and it basically goes "Oh you like nerd shit." and starts playing stuff whose only relation is the fact that it's also from video games.

I'm so eager to get some news that their silence is getting pretty frustrating to me. TGS is so long from now! I really hope it's the August Famitsu, I don't need much, just gimme something!
