Loved it, and enjoy the layout of that site.

I think Mr. Levine has some awesome story telling skills and I think his recognition of SoM's "dynamic narrative" gives merit to it as a whole.

However, I think he says it best when he says, "Yes, these are baby steps toward realizing the kinds of stories that games can uniquely provide," because the systems in play are obvious to me. I see that it's randomly generated and that almost makes it less impact-full when I have my encounter with (insert orc name here.)

That's not to say it's not an awesome feat, but more that I think when the systems are laid bare - it's not as effective as a tailored narrative to me.

I would also love to see what Ken is working on; even more so now that this could even be tangentially related to it.

Still waiting on the PC patch, they've said it will come later this week.

@watchmen877: Word. I think he's a great addition to the team.

Bombcast. Bombcast. Bombcast.

Please come forth and shower me with your stories of spewing sewage, acid cum, and most importantly - THE GAMES.

I need voices in my head, I can only beat Inquisition on Nightmare if the crew is with me.

@legion_: I really enjoyed the show. The chat turned positive for a bit when Koji Kondo started, but quickly declined again when Imagine Dragons played their song.

Keighley did a great job, and props to everyone who was involved - they gave off a humble vibe and delivered some great stuff.

And no disrespect to anyone who is cynical in the chat, as we all have that side to us. Just don't let it get in the way of allowing yourself to enjoy stuff.

I personally didn't enjoy Sera either. I felt like it was an office in joke that made it into the game.

Once I got past Iron Bull's initial voice acting, (I felt like I could hear the the struggle to keep the "voice" going)

I really enjoyed him. Cassandra and Varric have the best moments for me, but that may play into my enjoyment of DA2.

Solas was initially very interesting because of his interest into the fade, but I ended up having a party that mostly consisted of Vivianne, Cassandra, and Iron bull.

I'm lvl. 23 right now and I might swap Varic for Iron bull.

Anyway, game is fucking great. It has obvious flaws but it's so damn good that it's easy to just blow them off.

I gave Cassandra the latest copy of her favorite series of books, I hope she liked it.

It would be so fucking rad to put Hawke in my party.

I don't know if it made it Stateside, but Icona Pop has a song called I Love It that has the worst verse / chorus switch.

verse

I crashed my car into the bridge...

chorus

I don't care!

It's in so many commercials, and understanding the lyrics, I can't help but think how stupid it is to crash your car and be so proud of it.

Holy shit I hate that song so god damn much.

I've been playing like a madman for around 50 ish hours and just hit level twenty. (not in one sitting)

I don't want to miss any story stuff so I've been taking the completionist route and have been trying to 100% zones before moving on.

I went Hinterlands, Forbiden Oasis, Fallow Mire,Val Royeaux, Storm Coast. I'm at the snowy place with the giant broken bridge now. Some zones can't be fully completed until later on as they require shards, war table quests, etc.

Dammit I really really really enjoy this game too.
