They were doing so well getting the episodes uploaded on time compared to Mass Alex 1 & 2 too, what a shame.

When Shao Kahn is defeated and fails to merge his realm with ours, he explodes.

When Kukri is defeated and fails to merge his realm with ours, he has a dance scene apparently inspired by Bayonetta, Deadly Premonition and (ironically) Kabal from MK.

@flstyle: I've been avoiding that option for a long time, but it may honestly be the best way to handle it this long after the fact. Thanks for the reminder, I think I'll actually just go with that and keep my interest for the next installment while hoping they fix the issues from the last one.

Have fun!

@flstyle: Who cares, Ben wants to play it and thinks it will make him understand the series/4 more. Whether it does or not truly is a moot point when its What he thinks. Don’t have to understand or agree, just know it’s how he feels. It may not help but it’s part of the DA story and glad he’s intrigued. DA hasn’t got much play on site in a while. I do agree with the Sonic 4 example of Ryan but it’s a world where they have more content to put out. I could also see him completing all of them before 4 is even out.

ehhh You haven't made a whole bunch of sense there, but I don't feel the need to cruelly deconstruct what you've written either, so I'm going to leave you be. Have a nice day.

@flstyle: I've been trying to do the Trespasser DLC at least twice a year since it came out, but every time I go back to DA:I I'm able to play long enough to get used to the combat again and then...can't do it anymore. There's something about the game that I enjoyed well enough to see the main story through, particularly some of the companions and their party specific banter, but I've basically given up on ever enjoying it again and finishing the DLC.

In that case I recommend typing in Dragon Age Trespasser DLC ending into YouTube and picking the player character that most resembles your Inquisitor, it's a remarkable 25 minutes revealing the truth of the world of Thedas. I'd be happy to explain anything if you have questions.

This is all moot at this point now that I think about it, BioWare is a very different company from 15 years ago and is not only forced to bend to the greedy, multiplayer whims of EA, but the majority of staff that made Dragon Age what it was have left. And despite Ben's good intentions for playing Origins in case of playing future Dragon Age titles, it's like Ryan's Sonic the Hedgehog 4 rant back in the day, Dragon Age will never be what it was. So fuck it, I'm going to try and enjoy Ben's playthrough of Origins on its own merit.

I've left the reply I had originally typed out below.

@flstyle: Considering how little we've seen of DA4 and the current state of Bioware/EA, Ben has enough time to play all three games at a leisurely pace before DA4 is even given a rough release date.

I'd argue that playing DA:I without playing the previous two games makes less sense. DA:I builds heavily from DA2 (the game even hints that you were originally supposed to play as Hawke from DA2), and a large number of the main cast are from earlier DA games. On top of that, neither DA2 or DA:I spend a lot of time going over the lore and the politics of Thedas compared to DA1.

The only understanding of the world of Thedas you need is from Inquisition and its Trespasser DLC, or did you forget that by the time the credits rolls on Trespasser the entire lore of Dragon Age as told by 1 and 2 is revealed to be utter nonsense, misinformation and lies by Solas?

I doubt this will turn out to be Giant Bomb's Dragon Age version of Mass Alex but if in three years time DA4 is unreleased and Ben has successfully played all the way through Origins, 2 and Inquisition I will gladly admit being wrong.

Playing this because of Dragon Age 4 being in the works makes zero sense.

I will preach to the world that Dragon Age: Origins is one of the best video games of all time. But if you want to know what's going on in DA4 then Dragon Age: Inquisition (which is comparably good, but not great) and then Inquisition's Trepasser DLC is the way to go.

If you go DAO to DA4 you won't know what's going on.

Holy shit I can't believe Alex and Vinny stumbled into bringing Javik to Thessia, that is THE mission that everyone said Javik shouldn't have been DLC. Thank goodness for that.

Unfortunately, in true Mass Alex fashion, Alex and Vinny missed a bunch of lore drops that revealed that the Protheans raised up the Asari like the Salarians raised up the Krogan. The gods that Asari history claims they worshipped were just the Protheans.

Again, pay attention to your surroundings Alex.

The lesser known Giant Bomb shows from the Whiskey Media era where they play MMOs on the day they are shut down, especially an extended run like Not Like This, really deserve some spotlight. I'm definitely voting for them if I see them pop up on Infinite.
