I think people have plenty of other places to find horned amazonian women on the internet. :P

As if I needed more twisted fantasies.

On the broader topic of bisexual characters, I'm sort of with Inkidu on this one. Sort of. But it's hard. I mean, if I found out Isabela was only interested in women, I'd be pretty disappointed. However, it does put a certain small strain on my suspension of disbelief if all of them are bisexual. In DA2's case, it works because none of the characters give any indication one way or another, except Aveline, and, well.

Though..Is there a reason why you never see a female Qunari? I can't remember if there is...

In Origins, Sten does comment on it if your character is female. He says something along the lines of being a warrior not being a role women are suited for, and they don't pick their own roles. Ahh, Sten, you dull man, you.

Well I finished Dragon Age 2 yesterday. The ending came sort of expected, I did connect the dots in a few places. However Anders blowing up the Chantry made me go WHAT THE FUCK?! I did however kill him for it, he had no right to kill those people, they were innocents, just because they couldn't stand with him, nor against the templars he decided to kill them. That said, I still stood with the mages against the right of annulment. Meredith had no right, especially after I had killed the one who caused the bloodshed in the end. Also what's with Orsinio turning into that thing, shit dude I'm trying to prevent further bloodshed. You are NOT helping, my 'perfect' ending (probably not gonna be in the game),  Kill Meredith, expose Idol (Cullen was there, he can vouch for the Templars), Orsinio preaches the peace, telling that why they fought was because of an offense they did not give + the cruelty of Meredith(Influenced by the Idol), the chantry + templars coming to a conclusion that these mages fought to be free and yet would go back to the Circle if it was instituted correctly. A.k.a. no more the Annulment Solution. However that didn't happen and Hawke became the rallying cry (which is the last thing I wanted) which caused the other circles to rise up against their Templar masters. Starting a Rogue/Male Hawke for my next game

PS. Can you romance Aveline instead of you-know-what-with-you-know-who ;)

I think you can. There are certain options during her really painful to watch quest where Hawke can interject his own petition for her affection.

Well, I finally started playing DA2 myself. Fem Rogue Hawke. Though I already know my next playthrough is going to be as a warrior, because all of the options for NPC warrior companions irritate the crap out of me.

I feel the same way about mages. My next play through I'm going to play a mage who sides with the templars. That's going to be fun.

You know, I'm kind of in the same boat there as well. Bethany is okay, cuz she is my sister and all, but the others? Haven't had much of a reason to take them around, despite the fact I normally took 2 mages in my party in DA:O. I got Bethany already, and I like Isabella's personality more than the other mages... so second rogue it is. Though I kinda wanna take Varric too, but there is no more room, cuz I still need a tank.

Do what I did, put the difficulty on casual and use a bit of.. 'tooling' to get the party strong enough that they'll be hard to go down.

Not really the best way, but it's effective at least. Plus you have the upside that you can take whoever you want.

No. Her trouble expressing feelings ... it works both ways. Or, rather, it works both ways during the aforementioned quest. I did read elsewhere that it's not possible, though.

Be careful. When building a tank in DA 2 you have to up the cunning stat instead of dexterity.

Cunning, "Raises the defense of all character classes"

Though tanks aren't that important as they used to be.

I looked into this, and if you're really going for the most effective approach, you're going to have to invest heavily into cunning. I think 2 points for every level or so. Statistically, going for Str/Con means you're slightly weaker against normal enemies, and somewhat stronger against bosses. Bottom line is this: you either invest heavily in cunning, or in constitution. If you end up in between, you're just going to ... suck.

Playing Homefront. Its like Modern Warfare, in that its a great big wankfest for Americans, but on a completely different emotional level... MW tries to be exciting and goes into action film territory, while Homefront is more like one of those bleak and depressing novels written about life in Jewish concentration camps.

Its a fun game, but I'm a bit torn at its tone... its the same "America, fuck yeah!" plotline, but treated with absolute seriousness.

I've been playing 2 hours and already I've seen parents shot in front of their children, civilians rounded up and executed, sometimes with suffocation bag things, forced labor camps, and bulldozers used to push mounds of bodies into mass graves, all accompanied by North Korean's screaming in the kind of guttural dialect you'd hear from axe murderers in rape hentai

I read that Homefront's single-player part was absurdly short, and that the mechanics weren't all that great.

In other words, exactly as I predicted the game would turn out.

The mechanics were bad? I'm not seeing it, its the same as every other shooter these days, which is functional. Aim down the sights, crouch, sprint, shoot, throw grenade. Even has the bullet time room breaching.

Sabby. The Entire story was written by the same guy who did Red Dawn.

Just finished what I can only assume is the last Bone Pit quest. Tedious. But also, rewarding.
