Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and above all, pity those who will go see “The Battle of the Five Armies” without having read the book and thinking it will all be fine.

I feel like this was a part of Pepper’s job description and she’s just kept it going.

Q&A in Rio [x]

Peter Capaldi, I love you and I am your people because I knew exactly who you were talking about. I love his smug look too. :D

Ugh. So meh about today’s DAI announcement. Why does there have to be multiplayer or mmos added to everything? It’s like some sort of scrofulous disease that’s slowly infecting all the good single player games. Dragon Age did not need multiplayer. Really, it didn’t. It was awesomely awesome all on it’s own.

Mind you, I have no idea how all these people are going to have time to play MP! I have 4 playthroughs earmarked already and that’s solely based off different Inquisitors I want to play (Female Human S&B Warrior romancing Cullen, Male Human Dual Wield Rogue romancing Dorian, Female Qunari Mage… who will possibly Ride The Bull!!!, Female Elven Archer Rogue for Solas depending on whether he’s a LI or not… mmm, Gareth David-Lloyd!) and that doesn’t even take into account any major decision points or anything like that which may prompt extra playthroughs to see what happens when taking a different direction.

Given that’s there’s about 200 hours of content and I’m a bit of a completionist, I’m looking at 800 hours right off the bat and I’m likely to add in more playthroughs because the urge to play a dwarf Inquisitor who Rides The Bull!!!! :D has never really gone away. So that’s knocking it up to a minimum of nearly 1000 hours of gameplay in the main game alone. Even if I was interested in MP, when would I have time to play it??? I’m going to be too busy playing the main game in the hours I have available for gaming! Do these people just not work or something?

Oh and for anyone who says you couldn’t do a 1000 hours in any game? I’m up to about 1200 hours in Skyrim and I still haven’t done and found everything. Just last night I found a new cave that I hadn’t ever found before. It was great!


Anonymous said: I remember the days when games were about worlds you could explore and about being good, and not about who's got representation and gender this and sexuality that. I miss those days.

dgaider:

Those days miss you, too. I recently found a yellowed letter under one of the floorboards, and it was addressed to you and signed by those days with a tear-stained kiss of lipstick.

Meanwhile, in the present, those of us who work in the industry and who are—amazingly—able to consider more than one idea at the same time, will continue to create good games about worlds you can explore AND occasionally talk about inclusivity.

If you are feeling compassion fatigue, I think it might be okay to sit out those discussions, at least until you get your strength back. While it will be tough not having you available for close consultation, somehow we will soldier on.

Gaider’s sass was strong in this one.
