    Blackwall, eh? I was waiting for the final romance reveal. This means we have 4 straight, 2 bi, 2 homosexual options.

    I always knew Cullen was racist. No dwarves or Kossith? You humans are all racist!

    Though, I guess I'm in a minority here, but I never wanted to see Cullen again, in my original game he went insane and after killing two apprentices ran away through the swamps in his underclothes. But, what do you know, next time he's a Knight-Captain in one of the most important cities of Free Marches. Yeah, they accept lunatics, judging from their commander...

  • Personally I find DAII more interesting than DA:O. Of course it could be better (these locations...), but it's still good and uncomparable to ME3 which had terrible writing. >.>

  • ME3 had a terrible ending, along with some other things that bothered or annoyed me, but, overall, it wasn't much different from other games in the series.

    DA2, on the other hand, had so much problems, that I don't even want to start listing them, because I'd stay here all day. I still liked it, but, IMO, it is incomparable with DA:O.

  • Yeah, I don't like Cullen that much either, but appearently he has a big fanbase, so I guess that's why they included him in DA2 and DA:I as a love interest. And him being a racist, I think Kossith would probably crush Cullen, lol.

    And appearently some of the endings in Origins are not really canon. For example Anders remained with the Wardens in my playthrough, but we can see in DA 2 that's not true.

    But these things are not really bothering me - I'm still waiting for Leliana to explain her resurrection in one of my plays. :D

But these things are not really bothering me - I'm still waiting for Leliana to explain her resurrection in one of my plays. :D

    I'm fucking pissed off by both of these, especially by the last one. In 95% of my playthroughs Leliana was alive, and in half of those she was my love interest as well. But, gee, in remaining 5% percent she is more dead than Eddard Stark after his final meeting with Ilyn Payne. But, no, Bioware has to spit in my face and say "NOEP SHE IZ ALIEV, TEH POSSIBILITEH OF HER DEATH WAS PUT THERE BY MISTAKE/GOT RETCONNED!".

    Anders is another thing, he can die regardless of the player's choice... AND STILL SHOWS UP ALIVE! It can be plausibly explained why he is alive (in case if he is) and hiding from the Wardens/Templars if you didn't recruit him (which is, honestly, fucking stupid to do, hiding in the dark corners of a city that has 1/3 of all Templars in Free Marches. I may be exaggerating, but my point remains the same) in DA2, but he is just as retconned in case if he dies.

    As for Cullen, his fanbase consists of teenage girls, or girls no older than in their 20s, and some random dudes shudders. I never liked the fact that he was present in DA2, but his addition in DA3 makes me annoyed beyond measure.

    Well, to be fair Leliana was close to the Urn of Sacred Ashes when she died, maybe that had some impact on her resurrection? But then again, she can be killed only if you defile the ashes, so I dunno. I hope they'll adress it in Inquisition.

    And Anders can actually explain his death.

    Anders' death

    A bit. Still better than Leliana's explanation. :D

    Leliana

    That's worse than Kenny's "I got lucky, real lucky." :D

    Well, if I recall correctly, there are two different possibilities out of which he can die, but it seems the game acknowledges only one of them. And, even then, it's just an excuse for him to be present in Kirkwall. With a different VA, just because Greg Ellis has to play Cullen (urgh!). Not to mention how whiny and oppressed he became in DA2, once Jennifer Hepler wrote him. He's getting oppressed by the "patriar"- erm, sorry, that's different, the Chantry and Templars, while in Awakening, he wanted mages to be free, yes, but was way more passive about it. Yes, you can mention his merge with Justice, but even then he doesn't sound more righteous, just or anything else that Justice could give him, but whiny and oppressed.

    So, I didn't like Anders in DA2 at all. Not. One. Bit.

    Yeah, I hated DA2 Anders too, they completely destroyed him. I think they should've put there some other random mage who has Justice in him and they wouldn't have to deal with Anders' complete change of personality or his potentional deaths. But then no one would like him, lol. I think most of the players tolerate him just because he's Anders. :D

    And when can he die otherwise? I only know that you can hand him over to the templars (from whom he then escapes, I guess).

  • Anders from Awakening and Anders from DA2 are completely different, to the point where I think that they are different characters and Anders from DA2 is just a shoddy impersonator of Anders from Awakening. If his potential replacement was an interesting, well-written character, I would've liked him. Well, more than DA2 Anders, anyway.

    I looked it up, and yeah, I was wrong, he only "dies" the aforementioned way, arrow to the knee- neck, arrow to the neck.

    Your opinion on 2 definitely puts you in the minority.

  • Im quite curious about this series, I dont have a last gen system anymore but I do have PS4 and might buy this when it comes out. Since you all know the series do you mind explaining it to me?

  • It's too big to just explain, it must be played to have an understanding and/or an insight of the series.

  • Eh, I wouldn't mind different voice actor if he didn't change that drastically. But Greg Ellis as Anders was better, no argument here. :)

  • I wonder how Morrigan's child will be involved in Inquisition if you chose to do the old ritual.

  • also i wonder how your choice in witch hunt will affect it...

    So, anyone else planning on a Qunari Inquisitor? I've wanted to play one since Origins, and DA2 only made me want to more with the aesthetic redesign, so I nearly threw a fit when it was announced we could roll one in Inquisition.

    Female Qunari Warrior specifically for me. My Warden was a female Dalish rogue, Hawke was a male mage, and Inquisitor will be a female Qunari warrior, for the sake of class symmetry...and each protagonist being a head taller than the last. Heh.

  • Well, we know Hawke is. Warden would definitely be a trickier cameo as he/she is a much more player defined character, but you never know.

    I'm skeptical they'd get her right in my case.

  • I'll be probably playing as qunari male Tank Warrior, can't wait to see people's reaction on Qunari leading the Inquisition, lol. My previous characters on this save will be Warden male elf mage and Hawke male Archer, so I guess I have some weird synergy too, didn't even realize that. :D
