    Don't think it's a reboot, just a remastering of the original title with current gaming technology. They might add a few extras like collectibles and trophies.

    I don't mind it one bit. The original game is one of my all time favorite gaming experiences, reliving it with optimal graphics and mechanics sounds awesome.

    I can't wait for the remastered Shadow of the Colossus! I never did play the first one, but my husband assures me that I'll love it and usually he's not wrong when it comes to my taste in video games.

    I've heard the same from folks who played the original.

    I did something really stupid when I started with the Dragon Age series....

    I actually missed all of the games on their initial release. I used to be a fairly hardcore WoW player so all my free gaming time went into that. But in the past couple of years, I moved away from MMOs and have concentrated solely on console/computer single and coop player games. So, when Dragon Age Inquisition released, I was all like, omg, I think I will really like that game! I should try it! So I did, and had NO IDEA that it is directly related to the other games in the series and chronologically ordered 1-3. So I picked up Inquisition, absolutely LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT, finished it, and then started looking into the other games. That's when I found out all kinds of crazy connections, and went back to Origins to start from the beginning. Needless to say, I spoiled a ton of stuff by doing things out of order, but it was still awesome to go back and play them in order. It's amazing how vast the story is for Dragon Age and how well the games connect through the Dragon's Keep.

    Luckily, you can play those games through multiple times and still see/hear/do things entirely different than the first (couple) play throughs. And this will be only my second play through of Origins. So it should be fun!!!!

    Let me know when you start, maybe we'll end up playing the same quests around the same time, and it would be cool to compare stats

    Indeed. I have played through a couple times now, but just finished up what I considered to be my paragon definitive head canon play through.

    I am not ashamed to admit that I basically cry during the entire last mission. Doesn't matter how many times I have done it. /tear

    If you enjoy the Dragon Age games, I highly recommend Mass Effect. It's basically the same thing, except in space, with aliens and guns. Mass Effect 2 is one of my favorite video games *ever*.

    EDIT: OH! and Pablo, I just wanted to say, that if you are interested in Loghain's backstory (and Maric, King Cailan's father), I recommend the book "The Stolen Throne" by David Gaider. It's very well written and gives you an entirely different view of someone who is see as villainous in Origins. I have read all of Gaider's DA books and they are great companions to the games. Makes me sad, since he has since left Bioware and won't be contributing to Dragon Age IV when the time comes. :-(

    So I totally didn't play any Origins today. Instead I got caught up playing Call of Duty World War II. First boots on the ground CoD game in awhile and I'm freaking out by how much I'm enjoying playing. lol

    I did the first two DLCs after Lothering, The Stone Prisoner (got Shale) and Solder's Peak (got the party storage chest) , and now started the Circle Tower main quest. And now I've got an all-girl party with Morrigan, Leliana, Wynne, and myself Very cool so far!

    Alright, so I finished up with Call of Duty WWII campaign, and tomorrow is N7 day (hopefully Bioware announces something fun, but I kinda doubt it) and my Horizon Zero Dawn expansion is released! WOOOOOOOO

    But I swear, I'm gonna play some Origins in between all of that jazz!

    I'm replaying the Bioshock collection (includes 1, 2, & Infinite).

    I can't put into words how much I love Infinite. Probably in my top 10 favorite games of all time. Perfect marriage of art design, theme, narrative.

    I 100%'d it on PS3, and I'm planning on doing the same for the PS4. I already passed it on 1999 (Very Hard) mode, and am doing one final clean-up playthrough to get those remaining trophies. After I finish the campaign this next time I would have played it through at least a dozen times, not kidding.

    I need to play Bioshock, but the first time I ever tried playing the first game on computer, I couldn't handle the atmospheric horror aspect of the game. It's dark, you gotta sit right up close to your monitor to see anything, and you're constantly hearing the little sisters laughing somewhere in the dark. It seriously unnerved me. I keep telling myself that if I were to play it on the Playstation instead, I'd be better off, but I don't know. There is just something under-your-skin creepy about that game that I just couldn't shake and therefore couldn't finish.

    I'm a total weenie, I know, but seriously. FARGIN' SCARY

    It's been a while but I don't recall Bioshock Infinite being all that creepy. It was a very good game, indeed.

    The first Bioshock was definitely creepy. That sense of dread exacerbated by the claustrophobic underwater setting.

    Infinite trades in the eerie factor for a heavier sci-fi framework used to explore themes of jingoism, fate and redemption. It's also much more refined - mechanically speaking - than its predecessors.

    All 3 together form a compelling trilogy of Ayn Rand'ish proportions. Yes, even the ill-maligned Bioshock 2 which did a few things better than the original. Can't say enough about em.

    The Bioshock franchise is easily one of my favorite video game franchises ever. I just bought a Rapture t-shirt the other day. The first two games are just amazing. The atmosphere created is like nothing I've ever seen. It truly feels like you are in this living, breathing underwater society. The crazy thing about Bioshock is how they did a complete 180 and still were able to keep the vibe of the franchise the same. When I heard about Infinite, I thought it was a mistake. I could not have been more wrong.

    Infinite is a visually breath-taking game that features one of the biggest head trip experiences you will find in a video game. It's a shame that Irrational Games folded, leaving the franchise in limbo.

    We've talked about this before, but you're my hero for going for Bioshock plats. Not an easy feat.

    That's what makes the first 2 games so unbelievable! They really are unsettling games. That said, you should jump into Infinite then. It's bright and features open environments, yet it still feels like Bioshock.

    Here are a few of my friends by the way:

    Oh, I almost forgot. I wanted to share one of my favorite parts of Infinite. I remember stumbling upon this. You find little things like this throughout the game and it just makes the experience that much more special.

    These kinda details are what make Infinite such a unique experience.

    What about the "Will the circle be unbroken?" guitar bit.

    I'm not gonna watch the video, to avoid any possible spoilers. Cause I'm a psycho about that.

    And I tell you what....when Duncan looks to see that the tower is lit at Ostagar and realizes that help isn't coming....it's like when William Wallace finds out Robert the Bruce betrayed him.
    I'M NOT CRYING YOU'RE CRYING!!!

    So you went with a mage this time, Andi? For myself, I'm done with the Circle Tower (was a bit annoyed about The Fade at first but actually loved it by the end), and from what I've gleaned a mage origin contains some Fade action.

    Now I have decided to pause the main quest and do Leliana's Song, since mine and Leliana's relationship seems to be moving in a very warm direction and I'm about halfway through the DLC I guess... Love Leliana and her cute accent
