    I didn't get too much gaming done today! I'm busy putting together our new nerd room, ran errands, and did some chores around the house. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have a bit more time. But yesterday I was able to finish up with most of the Brecilian Forest, Alistair finally gave me his personal quest, and Zevran and I did the business. But things seem to be easy come, easy go with him, so I'm not sure how that romance is going to continue. Starting to think I should have just followed my first instinct and romanced Alistair again!!!

    Sorry, Andi!

    I'm kind of an obsessive personality but I didn't know it was contagious.
    Yeah, you should see his organizational skills when it comes to running tournaments.

    Or his Netflix updates.

    Or his compilation of the Oscar tournament statistics.

He just happened to pass by the opening of a door and I caught a brief glimpse of him in the dark. It was terrifying.

    The business, she says so businesslike!

    Didn't get any gaming done today either, but this weekend I'm hoping to get quite a bit of it done. I also have Alistair's quest but haven't found his sister. I guess she'll show up later in Denerim. And I'm pretty iffy on Zevran. He tried to kill me and weaseled his way out of it. I haven't been taking him as my companion so I guess I haven't really gotten used to him. For now I'm sticking with Leliana, Morrigan, and Wynne, but sometimes I'll swap Alistair for Morrigan.

    Also, in case you're looking for more dialogue between party members, I have found a great place to trigger it!

    So, when you get to Orzammar, when you first enter, there is a large room with several dwarves standing around looking at statues, and as you near the far wall, it causes a dialogue to trigger. if you turn around, go back outside, and go back in, it triggers again in the same spot. And if you want, you can change your party just outside as well, so you can trigger a whole shit ton of dialogue, rearrange your party, and do it all over again! If you want...

    I've been doing it for about an hour now. lol

    Brilliant! Thanks for the tip. That banter between the various party members is some of the best writing and voice acting the the game.

    Leliana's shoe obsession is really adorable, and she's talked about shoes with Morrigan a few times. It makes me laugh out loud. And one time were were in some building and she goes "Ooh a glass slipper!" But I couldn't find it...

    So after three hours of triggering dialogue yesterday, I think I have exhausted all of Wynne, Sten, Alistair, and Shale's options with all available party members.

    What have I learned? Whatever you do, make sure you take the time to trigger all of Sten and Morrigan's options. It's *totally* worth it.

    Also, there is a strange little connection between Sten and Shale that made me go awwwwe. :-)

    I'll need to do that once I go to Orzammar. For now I finished the Indiana Jones-like urn quest which was really cool. Loved the whole Last Crusade feel toward the end! The Guardian was a very cool character and a such a well-written conversation and then the trials (had to look up the bridge puzzle, I suck at these). Lots of fun. Now I've made it to the Dalish finally, and first thing, what do you know, young love I'm such a hopeless romantic... Of course Morrigan, the ice queen, gets all bitchy and gives me negative 5 approval for getting them together. But we're still good

    Stopped for now somewhere in the forest. Pretty wild place. But I've significantly upgraded my characters now and Morrigan specifically (yay death magic!) that we can deal with these more powerful and plentiful enemies fairly quickly. According to stats I'm about 30% done with the game at 60 hours. That's crazy. This game is huge and there is so much to do. How did they do it?

    P.S.: I like to research quests and encounters I've completed to see what I missed since I don't know when I'll get to replay the game, and was sort of astonished to find out I could have had a threesome with Isabela and Leliana at The Pearl. And it carries over to the next game, apparently. That would have been... interesting. Leliana is so not an innocent little cloister sister! This game is naughty!

    I think you can technically have a foursome with Isabella, Leliana, and Zevran if you've played all your cards right. And yup, it all carries over although Isebella gets a serious upgrade in Dragon Age 2. She looks like she's got scurvy (pirate joke, HA!) in Origins.

    I love the Brecilian Forest. Such an awesome quest line, I think it's easily my favorite in all of Origins. Orzammar is drab and boring in comparison!

    I can see why you like it so much, the forest is really weird. But such a well done place design-wise. I love this game's overall look, it's really beautiful especially for an older game. Loved the rhyming oak, the hallas are so cute, the hermit was funny but creepy, the werewolves were actually pretty interesting creatures. And Danyla's story was super sad

    Back in Denerim, Alistair finally found his sister. We went in and she went off on him right away. I tried to be supportive of him and her both, trying to reconcile the estranged siblings, but in the end she bitched and bitched, Alistair gave her some money to calm her down, and we left. Outside he thanked me for having his back and I said "We're in this together, bro" or something, and that was that. Really unexpected turn of events. What a bitch she was... but I can also see it from her viewpoint. Alistair promised to take care of her and the kids once he's king. (He's like "Thanks for reminding me....")

    Working my way thru the remastered, redone, port, or whatever the kids are calling it these days of Resident Evil on PS4. The first game I ever played on PS1. Man, I can't believe it's been 20 years since the release of that console! Lot of hours I'll never get back LOL.

    It has that rare honor of being called 'one of the most influential games ever made'.

    Its up there with the likes of Mario, Zelda and GTA

    I got the remastered Resident Evil when PS network was offering it as a freebie of the month...

    And it still makes me scream out loud, even after all this time!

    EDIT: As previously discussed, my poor girlie heart doesn't do well with anything even remotely horror based in games. I played five minutes of Outlast and was like NOPENOPENOPE

    Try to get to RE4. It marks the rebirth of the series from horror-survival to TPS-horror. Another RE game that can lay claim to pioneering a genre.

    Haven't played Outlast but I've seen videos. FP-horror games are fucking nuts.

    I think itís because itís a mainly a PS game and I play only on the PC. Itís killing me that I canít play stuff like The Last Of Us or Horizon Zero Dawn, and I donít understand why there are no PC versions. So any PS games usually pass me by.

    Wait, you missed out on The Last of Us, one of the greatest games ever made? The Uncharted series? Holy shit that's sad.

    Such is the way with consoles. Unless you're willing to drop a ton of cash to make sure you have every system, there is always going to be something you miss out on.

    It broke my heart that I couldn't play the last Gears of War game because I don't have an Xbone. :-(

    Yeah

    What are you playing now? Did you ever play Dragon Age? It's awesome. Or does what Andi and I are talking about sound blah? Also, I hope we're not being too spoilery.

    Well tbh, I've been skipping through all your posts LOL.

    I haven't played Dragon Age.. kind of intimidated by the thought of dropping 100+ hours on another RPG these days. Those things take over my life, man. Right now I'm mostly focusing on short & sweet single player campaigns.
