    It is really impressive how they managed to make exploring such pretty locations utterly soul crushing by the end of the game. They all looked like places that would be fun to explore. Most were not.

    You know, looking at the dragon fight in Inquisition it's almost impossible to tell the bulk of that game's development happened after the release of Dragon's Dogma.

    I always got the feeling that people who hate Sera probably don't have siblings.
    She acts exactly like an annoying sister. If that was their intent, then it was done well.

    It's not the main character's sister, that's the problem. Which means she's just a retard

    I find it even more funny that she is supposed to be the lesbian romance and every lesbian and bisexual woman that I've talked with told me, how much they hated Sera ... because she reminded them of their exes :D.

    80% of the characters were romancable and Varric still wasn't one of them. Why do you even bother, Bioware.

    Uh, no, I wasn't. So Gaider thinks people with dwarfism don't deserve equal rights?

    lmao fuck short people

    also, the dwarf female scout you can flirt with also isn't romanceable. IIRC, gaider said he wasn't comfortable with it or something(but was entirely OK with the iron bull shit)

    I only care for romanceable Dwarves for when I play a Dwarven PC. Alas, they didn't even include that (even though they had no problem with designing Solas as a romance option exclusive to an Elven PC).

    Varric's manliness shouldn't be race-restricted, it should be enjoyed by all.

    It seems to me that all of BioWare's problems stemmed from a conflict between the writers (the elite and superstars of this company) and the rest of the developers.
    It seems that the writers advocated a variety of plot options, while the rest advocated a variety of gameplay. After all, they are not making interactive films or visual novels. As a result, the writers were kicked out, and freedom was given to young developers who would be free from the "harmful influence" of the writers.
    Here I can say for sure why these young developers ruined everything. When you have many plans, the most valuable thing is not the implementation of these plans, but how much you moderate your enthusiasm and how many mechanics you cut out. Simplification becomes value, not variety. This simplification has come down to trivial savings in time and money. It seems this black actor has made facial expressions and movements for all the characters in the latest Mass Effect.
    The gameplay of the original BioWare masterpieces was already not very good, but it was compensated by an interesting scenario. When the writers were repressed, we got very average stories, which are just a dancer for average gameplay.

    I totally agree with the elf fag dev! What kind of a sick and demented degenerate subhuman would want to have a romance with a disgusting jew Dwarf.

    Definitely some self loathing there. Most men are hairy, so Gaider likely is a big time bodyshamer demanding his males be slim twinks or shaved beefcakes. Sad!

    Really like Patrick Weekes work (the guy was responsible for the best meta plot of Mass Effect, the genophage stuff) and he is the main writer of this thing after Gaider left, he wrote the DLC I think, the basic gameplay seems garbage MMO and a waste of time but people say the DLC are good. Is this worthy playing for the DLC? I mean, you can apply a -50% experience mod, a mod that increases the zoom on the tactical camera and there is a mod that unlocks the difficulty exclusive to multiplayer with the Ai unlocking all kinds of abilities that it doesnt use on the single player version. Is this worthy paying a visit to fit girl and waste time with mods to play the DLC?

    I believe that was designer's intent but he always seemed more like a gigolo to me for some reason
    There is Blackwall but whatever
    Be grateful there are no manbuns. Yet.

    manly? that silk-clad beardless dude who prefers a crossbow over an axe?
    Varric is basically a dwarven Azis Mrazish.

    I can answer you about this one. It is indeed helps you to postpone level cap. But it is broken somehow. I played with it plus equal level enemies. After lvl 7 or so i begun to get higher level drop as if i was supposed to be that level. Getting lvl 12-13 gear while being lvl 9 for example. It wasn't rewarding.

    Men with defined jawlines don't need to rely on beards. Some guys aren't so lucky.

    I don't know who that is, and I wonder why you do.
