Dragon Age II

WARNING : You will likely not understand any of this post if you have not played Dragon Age.

Well, I got Dragon Age II the day it came out and it ate my life but I knew it was going to.

My overall feeling on the game was super happy fun feelings. The storyline was very different to Dragon Age Origins which isn't a bad thing. Dragon Age Origins was the epic story dealing with an end of world scenario crossing the massive country of Ferelden. It was a story of kings, queens, betrayal and an epic battle against the Arch Demon.

Dragon Age II is more the story of a single person rising up from nothing to become the hero of Kirkwall and help change the world more than the Blight ever did. It looks like it'll be the biggest change since Andraste marched upon the Tevinter Imperium and created the chantry.

I am very intrigued to see what they come up with for the downloadable content.

The combat system I haven't fully explored yet but the mage combat has much improved. I can actually whack stuff with my staff and the levelling up system is much easier to work out too. I also enjoy the fully voiced character :D

Now, excuse me while I go play a new Dragon Age game as a rogue.

Yeah, So, schedules...

My Monday - Wed - Friday posting schedule was supposed to be simple but with things like decorating and Darksiders getting in the way it's not really surprising I lagged. (I often do).

So, in fantastical news, Dragon Age 2 should be with me tomorrow, I thought I best do a blog post before it gets here and no one hears from me for about 3 months while I dissect the entire game and figure out all the little interesting side quests and pretty stuff.

My blog post today is more art but it's very much a work in progress, it's my cat comic! Or at least the beginnings of the first page (I have another couple done but this is the one i'm refining right now)

Click to enlarge!

Just noting, this current part of the comic is set in my other half's house. Our cats live with her in America, I kind of plan on showing our stories through the eyes of our cats. Also, the comic won't be blue, I will be colouring it in proper colours like my last post, but obviously that will take time. :D

I hope to have a coloured page to post next time, just this one page though, don't want to post too much here of it.
