Avengers! Good guys win, calling it now!
Yeah, I should be doing my term paper. Not happening xD.
I have high hopes for Dragon Age 3. I want it to be more like Origins, with some of the gameplay elements they put in Dragon Age 2 such as the dialogue wheel and the companion rivalry bar instead of the strict Good/Evil dynamic of most role playing games.

I can't remember any other movies I've watched recently... I don't really watch movies, though I'm going to see the Avengers soon. :D The Hunger Games doesn't count because I'd read the books and knew what was going to happen before.
I did, but I'm redeeming myself in this playthrough, which I have totally just earned after getting 1700 words down in four hours (including referencing).
I find warriors boring. xD Mages are fun and can be the highest damage dealers in the game, but my favourite class is rogues. I love playing as rogue Hawke, the Assassinate skill is AMAZING. I was OHKO-ing ogres if I got lucky~ I preferred Anders in Awakening. When I was playing 2, I was like "What happened to your personality? You were funny and I would have romanced you!!" But I know what you mean, a little. Isabella makes me feel as if I'd catch a disease if I so much as shook her hand, and Merril is a little too meek for my tastes. Fenris is awesome (same voice as Balthier in FF12, my favourite Final Fantasy) and Anders... Yeah... We don't have the DLC for the other romance option for female characters. Hopefully Dragon Age 3 will be kinder.

I never saw the ending to Inception :/ Megamind, I somewhat saw coming but I decided just to enjoy the movie :3
So you friend-zoned Garrus. That's cruel....
I only play warriors. Mages are too complicated (and die easily) and rogues...meh. Make better back ups to me. I liked Anders. Didn't romance him though. To be honest all the romance options in DA2 were unappealing.

I guessed the ending of Inception pretty accurately... And Megamind too! >8D (Okay, the latter is a kids' film so yeah.)
... Because Thane's son is voiced by Axel. Nah, I'm joking. Garrus seemed too buddy-buddy with my Shep, rather than a romance option.
I've played Human Noble and City Elf, both as rogues (bard/assassin and duelist/assassin). I've played the Mage origin so many times, but never completed the game with one... My current mage hates Alistair, it's pretty funny. And yeah, I was hoping more things affected stuff in DA2, but it was small things like a cutscene involving an elf and a human who used to be a werewolf if you saved them (my human noble had the werewolves slaughter the elves), and you could start a fight or solve their problem. Anders annoyed me at the end though, but to be fair I did lead him on and then run off with Fenris. XD;;;;

Well, that is what we call cliches. They happen all the time xD
Thane has an epic voice. But how can you no want Garrus? ;D
I have have played Human noble and Dwarf noble. I did one of the elves origins, but ended up dropping the character out of boredom since I realized I pretty much did everything with my second Human noble. Yes, I played the character twice to get my perfect ending for Dragon Age 2 only to see that it didn't really matter.

I'll sit there and watch films, then realise how things are going to end/ certain plot twists because I'm now aware of techniques that writers employ. A lot of people like to put in stuff earlier on in a film, it really annoys my boyfriend when I'm like: Yeah, I saw that coming. xD
I just feel whenever I have a conversation with him our opinions differ. Good thing I had high Paragon to ease him when dealing with Doctor Heart. I'm planning on romancing him in Mass Effect 2; I almost did in my first play through but omg Thane. <3
Sometimes I wonder what would happen if I rejected everyone in my party in Dragon Age/ told them to leave, then I realise I'd be left with Alistair and the Dog. Maybe Ohgren too, but I don't usually speak to him too much seeing as I like doing Orzammar last. Or end up doing it last. Dwarf Noble Origin is interesting though, haven't played Commoner yet.

Oh. I had a similar experience when I took a film class and we learned film techniques like camera cuts and such. It hasn't ruined my movie watching experience by any means. My experience in literature has, however, since I analyze movies like I do with books.
Wrex? Yes. Garrus? Not at all. I was paragon and Garrus and I were the best of friends. He isn't that renegade. He is more in the middle than anything else, especially in Mass Effect 1. He is more renegade in 2 and then is back in the middle in 3.
And no leaves my party, since I always max out charm ;D

True~ Whenever I have to do a literary related module I'm like "But my degree is creative writing, not reading!". I guess it helps me to have more of a critical mind when I read stuff. Thanks to screenwriting I can no longer sit and watch a movie without analysing something along the way. x_X
Why does that not surprise me? I love playing Renegade. 83 It's so cool to just be in a conversation and then have that option to shoot someone mid-sentence. Also it's a little awkward playing Paragon when you have Garrus and Wrex in your party. If Mass Effect had a companion friendship system like Dragon Age does, they probably would have left by now.

My entire curriculum has been literary theory in some way or another, so I guess I am used to it xD
I am always Paragon. I never play evil really :/ I guess I should one day.
April 26th, 2012 7:28 AMRokusasu
Ewwww, you think literary theory could be fun, get out of here. XD
I'm playing it right now... Or I was up until last night, now I have to buckle down and get at least 500 words done today. Managed to get everything up to Virmire done, loving my team of Sentinel FemShep, Garrus and Wrex, even if Paragon playthroughs mean you don't kill as many people. I'm evil when I play games. EVIL.

Literary theory seems like it could be fun, but writing a story or so seems like it could be epic!
I need to re-play the first game. I hope my friend lets me borrow it after the semester ends.
I KNOW RITE?

If you're an English student you have to do a study on a literary theory or author, but if you have 'Creative Writing' anywhere in your degree name then you can do like a story or a playscript etc..
MASS EFFECT. MAAAAAASS EFFEEEEEEEEECT. (Though my boyfriend is on his computer right now, sadly my laptop can't handle ME without incredible amounts of lag.)
THAT PICTURE IS COOL BRO.

Woot, special projects. I don't get those. Just term papers xD.
SO?! DBZ ABRIDGED IS AMAZINGGGG!
April 24th, 2012 5:53 AMRokusasu
Next year I get to do a special project on anything I want, so hopefully I'll do well with that...
BUT I HAVE MASS EFFECT TO PLAY AND A MEETING TO GO TO. DX THEN MORE MASS EFFECT.
