CONFESSION: 

I hate going through the Hall of Heroes and listening to the dwarf begging for food. The game won’t let me help him and it gets me upset.

THIS. I hate that I can’t give him anything.

so people who play on consoles can’t import the warden and hawke into inquisition?? because of the origin account thingy??

You can, if you previously had an Origin Account and linked it to Origins/2. It’s possible. Otherwise, no.

CONFESSION: 

 I booked the week Dragon Age Inquisition off from work to play. Now the release date has changed and I can’t move my holiday and I am genuinely gutted. The same thing happened with Mass Effect 3. I know it’s sad and pathetic but I’m genuinely devastated I have a week with nothing to do and then the game is released and I’ll have to play around work.

In the same boat OP. looks like it’ll be a repeat of me Playing Origins:Me: sits at desk thinking of Dragons.Colleague1: hey, how are you?Colleague2: oh god don’t ask that I can’t hear about the Dwarf civil war again.

The situation is just intolerable. 
There have been a lot of really insightful write-ups recently. A broader perspective—and I almost cringe to say—catch-all by Molly Crabapple left me gasping for breath. This write up, by Elizabeth Sampat giving her thoughts on an industry that’s very dear to me, delivered the final blow and left me in tears.
It’s really rare that I create from a place of grief. It’s just not how I operate. But it’s largely what I have openly felt for the last few days, and reflecting on it, it’s been there for far longer.
This quote from Elizabeth’s piece— “We should have a war memorial for all of the women we have lost to this. We should lay flowers and grieve and see our reflections in stone.”— struck a very literal chord in me.
So yeah, here it is. A place just for me where I can light a candle and remember all of the wonderful people I probably will never get the chance to meet.  Folks that have been driven away by these horrible fucks that have the audacity to think they know what gaming and community is about.
en memoriam.

I have never, in my life, been ashamed to call myself a gamer. Until now. These misogynist little shitbags are a disgrace to our community.
All of us who care about gaming need to step up and save our community, while there is still something about it that’s worth saving.

How can you make the two greatest assassins in the universe completely useless and boring?

dangolding:

The last few weeks in videogame culture have seen a level of combativeness more marked and bitter than any beforehand.

First, a developer—a woman who makes games who has had so much piled on to her that I don’t want to perpetuate things by naming her—was the target of a harassment campaign that…

This is really strong.

rubyvroom:

thin people experience oppression too!

No. They don’t.

Maybe someone once said you were too skinny, or that they like someone to have more meat on their bones. Maybe somebody dismissively told you to eat a sandwich. That sucks. That is not okay.

But that’s not oppression. And…
