The original Dragon Age: Origins is still worth playing, and still feels modern. It borrows quite heavily from Game of Thrones, then only a book series and not TV yet, which means it has aged well. The combat system is also a nice system with a few complex interactions between spells. Downside is the engine which puts you completely on rails and then tries to hide it. You can only use the pre-defined corridors, much like NWN or something, but the game tries its damnedest to make you not notice overmuch by giving you environments that are corridor-based anyway.

DA2 should be avoided like the plague. There is nothing good about this game, and the gameplay in particular is non-existent.

DA:I is not bad, per se, but it is more of an off-brand Skyrim than anything else, and the story just isn't very good.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Watching a Switch stream and people trying to mimic the video motion controls and failing already. 10 years of this shit.

I did! Complete impulse buy. It was sold out everywhere but my local Target had 20 in stock. Picked it up with Zelda during my lunch break. You know what I'm playing all weekend... Destiny.

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.

Anyone else play Rocket League's new mode, Dropshot, yet?

I've been playing doubles about 4 nights per week for the last several months, and I didn't give Dropshot much thought, but holy crap, is that mode fun. I was initially skeptical, and I'm not sure how long the novelty will last, but the concept is so much better in practice.

Playing it now. Combat system is interesting, and a lot faster than previous iterations. Story is okay. Squad mates don't seem to have as much input. Facial animations are bad. The lead character always look like he is about to make a joke during a serious situation or just farted.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

That would be ME:A, yes? What platform are you playing on?

It seems to be suffering from a lack of polish. The facial animations are the joke of the gaming side of the 'net right now. Wonder if they will clean this up with a patch, or if they think it's fine?

Playing on xBox One. A patch is coming to fix a lot of things. The character creator customization as well. Also to fix some of the jankyness when driving around planets. The game is pretty and there is a lot to do.

Most people seem to agree that it is DA:I in space. I think I'll pick it up on a sale some time.
