What an oddly well-timed question (you don’t work for EA Marketing, do you?) The answer is yes, and this will come up— at length— when you play DAI.
Good randomness to know. :-)
Anonymous said: i was wondering how you felt about all the dudebros claiming that BW is alienating their fanbase by including LGBT characters?
Which fanbase? The “dudebro fanbase”? Is that a thing? If someone comes to us and says, “you’re alienating those of your fans who expect to be catered to exclusively,” I have to say it’s a bit hard to feel bad about it. It’s not as if they don’t have other choices out there, after all, if it means that much to them. Certainly there are plenty of guys who don’t expect that, despite the willingness of these few to speak on their behalf.
Other thoughts that come to mind:
1) BioWare has been doing this for some time. If one was actually alienated by the inclusion of LGBT content, I think they’d know by now and have moved on.
2) It’s pretty clear that what bothers some of these gentlemen is not that there is a group of players being “catered” or “pandered” to—but that anyone other than them is receiving said catering and pandering. The mere idea that there is even some content included which was made without them in mind and without consulting their opinion is evidently insulting. Perhaps they can ask for advice on how to come to grips with that notion from fans who experience that elsewhere as a matter of course?
3) They talk about and think about this content way more than BioWare ever could, especially compared to how much of it is actually in the game. Maybe once they play, they’ll see that there’s plenty of other game for them to enjoy… unless they go specifically looking for stuff they don’t enjoy, which I guess they might. Some people are masochistic that way, I suppose.
This is list of the reason I love David Gaider.
Confession: If Dorian doesn’t twirl that ‘stache of his at some point, I’m going to be very disappointed.
Confession: I love that people are pumped to romance Cassandra, but a part of me ships her and Regalyan really hard. I hope that their relationship blossoms if you don’t romance her, just like Fenris and Isabela’s in DAII.
Anonymous said: do you have a plan if a zombie apocalypse were to occur?
Yes. I have a group of close friends (a tribe, really) who have discussed this at length. We have a rendezvous point, talked about who’s going to grab who to get there, which people have the weapons and know how to use them, where would be good Edmonton spots to hold up in if we can’t reach the rendezvous, etc.
Of course, we’ve also discussed which of us is going to hide our zombie bite from the rest of the group, who’s going to end up shooting who, who should probably be shot at the outset just to make things simpler, who’s going to go crazy and lock everyone else out of the safe house… so maybe we approach this whole thing as less of a “plan” and more as a “disaster narrative just waiting to write itself”.
And then they started a rock band and had wacky adventures. The end.
Note to self: always go with your first draft.
