Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m not Irish and I don’t really celebrate it, but I do make sure to wear green just to avoid pinches. Hmm…maybe next year I’ll rethink this. I ran out to get a green shirt for my male alt for a post on the style blog [I wanted us to match] and so I figured since I had him on, I might as well take a pic for this blog. Lots of green in this photo!
Last night I received Dragon Age: Awakening, the expansion pack for Origins. I’ve put in a bit of time playing so far [I’m worthless without a walkthrough, I’ve discovered] but it’s been ok. There’s a lot more fighting than in DA:O, which I suppose for some would be a plus. And there’s a bit less interaction with the party members. And yes, I completely miss the romance aspect, as it is not in DA:A.
The worst part is that I had to uninstall my mods to get the game to work properly. With the mods installed, the darkspawn wouldn’t look at me. They were just hanging out. So after I uninstalled the mods, I went back and imported my 2nd character, Alyssa, because I had gotten the closest to her and she had become queen at the end of DA:O. This is what she looked like when I played through with her before.
Unfortunately, with the mods uninstalled, something happened. And my pretty character… well, she ended up like this.
I don’t get it either.
I’m eager to get through the game, though. But I do hope there is a patch at some point so that I can keep my mods & still play correctly.
Ok, I feel nerdy writing this post, so I’m going to go stare at my clothes or something.
