    Last week's entry discussing Dragon Age: Inquisition was mostly positive in its tone but it came with a few concerns. This wasn't to stay in character (I don't role play as a writer) of a negative person, but because no game is without its faults. Well, except for Tetris. After spending some more time with the game this week my tone has changed some. If last week was lukewarm then this week we are turning the knob up a bit to simmering. I guess that means it is time to break out the rolls.

    Yeah, I pushed that metaphor further than it was worth.

    This week was the launch of BioWare's latest adventure, and so began once more my tradition to take time off from work to play a game that excites me. It was a chance to see how the company was going to move forward with its first major release since the departure of the doctors. It was a chance to see how the company would respond to the criticisms and shortsightedness of how the previous game was put together. More than that, it was a chance to find new ways to get frustrated playing a game that is doing almost everything it can to steal the title of top major RPG away from the hands of Elder Scrolls.
