DRAGON AGE INQUISITION: Our search will take us to every corner of this land. The beautiful, the dangerous, the ancient places where no one walks alone. This is the world we are trying to save. [x]
Trying so hard not to get excited about this. I don’t want another DA2 heartbreak. *plays hard to get*
It’s been a rough week so far, so it’s time to watch Fellowship of the Ring. Expect lord of the rings posts in the near future…
P.s. If anyone is able to transport me to the Shire, please let me know. I’m only a little taller than a hobbit, I’ll fit right in.
It only took forever to upload, but it’s finally here! The TMI Tag, 50 questions you might be wondering about me! If you want to do this tag yourself you can check out my blog post for the list of questions, and do please send me your videos!
sirenhunter5-the-lonely-outcast asked: are you sad that Irrational Games shut down today?
Sorry for taking so long to answer this!
I have to admit when I first read the news on Irrational’s page, I felt deeply saddened. It seems like such an overreaction, but here is a company who’s games have affected me on a very emotional level. I felt a lot of worry about the future of Bioshock in particular, as a lot of times companies mess up sequels when they are made without the original creators. That being said, Bioshock 2 was made by a sister company and I loved it! In fact it’s clear to see a lot of inspiration was taken from it when they made Infinite.
I feel sad for the people who are losing their jobs. The games industry is not really a stable industry and it’s common for designers to move from company to company (as it is with almost all design/creative fields) but it is still sad that such a strong group of people are being split up. I am still unsure why irrational couldn’t stay open and Levine simply move to a smaller company with his selected team. Maybe I’m not that business minded, but surely creating more jobs in the industry is a plus, and as he mentions in his letter, they surely have the funds to do so.
I’m really curious to see what Levine does in the future. I’ve been following him on twitter, as based on his likes and things he has said I think we can expect something outside the box. I imagine it will be a story driven core indie game, but the likes of which you don’t see big companies publishing. Hopefully it will be great, and hopefully he does better than Peter Molyneux, when he left lionehead. I love Molyneux, but sometimes you can think so outside the box that you forget where the box was in the first place.
TLDNR: I was super sad, now I’m over it. Great things might come of this, but if not, there will be other great games to play.
Sorry but like how is no one freaking out about The Sims 4?
LOOK AT IT. LOOK.
THERE AREN’T ANY SLIDERS. YOU CAN ADJUST BODY SHAPE SO YOU COULD HAVE A FAT SIM WITH SKINNY LEGS AND BROAD SHOULDERS. OR A SKINNY SIM WITH A BARREL CHEST AND CHUNKY THIGHS.
SIMS HAVE EMOTIONS AND MEMORIES ACTUALLY AFFECT WHAT YOUR SIMS CAN DO.
AND THEY DON’T LOOK LIKE WEIRD, SHINY, PUDDING PEOPLE.
ALSO JUST LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL THAT FIRST PICTURE IS. LOOK AT IT.
MY BODY IS READY.
But my wallet is not.
im really glad that video game credits are so long bc it gives me a sufficient amount of time to cry and reevaluate the meaning of life
