Dragon Age Inquisition: Playthrough Day 24

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Alright. Nothing left to it but to do it.
  • It’s Doom Time.
  • Oh, crashed.
  • Oh Corypheus.
  • Oh Morrigan.
  • Oh crap.
  • Who’s got the orb now, Corphy?
  • That’s right. You call on your Gods. Lets see if they exist.
  • I’m Faderizing you.
  • Oops–sorry about your orb Solas.
  • Solas? Where’d you go?
  • Oh Bull, you are a card.
  • Wow, this is some good camera work. Nearly every conversation I’m having with people at the party, the camera pivots so I’m looking at the back of a chair or a fire.
  • Aw, Dorian and Sera want to stay. That’s sweet.
  • I don’t feel like I ever became BFFs with Bull, but maybe it’s because I made him let his pals die.
  • You know, I kind of thought there was going to be more after that.
  • It seems as though we didn’t actually wrap up a lot of issues.
  • Oh Leilana became Divine. I had kind of wanted Cassandra, but there didn’t seem to be a way to choose to back her.
  • Meanwhile, Morrigan takes off into the mountains once again. Poor homeschooled Keirgan.
  • BioWare ought to list the babies born during the reading of the credits.
  • I…wait…what…?

Dragon Age Inquisition: Playthrough Day 23

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • One…More…Dragon…
  • Thedas is DRAGON FREE.
  • Ok, now finished all the quests besides some of the collection ones, the drawing ones, and the requisitions.
  • Oh, we never found out what that really expensive mystery box the ass in Val Royeau was selling.
  • Do we dare…
  • I don’t know what I was expecting, really.

Dragon Age Inquisition: Playthrough Day 22

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ok, I was initially going to bag the dragon quest, but now I can’t get the shards unless I get the three dragons in Emprise, which look to be the hardest ones, so I suppose I might as well get all of them.
  • Ok Sampson, no matter how you want to spin it, I’m not really the bad guy here.
  • The reality is that I’m never gonna come down all that hard on Sampson, when Gideon Emery is coming out of his mouth.
  • The other horrible truth is that if Raphael Sbarge was voicing Corypheus, my Inquisitor would be all “where do I sign up?!”
  • I think I’ve lost Solus somewhere. He’s not in his little round room anymore.
  • Shouldn’t the Helm of the Inquisitor be the best hat? Why is the Gladiator hat rated better?
  • Oh man, finally killed the second Emprise dragon. Had to switch to Vivienne and resuscitate Bull like five times.
  • Finally can finish the shard temple. Err…where was it again?
  • Look guys, if there are huge glowing circles on the floor giving you shocks, maybe don’t walk into them all the time b
  • One more dragon, but there’s no way I can finish it without gaining another level or so.
  • I wonder if the Final Piece is end game? Or if we have another?
  • Well, might as well give it a try.
  • Oh hi again, Fade.
  • FLEMETH
  • Well that was not how I imagined that was going to go down.

Dragon Age Inquisition: Playthrough Day 21

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ok, back to the temple.
  • Well that first ritual didn’t seem so bad.
  • Oh, they get harder.
  • How can you get through the gates?
  • Man, now I kind of wish I had gone down the hole.
  • Oh hi, ancient elf.
  • Decisions, decisions…
  • Ok, I think I’m going to take the deal. It’s their well, after all.
  • Oh Morrigan.
  • Well I can see how this is going.
  • I can’t tell if I actually have to hurry to keep up with the elf guide, or if it’s one of those “HURRY, THE EMPIRE IS FALLING say can you drop these letters off at the next town” kind of things.
  • Um, the guide appears to have stopped guiding.
  • Oh, I had totally forgotten we made the anti-armor disc.
  • Poor Abelas.
  • Wow, this power of the well is sounding less and less good.
  • Well, I don’t want to have to fight Morrigan under well-water influence, but I also really don’t want to be the one under well-water influence.
  • Oh good, absolutely no one thought it was a good idea to let Morrigan have the well. I asked you guys!
  • Corypheus made a dragon his horcrux?!

Dragon Age Inquisition: Playthrough Day 20

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Fine Josephine. For Alistair, I’ll spare you for a day.
  • Oh, I forgot this mission was available: Helping the elves find a tomb.
  • So far this tomb excavation doesn’t seem like it went very well.
  • These tomb guards aren’t very attentive.
  • I don’t get how some things are impossible to find, with no clues whatsoever, and other ones you keep getting popup messages like “LOOK HERE DOLT!!”
  • The whole tomb was for the elf version of Pocohontus?
  • I feel bad about selling the King Calenhad sword Alistair gave me, but it’s really too low for me now.
  • I love Cullen’s responses to half the war table missions. “OH FOR MAKER’S SAKE.”
  • Damn it, I bet the last ocularium is in dragon country.
  • Dragons. Why did it have to be dragons.
  • Ow. After about 20 minutes of fighting all by myself, after everyone else died, I finally killed the first dragon. I think I broke my mouse hand.
  • Ok, I have to take a break from dragons. Maybe the next story mission?
  • Man, I really hope What Pride Had Wrought is not endgame.
  • Wait, I’m not going to get a chance to get ready or anything?
  • Argh. I want to change my party. Maybe I’ll get a chance at the next blockade.
  • Oh, I guess we’re not stopping at each blockade.
  • Maybe when we hit the temple?
  • Ok, we don’t seem to be stopping.
  • Reload.
  • Dragon Age Inquisition: Playthrough Day 19

    Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Can you imagine Cassandra as the Divine? HAW.
  • Sometimes Blackwall over-shares.
  • There should be some way you can tell the singer to stop singing the Sampson song. I get it already.
  • I guess…we didn’t help Briala? I had kind of thought that we had.
  • Oh Cullen…
  • Whoa Cullen! Good thing the Inquisitor chose that particular spot to sit up.
  • Hey Morrigan!
  • Er…Morrigan and a kid…
  • Well he certainly doesn’t seem to have taken after his father much.
  • I don’t know that I would just walk into the eluvian like that.
  • Oh Blackwall, you scamp.
  • Ok, someone needs to tell BioWare that in a time of sorrow, “I don’t know what to say” does not equal “well…shit.”
  • Every time I walk through Skyhold, there are more people eating.
  • I…What…Blackwall…
  • Good Lord. Sebastian is still after Anders.
  • Oh hey, that was apparently the total wrong thing to say to Leilana. Reload.
  • You know, this loot-free chantry is beautiful, but if you had given me this much more time in the Imperial Palace, I could have done some damage.
  • Dragon Age Inquisition: Playthrough Day 18

    Spoiler Thoughts:

    • Oh hey, remember when NVIDIA reset my graphics settings, and now it looks like I’m playing Minecraft?
    • Ok, who really thinks it’s a good idea to reassemble this temple dude?
    • Turns out, no one except the dead people.
    • Wait, all the Grey Wardens died? I feel this is kind of significant.
    • Ok, time to go to the ball.
    • Now to figure out who to take to the ball–which rogue is less likely to embarrass us?
    • Gaspard, you jerk.
    • Let me get this straight: Our discrete eavesdropping position is standing in the middle of a planter?
    • This time limit is cramping my slow, meandering style.
    • Not a fan of Briala. Freedom fighters are all well and good until they crack and turn Anders on you.
    • Oh hey Vints–just come and hack on me while I’m wearing my nice clothes.
    • Ooh, I love this dancing segment.
    • Oh, we must have quick-changed coming back from the trophy room.
    • This time limit is making me think I haven’t seen the whole palace.
    • Wait, how was Briala helping?
    • Why did she send that poor elf girl into the Royal Wing to get attacked?
    • Orlais might be too complicated a place for me.
    • I am the INSTRUMENT OF ANDRASTE
    • MORRIGAN
    • Ohhh Cullen…. [hearts, flowers, doves scatter around]
