Dragon Age 2: Act 2 Thoughts, Part 1

Spoiler thoughts:

  • You would think, with all of Hawke’s new-found fortune, she’d spring for a decent haircut.
  • Three years, Fenris. Are you even dusting the dead bodies?
  • It took Sebastian three years to figure out that one of the neighbors killed his whole family.
  • Poor Barlin. Still trying to get poison for his traps.
  • Ah Sebastian’s long day’s journey into night at the Harrowman Estate. Home of the most embarrassing Desire Demon victims ever.
  • Merrill’s turn to betray me in the Fade. Fenris and Anders did ok though–I thought it turned everyone but Anders against me last time.
  • Well you have to give Emeric points for persistence, since he’s been pursuing this ladykiller for like four years with no help.
  • Hubert is the worst boss ever. Plus it’s always amazing that you just stand there while he makes all these racist anti-Ferelden comments.
  • I never know what to think about Fenris crushing Hadriana’s heart after he said he wouldn’t. On the one hand, I feel like I’m supposed to be horrified that he broke his word, and on the other hand…slavery, man.
  • But he seems kind of sorry she was so awful he had to kill her. Oh, who are we kidding. Gideon Emery’s voice comes out a character, they could commit genocide and I’d still give them a pass.
  • Anders and Aveline seem to have kind of an ambivalent relationship. All their dialogue is one or the other of them trying to be friendly and getting shut down.
  • Hard to look good, DuPuis, when the woman is standing right there saying you hurt and bled her.
  • Alas for Emeric. The only guy in Kirkwall who was actually trying to unselfishly do good, and everyone thought he was nuts.
  • On the other hand, if you honestly think you can do good in Kirkwall, you might be a little nuts.
  • Why Fenris, this is so sudden. Assuming you consider four years sudden.

  1. Fenris keeps the corpses in his house even through Act III. Either his mansion smells worse than a meat locker, or he keeps replacing them. I’m not sure which is worse, really.

    I saw a picture of Fenris smiling, once. That disturbed me more than anything else in the game.

    1. Fenris’ meat decorations are pretty disturbing, but I always feel worse for the guy who is standing around outside the Viscount’s office complaining “I’VE BEEN WAITING ALL DAY” knowing that he’s been cooling his heels for about four years.
