That new chapter for Arya in The Winds of Winter, that is worth waiting for and I’ll wait for however long it takes.

I am definitely impressed, and only builds my excitement for the show coming up in less than a week now.

If you haven’t read the chapter yet, the link is here:

If you are committed type who won’t read until it’s published, then believe me when I tell you “No One” still remembers who she is.


Civilization 5

I finally got around to playing it with Brave New World installed, and it still totally eats my day with how fun it is. I like the changes and the new Civs but I all I can think about is how cool would it be to have a A Song of Ice and Fire game like CIv or a decent mod for Civ5.

Before anyone tells me there is a couple, I mean some good ones that aren’t buggy or crash your games.

I’d settle for a westeros and essos map with the narrow sea really but its still hard to find one that isn’t some one trying too hard to make it “the” asoiaf mod.

I think the expansion makes the late game a lot more interesting with the world congress and the changes that make it possible to win a real cultural victory. I like the changes and I am pretty sure I’ve gotten more than my moneys worth with Civ5 and it’s still the best way to spend a lazy day.

Dragon Age: Inquisition to Have 40 Different Endings – Update

A nice post that sums up the various marketing points out there now about Dragon Age Inquisition. I like the community response of the people behind it on the forums, it shows that some one cares enough not to let some marketing person trump up things too much and oversell/overhype their game. That’s a plus to me, it shows they are willing to be honest with the fans and that there is no companion DLC is also a plus for the same reason.

I am sure there will be Day 1 DLC of some kind but at least it won’t be a character of significance with the sole purpose of charging 9.99$ on top of buying the game. It will probably be some character mission or some random dungeon or gear for 9.99$ or the dreaded 14.99$

Either way, honesty upfront goes a long way to rebuilding trust which bioware has in short supply.

I really hope they do an ultimate edition thing that bundles all the DLC eventually like DA:O did. Not the nickel and diming they did with ME 2+3 and DA2.

So far they really have listened to what people griped about and done something about it, which is good but I am still on wait and see mode. They have fooled me once with ME3 endings, and I don’t want to be fooled again.
