So... does anyone else love using create-a-character features way too much?
I spend ridiculous amounts of time making sure my characters look good.

I had a weird dream about XCOM which basically listed off full biographies for half the memorial wall in my last playthrough.

It was a bit depressing actually.

they make me so angry.

there was a good proportion of my last ironman where the only deaths I had were things I could fully attribute to "Chrysalid bullshit"... because I woke them up half way through my turn and they used their free move to run right into my face... I can deal with the 'free move' cheat the aliens get most of the time... but when its chrysalids, who can move RIDICULOUSLY far with that free move and invariably go and stand right next to you... it's very frustrating.

Luckily I didn't actually run into them that many times in the main game.

I regret that Oghren doesn't fill a party slot that Sten or Allistair don't fill better. My party is usually Sten as bruiser, Alistair as anti magic and tank, Wynne as mage (healing, some detriment spells) and Warden as rogue.
I love Sten dearly but I would argue Oghren is a better brusier by dint of his berserker specialisation. He's at the very least not obsolete compared to Sten.

But OTOH I've played the game so many times with the exact same party composition that it's fresh air just to pick new people here and there.

Who aren't Alistair.

I'd actually like to jump back in to the DA:O part of this conversation and say that while I favor the mage, I'm currently playing as an ambitious and vengeful Human Noble Rogue, with Shale, Morrigan (as a Healer) and Dog/Sten. I do love Oghren, though.

Is anyone else hoping Inquisitions lets you get the Warden and Hawke as party members?
Depends on whether Hawke draws their personality from how you 'set' it during DA2. Not sure how to feel about warden, given they weren't voiced in the first game and the personality obv isn't as defined as Hawke... I'd on the one hand LOVE to see my own custom warden in the game, but I'd hate it if they weren't, y'know... acting like my warden.

If you mean Oblivion, I sort of felt that one tailed off post the purge/purification (forget what it was called) on account of it wiping out the whole group of people I'd got to like and identify with and then having a bunch of random, straightforward scraggings without much flavour or character to them (unlike previously)

If you mean Skyrim - the feels were real. In terms of building up to a climax and overall payoff, that was probably one of the best written plotlines in the game.

Today I attempt to start dragon age inquisition for the sixth time.

No it doesn't crash, no I don't have compatibility issues.

Attempt #1: Dodgy graphics settings caused lag.
Attempt #2: Didn't load Keep properly.
Attempt #3: Messed up on the custom story in Keep, realised, had to go fix it.
Attempt #4: Accidentally gave my qunari horns I didn't like (yes, I am that finnicky about my PC's appearance)
Attempt #5: Realised that I hadn't been loading Keep properly into Inquisition and that furthermore, it had reset the file I wanted to use, requiring me to fix it from scratch.

I AM NOT VERY GOOD AT THIS.

KEEP IS NOT A VERY SELF EXPLANATORY SYSTEM.
