So after about half a year of impatience, Bethesda finally announced that Dawnguard and Hearthfire will be released for PS3 in late Feburary, along with Dragonborn. At a 50% discount even. I’ll consider it an early birthday present from Bethesda.

I think I’ll do them with my Nightblade Dunmer, Finn, first. Then my Nord, Lockdown (yes, based on the Transformer), and then my Argonian.

And to all the haters who thought that Bethesda was skimping out on us PS3 owners and thinking that we weren’t worth the trouble: STFU!

Minor characters I'd like to see return as party members

Voice actors I'd like to hear

Jeff Bennet
David Kaye
Quinton Flynn
Brandon Keener
Jennifer Hale

Adam Baldwin

General thoughts
I just hope they'll still let players be pro-mage even though we're forming an anti-magic faction. And if so, how will the Chantry react to my character supporting mages' rights and mage freedom? Maybe the new Inquisition can be different from the last one.

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f'list to post questions in the comments. For example: 'One, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?' 'Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?' 'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?' 'Write a drabble in which three and eleven fight crime.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your f'list has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

Saw Tron a while back, but never posted anything on it. It wasn't a masterpiece of storytelling, but it was still a very fun movie. Very much a Tron movie. Even if digitally de-aged Jeff Bridges was kinda creepy looking. So yeah, I liked it.

Now, onto Dragon Age Origins. Fun game, very fun. Has the Bioware staples of being very long, letting you tell the story and shape the protagonist as you see fit, and being so fun that you don't want to stop playing. For my first playthrough I went with female human noble, who romanced Leliana.

For a Bioware game, it's got a lot of black and grey morality. A lot of the time there is no "right or wrong" choice. It really all comes down to what the player sees as the better solution. There are times when it's a little less ambiguous, though. It's also really dark, what with the PC suffering a personal tragedy in the first half hour of the game and then suffers tragedy after tragedy. Also unusual for a Bioware game is the lack of karma meter. I've heard it's got a lot of similarities to Balder's Gate, which I've never played but have heard is good.

I'm also such a huge dork that I've already got my next few playthroughs thought out in terms of origins, genders, and love interests.

So yeah. Tron is good, Dragon Age is good.

1. Comment in this post with a pairing, a character, or theory.
2. I shall write you back a paragraph explaining what I think about it and why.
3. Repost in your own journal if you want.

Current top fandoms are Transformers (always), Mass Effect, Fallout 3, Final Fantasy VII and X, The Boondocks, and Knights of the Old Republic. Feel free to use a fandom in my interest section as well, though.

Stolen from [ profile] wariena. Basically, take some characters you RP and talk about their sexual sides using the prompts. I only listed a few, and only because they tend to get the most "excersize".

So, while everyone on my f-list seems to have gotten into Supernatural, I myself have gotten into Millenium. It's good. Really good. And not just because of Lance Henriksen, but he is a big factor.

I really like Frank Black. He's such a likeable character, being someone who wants to help people and catch the bad guys while also being a loving family man. But there's also the fact that he's usually tettering on the edge of insanity thanks to his ability. Probably the biggest reason he hasn't yet is because, more than anything, of the unconditional love he has for his wife and daughter. Makes for a really great character. I honestly think this is Lance Henriksen at his best and Frank is probably his best heroic performance, if not his best performance period. His best villainous performance would be Lockdown, of course.

The other characters are good too, and their actors do a fantastic job, especially Frank's wife, Catherine, and his young daughter, Jordan. The family definatly has a good dynamic going. At least one villain-of-the-week was a bit narmy, but the episode was still enjoyable.

I also can't help but notice how well-shot the series is. The camera work is excellent, and so is the lighting. The lighting really brings out Lance's features, especially his eyes. Every few minutes I find myself going "wow, Lance has pretty eyes".

Just about to finish season 1, then it's on to season 2. Now if only there was some fanfiction out there...

Pick a ship I like from any fandom you know I'm into and I'll tell you:

1. When I started shipping them
2. What I think their challenge is
3. What makes me happy about them
4. What makes me sad about them
5. What moment I wish had never happened
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other
7. My happily ever after for them

Also, to those waiting on pics and drabbles from the other memes, I'm working on them, I swear.
arwingyoshi: (prowl+jazz)
Yeah, I still need to get on the art one that's similar to this one, and I swear I will once I have my art muse back. In the meantime, might as well do this one too.

The Rules
The first 10 people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

1. Lockdown meets G1 or movie-verse

Fandoms: Transformers (mostly G1, movie, and Animated), Mass Effect, Knights of the Old Republic, and [ profile] damned. Others I might have missed can be found in my profile.
arwingyoshi: (sly cooper)
Stolen from a couple of people on my f-list. Already did Transformers Animated for a similar meme, so no point in doing this meme for that fandom. Also, I've only played Mass Effect 1, so I'm not taking the second game into account for this.

Comment and I'll give you three fandoms. Then fill out the following:

Fandoms: Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid )

What website do you use most? and DeviantArt. Gonna start using LJ to pimp out my future fics, since most of my stuff was written before I got a LJ
What do you think of it sometimes, hate it sometimes. Sometimes it has a nice gem or two, but it also has shit. Sometimes it feels like cooperating with me with my own work, sometimes it feels like being a bitch. Could also do without the ads, thank you.

Pairings?Starscream/Dreadmoon, mostly. Been wanting to write Lockdown/Devcon at some point
Any fandoms you would like to write in?Mass Effect, Eternal Darkness, Digimon, and Bayverse Transformers

What warnings have you used on your fiction/read?Right now just PG-13 and R
Do you have any squicks?Not many. It depends on the context, mostly.

Favorite fandom to write/read?Transformers
Favorite pairing?TFA Jazz/Prowl, Prowl/Lockdown, Thundercracker/Skywarp, Thundercracker/Starscream, Chromia/Ironhide, Inferno/Red Alert, Inferno/Firestar, Starscream/Dreadmoon. I have a few more in both this fandom and others, but if I listed them then we'd be here forever.
Favorite writer/writers?Wayward, Demyrie, KoiLungfish, Keiko Aosaki, and tons of others
How long should a chapter be?As long as it needs to be, as long as it's not super short
Do you write/read drabbles?Oh yeah
Any fandoms you avoid?None that I can think of
Pairings you avoid?any variation of Starscream/Megatron, and G1 Jazz/Prowl never did it for me
Warnings you avoid?Eh, can't think of anything at the moment
Do the number of reviews tell how good a story is?Nope
What do you think of Mary Sues?Where's the flamethrower
