Not to forget that that horrible DA 2 version of Anders was an abomination she created. Justice and Anders were AWESOME characters in Awakening and they managed to kill both characters, with just ONE character. Amazing.Ed130 said:Partly. She isn't regarded as a particularly good writer either.TheDrunkNinja said:Wait wait wait...
So, this woman is loathed and hissed at by the Escapist community for the simple fact that she herself doesn't like to play video games?
Um. Alright. How should I put this? Um, "get over it"?
I don't get it. I thought we were more open-minded about these kinds of things.
The decision to turn every romancable character bi-sexual was hers. I could understand the Pirate Whore and possibly one other, but all of them?
Its rather lazy writing and renders the characters dependent upon Hawke, which was one of the reason why I enjoyed Varric and Aveline more than them.
EDIT: It also makes a normal friendship with the characters much harder, part of this is due to only having Saint, Arsehole and Moron for dialogue choices which when the Saint choice will start/restart the romance leaves players who wanted Emo the Elf to become bash brothers with Hawke out in the cold.
Yes you are trivialising this, because one of the strong points of every Bioware game were always the good characters. Sexuality is a big part of someone's character and just making all characters bisexual kills that part of the characters because it's then basically non existant anymore. It's fine to have bisexual characters in the game. DA Origins had two, one of each gender. The male one was sexually really open, so he always starts to flirt with you, no matter the gender. It can make you a bit uncomfortable, but it fits into the character.Zachary Amaranth said:Isn't this a series where you can dress your allies as you please and even order them around like puppets?Ed130 said:The decision to turn every romancable character bi-sexual was hers.

...I don't get it. They can e attracted to both sexes as you deem fit? O NOES!
Sorry if it seems like I'm trivialising this, but I can't see any problem.
In DA 2 every one of your companions starts to flirt with you. It doesn't matter if you're already in a relationship with someone or not, it doesn't matter if it fits their characters to be initiating the flirtations, they need to go flirt with hawke so the player can have oh so much choice
