So Dragon Age 2. I've been playing it. I love it so far, but I was really annoyed for a bit last night because I thought there was only boy one boy love interest, Fenris the brooding elf warrior, and he hates mages. Since mage is the only class I want to play in that game and I'm sympathetic to apostates...well because I am one I course I kept accidentally pissing him off. And it wasn't just -5 here and there, it was -10 or -20 every time. I even went back and redid a few things just to please him because I really wanted to woo him as a love interest. I think it's kind of fun and interesting that his character is influencing the choices I'm making and there's a lot that could be said about that, but ultimately it just annoyed me since I thought I was having to choose between making the choices I would have and pursuing that character.
That is until I found out that Anders, the scruffy kitten loving mage, is also a love interest. So rock on for multiple boys to woo, but boo because if you're playing a mage it makes it very hard to woo either of them. Fenris because he wants all mages locked up in the circle or killed, Anders because a two mage party is way too easy to kill.
It's still a great game so far though. I may try playing a mage Hawke, Anders, Isabella, Arienne party. That way I've got two melee, even if one is a rogue, and two mages. Hopefully the two melee characters will keep the baddies off the mages. I've been playing an Arienne, Fenris, Varric, mage Hawke party so far and that has been working out splendidly. It really is a shame about Fenris though. I really like him mechanically and flavor wise, and I really would like to make him a love interest for my character, but I think in order to do that AND also make the decisions I really want to, he's going to have to stay out of my party most of the time.
