Wonder what role he plays and if he'll be a factor in the next game which we think will include Tevinter and the Qunari.

Bioware what are you doing. That quote is terrible and I'm sure at some points isn't even english and it's coming out days after a character profile that reads like it belongs on a deviant artist's OC Sonic character.

Or as if it were drawn on him with a sharpie. I was starting to get excited for this game, ready to forgive for all the stuff that bugged me in 2... and then they started showing the characters.

Cassandra - What happened to her? I saw what were apparently design notes on her new face, they wanted to make her look more aggressive and she just looks strange due to her neck being thinned out to make her now more angular face stand out more.

Vivienne - Her quotes make her sound like a Morrigan stand-in. In a game where Morrigan is back.

Sera - Clipping her belt in her own promotional screenshot. On a more aesthetic note, her boobs seem to begin at the bottom of her ribcage? Either that or she's being bound in a very uncomfortable way by that leather outfit.

Cole - OC The Hedgehog character profile.

Dorian - That quote and sharpie mustache.

RabidChinaGirl Not so bad but Freddy Prinze Jr doing a Sean Connery impression is really weird.

Well, you know he's voiced some pretty profound and well-written characters before for BioWare, like....... James Vega.

I will never stop associating him with that.

To be fair, Bulk Squatthrust was better than I thought he was going to be. His interactions with Steve were also what made the latter's character something more than grieving g*y dude as his defining traits. With Max Truckflex around you learn a bit more about him as a pilot and teammate and in turn through the two's discussions you see that Biff Chunkdiesel is a supportive and dedicated friend. I also like the nicknames.

Iron Bull's character seems to be more or less Oghren without going into full alcoholism but it works for him because of how insanely reserved the majority of his race is.

Supposedly Dorian is the game's male. Sera is the game's female.
eh, I'll probably use him, depends on how good a mage he is.

Yes the art work as far as how the characters look in this game leaves as lot to be desired but we're stuck with it for better or worse.
ugh, can't use that g word again lol.

Xeros the Slayer Hah, Bulk Squatthrust.

I wasn't a fan. Maybe my experience was just soured by how he shamelessly flirted with my Shep.

Ohh, I went through male shep first time and didn't get that. After coming out of DA2 I was more surprised and impressed that everyone in the universe didn't suddenly have Shep-centric sexuality.

People say that was simply Bio being inclusive, but really it was just so they had to write and voice less dialogue.

Edit: I will give him one thing, in every interview he sounds like he's absolutely in love with the work and I can't help but be won over by that. People enjoying what they do usually shines through and it makes me pretty happy.

And just because I love them so much I got another - Johnson "The Bodyslapper" Tigerjustice

Double Edit: Confirmed first homosexual male playable character (outside of player decision) in any of their games. And he's flamboyant, mincing, and a source of sarcastic humor in the party? Did... did Gaider just add the token g*y friend from early 2000's sitcoms to a fantasy rpg?

I don't know whether to be offended at the stereotyping being paraded as progressive and inclusiveness or relieved at the confirmation that we're done with protag-centric sexuality.

I don't like his mustache. I suppose it's bad for me to dislike him solely because of that but eh. The quotes in the reveals have been flat. I've been disappointed so far with the character reveals but I might just like Cole and eventually Vivienne. She is stylish.

Asyilem Nah it's a pretty bad sharpie stash. If what you can do can be topped by an amateur via photoshop in under ten minutes then maybe it's not a good PR picture.

Something else came to mind. I hope they don't do the DA2 Anders thing with Dorian. Where he's a little whiny baby if you don't want to have sex with him from the moment he's introduced.

The Anders Double Standard: If a woman meets a man and the guy gets all pissy because she's not immediately all over his dick, he's very rightly identified as an asshole, a massive one.
But if you're a man facing the same then you're just uncomfortable with homosexuality as a whole and how dare you infringe on their inclusion.
