A little girl gaming!
So I have Dragon Age 2 on preorder and it'll be here tomorrow. I'm pretty excited, but I have a few mild concerns for BioWare. Oh, nothing major, minor eyerolls, but they are minor eyerolls endemic to a genre.
Concern number 1: Considering that protagonists can be either male or female, do you have to always focus on a male protag in marketing? (Look. Female Shepherd? Far superior.)
Concern number 2: Do female villains / monsters have to be so sexualized when they're sexualized? I'm afraid we have to bring up the button-bikini desire demons. You do recognize that this got a little weird in the first game, don't you? I mean, a little weird. Since your own codex noted that desire is not synonymous with sex, why not occasionally play up other aspects? Or if you must, maybe have the demon change shape according to the protagonist? Not that I am honestly looking forward to purple guys in tiny speedos, but I am just saying.
Concern number 3: Can we have a female companion that has just slightly less impressive boobs?
THAT IS ALL I WANT. WISHLIST FOR DRAGON AGE 3.*
*There are also some endemic guy problems. Maybe I will cover them in another post. (Or - male elf companions. Discuss.)
