Some of you know that I like to park it and play a video game for stress relief sometimes. I had a blast playing Dragon Age: Origins and all of the DLC, plus the Awakening expansion, while I was writing Renegade Angel and then Dark Awakening...slaying darkspawn was pretty cathartic:-) Books, movies, video games...I'm a sucker for a good story, wherever I find it. And I'm a fantasylovin' girl from way back. So you won't be surprised that I was all over the demo for Dragon Age II when it was released yesterday (just the demo...the game isn't out until March 8th..and yes I have pre-ordered the signature edition and am ridiculously psyched). It was just a taste of the new game, but they've changed some things, and I was anxious to have at it. I plan to go through the demo as each of the three classes (warrior, mage, rogue), but last night I stuck to rogue, that being my favorite. Why? Well...leather armor and being able to pick locks and sneak up and backstab people has its appeal. Anyway, here's one of the more recent trailers for the game. Yes, this is what I enjoy wasting time on. I wish there was a trailer showing the female version of the main character, Hawke, because that's who I play with (she's very pretty), but you'll get the idea anyway.
In other news, I am still writing along...that's not very exciting to talk about, but it seems to be going well. Writing a more empowered and sarcastic heroine, which is always fun for me. I mean, you never want to cross over into Pure Bitch, but sarcastic is always fun. You know I love my snark:-)
Have a good one!
