Dragon age: gayness

I have to say I couldn't stomach watching the whole thing, but immense kudos to Bioware for daring to put the thing in there in the first place. I'm buying a copy first thing tomorrow.

 

Personally I find the whole latent homophobia in the gaming community (witnessed in online chat) at best laughable and at worst offensive. Apart from anything else, since when were nerds paragons of masculine virtue?

I must say, as a gay man the romance with Zevran was done quite well. Was happy they included that option in Dragon Age.

 

Now if only they would allow me to finally have a gay (Male+Male) Shephard in Mass Effect, which they cut for some reason in Mass Effect 2. *sigh*

Too bad the romance and sex scene suck.

 

 

... ignore the pun.

"Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

Im not gay, but if I was then I wouldnt go all gay with some nancyboy elf dude. Id like me a real man, someone with meat on his bones and hair all over his manly, sweaty body and that could lift logs with one arm.

If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.

For either God can not prevent the mischief of Satan, in which case he is not omnipotent; or else He could do so if he wished, but will not, in which case He is not benevolent. Fortunately, being a pagan witch, I am not called upon to solve this problem."

I am so loving playing as a female character who can romance a hot female character.

am finding all game romances a tad... creepy. gay game romances not bother us any more than does the traditional varieties as we avoid both flavors with equal resolve. a long as we can avoid we don't genuine care.

 

however, am gonna admit one final time that we were hopeful that da would not have gay romance. is not that Gromnir is offended by such material. while we thinks game romances is invariably juvenile and tacky, we recognize that they is popular and is now a non-negotiable feature in current and future bioware games. seems like a waste o' resources to add gay, but at same time we commented at bio (almost 5 years gone by now) that if they genuine felt strong 'bout gay romance they should add, and to hell with the detractors. we encouraged them to make the best damn gay romance they could.

 

...

 

sadly, the gay minority at bio is no better than karzak was... but criticize gay board guerrillas gets one labeled as a gay basher, while criticizing karzak were deemed a public service. am not certain how many threads were hijacked by the Gay Liberation Front as they fought for equal rights or some such similar nonsense. took Gromnir out o' the "support" category and put us in the "mild disdain" group... didn't want the GLF to thinks they got their romance through incessant whining as such would only encourage similar behavior in the future.

 

end rant.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Not surprisingly the gay romances are both bisexual characters, so I don't think much time would have actually been spent there that would have gone elsewhere, as we can agree that the romances are likely a guarantee from now on. From a cost analysis I don't think it would be too much.

Kaftan is on the right track. Bullblown "manly" homo-erotic gayness for teh win.

 

The only rpg in this decade that didn't have silly romances was The Witcher. Instead, it was straight to the point: "Wanna mess around?" "Sure babe". The only RPG that tried to add a more serious tone ever was PS:T.
