Origins in DA2 style

Postby vio » Tue Apr 05, 2011 2:13 pm

I started to throw together a short parody of what Origins would've been like if it used DA2s design ideas on the BioWare forum (to their credit BioWare don't lock or delete parodies or constructive criticisms) but due to surprising amounts of positive feedback I kept writing more, 'tis here if anyone fancies a read. it makes fun of a few flaws and common criticisms in Origins as well

if preferred I can copy-paste it here instead of linking

I pressed the button to click on the link and something awesome did happen!

Sorry for the bad joke, but that is indeed absolutely hilarious. Well done!

That is every bit as funny as a parody of "Arrival" I read at the Steam Mass Effect forums.

Best line so far: "If you like cheese so much maybe you should eat the script." Made me laugh out loud.

This is great stuff Vio! :laugh:

Funny and accurate at the same time. They should have hired you as a writer for DA2. :)

The only thing I would suggest is put the links to the later parts at the top of the page...I'm getting tired of scrolling down to find them :D .

all 35 parts are now fully edited. I've added a few extra bits (including the Broodmother which I'd somehow forgotten) and of course the pictures. Expect Hunt For Awakened Golems soon
