Best character right? So sassy. Kate Mulgrew totally owned that role.

I don't know the game, but I love Captain Janeway. :heart:

same! And Red in Orange is the New Black.

Dragons Age is a series of rpg's, initially inspired by top down, isometric classics like Baldurs Gate, developed by Bioware, back when their name meant something.

The setting is high fantasy, lots of magic, elves etc. But the world design and the movie like narrative structure set it apart. Mostly great writing, some good voice work, typified the series, which moved increasingly towards action rpg format in it's latest installment.

But Flemeth is a mysterious and powerful witch, voiced by Kate Mulgrew, who, by all accounts, had little understanding or interest in the series and largely phones it in, yet, still manages to sound amazing as the enigmatic, slightly unhinged constant of the series.

One of the best characters in the series, with fascinating back story. I love her look too. Very bad ass old lady thing going on.

Awesome, I see/hear what you mean!

Have you ever seen NTSF:SD:SUV::?

Here are a few samples :P




That second one is a bit painful. :')

I've only seen bits of it. I've been trying to find the whole show on torrent for ages... (apparently the episodes are mostly just 11 minutes but there are 3 seasons of them.)

After watching a very long YouTube series of three idiots doing a chaotic road trip across America in The Crew 2 I downloaded the demo of it because it looked fun... I'm utterly uniformly without exception terrible at racing games but it's so satisfying to just drive around in a big open-world scaled-down continental US in a bunch of nice cars (even though I only have 3) that I'm seriously considering buying the full game just to be my new time-sink relaxation game, cause the demo is the full game but you only get 4 hours of playtime before it cuts you off and I'm about halfway through that already.

I'm super old fiashioned when it comes to games - I'm playing the same games or newer versions of them like Diablo or The Sims.
I'll not probably visit this topic very often. :D

Update: I did it. I bought the thing. I bought it at like half 10 this morning and proceeded to play it for 12 hours. I have wasted my day off work. :runaway:

I had immense fun.

But I was planning to be productive today (cleaning, writing, reading etc) and now all I have to show for my day is an emptier bank account and a virtual Mini Cooper that can outperform some supercars.

I’ve started a new RPG project, though it’s actually a remake of the game I was working on. I’m using RPG maker MV now as it does what I need it to and it’s quite versatile. It even has mouse and apparently touch screen support with the right plugins. :)

No clue but I do know it’ll work for anything with Mac or Windows. :P

Started tinkering about with playing Civilization VI again thanks to a certain Mew-avatared moderator who shall remain nameless.
