Spoilers for…Skellige party clothing? The Chasind robes in Dragon Age: Origins? Not really any spoilers.

Feminina:

I was thinking we should really just talk about fashion all the time. We need to play more appropriately focused games. Although, sadly, I can’t find anything on Amazon in the PS4 games category with the keywords ‘fashion’ or ‘romance.’ Siiiiigh. The world isn’t keeping up with our awesomeness.

Where’s that game we want, that’s pretty much all balls, mysteries, dressing up and romancing people? I would SO play that.

Butch:

Actually, I’d play that, too.

Don’t judge.

Feminina:

Of course you would! That game would be amazing! Damn it, if I knew how to code I’d make it myself, that’s how much I already want to play it even though it doesn’t exist. It could have mysteries and clues (and no annoying LA Noire driving) and fancy clothes and parties and romance and the occasional excuse to set something on fire. And loot. Lots of loot. It would be the best thing ever.

Butch:

It would. Could some of the hot women be sorceresses? Just because?

Speaking of fashion, I have a “trophy” screenshot of “Equip a full set of witcher gear” that’s the INVENTORY screen! RELATIVE fashion!

Feminina:

Our game will allow all kinds of characters, including hot sorceresses and brooding guys with exoskeletons and troubled pasts. We’ll have something for every taste!

Where do you even see trophies? We must have notifications turned off, or they’re extremely subtle, because I don’t think I’ve ever noticed one. (Or Mr. O’ got them all first, and it only notifies you once?). Which is OK, they can be distracting and don’t generally add that much to the story experience, but it only just occurred to me that as far as I know I’ve never received a single trophy in this game.

Mr. O’ has, he was looking at going for platinum at one point, but I…just haven’t seen them.

Butch:

Well, you have to have the notifications on. Then, when you get one, it pops up in the upper left bit of the screen with a little ding. But yes, as you play on the same PSN account, then “you” can only win them once, and if Mr. O’ is way ahead of you, he’s going to get the notifications.

They do not come fast and furious in this game, but I think I must have, now, maybe 15 or 16?

If you go to your collection of screenshots, then the ones that got taken cuz of a trophy will have a little trophy icon next to them.

Feminina:

OK, yeah, that makes sense. He did pretty much everything before I did, so he would have gotten the notifications, since this game doesn’t recognize separate playthroughs. Ah well. I’ll live without the validation of trophy dings.

You can see why I need the validation of wearing the emperor’s stolen clothes on every occasion, though, as a substitute. Gotta get validation somewhere.

Butch:

Ah, see, I wore Yen’s clothes. And Geralt said “The things we do for…..what is she to me?”

Right on, Geralt.

Feminina:

I put on those clothes, but they looked super goofy, and they weren’t black and white! They didn’t match Yen! I think I got an XP bonus for wearing black and white. Also, I looked slightly less goofy. I was a bit surprised not to get any dirty looks considering the formerly-emperor’s clothes have the Nilfgaardian arms right on them and Skelligers are not wild about Nilfgaard, but I guess people could tell they were stolen, and appreciated my sticking it to the man.

Either that or they weren’t programmed to notice, but I prefer my interpretation.

Butch:

They weren’t black and white, no. But I liked them.

I can’t believe someone referred to Yen as an “Orca” who wears black and white. Really? She. Is. Hot.

Like the alternate look. The alternate look is good.

Feminina:

Hey, man, there’s no accounting for tastes. Not everyone loves sorceresses as much as you do. And orcas ARE black and white. Although so are magpies.

I suppose it shows greater respect for her power to compare her to a fierce beast that devours seals, than to a bird that collects shiny objects. This person was probably trying to be nice.

Butch:

While it is so that not everyone likes hot sorceresses, she is hardly overweight. Slim. She is slim.

Feminina:

Well, orcas aren’t overweight either. They’re perfectly designed to plunge gracefully through the seas like terrifying missiles of death. Terrifying missiles of death that have little patience for fat jokes.

Butch:

Yeah, they gotta lay off the waistline of sorceresses.

Morrigan wouldn’t stand for that shit.

Feminina:

Morrigan doesn’t really strike me as someone who gives a rat’s ass about what people think of her waistline. But we do all have our hidden insecurities.

Butch:

She doesn’t have to give a rats ass. Just keep wearing that outfit, girl.

Feminina:

Which is just about big enough to cover a rat’s ass…hahahahahaha, the jokes really write themselves.

I was also going to say “which is possibly made out of a rat’s ass,” but honestly that’s not her outfit, that’s the weird grungy fur thing I picked up in the marshes in DAO and wore for a while myself, because it had good AC even though it was ridiculous.

Butch:

I missed a grungy fur thing? Shit.

Feminina:

Yeah, I think it was the Chasind robes? I didn’t get them in the marsh, actually, I think it was in the wilds. Anyway, they were totally skimpy (mysteriously more so when worn by a female character) and made of leather and mangy hair and the description said they had a strange odor, but…AC.

Magical, “aim right here at the exposed skin on my chest, please” AC!

Butch:

I tell ya I’m so playing every bioware game until the end of time as a woman. The things I miss.

Of course, had I played DAO that way, no Morrigan…….
