Sadly, it looks as if Dragon Age: Inquisition won't run on my PC, so it'll be at least a couple of years before I get to play it. Unless my PC explodes again - and I could really do without that, given all the electrical goods failures and house repairs I had to pay for this year.

I was hoping it might run, but apparently my PC has a dual core processor rather than the needed quad core, and having found people with the same spec and model as me getting mocked on the internet for being too stupid to know they didn't meet the minimum game requirements, I'm not going to chance it.

Maybe I should finish off my third ME3 playthrough and then try playing Dragon Age 2?

Or I could try and vid some more...

Awww that's a shame :( Will you be dodging spoilers lefts and right, or do you not care for that sort of thing?

I'm currently torn on whether to try DA when I get home, or the new Aliens game. I also read about this really interesting war game, This War Of Mine, that looked tempting(also soulcrushing, heh, but maybe I'll flee to vidding to get a break from it then)

At least that's something, you can go a long way on other people's squee and enthusiasm. But yeah, being a part of something just as it's taking off is immensely satisfying.

PLAY ALL THE GAMES. Or, you know, vid. There's no bad option there! Although it is a bad situation that led to the necessity of the choice.

The other option is to play it on console. A second hand XBox 360 is about £70 right now but that'll only drop as fewer and fewer games are released for it. (Though that's probably in the region of what it'd cost you for a quad core processor too, so I mean, it may not be the years until you can afford a whole new computer setup, just the time until you can justify a partial upgrade.)

But seriously, the game's not going anywhere!

Plus hey, there's always the chance it'll be terrible! My record with Bioware's Controversial Endings is certainly erratic. (Dragon Age 2: hmmmmmmmm.... Mass Effect 3: SHUT UP I WILL DIE ON THE HILL OF DEFENDING IT.)

So perhaps it's wise to see how this all plays out first...

Of course! Be pretty mean of me to refuse to discuss a game with you that I got for you in the first place. ;)
