Mom: I can’t believe how beautiful this is.
Reg: Right?!
Grandma: What are you two watching?
Reg: Video game trailer.
Mom: Is that a qunari?
Reg: Probably.
Grandma: [with so much disdain it’s palpable] You enjoy these things?
Mom: I’m going to convince the horned guy to sleep with me.

I’ve convinced Mom she must do a four-month speed run of the last half of DA2. We might not share all her adventures, but I’ll keep you guys updated on what big choices she makes!

Also, Grandma now lives with us. Grandma thinks video games rot your brain.

Reg: Mother, come watch this with me!
Mom: What?
Reg: Inquisition pre-alpha demo thing.
Mom: I thought you weren’t going to show me this until I finish the other game.
Reg: I wasn’t. I’m weak.
Mom: Oh, that’s gorgeous. That landscape is gorgeous. […] Can you set—you can set fire to the boats! […] Everyone’s dead! They killed everyone! [thoughtful pause] You can kill everyone…
Reg: Maybe I shouldn’t let you play this game.
Mom: Do you think I can pit everyone against everyone else and watch them destroy each other while Varric, Cassandra, and—what’s the mage’s name?
Reg: Vivienne.
Mom: While the four of us sip cosmos on a beach?
Reg: …no I really don’t think that will work.
Mom: That was a dragon! I need to finish the Hawke game soon. I love how excited everyone is for this game.
Reg: Are you excited?
Mom: I hope that’s a rhetorical question, sweetie.

So hopefully she’ll be picking up DA2 again in the near future (I think she will in the next week or so)!

Then we’ll both plunge right into DAI when it comes out. For the sake of your tumblrs, those of you who want to avoid spoilers should blacklist the tag reg’s mom plays dai. When we get closer to the DAI release, I’ll be sure to reevaluate what tags we use and give you guys ample warning.

Is this blog dead? Because that would be so, so sad :(

Mom and I are in the process of dealing with rather firmly entrenched cases of Lyme Disease, so we haven’t been gaming much at all - we’ve been pretty sick D8

That said, she still has to finish DA2, and she will! Because eventually we’ll have DA3, too!

But for now, we’re resting and focusing on getting better.

Reg: I haven’t heard from you in a few hours. You done for the day? Did you visit with anyone?
Mom: got distracted by teh arena
Mom: u no how it is
Mom: shootin aliens

We will, however, have stories to share about the crew hangouts tomorrow!

Mom: shot brooks
Reg: You can do that?
Mom: y
