    The golden skin is quite wonderful, too. I’ve seen a picture of that.

    I just wish that people found this sort of thing more appealing. I can accept that people are incredibly boring and have limited imaginations to a certain extent, but that they can gorge themselves on the same thing over and over for weeks without ever craving novelty or originality is baffling, sometimes. But I’m slowly coming to the conclusion that it’s like fast food. Nothing will beat proper food (which this is the equivalent of), and there are many obvious benefits to eating properly, but some people just love stuffing their face full of burger.

    And that’s what the triple-A industry seems to be right now, a face-full of trans fat-laden burger. Which doesn’t taste as good as proper food, isn’t as healthy for your mind and body as proper food is, and yet people are addicted to it and can’t stop eating the stuff. It is, after all, protein the powers the body rather than fat. Just cramming up on fat and high blood-sugar levels leads to low-powered brains, anyway.

    I suppose that people are trained to be unfit and love to be unfit, and this applies to entertainment as much as it does to food.

    Where are my hordes of animals/minions to slay with my giant sword, leaving them in puddles of blood? Where’s my kewl army with giant shoulderpads?” isn’t unlike “The hell is my burger?” and “Wut, where’s the oversexualised womens in sternum-busting armour?” is like “The hell did you do with my fries?” and “Where’s my faceless ebil to fight so I can be Teh Gud Guy??” is like “Gimme my damn milkshake!

    I could go on like this, I really could. There are so many overused fantasy tropes. But I won’t.

    After a certain point, I begin to relate to dieticians. Things like Dragon Commander would be good for your mind by engaging your imagination and taking you outside of your comfort zone, by presenting you with a very, very atypical fantasy world. No, it’s not the same old fantasy world of bizarrely violent animals and buxom wenches that you’ve been gorging yourself on for the past decade. This is actually good for you.

    See, that’s how I feel when I look at Dragon Age or Thief. It feels like metaphorically someone is trying to cram a “juicy” burger into my face. Whereas this is more like a delicious, well-balanced salad by comparison.

    Sigh.

    I got this for “free” funding Divinity: Original Sin on kickstarter, I think I’m more excited for this game than the game I laid my money down for.
