It’s the end of January and I haven’t been posting much. I recovered from a busy holiday season and then I was in a car accident, with a bike, two weeks ago. But as you might have seen, two types of posts have been posted consistently since 2015 started: character creation videos and screenshots on Saturdays. I wanted to add some visual spice to my blog and this is just the beginning. I have more plans and one of them is to post on a more regular basis.
The character creation videos are a for personal research. Character customization and development has always interested me for a long time. I recorded about two dozen videos already and they’ll be uploaded to my YouTube account and shared here later. I will use these videos later for a more extensive article/essay on character creation in (MMO)RPGs.
I have also written down a small to-do list of things I want achieve in Guild Wars 2 (post is up now). With the expansion, Heart of Thorns, coming later this year, it’s an excellent time to complete some things of old and start getting ready for the new content. Are you excited? I am.
Besides that I still want to complete some games from my backlog. I want to complete all the DLC of Dragon Age: Origins, one or two visual novels (Fading Hearts and Always Remember Me) and a few indie games from bundles. One game I want to finish is Faerie Solitaire. I’m about a quarter in and I’ll keep playing it in between things. Another one is Evoland. I’m stuck halfway through the game and I think when I’m pasted that point, I’ll be able to finish it.
I have no ambitions in League of Legends beyond just playing with friends and enjoying (mostly) friendly ARAM games.
I tested Nvidia shadowplay with the character creation of Dragon Age: Inquisition. I used the default high settings and this is the raw video uploaded to YouTube without editing.
It’s the complete character creation of the a female human noble. I tested all the settings and you can see all of the options for customization.
What do you think of the quality? Do you have any tips for improvement?
And do you want to see more Dragon Age: Inquisition?
