So. I started DA2 with the vague idea to romance Fenris, and what do I do, about halfway into the game?

Start a new file just so I can charm the pants off of Anders instead. I didn't even really like Anders in DA:A! Apparently the whole 'tortured by justice and increasingly paranoid' thing works for me far more.

Also, I just. Anders. I. I don't even know what happened and he's such a self-righteous, hypocritical prick at least half of the time and it only gets worse and you only see glimpses of the old Anders when he's chatting with Varric, but god. My heart.

Also, I find myself really loving Valkyria Chronicles II. People say the story in the first game was better, but I've never played that one and I've got a rather high tolerance for amusing high school antics anyway, so. Also I just really love the characters. I love that Avan is not only hot-blooded and idiotic, but also incredibly naive and genuinely a good person. I love that Zeri has his calm facade that can be cracked so easily, and that he doesn't feel above playing pranks and dirty tricks. I love that Cosette might be the ditzy blonde airhead, but she's also a good friend and NOT a love interest. I love Alexis, even if the issues surrounding that character are, uh, confusing me. cut for spoilers ) I love Eric and ship him with Avan like mad, which actually surprised me a lot since I was expecting to ship Avan with Zeri, but they work far better as snarky best friends to me. I love Rene and Magari and their friendship and how Magari is so open with her 'Rene is so nice! I love her!' I love Lavinia and her tanks, and Marion and her gun fetish. I am surprised at how much I like Helmut, though that might be because he is so obviously racist and the game doesn't gloss over it and both Zeri and Avan call him out on it. I love Reiner and Sigrid and their friendship (even if it is somewhat awkward because one of my (female) best friends in primary school was also called Sigrid).

In conclusion, I really love this whole class. Even Randy and his misfortune at Zeri's hands.

Let's see... Judging from the art cover the guy who looks as dumb as a brick is the hero, the innocent blond-haired blue eyed girl is the love interest/The Heart, and the guy with the glasses is the Lancer as well as a studious stick in the mud, and will probably go 'I'm trying to concentrate >:(' at least ten times. And if he doesn't do the shiny scary glasses thing at least once I'll eat my -

AAAAND right in the opening sequence. I guess you feel like obliging me, game. And another sidekick, sidekick, rich bitch, innocent ruler, evil blah blah. I can already see that this game is going to break all the character molds, you guys.

- So the hero's brother is dead? No way :(
- Ohhhh, it's 'classified information'. Thanks, that makes me feel so much better about it.
- Let me guess, the solution is to enroll in that military academy so that the information will suddenly be no longer classified.
- Blah blah, innocent blue-eyed girl is also ditzy and sweet and the peacemaker.
- 'I'm trying to concentrate >:(' CALLED IT
- Just saying though, that is one very hot 'shut up' look. Maybe it doubles as a 'come hither' look.
- Yeah yeah we got it the hero is a moron and also over-enthusiastic
- Passed all the exams quelle surprise
- Aaaand there we go, late for the first day at school! AS USUAL.
- ...ohey, the girl is late too. That doesn't happen quite as often.
- Insults coming from the classroom! I bet it's that rich bitch from the opening sequence.

Combat's nice though, if a bit confusing at first, but nice!
