Well, it definitely appears that I've hit a wall here. So I've decided to put the Dragon Age project on hold. At some point I'll finish the game and then import a save into Dragon Age 2, which was the game I really wanted to cover, but at the same time, I think my style is more suited to games that actually take themselves seriously, which doesn't really apply to this IP. I think BioWare has already shown it's pretty good at making fun of its own games.
At this point, I'm strongly leaning toward choosing Okami as the next game I play, but at the moment I've been consumed by the new World of Warcraft expansion, so who knows when that will happen. I could try to cover some of the WoW stuff I've been doing, but Blizzard is also pretty good at poking fun at its own games, so we'll see what happens.
