First off, hi to my new flist members! If you didn't spot it in the tags, here's my friending/introduction post.

Secondly, I have now finished Dragon Age: Origins. Twice. Short but sweet spoilers. )

Thirdly, I'm torn between writing porn and catching up on comments.

...

Sorry flist, on this one occasion, I do believe the porn wins out. It's for your own good!

emeraldembers: (Sam - hey guys what's going on?)
Dragon Age: Origins is eating my life EVEN IN THE ENDING AREA.

Cut for SPOILARS )

1) Who wants some crack porn? Because voyeur!Crowley/exhibitionist!Sam is pretty much as cracky as it gets (thx [personal profile] spacefragments for the epic prompt, and also for the MENACING BANANA which is still one of the best things I have ever seen with these eyes of mine.

2) Final reminder on help_chile given the auctions end tomorrow, or, well, technically later today now (March 10th 4pm midnight GMT); all English fic offerings; my fic thread; my podfic thread.

3) OREO CUPCAKES OMG YES. Okay, I cheated and cobbled together about three different recipes after one of you guys mentioned these a while back because I like to take the laziest, easiest route, but here's how I made mine (AND THEY WERE AWESOME, I know this because it's a rule that my sister's birthday is a mid-Lenten break because otherwise she wouldn't get birthday cake AND THAT WOULD BE WRONG so I got to taste them):

Recipe time! )

Oh, yes, and one last thing!

4) Dear everyone on my flist who's ever mentioned Dragon's Age: Origins - THANK YOU. I just bought the game on a whim and I'm SO IN LOVE, even with Alistair who I'd set out thinking NO I WILL NOT FALL FOR YOU LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES and then he was such a dork and I was all ASDJLASDJFLA I LOVE YOU I CAN'T HELP IT so I'm glad I rolled a girl this time as hopefully at some point I can persuade him to make with the whoopie. HE IS SO CUTE. I WANT ONE. When he woobies I want to hold him but I want to hug him even more when he's being all silly and and damnit, aww. I EVEN HEAL HIM BEFORE I HEAL THE OTHER CHARACTERS. I DON'T DO THAT. EVER. EVEN IN WORLD OF WARCRAFT WHEN I HAVE PERSONAL ATTACHMENTS TO PEOPLE IN THE GAME. Congratulations Bioware, you made a role playing game where I'm actually role playing.

Also, my female human mage character has stomach muscles and a butt as well as enormous knockers, which is rather awesome. She looks like she could actually fight, I'm shocked and surprised.

Slowly, slowly, slowly but surely starting to come down from the epic, epic high of Christmas day now, aided by contracting a stinking cold ;), but I'm just still - :D. About most everything, really.

Thoughts on Doctor Who; Spoilers! )

Thoughts on Sherlock Holmes; Possibly vaguely spoilery. )

Thoughts on Batman: Arkham Asylum; OMG OMG OMG. BEST GAME I'VE PLAYED IN ABOUT FIVE YEARS IF NOT MORE. Seriously, everyone should own a copy of this game. It's an open secret that for a girl gamer, I actually really, really suck at games, and have an incredible affection for games that cater for people who are as sucky as me ;). Adventure games in general, Bioshock, Legacy of Kain etc - if a game looks after me, I will treasure it. The rarity is a game that makes you look really really good even if you suck, and for that reason, Batman: Arkham Asylum ranks right up alongside Devil May Cry for me now, because any game that makes you want to put down the controller, stand up, pose dramatically and yell "I AM BATMAN!" after a victory is - yeah. Gameplay; amazing. Learning curve; masterfully designed. Music; fairly neutral, doesn't get on your nerves but doesn't especially stand out either. Graphics; a little flawed if you don't have HD to get the full glory out of them and slight syncing issues between voices and visuals, but otherwise, glorious - and the backgrounds and building designs are wonderful, with a slightly comic-book feel that really works. Voices; fantastic, including the bit-parts which is a real rarity. Sound design is good. Plot so far is a stroke of genius because it feels like a genuine Batman story. Honestly, the whole package is virtually flawless - it's been crafted with love and attention and it really, really shows.

Basically, if you don't have this game already and you have a system that will play it, get it.

OH MY GOD
