Yes and no, TBH. I've made it clear how I feel about those medieval-era set RPGs, and unless that Darkspawn bollocks is one part of the story I have to say I am not too keen on it. At least while the plot is very much on rails at least you get to choose your own allies for your army because were it humans/dwarves/elves I would have yawned myself to sleep. So points for diversity, to a degree.
But, OTOH, I rather enjoy the random conversations between party members, it gives them more depth than just being a meatshield. The bickering between the witch and the redhead when both fancy you is bloody hilarious and I find it rather funny that, unless I missed something, the witch, who doesn't seem to want to move things along is so very possessive and snappy. Although, she does agree and like my arsewipe prick decisions, so eh, I might go for the redhead, but maybe not, guess we'll see where the mood takes me. I would rather have them both, because having some variety on the figurative menu breaks the tedium.
Alistair's earbashing does get slightly annoying (hello, I am a man who does understatements) and this guy is banished to the party camp forever. Thankfully Sten is a more than capable tank to take his place.
