and when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for awhile. because you’re evil. and you smiling like that generally doesn’t indicate anything good. i wouldn’t even call that smiling. it’s more like. smirking
… Aaand friendly remember that we’ve never had as many periods as we do now, since most of us don’t actually spend our time being pregnant or lactating, with resulting amenorrhoea.
Truth. A hunter-gatherer diet for the mother, and unrestricted nursing around the clock for the child, leads to years of lactational amenorrhoea.
There are a few other reasons why pregnancy and birth are so dicey for humans, iirc. (I’m not looking up sources, so I may not be explaining this quite right.) We’ve got such big damn brains, and we insist on walking upright, so nature had to make some compromises between fetal size and maturity on the one hand, and the size and mechanics of the mother’s pelvis on the other. Humans are born half-baked, compared to other mammals, but if we gestated longer, there’s no way we’d fit through the birth canal. As it is, it’s a pretty tight fit, and that’s why late pregnancy and labor can be so fucking uncomfortable.
Such hard work, but worth it, the vast majority of the time.
In a forthcoming AusGamers interview with Aussie expat and BioWare producer Cameron Lee, it was revealed the normally ambiguous approach to in-game romance in the realm of sexuality would be receiving a more specific option allowing for more complex relationships.
"The romances are more complex both in type of romances going forward and how you go through that romance," Lee explained to us. "The different types of sexual orientation of the different kinds of characters around you is also more complex than in previous games. I think there’s going to be a lot more realistic… realistic… you know what I mean — anyway, more engaging and more involved than in previous games. That’s definitely the goal, and we are definitely going to go out there with some characters just being one sexual orientation. And that previously wasn’t the case. The real world reflects that so we’re going to make a game that reflects that as well."
Dragon Age has always been known as an open and ambiguous beast where sexuality is concerned, and romance will continue to play a major role, only in more complex form built from the real-world. Hopefully this speaks volumes of the evolution and maturity of the series where Inquisition is concerned.
We’ll have more from Cameron Lee soon, so stay tuned.
A bit pricey than the rest I found but I trust them greatly since I ordered a Gakupo nendoroid from them and the box was in perfect condition, fantastic tight packaging. (Note: You add 2,000 extra yen for shipping/handling )
Again, never used them so I don’t know how packages look like upon arrival. They are the cheapest I’ve seen so far for pre-order though, 3,500 yen before shipping costs. (Note: You are charged when the order is ready for shipment so make sure you have your money by then!!)
