Thinking about it, I now recall that I used mods to change the appearance of most of DA:O. I modded:
- Alistair
- Morrigan
- Leliana
- Wynne
- Sten
(no mods for Oghren or Zevran because I don't like them; not because they look any good)

In DA2 though, the only character I modded was Aveline (I've spoken prior of my opinion of her chin/jaw)

I guess the DA2 characters did look better.

In some cases for me, it was just little tweaks that made an improvement instead of complete overhauls.  For instance, a change of hairstyle for Morrigan or giving Leliana's hair a deeper shade of red made a world of difference.   It was the same case with Aveline where removing her headband and giving her some fringe with a mod made her worlds better, even with the lantern jaw of justice.

More often than not, it was their outfits that I enjoyed playing with.  There are quite a few outfits out there that make things a lot less drab in Origins, Awakening, and II.  Especially Fenris, because nothing says "badass glowbug elf" like a long coat with gauntlets.

Nintendo CEO says recovered enough from surgery to resume work -- All Games Beta (via: Reuters)

"Japanese video game maker Nintendo Co's Chief Executive Satoru Iwata said on Wednesday he had recovered well enough from surgery in June to remove a tumour in his bile duct to enable him to resume his regular work duties."

I don't think he said 'everyone'...

He was implying it with the tone I get from his message at least.

Person whose tone is constantly misinterpreted, misinterprets tone.

You're fun Ygg. haha.

They more or less announced that the last two avengers cast will feature people other than the regulars in the limelight.

It doesn't bother me that they're releasing a timeline of when to expect things, and that's nothing new.

That started with the new Star Wars trilogy, which sucked, and continued with LoTR and The Hobbit. LoTR ruled and The Hobbit is great fun.

Seeing the Infinity War come to life will be great because that was the ONLY complete comic compendium I had as a kid. I think Earth-X was the other one I got eventually.

I very much agree with this vid actually, still on the fence about the expansion.

There's also the ever persisting problem regarding aging and actor death. The longer movie makers wait, the more likely the stars of the first couple of movies either age out of their roles or pass away.

See also: The early 90s Addams Family movies.

Tearaway, if you're cool with platformers, though it is getting a PS4 update.
Soul Sacrifice probably.
Ragnarok Odyssey maybe?
Also a bunch of indie games like Entwined and Fez.
Dragon's Crown.
Army Corps of Hell, but most opinions of it seem mixed.

Same here. Although I played the games several times on 360 before I played a modded version on PC.

Keep is being released soon right? Is there a release date?

The oracle of SHAREHOLDERS AND BOTTOM LINE *scary music.*

Seriously though, while I love what they're doing with the movies and that they aren't totally tone-deaf to their fans, Marvel is still a business. Building that hype machine might seem exhausting, but it also establishes a comfortable framework to build their business forecasts around. I'd imagine it's 100% a business choice.

This. 

Those dates are probably just out there in order to tell investors when they should expect to get their dumptruck full of money.

Also, as we all know all too well, deadlines like this are missed on the reg in the entertainment industry, so even though I'll skip most of these because I've about had it with the bastardization of the comic book industry (or at least the idealized version of it that I had in my head as a youth) I won't hold my breath for the ones I'm actually looking forward too.

(Still waiting on that Steel sequel...)

I don't speak for the other staff members. :-)

You can speak for me any day, Yeager.  I agree on all points.

There's one other thing I think I can add.  Scoring things is the worst... but that's the form that reviews take across all media.  As has been said, we've discussed eliminating scores a number of times, and we've also discussed changing our ratings scale in a number of ways.  But if we do, then when sites like Metacritic add our review into the rest, they interpret the review and put their own score on it.  That is, if we go with "good," "neutral," and "bad," they might choose to call those "80," "50," and "30."  But that's not what we meant at all!  Also, it means that games like Diablo II would end up with the same score as a game like Mugen Souls, which is worthy of being called "good," but isn't remotely in the same class as Diablo II (or Yeager's examples, which I also love).

We've also discussed eliminating our categories and simply giving a game an overall score.  That bypasses the issue of our overall score getting misrepresented on aggregator sites, but we feel like it creates a different issue.  Doing this takes away our ability to tell readers at a quick glance "this game looks pretty bad, but it has an awesome story, and it's really worth playing."
