Cat Context 81: DAI: Trespasser, or it’s actually relevant to talk about Dragon Age now

cat-context-vertical

This week Liore, Arolaide, and special guest Vajra talk about wacky hi-jinks in Grand Theft Auto Online, fighting off dinosaur invaders in ARK: Survival Evolved, and … okay yes Dragon Age but it’s topical! We promise!

The final DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition was released on Tuesday, which means not even Liore can object to talking about the game. (Note: there are spoilers for the base game in this discussion, but no Trespasser DLC spoilers.) Aro lorks out — lore + dork, a word invented just for her — about Codex entries, while Vajra and Liore smile and nod. Everyone gets back to solid conversational ground in a discussion about good and bad facial hair in DAI. Plus, a Trespasser companion death pool: who will die a heroic death?! Is it Iron Bull? Because if it is, Liore is going to have a cow, man.

Vajra has been playing Grand Theft Auto Online. Liore gets all hipster and calls it “emergent gameplay”, while Vajra tells stories of crazy encounters with hackers and game anarchists. Are game environments like that actually fun, or do they just make good stories after the fact? Speaking of emergent gameplay (sorry), Mr. Aro is fighting off air-dropped dinosaurs in Ark: Survival Evolved. In light of all this the gang addresses a very important question: would you rather unavoidably lose all your inventory in a game, or be forced to play as a sentient toilet? Let it never be said that Cat Context avoids the tough topics.

Also, Liore is all about the dwarf sex! Aro has strong feelings about dinosaur species! Vajra speculates on the motivation of skeletons in Diablo 3!

    One of these days I will actually get around to playing Dragon Age: Inquisition. One day…

    This was a pretty fun episode! Vajra was a good stand-in for Elly. I loved his tale of becoming a toilet in GTA.

    Aro’s comment about “at least it’s not more zombies” made me laugh out loud because I know that feeling so well. My pet tank loves his survival games and has played pretty much every zombie survival game that came out in the past year at some point. At least the dinosaurs in Ark make it different! Also, he keeps asking me to name them…

    Vajra’s story time should become a regular feature on the podcast!

    I always love these podcasts. They’re the highlight of my week when I find they’re available. Vajra standing in for Elly was great. And I completely agree with Muspel: Vajra’s Storytime should be a regular segment.

    Listening to Aro go on and on about DA:I makes me want to get it even more, but I’m holding out for that “GOTY Edition” that’ll come out with all the DLC sometime around Christmas. :P
