By now I'm sure most of you have settled on the most important question you'll answer today - which Pokemon starter to pick - but I'm looking ahead to Tuesday. That's when Bioware's Dragon Age II hits stores, and even with a couple of times through the demo, I'm still not sure which Hawke I'm going to play.
First, gender. My first instinct was to go with a HeHawke, but I enjoyed my demo run with SheHawke. Maybe it's the pixie cut, or just my thing for kick-ass ladies. After all, I wouldn't trade my Cdr. Tallulah Shepard in Mass Effect for anything. On the other hand, with if I pick a male I can play a big, gay Hawke, plus I appreciate that the man can grow a respectable beard.
As for class, I'm pretty sure I'm going to go for warrior. It's my usual pick - I prefer to be in the middle of the action than the edges. Plus, most of the DLC weapons and armor they're giving out ahead of the game seem to be designed for warriors. Being a mage seems fun, though, but I'll probably save that for another playthrough. For some reason, I rarely consider being a rogue; I think I have a pathological aversion to bows.
For those of you getting the game this week, have you decided which Hawke you're going to play? My decision may come down to seeing what I can come up with in the character creator - I'd hate to have to go through 40 hours with a fugly Hawke, male or female.
