Dragon Age Inquisition: Gettin’ My Gamer Girl On!

gettingmygamergirlon_rockinrandommom

So the past two weeks have been kind of a lazy, yet productive time for me. I got a few personal things done that I needed to get squared away but during this time I really needed to zone out by getting my gamer girl on!

It started out as me thinking of my future YouTube channel and mulling over the different reviews I want to do. Of course one of my first reviews will be my take on Dragon Age: Inquisition. Yeah, I know, for all you gamer geeks out there, I am coming into this a bit late seeing as how the game is almost two years old already and won game of the year.

dragonagegameofyear_rockinrandommomAnywho, So what started out as my attempt to refresh some of my memory of the game so that I can portray an accurate assessment of my opinion, ended up with me geeking out and playing the game for days on end, completely ignoring other things. Being aware of this flaw, I always made sure the things that needed to get done, got done before I started my gaming binge, as I like to call it.

I am lucky, too, that my boys are old enough now that I have a bit more freedom to play but I always make sure my babies are taken care of and on the nights when their dad had them, oh it was on like Donkey Kong baby! I rocked out in my jammies, drinking lots of coffee so that I could stay up as late as my 39 year old body could stand, propped up on my couch with three comfy pillows, only getting up when I needed to use the little girl’s room. This, my friends, is me getting my gamer girl on!

I also had my notepad and pen next to me to write down notes for my review. See, it wasn’t all wasted, ha ha! However, this was more than just me needing to jot down notes and prepare for a review. I needed this time to zone out from the world. I barely got online, with the exception of the occasional ding I would get on my phone when someone sent me a tweet, or check an email or two. Mostly, though, I stayed away from the internet. I even stayed away from Cable TV.

Yes, I have missed the last two episodes of Game of Thrones and three episodes of Outlander. I even missed three or four episodes of Fear the Walking Dead… That’s what DVR is for! I have a lot of catching up to do so no spoilers please! That’s another reason I’ve stayed away from Facebook in particular. I don’t want any spoilers of my favorite TV shows!

As I said earlier though, the past two weeks weren’t all fun and gaming. I finally got my student loan stuff worked out. I am also finally getting rid of my old car because it’s just too broken for me to fix it. There were some housing issues that I had to deal with. On the plus side, I finally got my resume looking pretty good! All is well but I needed a breather.

Back to my game. So, yes I use gaming as a way to escape this world sometimes. It doesn’t happen that often anymore as I have found several other ways to zone out. However, this time I had a date with my characters in Dragon Age: Inquisition. They gave me the solace I needed to help me hit that refresh button on my soul when the world just gets to be a little too much.

In Dragon Age: Inquisiton I can be one of four races – Dalish Elf, human Noble, Qunari Tal Vashoth, Dwarven Carta. Within these classes are races. I can be a warrior, a mage, or a rogue either male or female. I have two of every single character, both male and female! This game allows me to step into a new world where I get to fight dragons, use magical armor and weapons, have a romance (or two), and save the world! Below is the video that I absolutely love and sums up the game perfectly! The band who sings the song is called The Phantoms! If you like this song, be sure to check them out as well!

    1. I used to read books all the time then I had kids and just can’t get enough quiet to concentrate on one anymore lol!

    1. It’s amazing how I find the time but my kids are also older. I have a teen and a preteen, both who do their own thing. This leaves me to get bored easily then I play, lol! It’s a great game if you want to tell your husband about it. Thanks so much for stopping by!😊

  1. I love to hang out and play video games too. However my game is World of Warcraft. I started playing it all the way back in 2006. My husband and me had our first date because I was a gamer and shared that interested. Two kids and ten years later we still both love to play it. I sometimes play the game to get my mind off of my problems too. It is so cool that I found another gamer mom.

    1. Oh yes! We are few and far between it seems… Or maybe we are just hidden lol! Glad to find you as well:-)

    1. Love that show! I’m actually anxious about the new season starting in the fall. I don’t know if I want to know who dies😳

    1. I sometimes play the sims too. Lucky for me even though it can be addicting I get bored after a while so I move on but the great thing is I get to go back whenever I get the hankering for it lol!

  2. My hubby writes music for gaming and is just finishing up a year’s uni course in it – so I have been introduced to the world of gaming this year big style! I love that you have your nights in with jammies and coffee – though I’d probably have the wine out! Sounds like a great way to unwind – go you.

    1. Thank you! That’s so awesome that your husband writes song lbs for video games though! I admire that! Sometimes I have the wine too it depends on my
      Mood lol!

  3. I’m not a huge gamer because I fear once I get into a game, I’ll get too addicted… unlike, I have little discipline. lol

    1. I can totally understand as gaming is addicting and games like Dragon Age are very long. The game is two years old and I’m just now talking about it because I have to balance gaming with parenting and other life stuff, lol! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. Haha, I absolutely love that at 39, you went full teenager! It’s great to have something you enjoy so much, my friend is a gamer. I was always so bad at it, get panicky and fall off ledges and things! Thanks for linking up! #bigpinklink

    1. Isn’t it great!!! Sometimes you have to get in touch with your inner teenager and just go with with it, LOL!

    1. I don’t have PS3 or I would definitely try that game. Love the show! I don’t think I’ve heard of Kingdoms of Amular though. I’ll have to check that out!

  5. That looks like a great game. Like Dawn, I haven’t had a chance to get my gamer girl on for years now. I used to love playing *shall I admit it…* World of Warcraft. Ekkk…. Ok it’s out there now. I had to stop playing when time wouldn’t permit anymore, and once I bagged Mr Button, it was a distant memory. I completely get what you mean about switching off and disappearing into another world. That’s what I loved about it. I still flirt with the idea of going back to play, but I know that there is no time. #FartGlitter x

    1. I never got into that game mostly because I knew that I would get addicted and would have a hard time stepping away, lol. I recently saw they made a movie about that game and I am looking forward to watching it! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. Wow this looks impressive! I have to admit that I haven’t been able to get my game on at any point in the last couple of decades, but games really seem to have come on since my primitive gaming days! It’s great that you have found a way to escape and recharge.
    Thanks for linking up with #fartglitter x

    1. Yeah the games have changed a lot since I was a kid but they’ve only gotten better in my opinion. My boys live to play Mario Cart so the fact that they like something I used to love as a kid gives me the warm fuzzies lol! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. Thank you! This game is one of my favorites and I needed something to help take my mind off of the stressors I was having but now I’m ready to start conquering the things I had set out to do in regards to my writing and setting up my YouTube channel. Thanks so much for stopping by and reading!
