Varric Rules

One of my commenters made me remember the coolest guy in modern video games.

      Every time you could turn to Varric and have him either bullshit you out of trouble or vastly inflate your reputation on the spot had me laughing so hard I had to pause the game. I really hope he makes it into DAIII since the repetitive battle areas in DAII hurts replay-ability IMHO.

      I was sad they excluded the part in the very end where Varric mentions to Hawke, “I left out the part about you and me.” Why?! He was the only character I actually wanted to pursue, mostly because he was the only one who didn’t jump down my throat about SOMETHING. Or be completely oblivious to danger (Merrill -______-)

    I freely admit that I have a giant crush on Varric. I have no shame, despite the chest hair and chain involved.

      On my second play though I rolled a femhawke and played the whole game as Varric with a chatty mage as his sidekick

        I dunno why, I think it’s something about someone who can always tell me stories and make me laugh.

  3. 3

    I would pay real money to learn Bianca’s back story – I wish that would have been a late game quest if Varric really liked you.

    1. 3.1

      I’d lay odds that there wasn’t really a backstory and it was all just bullshit he was stringing you along with. Seems a very varric thing to do

    2. 3.2

      The legacy DLC had some of the back story for Bianca.

        Hiding story from me in DLC?

    I’ve been replaying DAII the past week or so. Varric is so awesome. :)

    Varric’s so awesome. Hawke might be the leader, but Varric’s the real reason your little group manages to stay intact for 7 years. He’s this ultra cool dwarf who makes friends with everyone, and he takes care of his friends, despite how he likes to portray himself as this kind of arty slacker. And I like that.

    Merrill: How do you do it, living in the city without picking a side? Doesn’t it matter to you?
    Varric: Of course it does. That’s why I don’t take sides.
    Merrill: That doesn’t make any sense.
    Varric: I’ve got you and Aveline, Fenris and Anders. Hawke. Isabela.
    Varric: I’ve got friends in the Circle and drinking buddies in the templars. All of them matter.

    Hairy Chris, blah blah blah etc

    Urgh, DA2 was a bit of a letdown after the 1st one. Varric was quite good fun, though, but my vote for “coolest guy in modern video gaming” would have to go to Garrus from the Mass Effect trilogy… ;-)
    Hmm, there seems to be some similarity in naming conventions there, Bioware!

    An additional issue is that games can become serious because the name indicated most abundant in important focus on learning instead of amusement. Although, it comes with a entertainment part to hold the children engaged, each game might be designed to operate towards a particular skill collection or region, such because instructional numbers or research. Thanks for the article.
