    That must have been one heck of a vasectomy to get him Vicodin.

    I just watched the final season about a week ago. I had never finished the show so I decided it was time to see how it ends. I actually really enjoyed the final season. The new doctors they added were a good new mix.

    Also...

    Unless this is a stylistic choice, has Mike ever not finished a comic before?

    Or rather, one heck of a vasectomy to GIVE him a sore throat. That does raise the question of how such an extreme painkiller would be needed for something like a sore throat. It must have been a REALLY sore throat.

    I like to think it was done deliberately to sell the idea of him as a drug addict.

    That is what I thought. Maybe they have done a DLC for this one.

    Tycho's description of how he lost the resolve to quit playing Inquisition sounds exactly like me with The Fade in the first Dragon Age. Well, I mean, the big difference is, he says everybody else likes whatever mission he's talking about, and I don't think anybody liked The Fade. I had heard enough about it before I got there, enough recollections accompanied by grimaces and groans, that I was determined to get through it just so that The Fade itself would not be the thing that "beat me" and made me quit playing. So I finished it, and then realized that my reserve of good will for the game had been exhausted in the accomplishment.

    I think I had what Mike had, although I've just been suffering through it without the aid of prescription drugs.

    He sold his colors. For more drugs.

    Which mission in DA:I was Tycho talking about?

    I don't know. He doesn't specify in the post and I haven't played the game so I am in no position to guess.

    Yeah I pretty much came here to see what mission he was talking about. Anyone got a guess on that?

    I was thinking maybe "The Ball" in Orlais. I forget the actual mission name.

    Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts, and yeah, that's what I was thinking too. It is functionally quite different from any other mission in the game. I loved it, but I can understand why other people wouldn't. Some folk on the boards have mentioned that it's actually stress inducing, with the timers involved.

    Still I hope he picks it back up after that, there's some cool stuff after!

    if it is that one, he's probably doing something asinine and pointless like trying to collect all the coins or something

    Dragon Age Inquisition is like, negative reinforcement for completionists

    it's a game that seems like it's trying to punish you for taking a mentality that you must COLLECT ALL THE THINGS, by making some of those tasks both arduous and detrimental to a fun gameplay experience and in some cases physically impossible to do

    I don't know if they're trying to run some kind of Fallout-esque Vault-Tec experiment on gamer mentalities or what here.

    I hope they use it as justification to switch the next Dragon Age inventory system over to something closer to ME3.

    What is with Mike seemingly always getting sick sometime around the New Year? There's this podcast, the Olive Garden food poisoning, and then this.

    The E3 ones from years back are the same way.

    I don't think the ones that he sketched during E3 count, of course he wouldn't be able to finish them. According to his post about Arts & Crafts he is just too sick to color, which is understandable.

    Or it might just be bad design.
