Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful

DA2 whiting up?

DA2 Hawke


I'm avoiding as much as possible about DA2, as I prefer going into games knowing as little as possible.  I like to be surprised, but I am still mega curious.  So when someone mentioned something about more characters announced, I finally peeked at the DA2 official site this morning (not too many spoilers on there compared to forums etc.)

And I noticed something about Isabela...  Now, it's not like I particularly like or dislike this character as I don't know her well (she had - what?  four lines in the last game?), but one thing I did like about her in DA2 was that she had a lovely Rivaini skin tone - like DA:O's handsomest (imo) man, Duncan.

It's not often you see non-white people in games anyway, (I'm excluding badass huge black soldier trope from that, hopefully you understand why) never mind D&D type RPGs, so it was good to see her.

Anyway - one thing I noticed on the official site's page for Isabela was a desktop picture of her.  Except - there's something wrong with it,,,

I try not to be too grumpy about this sort of thing, I really do, as I know it's the chip on my shoulder... but seriously - what the fuck Bioware, what the fuckity fuck?

what. And she's not just white in the desktop, she's porcelain pale. "Well this character has darker skin in-game, so for the desktop pic let's make her blindingly white. I don't see how this could reflect badly on us at all!"

I don't feel so bad in my rage now - you're right at how stupendously pale she is. Silly Bioware marketing!
