Story
In Dragon Age: Origins the survival of humanity rests in the hands of those chosen by fate. You are a Grey Warden, one of the last of an ancient order of guardians who have defended the lands on the continent of Thedas throughout the centuries. Betrayed by a trusted general in a critical battle, you must hunt down the traitor and bring him to justice. As you fight your way towards the final confrontation with an evil nemesis, you will face monstrous foes and engage in epic quests to unite the disparate peoples of a world at war. A romance with a seductive shapeshifter may hold the key to victory, or she may be a dangerous diversion from the heart of your mission. To be a leader, you must make ruthless decisions and be willing to sacrifice your friends and loved ones for the greater good.
Gameplay
Dragon Age: Origins is a 3D oriented RPG based in a dark, heroic, fantasy realm where moral choices have a lasting impression on the people you meet, the members of your own party and the world around you. The inclusion of subtitle "Origins" in the game's title refers to the six unique origin stories available to new heroes as a new game begins. Each of these has an impact on the player's motivations and his or her experience, and renders a unique prelude, path, and possible ending(s) to the game. There are many different endings to the game based on the origin story of the character and the choices you make as you play through the game. The game features three character classes--warrior, mage, and rogue--and three races of being--Human, Elf or Dwarf--that can assume these classes. Although most game elements, such as weapons, magic, etc., are available to any character, each class and race has different strengths, abilities and affinities which lend themselves to better utilizing different elements.
Dragon Age: Origins is a single player game based on party-based gameplay and combat where the player can join, control and quest with up to three non-player characters (NPC). Players can also quest alone if they so choose, but with the chance of survival are slim. Convincing NPCs to join you, and treating them well may be necessary depending on the varying sentiments between the player and the NPC, or between the NPC's in the party based on the chosen history written into the origin story accepted at the beginning of the game. This uncertainty allows for a variety of possible dynamics within the party ranging from open hostility, all the way to romance. The game progresses in real-time via a pause-and-play tactical combat system that allows the player to check inventory levels, equip a character, etc. in a slight vacuum. Additional features found in the game include: a combination of a standard loot system and a currency system based on gold silver and copper; advanced character customization functionality; the use of poison, traps and herbalism; dual-wielding skills; and "spell combos," which allow players to chain together different spells to create a unique effects.

This is a set of figures my Mom bought for me in 1980 when I was eight years old. My brother had a picked out a similar set called Fighting Men. He was cool and made sure to include me in his discovery of D&D figures avaliable at our local toy store. He knew I liked Wizards and pointed the Specialists Box out to me. The wizard displayed on the box looked splendid in his red star spangled robes and pointy hat. I was unable to open the box before purchase but upon getting the lid off I saw instantly I hadn't gotten what I wanted. All the same, I enjoyed them for what they were. I still liked action figures for years after getting these guys but this definitively marked the end of my playing carefree with toys. I got the idea other kids would make fun of me for playing with toy figures at my age. Probably because I had so few kids my age to play with and too many older kids that I didn't get along with. It was also a difficult time for me since my parents had recently divorced and I was lost in what was going on with my life. My brother and I played a lot of D&D in the days ahead but we didn't really know how to incorperate figures so they just languished in their box during games. At one point, I tried to paint one of them but it was a bit of a disaster as I had no idea what I was doing. I used lime green testers model airplane paint on the little gnome guy. It looked so bad I scrubbed him clean with my Mom's nail polish before it even dried. I have painted quite a few minis since then that came out pretty well but I have never gone back to paint these guys. After so many years, I probably wouldn't recognize them painted.

This time, I couldn't find the box so I used the 'covering the film with your hand method'. Didn't work the greatest....I still love this photo though. And this little boy.

To Catch a Thief
A RETIRED CAT BURGLAR SEES FIREWORKS WITH AN AMERICAN HEIRESS ON THE RIVIERA.

This minor 1955 work by Alfred Hitchcock, one of the lighter entries of his creative peak in the 1950s, is still imbued with the master's stock themes of shared guilt and romantic ambivalence. It is also hardly lacking in Hitchcockian cinematic inventiveness, such as a famous, often-imitated sequence in which some smooching between stars Cary Grant and Grace Kelly is intercut with a fireworks show that just happens to be going on outside in a Riviera setting. Grant plays a reformed cat burglar who is suspected of reviving his trade, though he knows someone else is using his old methods. A very enjoyable experience, but don't get this confused with Hitchcock's other Cary Grant film of that decade, which was a masterpiece: North by Northwest. --Tom Keogh
