Not Related In Any Way To Hogwarts

Kingdoms of Amalur: The Re-Re...ah, hell. Don't make me type that stupid title.

Anyway, KOA has been updated to include some sort of content -- not DLC -- centered around whatsername...the naked-adjacent Dark Elf. You know who I mean.

Anyway, I'll quote the news:

QuoteMany fantastic tales have been spun about the secretive Dokkalfar agent named Alyn Shir. ... now it is up to you to unravel one of them. Follow a series of clues and travel to a number of hidden locations across Amalur to procure a very delicate item left behind by the infamous assassin herself.But be warned: You are not the only one who wants to get their hands on this important and very personal piece.

• Revisit pivotal locations all across Amalur and explore secret hideouts
• Uncover lore of your former self and your special relation with Alyn Shir
• Embark on a scavenger hunt that pits you against the lowest of the low

And then there's a couple of screenshots. One is kind of bizarre, showing her head on a male body? I don't know. I don't WANT to know.

I'm not exactly compelled to reinstall the thing and re-re-experience it all over again, so...meh. Whatever. I will say though that the word "Dokkalfar" puts me in mind of two things, and always has:

1. Dan Aykroyd's "dickfer" joke in Spies Like Us.

2. The Wookalar monster that Tim Conway was obsessed with in The Private Eyes.

And, like Forrest Gump, that's all I have to say about that. ::)

In other news, I have not had the best experience getting mods running in DAI. I would go on a wall-of-text rant about every aspect of the experience, but I won't. You're welcome. However, I must point out that the EA desktop launcher thingy is a goddamn cancer. Here's to the day when the DA games are freed from DRM once and for all.
Feel like an alien...a stranger in an alien place.

Well, it's still installed on mine. So someday when I'm not too busy doing... something else -- meaning certainly not next week -- I'll give it a try. What is the worst that could happen? My head exploding? Well, that would be a contextual release.

Ooh, look, I'm turning into you :D

Hello Houston? The shit has hit the fan!
