Major geek and web goddess, Felicia Day. Is there anything she does that doesn’t make us fall completely, hopelessly in love with her? An avid gamer, she created and stars in the best web series on the planet, The Guild, she’s been the adorable yet tragic love of Dr. Horrible in Joss Whedon’s musical web series and she’s one of the best reasons to keep tuning in to the final seasons of SyFy’s Eureka.
Day recently combined her nerdy passions again with the new web miniseries, Dragon Age: Redemption, starring her own original character. That character, Tallis, is also appearing in the Dragon Age DLC, Mark of the Assassin and guess whose voicing her? Yup, Ms. Day. She also did motion capture and facial scanning for the video game role, which is a total first for the Dragon Age franchise.
So, if your a fan of the Dragon Age series, and are totally in love with Felicia (like, who isn’t?) then October 11th is your Day (heh, see what I did there, so0 clever). Dropping October 11th is the new DLC, Mark of the Assassin in which Hawke, the player-character meets the elven assassin, Tallis, as well as the premiere of the six-part miniseries, Redemption, which will air weekly from there on out.
Kotaku had a chance to visit with Day as she demoed the new DLC. And apparently, Day is as in love with herself as we are,
… as she played, Day always took the flirty options when speaking to Tallis. As she put it, “Of course I romance myself. I’ve always said, if I had to make out with my clone, I would.”
Those familiar with the Dragon Age games know a lot of the fun comes from developing romantic relationships between your character and the NPCs. Oh, who am kidding, the point is to see how many of the NPCs you can have sex with, so whether or not Tallis is fuckable character is yet to be seen. Fanboys and girls across the gaming nation are praying for a yes.
Check out Kotaku’s video review featuring a great look at the DLC, including of course, our first look at Tallis in game.
Both Mark of the Assassin and Dragon Age: Redemption release October 11th.
