lowtideandhightea asked: Kind of. You'll be able to download it on to multiple computers definitely, but you won't be able to both be online in origin and playing at the same time. However, one of you can play in "offline mode" on origin at the same time as the other is also playing.
Posting for anyone else who was wondering whether multiple people can play DA:I on one Origin account.
Dragon Age DRM question
Here’s an Dragon Age: Inquisition question for Bioware fans who play on PC.
My girlfriend and I both love Dragon Age and are both going to want to ravenously tear through the new game when it comes out. We’ve played every entry in the series on our shared X-Box which gets REALLY complicated when a new game comes out (“Sweetie, I’m going to play Dragon Age tonight and I’m ahead of you, so close the bedroom door and call my cell if you need to leave that room for any reason or you’ll get spoiled”) , but this time around we may possibly both have laptops that can run it (something that was not true in past years).
I’m not very familiar with Origin (referring here to EA’s Steam-like “service” and no DA:O) but I assume it’s the DRM that DRM has nightmares about. If we did buy the game for PC, is it likely Origin would permit us to install it on multiple PCs and play on both at the same time?
I have met some of the most amazing women I have ever known through the game industry. Larger-than-life, funny, warm, sweet, razor-sharp, overeducated women, the kind who laugh too loudly in quiet rooms. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard most of them laugh. One of them IMed me today about how she was leaving the industry and she couldn’t handle the idea of disappointing me but she just couldn’t take it any more, and I told her it was okay, it’s fine, self-care is so important, because it is.
The truth is that after our conversation ended, I put my head in my hands and cried.
I could tell you stories about the voices we’ve lost, the women we’ve scarred, the people we’ve left behind. I want to, but I’m not sure you’d get it. I tweeted earlier today, We should have a war memorial for all of the women we have lost to this. We should lay flowers and grieve and see our reflections in stone. And I meant it. I wish there were a way to honor the people our industry has wronged, and a way to visualize the enormity of what we have lost because of it— some representation of the gap between what games are and what they can be, and the pieces of the bridge between that have fallen away.— Elizabeth Sampat writes on women in the games industry, spinning off Zoe Quinn’s situation. Read the whole thing. It’s a shotgun blast of a piece. The last line of the whole thing is my takeaway from the last few weeks. (via kierongillen)

I doubt the troll intended the allusion to the novel and musical Wicked, but the comparison to an astute critic speaking truth to power despite the anger of the privileged is apt.
Idina is a little old to play Anita in Tropes Vs. the Musical, but I think it could work.
