    What the flying fuck does Louis Armstrong's What A Wonderful World have to do with Dragon Age? Some gender-queer meth addict in Bioware offices must be losing xis mind.

    They should have gone with Lady Gaga's Bad Romance.

    I want your ugly
    I want your disease
    I want your everything
    As long as it's free
    I want your love
    (Love-love-love I want your love)

    I want your drama
    The touch of your hand
    I want your leather-studded kiss in the sand
    I want your love
    Love-love-love
    I want your love
    (Love-love-love I want your love)

    You know that I want you
    And you know that I need you
    I want it bad, your bad romance

    I want your love and
    I want your revenge
    You and me could write a bad romance
    (Oh-oh-oh--oh-oh!)
    I want your love and
    All your lover's revenge
    You and me could write a bad romance

    I dont think it will help. Looks like both types of combat are pretty much just auto attacking before getting more skills.
    Why hair looks like some kind of shiny plastic? I hope these are just low setting right? Or its how Bioware can harness power of new engine?

    Can't you just hold down X and it shoots constantly at a normal rate?

    For those wondering, Sera was written by Lukas Kristjanson, a senior writer at Bioware. Nobody ever talks about him even though he's had a greater role in Bioware's fantasy games, over all, than Gaider did.

    Other characters he was responsible for in past games:

    Minsc
    Edwin
    Mordin
    Wrex
    Garrus
    Varric
    Aveline
    Carver

    He was also the lead writer on Baldur's Gate 1.

    I'd say Mr. Kristjanson is a normally solid writer, but that Sera's shaping up to be his worst work. Cue #decline.

    That explains a lot. Literally every single one of these characters is a retarded cartoonish wannabe meme-generator.

    I don't really see featuring a trans-gender person as problematic. I see his or hers bad-writing as a problem, as well as of any other character in the game.

    Where is your source for this? Because Mordin (at lease in ME2 that I know) was written by Weekes.

    Eh, you're not that off the mark. Gaider is literally SJWing over this issue on tumblr, for example: http://dgaider.tumblr.com/post/69901751396/on-character-appearances-and-mods. It has been brought up repeatedly by Bioware fans - thereby proving, on one hand, that they are not complete drones, and on the other, that they are in it to virtual fuck these NPCs - but to no avail.

    Nobody knows what goes on at Bioware headquarters but the SJW crowd looks to have immense creative control within the DA group, to the degree that they are able to dictate art design and characterization completely.

    A Bioware post. But I've learned yet again to distrust them. Let me check into it.

    yes you can hold rmb for constant attacks. in tactical view there is auto attack.

    they looked like that on xbox360/ps3/low settings on pc. check any video on jewtube comparing graphix on platforms. some people are to retarded to even check graphic options in game menu.i am playing on high and hair looks ok. although beards are fucking terrible and loading times are shit

    you are trolling right? comparing very first tutorial area with 3rd person shooter where your character already at the beginning is fucking commander Shepard? did you also complained about lack of targeting body parts in DAO or any fucking crpg in last 20 years? FYI you can target body parts of bigger enemies(giants/dragons) like in Dragons Dogma

    You really can't know how fucking horrible it is until you actually play it.

    This is one of the biggest pieces of shit I have ever played. Skyrim and Fallout 3 are masterpieces compared to this crap - i'm not kidding.

    The funny thing is that you don't need to make a character look like an ugly facemelt to avoid objectifying them. A character can still look good/normal/presentable without being pimped out like a porn star, it all depends on their presentation.

    They made Sera's sexual orientation her dominant character trait, and her appearance is entirely defined by this one-dimensional, arbitrary trait. They are still objectifying her. She's Bioware's Token Lesbian, to complete the SJW ensemble.

    Checked into it, made the correction. Weekes is indeed responsible for Mordin, though my sources still say Carver was written by Kristjanson.
