    Yeah, Dragon Age: Independence is a much bigger improvement. Now you can just hold down attack and win.

    Dude, BioWare is developing with xbox controllers wired up at their desk. Not a single dev photo was shown with them testing with KBM input. You know what kind of developers they are if you even remmber half of playing DA2 w/ a KBM setup.

    It fucking is though. Tactical mode doesn't even fucking work correctly, it is just tacked on bullshit. You can hardly even see what the fuck is going on during a battle in tactical mode.

    The game is designed for button mashing with the controller without using the tactical camera.

    Can't be worse than DA2

    Surprised RK plays it third person, or is it mandatory on X-box? Probably should play it in isometric, point&click flying numbers mode ala Infinity Games

    If RKs first combat video is any indication, biowarian choice is back in all its glory.

    Fast forward to 3:20

    If you paid for the game I'd wager you'd feel pretty butthurt afterwards, so it's p. realistic.

    Leliana looks like she's had some serious botox work done.

    Well, I watched this all the way through finally.

    :lol: I haven't watched an AJ video since early in his channel because I decided it's not for me, so I'm not sure if this is the norm. He sounds like he is going through a list of "Don't forget to mention x" written by Bio. That bit where he shows the tac camera, says it is super great to see it return then never uses it is amazing.

    That last fight was nothing, he played only controlling his own character with AI on default tactics, looked away from the boss who was giving long 'warning' animations (so he would have known when to move from the targeted attacks it threw out for huge damage), played mostly in RT and wasted a heap of time doing nothing with the character he was controlling. He still almost killed it, if he popped potions he would have. On the hardest difficulty. There was also the early shit he was fighting, just seemed like Nightmare gave them way to much health, the still weren't a threat, just a lot of time auto attacking.

    If any of you find a fun fight while you playthrough on Nightmare, upload and let us know how frequent they are, fun combat could make this worth a look for me. Paraphrased dialogue options combined with the writing style (the amount of times I've seen something reasonable chosen on the wheel and then the PC tries to be Bioware-funny ... I couldn't take it), 'go to the marker' quests and the accept/decline sidequests (which apparently is a lot of what you'll be doing, as you have to to build power for the MQ's I think?) aren't appealing.

    I'd like to hear how the choices pan out, I bet you end up resolving the Mages vs Templars stuff, deciding how the mages are policed. You did this in Origins as well, but sequels decided it didn't matter. Ruler of Orlais will probably be in your hands to, I think there is a rebellion going on during the game. So I'm looking forward to SV's LP I suppose.

    Actually I think Leliana looks vaguely like Felicia Day now. It's like having her in that DLC and poorly made youtube series wasn't enough.

    Imweasel, I value your opinions and enjoy your posts but let me tell you, you should have known better.
    By the way, ARE they going to refund?

    Codex has high standards, but my example with DAI Leliana is that her design was a try at making an attractive woman according to mainstream standards. I don't think that's the case for Cassandra, Sera, and Josephine, especially the former two. I personally believe that the DAI artists and designers set out to depict the 'average homely woman' as per SJW goals.

    Yep. But i'll make up for it by warning everybody about this game.

    Nope. :lol:

    They came up with some bullshit saying that I played for more than 24 hours (which is of course impossible), so I won't get my money back. The "Great Game Guarantee" mentioned on Origin's website is bullshit.

    Oh well.

    Speaking of plastic hair... Is it supposed to be an inside joke about Gaider's toupée or something?
