    Love the French. Jeux Video 12/20

    The simplification of the gameplay system was expected, but it was supposed to enable a more epic adventure, served with a fascinating history and spectacular staging, which is not really the case. Between the little care given to quest, incessant fighting in recycled environments, inability to negotiate out of strategic clashes and the mediocrity of the French localization, it isn't even at the level of Awakening, but a big, uninspired DLC. Fans of role playing tactics should turn with no hesitation to the latest Drakensang, rather than endorse this debacle, which is in serious competition with Gothic 4 for worst butchering of a franchise that we've seen in recent years

    That is awesome.

    Playing DA2 at the moment and unfortunately that's all true. Drakensang: The River of Time is a much, much better game indeed.

    - this coming from a fat, not-in-her-prime, 4-eyes and most probably - undersexed woman sounds rather...

    Nice. It's refreshing to see some sites that do not suck upon the EA cock, and tell us how it truly is.

    VIVA LA FRANCE!

    Now I can't wait for the GameBanshee review. Will you be doing it BN?

    I clearly remember an article, which wrote about Bioware bashing Square Enix for making linear maps for FFXIII. Looking at that picture, they are not better at all.

    Difference is that they are butchering their own shitty franchise and not a franchise beloved by many. Great review regardless, though 12/20 still seems too high given the criticisms. Fucking fanboys, just go all the way already!


    The good one.

    Let's try again.

    Here they say DA2 is dumbed down in comparison to DA:O, now I'm pretty sure you're still with me here. The next part is where they then consider DA:O dumbed down compared to BG ie. bad game. It's tricky for ya I know.

    So we have DA2 < DA:O(bad game) = DA2 really bad game, and did not imply that DA:O is something to aspire too, but as shitty as its features may be, DA2 still lacks in comparison.

    Now I'm not sure how that embarrasses me and not you, but you have an active imagination so I'm sure you'll come up with something. I'm beginning to think you are actually specially challenged so I'm sorry for the retard remark.

    Brent Knowles. Been with the company since Shadows of Amn, he was one of the leads on Origins.

    I'm not scheduled to.

    To be honest I'm glad. This game has absolutely no draw on me, and I'm planning to skip it. Possibly pick it up as a bargain bin title way in the way-off future.

    OK got ya, I can understand. Though I thought you might want to have a good vent at Bioware with a DA II review.

    You should see what they did with the gay m/m characters. I am honestly outraged as a gay man. They need to stop.

    Oh, for crying out loud, how did you even figure out how to crawl out of a vagina...
    So, here's pretty picture, just for you: all his "fucking" and exclamation marks were directed at DAO being dumbed down, and not BG (have you even read the "review" or just that bad at trolling?).
    Are you getting that? Really? No, don't chew it.
    Yes, we're all astonished by the fact, but tough noogies - that's all the mention of BG there is, is not the point of the "review, and the "review" did not compare DA2 to BG (unless BG had "origins" you can proof pic).
    I don't know if I can make that any clearer, so if none of it gets through to the magic land you live in, I'll not bother with you, anymore.

    I haven't seen the video, and well, I'm not going to bother. After seeing dev interviews and remembering the fuck scenes from DAO, I'm sure it's fantastic. Anyway, I thought the gay blacksmith couple from DAO was good. I'm assuming this doesn't quite live up to that.
