It's called STAR WARS. None of that George Lucas revisionist bullshit around here boy.
Then Episode IV... oh, wait.
Don't be so picky as I don't see other way to refer only to this specific movie, as it both followed plenty of teenager fantasy tropes and title in question had a very "surprising" similarities to it. Not sure about how further books related to ESB and RotJ, as I only knowledgeable about the movie and only by some lulzy reviews, sunce I couldn't bring myself to watch it.

One of my favorite German-speaking gaming sites. They're basically accusing Bioware of laziness, poor Bethesda plagiarism, and DA:I's world feels more like a MMO world.

Score: 59%

:lol:
lol i stopped taking them seriously when they gave fallout 3 87? 88? or something like that:M same score for Oblivion. than couple years later they started bashing any AAA titles just for the sake of publicity.

Apologies if repost, The Telegraph slammed the game and gave it 60/100:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technolo...s/11221041/Dragon-Age-Inquisition-review.html

I love the BDF (Bioware Defense Force) and their attacks on the reviewer:
Bioware Fanboy said:
Take a look at IGN/PC Gamer/Polygon/TIME, legitimate and professional sites, with top-notch reviewers, consistently ranking this game as one of the year's best, and you deign to give it 3 stars?

Isn't that almost exactly what one of the advertising plants that was caught out during DAII said?

Yep, mirrors the BDF damage control when DA2 got slammed. They will be trying to pad the user score up on metacritic tomorrow.

They have better consistency than most other sites. Also Fallout 3 was a good game, just not a good Fallout game.

sure it was. what did you like better : vampires, city built around nuclear bomb or settlement run by fucking brats?:salute:

How long do we give it till people that criticise DAI are accused of homophobia, transphobia or misogyny? I seem to remember that tactic being used a lot when DA2 was getting criticised.

Fuck off, there are like 4 negative reviews out there and dozens of positive ones - it's natural to question the negative ones, especially if it's something like 59%... From what I could gather, the game suffers from too much grind and fed-ex quests in first few hours, its main plot is unoriginal and there's too much shit going on, thus lacking focus (quality) in a particular department... Everything else said about this game in every single review I read (positive or negative) is vague, because those faggots out there fail to give good arguments or dive deep when analyzing (even the german one). It's either praising or bitching, but without capability to back this up (I love how they praise the C&C, yet they never tried the different path to see if it's actually making difference...).

I'm referring less to specific reviews and more how Bioware/EA will do damage control.

Fallout 3 is one of the worst game I have ever played and I'm not trying to be edgy here. Skyrim is a fucking masterpiece compare to that abomination.

THE COMBAT FUCKING SUCKS. TACTICAL MODE FUCKING SUCKS. DRAGON AGE 2 IS A MUCH BETTER GAME. THIS GAME IS NOT ENJOYABLE AT ALL.

^
Those are my first impressions playing the new Faggot Age with mouse + keyboard.

Okay, I figured out tactical cam and rebound the keys. Why in the fuck is A and D used to rotate the damn camera? Doesn't make any damn sense.

Twitter already started complaining - horrible pathfinding, archers trying to shoot through stone(and failing), glitches during interface-to-dialogue transitions etc.
Looks like Assassin's Creed: Unity have a potential competitor.

I thought the game wasn't being released until midnight Eastern (12 hours from when this was posted)?

Are there that many pre-release copies floating around?

I suppose it was about console pre-release because they mentioned sticks, that will stop reacting if you press some buttons when game changes from tactical interface to dialogue interface.
