I think maybe you're just a surly little monkey about your game and taking things a little too seriously. Sorry someone hurt your feelings in your time of need Smiley: flowers


I actually chuckled. Games are supposed to be entertainment. I was not entertained. More than that, I was eventually turned off by the game due to numerous bugs, freezes, and weird graphical issues. Now, if I paid money for it, I would be taking it a lot more seriously. I didn't, but as a public service announcement, I did what I could to dissuade new buyers ( a little late, but better late than never ).

If anything, I think you take things too lightly. This is money. And money is sacred in America.

Edit: Also, I think the word you are looking for is "ornery".

Flip "PC Master Race" joke aside, I do hear ya. As I said, I've heard that the "old" console versions of the game really got the shaft. Sure they're not as pretty as the new console versions but that's to be expected. But I understand that they're just straight up not as playable.

That's aside from whether or not you liked the game itself. I sincerely empathize that the old console version is, by reports, an unsatisfying experience. Maybe it would have been better if they took the Ubisoft route (stop laughing, I'm serious!) and just recognized that the older consoles wouldn't have the horsepower for it and made an alternate title. As it turned out, AC: Unity's bugs and general lameness got all the press and hype but I hear that the overshadowed AC: Rogue is actually a pretty solid title if you liked the mechanics from AC3 and Black Flag.

And your service announcement was actually useful since my kid has a PS3 and I'll know to tell him to wait on Inquisition until he can get a PS4. He's seen me playing it so I know he has at least some interest in it but now I can tell him not to waste his money.

I don't really disagree. I would rather see that than a lazy port. The thing is, I still remember lazy port of Dragon Age I ( thankfully, I had the sexbox version then ) and, well, it angers me, because there was absolutely no way anyone could claim that PS3 was not sufficient to handle it. And that is another issue I am having with the way things are done today. I was not blown away by the graphics. All the crap in that game was already done and done better ( and the same can be said for AC ).

Eh, I dunno, I think I am just getting old.

Ok. Time to go. Party awaits.

Happy nye:>

I beat it @ 110 hours. Enjoyed it for the most part & agree that the ending (aside from the after credits scene) was underwhelming. Hopefully there's some DLC planned to fix that (Bioware is used to this by now).

Solas' & Dorian's quests glitched on me so I never finished there's, but did everyone else's, I think I killed all the dragons (I was on 9 of 10 when I fought the last battles, so I think he was the last one?), & romanced Josephine (lack of boobs in her romance scenes didn't make me regret it. I thought they were cute/sweet).

I'd love to reroll a mage (proceeded the 1st time as a duel wielding rogue) if my Fifa "hack" origin issues weren't preventing me from access to the keep (I'd like to see if Morrigan's personality changes in game if I don't make her "good" this time). I could create a new origin account from another email that I don't have & call customer service to resolve this, but instead I'll just start The Last of Us remastered on my PS4 that has been gathering dust while I dragon aged on PC.

BioWare is giving away Dragon Age: Inquisition's tavern songs for free right now

Want to listen to the tavern songs from Dragon Age: Inquisition at your convenience, perhaps in an attempt to make your drinking a bit more atmospheric? BioWare is making that easier than ever by giving away an album's worth of bard tunes for free right now.

BioWare said on the Dragon Age website that due to popular demand, it has assembled 10 tavern songs — including hits like "I Am The One," "Grey Warden" and "Empress of Fire" — into an easy and free to download archive. The tunes are even accompanied by the sheet music to Raney Shockne and Inon Zur's songs, should your band be playing a tavern sometime soon.

The music is separate from Inquisition's digital original soundtrack, which was made available to those who purchased the game.

Dragon Age: Inquisition's tavern songs are available to download for free as MP3 files from the Dragon Age website until Feb. 9. After that, BioWare says they'll be "available for sale on many popular digital platforms."

Smiley: thumbsup I thought it was lame that the OST was all the instrumental scores (and that goofy Andraste song) but none of the tavern songs. I wanted the ability to listen to those at my leisure rather than having to stand around in the tavern next to the singer for four minutes.

I'm always for free skrilla, but I think it's laughable they'll try to sell these tracks after giving them away.

They're short too, about 1 to 2 minutes long each.

New DLC is out: Jaws of Hakkon. Quick notes from reviews I read:

- $15 price tag
-A new area roughly the size of the Hinterlands
- Out tomorrow on PC, today on XBox

Pros:
- New area to explore.
- A new dragon to fight
- Lots of vendors with schematics that were difficult/impossible to get before.
- New tier 4 material
- High-level area; suggested level is 20.
- Can be completed prior to or after the end of the game.
- More Scout Harding dialogue and party banter

Cons:

- Probably only about 10 hours of content total
- Few cut scenes
- No unique scenes with love interests
- Some buggy dialogue (references to fighting the big bad after already beating the game)
- The story seems to be stand-alone and does not have much involvement with the main storyline

So basically it sounds like you're paying to unlock a new area similar to Emerald Graves or Hissing Wastes. Something that'll extend your adventure and get you treasure, but doesn't add much character involvement.

On a somewhat related note, I realized the other week that I've never bought Mark of the Assassin for DA2. I have all the other big DLCs (Black Emporium, Legacy, Exiled Prince and some of the item packs for elemental weapons). Is it worth buying? It always seemed lackluster when I read about it, but some people rate it about at the level of ME3: Citadel. Which I loved.

$15 is half 33% of what I paid for the base game. Pass for now.

Cost me a little more than I remembered, plus I got suckered into buying the Digital Deluxe version which was lame. I can ride the world's ugliest mount though... yay.

It caught my eye and I'm considering buying it, but then I realized I'd have to download the base game again, etc. etc..

I'll probably wait for a price drop or more DLC so I can complete them in bunches.

If I still had the game installed, I might consider buying it, but I'm not downloading the game again just for one DLC. Maybe once they all come out and I can get some kind of discount on the set I'll look into it.

I'm bored and there aren't any decent new games out lately, so I'm replaying through DA:I. I'm also bumping this thread, because just skimming through it reminds me how happy and innocent we all were a few years ago.

Playing an elven mage (two mages with Barrier in a party is OP), and romancing Cassandra (boobies!). Just got to Skyhold. Trying to minimize the side questing, but still want to kill all the dragons.

Unfortunately, the prude is confined to the traditional heteronormative gender binary.

Does Sera show her boobies?

Also, I can't believe that "boobies" isn't a filtered word.

She is? I thought that Josephine was the hetro option, Sera is the lesbian and Cassandra goes both ways. Those are the only female romance options if I remember right (no Viv or Leliana).

Sera is supposedly difficult to romance and only goes for elvish women. I tried once with a dwarf woman and couldn't seal the deal and later found out about the elf thing. Also, the model for nude dwarf women is horrific (I romanced Blackwall and then let him hang. Sucker!)

Edit: This makes me more certain that Cassandra does both -- otherwise the sole fem-fem option is locked behind playing an elf and I can't believe Bioware would have allowed for that. Again, unless I'm just forgetting a female romance option.

Sera goes for any woman, but is a bit of a ***** to an Elvish one, as I recall. Cassandra is a traditionalist. I think Josephine goes both ways, though. You can also end up in a relationship with Scout Harding, I think, but it's kinda offscreen.

ESO seems fun again though. Might spin that up again.
