Dragon Age II and High-Rez Patch Released

Today is the North American release day for Dragon Age II, BioWare's role-playing sequel, which will be available in Europe on Friday. In addition to the retail edition, the game is also available online from the EA Store, Direct2Drive, GamersGate, Impulse, and Steam. Also, the BioWare Social Network offers a high-resolution texture pack for the game. Here's word on the 1.08 GB patch: "Using high-resolution textures requires a graphics card with at least 1024MB video memory. Most of the benefits from the Hi-resolution textures will only be seen if you are able to run the game in DirectX 11." For those interested in sampling the game, a playable demo was released last month.

Okay, DA2's combat is starting to annoy me. Mainly because enemy assassins are so ridiculously overpowered. First, they cloak and you can't interrupt that. Second, when they uncloak, they automatically land an unblockable, unavoidable, uninterruptible backstab that often kills you (or your companions) in one hit. Thirdly, whenever he gets low on health, he drinks a health potion that restores a large portion of his health. Again, this is not interruptible and no, he never runs out of potions. If you only had to fight lone assassins, it wouldn't be so bad. Of course, this is never actually the case, as you end up getting swarmed by enemy fighters while dealing with quite possibly the cheapest enemy ever designed.

I don't know what they were thinking. He's probably a lot easier when you aren't playing on Nightmare difficulty but the fact remains that he's significantly harder than all the other enemies I've encountered thus far and he's not even a boss. It's ridiculous. I wonder if they even tested the game on Nightmare difficulty.
