Thank god for credit card charge backs. Item not as described? Seller refusing refund? Charge back!

Isn't there a time limit on that? I doubt you can charge back something you "bought" almost two years ago?

Even though I don't like these offline-scraping news, at this point they've put themselves against a wall. They can't really refund the people who have played already or massive amounts of customers are just gonna ask for a refund to their overpriced alpha/beta purchase and get the much cheaper release version in a few weeks.

That's actually a very good point.

"Player experience is a top priority for us."

Hahahaha, right. That explains the god-awful PC UI...

We'll see if they fix anything. I'm not holding my breath, but fortunately I've gotten used to the UI enough that I can play without it bothering me too much.

I'll never play a warrior in DA:I, though. That's the kind of stupid aggravation I can do without. Sadly, that means I'll never play a dual-wield rogue either, and that's my second-favorite class

- Bound control (pause) to mouse 4 using my mouse software, game doesnt support binding these buttons in 2014 (lol?)

But...but...but... CONTROLLERS!

- Swapped mouse buttons option (left to select, right to attack) thanks Creston this helped a lot. Unfortunately you also have to use left for camera control at that point so the RMB is useless

No worries. I tried it myself, but having to relearn to pan the camera with left mouse instead of right mouse just got so annoying that I gave up and switched it back. For targeting I just cycle through "T" until I have the critter I want. Most of the time I'm AoE bombing anyway, so it doesn't really matter too much.

- Ditched my melee character and made a ranged rogue instead, way less aggravating due to the interface

Yeah I can't even imagine melee with this... How is archery, btw? Any good, or still pisspoor as it was in DA:O?

- Bound autorun to mouse 5 so I don't have to hold W the entire time

The fact they added this almost makes me forgive everything else. autorun is the thing I use the most in Skyrim, and having it here is such a blessing.


- Let users unbind the mouse button attack shit, I can't count the number times last night I went to adjust the camera and instead attacked a fucking door or something

LOL. It looks so stupid too, you're standing in the smithy and want to modify your armor, and instead I pull out my staff and launch four firebolts into the damn table. And all the NPCs are just stoically ignoring me. It would have been funnier if they all ran screaming from the lunatic inquisitor.

- Hire just one person to do a PC specific UI in the future. Seriously please. The inventory screens and etc are ridiculous.

But...but...but... CONTROLLERS!


Bioware really did good this time in everything else.

Yeah I think the game is awesome. Was going to go on with the main story, but had too much fun just running around the Hinterlands. Only thing I'm worried about is that these zones are so fucking huge (seriously, the Hinterlands alone feels like running from Riften to Whiterun) that seeing Yet Another Zone is going to get boring by #3, much less #12....

fyi guys, ati released DA:I optimized beta drivers yesterday. had a bitch of a time installing them on my vista machine, but they do seem to maintain better and smoother fps than my old drivers.

Cool. The new Nvidia drivers made literally no difference for me. Not even a tenth of a frame better in the benchmark.

These numbers seem odd. If they had 7.4 million subscribers recently, 3.3 million people bought Draenor, and now they passed 10 million subscribers, in essence they're saying that the large majority of people who bought Draenor were no longer subscribing, and only a small portion of the existing subscriber base bought it?

These numbers are as of Nov 13th. China didn't get the expansion until the 18th. So there are quite a few copies of WoD not accounted for in that 3.3 million.

I guess that makes sense, if they're mixing numbers from separate dates. It does say sold in the first 24 hours, but I guess the subscriber numbers are presumably of today.

Or maybe not. It's not uncommon to find massive sales on vehicles during November and December. There's that old adage of correlation is not causation.

Eh. You might be right. Google fact checking seems to suggest there is no clear causation or even really a spike right now.

Fair enough, C&D does have a different take on it. (which I hadn't seen.)

Sales of SUVs and trucks have soared since gas dipped below $3/G a month or so ago. Long term thinking is the not the American citizen's forte.

I own a truck and drive it daily to and from work on a 108 mile round trip commute. You don't buy a full sized truck, or by an extension, an SUV if you're worried about gas mileage or can't afford the gas.

I don't, no. You don't either. Most of America? Yeah, probably. How else do you explain that SUV and Truck sales go up/soar when gas prices go down? This isn't the first time it's happened, it happened the last time, eight or so years ago when oil dropped back down to 30 bucks and gas went back down to like a buck fifty. SUVs and trucks were FLYING off the lots. Car dealers couldn't keep them in stock. Gas prices go back up, sales of SUVs and trucks went back down.

Gas prices go down, sales go back up. If you want to say it's not because of gas prices, shrug, fine, I don't care.

The avg American is dirt fucking stupid.

Back on the scripts, is it possible they are doing something like as you level they give you more access to add scripts?

I strongly doubt it... There doesn't really even seem to be any room in the screen for it, and I've seen no mention of a functionality like that in all the reviews I've read.

I told my buddy that they need to fix up the PC controls and listed the problems we're having. He'll ignore it and probably tell me to fuck off, but I did it anyway. I'm going to try that cutscene fix, I was thinking they looked a little clunky compared to the rest of the game.

Let's hope they do something. An auto-attack toggle and the ability to just click and select in tact-cam would alleviate most of my remaining issues.

Sidenote, rebenchmarked with the 970, on Ultra+FT@1080p, now it's 54/44. Wheee

What was it on the 660 again?

35/25. (avg/min)


1. Still a lot of loading watching a stream and it's slow. Boo.

True, it does take a long time to load, but when you are in a zone or a mission (ie, where you spend 90% of the game), it doesn't load. At least not via a loading screen. So it's all front-loaded (see what I did there?!) basically.


3. About tactics, if it isn't great, I have plenty of other games that are now. If it is more a great action RPG, fine with that.

It is, and on higher diff levels, you definitely need tactics.

The Party AI, yes if they gutted that, that is probably the biggest disappointment then. I used the crap out of it and you could really add to your party and leave out a lot of micro-managing and get a job well done. This goes all the way back for Bioware, gutting it would be a big disappointment. The only good I can say is no one else had anything like it, so it's no worse than the rest.

FF12 did, and it was awesome. You could literally set it up so the game essentially played itself, which was fun to craft. But yeah, that's all gone.

Controls. If most issues are rebinds, well I do that with every game and if Mouse 4 and 5 aren't recognized, I'll go into the mouse software and bind those to be something else DA:I can work with. IMO we should all have that capability. However is does seem a little beyond just that. Keeping eye on.

I really have no control issues anymore. I don't agree with every decision, but i'm used to it now, so eh. It plays fine, to be honest. The Tact Cam being shitty, shrug. I rarely used it in origins either (though that was because I had kickass AI setup...)

I was in line yesterday at Gamestop to pick up my copy of GTAV and a lady was buying it for her 12 year old. So disturbing.

Wow. You should have struck up a conversation with the kid and watched mom's face: "Hey man, did you hear you can get a blowjob from the hookers in first person now? <pulls out phone> Here, it's on youtube!"

Our system in a nutshell:
Buying GTAV for a 12 year old: Perfectly legal.
Showing GTAV vid to a 12 year old: 10 years in the pen and life-long listing on the pedo registry.

I think legal for a legal guardian buy M games for their kids, just like how you can bring a kid to an R movie if you're the legal guardian. Alcohol may be different.

Correct. If a mom buys a game for her 5 year old that is totally unsuitable, Gamestop should just sell her the game. It's not their job to raise her kid.

If that kid walks in by him/herself to try to buy it, they should refuse.

Either way, they can't get into trouble over it, because despite millions of dollars thrown at it by pandering senators/congressdicks, there is no law that prohibits it. The age rating is a guidance, not a legal dictum.
