News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online Dropping Subscriptions in March

So, all discussions of Buy to Play vs F2P aside, is this game any good?

For an MMO, it's not bad. They do a lot of things that caters towards immersion, but they botch up grouping if you want to keep questing with the same people from one day to the next. Lots of phased quests, and no rested XP to help catch up to friends if you're out for a while.

Dungeon runs are kind of chaotic in a fun way because the AI doesn't just come straight at you like in other MMO's. I tried doing a line of site pull one time, and instead of getting all the melee mobs to come first, they grouped up with the casters and they all came around the corner at the same time. Was kind of a hilarious slaughter.

Basically it's worth checking, imo. I enjoyed my soloing in it. Haven't played since August.

Depends, I've pointed out on the forums there that you can use WASD to do most of the navigating. Just set A and D to pan camera left and right. You always walk in the direction of the camera, so you basically steer with that. Then you only have to hold down the mouse button to change the tilt up or down of the camera, or to look at something specific.

Some people don't seem to like that method, but you could do it in the previous games and it's how I've always navigated.

So... are they bringing back old voice actors?? There's a pic of Imoen amongst the other images. Do you play the same character? If so, are they upping the level you can start BGII at??

If this was just BGIII I'd be like, 'ok, lets see what you got', but this is just weird due to all the continuity issues they have to handle (or ignore, I s'pose).

Nope, he has both a gf and a wife. The article is rather scarce on details concerning the dynamics of that.

There was some specific option, I think it was texture related, that killed performance. I don't think it was all that bad otherwise, well for the high level of graphics it was delivering.

The open world aspect of this one's going to beef up the requirements.

The reason I keep using them is their ALchemy app allows for hardware sound acceleration with pretty much every game still. Does give a slight nudge towards smoother frame rates, some games more than others (for SW:ToR it made a huge difference).

I do have my x-fi running to a Schiit amp though for headphones. Someday I may get a mega high end DAC, but for now it works nicely.

Holy shit...

Found this on the forum:

1) Navigate to your "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age Inquisition\Save" folder
2) Open the "ProfileOptions_profile" file with Notepad
3) Increase the "GstRender.MeshQuality" parameter by a factor of 1.
4) Save the file, open the game and check the quality of the graphics.
5) If the meshes are not high quality again, repeat step 3.

Thanks, Creston!

And lol, dwarf..
