Good, the PC is the platform that needs the most attention.

It's a good game, better than Origins in world design, combat and aesthetics. Worse than Origins in story, depth and quests. It depends on what you're into and what your expectations are. It's definitely a good game that's worth picking up. I hate giving anything scores but if I had to then I would give it an 8 out of 10.

I've beaten the whole thing so if you have any specific questions feel free to ask, I'm pretty well 'learned' on the game now.

I tend to agree with your points on Inquisition vs Origins. There is a lot of pointless filler content in both games but I think Inquisition has a bigger focus on it. I like the flow of combat better in Inquisition but I prefer the camera from Origins. Origins is more challenging, Inquisition is too forgiving for my tastes. The user interface in Inquisition is straight up bullshit compared to Origins. The Inquisition storyline gets too bogged down in politics and the weird narrative push towards elven stuff is a bit weird at this stage. Origins is more straight forward and cliched but ultimately more relatable and enjoyable.

Also I keep seeing people refer to Inquisitions as an open world game but is certainly not one and I wouldn't compare it to Skyrim for that reason. Big instanced zones != open world. The NPCs don't have any real AI by comparison, Inquisition has no attached world space and about the only thing it shares in common with Skyrim are those basic quests everyone dislikes. Comparing them does neither game any favors, they're both good and bad at various things.

I have no idea what to make of that but if it isn't rated R I'm not interested. Hollywood has totally watered down movies in recent years and I'm tired of comic book violence and quick jump cut edits.

Yeah, I agree. There are a bunch of movies that would have been better as 'R': Avatar, Edge of Tomorrow, The Wolverine, The Dark Knight, etc, etc. This one too. But it won't be. Definitely knocks it down a notch in interest, even while I felt the trailer showed the movie had potential.

There's a great bit on videosift about Jackie Chan movies and a lot of it is applicable to mistakes that studios and American action directors keep making. It's not even a case of old being better than new, techniques being used now just make for a poor viewing experience. In many cases its almost like its being done on purpose so that the product is watered down enough to satisfy the ratings boards. Most of the action franchises started to suck right when they went from R to PG, both commercially and critically. The only saving grace is often unrated versions or re-edited versions that get sold in foreign markets. I know some people like them but I find many of the new comic book movies the epitomy of watered down filmmaking.

North American audiences suck to be honest, we have the most bullshit hypocrisies. Lots of guns! Lots of violence! No blood! No swearing! Those are bad! Lots of skin, lingerie and sexual overtones but no T&A!

It's a bad argument in the first place. High spec requirements don't necessarily mean a game is pushing hardware, Dead Rising 3 is a good example of that.

There's tons of areas that were clearly intended to be quest hubs where you can see they just ran out of time too. The Exalted Plains alone has like 3 huge, almost empty forts with a single quest. Shame that they couldn't take an extra 6 months and really polish this game to perfection. I wonder what sales were like because EA is being pretty quiet about it and it went up against some tough competition. The extra time might've made sense.

Plus even if it were true many people here would pick it up on the PC. That's what frustrated people more about the TR thing.

Who gets to declare it's "National Whatever" day? And why should I just take their word for it? Every day is "National Something-Or-Other" Day and I am kind of tired of it.

Today is National Prez Day!

Actually that's more like...any day theres a Steam sale

Microsoft does this with Tomb Raider and the internet explodes. Sony does it with Street Fighter and nobody gives damn.

Pretty quick to jump to the double standards thing at comment #4 in the thread. The story was posted an hour ago and isn't even confirmed yet. It is probably just timed exclusivity like Tomb Raider anyway and North American audiences care more about TR than they do about SF I would wager.

Apparently the new Street Fighter game is exclusive to PS4/PC. No idea if this timed or not.

As for the console game thing, I remember paying over $100 (Canadian) for Final Fantasy 3 when it came out on SNES, and pretty sure Doom64 ran for like $129 when it released.

Dude there were so few copies of FF3 printed that my brother and I made our poor mother drag us around 3 different towns looking for it. We finally tracked it down at some dodgy ass pawn shop type store, the guy only had 1 and we paid $140 for it. Better believe we played that thing for like 100 hours hahaha.

I purchased Darksiders 2 for the Wii U for $10 (Nintendo eShop Black Friday Special). So far all the game-play feels like jump here, kill very few enemies and hunt for keys. Does it get better than this later on or did I just purchase a single player game with "MMO play style" without realizing it?

The dungeons are more of a Zelda experience but yeah they did the overworld like some crappy MMO, it was a disappointing move considering the structure of the first game was more limited and appealing.

With the right build Dorian does absolutely insane damage as Fire/Necro, wow. Just messing around with my companions now. The game has terrible AI that makes it difficult to effectively evaluate anything unless you spend a few hours playing it yourself.

So does the PS gold work with just my regular tv too?

If you have a stereo jack on your TV/receive or adapters to accommodate it then yeah.

The PS gold set works fine for PC/PS4 but I think the Bone uses a proprietary port for headset connections. I don't know for sure though, someone else can chime in there. In typical Microsoft fashion it appears there is a peripheral for this too. I agree with nin, its a good set for the money. Wireless headphones quickly get into absurd prices and often have issues, that's the only pair I've ever been happy with.

I doubt it Batman. Maybe if Bestbuy does another trade-in promotion but I wouldn't count on it.

Now is probably a good time for a next gen console, lots of third party stuff out there and that bundle is a pretty good deal. You will want a controller dock or second controller though, DS4 battery life sucks.

Ok, the game isn't for you fair enough. But these ignorant comments about the graphics are silly. What "graphics"? The texture work? The models? The animations? What bitrate were the videos recorded at for both? Was everything equal? Video compression is largely garbage in, garbage out. Like Skyrim there are some areas where it excels and others where it comes up short. Overall though its a very visually appealing game with a strong design aesthetic. Some of the zone design is almost breath taking. There's something to be said for good art direction rather than amazingly high res but otherwise bland texture work.

Also comparing heavily modded Skyrim to unmodded Dragon Age is apples to oranges in the first place.

You should be a little more open minded and actually try it yourself sometime, I don't think you're really giving it a fair shake.

Oh common Verno, thats bullshit and you know it. We are talking about gamer culture here, geeks and nerds galore. Poeple who are into roleplaying and shit. Neckbeards all over the place. When was the last time you saw an interview with a male developer who actually wore a shirt and tie????

The same standards dont apply and everyone fucking knows it.

I'll decide what I know for myself thanks. I'd like to think most male and female developers would dress up slightly if they knew they were going to be photographed with regards to Gamergate. Of course the same standards don't apply to everyone, that's the point. People tend to judge you based on your appearance first and foremost.
