Co-op adds all sorts of development complexity, I would rather they not do that and just focus on the core singleplayer experience that they're known for.

It seems like a silly double standard to apply given the number of other reprehensible games on Steam.

You're wasting your time with LittleMe and Cutter, they have a number of crackpot theories about vaccination and government conspiracies. It's paranoid delusion and you won't reach them.

DA:I feels like the DA2 team trying to move back to DA:O without anyone from the DA:O team to hold their hand and show them the way. I don't mind a short game if the content is meaningful but this goes the other direction. A bunch of banal content designed to inflate game time with a very short story. The amount of superficial elements in the game is bordering on comical. Nearly every quest is resolved by fighting and the amount of quests without even text dialogue is kind of alarming. The story itself probably would've been better served by a 40 page choose your own adventure book. The ending is a big let down and really gut punches the build up they had going.

I liked the game because there aren't many RPGs on the market and your first time checking out the various zones was fun but I'm bouncing pretty hard off it trying to do a second run. It just feels superficial and without substance, just makes me want to replay DA:O instead.

I don't regret the money spent on it but after finishing the game and thinking about it I can't say I loved or even particularly liked it either. A few memorable moments in the story, a lot of annoyances from the AI/UI and not much else to take away. Also this game has the clunkiest CQC I've ever seen, so glad I played ranged.

That aside, I'm happy that they're moving in somewhat of the right direction instead of doubling down on DA2 bullshit.

Good luck with that one. C'mon Gabe hurry up with SteamOS. Pretty please? Or at least give us HL3 or something
Hopefully MS support will not run out on 7 for a while.
I really hate 8

I am really hoping SteamOS isn't another in a long line of dropped Valve projects because I barely use anything Windows specific anymore outside of games.

There is more than enough ammo to use against government idiocy without going into the realm of fantasy about UFOs and 9/11 being a plot by the Bushes and whatever.

Too inconsistent with the offerings. Some months they did weird repeats and even skipped some platforms. Sony didn't do great this year either but Microsoft as usual half assed it.

More useless bloat in their OS... as expected.

On this we are in full agreement.

Microsoft's treatment of PC gaming over the years is one of the biggest missed opportunities I've seen and its all the more glaring because its on their own turf.

I'm having a blast with Far Cry 4, it is a great follow up to FC3. The latest patch finally addresses the mouse issues which was my sole complaint. The amount of unscripted hilarity I've encountered is pretty crazy, I wish other Ubi games could have open worlds this zany.

I really don't want that sort of tech in the car. I actually prefer physical knobs and buttons, muscle memory makes adjustments rote. I find that sort of electronics usually has a lifespan of 5-7 years and it just encourages more proprietary bullshit so that you buy a new car more often.

And Ben Kuchera. And until recently, Chris "Shirtgate" Plante, though he just continues to write the same tripe over on The Verge, which is owned by the same company.

Haha wow that's a double whammy of shit. Fun fact, long time ago I played Counter-Strike on the Ars servers and Ben Kuchera (who went by Stasis 7) got banned for using a wallhack. He was also a monumental douche over there when he was a staff member.

LOL at this Solas/Iron Bull tidbit, mild spoilers on his personal quest:

Iron Bull: So, you going to let me have it, Solas? Or do I get to wait and wonder.
Solas: What do you mean?
Iron Bull: We've got the alliance with my people. Given how much you love the Qun, I figured...
Solas: I might scold you? Berate you for your decisions?
Iron Bull: Hey. The Chargers died as heroes for the good of the mission.
Solas: I never said otherwise.
Solas: The truth is, Iron Bull, you are Qunari. I cannot be disappointed in your decisions.
Solas: As a mindless, soulless drone, you could never make any.

I don't even get what entices people to go to the cinema in the first place. Noisy people and people in front of me blocking half the screen isn't my idea of a good time that I pay money for...

Women like going out and doing things. Often its pointless things just to fill time but that's what women do. It is a very rare woman who is a home body that never wants to go anywhere and sit around playing games or watching movies. That's not a horrible thing either, I do enough of that shit on my own so getting out for a bite to eat with friends and seeing a flick is a nice break from routine.

Thanks for the write up Hanover, very interesting but ultimately I think I will pass and move onto other racers for my introduction to the genre.

The real shame about DriveClub is apparently with the latest patch its very fun and one of the better looking games on the market now. They should've just held it back 3 months for some real beta testing.

That quote is a bit out of context. For the people who will react to the headline instead of reading the article, they're not making a MOBA. It was being considered at one point but they just decided to make DD2 a true sequel.

I could handle the bad AI if the tactical mode wasn't completely terrible but it is. I could handle the tactical mode being stupid if it didn't control like shit but it does. And so on. The problem with the small issues in DA:I is that there are a bunch of them and they add up to big annoyances.

I like the game, I think its definitely worth the asking price and then some. But the way they shipped the PC version is indefensible and they do need to make it right. It prevents me from fully enjoying many parts of it and makes some things way more tedious than they need to be.

Have they said at all when to expect the next patch? I suppose after this mess it will be a good while and that's not a bad thing.
