News Comments > Dragon Age II DLC Released; Web Series Begins
26. Re: Dragon Age II DLC Released; Web Series Begins Oct 12, 2011, 19:59 Dirwulf
 

I'm a masochist. You know I've stated several times I liked DAII. I'm wearing brass underwear today.

And I still like DAII.

I doubt I'll buy this DLC right now, but you know, when its on sale for $1.

I never looked at DAII as a sequel. I looked at it as the next game in the series. I'm not sure that makes sense to some of you, who seem to expect sequels to have no innovation, backwards or forwards, and just want the same thing all the time. I know there is no such thing as backward innovation, but sometimes your heart is in the right place but what comes out in the end isn't exactly the way you thought it would be.

I still had a blast with the game.

i've been on the beta for months -- offline means you dont get one or 2 in game perks but I wouldn't call them essential to play the game.

Uhhh...you can't use any custom heroes in your dynasty, only default heroes. No custom anything. Only default.

You will be playing a partial game in offline mode.

For instance, any pre-order bonuses can be used in ONLINE mode only. So that cool collectors edition? Yeah...only good when online.

So what are disciplines then? Do they make it worth the hassle of being online only?

Well, the demo is offline only, so you can still play the game, but when you try to pick a discipline it says "available in online mode only." I don't really know what they do, since I couldn't use them. I guess I could research it, but I didn't.

OK, so I decided to do research anyway. It is as I stated. There are features that are only accessible if you are online.

And some more info:

"Might & Magic Heroes VI is fully playable offline.

If you choose to play while connected with your Ubisoft account, you can gain access to extra game features. These bonuses are all part of what we call the Conflux and are only available when playing online. "

"While in offline mode you will not have access to your dynasty including custom heroes and any traits, dynasty weapons or the like. You will only be able to select one of the default heroes (same as the AI get, there's one specific might and one specific magic hero for every race (why it's not randomized is beyond me) when starting a game."

Uh. I thought Ubisfot killed their always on DRM and it was one time only register.

They've done something different for this game. There is a "path" you can choose at the beginning of the game, called disciplines, but unless you are ALWAYS connected, that part of the game is UNAVAILABLE if you are OFFLINE.

I guess you didn't play the demo or you would have seen this.

I can tell you that this game requires you to be online to receive all the benefits of the game. You can NOT use disciplines unless you are connected.

LOL Cutter, you just fucked yourself.

How did I miss this announcement? Saw the demo on Steam today and I can't stop playing. Now this is what PC demos are about. I'll be buying this game for sure.

And one thing I did notice that people here are going to be pissed about. Some features are locked out if you are not online, like choosing a discipline for your empire.

What trips me out is that almost every single player in the MLB has one of those bullshit things around their necks. I'm sure those companies that make them have made millions off of the players.

These are wristbands.


edit: Oh also these.


I KNOWWWWWW, but they claim to do the same thing...hence why I said around their necks...

I know this is WAY WAY out there. When I worked at Activision, they sued to get the license to Civilization, even though they had nothing to do with the game. And they won, hence you have Civilization: Call to Power. Maybe Bethesda is hoping in some way that can acquire Minecraft...

I'm very tempted to pick it up, but with Rage being available in two days it'll have to wait. And then Skyrim will almost be here...

I thought the same thing about Rage, and almost grabbed it, but then realized Batman is out in 2 weeks. I think I'll get more mileage out of that, so I'll wait. Might get Rage over the holidays...


Speaking of Batman...Green Man Gaming is having a 25% off sale right now. That's on any game as well. Only 13 hours left.
