Quinn, have a Snickers. You turn into a (Bioware) fanboy when you're hungry (for a decent RPG).

All of my "troll" stereotypes involving young men living in their mother's basement have been blown out of the water. Clearly the best of the Internet trolls are college professors.

InBlack, I am thinking that for Joe that kind of thing happens because of two things:

1) Joe is angry...that's his schtick. Many games he just bashes and than gives a fairly positive final number.

2) This is one of those games where you can list off the things you want them to improve or change and rant about the console UI......but at the end of the day you are still having a blast while you are playing it. Just like most (but not all) Bioware games.

I am not sure I would give it a 9/10 at release...but I would call it my GOTY and I am pretty certain that by the time the GOTY edition is released with all it's patches and DLC I will be looking back on it as one of the better games of the last 5 years.

Why is Revan a bad guy? My Revan wasn't a bad guy anymore.

You save "good guy" Revan from the Emperor...than he finds out there is a cult based on him and he shuns it....than he decides they are useful and uses them to build an army because neither the Sith Empire or Galactic Republic are worthy of ruling and goes all "I am not Jedi or Sith, I am just better than all of youm MUAHAHAHAHAHA"...and than you play this expansion.

Obviously it's not quite like that but I figured you would want the short and easy version.

I wonder if it will include the content the expansions added or if those will be $$ DLC.

I patched, but I haven't run the game yet. I think I will not play until they run another patch. I am way too attached to the appearance of my two characters to have them be screwed up. (MORE hair options would be nice though)

The romance options are optional, inclusive, humorous, and fairly well written for the most part. They will never be able to please 50% of the players, let alone 100%, but for me I think this is probably one of their better games, if not the best, when it comes to that particular aspect.

The combat of the game, to me, is more fun as a ranged class. I find the melee classes clumsy and awkward to control. This holds true particularly with a keyboard/mouse but I haven't found it to be much better with a gamepad. It's a personal preference thing though, some people obviously feel differently. I honestly find the mage class to be the hands down best class to play in the game.

What other people have said about "don't be a completionist" is true. The game will drain you quick if you let yourself get hung up on every single side quest. Do what interests you and move along...that's my advice.

My GOTY without a doubt. Can't think of another game that is better "overall". Like Origins, Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim...this is a RPG you can play, put down, and than play again and have very nearly as much fun. Perhaps more.

The cool thing about this is that PC and Ps4 Players are getting cross platform play - thats awsome - especially as the PC skill levels (on 4) dont seem to be as advanced as the console users.


I wonder if that is why there isn't a XBONE/XBOX 360 version coming....MS wouldn't authorize cross-platform.

Welcome back, Skyrim!
3+ years after it's release. My question is, who are all these people who haven't bought it until now?

No idea. Can't think of anyone I know who doesn't own it that plays PC games.

I wonder if it gets given as gifts. I have bought it a couple of times now as a gift to people who at the time it was released either didn't have a PC to game on or were too young to play the game. My nephews in particular come to mind.

8-core cpu and it'll still get hang ups upon switching screens..

my S5 is a pretty big disappointment from my S3.. my S3 was actually a better phone in a lot of ways.

That is very interesting to hear. I have hung on to my S3 exactly because it has been so awesome, particularly at multi-tasking, despite the fact that I have a small crack in the screen and I qualify for an upgrade with my carrier. Was thinking of finally upgrading to an S5 just before the S6 comes out because it will be dirt cheap. Not a good idea? If not I have been looking at a Note instead. One tablet/phone device to serve as my personal tricorder has a certain appeal.

The Uncharted games have been nothing but quality so far. Hell, even the Vita game was a blast. This new entry looks awesome as well.

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.

Before the Internet....all those years ago...my dad owned a Hallmark store. Remember those? Back then, Hallmark actually had a political lobbying company whose sole purpose was to propose and maintain non-Federally declared holidays. For example, they didn't worry about Thanksgiving and Christmas, but they are the ones that got states, corporations and even the Federal governement to pick a single day "unofficially" for things like Nurses Day, Bosses Day, etc. Previous to companies like Hallmark and American Greetings actually investing in the process, there were multiple different days (or none at all) depending on where you lived.

So you see, Hallmark isn't just the company you can blame for starting the Christmas sales in August (which is when they used to start selling their Christmas ornaments), they are also the company you can blame for this everyday is a holiday mentality. At least from this former employee's perspective. I am sure there were far more things involved in the process. It just seemed like every year we added a new "Day" to our card catalog and many times Hallmark was the only one selling those cards....until the following year. After a while I was like, "they are just making this shit up aren't they?" My Dad seemed to believe they were, not that he minded of course.

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

Err..Social and traditional media are very much questioning it. Every single headline focuses on the exclusive part. How is that "not giving a damn"?

Let's see...first few Google "News" search results are...

"Street Fighter V leaked as PS4, PC exclusive" -Ars Technica
"Capcom teases Street Fighter V as PC and PS4 exclusive" -GEEK
"New trailer reveals 'Street Fighter V' is headed to PlayStation 4 and PC" -Engadget
"Street Fighter V Exclusively On PS4 and PC?" -Twinfinite
"Street Fighter V has been revealed, exclusive to PS4 & PC" -Connected Digital World

This is the gorgeous, gray 20th anniversary edition PS4.

Wish they'd sell the controller in a non-limited fashion. I'd take one!


Yeah, I would too. I like my black system just fine but a controller in that style would be cool.

Some sort of record for me.....I have purchased zero items.....

We got bombarded with fall releases...I'm set for months...


The SWTOR eexpansion, Madden, NBA2k15, DA:I, and the backlog from hell. I haven't bought a thing from a "black friday" (or whatever) sale yet either.

I could not buy a game for a year and other than being envious of everyone else and their shiny new games....probably be just fine.

Holy hell DA:I is huge.

snip

(No disrespect intended with the snip, just didn't want to make a text brick wall.)

As the saying goes, things are worth exactly what people are willing to pay for them. I wouldn't pay 4 digits for anything having to do with PC gaming except a gaming PC itself, and only than if I was starting from scratch completely. A couple grand is a lot of money to me, regardless of what it's spent on. For other people a 1000-2000 dollar price tag is a drop in the bucket. It would appear Roberts has figured out that a great number of the people who are most interested in his game have a great deal of disposable income. I can't really fault him for seeing how much of it they are willing to throw at his game. It isn't like he is forcing the rest of us mere peasants to do the same thing.

TL;DR: I think the people spending the money are out of their minds but I don't fault Roberts.

Don't know if anyone is interested but here is a link to a "mod" that changes the tactical mode in DA:I to be more like DA:O.

It's on reddit, there are links and instructions, and it uses cheatengine. I guess that technically makes it a hack and not a mod...and you should probably (definitely) make sure not to have cheatengine running if you are going to use multiplayer.

I personally can not say whether it is worth it or not because I am not willing to go through the trouble and have always had kind of an old fashioned "I don't trust that" type relationship with Cheat Engine. Folks I game with say its great, so I thought I would pass it along in case someone here was interested since tactical mode is absolute shite.

What good mods are there?

If you don't use Steam's Workshop this is a good website for mods: Runic's Fan Site.

I haven't played for a while, but there is everything from skins to conversions to new character classes. Same for the second game.

I have heard that the "Wulf Mod Pack" is good for first time players. Smooths out the rougher edges of the game but doesn't drastically change things. You can find it under mod packs on the above linked page.

You guys Married? With Children? (cue the you-know-what theme)

Yes, but I have been "married with children" for years. The difference is that I bought a house last year where as I had been an adamant apartment renter for the previous 20 years. Houses have a way of sucking up your money and time, particularly the first few years you are in them and trying to take them from being a house to being a home.
