Way too long? I wish Mass Effect never ended -- ever! But then it did, in the worst fashion possible.

What was the long story short on this.. Just checked out the trailer-- at least got me interested but clearly something(s) about the proposition concerned backers. What were those concerns?

It's worth noting that the 970 has a lot of headroom for OCing too, a few sites already had it surpassing the 980 in some benches.

O.O

Sweet. I shall await the eVGA 980 Superclocked w/ACX cooler.

That 970 is priced to move. $330 + a new release. Wow. I think the 980 is too expensive, but that 970....

I'm with you on that mate. I was waiting for the standard issue $4-500 even $600 and checked some sites and, sure enough, $329 on newegg for example, EVGA GTX 970 4GB with their aftermarket cooling, etc.

I'm very surprised-- this is damn aggressive. I'm impressed-- may have to pull the trigger on this for a second system replacing a GTX 570. Hell even my GTX 680 may get replaced.

ochentay4,

I'm with you. Strong narrative with ok gameplay can still carry a game for me. Saw the let's play's on this as well as the poor reviews, and I still wanted to play this for the story. I'll definitely buy it. Plus supporting Crytek's, warts n alls', a decent cause-- I don't want to see them go.

Oh look more enemies just teleporting into existence like DA2, just what the doctor ordered Rolleyes

Putting lipstick on a pig with the Frostbite engine and its funny to see so many people fool based on visuals alone. Hit that preorder button and ignore history if you want, I see no reason to believe they have learned from any of their mistakes.

Nope, saw the full demo at E3. Noone was "teleporting in."

Oh good, I see that Mike Laidlaw still doesn't give two shits about consistency, and still has mages that teleport around a battlefield even though their own lore says that teleportation of any kind is impossible in Thedas.

They're not teleporting they are moving at extraordinary speed over short distances. It's covered in the Dragon Age lore book called, "World of Thedas Vol. 1"

I have this preordered already.

Back when I was a young nipper playing Pool of Radiance, I would have given a testicle to play a game that looks like this. A little perspective is in order...

The turn-based tactical nature of the Gold Box games was awesome. DA 1 had this in spades. That was the game we were waiting for. I played that through 6 times.

Can't watch over my phone, but I assume "spammy" = button masher. If so (is it?) have fun with something not like either of those at all. (I do agree about the looks though.)

You may be interested to hear that the pause and play of Origins is back and improved in DA:I. They showed us in the demo @ E3 where you can actually set the game in the options to autopause after every command, essentially making the game turn based-- similar to X-COM, or you can do it all in realtime, or you can do a hybrid mixture of realtime and pausing when you feel you need to. Lastly, you can play the entire game (outside of the pretty cinematic stuff) in a tactical zoomed out isometric view if you prefer.


Chrs.

Witcher 3 is going to blow this out of the water.

I seriously doubt that.

As for the party, no they are always with you, they just are not showing you that part of the game.

Just to be really clear. I saw the full demo at E3. They are always with you. The only reason you don't see them is because the devs giving the demo zoomed in on the protagonist very close so the companions are no longer in view. Just that simple. You can even hear Bioware's signature party banter happening if you listen closely.

The only time your party will "shrink" to just you is when you employ an optional mount. Mounts are just used to take you from Point A to Point B very quickly, mainly over large swathes of areas you've already explored multiple times. You can fast travel as well.

Cheers

Yeah, tons of stuff can be interacted with, crafted, used in the environment. It's awesome as a possum. This is about the only thing I've backed I'm really happy about so far. Wish I had never given dime to Fargo and those jerks at inXile. And I'm pretty worried about the lack of progress from Project Eternity. With that last update it just seems it's hella behind schedule. And they had the gall to even ask if they should do yet more stretch goals with it. Just get it out the fucking door already.

inXile is the one doing Wasteland 2, yah? What have they've been doing that's disappointed you? I'm not up on W2 progress since it was kickstarted and then I saw a demo a few months ago on youtube. Are they f'ing it up?

That was an interesting press release-- different. Different in that it they addressed the fans and the shareholders separately and seemingly "from the heart."

Anyone know how big this world is supposed to be in comparison to something like Skyrim? I know this game is supposed to be an open world game.

The only quote I heard frequently was Executive Producer, Mark Darrah, saying (paraphrasing) that one single area of DA3 is larger than all of the DA2 areas combined. And there are multiple areas a la DA: Origins. Mounts have been implemented to ease travel.

I doubt you'll see a dev compare it to a competitor-- will likely have to wait until the embargo from journalists expire.

Also to clarify, it's almost an open world game. In Skyrim you can walk from one side of a relatively small continent to the other. You can't walk from one side of the continent of Thedas (Dragon Age) to the other. That would be a virtually impossible untertaking since, there, you're talking 10s of 1,000s of square miles. So what you have are open world explorable areas that you can jump between. That's how I understand it.

Cinematic trailer are completely useless.

*shrug* looks to me like the trailer was showing off the diverse environments, in which case, it does the job just fine.

no 32-bit OS support? Hardly surprising. In other news, EverQuest Next requires a video card made after 2011.

I actually non-figuratively chuckled out loud at that.

Except for all of EA's games that use frostbite 3, it's the engine that has had mantle support into it, not just BF4. That alone will be more than a handful.

I was thinking the same thing. In addition to that, it's important to understand that both consoles support Mantle as well. Whether developers capitalize on that is the question. Perhaps as the platforms mature and they're looking to push the consoles further they will. If they do, then it stands to reason that, at least, cross platform titles may have Mantle support on desktops.

We shall see.

Personally, though I'm a current nVidia user across all my gaming desktops, I have used AMD and am essentially for whatever gets me the best performance to value result.

I really hate how the highways are full of fake traffic and basically its just a slipstream minigame to speed out of it. The ships in the highway never seem to exit or exist outside of just traveling inside of it.

I don't think that's true, at least not completely. A few times I was slipstreaming behind a very fast vessel, it left the lane, and I slowed back down to a crawl.

Other times I was getting ready to enter the lane-- I was following another ship and sure enough he went speeding away in the lane- I was too slow on the uptake to get behind him so missed the chance.

HOW IN THE FUCK do you turn off the 'auto levelling' of the ship..when I rotate to some other orientation it wants to spin me back to 'level' which is ridiculous there is no 'right' orientation in space..better be a toggle for that

I believe there is. Check the gameplay options. I saw it somewhere. Autolevel or something...

BF4 still 32-bit. Didn't they say about a year ago that the next Frostbite, which we know now is Frostbite 3, would be 64-bit?

As far as Windows 8, game makers have typically recommended the latest version of Windows as a matter of course. In DICE's case, it may also be because of this: BF4Blog re Windows 8

I wouldn't worry too much about it.
