A role-playing game as huge as Dragon Age: Origins is bound to have a few bugs hiding amidst the code. A new patch just arrived on Steam that clears up a few big issues for the PC version, including the possible corruption of your character data
Bioware = Awesome.
I concur. I haven't run into any big bugs in my time with Dragon Age thus far. Pretty impressive considering how many different little dialogue/quest branches there are.
it was released today in the UK, just picked up my limited edition this morning, now i just have to finish work and race home!
I love this game, as much as I enjoyed Mass Effect and KOTOR, this is a true return to form for Bioware.
Love BioWare. Dragon Age has me at home for the last three days playing it when I should be doing something more productive. Oh well.
"when I should be doing something more productive" you are using your hands to 'produce' fun for your eyes and ears, that's productivity right there.
Bioware is the bomb diggity, i just finished what was probably a 10hr session with this game, gotta love rpg's. That flemeth 'incident' blew me away
Yes thank god for dragon age and the Witcher . I can't stand bethesda games and their "genericness" , nor any of their clones . To each there own obviously , i just find bethesda games , especially Oblivion engaging and well written , even if big in scopes . I just dont care about your gigantic scopes if it's all about killing random mobs A in your 99th poorly designed cave or with the only thrill of being assaulted once more by a weak thief with golden loots. I find that Bioware games since the golden era of baldur's gate to be a far more perfect balance of freedom and plot . And it that area in was barren for year in the fantasy genre , if not for the excellent the Witcher as well .
I was suprised with how good the witcher was. I absolutely love dragon age but i would almost say that I liked the witcher as much. The characters in the witcher were awesome, every single npc had a role. Abigale, the witch in the swawp, and the reverand etc...that was a cool part of the game.
They need to patch it so that you can actually get more freaking healing potions and injury kits. Right now, once you buy a vendors limited supply, they're gone. You can make them from plants, but once you harvest them (from the main areas at least), they are also gone. You can get them from slain enemies, but again...you can only kill them once. They also don't tell you this up front in the game, so you could drink healing potions like it was penny beer night only to discover that when you need them for that massive encounter (say, the final Keep battle) you realize to your horror that you're screwed when the merchant has no more to sell. Or am I missing something? I hope I am... Edit: I guess one could farm plants through random encounters via map travel, but for god's sake why must it be necessary?
Because it is, now get farming. You adventuring n00b. Play a game like BG2 and then come back. And also realise that potions are easily obtainable. N00b. Can I get my fanboy glasses fixed please, they're smeared with sh*t.
I hope they send a patch to the 360 for the framerate issues, The game is great, but these issues are getting annoying.
I don't think a patch could fix that. The framerate issues have to do with the older hardware. It's like trying to run Crysis maxed on a 5 year old PC. It's enevitibly going to run into framerate issues. Same with Dragon Age, it's probably really pushing the 360's hardware. Makes me wonder if Mass Effect 2 is going to have those too, since all the videos they've shown are from the 360 version and it looks pretty smooth.
most major 360 games have framerate issues: fable 2 l4d (2 too i guarantee) mass effect gow 1/2 gta4 cod4 bioshock last remnant (ff13 will) (tekken 6 probably does)
hum tekken6 runs at 60fps everywhere . Hence the bit subhd graphics .
It is Oblivion(ish), but it has a more fleshed out world. The atmosphere is the same.
Feels more like a fleshed-out World of Warcraft to me. The combat system especially.
I just finished the fight with the ogre. Damn that was a tough fight, I'm playing on normal difficulty and was tempted to lower it but I did it in the end. My trusty pooch dealt the final blow, he was the only one left alive. Took me quite a few attempts though, it's very similar to BG in the difficulty stakes, which I'm happy about. I'm enjoying this so much, absolutely epic game.
I found out how to see morrigans nude breasts. after she has joined your party , use another character walk away from her ( putting her infront of the camera blocking your view)she normally fades away , but if you take her clothes off it defaults to the bra underware and if the camera is close enough when she sways back and forth the area where her nipples would be goes invisible (like u are looking through her character model) when this happens go to your menu and put her original clothes back on and TA-DA when ever she sways back and forth it removes her outter clothes and u can see her breasts nipples and all thanks... and enjoy zefult
You dirty bugger lol :P
This game seems awesome, but Bioware has to fix a bunch of things for the PC version, ie memory leaks and the abnormal (and unnecessary) usage of 100% of the CPU, which is causing many PCs to automatically shutdown due to overheating after playing the game.
