Haven't played the first one yet. I think I'll pick it up tomorrow since it's kind of dirt cheap now. Hopefully a Mass Effect 3 announcement will follow this.
played when it came out, and sold it. I'll wait a complete all dlc/addon/game sale on steam to replay it :)
I spent countless hours on that game. If you like fantasy style wRPG's you will probably love it. I have easily logged 150+ hours into the game across the different play throughs.
Personally, I feel they should fix the first game before working on the sequel. Dragon Age is so chocked full of bugs, issues and problems that it isn't even funny, many PC gamers can't even play the game (or the expansion) because of how much it randomly crashes on many rigs that are abundantly over the recommended specs. Since 1.3 I crash to desktop about once every 3-5 minutes, thing that's basically preventing me to play Awakenings. The official technical support forum is an absolute craptstorm. In the end, I'm not surprised anymore, given on how they focused on nickel and dime-ing us with DLCs, and given that they've probably been working on the sequel for a long time, I wouldn't be surprised if patching the first game is handled by three interns in a basement. As much as I love their games, Bioware has definitely steered towards a very unprofessional and low-quality route. I've been a very loyal Bioware fan since Baldur's, but with Dragon Age they simply demonstrated that they aren't the "kings" of RPGs anymore.
They never were the kings of rpgs but alright... and you say urs has bugs? I plated mine and got all the dlc they gave me and the only time i really seen any bugs was after the ps3 firmware update which they fixed. Maybe you should just let pc gameing die as you can see there must be no money in it.
I have it on the PC and the PS3. The main bug is dex and cunning stat modifiers. The game is playable. Try it again and download the patch for the PC. See if it works this time around. 1.3 is fixed now. It wasnt compatible with the PS3's firmware. I never had problems with it on PC though... try reinstalling?
"players will assume the role of one of the few who escaped the destruction of your home. Having been forced to fight for survival as a result of this, you must gather the deadliest of allies to tackle the ever-changing world, whilst amassing fame and fortune, to seal your place in history. " Sounds like another generic bioware story
Well i hope its a lot better then the 1st one.
i enjoyed it , but even on pc i disliked the controls and AI , a miffled mix of baldur's gate era , and action games for the sae of consoles . Anyway half of the greatness of the game came through modding , with a lots of things forgotten , bugged , or not done well enough by bioware . I hope it wont be just DA 1.5 with a new story , but i have confidence in bioware thus far
I expect there to at least be a more interactive convo system like with mass effect where your character at least talks.
doesn't sound very inspired, dragon age 1 was not that good either, demon souls was so much better so i will skip dragon age 2
idk about that i think dragon age had a better story but demon souls had better gameplay ..i think i enjoyed dragon age more then demon souls i play both games all the time.not saying demon souls sucks it just lacks story for me.love both games.
Doesn't mean you have to hate on Dragon Age. Dragon Age was/still is a blast. I'd argue that Dragon Age and Demon Souls aren't really even in the same category of game and shouldn't even really be compared.
what? not that great? dragon age fuckin rocks i didnt like it at first but then came back to it and couldnt put it down
Yeah, I really enjoyed the game. The storyline was good, as was the pacing, which is something most WRPGs do very poorly. The game wasn't perfect, but I had no major complaints with the game, except for all the DLC (but that's optional, after all). I'm really looking forward to this, even if it is the same graphics/gameplay with a new story (although, of course, hoping for more than that).
Dragon Age 2!!! HELLL YEAH!!!!!
I'm working through the first one now and I'm enjoying it. Need to play Awakening before I get this one though.
i hope they allow your character to talk in this one..
Yeah it's kind of weird that they didn't since all they would need is a male and female voice actor, like Mass Effect. I guess there was too much dialogue.
so getting two
The original on PC, matched with the mods on DA Nexus was pretty spiffy
I'm really happy that they said it is getting a visual update (I wasn't a fan of the DA graphics...). Also, BioWare fixed everything people complained about with ME in ME2 so here's hoping they do the same for DA2
Actually many people complained about those "fixes". They turned an RPG with shooting elements into a shooter with very few RPG elements.
people always wanna bitch about things don't they. i believe it was gta "fans" who asked for a more realistic gta, thinking that gta sa was ridiculous. now rockstar gave them what they want, they suddenly act like rockstar don't listen to them. on topic, dao was the first of the series, so it's definitely not going to be perfect. if bioware did it with me2, they can with da2. as good as developers are, there will always be an imperfect first time. mark my words, the next gta for current-gen consoles will be one of the best this gen has to offer. they will learn from gta 4 and make it the way it should be, not necessarily according to mass demand.
I hope there is an improvment in the graphics compared to the first one
Told ya: http://n4g.com/news/559835/...
They'll need a major graphics overhaul, and to make the combat a bit smoother. I'm not saying change the combat into a completely different style like fully real time tps or anything, just make it smoother and better to use. Kotaku has already listed a fair amount of information.. http://kotaku.com/5582305/d...
me about Dragon Age: Origins is that i didn't think, graphically, it held to Bioware's standards. the story and characters were typical Bioware. that is to say, they were great, i just felt it lacked graphical polish. my wife plays the hell out of that game, even after getting the Platinum in it, and she's looking forward to this one. she's currently excited for Fallout: New Vegas, since that's actually launching this year. it'll keep her busy until Dragon Age 2 hits. i still have yet to beat the first Dragon Age. it was the same way with Mass Effect 1. by the time i got around to beating it (my wife had beat it 3 times, so i was kind of burned out from just watching her play it), Mass Effect 2 was out (and my wife had already cleared it). i have this back catalog of RPGs to beat. i've yet to beat Fallout 3 (and yet i've invested over 40 hours in the game just roaming around and doing side missions/discovering stuff). i'll try and get to Dragon Age: Origins once my schedule clears up.
