    Dragon Age Inquisition. Well, replaying it at least. The grinding and fetch quests were obvious in my first playthrough, but on my second it's getting to be a bit unbearable. I think I'm going to skip the Hissing Wastes in this playthrough because urgh. The Forbidden Oasis wrecked me.

    Actually getting nostalgia for DA2. I might start up another playthrough for that one after DAI. Also, I'm probably one of the 7 people in the world who enjoyed DA2, so it's nbd for me to replay it again.

    oh hey, let's go to the city

    oh hey, let's go to the city in the dark

    oh hey, let's go to this one area with a ridge and some bandits

    oh hey, let's go back to the city

    oh hey, let's stay in the same 5 zones the entire game and just change it from night to day


    DA2 in a nutshell. anyone else reading this, you're welcome


    although this is from the guy who thought DX:IW was a (relatively) worthy successor (and DX is GOAT for me so that's saying a lot), so take all this with a grain of salt

    but DA:O is still miles above DA2.

    and DA:I I won't even touch after the abysmal user scores and vids I watched. You could just be playing W3 instead...

    Won't deny the repetitiveness of the DA2 environments. Other than that, and several other clearly rushed issues due to the extreme time constraints, I had a good ol time with it.

    lol. It's a good thing CDPR delayed W3 last year - there are tons of annoying comparisons now, but DAI would have been utterly wrecked if W3 kept its original release date. This is coming from someone who prefers the DA games btw.

    I'm running through the HALO remastered with my 7 year old as my wingman. It is epic!!! We've replayed the final level of 1 and 3 too many times to count.

    I don't even get how people hate DA:I. It's so awesome.

    Such a huge difference between critic (8.5) and user (5.8) Metacritic scores. Interesting. It's old enough now to be showing up in the discount bins, think I'll pick up a PS4 copy.

    I didn't look much at the single player but a friend wanted to 4-man the multiplayer and I watched some videos about the p2w cash shop and almost punched myself in the face. as far as the single player goes, I was already waiting for w3 to drop :tongue:

    also, this. although it's not really that interesting post-GG (post-Gerstmann, really). we all know critics get teh paids for teh metascoerz. I have a friend in game dev (and multiple others have commented on this online) who says his bonus is related directly to the metascore the game gets.

    Seems like a lot of the 0 reviews are about 1) poor performance on PCs and 2) people who felt like they had to farm a lot. Personally I felt that they provided more than enough side quests that I rarely ever felt like I was farming. I like the busywork in the game, but apparently a lot of people didn't. They want all plot. I prefer breaks from the plot so it worked great for me.

    100-150 hours in and still playing Witcher 3. Bought Arkham Knight, which my son finished in 3 days and I told him "Yep, gonna play it as soon as I am done with Witcher 3."

    So, I am thinking sometime in 2017. Hey look 47 more question marks just showed up......gotta go see what they are because they are QUESTION MARKS and you can't NOT see what they are!!!!!!

    WoW is a staple for me, I play on and off, though lately I'm obsessed with getting my mains to 100. Also still trying to finish Dragon Age 3, Sims 4, and the newest Mortal Kombat. Will have to check out Mercenary Kings.

    Dragon Age Inquisition. So far it's OK. Glad I got it from GameFly though because I would not be interested in owning it.

    I picked up Valkyria Chronicles in the steam sale, but I'm not very good at it so I've been going back to Civ 5 when I get frustrated... I've also been playing some Pokemon in memory of Satoru Iwata :( RIP Mr Iwata. Thank you.
