I've been going with a tank, archer and support (being a 2-handed sword wielding DPS Qunari) and i switch out the characters based on the objectives i've set out to do.

side note: would anyone else agree that really there should be 4 main classes instead of 3 seeing as you have a 4 man team? i'm constantly finding overlap (thus the above team structure of 2 warriors). I cant help but feel the game needed a pet to be the 4th character in some way

No, I've always liked that there are 3 classes because it gives you more flexibility. You can have each class represented and still be free to choose whichever fourth character you want. If there were 4 classes you'd never be able to take the characters that are the same class as you, thus missing out on their dialogue and banter.

Being able to take two of the same class means you aren't as limited in your selection. For example, you can actually take Iron Bull (being a two handed DPS type) and still have Blackwall or Cassandra tank without having to be short a mage or rogue. Just because two characters are the same class doesn't mean they fill the same role and being able to take two of a given class is a luxury I wouldn't want to lose.

I am actually playing the game in this way but sometimes it just makes me feel like something was less on the table.
I keep getting in this situation with 2 warriors (me and blackwall for example) where we're in the way of each other and the AI isnt smart enough to flank or move around so it can get a clean hit. could totally be an issue with the landscape but I feel like the further I get in, the more often it happens.

either way, totally fair point.

@dgtlty: had some great priest cards in GvG too. I'm surprised you're not using shadowboxer. it's like knife juggler but instead of activating on a minion play it's whenever someone gets healed. great for popping shields or whittling down enemies.

I'd like to see an F-Zero or a new Metroid game but I think that's about 60% of the people who are posting here...

outside of that I'd happily take a Viewtiful Joe, any whiff of that Fire Emblem x SMT game (i'm in the UK so not sure if thats coming here yet) and maybe some new Vanillaware 1080p goodness to drool at.

Grabbed 40 packs (only 1 legendary!) and made 3 new decks with some rough outlines for play. I'd hope to flesh them out over the next few weeks

It's certainly mixed up the meta and i can see some more viable "gimmick" decks being used for a laugh (looking forward to seeing a true form pirate Rogue deck).

i've had some time off to use up so spent it playing dragon age and catching up on old subscriber vids I either missed or don't remember.

Last week Sony announced that the console exclusive shoot Killzone 3 will make its multiplayer available to any member of the PlayStation Network.

This (to my knowledge) is the first time a retail titles multiplayer component has been released separately as a downloadable title on console (I know Crysis did it on PC a few years ago) and I think it can only do good for PSN, Killzone and PlayStation in general and that's because of another game I hold very dear to my heart.

Team Fortress 2.

TF2 is, in my mind, the best shooter I've played in years for a few simple reasons.

1. It's free

2. It requires a fairly low-end PC to play but looks fantastic on high-end gaming rigs

3. Valve keeps it hack free (for the most part)

4. It is updated on a regular basis with patches and content

These 4 reasons are the the essence of why I love my time with TF2 and I've said for a long time that Killzone 3 is my favourite console FPS title due to its class based similarities to TF2 so I think it's a great move for Sony and Guerrilla Games to put the Multiplayer and all the DLC maps out for free.

That being said, Killzone 3 doesn't give it all away up front like your average hussy, allowing free players to only advance to the rank of Sergeant 1 ( I believe that is a fairly low rank) and locking out custom match making, V.S. A.I. modes and the ability to make clans, nothing too drastic but still enough of an incentive for some to drop the $15 (EU and UK prices are TBA at time of writing) upgrade price to unlock the content.

This reminds me very similarly to TF2's pay to play system. While the base level of TF2 is absolutely free, you need to spend the minimum amount in the store (at time of writing its under £1) to unlock a 'Premium account' and so far it's worked out great for them with more and more people signing up to play and buying items.

Here's hoping Killzone 3 will be met with the same amount of excitement as TF2.

super good idea Patrick. Sunday Papers on RockPaperShotgun is one of my fav parts of the week so happy to have you do a similar idea with the GiantBomb style.

Stay awesome.

I'd never actually heard the APD theme, nicely put together

As far as I can tell, very little has been said about the rather awesome debut title from Final Form Games named Jamestown, a PC only Schmup', with brilliant 16-bit visuals and a fast paced, bullet-hell orientated feel, it has a very neat package for under $20.

But why does it matter? aside from being the only new schmup to hit a major gaming platform in the UK this year, it also has 4 player local coop which is a welcome addition to any genre of game. take a look at the video above and let me know what you think.
