    I was ambivalent until he tried to equate Destiny with Diablo, at which point had I been in the room I would have dug my heels in until the bitter end to keep destiny off the list. They say in movie...

    Iron Bull was okay, I liked him, but never thought he was amazing. Everyone else seemed to go nuts for him. He was on my dragon killing team, if not my main group, and I didn't mind him and had fun w...

    Maybe I am just too cynical, but I can't get hyped for this. Nothing made me excited, not the music, not the x-wings and tie fighters, the most emotion generated was the sheer incredulity at the light...

    @jackg100: Second edition d&d has the best spell list of any game, many were the result of incorporating the spells created at the table by players in gygax's campaigns, and the result has a lot m...

    @dbene: Sure, there are fans of all three, it comes down to taste, but no one can argue there wasn't a vocal backlash against DA2 and ME3; I played both to completion and felt let down by both person...

    @ildon: Probably just as well, I spent the time to do it, and it seemingly still got things wrong when I imported it for my game. (Alistair is king in mine, when in my games he ended up a drunk, with...

    @atwa: I would have to disagree, but everyone has their own tastes. The combat to me feels more like a mix of DA2 and Origins, with a bit more emphasis on the Origins side. Any of the more difficult ...

    @fear_the_booboo: It did have high points, not to mention some memorable characters, which is one area I think Inquisition stumbles a bit as none of the companions have been a stand out thus far.

  • MrWakka posted a message on the post I've Seen the Light on Dragon Age, and It's Glorious.

    @dbene: Well part of that could be the inability for EA to decide what the series is. Origins was a decent, if not great, old school rpg. It had flaws, its setting being a bit bland and shying away f...

    Its a good game, one I am enjoying after the travesty of DA2, but I have had a few issues pop up. The Keep didn't work for me, I made selections, and noticed a few of them seemingly did not take in my...

    I have an unhealthy obsession with cloth maps, this collectors edition has no cloth map, so I probably wouldn't get it otherwise, but for a shot at the bonus stuff for free, why not!
