Even though I just got a PS3 about 2 months ago, it has been sadly under-utilized. Demon's Souls is calling me, haunting me, and MGS4 is sitting in its case somewhere wishing I'd finish it, but lately I've been playing more 360 and PC. The main focus has been beating Dragon Age.
So I picked the PC version about a year ago now, and played it, loved it, but then got stuck on a couple tough boss fights and basically gave up. Yes, I had the game on easy (I think), but I'm thinking the problem was I just hadn't built myself a very useful character and did know which party members to pick or how to level them up well. Since then I've done quite a bit of reading about strategy. I'm now a mage instead of a warrior and I've got a pretty good party around me so that while I'm still playing on easy, I pretty much never die unless I'm up against a real badass or I'm just getting lazy and not pausing enough. Yes, I know - I really must suck if I'm on easy, but honestly at this point I really just want to see the game through to the end and don't want to have to retry certain parts multiple times. It's amazing how much easier it's been this time through. One of the bosses I got really stuck on last time (probably last March or April or so) was the Brood Mother. I could not beat her! This time through I beat her on my first try. Yipee! So I guess playing on easy is just the way I'm enjoying the game - it works. Anyway, not sure if I'm going to get into any of the DLC, but Dragon Age 2 does look pretty enticing.
