thats why whenever i’m ill i stay in the same position and dnt move, I’m still in the town with the big octopus, I dnt play it as much as I played DA/Skyrim but im enjoying it as i go i heard dark souls was insanely hard so i thought it steer clear
of it, I didnt play the witcher as it was on the pc but i saw a music vid for witcher and thought wow i think im gonna love this game
I found the kraken boss to be very challenging. I actually had to look for a video on YouTube to beat it. I couldn’t figure out how to bring the tenticles down so, I could attack them.
I’m having fun with Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. The only downside that I’ve found thus far is that if you go stealth/back stab early on in the game that it’s not very practicle. I ended up restarting so, I could put those points into something more useful.

if DAO had rivalry it would be Sten moody bastard just like a Klingon i always had morrigan leilana me & Alistair or Oghren lol i always took Morrigan with me even as a mage i think if DA had multiplyer it wud spoil the storyline wen it came decision makin
bout WOW i just no bout it from the news and that south park episode & what a friend does she spends all day & night on it
i think i playd diablo many yrs ago but cudnt gt in2 pc gaming xcept serious sam now that was an insane game
My party primarily consisted of Alistar, Leliana and Wynne. Their personalities coincided the most with my own agenda.
If there had been a friend/rival system in DA:O then I probably would of had a rivalry relationship with a majority of my entourage. I even found Wynne hard to stomach at times with her consistent ”advice” to the Warden.
Multiplayer mode just wouldn’t work with DA:O or DA2 because of the role playing aspect of the game. Plus having two heroes would be insanely over powered. As a rogue I was able to solo a majority of the game on nightmare mode. As an arcane warrior nightmare mode is laughable. I was even able to solo the high dragon on my mage. (Granted, it took over twenty minutes to kill.)
World of Warcraft is extremely time consuming. My main Aaleyah is my primary focus. If I’m one WoW then I’m usually on her. I’m currently working on collecting vanity pets and mount or gaining achievements in my spare time.
I never played Serious Sam. I’ve always been partial to MMOs. I played Ultima Online, Ragnarok Online and Dark Eden before I started playing World of Warcraft.

i meant i killed morrigan in witch hunt i dislike anders 4 wot he did in act 3, so im takin the templar side this time round i romanced merrill my 1st playthrough this time i romanced isabela cause shes awesome and i like her
i always wanted to play witcher 2 im waitin 4 it to come out on console not to offend i never understood ppl who play WOW im only goin by that south park episode and thats bout it lol
i think DA3 will b out end of 2012 or at the least 2013 i just hope that they scrap the multiplayer idea, not every game needs it! War games like GOW fine Dead space 1/2 Dragon age Elder scrolls fallout do not need it! Just sayin
If rivalry had existed in Dragon Age: Origins my Warden would of been Morrigan’s rival. I ended up leaving Morrigan in camp whenever possible. Through a combination of gifts and dialog I befriended her. Honestly, I never felt a sense of camaraderie with her on my cannon Warden which was a human noble female rogue. However, when I was playing a mage I found it easier to see her point of view.
What I do in World of Warcraft is nothing like what was on that episode of South Park. I’m the main tank for our progressive ten man raiding team in my guild. Every week I get together with nine other players to go up against the newest raid content. I’ve always enjoyed raiding. I actually look forward to doing so every week.
Blizzard was running a special for World of Warcraft players. If we signed up for a year subscription then we get Diablo III for free. I also received an in game account bound mount. If I chose to purchase the Diablo III collectors edition then they’ll compensate me with four free months of WoW used towards the one year contract. I’m actually not a Diablo fan. I signed up for the contract so, I could get the collectors edition essentially for free for my boyfriend.
If I’m not mistaken didn’t the other Diablo games have some kind of online feature? I think I recall one of my friends speaking about how he used to play Diablo II online with other players.
I wholeheartedly agree that not every game needs to have a multiplayer mode. I’m not sure if I would of enjoyed Dragon Age as much as I did playing with someone else. I like to be able to take my time with action RPG games.

now i feel bad 4 killin her ah well from the rumours ive read theres more dlc 2 involve morrigan flemeth leilana also DAO warden is over done with and that DA3 will be 4 times as bigger map as DAO goin 2 Orlais Tevinter a new heroim lookin forward to DA3 the story i heard itll mages vs templars of course these are still rumours im hoping for a 2012 release, im thinkin Sandals story isnt done with
if u have a save then u dnt have to to start again legacy & mark of the assassin u start at home you interact with a statue and Varrick retells your story
im nearly done with DA2 still gotta do the main story 4 act 2 just been trying to get friendly with Sebastian and rival with Fenris and Anders to get 2 achievements
You shouldn’t feel bad about killing Flemeth. Flemeth is hardly a fair godmother, she has her own agenda and she uses both the Warden and Hawke to further that agenda.
Hands down Flemeth is my favorite character from the Dragon Age series. I hope if there’s a Flemeth-centric DLC that it’s no less than superb.
I’m going to wait until all of the DLCs are out and then replay DA2 as a mage romancing Anders. I’m unsure if I want to try Anders rivalmance or not. I’ve been told by several people that you get more story in his rivalmance than his romance.
I’m looking forward to DA3 but I haven’t been following the site or forums. Hell, I haven’t even had a chance to sit down and play The Witch II: Assassin of Kings yet. World of Warcraft consumes almost all of my free time.
twiggymaster666 replied to your post: Elaboration: To Sandbox or Not to Sandbox?I agree but I loved DAO more than DA2, I take it by mods u play on the pc
DA:O > DA:2 by far. The story in DA:2 wasn’t bad but they failed to portray the importance of Hawke. Hawke’s biggest accomplishment in the game was prolonging the Qunari invasion. Beyond that the events in the final act would of happened with or without Hawke’s intervention.
DA:O makes a lot more sense over all if you use the community made mods which restore cut movie scenes and dialog. Personally I found playing as a human noble tied the story together the best. As second house to the crown the Couslands had an obligation to the country.
twiggymaster666 replied to your post: Elaboration: To Sandbox or Not to Sandbox?I play on my 360, I suppose most games are sandbox type games u could try Dead Space 1/2 for a more abc type of game. I prefer games where u can go a, b, f, z if that made sense u don’t have to stick to one storyline
I’m not saying that sandbox games are bad. I know there’s plenty of people that enjoy them. I just personally enjoy linear games with more of an in depth story. If I find a sandbox game that actually has a good story line I usually try to play out the series of events the way it would make the most sense in the context of the story. (I’m OCD like that.)
As for console gaming in general? That will have to wait until when/if I move in with my boyfriend. I don’t own any console systems (or a TV for that matter). The only console games I play are the ones I have emulators for on my PC.
does it seem like every new game has to be sandbox or have a sandbox feel to it? I’d rather have a linear story that has depth than be able to roam randomly about.
I just got accused of hacking on Jarven IV in League of Legends. I love when I rank first with him. Sadly, I’ve yet to get a quadra or penta kill with him though.
I was highly skeptical when the theme of Dragon Age II was announced. Some of my skepticism turned out to not be unwarranted.
I finished my first play through was as a sword and shield warrior. I noticed very quickly that BioWare had tweaked the threat mechanics and not for the better. I struggled all game to hold any semblance of aggro.
In Act I I stumbled upon Anders (those of you that played Dragon Age: Origins Awakening will remember him as the apostate your Warden saves from the templars.) and apparently somewhere between Amaranthine and Kirkwall he had his face severely altered. Luckily as a PC player I was able to rectify this with a mod from Dragon Age Nexus. Once Anders looked like himself again, I decided he’d be my romance option.
I’ve yet to see Isabella or Merrill’s romances but from seeing Anders and Fenris’s romances I can say that the 10 year span does not work well. I felt very disconnected from my romance option for a majority of the game.
That feeling of disconnection also applies to my various other companions. I wasn’t able to interact with them whenever I chose to. Unlike in DA:O Awakening there wasn’t any random points throughout the game where I could click on an object and insight a conversation about the object or area. From time to time my companions would toss out a comment here or there but nothing of substance.
The whole game takes place in the city of Kirkwall and it’s immediate surroundings. The various dungeon, cave and city crawls are very repetitive. You’ll see the same scenery over and over and over.
The plot is a bit hit or miss. The events in Act III have been foreshadowed for awhile now. Hawke (or someone else depending on how you look at it.) just happens to become the catalyst.
Regardless, if you can turn a blind eye to the plot holes and other faults of the game it’s actually pretty fun. I’m going to play through once more as a mage (pictured above).
