"A mixture of Fable and World of Warcraft," no wonder the combat looks so boring.

I'm sure glad there's nothing subtle about the rogue class in this game. Rogues are all about backflipping all over the shit and super flashy moves that'd get their bodies sliced and diced in a heartbeat

AWESOME

AWESOME GAME IT'S ALL ABOUT AWESOME

"A mixture of Fable and World of Warcraft," no wonder the combat looks so boring.

I think you could look at basically any semi-tactical game and say that, the only real issue I have with the games combat is the way it throws enemies at you in waves, sometimes to ridiculous degrees. Of course as long as they are human-ish enemies (aka, it's easy to throw them around) my mage can toy with them easily (force mage specialization <3 ) otherwise my big AOE spells tend to end up on cooldown which can cause some trouble...

Is this game worth buying solely on the fact that all girls have supermassive huge tits?

They don't. So your incentive falls flat.
Personally I pre-ordered it because I trust Chee, Kirby, Gaider and Hepler to deliver a well-written game. And the more Rhodes-inflected art direction is a big step in the right direction in terms of visuals.

I play a rogue :3

In this case, the Xbox 360 version is the one we were sent, and the one that was being played for review.

Besides that, the console versions are easier to record video on, given the option. We've got a good setup for capturing HD video on the consoles, with the video being run through both a capture box and then out to our TV. Capturing video on the PC, on the other hand, means the same machine is both running the game and recording the video, so the quality isn't guaranteed.

And, as much as it may hurt to acknowledge, more people will play the console versions. It's a better representation of what most people will experience to show footage from the Xbox.

I'm playing it on PC though :P

I see, that makes sense! I always thought there were special video capture cards that would do most of the processing, but I suppose I didn't know anything about that. Also, thanks for the polite response.

To be completely honest, the switch from console to PC made the combat seem less, I guess flowy would be the best word? Not as smooth might be a better choice. The combat just seemed to flow on console to me, not so much on PC, though that's just my opinion. I'm having a lot of fun with Dragon Age 2 so far, though.

PC is my preferred system of choice, so of course I'm going to gravitate towards it. From the videos I've seen about the console version of it, however, the playstyle seems clunky and awkward to follow. Maybe that's just because I don't often play console games, so the keyboard layout is something I've memorized whereas I don't have ever game console's controller memorized.

Thank you for also being polite!

So ah, when's the video about the warrior party members coming? This one said it'll be "this week," but you're rapidly running out of time on that claim

The DLC character Sebastian is a pretty good archer rogue as well, but I'll likely stick with Verric if just for the fact Bianca improves as he levels.

prouler:
..... wow you guys must be getting allot of revenue from DA2 to be giving it this much exposure.

That is how the escapist does things...New game comes out, and in the review section there are a few pages about the biggest game out.

You clearly weren't around when MW2 came out...

I should be done with it later today.

Alright, thanks much. I've been looking forward to this one!

you know what's funny? they don't ,both avaline and merill don't,Most women in-game don't. The only ones that posses a bigger then regular bust are :
your sister when varric is spicing up the story till he gets told off and she reduces to normal bust and isabella

*claps* you're a damn troll if I ever saw one

Edit: sorry was tired when posting.

just a quick question, is there really no reason to mention carver? I mean i know he can survive if you pick mage but I don't know if he passes the same fate as your sister does later in the game

Maraveno:

We simply thought it best to not spend time explaining and/or spoiling the whole brother sister thing and rather focus more on the other members, class abilities and such. Neither of them of have specializations as well.

I was not in any way trying to be a troll..

For the record, i could not understand 80% of your answer, you might wanna read through your answer before sending. Sensing amongst other things serious lack of punctuation.

fixed it

this looks good!

also is it just me or is the specialist tree denoted by Sam Fisher's goggles?

Grey_Focks:
I really need to do more of those power combo things. Probably help me get past my current boss hurdle...

Really? I one shotted that thing...

Those of you who haven't played Dragon Age at all shouldn't be making generallizations based on gameplay footage. I play a veriety of games, and of them all Dragon Age has to be the most unique. The only thing I can possibly compare it to is a fusion of turn based and action RPG games. While it may look like other titles, such appearances disapear the moment you begin to play the game. Initailly, the only reason for such things to be thought of is the new art style used in the sequal aloug with the more action orietated animations.

If you chose to play the game as a female character... will the Pirate girl STILL try to "get with you"?

At least in the demo, yes, she does.

It's really rather distracting that all the women in Dragon Age are so well-endowed, to the point where they can't wear men's armor. Maybe a wizard did it.

Of course a wizard did it! What do you think he spent all those years and money on wizard school for - casting fireballs? Sheeeeeeit if you can't cast "gonzo knockers for all gals on the globe" then you might as well just be a fighter.
