The more I'm seeing of DAI, the more it is a 8/10 game and not the 9/10 that reviewers have often given it.

I'll see weeks from now though!

it's not a 9/10 game imo.  not by a long shot.  8/10 being generous... loadsa bugs on the PS4 version as well drops it to a 7/10 for me.

lots of red blue and green everywhere. anyone would think it was dropping hints about another franchise, but surely not?

Forgetting about the bugs and PC issues and smaller annoyances that I may get, I think it'll be at least a 8/10 for me. I'm already engrossed in parts of it and I haven't even played it.

For the record I generally consider DA2 a 6-7/10 (aka alright enough, at least on discount, but not worthy of being called Dragon Age 2) and DAO a 8-9/10 (aka a RPG classic). So basically I'm saying that so far I may enjoy it as much as, or possibly more than DAO, but just maybe not hugely, especially since Dragon Age isn't the franchise I love, but instead Mass Effect. I'm looking forward to really liking my overall experience, and it may be a classic game to me years from now, but I may not love all of it, and may prefer aspects of Origins.

EDIT: Oh, and the hints are more than just in the colors. There's a lot, lot, lot, lot more than that. Like holy crap. The colors to me is mostly just color coding themes to make them stand out more (..mostly). The substance is in the dialogue and cinematic design as a whole.

The main quest is ace and they begin to reveal that there is much in the background that will interfere in the story sooner or later.

Secondary quests notwistanding, it's really cool.

I suppose now I'm about 17 hours in and stuff.... yeah. things of note so far. my character is going to make it his mission to get Cassandra and her bootylicious ass naked. the war council.... yep that works. I'm picking up party members and stuff. closing breaches is fun. the game area is huge. hints of the actual endgame are a bit thin on the ground at the moment.

however. cassandras ass. Shocked

i'll revise my score back to an 8 even with the annoying dialogue wheel bug. (ps4)

Coming from perhaps the harshest critic of DA2...  You guys need a reality check.  There will always be bugs.  The bigger and more complex the program, the more the bugs.  This game is highly complex and huge.  There will be bugs, especially at release.  The great majority of the bugs are minor ones.  Gamebreaking bugs should be bitched about.  Do you princesses know what a gamebreaking bug is?  I doubt it, if you think these are worth bitching about.

The game is massive, the amount of stuff to do rivals Skyrim despite having shortly over half their time between games.  The main story is very good and doesn't have the flaws that DA2's had.  On the reveal side of things, the game answers more questions than it asks, including some of the biggest (arguably THE biggest).

Game of the Year.  9/10.  Better than Origins.

If anyone has finished the game instead of being awe'd at the fact that primary colors exist, would love to discuss some of the endgame reveals.

Spoiler:
Is Flemeth truly dead now after that sacrifice?  I certainly hope not.

Corypheus said something that startled me.  "Dumat, ancient ones!  If you exist, if ever truly existed, aid me now!"  What?  IF?  Corypheus was high priest of Dumat, he was on such a tier that he was one of the handful chosen to breach the Golden City.  Yet he has never had absolute proof that Dumat was real?  We were always under the impression that the Old Gods of the Tevinter Imperium were among their people and interacted with them regularly.  God-kings as it were.  Is it possible that the Tevinter Old Gods were no more than the fevered fantasy of tyrannical madman just like the Maker is?

Steelcan countered my point on this, saying that archdemons come from somewhere.  I countered saying that the best explanation for the sun was once Helios riding fiery steeds across the sky.  Simply because we have only one story to explain something, does not mean that story is true.  Just look at the Dalish markings if you want more proof of that.  If you romance cancerelf, he tells you he found out in the Fade what those markings truly are.  They don't "honor the old elven gods"... they're slave markings from Arlathan.

Yes, that is quite the unfortunate angle for a screenshot.

Someone at Val Royeaux will offer an invitation to a party that Cuntienne is throwing.  If you're smart, you'll send assassins.  If you're not, you'll go to it and Cuntienne will join you.  I don't know if you're too late, but your sake, I pray that you are.

Credit to Norlond for "Cuntienne."

Done DA2 for the first time.


Lv 26 Spirit Healer Mage
Legacy DLC Warden Gear
Varric - Friend
Isabella - Left me in Act 2 due to just barely not enough Friendship
Sebastian - Friend
Fenris - Friend, Love Interest
Aveline - Friend
Anders - Half Rival, Murder Knife
Merrill - Rival
Carver - 50/50, Grey Wardens
Chose Mages
Final Party - Carver, Fenris, Sebastian (Merrill, Aveline, Varric present - Anders dead and Isabella gone)
If I could have fit more, I would have tried to put Aveline and maybe Varric in the party, but that's okay. Not Merrill. Ugh, not her.

DA:I Story Spoilers ahead:
When Morrigan showed us the Eluvian Hub and said that there're some that lead to "in between" spaces and that she was hiding in one of those, I thought that the Warden could be in one of those as well for whatever reason, but no, a Wartable thing revealed they are just wandering around looking for a cure for the taint, which is stupid because why would everyone say the Warden vanished when they're happily wandering through the country? Either smth's off with that Wartable report or the writers are just stupid again, goddamnit BW

So my guess about everyone's panic over the warden dissapearing being defused when she comes out of the loo and asks what all the fuss is about was pretty much right?

There so needs to be a way to customize the Inquisitor's pajamas... er... formal wear I mean.  The one we've got looks like a buttoned body sock. And don't give me the minimized clipping excuse - Hawke rocked the Hugh Hefner look.

Lord Seeker Lucius was level 7 when I fought him.  I just met a level 15 nug.  This punnypig has twice the combat experience of the leader of the seekers.

I just thought that worth a post.

Bioware has said they are looking into making the outfit customizable like for example choosing the color scheme. Whether it happens or not is left to be determined.

what this game is missing is castle anthrax.

Joking aside it is pretty awesome.

Don't go straight from playing a dwarf to playing a Qunari. It causes whiplash.

Stumble from the ashes
Lost enigmas in the dust
I cannot remember
Though they tell me that I must

Sky is torn asunder
Fear that breaks the brave
Will not drag me under
Climb out of the grave

Maker’s sign or false divine
This mark of worth I wear
Hardened are these fateful scars I bear

Stand side by side
Carry all as one
We can bear this weight
Stand side by side
We won’t come undone
For the hands that will carry us home are
Touched by fate

Hold on
Hold on to what you strive for
Hold on
Hold on to what you fight for
Hope

Get up and fight...
BREAK

Through the fade or leafy shade
Or scorching desert sands
Lift the people from their pain
Unite and take a stand

Breach into the future
Reach into the fade
Stamp out the abuser
Staff and bloody blade

Maker’s breath or wind of death
It matters not to me
Be it one or none or synergy

Stand side by side
Carry all as one
We can bear this weight
Stand side by side
We won’t come undone
For the hands that will carry us home are
Touched by fate

Hold on
Hold on to what you strive for
Hold on
Hold on to what you fight for
Hope

Stand side by side
Carry all as one
We can bear this weight
Stand side by side
We won’t come undone
For the hands that will carry us home are
Touched by fate

Fight for your values
And fight for your friends
Fight through this blight
Find the light at the end
Through the age of the dragon
Through chaos and hate
The hands that will carry us home are touched by fate

Hold on
Hold on to what you strive for
Hold on
Hold on to what you fight for
Hope
Hope
Hope

I just got it this weekend and I'm loving it so far. Although I do feel a bit silly for spending 30 minutes in the character creator making my perfect Qunari Mage, only to have his face covered by magic war paint. Now he looks like a lost member of Kiss.
