In fairness, it sounds like he mostly became unintersted because of the sidequest quota. And honestly, that can kill my interest in any game, even if the story is sweet.Evonisia said:I think I remember the original Dragon Age's Zero Punctuation mentioning that despite having a twenty five hour playtime there was still a desire to see the ending. This gives off the opposite message so I suppose DAO was doing the MMO thing where you are just entertained enough to keep going but never massively enthralled and DAI is sweeter but burns out faster. Ah, piecing together Zero Punctuations certainly makes understanding new ZP opinions easier.
Well, if you choose to be an elf in Dragon Age: Inquisition, you're Dalish, so... not at all enslaved, but the part about being a mage is true enough, even though it is not true for the Dalish.Jman1236 said:I just started the game myself and not only did I roll a mage but also an elf so becoming the chosen one is kinda besare since elfs are enslaved and mages are disliked in this world.

No, the game is good from the start. What people refer to is the end of the first act, which for a lot of people upgrades the game from good to great.Laurents van Cauwenberghe said:I heard a lot of people saying that this game becomes good after 20 odd hours. Is it just me or is that fucking mental? If it's true however, I'd like to give it rename Dragon Age: Inquisition to Dragon Age: Stockholm Syndrome
There are 10 optional dragon bosses and one mandatory.Darth_Payn said:But there are still dragons in this game, right?
But yeah, it wouldn't be a BioWare RPG without the INCREDIBLY finicky equipping system.
But you got me with AC:Unity having the guy's head disappear and leave his eyes and teeth floating there.
That's because a lot of the side quests in DA:I are just you doing the same thing over and over. Every new area has the same rifts to close, shards to find, and 'connect the dots' star puzzles to solve. The other chunk is person A telling you to go say something important to person B, quest completed.Zachary Amaranth said:In fairness, it sounds like he mostly became unintersted because of the sidequest quota.

Well, except Saints Row. I can screw around in those for hours. Faff quota? Well, I passed that four hours ago, so...Full access!
You can do that on the consoles too from what my friends have been telling me. I never considered them anything important enough to attempt it for the ones I needed to do were always instant.Morthasa said:The war table missions do weigh down the pace a bit, but most of the rime they are not essential (even instant in some cases). Later on in the game however there are some war table missions that can take upwards of 20 hours to complete (!)
Luckily if you are on PC and naughty, you can con the game by ALT+TAB'ing, changing the date and back again and returning to the game. Don't know if this may be done on console (might require exiting the game in their case).
I am playing it on the PC and haven't encountered any issues aside from not being happy with the KB/M controls when in tactical view which they are working on. There have been many reports of driver issues on the PC version as well, but I have been lucky and not encountered any. If you do the digital download route, you can download the game off Origin (not a third party key site) and play it for up to 24 hours and get a full refund if you don't like the game or encounter problems. I did that with Battlefield 4 when I had server issues with multiplayer.Caramel Frappe said:If I get an Xbox One for Christmas, this will be the game i'll get it for. Heard to many bad stories about it going over to PC.
Glad it's still a great game despite some of the heavy issues. Also 3 hours? ... That is a bit much, but ... won't kill me will it?
