No wonder the game looked dull before — had to save all the power for this.
I didn’t intend to play today, but I just tweeted on this account, which displayed my Dragon Age avatar, which makes me want to play.
Do you think Blackhall would have liked to be here for this? I think Blackhall would have liked to be here for this.
Comparing Dragon Age to Far Cry 4 (which is absurd, yes), I really like how you can see a bear and simply avoid crossing its path.
Three free card packs in Hearthstone! \o/
Oh, wait, updating my decks is the part of the game I enjoy least.
Worth noting that, unlike most recent games, Driveclub!Weather looks just as good as the videos.
Also, it just crashed again. Sans weather.
Regardless of the server issues which would have happened anyway, it’s a shame that Driveclub didn’t ship with weather in the first place, because this new game is kind of amazing.
Turns out I’m not very good at driving a Ferrari in the rain. But it sure looks gorgeous from here in the back of the pack.
Downloaded the weather update for Driveclub. Tried to start a race in the snow. The game crashed. HAHAHAHA.
Just finished the first big linear mission in DA:I (Alexius), and it’s a much better fit for Bioware’s talents than their open-world envy.
Protip: don’t pick the same button for “use” and “jump” if you don’t want your protagonist to look like a bumbling idiot half the time.
The Uncharted footage looks as clinical as if it were shot with an HD camcorder. I’d say that’s much more suitable to first-person than third-person games, which need more cinematographic visual effects.
The foliage is lovely, though.
I absolutely love the idea of Link’s horse avoiding trees because “real-life horses don’t run into trees” — they’re not nature’s bikes.
My first contact with Dragon Age: Twenty minutes waiting for an EA rep to answer on the support chat. Ten minutes to get him to delete the extraneous Origin account that was automatically created without my consent as soon as I launched the game. Ten minutes to undelete the account, because it turns out that closing it did not and would not free my PSN ID to be linked with another Origin account. Then fifteen more minutes to actually transfer my PSN ID from one account to the other — which hadn’t been my initial request because I was afraid it would screw up my good Origin account, and with good reason.
Needless to say, I’m not really in the mood to play Dragon Age right now.
As a UX guy I’m so annoyed, I have to fight the irrational urge to put the disc back into its box and return the game to Amazon.
Hurray for having to jump through hoops because each major publisher insists on having its own fucking online network.
