I enjoyed Inquisition even less than DAII, which is going some.
Waste of a promising series.

I enjoyed DA2 even with all of it's flaws. I liked how well they used that one city. Now if there had just been more of them.

Inquisition killed my interest for the franchise, didn't even bother checking what the DLCs were.

It was hard but I just dropped difficulty for that fight. Didn't loose sleep over it :)
Haven't gotten around the sequel yet though.

Fingers crossed. At this moment I've pretty much done with ESO content wise.

BioWare’s Aaryn Flynn confirms that Mass Effect: Andromeda will not have a season passBioWare’s Aaryn Flynn confirms that Mass Effect: Andromeda will not have a season pass

Am I the only person that can hear the faint, distant, yet unmistakable sound of an alarm bell. There is no way that a corporate monster like EA will give up on wringing every last coin they can from those who play their games. Mark my words, the lack of a season pass will only mean some other disingenuous monetizing scheme, followed by some fuzzy statement about how it lets the consumer 'play the game they want.' Cynical, I know, but leopards seldom change their spots... they just stop calling them spots from time to time.

I think it was already confirmed that multiplayer at least has microtransactions.

Intel Core i7 7700K benchmark previewIntel Core i7 7700K benchmark preview
Lolssi Avatar
I'm sitting here with empty Z170 waiting for that sucker. I already ordered new bios chip to make mobo compatible (since no usb flashback).
Then again my RAM hasn't arrived either. But if the Kaby isn't gonna appear soon I might just get 6700K.Reply
Dave James Avatar

It's a toughie. Normally if you're going for an i7 I'd suggest picking up the most recent version, but if the 6700K ends up becoming a much cheaper alternative when the 7700K finally goes on sale it'll get really hard to recommend the Kaby Lake chip.


But I've got a feeling the price of the 6700K is going to stay high even after launch. So if they wind up selling for the same price you might as well grab the slightly more efficient Kaby Lake i7.

This is like the 3rd attempt at 'comedy' I see on this site in recent memory. I really hope they realize it has struck out.

I understand this is gaming site and games should stand on their own. That said I don't think Gunther or Adam should be inspected as characters if you haven't read Icarus Effect and Black Light.Reply
Robert Zak Avatar

Yes, games should stand on their own. So Gunther should be inspected without the need to read a couple of books (that were written over 10 years after the game in which he featured - should everyone have withheld commentary on Gunther for that long?).


As for Jensen, I'm not inspecting his character so much as the quality of his writing, which is, in my opinion, shoddy. Maybe there's more to him in the books - I don't and I won't know - but that's irrelevant to me if it fails to translate to the games.

I'd go with ESO since I can mostly solo it :P
But if we're talking actual gameplay against other people then PlanetSide 2 just because of the sheer size of it.Reply

It's actually really great! Protip: Play on the Dominion, it has by far the best storytelling. And if injustices bother you (like slavery), there are some missions that will have you grinding your teeth until you can do something about it. It's also brave enough to push the point that xenophobia, prejudices, and fascism create monsters.


I've actually enjoyed the storytelling much more than I ever did in Skyrim. Nothing I did in Skyrim ever mattered and it all felt so shallow. ESO at least has a few really cool, meaningful choices which remind me of New Vegas. Also! The dungeons are incredible, there is just so much detail on offer, there. And there's one on the Dominion side (a Fighter's Guild mission) where you step in and it's like walking into a piece of concept art. It's breathtaking. My partner (who's an artist) and I were just wandering around taking pictures. It was astonishing.


And yeah, you can mostly solo it. There are a few forced group dungeons but their story has nothing to do with the story of the zone. Also, that's another cool thing. Each zone has its own story as if it were a chapter in a book, there are things that connect them together into an ongoing narrative which leads to an ending, but every zone is self-contained. So you can complete a zone and just decide then that you want to stop. The game has great stopping points so you can just put it down for a month or two, then come back to start fresh with a new zone.


I can't praise ESO enough.


Edit: One other thing I'll say about ESO is that if you like diversity and representation, it's pretty great in that regard. You can have an overweight, old character who's capable. There are a lot of GSD characters there as well (Gender and Sexual Diversities, which is a more inclusive term than LGBT). Hell, there are interspecies GSD characters, it's marvellous.
