Which is exactly why I called it "modern business model".
Activision are putting in absolutely minimal effort, and reaping massive monetary rewards, it's the perfect business set up. However, I personally don't care how many extra blankets activision get to make out of money, what I care about is quality games being released that look like they're from the time of release, not 5 years previous. Which doesn't currently happen.
I did it all for the lulz.
I played multiple times but not all the way to the end. I only played my mage to the end but I also watched most of what my wife was doing with her warrior, so I saw a lot of the different possibilities. I didn't actually play any of the elf origins so I definitely want to try that still. And I'd quite like to finish the game with my noble origin because that origin seemed awesome.
I'm still trying not to say too much because if you plan on playing through a few more times I don't want to spoil anything.
I thought the same thing about the name pronunciations. I just kinda ignored what the characters said and pronounced them the right way in my own head.
I made this!
I miss the PokemonTCG, but I dunno if this is worth the effort.
When they said "sit down", I stood up.
The game is still in it's beta, but once it's released, you will be able to purchase cards free with points that you build up in game.
As for all the new cards, it's very different from what the game used to be, but it's very easy to pick up.
Everytime I spoke to him throughout the game, and the topic of his blood line came up he expressed in no uncertain terms that he did not want to become king. Right up until I convinced him to marry Anora, but even then he was hesitant. Hell, after he became king I made a sarcastic comment about asking for thanks, and he got really angry about it. I was able to persuade him into accepting it happily enough though. I think next time around I'll let Anora rule by herself.Yeah, me too. Did Alistair want to be king in your game? Basically there's a moment earlier in the game where certain dialogue choices determine whether he wants to be king or not. For me he was still hesitant at first but then decided he wanted it. I thought keeping Anora involved would help bring stability to the realm and lessen the burden on him, but...
That's fantastic actually. I thoroughly disliked her, and I can't really put my finger on why.So Alistair passed the death sentence and executed Logain, after which Anora refused to marry him and had to be imprisoned or exiled for the good of the realm. I was actually really happy with this outcome.
I'd like to see how that turned out also, but I get the feeling that Alistair would probably try to kill him or turn against you if you let Logain become an ally.Though initially I kinda liked the idea of making him a Grey Warden. I had wanted to kill him quite badly all through the game but like you said he's so awesome that you almost don't want to when the time comes.
Haha, that's awesome. That's an idea actually. I could load my Alienage save and just do all the different options in the ending. A huge reason for choosing the dark ritual was that Morrigan said she was going to leave immediately if I didn't go ahead with it, and I felt like I'd need her in the final battle. I hear this isn't true though and she actually stays until after the battle regardless.Well, actually, my wife played it as a woman and Alistair was her love interest. At the end Alistair wouldn't let her sacrifice herself so he insisted on performing the killing blow. The dark ritual had not been performed and so Alistair actually died. Oh man, she was soooo pissed.
As I recall, I let Jowan (blood mage fellow) perform a ritual that killed Connor's mother, to save him. Both of them actually seemed really annoying, like Connor was on Joffrey's level of poncy spoiled annoyingness, I was really tempted to just run him through. But I sent Morrigan into the fade to battle the demons, and that turned out to be quite interesting aswell.How did you deal with the Connor situation?
Yeah, ever since seeing all of the picking sides kind of options, I sort of knew I would play it twice. I'm not a huge completionist, but now it just feels like I've only played half of the game. I think I'll do all of the origin stories soon, and leave the Mage until last, and then actually play the entire game again as a Mage (unless I prefer one of the other origin stories) and do the exact opposite of everything I did the first time, just to get the scope of things.I only played my mage to the end but I also watched most of what my wife was doing with her warrior
I guess I'm pretty cool with spoilers in this game now, I'm about 95% sure I will use my original Elf Rogue game to load into DA2, so all of the other possibilities will really just seem like alternate canon to me.I'm still trying not to say too much because if you plan on playing through a few more times I don't want to spoil anything.
