I played the demo on PS3 and enjoyed it.  Honestly I think some people are really over-reacting...

I completely agree that removing auto-attack is stupid.  I really don't see the point.  The game plays exactly like a faster-paced DA:O (which is good)...except that whenever I'm not using a special ability I have to sit there mashing X.  It's just silly.  But I'd still rather have that than have the game go for the full-blown action RPG route.  I don't want Dragon Age to be an action RPG.  As long as I can micromanage in my pause menus I'm happy.

One major improvement for the console versions is that you can now order characters to move to specific locations (even if there is no enemy or object there) without having to take direct control of them.  Of course you could always do that on the PC, but it's something that was seriously missing from the console versions of DA:O.

I'm not sold on the new art style, but I don't think it's as bad as people are making it out to be.  I'll probably get used to it.  I do appreciate that the game runs better than DA:O did.

Is there actually a 'complete lack of control of the inventory' in the final game?  Sure you couldn't access it in the demo, but it's just a demo and the option was clearly present, just not accessible.  I'm pretty sure the real deal is going to have inventory management...

Oh yeah, and the writing is subpar.  I realize this is just a demo, but seriously.  In the opening segment, the templar bitch is all "RARRRRRRGH THAT ISN'T WHAT HAPPENED" because it was apparently such an unbelievable story, so dwarf dude who is really just a short fat human adds a few of Hawke's family members to the events and suddenly the story is believable.  lolwut

Uh...if you really think the presence of Hawke's family members was the only difference between the two stories then you clearly weren't paying attention.  One version has Hawke and his/her brother casually slaughtering hordes of darkspawn while exchanging witty banter and the other version has Hawke and his family desperately trying to escape with people getting killed.  Yeah, the overall structure is similar but the devil is in the details...

Wow, so much hostility...so who here has actually played the game and knows what they're talking about?

Andriasang has in-game screenshots, which honestly I think look a lot better than her 2D design.

Milla still looks like a streetwalker, though.

There were actually a ton of announcements from Telltale today.  Somebody ought to compile them all into a single post...somebody who isn't me, 'cause I'm busy.

I liked the idea of changing between the characters on the fly

Then play Ys Seven

I'd play it.

I don't care what a game looks like so long as it is fun.

One possible exception would be some of the early 3D stuff (like PSX era) in which characters were nothing but a handful of jagged polygons.  That really hasn't aged well.  I can play older sprite-based games just fine, but there is something about the early years of 3D games I can't stand.

When a thread is locked you're not supposed to start up a whole new thread on the exact same topic.  That sort of defeats the purpose.

I run Linux!

What are we talking about?
3235  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: DUKE NUKEM FOREVER IS BACK!!! on: February 14, 2011, 12:47:57 AM
This should have included some kind of 'making of' DVD.  If ever there was a game that needed it...
3236  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs with puzzles or subgames on: February 12, 2011, 05:05:45 PM
The Xenosaga series is actually quite good for puzzles.  Nothing really hard, but they're frequent and keep things interesting.  Not as much for minigames except for that arcade game thing in the third one, which was actually pretty fun.

I had fun with Awakenings, but it really bothered me how disconnected it felt from the main game.  Like your decisions there didn't actually matter.  And yeah, the ending was kind of...abrupt.

The Stone Prisoner DLC was great, though I got it for free as a pre-order bonus.  If I recall correctly it was kind of overpriced if you actually had to buy it.  I also enjoyed Leliana's Song, but then I liked Leliana.  I feel like I'm in the minority there.  If you didn't like her then you wouldn't get much out of that DLC.

We know precisely nothing about what Atlus meant by that.  Could just be a port.
3239  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: 2011 - The best year ever? on: February 11, 2011, 01:08:02 PM
Don't we already have a thread on this?
3240  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Catherine from Persona team on PS360 on: February 11, 2011, 02:36:08 AM
The game hasn't even been announced for anywhere outside of Japan yet.  It would be odd if there was a demo...
