Had a weird realization about World Trigger when reading Monday's chapter. The series is a weird mixture of a battle series with a "professional video game" sports series. I mean there is no real video game counterpoint to what they are doing, but roles that everyone fits into are kind of like a class sytem. I mean what really made me realize this was that they are currently in a tournament arc and in this week's chapter one of the character's makes a comment about Takoma-2 choosing a specific map, which immediately sent my brain to selecting a map in a video game. It is kind of an interesting combination.

Killed 11 dragons now and still no trophy... seriously Bioware fix this shit.
I guess your 11th was the bugged one so try a different one?


How do you get specializations for party members? some of mine have them and some don't

also, can you respec party members
Once you have Skyhold just go out adventuring with them to give them their spec. It might require changing zones with them in the party.

a massive plushie

Ahahaha

haaaaaaaaaaaaaa

oh lawdy, you card.

THEY'S A SKELETON IN THAT PLUSHIE, SON.
And out of all of the characters he could choose, he chose freaking Chiepoo (sp). The most annoying character in the entire series (waiting for some one to bring up something worse than him that I forgot). Really, if you are going to steal someone's skeleton to use in taxidermy, the least you can do is make them into something not as horrible as Chiepoo.

I'm so over the glitched trophies this is getting ridiculous. Not only did my killing all 10 dragons trophy not pop, but my trophy for getting 10 agents hasn't popped and I have about 15. This is getting so dumb.

IF you didn't get the 10 dragons trophy, you'll need to reload a save game before your last dragon kill and kill it again. You should get the trophy then.

I will do that after I beat the game. My last save before I killed all the dragons was 50 hours of gameplay ago...
You don't have to keep playing on the save once you rekill the dragon. Just kill the dragon and reload your most recent (non-auto) save afterwards.

I really want to like this game, but I can't find myself getting excited by the cast. >.> Sadly I can't think of any better cast choices. I guess I am just going to have to take Nera, Bianca, and Terry and hope that they can carry the game for me or something.

Weird, I didn't have any issues with the agents one. No idea on any fixes for that one.

Beat Kingdom Hearts 2 Final mix last night. Also started going through the post-game content. Just have S ranking all the gummi routes (mostly need the EX routes which I haven't really bothered with yet) and 12 of the data battles left to go. And then it is on to Birth By Sleep!

Dragon Age Inquisition - Yeah, I think the series isn't for me anymore. I could list all things I thought were poorly done or implemented but then I'd be a negative nanny haha. At least DAO will always be there to replay.

A few spoilery comments:
Code:
The best thing in the whole game was letting that twit Hawke die (and save Loghain once more). So good, though he/she probably didn't die. It was also a nice touch to hear again from Morrigan and even the Warden (which hopefully will never show up in future games so Bioware won't have the chance to ruin the character.)

Code:
Bah, Hawke is a badass and you should feel guilty for potentially killing him off. :p

where the fuck am I supposed to find ferelden locks?

and can you have more than one romance at a time?
Random drop from human enemies in the Hitherlands as I recall (which can run out). Just don't worry about them, requisition quests are endless so you aren't missing anything by leaving it unfinished.

And no. Once you lock a romance you can't get past the "locking" point in any other romance. It is possible to flirt with multiple characters, and I believe even complete multiple romance arcs in a single playthrough by breaking up with multiple characters after their locking point, but the characters will hear that you are with someone else and not want to go to the next stage if you try and do a second one after "locking" a first.

So apparently this will be getting a PS3 and Vita release in North America.  Pretty cool, we don't get a lot of pure VNs on consoles here.

Edit: Europe too, it looks like.
Are there any additions in the console versions? I'd like to pick it up to support more VNs getting localized, but I'd hate to buy the exact same thing again. >.>

So I got to the scene between Roxas and Axel after the Station of the Heart battle (which feels new to me although I do recall one of Roxas's lines....maybe it was expanded for Final Mix?). Oh god the feels. If you'll excuse me, I need to go cry for a week as I beat up every remaining enemy using Roxas's keyblade while in final form.

Went through Emprise du Lion and finished off the last three dragons (making 10/10) and did not get the trophy for slaying all ten dragons because it is apparently glitched on every system. One of the dragons doesn't raise the counter so it says I've only killed 9 for the trophy, but my journal says I killed all ten. Come on Bioware...
If you have a save that is prior to killing any dragon load it up and kill a dragon again and the trophy should pop. Apparently the description is wrong and it is kill 10 dragons across playthroughs and not in a single playthrough.

Damn game has completely locked up my PS3 twice now. I hate having to turn it off without shutting it down properly. Plus, it did it last night right in the middle of saving, so hopefully I didn't lose much progress.
I chose to align with the mages over the Templars. I'm a mage, so of course I did! Cassandra seems pissed, though.
Time to get back to side quests.
Yeah had that happen to me a few times while I was playing on PS3. The few times it crashed while I was saving, it turned out fine, but it was annoying when I had several in a single day.

And you chose poorly. :p You should have gone with the Templars because their leader (post recruitment quest), Ser Barris, is a complete bad ass, which is much better than Fiona the stupid who you sadly never get the opportunity to judge for her part in causing the deaths of thousands of mages.


later you find out hawke had nothing to fear from cassandra. cassandra wanted the hero of ferelden or hawke to lead the inquisition its why she was looking for hawke. and i'm sorry i cant hand wave dissapearing when the world is in danger. the hero of ferelden has a much better excuse for being no where near this game. given what the antagonist can do to wardens.
Hawke was investigating the red lyrium that the Templars were using before anyone else even knows that the Templars were taking the stuff. He just went off the radar so that the Red Templars wouldn't find him (at least in the DA2 Templar ending, don't know what he says if you side with the Mages).Hawke was investigating what he thought was the most significant threat relative to the Mage-Templar war (Templars going crazy and gaining god like powers), and then he gets called in by Varric when Varric thinks that the Inquisition needs Hawke's help.

Actually, once you beat the game you can't get any new inner circle quests (and I'm not sure if you can continue any that you have already started or not). So best to wrap those and any conversations with companions or advisors before beating the game as they become considerably less chatty once you beat the game (one unique dialogue based on one ending event and then nothing) up prior to beating the game.

Ah, but thats just your companions personal quests. Not sure why Bioware did it like that, wouldn't it be better to allow chatting with companions after the game was beat...weird.
The companion personal quests are the best non-storyline quests in the game, so yeah finishing them off first is probably a good idea. As for why Bioware did it this way, I imagine part of it was to reduce the number of variables for the companion dialogues and also so you can't change a companion's opinion of you after you have had their epilogue talk in the end game feast. So now you are Varric's friend and you cannot change that since he has made plans based on that fact.

Also just remembered that if you don't recruit certain companions by certain points in the storyline, you can lose their recruitment quests for good. None are too strict though.

So out of curiosity anyone else manage to trigger any of the NPC/NPC romances?

Code:
Specifically they include Iron Bull/Dorian and Blackwall/Josephine (although this one is.....not a standard relationship and is very Orleasian).

Does the game let you know when you're at a point of no  return  and are going to lose access to side quests?
Yes, the final mission has a disclaimer at the bottom saying something like, "Hey once you beat this you can't do companion stuff anymore." I suppose there is one other point where you lose access to an area by advancing the plot, but there is barely anything unique in that area, so really doesn't matter too much (maybe one logging stand and five side quests that you have probably already completed).

Err, just so you guys know, you don't miss out on anything by rushing the main story. You can continue playing the game after beating the main quests just like in Skyrim. There are no side quests that you can miss. Just like in Skyrim, I tend to only complete side quests on my way to completing main story and faction quests. You can do the same with DA: I.

I feel like the game would be quite a choir to play if I focused on completing all the side quest in an area before moving on. All you'll do is over level yourself. I find it best just to hop between areas to keep exploration fresh. Feel free to skip a lot of those boring fetch quests, you don't have to actually do them. They are like the radiant quests from Skyrim, not necessary at all.

Actually, once you beat the game you can't get any new inner circle quests (and I'm not sure if you can continue any that you have already started or not). So best to wrap those and any conversations with companions or advisors before beating the game as they become considerably less chatty once you beat the game (one unique dialogue based on one ending event and then nothing) up prior to beating the game.

oh yeah

Yiazmat from FFXII



50 million hit points.

Obscence
Oh hey this is the guy that my brain first went through when I saw the title. Had hacked maxed out stats, so I was dealing max damage every attack and it still took me an hour of sitting there for my characters to take him down. Most ridiculous fight I've ever had in an RPG.
