I've played for first few hours. The controls can be annoying, and I quickly started a new game with a mage instead of a warrior. Much more fun.
Anyway, DA:I seems to have soo much more content than both DA:O and DA2. And it really feels like it rewards you for exploring.
I can only applaud to BioWare.

Ranadiel: I hope the choices from DLCs are included in the DA Keep.

Such as?
What happened to Morrigan in Witch Hunt? Is Architect alive at the end of Awakening? And so on.

But I've just received the Beta invitation on Wednesday, so I could check for myself. Looks really great so far...

Btw, I just watched this gameplay video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0G9Np6TqVo
The visuals are great, but I find the characters "acrobatic movement" disturbing. Seeing Varric and his somersaults with crossbow seems to be a bit too much...

300+ hours of a great fun for something like 60 EUR doesn't feel expensive, at least for my. And I'll yet have to see a game that offers me as deep and rewarding experience as Laxius series.

Anyway, this is a topic about Girlfriend Rescue, not about Aldorlea in general. And since I felt its "level" structure and fairly "action" gameplay made it very different from the other RM games I played I brought it to attention here.

I'm not sure if it was mentioned here somewhere or not, but according a BioWare writer Patrick Weekes an "average" DA:I playthrough should take about 80 hours. https://twitter.com/PatrickWeekes/status/506607674708873216
This certainly sounds as a promising number...

Visuals are just a small part of the whole experience. Story, level design and gameplay are important, too. And Aldorlea usually shines in these department - with Girlfriend Rescue being no exception.

Has anyone here tried the new Aldorlea game Girlfriend Rescue? http://www.aldorlea.org/girlfriendrescue.php
I've already played a few hours and so far it seem to be very different from let's say Millennium. There are multiple levels, each with limited number of enemies and one boss. This combined with not being able to save everywhere means tough fights, no grinding and fast-paced gameplay. Very enjoyable so far.

Doom & Destiny looks really hllarious: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=93788887
Plus, I am glad that Aldorlea's Millennium made it to Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92968395

 Well, I can't say anything about the Normal difficulty - I haven't tried it.
 Anyway, DA2 no doubt has many mistakes. Yet still, the main Bioware strenghts - story presentation and characters, were done excellently there, and I loved DA2 just as all the other Bioware games. And, to be honest, some of the flaws are just Bioware "signatures", Mass Effect (one of my very favorite games), misused copy/paste locations, too...

...DA:O on higher difficulties was slower paced and methodical. You could still break the game by spell nuking through doors, but in general the fights were a lot more tactical, making them (to some people) more fun...
I played both DA:O and DA2 on Nightmare difficulty and DA2 seemed way more difficult and tactical to me. For example, fighting Corypheus in Legacy DLC was just insane. Actually, DA:O had a bit weird difficulty tuning. Normal fights were usually harder then bosses, at least for me.
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: June 10, 2013, 03:31:40 AM
 I played both DA:O and DA2 and I liked the DA2 fights way more.
 Gameplay-wise, I consider DA2 to be the best of BioWare games, even more "fluid" and "responsive" than ME3.

 It's true that the combat system is a weird hybrid, though - it should either have been true turn-based (something like Fallout, with action points based movement), or more action. This way, the friendly fire can be incredibly annoying, because you party requires plenty of "babysitting".

 Indinera (Aldorlea Games) has been my favorite game developer since Laxius Power.
 And although yet unreleased, Underrail seems pretty promising to me, because of it similarity to Fallout 2.

Please tell me someone besides me played Omega. I know it's $15 but I can't be the only one.
I played it, too, and I liked it. There were some parts with really good atmosphere, such as the mines, and overall it was interesting to see more of Omega. Plus, I really like Aria.

...but arriving at a disappointing destination does not make the journey worthless.  10 minutes of confusion at the end does not make the previous 100+ hours a waste of time.
Exactly, I've never understood why an ending, good or bad, should destroy the previous fun. It makes as much sense as claiming that "Life sucks, because I'll die eventually.", for example.
 Anyway, I'm curious what will BW come with in the EC, 1.9GB seems to be a lot of content.

CD Projekt and Cyberpunk RPG - this is a pretty exciting news.
