When you set up a Visceral Attack with a gun shot, you can skip the visceral attack and just attack normally. If you do so, the next attack will do double damage. Normally a Visceral Attack will do more damage but certain weapons, like the canon will do ridiculous damage.

Definitely play it. The game lives up to the original Deus Ex. The DLC can be skipped, they are not great but the main game its self is awesome.

I'd be happy if they just made the main characters not look like a j-pop boys band.

I thought this WAS about the adventures of a j-pop boys band.

I'm just hoping they add in more depth to the combat. I'm also wondering how summons will be balanced or perhaps Runmah was purposefully made OP for the DEMO.

I'm just wondering if anyone else is getting the FF13 series on PC. I've replayed FF13 on PC now twice, the game certainly lends itself to speed running. FF13 on steam is only $16 bucks. FF13-2 $20. I'd say regardless of how you feel about the flaws of FF13, $16 is a steal for the game.

FF13-2 is more interesting since its been a long while since I played a game that reminded me of Chrono Trigger. Its quite a lot of fun to run around collecting monsters and jumping to different time periods of the same area lends it self to replaying the game (you can do things out of order to get certain items, weapons, monsters quicker). I enjoy it a lot and if you do things out of order it does make the game more challenging.

Lighting Returns is coming out on PC this spring so I'm looking foward to it.

If only we could get more JRPG release on PC.

I love FF8. Thanks to the FF13 series PC releases, I have the urge to replay FF games. I've beaten ff13 twice now in short order (second time a semi-speed run though) and I'm in the middle of FF13-2. Replaying FF7 currently.

FF8 and FF13 have similar problems but I love them both because I love the characters. Vanille is like Sophie 2.0 in my eyes so of course I love her. Thinking about it, what stands out for me in both games are the music and the characters. What can I say, I liked voiced FF songs. As you can imagine, FF13-2 is my favorite OST of any FF game.

As for FF8, I really enjoyed triple triad and the whole side quest involved with it. Completing this side quests more or less takes care of your magic junction needs. There isn't even a need to hunt down the rares magic if you can't be bothered, the games not so hard that you need to min-max much.

Thats good to know, I'll have to post that in the BSN forums. Though its probably been figured out already.

Tried that and she keeps using her basic range attack and very slowly makes her way to attack with the sword.  It's very frustrating....

lol, Ah well. I guess the AI is not made to handle knight enchanters well. I like to keep my mages as range support so? Sorry. kik

Go into the tactics page and deactivate every skill except the energy sword skill. Then Vivienne will spam that sword skill.

Yeah, I feel like I'm being punished for my archer rogue inquisitor.  He's basically a liability during a dragon fight, and his AI is pathetic at times.  He just stood in front of the dragon during a flame attack and got roasted a minute ago. 

Is there a safe zone during the flap attack?  I feel like most of my problems would go away if I could manage that damn pattern.  It doesn't seem to do any damage up close, but that kinda defeats the purpose of putting an archer in the back lines. 

The Archers role is to do damage, it doesn't matter if its up close or far way. The advantage of being an Assassin Rogue is that you can dish out damage with hidden blades up close where Long Shot would be infective. Just move your Archer close to the dragon to avoid that wing flapping attack and don't worry about not taking advantage of your range. If your not a rogue then I'd suggest controlling the party rogue yourself. Making use of a Rogue properly leads to the fastest Dragon kills possible.

The equipment thing is definitely a good point.  I was running around in the same armor for nearly thirty hours on my main character because I found something so insanely special that no other piece could really matched it.  Had to spend some time crafting to make things a bit easier.  It was never an issue since my mage and rogue do a great job of staying hidden during combat and the two warriors keep all the heat off of them.  The only real difficulty comes from enemies who spam attacks like the dragons that hit the whole party or those damn terror demons who jump attack back line party members out of no where.

Also, I think my Solas has a fucking deathwish.  He actually ran straight through the dragon's AOE lightning attack and died on the spot.  I'm still cleaning the spit off of my computer screen after that particularly loud rage session. 

Sometimes its best to set the AI off during the Dragon Battles and just micromanage them through the tactical view. This way you can move your ranged characters within the safe zone during a Dragon's wing attack and not have to worry about the AI being stupid and dodging right back into the damage zone.

I play an Archer Rogue myself because it turns out the AI handles rogues the least well of all the classes. Though a Party of 1 tank + 2 mages + Archer is pretty darn effective.

I'm quite happy that DA: I is winning so many game of the year awards, it deserves it. DA: I feels like my new skyrim.

Also, I'm not surprised someone could solo the game on nightmare with a Rogue Archer, its the most powerful class in the game. And stealth is the most powerful ability in the game.

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.

Hawke when to Weisshaupt, I think its a perfectly legit reason for him not to stick around. There can only be on protagonist that represents the player so Hawke sticking around would be very awkward.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: December 11, 2014, 09:22:04 PM

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.

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.

@Blace

Wow, I hope you went threw the main quests at least enough to get your extra companions. I really hope you didn't spend 75 hours with only Cass, Varric, and Solas. Have you not even reached Skyhold? Did you spend 75 hours without your specializations? God, I hope not. As I said, there are no miss-able quests and you can keep playing after you beat the main story.

Its quite subjective if its better than origins. I'm a big Skyrim fan so DA: I is right up my alley.

Just like with Skyrim, I focus on main quests and hunting down dragon shouts and only do some miscellaneous quests when needed. The game is far more enjoyable that way. DA: I is the same way, I focus a lot more on the main story line and big secondary quests and as a result the game has a much better pace.
