Nah, I'll just tell them about how Rob has bad tastes in character creation. :P

In my heart, I provided a link.

In reality, I forgot to hit ctrl-V.

http://www.twitch.tv/rpgfancom/b/588197541

Shame :P

Thanks, now I can give this link the to the BSN which will go crazy over seeing Sera, Vivienne, and Val Royeaux.

You didn't provide a link for the stream? Is it archive on your twitch page? You know you can do that, right?

Taelus, I'd just like to salute you for a great stream and for showing of nightmare. Its was a pleasure to finally see a streamer who could handle nightmare. Everyone else I've seen was playing on normal or casual.

In honor of proving Rob wrong, you need to change your title from "some music guy" to "the giant killer".

P.S. I was WissenschaftXII on the stream.

Ok, I'm ready for this stream but the twitch channel is empty. I hope chat isn't empty when you start.

For what its worth, the prologue is only about 1 hour in length and ends on a high note with the formation of the Inquisition. It involves less talking and focuses more on being a combat tutorial and introducing your starting party members.

So I think it might grab your attention a bit faster. The devs have stated that they originally planned to have a talking/investigative start to the game but felt that took away from the pacing of the game. So instead you are thrown into combat, somewhat reminiscent of Knight of the Old Republic, in how the game seemingly starts off in the middle of an action scene and you eventually figure out whats going on.

So hopefully this prologue will grab peoples attention faster. Its not Irencus' dungeon, which to be fair was interesting the first time you ran through it but became tedious in latter playthroughs. DA: I's prologue is rather short and looks like it can be rushed through pretty quickly.

For anyone wondering, Bioware showed off the first hour of the game on a twitch live stream yesterday so thats how I know about the prologue.

Ok, thats good news. I'm ok with long load times if its all front loaded when you first enter an area.
38  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: November 11, 2014, 04:20:53 AM
I love you, Taelus. Feel the bro love. :P

I stayed up to see all the reviews. Its crazy. lol

Question: Exactly how long were the load times? When you first entered an open world area like the hinterlands, how long did it take to load?

P.S. Thanks for the heads up, after credit sequence!

The press ban lifts this Tuesday so in two days I expect to hear a lot more about the game from you, Taelus. Feel the pressure. :P

I just reviewed Lords of the Fallen for the site. 

Long story short, it's not very good.  Cool ideas but some serious balancing problems and the whole thing is mighty glitchy. 

Ah, ok. Just found your review. Thats a shame. Why do companies ruin their games with buggy releases? Disappointing. Looks like we got to wait and see how Bloodborne turns out.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls 2 on: November 05, 2014, 11:55:22 PM
True enough, but I found the original Dark Souls quite easy. Especially once you know the best items you can get early on with the master key. I always spent like 45 mins running around collecting items before proceeding through the waterway. I could have skip that but I'm also obsessive with grabbing all the loot in the game. The key to the souls games is a slow and steady pace and trying your hardest to separate enemies so you can fight them one on one.

PaleRobbie, have you checked out Lords of the Fallen? Its a much shorter game compared to the souls game but its a pretty decent souls clone. I'm surprised it took this long for souls clone games to appear.
42  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls 2 on: November 05, 2014, 10:37:12 PM
It does make me wonder how some people claim Dark Souls 2 is easier than the previous games.
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: November 03, 2014, 08:23:22 PM
If I remember correctly, I believe they showed that your able to hide the character portraits. Perhaps that doesn't hide the whole UI, I'm not sure. Still, I'm pretty sure that you'll be able to hide most of the UI.
44  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: November 03, 2014, 08:14:08 PM
Thats a nice review you made and makes me hopeful that Bioware has listened to its fans and avoided past mistakes.

Small correction: Bioware has shown recently, in its own twitch streams, that there is a button to hide the UI. So hurray for screenshot fanatics!

Dragon Age 3 went gold yesterday. Bioware has confirmed that the first DLC released shall be for the Multi-Player and will be free. It will consist of extra maps and I think loot.

 Looks like they are building on their experience from ME3 MP and will continue providing free DLC for the MP of their games. That is really good news. We shouldn't have to pay $5+ for a two or 3 maps and it looks like we won't have to.

As for people disliking the women in DA 3. Well, the running joke on the BSN (Bioware's forum) is the this game's real name is Dragon Age Anaconda. The straight ladies are getting much love. lol

Here is some info on the crafting system:

Good news, you can customize the look of your companions by customizing the armor they wear.
