I am getting seriously tired of the game crashing to desktop. I hope they patch it soon. It is frustrating and it is happening more and more. I am trying to enjoy the game but it is hard when it crashes so much. How many crashes do you guys have on PC? Mine are starting to come every half hour now.

I downloaded the update to visual studio that I read would help but it did not. It has crashed twice in a row now when I am exiting the equipment menu.

OH FFS now it crashes in less than a minute! This is officialy the worst Dragon Age game. Say what you want about DA2 but it was playable at least. I start the game run for 20 seconds meet some enemies attack them and boom crash to desktop.

My game hasn't crashed once on PS4 so I don't know how you can say this is the worst one when what you are experiencing seems to be in the minority. Also why I hate PC gaming, among other things. I personally think this is the best game in the series to date.

There's very rarely pop-in on the PS4 version. Only maybe once has a tree or something not loaded when I'm walking, but have had zero issues with faces and weapons not loading. I'm sure they had to restrict things a little more on the PS3 to get it on the system because the PS4 version is pretty gorgeous and I've had zero framerate problems. I've played for about 60 hours.

I am astonished at how HUGE the Hinterlands are in DA: Inquisition. This one area is like the entire map of Origins!
I've gotten way too sidetracked doing all sorts of quests here instead of moving the story forward.
I saw my first dragon, and promptly turned around so I didn't get my ass handed to me. Damn thing is huge and very imposing. Awesome.

I couldn't beat that dragon until about level 12 or so, but yeah I high tailed it out of there the first time I saw it as well lol.

I'm already totally addicted to Inquisition. It's just so fun to play. I've played about 10 hours already, which is a lot for me in a weeks time. This is the perfect game for a gardener heading into Winter "Can't play in my garden" Depression. I make light of it, but I seriously do get a form of seasonal affective disorder. Distractions are incredibly important. A game like this, with so much to do, is perfect.
I'm totally addicted to it as well. I usually never stay up past 11-12 at night and I've been consistently staying up till 2-3 not realizing it because I'm having so much fun. I sure do feel tired the next day though haha. I've played for 40 hours already.
Yowza! In a weeks time?! Damn, dude, go to bed. haha. I understand, though. I'd be up late, too, if I didn't have to get up at 5:15. Stupid work getting in the way of quality gaming time.

Yeah I don't have to go to work until noon every day haha. I don't get off work until 8 PM though.

Rachel Getting Married made me cry... so depressing. Trying to think of others and drawing a blank, but I know there's more.

Is there a safe chest to store shit instead of carrying it around?

I found a lot of gear that's higher lever than me and I'm sick of lugging it around until I can use it.

To Yoda, unfortunately there's no chest for or storage place for items.  It's one of those massive oversights that seems odd and will probably come with a patch.  I can't believe they missed something like that. 

I was wondering the same thing. This is a HUGE oversight. I'd like to dump all this crap somewhere. Hopefully it will be added in DLC. For FREE.

This is really my only complaint so far too (other than maybe the jumping lol). I've played for almost 40 hours and have a few things I would love to dump, but my inventory never gets completely full so it isn't game breaking by any means. I do a good job of selling things off I don't need.

I've played DA:I for about 32 hours so far and I'm loving it. So much to do and explore that I have barely even touched the main story at all. I've completed almost everything to do in the Hinterlands, Fallow Mire, Forbidden Oasis (except the last door for the shards because I need more), and the Storm Coast. I'm out of stuff to do now so I guess I'll start doing the story. This is definitely my favorite of the series. Good combination of the first two games with a little bit of Elder Scrolls feel.

Long time no see everyone! Took a little break, but I'm back in full swing again. Took me awhile to find this because things were changed since I was last on here haha. Finally finished up Tales of Xillia 2 after 2 1/2 months of playing it off an on for 58 hours. Overall I enjoyed it, but I think the original is a little bit better. They completely used the same environments and towns with only a small segment (Drellin) being new. I hated the debt system, but I put up with it because I liked the characters and story. I got the bad, good, and neutral ending. I think the neutral ending was probably my favorite, but the good one was solid too. The bad one was... well just terrible lol. On to Dragon Age starting tomorrow! Can't wait!

New Trailer

Also, Nomura has officially stepped down as director and Tabata is taking over.

It definitely looks more like a real game in this trailer.  There's less of the crazy flying around stuff we say before...which is probably for the best.  It looked cool but realistically I never really understood how you were supposed to control it.  This looks like an action RPG.  Less revolutionary, sure, but also easier to see how it will actually play.

I find it funny that the combat in this looks like Dragon Age 2, a game people queefed out about endlessly, but yet for FF to depart from strategic combat it's hailed as streamlining and fun. In Dragon Age people decree that it's dumbing down and appealing to a COD mindset.

Not saying you said this, specifically, just quoting for the trailer.

Compared to Dragon Age Origins, I did feel like Dragon Age 2 was dumbed down a little... BUT it was still fun to me. We'll see what they do with FFXV, but I'm digging the more action oriented approach personally.

Beat Infamous First Light last night. Currently debating on whether or not I want to platinum it. I mean I do want the platinum as that woul be my 49th platinum meaning when I platinum Arno Surge, that will be my 50th. But then I'll have to master the arenas, and I just don't know if I care enough for that. I probably should just try and get some more power upgrades and see if they help make the arenas any easier. >.>

Mastering the arena's in First Light was the best part! I had a blast doing it. It seems daunting at first, but it really isn't once you get the hang of things.

Been playing some Tales of Xillia 2. Not much gaming time with school starting back up. Only been able to play 4 hours in the past week or so. It's about the same as the first, although I miss the orb leveling system. Going back to traditional leveling is kind of boring. I also don't really like that Ludger barely speaks. No personality at all. I know they are trying to make you decide the choices for him with the new system, but it kind of zaps the character development that Tales is good at. Otherwise though, still fun. Story hasn't done a whole lot yet.

Finished up Uncharted Golden Abyss. It ended up not being as bad as my initial impressions once they abandoned the awful gimmicks halfway through and it started feeling more like a real Uncharted game. It also helped that Sully joined. Overall, it was an ok game, but nothing special like the first three. I'm glad I got it on sale for 18 bucks rather than paying full price for it. Not worth it.

I also bought inFamous First Light and finished it today. Really enjoyed it. I think it has more than enough game time to justify the 15 bucks. The battle arena has been tons of fun for me. I've spent hours just unlocking trophies. Only have like 7 more to go for another platinum. If you liked Second Son, definitely buy it! I actually think the combat is even more satisfying in this than it was in the last game. The city is only half Second Son, but you don't really notice. Story nicely fills in a prequel story leading up to the beginning of Second Son too.

Edit: I'm not sure why this double posted when I only clicked post once. Sorry guys.

I've managed to get every multi-player trophy for The Last of Us Remastered except finishing the Hunter and Firefly journeys. That probably won't happen for a long time if ever because that's a ton of matches and I want to move on to other games, more specifically Tales of Xilia 2 which has been sitting on my shelf all week. I did play a bunch of Uncharted: Golden Abyss this weekend after getting it for 20 bucks at Best Buy a couple of weeks ago. I loved the other three games, but this one is seriously testing me. I hate all the gimmicky controls they have added and the shooting and moving is not nearly as smooth as the others. Obviously there's restraints because of the hardware, but they did not do a good job transitioning from console to handheld like they did with the God of War series. I'm pretty disappointed. At chapter 14 so far. Even the crap like taking pictures and solving puzzles is just not fun. I'll finish this quickly and never touch it again.
