But is the ending.IE the last 15% of the game good or do we get another crappy ending? I loved the first two games, the creepy underground area of the first one more so, but both endings were disappointing, as has been well noted. Clear Sky after the hospital was pretty useless. I wish they would stop doing that. They do so much a great deal better than any body else.

So we aren't getting a Shale fix any time soon? Also part of the same problem where it decides after a while to stop recognozing wardens keep and gives you the quest again. The silence from EA/Bioware is deafening.

Cool. I guess water is easier to do than fire. The fire looks kinda lame to me. Not that I care, just saying. Can't wait for this as SH3 cannot run on Vista 64 due to the old copy protection.
564  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age Game Issues Thread on: November 28, 2009, 02:27:59 PM
I got the Shale bug yesterday icon_frown Appparently no fix is available except going back to an earlier save and I just use quick save. Seems like wardens keep has reset as well. I enjoy Shale as a tank-and his quips- so I hope I don't miss too much not being able to talk to him.

Really wish I had a beefier PC as I ended up dialing graphics to low and textures to medium to make this the most playable it could be. The game just flat out doesn't look that great on those settings.



That's okay it doesn't look that great maxed out either. Tongue
Not that I'm not enjoying the game-I am. It just lloks kind of vanilla and washed out to me. And I played Risen right before it which I thought looked fantastic. Different type of game so not fair to compare-it's just the last one I played.

A question about Sten
Spoiler for Hiden:
Do you have to intimidate the reverend mother to get him freed? I tried every other dialog trick I could think of and kept going back to Sten to see if he would give me any info to work with. I did all the side quests and cleared the road in the town hoping the reverend mother would look more faverably on me. Nope. So I held my nose and demanded the key. I got it but felt bad doing it.
Spoiler for Hiden:
 I got a (Persuade)(Lie) option where I told the Reverand Mother that I was going to take him into custody to return in to Quanari.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm pretty sure I got him without lying or intimidating as I've yet to intimidate a "good guy". Damned if I can remember the details, it's been about 20 hours of playtime since then.

I did it simply enough (assuming I remembered right):

Spoiler for Hiden:
I basically said that as a Grey Warder (I told her I was one even though there were people in town looking for Warders because we were 'evil') I requested his assistance in the battles ahead. She handed him right over.
That didn't work at all for me.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I told her right off I was Grey warden and she said she couldn't take a chance on helping me since Grey Wardens were on the wanted list.

Thanks for the replies. Sounds at least like there was nothing obvious was missed. Oh well, what's done is done. I'm sure it's not the last time I will say that in this game.

And most people on this board have way more time to play than I do. It allways cracks me up when I'm still in the opening stages and start reading "Finished!" posts. I'm such a plodder.

I respectfully disagree with the main points of that Eurogamer review. I think DA has a great deal of soul and heart and the game sucked me in pretty fast. Can't say if normal is too hard yet. I have had to repeat some fights, not many but it's early yet. I haven't tried easy. I will say the game is not for people who love exploring in these games as their favorite thing. It's laid out not completely but mostly pretty linear. But I can't see how you can say this game has no soul.

Where do you guys see the 5.1 sound option? Yes I have looked under audio. I don't see it anywhere.
It's not in-game (this was my mistake, too).  You have to go to your Windows sound setup and configure the speakers from there.

Thank you! can't wait to get home and do this tonight. Why the heck isn't the option in game? I don't think it was in game in Risen either.

If this works with Vista 64 that would be way cool. This is one of the the very few games ever that I got completely stuck in and had to give up. Can't even begin to remember where and why that was. Then over the years I tossed my copy. Duh! Since then I've found many cites where people call it one of the best games ever. I would like to get a chance to try again.
573  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: October 27, 2009, 08:25:21 PM
I asked this on QT3 and got ignored. Wardens Keep is to be downloaded the day the game is released. Anybody wondering if the servers are going to get clogged up? Or is the DLC already on the disk and we just have to unlock it? I want to fire up this puppy as soon as I get it wioth everything in place. I don't really want to spend 2-3 hrs trying to hook up to a server.
574  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age: Where to buy? on: October 23, 2009, 09:03:48 PM
I wonder if steam will let people preload this. I already have a CE preorder at gamestop so it doesn't matter to me but I wonder how long it will take to pull this down from steam. I purchased Risen that way and they started the download about 6-7 hrs late with no explination. I would worry about servers getting flooded as well because DA is sure to be a lot more popular than Risen. Today Steam started preloads for Borderlands so maybe they will.
575  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: October 21, 2009, 03:39:08 PM
I have heard on QT3 that the Eurogamer review has some spoilers in it. Just a friendly warning.

So, anyone got a short synopsis of what the point is in this game?  Are we eventually supposed to save the land from some Dragon or evil whoever?  Or is it more just a character-building rpg where the crux is to roam around and adventure here and there and build a badass character? 

Just hoping it is not another World of Warcraft type of thing.  Oh, and I did not play through Baldur's Gate. Got bored about an hour in.

The videos I watched had some nice character interaction with npc's, but that is about all I could tell from them.

There is a Dark swarm overtaking the land and you join up with the grey wardens and try to defeat it. I think that is pretty much all that is known so far. Which is great because I don't want to know spoilers anyway. Did you just play BG1 or was it BG2 that bored you. BG1 was kinda vanilla but Bioware rpg's are pretty similar in play and if you didn't care for those you probably wouldn't be crazy about Dragon Age either.
577  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Risen from Pirhana Bytes on: October 13, 2009, 05:54:58 PM
Cool. I have to stop reading stuff. Still in Chapter one. I did all of the swamp qusts without reading any tips. I just got stuck on a couple small things in Harbor town and in trying to get unstuck discovered I had more to do with Patty. Then I got worried I had missed something.
Really enjoying the game. it's exciting trying to explore in a driving thunderstorm when sudden death may lurk around any corner. I'm enjoying all the quests as well. Can't believe some people have finished the game already.
578  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Risen from Pirhana Bytes on: October 13, 2009, 05:23:55 PM
A quest question.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I have gotten Patty outside harbor town and I know there is a further quest line with her but I haven't triggered been able to trigger it yet. Is it chapter dependent? I heard you get it from the Don's area. Is it from Finnegan? I taalked to him but nothing triggered.
579  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Risen from Pirhana Bytes on: October 07, 2009, 04:25:28 PM
Risen is 4th on the Steam best sellers list and first on Direct to Drive. I really hope it does great because I want PB to keep making games.

I ran into a graphic glitch last night where that guy had no head.  it was bizarre, but when I alt tabbed to get FRAPS up and running it came back.
[/quote]

I had this glitch on a character in Harbor town. Just eyeballs and teeth. I was wondering for a second if he was a specter or something but figured it was a glitch pretty fast. It returned to normal on my next reload.

This game is kicking my ass in the begining. The quests are anything but easy and I'm to weak and unskilled to use brute force. Good old PB. This is just the way I like it. I will be glad to get the hell out of Harbor town though.
581  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dragon Age is looking good! on: October 03, 2009, 03:19:16 PM
Knightshade those are very promising words. Even if I wind up not thinking it's the best RPG ever It still sounds like a way better than average game. It is interesting that people who have just seen the trailors and promo stuff are doubtful but anyone who has gotten to play it for a decent amout of time come away quite impressed.
582  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Silent Hunter 3 on: October 02, 2009, 09:30:11 PM
Booner fwiw I heard SH4 took a large astep back in the series. They managed to lose a ton of atmosphere and dumbed some stuff down. Kronovan, I played the GWX full package on a core 2 duo 3gig and a 800gt and 2 gig ram and it ran smooth. Not that demanding in terms of todays hardware.
583  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Silent Hunter 3 on: October 02, 2009, 06:55:10 PM
This is a great game. Do yourself a favor and get the GWX mod package as well as sub commander. Really enhances the fun. I'm stuck because I have the origonal SH3 with Starforce and it plain will not work with Vista64. So I am waiting paitently for SHV in March.

A couple of things: The 360 port was done by an outside company and they did a pretty poor job that the PB crew is very unhappy about. The Eurogamer review has been dissected pretty well on QT3 and has so many proven inaccuracies that it seems pretty well useless.

586  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Risen from Pirhana Bytes on: September 26, 2009, 10:48:31 PM
Yup, they do have stores here in Illinois. I orderd from steam. 5 bucks off and no tax, plus I should get it on day one, unless a million people are doing the same thing. Tongue
587  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Risen from Pirhana Bytes on: September 26, 2009, 03:38:38 PM
Yes Gamestop preorder for 39.99 is a sale price. Of course then you don't get to play it on release day because it only ships on the second. I think for ten bucks off I can wait a few days to play it. The reviews make it sound just like Gothic 1 and 2, and none of them have mentioned bugs. I am so all over this.

So gamestop charges tax for internet orders now? icon_cry Between that and any shipping increase over the minimum means I'm not saving much even with the sale. I think I will go B&M and be washing up on that island Friday night.

DX10 vs DX11 comparisons.  maybe it's too early in the morning, but the only difference I can see is the DX11 ones look a bit brighter.
I could barely see any difference in 9 vs 10 except for some of the large explosions, and I can't see a difference here at all. Certainly no need to get a new card.
589  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 'Call of Pripyat' on: September 23, 2009, 04:42:01 PM
Maybe they are redoing the ending icon_confused. Naw, because the Russian version seems to be not delayed. I would be bummed about this but I have Risen and Dragon Age coming out so I am game set for a while.

Looks like they really improved the graphics, wasn't expecting that.

that they seem to be really good at.  Clear Sky was much better graphicswise than the first game, and they bring it up a notch again this time.

of course the real question is, while making it prettier, did they do a better job optimizing it this time....

(oh, and make the ending level(s) not suck.  they have yet to stick the landing on this IMO)
I guess I need to pick up a video card faster than my 8800gt to get good rates in Clear Skies. It seems to chug something fierce. I can only fear what this new one will do.
 

What rez are you trying to play at? I played CS on my 8800gt cranked with no issues. Can't remember for sure what I played at but I think it was 1880x1050. If not it was 1280. I hope they haven't boosted it to much. Optimisers these guys are not.

ding!  GOLDEN!  watching that playthrough got me a bit more excited.

You beat me to it! October 2nd! Although I never had any of the bugs that plagued the first three games it will be interesting to see if their supposed months of squashing will produce a cleaner release. Kudos to them for not holding up the pc release for the 360. I kinda wish Bioware had done that but if they had I would have been finished with DA and now I still have it to look forward to.

This trailer shows whats so great about these games. Best atmosphere of any game ever, imho. I guess there has been a ton of bugs. Although I played Clear Sky fully patched late after it came out, I played the first one through from day one with no problems. They had terrible endings to the first two. If they fix that, this could be up there with the greatest games ever.

Making me feel old here-which I am. MM1 was the first RPG game I ever played and hooked me on computer gaming forever.

How many origin stories are there? Like 7 or 8? So there is 900 hrs in this beast if you play through everybody? That would be pretty cool although I would never do them all. I spent about 120 hrs on Fallout 3 so I can believe this.
