This is all apart of Warner Bros.  shared universe world trying to capitalize on the Marvel-verse.  So not really crossing streams per se

It is when the upcoming Suicide Squad movie is being called Sinister Six.

Cast announced here


Joker - Jared Leto
Deadshot -  Will Smith
Harley Quinn - Margot Robbie
Rick Flagg - Tom Hardy
Boomerang - Jai Courtney
Enchantress - Cara Delevingne
Lex Luthor - Jesse Eisenberg

Jared Leto has a very huge challenge as Heath Ledger owned that role and I have a very hard time seeing someone else play it.

Spoiler for Hiden:
this entire scene with Flemeth and Morrigan is AWESOME

Morrigan spoiler..

since I'm the last one to post I'll just edit this post.  Completed the game last night on Normal and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride.  Stay through the credits


Spoiler for Hiden:
Solas being the Dread Wolf is awesome and makes a great deal of sense once you think about his conversations you had with him.  I guess the Elves of Old are now starting to wake and points to the where Bioware is taking Dragon Age.

This game has  redeemed some of the disappointment I had with Bioware.   Its shows they can make a good if not a great RPG if they take their time

Looks like the Black Friday sales helped MS outsell all the rival consoles at least in the US.  I'm not surprised as MS has gone out of it's way to move these systems.   

Really good to have healthy competition in the console market

Sera has some of the greatest banter lines and take her to Orleasian ball.  I almost bust a gut when they formally introduced her

I'm almost done with my first play through as a Elf  Mage and according to the save game time I'm over 100 hrs in and I've already set up another world for my second play as a Dwarf 2h Warrior.


Right now, this might be my GOTY.  Bioware has redeemed themselves for me with this game.

Has anyone figured out how to get into Redcliffe Castle?   I remember from the first look it was supposed to be accessible

Isn't it tied to the Mage quest?  So if you went Templars I don't think you go there.

Mage quest gives  you access to the village but not the castle

Best part of the Hinterlands is revisiting with a level 15 party and wiping the floor with everything that was kicking your ass at the start of the game.   icon_twisted

So Blackwall just...left.  No idea why, as I hadn't received any messages that he "greatly disapproved" with anything I'd done.  There was an indicator to go talk with him last time I got back to Skyhold, which I did.  Told him I was glad he was part of the Inquisition, and he agreed.  Went back to the throne room and started equipping my characters with some new gear, and he was simply gone.  Jumped to a new area, and there's a big X through his card and he's not a selectable character anymore.  He wasn't a huge loss party-wise, as I didn't use him very often.  However, it sure would have been nice to have at least some gorram indication that was going to happen.   icon_evil

Thankfully, I picked up someone that more than made up for it...
Spoiler for Hiden:
Morrigan

I swear, I'd pay good money simply to hear Claudia Black read the phone book.   drool

I also had the bug where the dialog wheel stops showing up, which required two PS4 reboots.  I've found that anytime my subtitles disappear, it's a pretty good indicator that the game is going to either crash back to the dashboard or bug out with the dialog wheel pretty soon.

you didn't check the stable where he liked to stay?  there's a clue there

I believe Rebels is canon and there is an episode with the academy for training stormtroopers.

Quote from: Wookiepedia
Within the new regime, the clone troopers—now known as stormtroopers—were placed under the guidance of Imperial officers and governors instead. As the clones' accelerated aging process began causing their skills to deteriorate, they were replaced by non-clone volunteers and conscripts.

Spoiler for Hiden:
The Redcliffe time travel plotline with the Tevinter mages was simply fantastic, so epic it felt like it should be the finale and not just a bump in the beginning of the game!

There are minor nits I have with the interface, and minor things such as not being able to romance Cullen (boooooo), plus I'm getting some stuttering hiccups now and my fans are going wild trying to run the gorgeous graphics, but all in all its worth it.  

You get some justice when you make it to Skyhold

Spoiler for Hiden:
I made him Tranquil which pissed Dorian off

Thanks, Turtle.  I figured as much..   I'll just reboot the game more often


Btw, having to quest for the advanced classes suck and I suggest as soon as the opportunity opens up do the War Table quest to open it up.  Sadly, the advance class I chose appears to be over-powered with people posting vids of soloing dragaon as an Knight Enchanter

Btw, word is that Steam holiday sale starts this Wednesday, so I might be picking up some stuff on the cheap like Wolfenstein: The New Order

Has anyone run into the cut scene conversations pausing?  I've run into the particular issue twice on the XB1 admittedly after some rather long play time.

I can't seem to find where I can see enemy difficulty.  I know they are supposed to be color coded but I don't see where.  I was guessing name, but I haven't noticed it.

Actually if you go to tactical view the shield icon by their name will con them and give respective level.  In case of said demon and the dragon both are lvl  12

also ran into a Rift with a very high level demon at least for the area I'm in

Is that the rift around the horse area?  If so, my party died several times to the point of frustration.  That's when I figured I must have wandered too far, although the horse quest is one of the first two you get.  I guess the feeling this is more like an elder scrolls would be accurate.

That's the one..

Gratch likes a game?  TAKE A SCREENSHOT OF THAT POST! Tongue

 icon_lol

When the game gets into story mode, I really like it.  Bioware has never steered me wrong in that department.

I'm not nearly as fond of the "get a new quest every 3 steps" dynamic that the open world brings though.  It's the main reason why open world games don't generally click with me...jury is still out on this one.

I agree about the amount of quest you can pick up, but what I'm finding is that most of them are quickly completed at least in the Hinterlands.  Btw, ran into my first Dragon and it didn't go well, so I will just avoid that area and come back later and I also ran into a Rift with a very high level demon at least for the area I'm in

Played a bit this morning and I think I should have went PC instead of XB1..  Noticeable stutters at times, but my main issue is controls.  I probably would have preferred PC instead, but I loathe to install Origin.   

Anyway, pretty good so far I missed a conversation with Solas as we were traveling he asked me about living as a Dalish and my conversation tree appeared and it was greyed out and I couldn't select an answer.  Eventually he remarked something like "Well, be silent then"  Has anyone run into this?

Can you guys all do me a favor? 

http://n4g.com/news/1619022/dragon-age-inquisition-review-a-new-era-of-rpg-gaming-trend

Jump on N4G and throw some comments in there?  It helps us expand our audience by pushing our review up the ranks.   It also, obviously, has our review in it.   4000 words, a video review, a side-by-side comparison, and 90 minutes of multiplayer isn't easy to cobble together on a deadline.  smile

Ron I told you I was a bit envious when I saw you playing this on the XB1...  oh gosh,.. I guess I need to pre-order this now
37  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Film] Christopher Nolan - Interstellar on: November 11, 2014, 02:43:42 PM
I've decided on waiting to see this especially after some of the reviews and reading the wiki page.  Just no great desire to see this now
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1/Ps3/Ps4] Dragon Age: Inquisition on: November 11, 2014, 10:19:11 AM
polygon 9.5

joystiq 5 stars

Gamespot 9


Hell, my resistance is failing on this...  I'm trying to wait for player impressions before I decide to buy, but both all reviews sounds like Bioware fixed a lot of the issues that pissed me off in DA2
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/11) on: November 10, 2014, 10:15:21 AM
Warlords of Draenor already installed and waiting for Blizz to turn on the lights.  Deciding if I'll play my Shammy or Pally first.  Will probably get Halo MCC later
