Can you jump right in with level 1 guy or do you need to build up first WOW style?

The Game has nice progression with the starting zone, but yes if you go to an area where mobs out-level you then you will get demolished.


Also, if you hear something screeching look up

So what are the plus/minus with each class from what you guys have played so far?



Really depends on what you want to do.  I've spec my Soldier to be basically a distance fighter.  So while I have some good close combat weapons" A revolber with two shots anda full auto shotgun I do much better with my two combat rifles from range.

this game is much better co op.  Last night Hark, Dreamshadow, Jake Smiley &  myself tore thru the the game at a good pace,  Jake started out at lvl 7 and was lvl 18 when we logged,  That put us all within 1 level of each other

DC is okay depending on where you go.  Crime happens in every major city , so DC isn't immune.   Georgetown is nice and the Government area is filled with great Muesum and the DCZoo is the best in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Unless you are local I suggest never EVER EVER EVER EVER drive in DC.  The streets are confusing as hell

Driving mechanic could be better.  The control scheme for consoles they used sucks all kind of balls.  Using the left stick forward/backwards and right stick for left/right just doesn't makes sense

Oh, and CeeKay, in a sense, they had Scarecrow in Dark Knight, too.

but he had about as much effect on the story as Zsasz did in Begins.

Don't think we'll ever see Zsasz as a main villian.  Joker is a manical psychopath, but Zsasz is on a whole different level when it come to what he does.   Bane should be next

Actually, started a new campaign in Empire: Total War as the English.  So far:

I crushed the young United States that popped up in New York.  Don't need some rebels  rabble rousing my colonies.

Sweden crushed Norway which prompted the United Provinces and myself to declare war on them.   

France is in a brutal war with Austria & Prussia

Barbary Pirates has asked for peace with me.  Guess they didn't like my five ship armada crushing their ships everytime they decided to raid. 

Lastly, I'm fighting the Huron and Irquios nations in the New World

Still haven't seen the AI do  amphibious assault yet

Loved the movie and wouldn't mind seeing a part 2.  I always wondered if  a ground war would have broken out with the now stranded Aliens trapped on earth.  Was that the only Alien Fleet?   So much potential

I'm cool with NXE. But geez, let me set it to default to "My XBOX".


if i'm playing an arcade game/demo/movie/video, whatever, don't auto-launch the game i put in the disc.  auto launch game should only be when you aren't already doing something else.  or at least prompt me or something. 

You can turn off auto launching of games.

Looks like I'll be getting the Steam version.  I had the Amazon CE pre-ordered but even with same day shipping my ETA was 11/6.  So, I'm canceled.

Decided to cancel my subscription this evening.  The more I played the more the game felt like a grind.  I'm thinking MMO's are no longer a genre for me...or maybe it's the subject matter.  Loved Warhammer, but the unbalanced in PvP killed the game for me.  I just couldn't connect with Aion.  Kato, thanks for the gear.

Part 1 (including my interview with the founders of Bioware) is up!  I'll take questions and answer what I can.

(Also, FYI - I had the flu pretty bad so hopefully it doesn't sound too bad)

I read the first paragraph in the spoiler and stopped ....  eek


Anyway, does the 360 support the 3/4 tactical view..

KD posted some pretty positive stuff in the PC section about some preview time he's put into the game.  For those who are thinking the marketing is telling the story of what kind of game this will be, the answer seems to be it's totally misleading.  If there is one thing almost everyone agrees with it's that the marketing is horrible for DA.

One important thing that I've picked up from various previews is that it sounds like the tactical 3/4 view interface isn't available on the 360, just the PC. That makes this a definite PC purchase for me, not a 360 one.

I'm gonna confirm that either way today. 

This is need to know.  I'll cancel my 360 pre-order and get the PC version

Ravens lost a close one to the Pats.  I'm a little miffed at the Official play-calling, One questionable roughing the passer called on Suggs & Flagging Harbaugh, but the game was good one nonetheless.  Brady looked like his old self.

Don't look now the Raven's have a Offense.   Next up the Patriots.  If we can win in Foxboro then the league needs to be very afraid

The Steelers are already down 2 games to the Ravens and it's only Week 3. Things aren't looking good. About the only positive aspect is that the two teams don't play until late in the season, which gives the Steelers time to get Polamalu back, and figure out what the hell is going on.
Polumalu probably would have saved the game for the Steelers Sunday.  What's going on with Farrior?
