EA does this to all the great studios, they buy them the moment they have a promising game in the works.
Then force them to kick out ever increasing numbers of crappy sequels with ever decreasing quality. They don't understand how to run a game studio, they don't understand the creative process.

EA is paul sr.
and the development studios are paul jr
(if anyone watches that show)

You can't rush the creative process and demand good results at the same time. Some people are just not wired to understand how that works.

New patch out for Dragon Age 2.....

Quote:
Dragon Age II 1.02

AMD and NVIDIA have recently released new graphics-card drivers. Using old drivers may cause Dragon Age II to crash, run poorly, or display graphics incorrectly. Please visit your hardware vendor's website for further information on obtaining new drivers:
NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search
AMD Catalyst

NOTE: Some plot fixes are retroactive, but not all. Players with plot-breaking bugs may need to revert to an earlier save, particularly a save prior to visiting the affected area during the current year in the game.
Patch notes and download here - Choose Language | BioWare Social Network - 21MB

I've not yet tried the patch as I'm not currently playing the game so I can comment on it..... yet. Incidentally I never installed the first patch

I only installed the first patch, and even then i only ran into a bug or two. The first one i ran into was after the fight with orsino, after i defeated him nothing occurred. I loaded a previous save, fought him again, and was able to continue. I refuse to download anything else from bioware unless its new dlc.

Nice one sygnus i think we need a Expansion Pack something like Awakening to keep ourselves busy for a while. Also they should get rid of repeatative places like caves etc and make some new places.

This is the biggest gripe most have about the game. Very lazy piss poor decision with the "one place fits all" game play.

Also the very childish adolescent obsession with sex and "extra" large boobs seemed like they had sex depraved personnel working on the game.

Then we had the "which way are we going story" with its three different acts.

With that said - there were moments that I enjoyed with the game - some of the combat and bosses were fun, and some of the characters were bad ass - loved Varric's fire power.

As for an expansion - any expansion they put out should be less than 30 bucks (more like 19.99) as an apology for the crappy overall game design.

My two cents.

As a huge fan of Dragon Age I can't want to get Inquisition when it launches Nov. 18th of this year. Anyway the system requirements look interesting. Check out the "recommended" specs. And as I like to say, "minimum" just means the game will start :) Source: Dragon Age: Inquisition

Discuss: Bulletstorm
So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
