I gave up on that game. Just didn't like it, and the bloody gas mask thing got on my nerve.

Nice graphics but I don't see me finishing it. Did the same with STALKER - played it a little and put it away forever.

Same on Stalker. Good thing I got it on sale for $5 on STEAM.



I just finished the DEMO of DA2. TBH, Im not sure what to think about it.
It seems more action oriented now.

And, Isabella, the duelist from the tavern in DAO, well ...
I couldnt decide if she was supposed to be a talented rouge or a PornStar.

I dunno, maybe just me but it didnt impress me much from the Demo.
But, there was a lot of stuff locked too so, perhaps the full game would be a bit better.
A bit hard to tell from the DEMO.

And the one other character from the 1st game was back, although she casme out OK in the new game.

I have not done a single quest yet- I was just walking around and picking up all the goodies I could find- Walking on power lines etc to get on top of buildings what ever- hack up a few bots here or there pick up some cats etc.



It is over the top crazy fun.. Every 1 should play postal2 least 1x- its a riot. Postal dude is my hero..





::EDIT I did a few more tweaks- upped af from 4x to 8x- so it looks even better now- I set max frame rate for it to try and hold it to 40fps- It runs at near or over 100fps or so if not recording- If I turn on fraps recording it drops to 25fps which is what I have fraps set to record at [I never tell fraps to lock the fps]- but its smooth as silk playing- If running af at 6 or 4x its like 70 or more fps while recording- I do not really care about all of that as long as it runs smooth while recording- 25fps is plenty fine to see all tracers etc flying around- So 8x af it is.. Fun Stuff..

Time to play. See ya..
Postal 2 is the only game in existence where I can truly go ALL-OUT-PSYCHO!!! AND I LOVE IT xDDD

For now, I'm gonna fire up The Saboteur again

i agree with all these points.

stalker didn't grab me - i tried, but decided wasn't worth my time.

also just finished da2 demo - i wasn't particularly overwhelmed by the experience.

the graphics were good, and the engine solid. wasn't sure about the ui though, very minimal in places and too much in others, such as the upgrade abilities screen. i suppose you would quickly get used to it though after an hour or two.

i see what you mean about isabella - all the female characters seem to have either incredible genes, or serious enhancement surgery - although thinking about it, it's probably all done by magic.

it was only a small demo, and not much data to go on, but so far the characters seemed flat, including the voice-acting - there was none of the magic sparkle between alistair and morrigan, for instance. hopefully the full game will be different.

the character who comes back sure makes an impressive appearance, and looks good for her age.

oh - anyone else notice tiny little pauses during dialogue? maybe i need a new pc...

Yes, frequent pausing and hitching between diaglogs here as well.

I have my Old Vertex SSD I usually keep 2 games on, (the current 2 I play the most) but left the DA2 demo on my main game drive.

Perhaps the SSD would help this? It would be worth a try.

I thought It may have just been me TBH, because my main game drive is a Spinner & is over half full. And the DEMO was at the end of that drive.

I agree with all your points as well Mickey.
There just seems to be something ... missing.

But I did like the other character


I cant help but think, what made DA so great IMO was the story and dialog. Hopefully those elements are actually in DA2, and we just do not really get experience them in the Demo.

i installed the demo on my ssd - it's only 2 gigs.

maybe my pauses would have been worse had it been on my spinner?

let's hope it's just the demo - i have a feeling i'll get the game eventually...for content tourism if nothing else.

I will still try DA2, doesn't hurt to have a quick look, though disappointment seems almost a certainty at this point.
