Anyone played them? I finished the first one as a Sword and Board warrior. Enjoyed that a lot.
Playing the second one now as a Mage. It is fun, but a very different game. The scale is a more personal level. Everything revolves around the main character, rather than the group of main characters.

I like how the different weapon types all play noticeably different. SHield and one handed weapon is super tough, greatsword hits more than one enemy at a swing, dual weapons is really fast and powerful vs. a single target, archery is just awesome, and mages can do a lot of weak but accurate hits quickly at range.

Aggh, DA2 kill me now. Story was lame, combat was epic. Most of the game was just a grind through kirkwall for me.

Gotta love a computer game that inspires something like This Smile

I'm playing the second one right now. Since I'm old and grumpy I have my reservations, but overall it's a nice piece of entertainment.

Edit: Regarding the link, he did post the how-to update. Good stuff.

I just got finished with the journey into the deep roads so moving along. I can't help think that a Dragon Age setting could be fun for a skirmish game. Only three classes of heroes (Maybe some exceptions like Shale or having a Mabari), but nothing wrong with that. Each player would have maybe just one hero to start and it would be a very heavy story based game. Maybe even a Coop campaign!

Skills like Taunt would be an interesting skill to use. All enemies within charge range must charge the character, and any in the melee must attack him/her as well, moving to base contact if needed.

Very cinematic game with larger than life heroes starting with 3 wounds each and powerful monsters but weak fodder enemies mixed in.

Never played Dragon Age... but think it looks cool.. is it online like WoW? Or is it similar to Diablo? I love Diablo Smile

They're purely singleplayer games.. nothing online about them beyond the ability to (buy and) download additional content. I can't say they share all that many similarities with Diablo, beyond "pseudo-medieval fantasy" and the fact that you occasionally kill dudes and take their stuff. There's a lot more social interaction in the Dragon Age games, and you've got companions that'll react to your moral decisions.

Similar to the other Bioware games like Knights of the Old Republic or Mass Effect, but the dragon age series uses a combat system closer to Baldurs Gate or Planescape: Torment (which is an awesome game, but very dark)

Finished the DEEP ROAD segment, and actually wound up heading back for something.

All-in-all, really enjoying it, but geez: I guess I am spoiled by WoW, because this game is loading screen hell! I honestly wonder, when they say, "Over 60 hours of gameplay," if that includes loading screens or not.
