XBL Gamertag: your mother...
PSN Name: artistadam
Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!

i rented this game yesterday and i was wondering if anyone here has played it... i found the first couple of hours slow and boring but, the action and story is starting to pick up now... i've got two women in my squad now, along with alistar... and i guess both of them are wooable? i don't think morrigan is too thrilled to have another female in the group but, morrigan is a bit of a bitch anyways... i removed my dog from my party but, i have no clue how to get him back in case i decide to kick one of the others out...

if i can fast-travel to each and every destination, i might have this game beat in like another day... i didn't realize i could do that... i bypassed a long journey i assume... i can't remember the town but, it was the one morrigan wanted me to go to immediately after she joined the party... so, now they all want me to go to redcliff, or something... i guess i need to physically journey there if i want to earn more experience...

the fighting is OK, the graphics are not very good at all, and the framerate on the PS3 is a bit slow... i have no clue what skills i am unlocking, or if they are useful because so far, all i've done is the basic attack... and that seems to be working... i am still confused about the leveling... the skills i have unlocked, haven't been useful at all...

everywhere i go, someone wants me to help them... i am trying to play this game as a good samaritian but, if i have to keep helping people, i am going to start to please morrigan with my devilish ways...


overall, it's a decent game... i guess i was expecting more considering how it won a bunch of awards last year... but, the RPG aspect really hasn't kicked in yet... it just feels like a hack-n-slash game right now because, leveling up isn't unlocking anything good, it's just allowing me to make my soldier stronger and faster in battle...

my teammates are very helpful in battle though, which is a nice change of pace from other games that claim this... the dialog branches are kind of fun to navigate, although, it's pretty easy to get under morrigan's skin... i guess i have to be more careful if i ever want to see more of her skin...

anyways, i got this game until sunday so, i'll keep advancing the story to see if it will suck me in... it hasn't yet...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.


You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Okay, either you pissed Alistair off really bad at the beginning of the game, or there's some kind of glitch. Awakening was not worth full price for me, but 70% off is worth it, and Origins is worth full-price as far as I'm concerned, so buy them both. You will make multiple playthroughs of Origins, I've done every origin but the Dwarf Noble, and have run them all through Awakening. You will get your money's worth out of this game and you'll be surprised when you realize how addicted you are. It should keep you busy until New Vegas comes out.

As for how far off the end is, after you finish up with the Dwarves (which I would've done first), you'll do a group of quests in, whatever the main human city is called, I forget, then you'll do a quest in Redcliffe, then you'll head back to the main city for the final quests, which are epic and badass. When you get to the final quests, there's only going to be one chance to sell your loot, so take whatever gear you want to keep with you, even if that means stripping down your crew members. Whatever you have in your inventory at the end of the game goes with you when you import your character into Awakening.

Oh, and make sure you really look around when you hit the Deep Roads, there's a full suit of armor down there, and it's badass, so uncover the entire map, even if it means epic backtracking. It's worth it.
