Dragon Age: Origins

Postby RobertMc123 » 08 Nov 2009, 14:47

So who got this game?

I have the PC version.
I currently am playing it as a human noble and am defending Redcliffe from an undead horde. That's me at the 7 hour mark. I have had great fun with this game so far, died numerous times and then went back in trying different tactics and its been a blast.
This is a game that demands numerous play throughs and I cannot wait.
Anyone else having as much fun as me?

I'm definitely enjoying it (PC version). I'm somewhere at the 10 hour mark, I think. Well past Redcliffe.

I'll just mention here and now, despite playing a lot of video games, I completely suck at them so I will no doubt be behind everyone.

I have it all installed, made my character, got through the ritual and stopped there. I had a few problems with XP so I'm buying Windows 7 and 4GB of RAM. They're coming Friday then I'll be playing again.

So far I have to say I'm more impressed than I thought I'd be.

Started with a Human Warrior with a Sword and Shield build, the first Ogre battle made me realize that I had to use the whole pausing thing a lot more.

On my 4th playthrough.
Fantastic game.
I'm still trying to figure out why someone didn't tell me how awesome Muse is.

Uptight bitch. :wink:

My favorite character, thus far, is Shale, the downloadable golem. Both for amusing dialog and for saving my party's ass on multiple occasions.

I started playing it again tonight. Wow. I made it to Ostagar with my Elf mage. I'm a little afraid to spend points in case there's something later on that I need but I have a few basic attack spells and a basic heal to tide me over.

I also found the sound track in the bonus disc I got. Inon Zur is an amazing composer.

I'm 40 hours in, and midway through the Dwarf city. I'm playing a Female Dwarf Commoner Rogue/Duelist. Trying to decide which other specialization to get.

About 25 hours in now in Denerim looking for the Urn, Champion/Templar Human Noble Warrior oh and I just finished Morrigan's Quest surprisingly a lot easier than I expected.

The Broodmother fight made me shiver in fear before vomiting...

This is a really well made game, I've gotta say. I haven't had the free time to really get into it, but my elf mage is having fun stealing energy from dead bodies.

I find it strange that I'm playing her as a nice character, but picking the eeevil spells.

My elf mage just learned Grease and Fireball. Oh and some mana regen spell. I don't think my allies love me anymore.

I got it (PC... now that I for the first time in 5 years have a good computer I'm gonna damn well use it!). I find the game good, but sadly my complaint about the ammount of blood that I talked about earlier in the trailer thread, remains. Luckely the game allowes you to shut off the presistant gore, which is good. gets a bit annoying when in every cutscene your characters looks like they just got out of an explosion at a bloodbank.

That aside I'm not sure if I can complain about anything... oh, the random encounter are damn hard >< (mind you I'm not all that far in yet)

Anyway, Good game almost all around. and as I'm not gonna play MW2; I'm gonna play this... for some time

I'm playing Sereda, a (Noble) Dwarf Female Warrior. I'm at 11 hours so far, and am searching for the Urn of Sacred Ashes. God I'm a badass...
Anyway, I'm managing to do it with Alistair, Zevran, and Leliana at the same time. The only one who's caught on is Wynne. And she ain't sayin' anything.

Furthermore, the dog (whom I named Boulder) is so cute! And deadly! But mostly cute! Did anyone else get to the bit when the dog fetches a kid?

Now, that's dedication.

And, no, I haven't had an occurrence where the dog (I named him Hardcore), fetches a child. What did you do to get that?

Griever is the name of Ultimacia's GF in FFVIII. The avatar found on Squall's ring and necklace.

It is also lame.
