    Maybe bioware needed money for their MMO project. That could have been a reason for the rush. (I can't believe that a game which uses the same maps over and over again like we're blind and maps that could be renamed 'railroads' wasn't rushed)

    Damnit. You guys make me want to cancel my order.

    I liked FF13 though, which was also a step back for it's genre. I guess I'm not too critical once I get into things. I hope it's the same here.

    Cancel it. Not worth it.
    FF13 was a good game. It wasn't 'FFish' enough but it was still a good game.
    This is a bad game packaged into the background of a good game. It's not 'terrible' but i wouldn't pay over 20 dollars for it while the first one felt cheap for its content.

    Only a couple hours into it, it's okay so far. I like that the combat pacing is a bit quicker/more visceral but other than that the mechanics bother me.

    Step back indeed.

    That sucks.. I'm going to try to cancel. If I can't, oh well.

    I used to chat often with one of the Bioware writers actually. He had left, and after that, it seemed like Mass Effect 2 had suffered a bit. I thought it was a fluke, but there must have been more people who had left, if some of this streamlining is trickling down to Dragon Age as well (which was never really like their old games either, but cool enough). It makes wonder about that Star Wars game in the works too. I hate MMOs, but the only reason I'd play that one is because of what Bioware might bring to the table, storywise. It's sounding like that could suffer too (that is, unless all of the good writers left were actually moved there).

    Umm, just a thought.

    It's not a terrible game or anything btw. It's just that I wouldn't buy it given that I have a student's budget.
    But yeah compared to DA:O they just are in different leagues

    yet another comment: You bribe somebody, (and it didn't seem like there was an alternative way out) and they don't even tell you how much you're going to pay before accepting. They're not even trying to make it sound like you're making an actual choice and not following a rail.

    edit: and then you're supposed to go check some cargo , you get 'through' the door and end up .. back in the street. Apparently you 'checked and the cargo was indeed inside'.
    I'm sure it isn't because they didn't want to model a room or two.

    edit2: actually, I think it may be a bug...

    Before leaving for the expedition to the deep roads, you of course meet all the team.. in the middle of a busy street, because that's obviously where dwaves would discuss their business projects.

    Alright, you're slowly putting me off the game.

    Hows the team combo stuff? Like disorientate, brittle, stagger etc.
