I've still got some of the DA:O DLC to go, Awakening and Witch Hunt so I'm not completely finished. I doubt I'll play DA2 however, I'm not a huge fan of the combat system in these kinds of games, it feels too disconnected to me as I like to actually control what my character is doing instead of clicking on an enemy and letting RNG decide the outcomes. With that said though, I may still play Inquisition if there is a good enough deal on a sale, don't know yet, heard some mixed reviews for it.
43.9 gig for a demo
how big is the main game going to be? It might be time for ME:A2 by the time I finish downloading and installing it.
Dragon Age had some great DLC. I really liked the one where you played as Darkspawn.
Dragon Age 2 is a slightly different combat system. It's similar if you are playing the full tactical experience, but you can also play it as far more of a hack'n'slash style. I usually go for the more hack'n'slash style, unless something happens that needs my urgent attention. DA2 did a much better job with the non-main characters. I also thought that the romance subplots were amongst the best Bioware subplots of any game of theirs I've played. Fenris' romance especially I adored.
I really like Inquisition. I don't really get people's problems with the way Dragon Age progressed. I really enjoyed it. I spent something like 200 hours over both my playthroughs. Only thing I'd say, if you do get, don't spend too much time trying to do all the misc stuff in the first area you go to. You can come back to it and there is a **** tonne of stuff to do.
I'm fairly sure the ME:A demo is actually the full game essentially. It's just going to take a day 1 patch (and paying them) or something to make it the full game. I have Madden 17 which is also EA, and this is how the demo worked. I have fairly speedy internet, but it still took quite a while to download. Been quicker if when my internet dropped I had just reset the router rather than waiting a few hours then deciding to do it.
Had a look on the gamefaqs message boards and the initial opinions on ME:A aren't great. And some early reviews/previews for the game aren't overly glowing. I've enjoyed what I got to play of the demo between SP and MP, but I'd probably still like this game if it kicked me in the nuts. I will not pretend to be anything close to unbias toward Mass Effect. Multiplayer is much faster base I'd say. A lot of criticism is heading toward the story being rather dull early on. A lot is going toward the comically weak character creation suite. The facial animations are supposed to be pretty poor. And there have been some criticisms of the laggyness in multiplayer (though I didn't notice any on Xbone - may just be a PS4/PC issue or might just have been one person's experience that's got spread... or maybe I'm lucky). Some people are already suggesting they think this will be a critical flop. Curious to see how it plays out.
Pet peeve of mine that seems to be becoming more common. If some facet of the game involves improving some items via random unlocks - like buying a chest that has 5 random items etc - it seems to be in vogue to have them all "face down" and make the player turn them over. I find this annoying. I want to see what 5 crappy things I got as fast as possible then get back to it. I dislike having to hit A on each one. Yes, it's minor but it's rather irksome.
