    Has anyone here played the PS3 version?

  • BattagBattag Member Posts: 94

    i picked up the ps3 version because i really cant play single players on my computers...i have an amazing surround sound system so i wanted to take advantage and just to tell you the game is just as good on ps3.  Has a macro system kind of thing like FFXII and its amazing so don't worry IGNS 8.7 is bull

    I had 2 Crashes yesterday as well. not a huge deal, kind of expected for a new game but it is still super fun.

    I started a Dwarf commoner, the first quest to become a graywarden was amazing.

    I'm wondering if I should get the ps3 or PC version. I know once Left 4 Dead 2 comes out, my gf will bitchslap me out of my desk chair. Then again, I do love my PC. I should just bite the bullet. Now the questions are digital version or retail box? CE or standard edition? Oh noes...

     

    Cripes, there are some solid games coming out. Probably my favorite year of games in a long time.

    I'm still playing Fallen Earth, Uncharted 2, Way of the Samurai 3, and Oblivion: GOTY for ps3 (never ran right on my pc). I am having gamer overload.

    Gamer overload is correct. My friends and I were talking about that today. Between Borderlands,Dragon Age, Oblivion, Left 4 Dead 2 and Mass Effect 2 its like madness in a good way. We're poor but we're happy gamers though!

    Tried some dragon age... seems like they're basically just finally getting their older games right with some upgrades and decent new features from other successful games.  The story seems like it's going to be great but not sure what this has for someone looking for something new.  I still think Risen offers the most as far as great fun and some innovation although you could also say that they're finally gettong gothic right.

    So, looking over at the official Bioware boards, the chief complaint with the game amongst many is the dissapointing visuals..?

    Not that graphics are the be-and-end-all, but it was kinda surprisng to hear this after seeing the spectacle marvel that was Mass Effect.

    Hearing this hasn't dampened my enthusiasm one bit, though!

    Edit - ** everything else about the game sounds great. **

    It's not crysis but the graphics are far from bad.

     

    The storyline, gameplay and voice acting is enough to make anyone cream their pants.

    I know the feeling. I feel that way about eastern games in general. The only ones I like are the strategy ones like Nobunaga's Ambition and Romance of the Three Kingdoms. I'd love to pick up the latest NA but last I looked Koei wasn't selling it here which is a shame as they're about the only eastern company I like, lol.

    I guess that depends what you are comparing the graphics to.  They are far from bad and mediocre if this game came out in 2003.. but for 2009? yeah they are really bad.  I was shocked at how bad they are with this game being made by one of the most highly regarded studios in the world. I hope to god SWTOR isn't using such horrible textures.

    I just tried it for half an hour or so, made a rogue. While there is alot i like about the game, i guess i can't get used to the combat system which feels a bit awkward to me.

    Pause, select target, select skill, pause, select party member, select skill, select target, pause..something like that. Guess i'm doing something wrong, but i don't remember that i've had these problems to coordinate combat in Kotor I+II.

    I'm also a little overwhelmed by all the choices after each levelup, not shure what "talent tree" will provide what in the later game etc.

    There is a little too much dialogue for my taste I'm constantly spamming F5 to quicksave to not having to go through all the dialogue scenes again after my party gets killed.

    On the other hand, i don't want to give up o DAO yet, feeling that i could miss an epic adventure because of my inabilities to adjust to the game mechanics :)

    Im building my computer right now(Intel Core i5 with GTS 260 1gb and 4 gb ram) and when im done with that, the first thing on my list to get is Dragon Age : Orgins.  I dont have a XBOX 360 so I have to wait until i finish building my comp.

    I dont know much about the game but it looks great and from all the good press it seems to be getting, I am sold. lol call me easy is ya want.

    The combat mechanics are a little werid but I only pause to setup my "Tactics" then I unpause and fight away.

    stupid question, but can you pause in the console versions? (i just started playing a little bit yesterday)

  • RzepRzep Member UncommonPosts: 767

      My question is: How hard is the game on easy and medium difficulty. I love rpgs but Im more often than not totally rubbish. Maybe its becouse in my youth I was too poor to have a pc and spent my time with a nintendo, but generally rpgs are a tough nut to crack.

    I would not call it hard but you will definately have to use some tactics in your battles. The game is fantastic!!!

    I have to agree, I run the game maxed out and the graphics are simply amazing.

    Far too linear to be called the best RPG ever. Its OK. Its certainly no Morrowind. I don't even think its as good as NWN.

    I find linear to be quite fun when it comes to single-player RPGs. Games like Oblivion are pretty boring to me.



    To each his own. This game is one of the best RPGs I've ever played.
