Stating the truth isn't trolling even if it hurts others' feelings.

DA1 console . DA2 console

This is simple fact.

WOW ME2 is so different on PC...

This is a good thing... Bioware certainly take the platform into consideration, but I'm finding that DA2, and ME2 play better on console... Just feels tighter.

I WILL say that...ME2 WAS a LOT better on console. Some say ME2 was easier on PC...but I found the opposite. Something about the control scheme made it harder for me to center my mouse...unlike most PC shooters I play. For example, even on casual, the vault/hacking you had to do was even HARDER for me with ME2 than it was with ME1...and I didn't have any omnigel.

Part of that is that with the console version I only had 4 blips to match if I decided to play casual vs. 5 on the PC...but what made it hard wasn't the number, but that my mouse was much harder to pinpoint on the blip. In fact the entire mouse targeting on PC made it a HECK of a lot harder with ME2. Console it was dang easy to target, especially for anything like an FPS...probably because it was more an RPG.

I enjoyed the story and conversations on both however...but then it was the same story and conversations so that shouldn't be a surprise at all. The mouse interface on the otherhand drove me batty at times.

DA:O I think is debatable which it was better on. You could get more tactical play with it on PC, but it's zooming in on a face whenever you had a conversation was slightly annoying to me. If I'm zoomed out, just leave it zoomed out for the convo's as well.

They actually did a bang up conversion job for the gameplay and format with how you select skills and abilities for the Console version. I think I like the PC way of doing it better...but the Console was pretty good and I could easily see why someone would say the Console version was better because of that.

The PC master race has no need for auto aim like the console plebeians. Plus the PC graphics are top notch, dem textures.

Very rude to toll, my friend. You don't want to make the PC fanboys cry. :lol:

I don't, PC was a bazillion times better. I've only tried the demo of DA2 on a console, but certainly at the moment, with the lack of auto-attack, there is no way I would play a complete game on either ps3 or x360 when the pc version exists.

Yeah, graphically its better...

It feels like a different game almost... It's not some auto aim code... The whole experience plays differently.

One must say, I hadn't realised how much effort Bioware was putting into the different SKU's until now. Bravo.

Exception being DA2 where they pretty much said, screw PC gamers.

Yes. Most rude. I already have to pay for bandwidth to go on the internet, I can live without an Obsidian Entertainment forum toll.

I WILL say that...ME2 WAS a LOT better on console. Some say ME2 was easier on PC...but I found the opposite. Something about the control scheme made it harder for me to center my mouse...unlike most PC shooters I play. For example, even on casual, the vault/hacking you had to do was even HARDER for me with ME2 than it was with ME1...and I didn't have any omnigel.

You had more trouble with pairs than 10 second frogger? The minigames were so much more lenient in ME2.

[...]My mouse was much harder to pinpoint on the blip. In fact the entire mouse targeting on PC made it a HECK of a lot harder with ME2. Console it was dang easy to target, especially for anything like an FPS...probably because it was more an RPG.

Just tune your mouse sensitivity a bit. I found ME2 to be rather sluggish when it came to aiming, but tweaking the sensitivity does wonders for things like that.

[...]Its zooming in on a face whenever you had a conversation was slightly annoying to me. If I'm zoomed out, just leave it zoomed out for the convo's as well.

It's no different from say, Fallout: New Vegas or Oblivion. Besides, how are you expected to see an NPC's facial expression and admire Morrigan's sneer from fifty meters away?

Angry Joe Review.

Should have given it a lower score but, sigh, raises it because it is 'dragon age'. o:)

Makes a lot of good points, but likes certain things I hated. He liked having to mash the A button!? :ermm: I also actually liked the design and look of Kirkwall. It could have used more variety though considering you spend 80-90% of the game in it. He also barely touches on the repeating areas. I would have spent half the review railing on that problem.

You're still together? That's great! But if you two do decide to get married, we'd all better get a formal announcement! :ermm:

It wouldn't be as bad if Angry Joe wasn't an unfunny monotone manchild.

Same goes for any internet reviewer (mostly angry ones) really.

To me they're kind of like the MST3K of video games. Mocking the bad ones. The whole 'angry' thing as games are expensive and time consuming and bad ones can warrant that anger. So its fun if they do the whole angry routine + some decent jokes added.

True, but I stopped having any respect for Angry Joe when I watched his interview at the VGAs and gained a lot more for Geoff in the process. Watching an "internet star" get his massive ego taken down a notch certainly was entertaining though.

It's pathetic, really.

... this might be going off-topic. We should get back to bitching about DA2.

Interviewing 101: you can't go up against a bow tie.
