Dragon Age 2

Recommended Posts

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.

too many angry people doing angry reviews these days on the internet


Let's Play The Temple of Elemental Evil (Complete)
Let's Play Neverwinter Nights and Hordes of the Underdark

Let's Play Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

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:

That pretty much seems to be the default state of the Internet...

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.

I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

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.

:lol:

 

Oh, wait, it's a February 8th article.

 

In other news: VGChartz sales figures for DA2 shows a rather large decline in sales. It looks like a radiation decay graph right now.

 

Guess they didn't get the CoD fans on board.

Can you have sex in CoD2?

Yes but the have a don't show don't tell policy at Infinity Ward.


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Well, I got it the day it was released...but I was SORELY disappointed.

 

ME1 and 2 got me, was excited by changes that sounded a lot like what they did with Me1 to ME2, making it more appealing to the CoD gamers as you may call it.

 

For me, if I had known now what I found out when playing DA2...it definately would NOT have gotten me. May have even skipped DA2, or at least waited till it hit the bargain bin (it's worth a bargain bin price).

 

Hopefully ME3 continues to appeal to me. That's still a must buy day of release sale for me...we'll see after that.

 

I did play DAO and DAA, I actually thought they were better games than DA2...personally speaking...even if they are more RPG centric than DA2. Something about the older ones simply appealed to me more...

Can your fantasy make DA2 better and if so could I borrow it?

Are you making an effort, or are you really that retarded? I've quoted a source to go along with the figures. Not that many people take VGChartz seriously, but it's a decent enough general indicator in lieu of NPD figures.

No, no it's not. It's pure fantasy made up numbers. NPD itself isn't 100% accurate but at least it's logical nad they put some effort into it. But vgchartyz is a joke.

 

The only retarted person here is the one who takes vgchartz as 'gospel'.

I think so, yes. The only other one I knew about was old news many years back, right? Maybe I'm just confused and they're one and the same, lol!

 

I asked her BTW, she said no.

 

When she's ready, she'll probably ask you!

Woman after my own heart, but I'm only on my second play through. I LOVE this game, am spending hours and hours investigating every nook and cranny, doing every possible quest, walking from map to map just to hear party banter. I will be so glad when they get the patch out, because the bugs are, well, bugging me. :) I could nitpick here and there, story-wise, but overall I think it's an awesome effort which will be more awesome after the patch, lol!

Really? AFAIK Bioware said DA2 sold 1 million copies in two weeks. VGChartz pegs it at 927,857 in two weeks discounting digital distribution (Doubling PC sales figures to account for such would yield 1,109,689). Unless you live in the land of unattainable standards and eternal failure, I'd say that's a pretty decent estimate.

You do understand when there are public announcement about sales figures from a company, they do NOT state exact sales numbers right? You do understand all of the factors that surround such an announcement as well as why they do not ever release actual sales numbers right?

 

VGChartz are fake magical fantasy numbers. He is 100% correct in that assessment.

I'm completely aware of Bioware saying "Broke the one million mark" instead of "Sold ____ copies" in two weeks. If Bioware is at all honest, that would mean they've sold at least a million copies of DA2 in two weeks. VGChartz gives a comparable sales figure, and as such I see no point in dismissing their estimates out of hand because they're not NPD figures.

Nope, I don't pretend to understand commerce, I'm not a businessman.
