Awakening is pretty funkadelic too so far.

Argh 'The Fade' is so fucking annoying! :x I had to turn the difficulty down because my rogue couldn't solo any of the mobs.

as long as your crystarium level 9 is full for the classes you use you should be fine, truth be told the last bosses are a bit of a let down

I am now. Before I got the golum it was a right bitch.
The problem is that I fancy myself a bit of an archer, or at least I would if any of the bows were half decent. I allways do more dps by dual wielding, but I was determined to stick it out untill I got something decent which left me with shit melee equiptment. Add to that really low constitution (I'm a rogue, I figured I'd use Alistair as a tank and hit from a distance, maybe getting in some backstabs if they get close) and I die pretty easily. I'm not entirely sure what role a rogue is intneded for tbh.

All over now though. Returned to redcliffe with the mages to exorcise the demon from the kid.

Really want to get back home to finish it :D

I think the fact that you can get bored in ten minutes says that you shouldn't play RPGs. Or read a book. Or watch a film. Or wait for a bus. Or...

thats why god invented FPS and RTS. nothing better then blowing the shit out of something when your bored. the one game, that has RPG elements, i love to play is GTA 4. i think it did well to to have enough RPG elements and TPS elements to not bore the crap out of people. im on my 5th time going through to get the last of all the achievements.

It is generic as fuck, I'll give you that, but I've got nothing against the tried and tested Tolkein formula and I've so far found the gameplay to be challenging and tactical.

tbh, i never play RPGs tactically beyond picking a balanced team
usually in dragon age i go with sten/oghren, alistair and wynne/morrigan, and let them do whatever they want to :lol:
