    Admittedly, fantasy/rpg/wow shit isn't really my genre so I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to a game like dragon age. I'm finding it's just too much micromanagment.

    I'm about 5 hours or so into it. Did the the prologue quests and now I have the main quests after lothering. I tried going to the elves and killing the werewolf only to find I had to turn around when I got through the west woods because I was all out of potion - barely made it out alive. Decided to come back to that quest later.

    Went to red cliff and started the zombie quest and I can't get out of it. I can kill the first wave and once I move down to the town center, everyone dies and the waves of zombies destroy my characters. Seriously? I started a quest my characters are too weak for and I can't abort it. Why the fuck is this game so hard and why is the friendly AI so stupid? Wish I could control my main character and not worry so much about my allies like Mass Effect :hs:

    Play Demon's Souls instead. It's much easier.

    Hard to break off after already investing several hours into it. The voice work is top notch and I like the story line. I want to play it, I'm just frustrated as fuck.

    I don't think the game is very accessible to those who have never rolled a 21 sided die and haven't spent their childhood playing dnd. It's not really for people who dabble in this genre. I played through oblivion, fallout, mass effect but I haven't been this frustrated by a game in a while.

    The knights? They die too. I've tried that. They keep spawning and eventually everyone dies.

    you're obviously doing something wrong if they die

    heal them or something

    the zombies down in the city don't keep spawning, and the 4 or so zombies that spawn from the castle shouldn't even scratch them

    I am definitely doing something wrong. Not disputing that. Game just takes the player's knowledge in this genre for granted. I know dick about fantasy stuff.

    you don't need to know shit about the genre to know that you should be luring the zombies down in the city up to the knights for them to slay

    if the knights are dying somehow then i don't know what the fuck you're doing unless you've been standing around for an hour or something

    don't lure ALL the zombies in the city up to the knights

    lure a few at a time

    this game may be quite hard if you couldn't save before every single battle

    edit: actually no unless you are playing on hard and above

    seriously...any game requires strategy. it doesnt require strategy ONLY because it is a fantasy RPG. sure, you can run around and kill shit, just like in cod, but its a lot easier if you fucking use your head and dont run in rambo style with a fucking handaxe.

    you are not rambo.
    this is not cod.

    take it slow. pause the game to set the strategies of your team.

    win.

    where's your toque, eh?
    Finally got to this game tonight. Don't care for it one fucking bit. Hate the combat, hate the menus, hate the fucking endless dialogue.

    Maybe in a few months I'll give it another go, but it's not what I was expecting at all. [​IMG]

    I just installed this now cause of this thread and couldnt stand the menus and slow gameplay on the pc. I hate how you have to click somewhere to move but if you click like the inside of a building your character will just stand still. Guess im to use to the way diablo 2 perfected the clicking movement/pacing years ago to go backwards.
