That goddamn fucking Revenant at Castle Redcliffe is fucking laying waste to my party. After playing awhile, I have a few complaints:

What the hell is the deal with no ability to change formation? Holy shit, for a game based so much on tactics, your party formation is one of the biggest keys to success. Fuck this PAUSE, click over here, UNPAUSE, PAUSE AGAIN, choose spell, UNPAUSE. I'm all about party management, but holy shit...micromanagement is just fucking annoying.

With all the hordes of undead spawning all around you, coupled with the lack of said party formation configuration, 5 instead of 4 party characters would be nice.

I don't know about you guys, but I've got the PC version...it's pretty fucking hard, even on Normal. I mean, it's do-able but only at a complete loss of gameplay fun; micromanagement is no longer a gameplay style, it's a necessity. Sometimes I like to pause, make a plan, and watch that plan carried out just as much as the next guy, but having to do it every single time for every single encounter just takes the piss out of it. I may as well be playing the script-based Dragon Realms instead of Dragon Age.

Also, THERE'S NO GRINDING!!! WTF?!?!? Sometimes grinding is a necessity to build up your party's strength and your other characters you've got in wait. But nooooo, I decide I wanna change my tactic and the big ugly dude with cornrows gets his ass handed to him in one smack, and why? BECAUSE YOU CAN'T GO BACK AND GRIND ANYTHING!!! Gay.

It is quite epic though.

No grinding? That's a deal-breaker.

In its defense, the pace is very good. You never feel rushed through it and you always feel that there's something to do. I miss the grinding, but it's a good game anyway.

Eh, I'm a good 8 hours into it and i have no complaints about this gameplay. Sure I've had to attempt a few things twice or thrice, but it wouldn't be fun if it was too easy.

I was just gonna say. Ser Perth even told you you could let him and his men in if the fight was too much for you. Don't forget to regularly push Tab to highlight any interactive objects

Ahem. You had guy-on-guy action in Jade Empire, if you wanted to. You could even have a threesome with Silk Fox and Dawn Star.

This factuality in no way surprises me.

How can you possibly be arguing in favor of grinding?

Because it's fun to come back and just fucking own everything. Now I'm not talking MMO grinding...ugh. But a little grinding here and there is always good because Bioware has the uncanny ability to lead you down a path, only once you get there you realize you need more of X or something else and there's no going back.

Yeah, grinding is good. When you put in the work to have an easy time through a dungeon or boss battle, you should have that easy time. Or the feeling of knowing you have a spell or summon coming up, and gaining a few levels before a boss fight to get it.

Assassins Creed 2 is much better than the first (which isn't saying anything), but I don't think it's all that great. Pretty damn satisfying beating people with a blunt object, though. (I think it was a hammer?) Played it for a few hours today.

About to fight Lucifer on Nocturne. Then it's off to Devil Summoner.

Being a History student who is actually studying the Renaissance I'm actually really interested in getting ACII... Might buy it tomorrow... But then again, being a student, I probably can't afford it

Holy crap Dragon Age is friggin' awesome. I'm 20 hours into it and have only completed 10% of the game.

After 20 hours of gameplay, the aforementioned gripes are really the only ones I have with it. I've been waiting for this game for years. Bioware is back!

Dude, seriously? My main gripe with Bioware is that every game weather it's KOTOR or Jade Empire is way too short. I need to check this game out.

I'm lovin' the game... but I can almost feel something is going to push me away from it so I'm hesitant. Plus, I wish I hadn't picked a rogue.
